About this pro
Simon did a great job optimizing my website for SEO marketing. I interviewed multiple SEO experts and I really felt that Simon was one of the few that got my business and my marketing needs. I also really appreciated that he was able to do the work for a fixed rate (as opposed to all the other vendors who wanted to sell me contracts with expensive monthly retainers). Simon was smart, professional, and genuinely a nice human being. He was responsive and timely in the work he executed for me. And most importantly the work he did had tangible results for my business my priority keywords are now on the first page for all Google search results! I would recommend Simon to any small business looking for a partner to help with their SEO marketing.Oct 23, 2014
The San Ramon Chamber of Commerce has had the pleasure of working with Simon Tan for several years as our webmaster. Simon does a fantastic job! He is very creative, thoughtful, and always gest the job done on time and on budget.Oct 6, 2014
WEBivia is fantastic! Simon created my initial website in a matter or weeks, giving it a much more professional look than what I had created a few years ago. He recently "upgraded" the site (it was actually a complete redesign) and did a great job on this version too. Simon is very responsive and does quality work. Any time that I need a change made or have questions about how to update the content myself, he is there to help. He cares about his clients and this is demonstrated in his patience, advice, and guidance. He is awesome!Oct 6, 2014
Working with Simon has been easy and fun! My partner and I are not tech savvy and he has been very patient and walked us through each step, even multiple times if needed! Our new website was clean and simple and attractive, and was up and running very quickly. Shortly after our new website was up, we had the unfortunate occurrence of having to change our business name and thus our domain name. Simon was so gracious and helpful in finding a new domain name for our small business and in transferring everything over to the new domain while we pulled out our hair overhauling our business to the new business name. Simon continues to support us with maintaining and adding to our website, as well as social media and email marketing problem solving through monthly calls and screen sharing--as a very busy small business owner, his services are a valuable asset!Oct 7, 2014
Simon is an absolute expert at website design and SEO. He is down to earth, so easy to talk to and work with. He listens to his customer's every need and does his best to address anything the customer asks for. It is clear that he does more than just build a minimum website--he examines the company's marketing needs and customer profile, and makes recommendations based on the latest SEO algorithms and best practices in online marketing. He basically is giving away free marketing consultation as a part of his design process. He works well with the graphic designers, photographers, and copy writers that are also on the project. He is responsive and communicates clearly. He is able to explain the technical side of things with clarity and patience. He explained a ton of things to me very clearly and I have learned a lot about websites and how they should work for a small business. He is hard working and always delivers more than he promises. I also know some of the other business owners that have hired him and everyone has nothing but praise to say about him and his work.Oct 6, 2014
