Website Testimonials“Our company approached Elevate Web Designs because we were in need of updating our website. In addition, Elevate Web Designs assisted with the creation of two new websites. Our web designer, Jill Maturino was extremely knowledgeable and always provided us with critical feedback which allowed us to understand the do’s and don’ts of web designing. Ms. Maturino’s diligence helped improve our websites branding, allowing viewers to browse through our website without confusion. The whole experience while working with Elevate Web Designs was pleasant. No phone call or email went un answered, follow ups were in a timely manner and doing business with them was always easy. We chose this business through word of mouth and now we would like to recommend it to anyone seeking help creating or improving a website.”

“Bennett Trenchless Engineers hired Elevate Web Designs on the advice of Marketing guru, Kathrine Berry, to redesign our very outdated website. Jill (Merk) Maturino, was a delight to work with. Jill listened to all our ideas, preferences and offered expert advice. The process was really seamless and now we have a website that we are very proud of. This website design stands out among the sites of our competitors.
Thanks Jill, we are so happy with the result and appreciate your collaboration.”

“I had the pleasure of working with Jill on my website and couldn’t be happier. After being disappointed with 2 previous web designers I found Jill and will use her services exclusively from this point forward. She is prompt, professional and has the unique blend of design expertise matched with a sharp business sense which is hard to find in the artistic realm. Jill is easy to work with, explains the process and options in non-technical terms which makes them easy to understand and her follow thru is unmatched in the industry. She is a true professional and I would highly recommend her for your next project.”

“Project completed!! Jill at Elevate Web Designs was a pleasure to work with throughout the project. She was extremely professional and responsive. Jill has a very creative eye and took the time to understand my business before translating my vision into a beautiful, classy website with great functionality. Simply put, she exceeded expectations! I would highly recommend Elevate Web Designs to anyone and am looking forward to starting my next project with them soon.”

“As an old-school family business that wrote their first website in Netscape, we were timid when it came to the ever-evolving worldwide web. We knew we’d lost touch with the lingo and wanted someone who would offer us thorough, informative and simple solutions to upgrade our websites to a modern, mobile-friendly format. Not only was Elevate Web Designs easy to talk to, they knew the value of communication. They were regular folks catering to the needs of regular folks; — not just a call center or set of automated e-mail messages saying “we’ll get in touch with you soon!” They moved quickly when we asked for design changes, using our ideas and wants while providing their own creative flair. They processed the data entry and mind-numbing task of reconstructing over 70 pages worth of content with speed and accuracy. And if there was a problem, a question, a concern, or a last-minute change, it was handled with friendly service. These folks are great to work with, and we can’t say enough about them, and we will definitely keep them in mind with the ever-changing web world.”

“After being with our web developer for over 11 years we thought it was time for a change as their prices seemed to keep going up. It took us a while before finally deciding to look for a new web developer. We dreaded the whole process because we were not a large company and we were on a tight budget. We initially contacted over ten web developers/firms and we were quickly able to eliminate more than half because they were either too large and expensive or did not return our phone calls or emails. After interviewing the remaining contenders we ending up selecting Elevate Web Design based on the willingness of wanting to work within our requirements, budget and excellent initial communication. We are very pleased and fortunate with our selection. Work is completed within our required time line and budget. Communication is very prompt and courteous. Jill has provided us with consultation and made minor modifications from time to time, all without being on the clock and gouging us like our previous web developer/firm. This really shows us that she knows the industry and she stands behind her work. ”

“Advanced Audiology is a growing medical clinic.  Unfortunately our website was outdated and unable to provide our patients with the current information needed.  Elevated Web Designs came to our rescue.  Jill Merk wrote up a proposal and kept within the timeline and price on the proposal.  She was also proactive in suggesting options that we hadn’t considered.  Jill is one of the most professional and reliable people I’ve worked with.  I continue to use her and refer others to her whenever I can.”

Dr. Barbara Jenkins, AuD, BCABA

“We were completely blown away by Jill’s ability to translate our design just as we envisioned it.  She is extremely fast to respond and deliver. I would highly recommend Elevate Web Designs to anyone looking for a site that has the WOW factor!”

“Elevate Web Designs continues to win our business and is now our preferred design and development resource for both us and our clients. We’ve worked with many talented companies and individuals over the years, but no one has been able to match the speed of production with the level of quality and competitive costs as Elevate. We’re already lining up more projects, and it’s both a competitive advantage as well as a solid reassurance knowing we can count on Elevate to execute in such a professional and responsive manner.”

Nicholas Podrasky
Tessera Marketing

“Jill is a rare web designer — one who understands the art of business, pays attention to deadlines and budget, and posses exceptional design and creative skills.

She starts each web project by learning the client’s short and long-term objectives, their products or services, and how those offerings may benefit their customers. From this foundation she creates a website that reflects her client’s brand, the benefits of the products or services, and is easy for web visitors to navigate and to use.

I first met Jill as a student of her Adobe Illustrator and Photoshop classes at UNLV Continuing Education’s Internet Design & Technology certificate program. Since then, we’ve worked together on a number of client projects where I have provided SEO and copywriting services.

Bottom line: Jill is a joy to work with!”

“Jill Merk was a pleasure to work with. She was very clear upfront on the price, what she could do for me, and what I needed to do in order for the website to be created. She took my very vague ideas and made a beautiful website that is easy to shop and easy for me to make small changes to like price and pictures. I am very happy and would recommend Elevate Web Designs to anyone needing a new or updated website.”

Linda Wilson, Denver Website Testimonial“I am a photographer with my own company, Your World Our Lens. My site is beautiful, but was not mobile friendly, nor was it easy to upload new photos or make changes. Jill with Elevate Web Designs researched ways for my site to be mobile, and easy ways for me to quickly update my photos and video on my site. She made sure I understood those options before moving forward to make the changes. She was easy to work with, and very professional. Now my site can be viewed on all Apple platforms – that is HUGE for a small business like me! Thank you Jill and Elevate Web Designs for bringing me in to the future!

“I am a certified BodyTalk practitioner with an office in Lakewood. When Jill suggested that I get a webpage I was skeptical about how an internet presence would impact my business. I have to say that I have been amazed at the difference it has made in my practice. Thanks to Jill, when a potential client logs onto my website they have a complete understanding of what I do, what the experiences of previous clients has been, where I’m located, and my fees. This has saved me hours on the phone and new clients able to download intake forms, which enables me to spend more time talking to my clients and getting to know them instead of waiting for them to finish paperwork. As someone who has no computer knowledge whatsoever, Jill’s guidance was invaluable in constructing a website that was easy for me to navigate and was user friendly as well. Additionally, Jill is wonderful to work with . She’s skilled at what she does, friendly, and completely professional. ”

“Jill helped my website dramatically increase it’s rankings in Google. This has improved my business! She is a very prompt worker in every aspect. When I needed work done to my site, she would have it done the next day by the time I’d wake up. I’ve been very happy with the persistance she has to make her clients happy. She is also reasonable in her pricing.”

“After two disasters with web designers, we hired Jill (aka Elevate Web Designs) on the recommendation of UNLV (who she does extensive work for). She guided our CDC Consulting website (and its children – CDC Gaming Seminars and CDC Gaming Reports) and allowed us to grow all three business online resources. Three years ago we asked Jill to assisted us on the Arts America project – and due to her hard work and integrity, ArtsAmerica.org is now the #1 cultural arts website in the country. With Jill comes many things – hard work, a professional and positive attitude and she is terrific at seeking out other top-flight (and high-value) internet experts. What you do not get is drama or a surprise at the end of the month – her bills are always fair.”

Jeffrey Compton

“I had the pleasure of working with Jill on a design/build website project. She had cutting edge knowledge about project management, coding and the latest technologies. Her work was without error and in each phase, finished before the scheduled deadline. Jill was a fabulous team player and so adept at working smart in the execution of a large project. I look forward to working with Jill again! “

“I first met Jill while taking a course in the Educational Outreach program to acquire my internet design technology certification which enables me to build websites for clients. Jill was very thorough and knowledgeable as an instructor and her business portfolio proved her competency in her web design field. She is also very personable and easy to work with. I recommend Jill in helping any future clients with their web design and other media related work.”

Lisa Tsukiyama

“I have known Jill for many years and she has impressed me with her knowledge and web design abilities. She is capable of learning new ideas and incorporating those into her design and is a very driven business owner, having successfully run her own business for many years.

I would highly recommend Jill for web design and other related work such at Search Engine Optimization (SEO).”

“Jill has been great to work with. My website is like Japanese to me and she has been creative and innovative with ideas and ways to develop my website to its fullest potential. I send her stuff and ask where it should go. Other times, she offers suggestions that I would never have thought of. Every single time I ask her to make a small change or addition to my website, it’s done either the same day or the next day. Jill is easy to work with and down to earth. I recommend her to anyone needing someone to help create or manage their website.”

Also amazing on getting my site to be listed on the first page of Google using SEO. Thank you, JILL!!”

Whether for a novice or experienced client, Jill is able to interpret their vision and objectives of their web site with creativity, acuity and speed. Her recommendations and expertise are spot on, and most importantly she is responsive, on time and delightful to work with.

“Jill, thank you. A couple of nice customer feedback things for you, in addition to providing a good professional product in a timely manner for a reasonable price: you kept on me for things that needed doing without being a pest, but you also didn’t forget about me. You also were straightforward about your suggestions when I asked (etc: you preferred the gold over the black). Again, it was the moderation thing – you didn’t try to drive what you wanted, but you didn’t leave me just twisting in the wind with no ideas. I really really liked that you didn’t get argumentative over anything, something I’ve noticed more and more on web-exchanges with people. And you didn’t balk at changes, ya just did them. Thank you!”

“Jill, I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate the high level of service you’ve provided all the times I’ve worked with you over these past two years. There are few people that consistently work at the same high level that you do – both in terms of quality of work and responsiveness. It’s really a pleasure to work with you.”

Dave Newton, SPHR, MBA

Jill has designed several websites for me over the past few years. Her work is exceptional, as is her attention to detail, friendly service, and turn around time. I rely on her professional judgment while designing my site, leaving me more time and energy to focus on my business. I highly recommend Elevate Web Designs.

“I am a creative person who has the “vision” in her mind…. Jill is the web professional that turned my concept into a working and viable website. She has been open to changes, exploration of new technology…., and I am not a techie so everything is new…. She handles each request on a timely and efficient manner. The thing I like most about Jill is that she always asks for clarification if my vision is a little light on the pragmatic details. She finds a way to get it done. My website is beautiful. I have used her for two start up microbusiness people and then I used her for my start up. If you are a microbusiness owner who needs site that will translate your vision and have some design flair along with operational feasability consider Jill.”
