“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. ”
“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.”
“My name is Tom Craig, I have had Elevate Web Designs create several websites for me in the last couple of years. Jill is very responsive and creative. She took my ideas for what I was looking for and added her expertise to make the sites better than my expectations. Her fees are fair and she responds quickly to changes and modifications needed as the website evolves in the changing marketplace, I would highly recommend her to create a website that you are looking for.”
“I am a Los Angeles interior designer and have recently launched a new business with my two partners. We had the pleasure of working with Jill on the creation of our new website and blog. She did an amazing job giving us exactly what we wanted - a simple and modern web design that is easy to use. She is extremely knowledgeable and fast. I would highly recommend Jill to anyone wanting to create a website within their budget.”
"Being professional sports & fitness trainers with a product vision, we had no idea how to build an effective Ecommerce solution for our start-up. Jill really took this project by the horns and did a fabulous job for us. We are forever grateful!"

"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.

“Jill did a great job creating my mosaic website, she was able to create what I had in mind, a site that shows my work in a clean, elegant and also artistic layout. ”
“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.”
“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.”

“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 have recommended clients to Jill because she is a professional web designer that can help clients succeed with their web presence. I would highly recommend Jill for web design and other related work such at Search Engine Optimization (SEO).”
“I had the opportunity to have Jill as my instructor as part of a web design certification program at UNLV. She is a knowledgeable, passionate professional who provided an insider's understanding of web design and development that I found invaluable.”

“Jill has provided us outstanding service over the years as our web needs have evolved. She is always very responsive and does a wonderful job in collaborating with us and being very creative in her solutions.”
“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.”
“It was difficult to choose just three attributes that best describe Jill. She is wonderful to work with, friendly, knowledgeable, and helpful. I always tell her what I have in mind when I want to change or update my site. She is quick and helps me to make my website the best! Also amazing on getting my site to be listed on the first page of Google using SEO. Thank you, JILL!!”

"Jill Merk and her firm, Elevate Web Designs does fantastic work. 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. I’m a better marketing professional for my clients having Elevate Web Designs as part of my creative team."
Tina Past, Principal
"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!"

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."
