“I got lucky……

Ten years ago I was looking for handmade soaps to use in my lodge B&B when I discovered a website that caught my eye. I started purchasing soaps there and at some point complimented the owner on her website created by “Simply Primitive” (shown on the bottom of the homepage). The soap lady apparently thought I was familiar with the designer and said something like, “Yes, isn’t Julie just wonderful?”

After working with a number of web designers, I was still in need of help. I very much liked this designer’s portfolio and with the comment by the soap lady I decided to make contact. Since then I have had multiple versions of several websites, and currently have three primary sites developed by this creative, helpful, reliable, steady and of course kind, design professional, Julie Tomlin. My Julie-designed sites have drawn compliments from friends and associates but most importantly have been successful in attracting guests to the businesses. Julie is easy to work with and the only designer I have needed and care to use.”

“Homeward Bound Golden Retriever Rescue and Sanctuary is a nonprofit, all-volunteer organization committed to the rescue and permanent placement of dogs into loving homes. We were looking for a web site solution that would be easy for visitors to navigate, showcase our dogs and stories, and streamline our updating and maintenance process.

We wanted third-party support to help with the initial development and be available for ongoing questions and technical assistance. Julie Tomlin is one of those rare individuals with both design and development expertise. In six short weeks, the site was fully executed with enhancements that also made our back-office operations more efficient by integrating with other applications.

The site is now easily updated with fresh content that connects us to our supporters, potential adopters and volunteers. The cross-platform integration of web site, blog and social media has significantly increased our visibility and has greatly assisted in outreach, fundraising, and most importantly – our mission. The entire process was a joy. Julie is a true find!”
