My wife and I interviewed ten web designers comparing competency, knowledge, branding experience, innovation, beauty, transparency, effective SEO, clear communication, pricing, availability and a track record. Our research data supported hiring Rachel above the rest. We did our part with content writing, gathering images and creating our logo and she did the rest on time (from start to finish starting from scratch in two months) and for the price she advertises. We think we have the best site on the internet for our industry and our unique personality. We are proud of the way it looks and feels and the first day after launching, we got our first client. We learned a lot maneuvering through the maze of web development and design and Rachel walked us through each step. She works regular business hours Monday through Friday answering emails and calls and responded to changes either in the moment or within 24-hours. We never once waited on her. We signed up for her VIP program, supplying us with updates, minor changes and posting a blog once a month which she offers at a discount rate for pre-existing clients. We imagine having Rachel on our team for years to come. So, check out our website, https://blossomandbe.com/ and then when you are ready to create a site as beautiful and effective as ours, give her a buzz.
I am thrilled with my new website by virtual design! Working with Rachel and her project manager was a great experience. Rachel took the time to understand the look and design qualities I was looking for and achieved them beautifully. I went from a very stale dated site to one that has a soft and beautiful color theme, is clear and very easy to navigate. Rachel outlined from the beginning exactly what services she would provide and also what was needed from me to complete this task in a timely manner. Her project manager outlined step-by-step what was needed along the way. They are a very organized team and their clarity and overall thorough approach helped ease what sometimes felt like a big project to tackle. I would highly recommended Virtual Design for anyone looking to update or build a new website. Rachel is highly talented and a pleasure to work with professionally!
Rachel and her team were great to work with, asking lots of questions to understand what I was looking for when I didn’t quite know how to articulate it. Rachel came back with an amazing site and helped me understand the WordPress dashboard so that I could have control of the backend afterwards. She set up my SEO and I am already seeing an increase in traffic. Highly recommended. Thanks Rachel!
After 5 years of having an underperforming homemade website, I finally bit the bullet and hired a professional. I AM SO GLAD I DID, and I wish I had done it years ago. Rachel is extremely professional, thoughtful and knowledgeable. Not only is the design consistent with my practice, but the SEO is already bringing in more traffic than I ever had on my previous site. When the site was finished, Rachel walked me through how to use it and what’s necessary to maintain it so that I won’t be lost now that she’s done. I will definitely use Rachel for future projects!
I am based in Australia and was referred to Rachel by a friend as the most efficient, knowledgeable & quality-driven web-designer out there. Working with Rachel has been amazing, despite my living on the other side of the world! Rachel has not only created a smashing website for me, but I have learnt so much along the way. Rachel was easy to communicate with virtually, and perfectly blended her expertise with my own unique goals and visions for my website. She really knows her stuff regarding SEO & web-design, and after spending huge amounts of time trying to do it myself on other platforms, it’s a relief to now know that I have the best possible website that aligns with my business. Thanks Rachel!
I never knew that it would make such a difference to have a website that I love versus a website that is just there because as a business you should have a website. It actually motivates me to want to post to it regularly and share it so that people will actually see it. Working with Rachel and her team was so easy. The process of me having to figure everything out was completely eliminated. Rachel takes the time to explain things and makes sure that you understand what you’ve got. She also gives excellent resources along with the amazing website. You can tell she genuinely wants to see you succeed and does her best to support that. I’m so glad I took that leap and decided to work with Rachel. I look at my website all the time and it makes me feel happy.”
I am so fortunate to have found Rachel. Her deep understanding of my profession is impressive, as is her way of skillfully anticipating and responding to the unique needs of my practice. She is dedicated to her clients and wants them to succeed. I appreciate her patient manner of taking me through the design stages from beginning to end. Her constant enthusiasm and gentle encouragement were tremendously helpful to someone like me who gets quickly intimidated by technical things. She made the process easy. Thanks to Rachel, I now have a powerful and effective tool for my practice. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a professional website to represent their business.
Working with Rachel and her team has truly been a real pleasure. For many business owners, things like SEO, web design, and the background work that goes into it all can feel like an overwhelming task to complete. I appreciate how Rachel keeps it as simple as possible for her clients to understand the process, and provides excellent clarity with every step. She is very well organized, detail oriented, and has great integrity with her services. I highly recommend Rachel’s services for any service-based business that needs a web presence.
I completely love our website! Rachel was patient with my lack of understanding the steps and process, and really went above and beyond her normal work effort to create the vision I had of our website. She is really committed to customer satisfaction and delivering an excellent finished product. Many, many thanks!
Working with Rachel has been a great experience. I had a vision for what I wanted my site to be, and with Rachel’s help, it turned out to be exactly what I wanted, truly, even better. She’s had great feedback and input on the layout and content, and is great at explaining all the details in lay terms that make it all remarkably clear. She helped me understand the ways blogs can help SEO, even the ways to write them. I was really daunted by the scope of what I wanted, but she broke it down into manageable steps, which helped me get clear with the content.
Now I have a powerful platform for growing my practice. I’ve already received a lot of compliments on the site. Best of all, as my business grows, I know I have Rachel to help me grow the website, too.
Rachel was referred to us by two friends who had hired her for their respective businesses. Our immediate impression of Rachel was that she was very honest in her work ethic. As a small new business, we knew that our project was not complex and that we needed to stay within a budget. Prior to contacting Rachel, we had been getting quotes that just felt like we were being oversold. Thankfully, Rachel seemed to really understand our needs and was able to validate our initial thoughts about the amount of work that our project entailed. She offered us exactly what we needed and at a rate that was much more reasonable to us. Throughout the process, Rachel was very patient (we often took long in sending things to her) and always clarifying or answering questions, no matter how basic. As individuals who know nothing about web design or SEO, we felt very comfortable asking her anything and knowing that she would break it down to us in an easy and understandable manner. We are thrilled with the outcome of our website, which was exactly what we had envisioned. Rachel was such a pleasure to work with and we would highly recommend her to anyone looking for web design services.
Rachel is an amazing person to work with. She has taken me through several phases of my business and there is not one thing that she has not been able to help me with. She is knowledgeable and she goes the extra mile to find the solution that is appropriate for me. She is one of the best virtual assistants/web design people that I have ever come across. Rachel has a unique way of taking complicated tasks and breaking it down in a way that is understandable. She has helped me grow in many ways as an entrepreneur and has empowered me to learn more about how to implement items that allow me to grow even more-so at my own pace. I have found that in working in the online space this is a very unique trait and I appreciate that so much. Rachel really cares about her clients and is a pleasure to work with. Basically ‘She rocks’!
I’ve never had any experience designing a website before and Rachel made the process very easy for me. She helped make sure I chose the right theme for me and all along listened to all my input and really put my vision into reality. After the initial design draft, there was a lot of back-and-forth and she was very helpful tweaking everything to just the way I wanted. I am confident that my business “storefront” is what I want it to be! I would highly recommend Rachel for anyone seeking out a designer who is good at what she does, responsive and really invested in getting your vision out into a final product. And she’s really easy to work with too!
Rachel has provided me with the most powerful business tool to make my acupuncture practice thrive, my beautiful and professional website! I have been in practice for over twenty years and have tried to create my own websites from time to time, never with much success. After moving to a new location I found myself needing to start over and build my practice again from scratch, and my business coach referred me to Rachel because he said she would know how to walk me through each and every step I would need. He was right.
With Rachel’s expertise and care I now have an elegant and powerfully effective website that is drawing in many new patients because of the seamless SEO compatibility. Rachel has spent time listening to me, letting me choose the theme and colors while always willing to offer her expert advise. She is highly skilled and has patiently walked me through the entire process so that I can now post my own blogs and upload my own videos as I need. With Rachel’s business savvy, organization, and expertise, it is clear that she was dedicated to my vision and message that I wanted to create from the moment we met. I cannot thank her enough for launching my practice in no time at all!
At first, I was apprehensive in choosing an outside web designer for my new website as I was planning to design my website myself and was worried about cost. Looking back, I could have never come close to creating the site Rachel built. Her services were a great investment for my business.
Not only did Rachel make my vision for the site a reality, but she was patient, responsive and professional throughout the entire process. She listened to my needs for the site and ensured I was satisfied with the end product. Additionally, I know Rachel is accessible if I have any questions in the future.
It was a true pleasure working with Rachel and her team, and I highly recommend her services for anyone looking to build a personalized and professional website
Rachel is a really talented web designer and is fabulous to work with. She designed my very first website and I’m thrilled with it.
I had no previous experience with web design (or starting a business!) so I was understandably a little nervous at the start of the process. I had a myriad of questions, but Rachel was always patient and helpful – explaining anything I was unsure about. Thanks to Rachel I now feel much more confident in my ability to maintain my website and use it in the most effective way possible.
I feel that having a professional quality website will help me build my Amma Therapy practice quickly. I feel so grateful that I found Rachel. I have a feeling that the insights I’ve gathered from working with her will save me a lot of headaches in the future.
Working with Rachel was great! I spent years trying to create a website on my own and in no time at all Rachel created a beautiful, functional site. I have gotten more calls since it launched and way more of my calls convert to clients just based on what they see on the site. I would highly recommend her to anyone.
Words will not do justice to just how much I enjoyed working with Rachel on my new website. Her process was professional, thorough, and at completion, I feel like I got an incredible value for what I paid. The site and its functionality came out so much better than I had dreamed. This woman knows what she is doing! I was so appreciative of the follow-up call after the site was done to explain fully what my site was capable of and how to keep it going strong. I highly recommend Rachel Muraca for all your website needs.
Rachel helped me redo my website and she was truly amazing.
I can imagine that I wasn’t the easiest client to work with in that I didn’t really know what I wanted going into it… That is until I’d see something I didn’t like and knew how I wanted it done differently…. Rachel graciously made all the changes I requested, even the little “no one will notice but me” details. And I can honestly say that I’m 100% happy with how my website turned out. There were a couple of times when I was overwhelmed and didn’t know what to do and Rachel confidently made recommendations, which I appreciated so much.
She also has a clear understanding of both Internet marketing and web design, which I think is rare to find in a web designer. She taught me a lot in our exit interview on how to move forward with blogging, how to improve my SEO, and other ideas to grow my business.
She’s now my go to for anything web related that’s over my head and when the time comes for me to redo my website (which hopefully won’t be for a while), she’s the first person I’ll call. So, if you’re considering her for your website, I highly recommend her. She’s great!
I absolutely LOVE the website and am so excited for what comes next! It has been a process for me and I have to say that the on piece of advice I offer other small businesses, especially those in my field, is to not skimp on the website. I had been watching Kevin and Rachel’s work for about two years and used a web person that was in my BNI group that offered me a lower rate for building my website. That was the BIGGEST mistake I have made in my business thus far. Not only did I spend double, but my website has not been fully functioning or working for me in the last 1 year+ (which costs even more money in lost business.) There is a huge difference between someone who can program and build a website versus someone that knows how to design an astethically pleasing, highly functioning website with top notch SEO. I am grateful for where I am today, but wow, was that a big lesson learned!
Working with Rachel was great! I had tried to build my own website from one of those do it yourself companies but, I was never satisfied with my results, it never looked quite right and google didn’t pay much attention to it. Rachel built me a website that easily converts viewers into paying customers and google loves the website! As soon as it went live I instantly climbed in the google rankings and my phone began to ring more and more. My only regret is that I didn’t call her sooner.
I LOVED working with Rachel. From our first meeting, I told her everything I was looking for; my style, the layout, and what was important to me. I was pleasantly surprised when I got the first draft of my website, it was EXACTLY what I was looking for! A lot changed for me, regarding the website, during the time we were working together. Rachel was so helpful at implementing those changes and with her expertise in this field, she was able to guide me when I got stuck regarding important decisions. I highly recommend Rachel and her services.
Working with Rachel was a pleasure. She really understood what I was looking for in my website, and I was so impressed even when I saw the first draft of the website she created for me. She understood the color themes and the layout I wanted perfectly. She really took the time to make all the changes I wanted and didn’t publish the site until I was happy with it. Even on our training call she really took the time to explain everything. Rachel really cares about her clients success through their website. Thank you so much Rachel for my beautiful website!
What a wonderful experience working with Rachel on designing my website! I was very impressed with her passion and knowledge of website design and marketing. Every step of the way was very organized and detailed so I knew what I needed to do. She offers incredible resources to help you with your website, SEO and marketing and explains things very clearly in writing and verbally. I feel she did an excellent job in creating a visually pleasing and functional website for my practice—and at a reasonable price!
Rachel is a trusted partner who is a valuable member of my business team. Not only does Rachel have excellent expertise in website development and design, but she also brings a wealth of insight about my consumers experience with my Brand and online presence. What I appreciate most about partnering with Rachel is her honest and straightforward approach, coupled with her dedication to what is right for me and my business. Rachel’s “agenda” is my “agenda” and I always trust that her suggestions are in my best interests. In addition, I appreciated that Rachel put in whatever extra effort I needed to get the outcome I wanted. I am thrilled with my website and I could not have done it without Rachel’s partnership, guidance and support! I wholeheartedly recommend Rachel for small business website development.
I was referred to Rachel by my acupuncture marketing coach. After looking at her work I was very impressed and decided to hire her to redo my entire website. Throughout the entire process I was impressed. The website was done quickly and efficiently and the communication was always open and clear. On my initial call with Rachel I had an idea of what I wanted my website to look like but I couldn’t visualize the actual design. On this phone call Rachel said, “I think I know what design you would like.” Then shortly after she showed me a mock homepage; I was blown away to see that Rachel had designed a webpage that fit me exactly. It was as if she was able to get inside my head and design from my mind!
Throughout the web project Rachel exceeded my expectations in a number of ways; one way was her design technique – she always added a special touch and detail that made all of the difference. Rachel always got back to me quickly and answered my questions. I am so grateful to have a website that I love. The marketing materials were also very helpful; I like the unique concept of a web design team providing education to help me in my business and to help me understand the whole marketing process.
If you are looking for an incredible website design then look no further, Rachel is great! At first I was apprehensive about the total cost, now I realize it was worth every penny. I have a website that I love and all of the marketing information and training really helped me to bring my practice to another level. I highlyrecommend Rachel, she truly has a gift. Rachel has a unique blend of technical ability, artistic creation, and intuition which is a rare find in a web designer.”
Rachel and her virtual assistant have been the most wonderful web developers we have worked with. In the past I have hired two other companies to work on our website. One used a poorly designed WordPress theme with almost exactly the same content for all their clients, only because ‘it worked well for their clients.’ I also wasn’t aware of their 6 month SEO package that came with the website design when I signed up the package. Their website design was so bad I wanted to cancel the deal but then they argued I had already signed up the contract so I ended up paying 6 months SEO package with a website that didn’t even work the whole time. Such a waste of money. The second Website company was a local one, found it on Yelp. It made an average website but for some reason the content and images went missing for a few months and were never recovered. The links remained broken for a few months which really affected our Google ranking. After taking Kevin’s training I decided to sign up for Rachel’s website design. Rachel provided detailed instructions to help us get started. Her virtual assistant was very helpful in answering all our questions. I felt the communication was clear throughout the whole process and they have always tried their best to accommodate all our requests. I am very delighted to have worked with them and very happy with the final outcome. I would highly recommend their services to all alternative medicine practitioners.
