    So happy I work with these guys! My new store is so much better than zencart and the transfer was easy. Shopify is quick to use - great recommendation.

    Makes it easy to share my site.
    I send people to Mark all the time. Coldsmoke’s work speaks for itself. My site design is jaw dropping and people ask me for referrals. It’s easy to send them to Mark because I’m proud of what he did for me.

    I needed to update my Shopify store because my theme wasn’t supported any longer. I just remembered how hard it was to set it up the first time and I wasn’t going to do that on my own again. I contacted Coldsmoke on Thumbtack and he was able to get me fixed up in now time. I’m really happy with everything.

    Just what I needed but didn't know it existed.
    I have a fairly large wordpress site where I talk about, review and sell gun accessories. But the selling part of it wasn’t going so well. I was using a stack of different plugins that constantly needed updating and tweaking. I like guns and blogging. I don’t like building online stores. I found Coldsmoke and he was able to setup a light version of Shopify that I embed into pages on my site. It works great and is really easy to manage – that’s just what I wanted. Thanks guys!

    Personalized Service
    Needing to upload over 300 tuner parts to a store didn’t seem very fun. I didn’t know what store would work. Mark recommended shopify – I hadn’t heard of it so I was nervous. But it seemed good so I had him start the build. The more I researched the more I realized that he recommended the right thing for me.

    Work with them!
    Coldsmoke is awesome. You should work with them. I’ve been a customer since really early on and I still get personal attention.

    Outstanding Experience
    Coldsmoke is great to work with. Mark takes his time to really understand what I want and how to make it work for the sinternet. He did a great job designing my Wordpress site. He even tooks some time to show me how to do some things on my own… but I always come back to him to do the big stuff. It’s great working with someone who is patient and has attention to details.

    Web design customer
    Mark and his group did a great job creating a site that looks great no matter the screen. He was very professional, quick and made sure he understood what I wanted before he started. He was also flexible when I asked him to make some changes based on things we were seeing in the market. It wasn’t in the original design but he made the changes. You have a loyal customer.

    Sales are back!
    What’s the one thing you want when you sell stuff online? More sales! One day my sales completely dried up and I couldn’t figure out what happened. I contacted Coldsmoke to see if he would be willing to help me troubleshoot it. It wasn’t a new build or a redesign but it looked like he really knew Shopify. And boy did he! Within a few hours my sales started to come back. I don’t know what kind of black magic he uses but it works! LOL. Very happy.

    Idea to site
    Mark was great to work with. He was able to take the design that had been floating around in my head and make it a reality. I'm excited to send people to my site now!

    bye, bye Woo
    I got sick of maintaining my WooCommerce store on my own. So I found Mark and he helped me transition everything over to Shopify. It was the easiest move and seems really easy to maintain compared to Woo. So, so, so happy! Thanks Mark.

    Quick and professional
    We setup a meeting from my Thumbtack request. Coldsmoke Creative was quick to reply and even quicker to setup a meeting. I met with Mark and he was organized and really helped me understand what would go into my Shopify build. I needed a smaller site to sell some of my handmade wooden vases and bowls and he helped me understand what would work best for my needs. That’s some good customer service. I can’t wait to see the finished product – the mockups were amazing.

    Better site = more sales
    Coldsmoke did a fantastic job helping me rebuild my outdated Shopify template to a state-of-the-art site. I now attract all kinds of attention which has lead to increased sales (which was the goal). I was grateful that they showed me how to make minor changes to my site that I can do on my own.

    Efficient, Smooth and Intuitive
    Coldsmoke Creative was the driving force behind my fresh, new blog. Their innovative team created a professional design to showcase my personal brand with a custom theme that is extremely responsive to both mobile and tablet browsing. Their friendly, supportive staff taught me how to make updates and changes to the site so that I would feel comfortable taking full ownership. This is quite possibly the best investment I've made to establish myself as an industry expert.

    Great Service, Great Support & Most Importantly, a Great Website!
    Coldsmoke Creative was really great to work with. We needed serious help with our website which had become dated and not user friendly. They worked with us on a new design and gave us plenty of other ideas we had not even considered ourselves. We have since gotten numerous unsolicited compliments and we couldn't be happier with the finished project. Even after the initial project was done, Coldsmoke Creative has helped integrate some new features which allows us to display our yacht the best way possible!
