Jeanie shared that her, “experience with HostingCT was amazing. The website switchover and redo was not a small job, nor was it uncomplicated. Cristi was amazingly organized and infinitely patient. They were easy to work with and responsive. I knew what I was getting and the timing, once we got started, was spot on.”
The Hosting Connecticut team met with Wild to discuss her products and how Hosting Connecticut could help grow her business. Wild expressed her need for the website to be more user-friendly and her social media presence to be more of a community while still being a sales tool. In reviewing Blessed Creek’s existing website, the HCT team was impressed with the aesthetics, but identified several areas that needed improvement. HCT got to work and created a plan to make the website easier for visitors to navigate and purchase products.
