What Full Service Agency Clients Say

Hands down, the best thing about working with Twisted Puppy is the sheer expertise of the team.

Scott Herring is able to explain complex topics in ways that anyone can understand, and he is more than generous with sharing his knowledge. The fact that he is a web designer, programmer, and master marketer all rolled into one means his clients receive top notch websites with many capabilities already built in. We truly appreciated this because it saves us money up front, as well as future headaches. One would be hard pressed to find someone as skillful, competent, and passionate about his work as Scott. There is no doubt in my mind that Twisted Puppy has put into place the framework for what we need to succeed as an e-commerce website.

The training that Twisted Puppy has provided for our team has been invaluable. We are truly grateful for the opportunity to have had Twisted Puppy create our website and provide us online marketing services.

We would wholeheartedly recommend Twisted Puppy’s online marketing services to anyone who wants to be able to effectively communicate or convert.

What Website Development Clients Say

I love Twisted Puppy’s creativity and competence. To me, it’s so exciting to know that I can ask for an update or edit on my website and know that it will get done – and get done in a timely manner. The difference in quality from my last web designer to Twisted Puppy is night and day. I can’t tell you how pleased I am to get to work with Twisted Puppy. Plus, I found an enthusiastic ear who has much to offer in regard to suggestions and opinions.

Twisted Puppy is an all encompassing marketing bonanza! The company can handle anything from web design, to content, to blogging, to marketing pieces. It’s a one-stop shop for all of your online needs!

Twisted Puppy brought a kind and gentle approach to guiding me through the entire process. Scott made things easy for me to understand with a lot of his one on one time to make sure I got what he was going to do. There was no pushy sales pitch, just great business practices (timelines, spread sheets, emails telling me where he was in the plan and exactly what he needed from me). I found exceptional quality of work, and the team helping were just as good as he is.

What Online Marketing Clients Say

“Working with Twisted Puppy has been one of the
best decisions I’ve ever made for my business.”

Over the past couple of years, Scott has made changes to my website and marketing approach that have resulted in greater traffic and more customers. His expert knowledge of SEO, conversion methods, and content creation has put me in position to dominate my industry. I saw results almost immediately, but more impressive, and important to me, is that the improvement has been enduring, growing steadily to this day.

What Website Development Clients Say

“Our website went from one of the worst
to one of the best in our field.”

I found Twisted Puppy wanted this as much as we did, which showed in the final product. It was the partnership I was searching for in a web developer. We found Twisted Puppy creative, informative, easy to work with, responsive and overall timely.

Laura Fischer, Neptunian Woman's Club, Manhattan Beach

What Website Development Clients Say

“When you work with Scott Herring and Twisted Puppy,
you don’t have a contracting relationship,
you have a partnership focused on success.”

I chose Twisted Puppy because I needed to upgrade my website and wanted to establish a focused social marketing program. After discussing my goals and clarifying my time constraints, Twisted Puppy developed an implementation strategy. They presented sketch work, listened to my thoughts and offered flexibility yet stayed true to the strategy. Every development goal was hit, feedback and suggestions were prompt, and scope creep was kept to an absolute minimum through Scott’s management.

The end result…our new website is beautiful, focused and absolutely first rate.  Without question my expectations have been exceeded.  Our goals have been achieved, but more importantly, the feedback from visitors has been fantastic.  And when we combined the launch of our social marketing program, the results have been a steady increase in presence and sales growth!

But it hasn’t stopped there… Scott has helped me learn about monitoring, the benefits of consistently blogging, scheduling, and directing clients for the best results.
