Ellen Dickson


I met and hired Robert in September, 2011 to help me with my campaign website. I was running for Mayor of our City, having served as a council member for some years.

After my election, I chose to keep the campaign website up, and run it as a place for community news and events. During that time, Robert not only transformed the website to meet those needs, he maintained the website from the technical point of view (making sure that it was always on the cutting edge of the newest technologies, such as mobile friendliness, etc.), and also acted as a content manager for the site. For four years we consulted on a weekly basis on the site's content strategy, as well as social media strategies related to the site.

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. He is a polished professional not just as a web programmer but as a communications professional. With his prior experience in finance and management, he would be a strong asset to any organization seeking to achieve an objective using the latest digital technologies, whether it be a not-for-profit, local area business or political campaign.

I recommend him highly.

Other Client Testimonials

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.

The new site [built by Robert] 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.

Mary Schaenen, Co-President , The Madison Education Foundation, Madison, NJ

[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.
