About Eric Gillette

hired 2 times on Thumbtack

I am a website business consultant, and I'm the best in the business. I help ordinary business owners establish an online presence, or improve the one they already have substantially.

My clients range from large companies like Go-Part.com with revenues around $3M per year to medium-sized companies like ArizonaTools.com and AquaSealUSA.com with revenues of around $700K per year to small "mom and pop" businesses like BarbaraPaynePhoto.com with revenue of around $10K per year.

My clients like my direct, hands-on approach, and the fact that my work is honest and straightforward. Typically, the work I do derives a "why didn't we think of that before?" response from my clients when I offer actionable strategies and help with implementation.

If you look me up on LinkedIn, you'll see recommendations from real clients I've worked with. Feel free to search me on Google as well as I dominate the search results for "Website Business Consultant" and other terms since I'm also an SEO expert.

I've been in the business since 2001, and have helped all types of businesses, both large and small. My expertise and my income is directly correlated to your business and your revenue. This means I have a naturally vested interest in seeing your business improve and succeed.

But for me, this goes beyond just the professional aspect; more so, it is a personal mission for me to help other business owners focus on the things that will help them improve their businesses, and ultimately our country's GDP and economy.

In my eyes, it is the small baby steps by business owners like you and I that will make the wide improvements this country needs to see in order to help balance out our economical flagrancy.

I love what I do; in fact, I'd do it for free if I had no expenses involved in living my life. I believe I've found my calling, and it will reflect in the work I do with you and your business.

    Love working with Eric, always ready to help and never gives you an attitude! ( which is rare today)... and oh, he knows his stuff too!

  • 5/5 stars May 20, 2014

    Where do I begin? From the start Eric was extremely easy to talk to and professional. This guys knows what he is doing and I trust him 100% I reached out to Eric about 1-2months ago after finding him on Instagram. I needed a website for my online coaching business that I previously ran through email which was very difficult as the number of clients increased. Eric has taught me so much and eliminated the fear and anxiety that I use to have. Everything that can possibly be improved has improved about my business. Everything on my website has been automated so that my job is easier and I am more productive doing much less work. At age 27 I am now able to enjoy more free time while earning more money. Eric and his work have exceeded my expectations and I am highly impressed by his ability implement his own ideas/knowledge while keeping my vision. I am so proud to have had Eric Gillette be the creater of my website. I would never work with anyone else. Not only does this man do an amazing job but he is very personable and I now consider him a friend. Eric has increased the overall quality of my life thanks to his work and passion for helping people.

    Eric is very easy to get a hold of and truly cares about genuine customer support. He is always fair, and it has been a pleasure working with him and I would recommend his services to anyone.

  • 5/5 stars February 14, 2014

    Eric knows how to think like a developer, like a sys admin, and like a client. When you work with Eric, you get the entire package--outstanding communication skills and unparalleled technical knowledge.

    We've been working together for a while now on a myriad of projects, and I've come to realize that if you have a problem, he'll have the solution. You can tell that Eric feels right at home at the keyboard.

  • 5/5 stars February 12, 2014

    Eric is a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend for all IT needs. I've been using him for 2 years so I feel I'm qualified to give an endorsement.

  • 5/5 stars February 12, 2014

    Eric, above all - is there when you need him. In a complex world where technology is ever changing - having an advocate who can help you navigate is a must. Eric is that navigator.

  • 4/5 stars February 12, 2014

    Every assignment does it seriously although it takes it time since he takes everything into account, he always gets the job done !

  • 5/5 stars July 20, 2013

    Responsive, fast and straight to the point. Will hire again next time! :)

  • 5/5 stars May 29, 2013

    Eric has been managing my dedicated server for several months now. I can't thank him enough for making my life easier. If you are looking for someone who is technical, understands the net, keeps up with all the technical requirements to manage servers and exudes customer support, Eric is your man!

  • 5/5 stars January 29, 2013

    I've been working with Eric for the last five months or so. Eric works for me as a remote System Administrator. Basically, he helps with everything related to our dedicated and virtual servers (security, tweaks, fixing things when they break, adding new functionality, migrating stuff, suggesting better practices, etc).

    I would recommend Eric for two main reasons:

    1. He is a wealth of knowledge. There hasn't been anything I've asked him about related to software/hardware/best practices/anything tech that he hasn't had an immediate, detailed answer to. He's really a walking knowledge base.

    2. He's pretty much *always* available. I've messaged him day/night/weekend/holiday and he's always replied.


  • 5/5 stars January 29, 2013

    Eric has been a great asset to helping me and clients alike focus ON our businesses, instead of IN the business.

    Eric achieves this through insuring our website properties are secured and online, all-the-time. Which is a critical component to our business operations and viability.

    Knowing there is someone to assist with managing our business infrastructure and also help make sure things remain operational as we grow, gives me confidence and peace of mind to expand without worrying if things may break.

  • 5/5 stars November 30, 2012

    Great, outstanding, fun, very knowledgable will definitely hire him again. This guy knows everything about how to setup a business on the web. Looking forward to the next project. Merry Christmass and a Happy new Year :)

  • 5/5 stars November 30, 2012

    Eric has been managing my server for about a year now. He has done a fantastic job of keeping the servers updated and on top of any potential hack threats. I don't know what I would have done without his knowledge and expertise.

  • 5/5 stars June 30, 2012

    I have been working with Eric for over a year, and if I could give him 10 stars everyday, I would! I'm a web developer supporting more that 50 sites. Many of my clients use PHP open source programs, and before I met Eric, we were constantly getting hacked and our server was down on a regular basis. Now after making the switch to HiVelocity and working with Eric, I can sleep at night knowing my client's websites are safe and secure.

    Eric has helped me on so many occasions with security issues, website migrations, email problems, DNS problems, blacklist problems, you name it, he's done it. He is truly an expert in his field!! I enjoy working with him, and I am so glad I met him.

    Eric thank you so much for helping me!! You have truly been a lifesaver for me and my clients.

    I have known Eric for almost 2 years and over that time he's been extremely helpful to me and my business. I am very dependent on the servers I use and he's always gone the extra mile to make sure that I'm happy with the service he provides. There have been many times where I've been scratching my head as to what's happened from a technical point of view, but Eric always comes up with the answers! Highly recommended.

  • 5/5 stars February 11, 2012

    Eric's knowledge and expertise has been exceptionally helpful for me and my business. As an owner of a popular website, I only have a limited amount of time and resources to cover everything. Eric has filled in the gaps with his solutions and made my life easier. He's genuinely a good person and seems to thrive on helping people solve problems. I already recommend him to my clients and users, and will continue to do so into the foreseeable future.

  • 5/5 stars January 11, 2012

    The challenges of running a media company can be quite overwhelming at times. So many different technologies to interact with, so many things to consider. I started my new company a year ago, and have had numerous obstacles to overcome. Finding Eric 6 months ago I can honestly say has been the single greatest opportunity I've been given. His ability to see the big picture, to provide sound advice, and to look into any issues I may have on a number of fronts is quite impressive, but it's his unfailing loyalty and support that really makes him special as a business colleague and friend. He's spent an unbelievable amount of time helping me streamline my business, increase productivity, manage my servers, and provide recommendations and links to research that had truly made a huge difference in the way I do business and inevitably in the way I live my life.

    I am truly grateful and can only say the most positive things about Eric. I only hope I can begin to reciprocate and contribute as much to his business as he has to mine.

  • 5/5 stars October 10, 2011

    I am SO glad I found Eric to help manage the servers for CountryMusicIsLove.com! My website is constantly growing and we would not be able to keep up with our traffic if it weren't for Eric. He has also helped me find ways to make my job more efficient and taught me how to use tools that I never knew existed. I would definitely recommend his services to everyone!

  • 5/5 stars August 12, 2011

    Eric is very easy to work and communicate with. He has an unprecedented understanding of websites, IT, server management, SEO, etc. Every website or business owner needs a technology ace to help them when something goes wrong or to get them hire in search engines. Eric does all the above and speaks to you on level where you can comprehend the changes he is implementing without having ten years of IT experience. Eric is very good at laying out several options to help your business achieve it's goals.

  • 5/5 stars August 9, 2011

    Everything that Eric tell you is the truth, I haven't been able to finish my webpage yet but I stay in constant contact with Eric. He goes over and above the call of duty. He is a guy with good character and understanding for what his clients need.

Question and answer

Q. What advice do you have for a customer looking to hire a provider like you?

A. Have a goal in mind.

It's really difficult for me to help you if you don't have an end goal in mind.

Be Flexible.

Some of my methods are a bit unorthodox, and may surprise you at first, but they get results; so try not to be "married" to any one strategy or idea when we start working together.

Q. If you were a customer, what do you wish you knew about your trade? Any inside secrets to share?

A. The only thing I would have wish I knew when I first got started is to focus on a specific thing, and to become the best at that.

Trying to be a jack of all trades is generally a bad idea, and just weakens your focus on what you could become the best at.

I also tried to my hand at a lot of different things, assuming that "a little from a lot of different sources" would be the best way to generate income. Boy was I wrong!

Now I have decided to focus and become the best Website Business Consultant on Earth! =0)

Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?

A. 1) Can they help you accomplish your end goals?

The answer to this question is usually onerous or as ambiguous as the question itself. But only an honest consultant will tell you the truth if what you're trying to accomplish is too far-fetched, or not interesting enough for them to want to help you.

2) Can they work with your budget?

I have had a few situations where the clients' end goals were more grandiose than the budget they had allotted to accomplish those goals. So now I'm in the habit of informing a client of there is an obvious imbalance between what they would like to accomplish and what it will cost us to get there together.

Q. What important information should buyers have thought through before seeking you out?

A. 1) Do you really need my services?

I've come across a lot of clients who shouldn't be in the business they're in, and they're "grasping at straws" trying to keep it afloat, when in reality, they should just let it go, because they're chasing business, rather than allowing the business to come to them.

2) Do you feel like something is missing?

If you are having a hard time, and just feel like "something is missing" or there is "something you're not seeing", then you are the exact kind of client I'm looking for, because odds are you're feeling is right on target. Having someone who can see you and your business without the same "vision" as you, often reveals things that have been overlooked, or under-utilized, simply because no one person can know everything. I'm like an extra set of eyes an ears to help notice things you might have missed or overlooked, simply because you're the business owner. Heck, I even have a consultant I work with for my own business as a consultant, because I know she'll notice things I might miss in the same fashion in my own business. No one person can know or see all. =0)
