What They're Saying About Us
Thank you- we are enjoying our beautiful new website! The layout format you gave us is perfect and fits our business well. It's so great to be able to add or change something at a moment's notice. I'm going to add something to our blog page later today ... and we are now proud to refer people to our site.

Marlene is an excellent communicator who explained all of the options for our website redesign. She took the time to understand exactly what our organization was trying to achieve. During the design phase, no question was too silly and no problem too small. Aardvark’s team was responsive in dealing with adjustments during development of the site. They were especially creative in addressing our needs for a very unique functionality and were always willing to go the extra mile to make sure the project was done to our satisfaction. We set pretty high standards for the website and Aardvark helped us reach our goals.

As a business owner I am very aware that service can make or break a business. That is why I was so delighted to have contracted Aardvark Web Works to design a viable website for our insurance agency.
Owner, Marlene Frykman, was great – in both understanding what we needed to do to create a site that attracted readers who were hungry for information, and those who wanted insurance ‘straight talk’ in helping them make good decisions on their insurance coverage.
After completion of the website, Marlene’s staff has been readily accessible when we had questions on additional website changes. Not to be left with cumbersome changes, etc is worth the money spent. Learning technical information on layman’s terms makes it fun to update and process new ideas on the website.

Marlene is not your run-of-the-mill web designer. She listens carefully and her recommendations are customized to help take your business to the next level. She is creative in her approaches and the end result is a web site that is not just a placeholder, but really a marketing tool. After the completion of a project Marlene is available to share her knowledge and advice in ways that continue to help. I would be delighted to work with Marlene again.

In 2010 I sought proposals for building two websites. One of the companies I contacted was Aardvark Web Works. I spoke with company president Marlene Frykman. I thought their price and terms were fair and their previous experience made me feel I would be in good hands. I was also very impressed by their estimate. It was very detailed and well thought out. Based on this I hired Aardvark Web Works. Together (I designed the look & feel) we developed the two sites separately with the first being a model for the second. Being a graphic designer and former programmer, I had very specific ideas on the design and functionality of the sites. I can get very picky on things like layout, alignment, etc. Marlene and her developer Alex understood this and were open minded and willing to work with me to reach the final goals. Both Marlene and Alex were willing to do the research necessary to find the best solutions, noting the pros and cons of each. Ultimately they were instrumental in selecting the correct one. I am very happy with the two sites that resulted from our collaboration. If you hire Aardvark Web Works you will get a partner well versed in the latest web technology. You’ll also get one that listens and makes the effort to get it right.

Marlene has exceptional listening, visualization and technical skills. She was able to creatively craft an amazing and effective website for my interior design business with minimal direction from me. Marlene is personable, detail-oriented and provides outstanding service at reasonable cost.
Every time we work together either on my clients or on Marlene's, I enjoyed that experience. Marlene is an experienced, skilled professional with natural abilities dealing with clients in all situations.

When I decided I was going to convert and combine my html static website and blog to a single WordPress site, I knew there were parts of the process that I was not up to doing myself. I wanted to do as much I could on my own, then hand it over to an expert to do the final part.
I turned to Aardvark Web Works, LLC as the experts I knew would be able to complete the project for me. I'm so glad I did! With the help of their WordPress expert, I was able to get my questions answered up front and felt comfortable with letting them complete it without hesitation.
The most important thing that I wanted to accomplish was to keep intact any external links, existing Page Rank and SEO, and blog subscribers I had built up to that point. It's been nearly a week since the final "move" and there is no sign of anything negative. The traffic has stayed the same, the redirects are all working, and Google seems happy with everything.
The team at Aardvark Web Works made sure the transition went smoothly. I couldn't be more pleased with the results and I would never hesitate to recommend them to anyone wanting some extra help making this kind of change to their website."

I wanted to inform you of the great experience I had creating our website through your company. The process from start to finish was very smooth and I felt very informed every step of the way. Your staff was very detailed in listening to what I wanted the site to be as well as very helpful and creative in the design and overall "look" of the site. I more than appreciated your professionalism in keeping the project and myself on task through the many milestones we reached throughout the process.
Since the site has been completed, I have received many compliments on the professionalism and simplicity of the website overall. I am proud and excited to refer my customers to the site to find out more about our company and what we do. There were many goals when creating this website but most importantly I wanted our website to stand out from our competition. I feel that the website has met this goal with the extreme talent of you and rest of your team at Aardvark Web Works. Thanks again for all your help!!

We encountered problems with our initial programming team in terms of time and language. … We realized that a programming change was needed. We began to search for a team familiar with the software chosen by the initial team, who also possessed workable knowledge, plus the ability and experience to take over a project already bogged down by too many glitches. Aardvark Web Works possessed those qualities and met our immediate needs. We felt confidence in our choice within a short time. We found the right partners with Aardvark Web Works to move forward!

We recently hosted a booth at the Taste of Lincolnshire, an annual event, which generated over 30 solid landscape leads for our fall services. Several people came back the next day to comment on how excited they were at viewing our new web site. The presence you created for Mormino Landscape Services, Inc. is not only compelling but easy to navigate. Our clients want visualization when they view our work and Aardvark Web Works has provided that through the web site. We are thrilled with the creativity you and your staff possess. More importantly, it is apparent to us, that our web site stands out among the very best. Thank you and your staff.
