Ernest is my 'go-to' code guy! While I build simple websites via html and WordPress there have been times I have needed help. Ernie always comes through quickly and efficiently handling complex code projects for me. I highly recommend him!May 27, 2014
Being a small business owner going on to the internet can be a crazy time for your business. It's scary sometimes to think of all the things that need to be done to accomplish it. Mr. Black explained to me step by step how to bring my business to the internet. He built my website in no time. We spent time tweaking and tailoring it to fit my business. Explained that certain spots were great revenue spots to place ads for my own products, went through keywords and phrases to generate traffic and guided me through signing up for Social Media. After my experience with Mr. Black and Standing Stone Designs I feel more at ease that I have the knowledge to not only run my business website online, but I understand better how it works. It's like my online business card running online 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. I was so please to find and work with him.May 26, 2014
