We are a small non-profit organization with a limited budget for website design and management. We hired Tom Richards in 2012 to redesign our current website into an attractive, CRM website. Tom was more than willing to work within our budget. We were very pleased with the results and hired him again in 2016 to update the current site and create a second website. We had very specific requirements for the new site and Tom was able to deliver on all our requests.
We are pleased to trust our website needs to Tom, knowing that they will be met with professionalism, creativity and timeliness. We would highly recommend to Tom Richards to other organizations.

I’ve been in business for 14 years and originally had a website designer build my first site. Over the years the site began to perform less and less. I found Tom in 2015 and had him build me a new site along with optimization. Last year my season was completely booked by June and I received compliment after compliment from homeowners on the website.
I’m in the concrete industry and Tom really seemed to understand what I needed to communicate in my message to my clients. I’ve had several questions over the past year along with changes required. Tom responded quickly and explained things to me and made all necessary changes immediately. I highly recommend Tom. Businessmen like him are hard to come by.

I contacted Tom to have a website built for my contracting company and I have to say Tom was great. From the initial meeting to the final website Tom went out of his way to accommodate my needs. Tom explained everything to me in plain English, showed me how to make changes to my website and produced a spectacular final product. I would recommend Tom to anyone looking to have a website developed.

We had our website for 6 years. It was not a professional website and we weren’t happy with the results. We were trying to find a professional for couple years but were unsuccessful. Some web-designers didn’t understand our business, some didn’t respond in a timely manner, most of them were not local.
When we met Tom Richards, we immediately found he was the one we had been looking for. We were immediately sold. First of all, he responded quickly, he was local, and we were so confident to be able to meet the web-designer in person, whenever we feel the need. Tom Richards rejuvenated our outdated website and added lots of beneficial features. It couldn’t be better than that.
What we love about Tom, most of all, is that he is still as responsive as before the sale. It means a lot to us.
We highly recommend Tom Richards and we assure you will be so happy with his professional expertise.

The Alliance for a Clean Environment (ACE)
In 2012, we enlisted the creative, and technical talents of Tom Richards to redesign our sizeable website, which documented seventeen years of research and advocacy efforts. The resultant website allowed us to present a more user-friendly design, which currently includes the major focus of ACE investigations and reports, the unprecedented threats and harms to residents and the environment from the Limerick Nuclear Plant. The new website is more visually appealing, and effectively provides research summaries and new Video Blogs, produced in fifteen minute segments, introduced in 2013. All of the research prior to 2012 was placed into an ACE Archives link.
Since launching our redesigned website, we have received numerous positive comments about the appearance, content, and its usefulness. The new ACE website has been invaluable in informing and educating residents of the greater Philadelphia area, elected officials, and agency officials about critical environmental issues and threats.
We cannot thank Tom Richards enough for his outstanding expertise, patience, and insightful guidance throughout the entire process!

I’ve been working with Tom since 2008. In that time he redesigned my tree service website and then, 2 years ago, developed a new website for my firewood division. Both were great successes and completed in a very timely manner.
Moving forward, Tom set up and managed my Pay Per Click campaign at Google. Most recently, he developed an internet marketing program where I was able to target specific locations here in the Philadelphia market and show up prominently on Page 1 at Google, Bing and Yahoo! Business has never been better and continues to grow!
I recommend Tom to anyone with an existing website – he’ll make it better and get you on Page 1! Also to anyone just starting out and in need of a new website. He picks up the phone and responds promptly. I can concentrate on my business knowing that my website and marketing are in good hands.

I found Tom’s company through a Google search. He was at the top of the search engine rankings. I thought that if he could market his own business this effectively, I at least needed to meet with him to discuss what he had to offer.
After several meetings with me and my IT Department, all at my convenience and at my location in Philadelphia, I hired Tom to redesign my website and, after it completed, to aggressively market my payroll business through his Google AdWords program and Email Broadcasting.
The results have been substantial; over the past year we have put on a steady 2-3 new accounts per month thanks to Tom’s marketing. Also – he picks up his phone when I call and responds promptly to all my emails. This attention to a customer’s queries and requests, well after the sale has completed, is refreshing and unusual these days.

Payroll Service Solutions
We wanted to take time to thank Tom for the long and dedicated service he has provided our company and website. A few years ago I needed to look for someone new to manage my site. This was not an easy task. Although I was very happy with the way my site currently looked and how gifted the servicer was, he wasn’t as dependable as I needed. Our web site is in constant growth and change due to the nature of the business. It demands quick attention and an artistic component to detail which not many people out there can provide. A lot of work in Photoshop is necessary to get the pictures just right. I’m very very particular about the way each picture looks, how pages connect and just an overall “clean and appealing feel” to the site. Tom not only meets all the demanding requirements I put forth, he does it quickly, efficiently and at a very reasonable price. He’s always looking out for our interests in all aspects of this industry. He’s great at his craft, demonstrates a love for it and is simply a good honest person. I fully endorse Tom Richards to anyone looking for a webmaster!

Tom Richards is the BEST!! When I decided to launch our website for our small non-profit therapeutic riding center, I had no idea what it entailed — to be honest I barely even knew what a website was and had very few computer skills whatsoever. I figured a couple of pictures and some information would suffice. Tom took my small expectations and created a masterpiece. Everyone who has visited the site has commented on how detailed and user friendly it is!
When Tom agreed to work with us on this he had no idea what he was in for. Every time he created something, we changed our minds or added more, and more and more. Tom never lost patience with us and always said “no problem.” Not only was it service with a smile but it was fast — which is very important when you are a start-up company. We are grateful for all of the guidance and work that Tom put into our site — the product speaks for itself!!

All Riders Up
I have to say that I am sold on Tom Richards. For years, we built an “in-house” website that consisted of purchasing a template that we would just plug all of our info and pictures into and publish online. That worked early on but a couple of years ago, we began to realize that the internet was becoming more important than ever in making a first impression to potential clients. We set out to find a reasonable and creative web designer to give our site the much needed upgrade that was long overdue. After interviewing several different people, it was obvious that Tom Richards was the person that we wanted to handle the creation of our new website. He quickly put together an initial draft of our site and I was very pleased with the layout. I was very impressed with his numerous suggestions to my personal ideas that seemed to fit our overall vision. From that point on, he worked with us diligently everyday as we made numerous adjustments to our photos, wording, etc. and he was always quick to respond to our modification requests. After we fine-tuned everything, he was able to quickly finish up and publish our site and it ended up being well above our original expectations.
What is even more impressive is that about a year after it was completed, we had a problem with the site being off-line. As soon as we realized this, I contacted Tom and within 15 minutes, he had the problem resolved and everything back on track. It’s one thing to pay attention to your clients while you are selling them something, but it’s another thing to give them the same type of service well after the sale has completed. That shows how Tom Richards operates and I am glad we were lucky to find him when we did.
Needless to say, I would recommend Tom highly to anyone looking to improve their web presence and we look forward to our continued relationship with him.
It was a pleasure to work with Tom – he was VERY easy to work with. He completed a total site overhaul by installing a state of the art shopping cart solution integrated with a new, site-wide layout and design. All deadlines were met and he went above and beyond by including Google Checkout and Froogle Product Search. To promote the new site and take advantage of the marketing tools our new shopping cart provides, Tom now handles 100% of our internet marketing campaign with his Google AdWords Program, Local Search SEO and Email Broadcasting.
Great services. Really worth it. Thank you Tom! You are a true professional!
We wanted to let you know how pleased we are with the development of our website (www.green-ridge-landscaping.com). Our company, Green Ridge Landscaping, Inc, had had an internet presence for at least 5 years. We had decided that we needed to update our appearance and actively pursued 3 other website designers in the month prior to contacting you. After much disappointment and false promises, we determined that a local professional would be the only solution. We contacted you based on a referral and were happy to hear that you wanted to meet with us to discuss our needs. During our initial consultation you listened to our needs and desires, recommended solutions and informed us exactly what the costs would be and the time to completion. We were extremely happy when all your promises were kept, and the final results of our website were outstanding. We must also commend your follow-up services and the ease it was working with you on the changes and refinements that have been completed since the original site development. Again, thank you for a great job, we will definitely recommend you to anybody looking to develop a website and we look forward to our continued relationship in keeping our website up-to-date.
