Customer service and response times were amazing. 

Working with Glory made me feel like I had a friend in my corner who was looking out for the Arboretum’s interests. 

Our regular meetings allowed us to make progress on a regular basis and brainstorm ideas that would meet the goals we had for the website. Glory always went the extra mile in watching out for ways to improve and enhance our site

Glory is a self-starter. We had a problem with our site not showing up on the first page when we were searched for in Google. She found ways to make us a #1 listing on the first page and continues to enhance our site. 

Glory is friendly, professional, and listens carefully to what your goals are with a site. [You will get more than you pay for as Glory gives you added value of her time even when she isn’t “on the clock.”] 

We are extremely pleased with our website. We receive many compliments about the beauty and easy use of our site. 

We have also increased revenue through our online giving options as well as a number of wedding requests here at the Arboretum.

Glory created so many improvements for us.

When we started working with her, we had been in a web redesign for a few months, with still not much progress. Glory was able to jump in and make suggestions that fit our needs.

This project went extremely fast and was done much sooner than I had ever anticipated.

I never had to worry about her follow-up with me or sending me something she said she would.

The first time we saw a preview of our website, we were blown away. We just could not believe how professional-looking it was.

Glory created a high-end website with all the features we wanted and then some.

Glory was always on top of everything. We totally trusted her instincts to guide us through the process and she made everything go so smoothly.

We have received many compliments on our new website within days after Glory launched it.

Several years ago, Glory told me I needed a new online look for my furniture design-building business. She was right and I finally took her advice.

In 2020, she built me a fresh, new website. Then, in early 2021, the subject of a blog came up and she said, "Let's do it!"

So, if my blog postings appear to have a slick, polished look to them, there's a reasonable explanation behind all of this: each blog post was hand-crafted by my marketing expert (and dear cousin), Glory. Yes, I wrote every word and provided 95% of the images, but she put it all together.

She is truly a marketing guru. And I would highly recommend her for any of your digital marketing needs.

I wanted to have an interactive website so I could make changes and updates on availability of products. 

We worked very well together. Glory was very receptive to my needs on the website, and no challenge was too big. 

Responsive. Glory never gave up on a problem. I wanted some pretty specific features and she came through. She was very responsive to all my needs and wants on the website.

I would recommend Glory to anyone because of innovative design. The website works wonderfully. Early sales have tripled. She helped me put my website in a position to grow my business. 

"ank you for a great job, done right. Well done."

No hesitation about working with Glory. The process was easy, fast, and efficient, and the site is much better.

During the website redesign, Glory was friendly and responsive, very punctual when meeting milestones, and her communication was excellent.

I would recommend her services to friends and colleagues.

About out initial decision: We compared the current company we had worked with for our website to:

  • iPlatformance/Glory Hougham,
  • her rates,
  • how she communicated, and
  • what she could offer.

We chose Glory because she was local, was more cost-effective than the competitor, and had more to offer.

We found Glory to be very open to ideas, easy to communicate with, easy to get in touch with, and quick to make edits.

We really like the analytics tool she incorporated. We can see where people are spending their time on our website. This has been great information to have.

I like the fresh, clean look she delivered for our new website: very modern but still classic.

Well, we have a new friend!

Glory is very invested in what she does, very honest, and truly talented in her field.

She has a pleasant personality and was always very prompt about responding to questions and concerns we had.

She’s knowledgeable in her field, reliable, and well worth the money

Our new website that she designed for us has been huge with new bridal inquiries.

We are excited! Thank you for helping build our business!

Timely. Cost-effective. Results-oriented.

Glory definitely created wonderful results for our office:

  • our patients are able to contact us directly through the website,
  • our patients are able to easily leave reviews, and
  • doctors are able to refer easily to us.

This makes it a much simpler process for referring doctors and patients alike.

Glory was always prompt with her responses to questions that came up throughout the process. She gave great insight into things we should incorporate to help build our business.

Glory was always accommodating to our schedule and easy to get a hold of. Glory normally responded within minutes to questions or concerns that Doctor and I had. She always made herself accessible and was waiting on us most of the time.

In addition, she had our website built in NO TIME at all! It was simply amazing how she checked off each box with ease!

I would absolutely recommend working with Glory for your business' needs. Glory was knowledgeable, precise, met our specific needs, and courteous throughout the entire process. We love our new website!

Glory Hougham … is very professional and truly cares about the end-product.

We couldn’t have done it without her.

If you need help with anything web-based, contact her. Thank you, Glory.

It looks great both from a layout and content point of view. I do love the website!

Nice job!
