Website: 

We retained Robert to build a website for our Educational Foundation in Madison, NJ in early 2012. Our site at the time was a static HTML site, built by a volunteer. Keeping it up-to-date in real time was difficult if not impossible, sometimes. insofar as it required not only special software, but also someone trained to use that software.

Robert helped us come up with a clean, modern design that was compatible with our newly designed logo, which we were already using on our marketing materials. The site created a place where teachers could download forms to apply for grants, and where we could demonstrate vividly to the public how our grants have been put to use. Of course, it also became a focal point for promoting our fundraisers. We also created a "members only" space on the site so that the Foundation could keep digitized versions of our corporate governance documents in one central location, something which we badly needed at the time.

The new site gave us a big push into the 21st century. Our officers and trustees are delighted with the results. Donors are regularly complimenting us on our site. The site was a key initiative in our efforts to raise private donations for our schools. And of course, the site stays up to date regularly, thanks to our ability to login and add or modify the content, and Robert's patient and thorough training.

We can't say enough about Robert's professionalism and skill in delivering our site.

Other Client Testimonials

I strongly feel that my web presence and Robert's accompanying counsel on content strategies played a significant role in an what many in the community are describing as an extremely successful term as mayor.

Ellen Dickson , ellendickson.com (Former Mayor of Summit, NJ)

Our small local history society desperately needed an attractive, easy-to-navigate, and easy-to-update website — and now we have it. Robert was always able to find a way to accommodate our afterthoughts--and sometimes unusual requests — for features and I wouldn’t change a thing about the site now.

We get much positive feedback about the site and we are regularly contacted through it, with inquiries and new membership or renewals.

Lynne Ranieri , The Millburn-Short Hills Historical Society

[Thanks to the website Robert built] ... instead of declining, our membership is increasing. With the old site, I used to get an email inquiry once a year, maybe. Now I get an average of one a week from people interested in Irish Philately. What more can an organization ask from a website?

John Sharkey , The Eire Philatelic Assocation

Robert's expertise and personal touch have made creating and maintaining my personal website and that of The Baroque Orchestra of New Jersey a positive and successful experience. The look and feel are professional and expressive.  Information is clearly found and presented. His response to every issue or problem that arises is always quick and complete. His personal touch and concern help make the website personal as well as professional.

Robert Butts, Conductor , The Baroque Orchestra of New Jersey

Robert built a new dynamic site on Drupal, and trained us on how to use it. The results have been remarkable. Thanks to this new website, our donations have increased and participation of new members from the community has gone up.

Helen Ann Rosenfeld , The Chatham (Borough) NJ Historical Society
