As a nonprofit, it is very important to us to have a usable and visually appealing website to attract potential members and donors, as well as having a venue to keep current members up-to-date on classes and events at the Y. When the YMCA of the USA announced that we would be changing our visual identity and logo, we realized this would be the perfect opportunity to update the YMCA of Portsmouth website. We did some research, met with Rich, and knew WDTP, Inc. was the perfect fit for us. Our website now has a clean look with increased functionality that meets all the Y-USA graphic standards. Thank you to everyone at WDTP!

Short of publishing the pages of a diary, it is often difficult to summarize an experience that took place over the course of several months. Nonetheless, I will try to convey to the best of my ability the remarkable experience I had with Susan and Richard at wdtp.com.
The two of them work as a closely-knit team, each taking care of the area of expertise in which they specialize. Susan is a fine graphic designer and is fully conversant with color theories as well as graphical concepts. She is most effective in insuring that her work not only speaks to the eye of the viewer, but also guides their mind.
Richard is an immensely creative and talented person who has the gift to turn raw ideas into websites. Nothing seems to exceed his abilities: â€œRichard, could you please add this feature to the website?â€: â€œSure, no problemâ€ is his trademark answer. â€œCould you tweak the look if this page?â€: â€œSure, right awayâ€. â€œCould you add some pizzazz to this screen?â€: â€œConsider it done!â€. â€œCould you modify the angle to the earth axis?â€ â€¦ well, that may take a couple days...
Susan and Richard took my project from a sketch on a piece of paper to a fully developed world-class website, and did so almost effortlessly. Words can hardly describe my appreciation for their fabulous work. I will say, however, that I look forward to working with them again in the future as they patiently inject their creativity into my ideas to create a product that, no doubt, will once again exceed my expectations.

I highly recommend wdtp.com for all your website needs, they are very professional, approachable and receptive to the ideas of the client. As an interior designer with an eye for color and attention to detail being part of my business, it was important to me to convey this in my site. I made many changes throughout the process and their patience was invaluable to me in creating the end result I visualized.

I was referred to WDTP when I first launched my company back in 2003. I remember meeting with Rich, and leaving disappointed because although I was impressed, I felt he was â€œtoo expensiveâ€ for my budget at the time, and I couldn't afford to hire WDTP. I hired a less expensive web designer, and rationalized my decision based on finances.
3 years later, I found myself needing to completely overhaul my web presence; clearly, hiring a less expensive designer had been a big mistake, and actually cost me far more money than had I hired WDTP from the beginning. Choosing the less expensive option cost me valuable time and moneyâ€¦expensive lesson learned! I've been working with WDTP ever since â€“ they have designed numerous websites and database projects for me.
Rich is amazing â€“ he is incredibly talentedâ€¦creative, bright, engaged. But, even more important to me is that he is personally committed to my business success. Unlike so many vendor relationships where I am simply an account, Rich and Susan take a genuine interest in my progress. Cheesy as it may sound, I feel like they are business partners. They proactively look for ways to help me generate business, and are as anxious about my results as I am.
The past few years have been tough in the real estate market, and I was forced to make drastic cuts in a number of segments of my business in order to stay on budget. One thing I was unwilling to cut was my online marketing strategy budget, and actually, I increased my investment in technology, despite considerable pressure to the contrary. That decision has served me well, and I am convinced that much of our overall business success is directly attributable to our online marketing success.
I feel blessed to have Rich and Susan on my team. If you are struggling with a decision about who to hire to help you with your web presence/strategy or about how much itâ€™s appropriate that you spend, please donâ€™t hesitate to call me. I would be more than happy to share my personal experience and thoughts about WDTP.

On behalf of East Beach, I would like to thank you and your team at WDTP for creating a fabulous new website for our waterfront community. The new website look is very fresh, up to date and is full of great pictures that beautifully showcase East Beach. This is exactly the look we wanted and we are getting rave reviews from everyone that has seen it. You easily articulated the web design vernacular so that we could understand it, and your process and patience helped us stay on track as we tweaked all the details. Your sense of humor, professionalism, attention to detail and understanding of our needs made it a pleasure to work with you. I would not hesitate to recommend WDTP to anyone looking for a good web design firm. Thanks again for a great result.

To develop a great website you need people that truly understand all aspects of web design. The team at wdtp web development undoubtedly understands web design. We greatly appreciate your work in designing the City Center at Oyster Point website. Your understanding of our needs and your talent and creativity has resulted in a great product.
It has been a pleasure to work with you, and we look forward to our continuing to work with you in future projects.

I just wanted to tell you how much we LOVE the website! We have gotten several compliments on it and can't wait to share with other customers. Thank you again! And thank you for listening to our input but also being creative and adding your own edits.

A partnership with WDTP is exactly what we'd been looking for. Previous web developer experiences were sub-par for our company and simply didn't meet the needs of our growing model. [WDTP] is easy to communicate with, always provides alternate solutions and continues to help our web presence rise to the level we expect. The biggest distinguishing factor between [WDTP] and others is [their] ability to look for the easiest or most simple solution as opposed to a difficult or prolonged one. That focus on simplicity helps our projects to progress and our goals to be met! Thank you for your continued partnership with the Tide, Bach FM and WYDaily.com!

I'd like to thank you for your creativity and efforts to develop a much-needed upgrade to our Web site, www.catlab.net. Although it has only been published for a few days, we are already receiving compliments from staff and customers. In addition to the creative skills demonstrated by you and your staff, the overall experience was one of professionalism. You clearly outlined the project procedure and followed it to the letter. I was introduced to your company through one of your previous clients and will act on any opportunity to recommend you to future prospects.

On behalf of NRHA, I want to thank you and your staff for the great new website we are now showing off! We are receiving nothing but praise for its look, navigation, wealth of information, and ease of use. The typical comment is WOW. Thank you for being so easy to work with, and so accommodating. You have been very patient, and helpful every step of the way. Out of all the proposals we received, your approach was the most thorough, and gave the most attention to structure, what our goals were, and how the site would be used. You made us look at our whole organization with fresh eyes, to help us see how others viewed us, so we could better meet our customers needs. Whenever anyone asks if I know a good web developer, I tell them to RUN, not walk, to WDTP. Thanks.

Everyone I have spoken with is very impressed with the website. I received several compliments regarding how much planning went into its features as well as compliments on the overall upscale, contemporary look of the site. You took many diverse ideas and created a beautiful streamlined product that serves the public as well as our membership.

Words cannot express the appreciation I have for the outstanding job you did in creating my website. I am so thrilled with it! You perfectly captured the essence of me and my business. I will be forever grateful.
First, I must comment on the initial impression you made on me during our telephone discussion. I interviewed several companies before I selected WDTP. Besides being impressed with your portfolio, without a doubt the time you spent talking to me and the sincere interest you expressed in my business and website needs significantly influenced my decision.
Second, your attention to the details of my business and its foundation (the heart philosophy) has not gone unnoticed and is most appreciated. The flow of the site, the overall look and feel of, and the graphics are perfect.
Last, by no means least, I want to thank you for your overall patience with my questions, concerns, and edits. Being that I was a novice to the web development process and being that I am a detailed person, I am so appreciative that you maintained your professionalism and sense of humor.
Starting a business from the ground up as you know is a very complex undertaking. I truly believe that the website you have created for me will greatly contribute to my success!

We NEVER expected the website you created for us to bring us a potential client out of the blue. As I mentioned when we first met, we only wanted the site to give us credibility for potential clients we had already contacted. Wow. This guy is in Germany right now and owns a lot free and clear in Skimino Landing. So, I just wanted to say THANK you for not only a terrific website that I can add to, but for putting it in the search engines in a way that allows people like Mr. Baker to find us!

In the first two weeks after my world wide launch, two brand new Clients have been secured, having connected with me through the Contact Us page.
If it weren't for you, I would no doubt still be without visitors, without new business, and utterly without purpose. Investing in your help was one of the smartest decisions I've ever committed to. And to think, you made the whole process painless, a breeze really.
