PROCESS AND HOW WE WERE SUCCESSFUL
owners contacted us and said they were having problems with
their existing site. There were numerous problems. Sometimes
the site was down, sometimes it displayed as an adult site.

People rarely used the web site to find information or to
the course of several weeks we worked with the owners (whenever
they had a few minutes free time) to determine what they really
wanted out of the new site, what had been done (and not done)

It was a rewarding experience for us. We are very pleased
that we were able to "Rescue" the site for the owners
