What Our Clients Are Saying About Us

Village of East Alton

Working with Riverbender to update our website was super easy! I was certain this would be a very difficult update, but Ashley really helped us out by going above and beyond in design and content. All I had to do was gather the necessary information and updates on our end and send them to Ashley, where she took care of the rest. The upgrade was easy and painless. We have all been very pleased with the new website and happy with how easy and helpful Riverbender was for all our website needs.

The website looks great. The Riverbender.com team has done an amazing job and I have enjoyed working with all of you during this transition. Thank you again for your professional and detailed work on our website. Truly appreciated.

Sam’s Pawn Shop

We love our new site! For a local business, we wanted to use a local company to build our new site. Riverbender designed our new logo, and quickly put together a quality site that we love! It caters to our business history in town and gave us a much-needed online presence! With their help, we are receiving numerous compliments on how professional it looks! We feel it caters to everything we wanted to do along with what we currently do. The search optimization has helped us bring in customers, and it really has been well worth the investment!

Wendy Wickenhauser has been my rep from Riverbender.com for the past few years. She has taken our completely outdated website and turned it into something that has been a great tool for our customers. The enhancements have greatly increased the traffic on our site and overall business. When choosing a remodeler, customers are often bombarded by fly by night companies that do not have a website at all; our website helps us differentiate ourselves as a reputable and trustworthy company. She does a fantastic job and helps us constantly update and tweak things on the site. I couldn’t be happier with the work the Riverbender has done.

Outrageous Outdoors

We at Outrageous Outdoors recently had a special function that we worked with RiverBender to help us promote.  We were very pleased with the excellent customer service we were given.  Everything, from meeting with our sales person, to seeing our ad on the site, to the video article they did for us was done with excellence.  They worked with us to meet our budget for the event and gave us options for additional advertising when our event was complete.  We are currently advertising with them and will continue to utilize the many options of advertising they bring to the table.

Widman Construction

RiverBender.com continues to be proactive in making sure that our website is up to today’s standards.  Through its courteous sales staff and efficient web designers, I was able to get a complete website redesign with very little headache.  I found this redesign to be cost effective and the final product very creative and sufficient for our needs.

Kudos to the entire team at RiverBender!

Travis Widman

Medford Oil Co.

From the first introduction to the time we launched our new site, the experience was wonderful. The entire RiverBender team worked with us to make sure our needs were first and the site reflected our family business. They did a great job putting the site together, even checked in on a regular basis to make sure it was what we were expecting. They didn’t push anything on us we didn’t need or want, and were very professional throughout the entire process.

We highly recommend the RiverBender team!

Sanders Waste

In the 3 years we have been with RiverBender.com and Pat Schwarte, our business has doubled and nearly tripled.

Our website is complemented all the time by our customers and they love the online billing feature which makes paying your bill a breeze.  Also, the website makes it much easier for our customers to contact us through click-to-call on their mobile devices or by email after hours should they need something.

Pat and the other RiverBender Associates are always ready to lend a helping hand should a question or issue arise.

City of Alton

I am writing to thank you for everything you have done and continue to do for the City of Alton. When I initially approached you about possibly updating our website and becoming our email provider, I had no idea what I was actually asking of you. At that point, I only knew enough about the process to be dangerous.

You were more than willing to meet with our department heads and let us discuss our concerns and desires. From that meeting, it was agreed that you would redo our website and give us email support as soon as our contract with Clearpages expired. You were quite the bargain as it turned out; you updated our website and all department webpages for 50% less than we paid for the original website 10 years ago! You also agreed to a monthly maintenance fee equal to the amount we had been paying our previous vendor. In turn, we agreed that our facilities might be able to provide Riverbender.com with some marketing opportunities as long as they were tied into some of the City’s programs and services. I think it’s obvious that we both have benefited from the arrangement.

As treasurer of the City, I appreciate the service you are providing. You are using your time and talent in a way that is benefiting the whole Alton community. For that, I thank you

I am writing to both endorse and recommend RiverBender as a provider of Web Site Development and Search Engine Optimization. The best measure of success for me is, the amount of web traffic that Riverbender has steered to us. Before we had RiverBender prepared our Web Site and SEO we where lucky to get 100 users a month. Soon after RiverBender completed our project our hits skyrocketed. We now have around 1000 hits per month with nearly 80% new users.

The team at RiverBender has been courteous and helpful in all aspects in growing our web presence. Thank you RiverBender.
