Riverbend Head Start & Family Services

I will do anything to promote Riverbender.com! Mike was outstanding at jumping into action to help me avert disaster and Kari’s design for the TransitionsCounselingServices.com site are a hit.

I’ll do my best to drive more people to the site and cross promote much better.

Eagle Home Improvement

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 She has taken our completely outdated website and turned it into something that has been a great tool for our customers.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.

King Law Firm, LLC

The staff at Riverbender.com has exemplified outstanding customer service in regard to my advertising and website design. As a local business owner, I strongly recommend their services for your business.

St. John’s Community Care

Alison, Mike, and Pat,

Kudos to all of you for surviving the design and launch of the St. John’s website. You are consummate professionals.

We are grateful for your friendship and talents! Thanks for everything!

“Amy and her team understand the value of client service. They are prompt and thorough when revising creative proofs or researching the answers to my technology questions. It is apparent that their goal is to build a long-term relationship.”

Jersey County Clerk’s Office

Since switching to Riverbender.com for website hosting services for the Jersey County Clerk’s office in 2015, we have received many positive comments from our constituents.  Pat Schwarte has been extremely helpful in getting me trained to use CMS, so we are always able to keep up-to-date, relevant information on our site.  In particular, he was great with helping me get started posting my own Election Night results, which has been a huge hit with voters.   And we make extensive use of the Calendar feature, which helps us remain in compliance with state laws on public notice requirements for various meetings and events.  We have seen an increase in the number of people contacting us from the website through their mobile device, and I’m happy that we can always be reached via email directly from the site.  I think this helps prevent frustrations that often accompany a contact to a government office!  Overall, I would recommend Riverbender.com as a great value!

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!

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 thanks you

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

New website is fantastic

Andy’s Auto Body and Andy’s Tire and Auto Service would like to give a HUGE ‘Thank You’ to Wendy and the RiverBender.com team. They designed and built our new websites and we couldn’t be any happier with the finished product. Wendy was there to help with any and everything that we needed and always went above and beyond to make sure that all of our needs were met. Even after the website’s completion, we still get a tremendous amount of support from the entire team. Keep up the great work!!

Great websites and SEO development

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.
