If I had thought initially to consult Jeff Cohan and nSiteful, I would never have had the opportunity to discover how lucky I was. Because—if I had been smart enough to go to Jeff first—I never would have known how infinitely superior to other website design firms his is.
Having built a house in Anguilla (BeachCourt Villa—www.beachcourtvilla.com) and wanting to market it for rental, I needed an effective website.
I did not know that my high school friend, Jeff (who was valedictorian of our class, which put a slight strain on the “friendship”) was designing, creating, and implementing websites, so I looked for other people to do that for me. What an education—in inattentiveness, incompetence, and inactivity. People would not return calls or emails, or they had no time, or they made promises that they just could not keep.
My luck improved, when a mutual friend (with whom I had shared my frustration) told me that Jeff was “in the biz.” The rest—as they say—was sweet and simple history.
Unlike a lot of competitors, Jeff is not “just” a techno-geek or a salesman or a designer; he is the best synthesis of all of these virtues, and others. First of all, he listens, and listens well (and—in order to do that—he is available and accessible, 24/7 via all media: email, fax, and conference call). Once he listens, he learns what you need and want (or at least what you think you need and want).
After understanding our objectives (and—like a good lawyer—the expert’s job is to accept that the objectives are the clients’; the means to accomplish those objectives are the experts’), Jeff showed us alternative means of accomplishing them. He is very, very good at explaining things: what a welcome difference from most of the people I consulted initially.
The creation of the website was collaborative; Jeff found means by which to include my wife and several relatives and friends who were close to the entire villa-building process. He encouraged questions and answered them in a way that brought consensus about how the project should proceed.
Jeff got us from first consultation to launch-date quickly. We have since “tweaked” the site, and—like most things worth having—it continues to grow. All changes are accomplished promptly and at reasonable prices. He is scrupulously honest and accurate about his time-based charges (and he is flexible in offering different options for dealing with project-costs).
I cannot recommend nSiteful more strongly or positively. If you want a website, if you love and care about what you do, Jeff will give you a website that makes you love your project/business all the more. His efforts daily redound to the benefit of BeachCourt Villa, and we are most appreciative.
