After Therese tweaked my website to try to move me up in the search pages, our business went from page 5 to page 1 in less than a week! Very exciting! I am looking forward to the new business that I know will be generated due to the SEO work that Therese did on my website.
Leslie Franks, Owner
Purr-fection Pet Sitting
I was at a loss about designing a website for my pet first aid business. I contacted Therese because I had seen her website and a few others that she had designed. I liked hers so much that I mentioned to her "can we just copy yours?" Much to my delight she designed one for me that I like even more. I wasn't even aware she had it up and running when I had asked her a question. Her answer was "check it out." I was so excited when I went to the domain name and found the most eloquent website I could have possibly asked for. I was amazed at how quickly it was up, running, and even appeared on search engines. I had a contact via e-mail the first day it was up!
Not only does Therese do a fantastic job at designing the site. She also works with you (and I'm not the most computer literate person around) so that if you need to make changes in the future you can do it on your own. It seemed pretty easy and I know that if I run into problems that Therese will be there to help me. I have recommended her to others I know that might be interested in a website and hope to work with her again in the future on other designs for additional businesses I own.

No matter what type of business you have--if you want more clients and more exposure for your business--then I would highly recommend Therese Kopiwoda's social media consulting. Through her one-on-one telephone coaching, Therese can help you easily and effortlessly navigate the world of Twitter, Facebook, and Linked In (and other social media sites). Her coaching will help you create a business profile that "pops" as well as help you market your service to your specific client base. Therese is able to explain the basics and intricacies of social media in a way that all experience levels can easily understand. She has led two teleclasses through my company, Six-Figure Pet Sitting Academy.com and received much positive feedback from attendees about her vast knowledge of social media and her tips and tools that make it easier to manage. Let Therese show you how to increase your business using social media! You won't be disappointed.
- Kristin Morrison, Founder, Six-Figure Pet Sitting Academy
I have known Therese for several years and during that time, she has taught me much and has been a role model for me. She is kind, knowledgeable, respectful of her peers and always the professional. I had the pleasure of attending a session Therese gave at a pet sitting conference and was impressed by her ability to lead and to hold the focus of an audience. I also worked closely with Therese in planning a National Pet Sitting conference. Her work ethic is impecable.Therese's professionalism shines & bolsters our entire industry. She continually impresses me with her ability to cope in stressful situations and she handles difficult situations with remarkable patience and tact. She’s one of the most honest people I’ve met and that is easily seen both in her business transactions and her personal life as well. She is forthright but never intimidating. I have always been impressed by her authentic, professional and caring manner.

Therese was fantastic on the teleclass sponsored by Kristin Morrison, Founder of Six-Figure Pet Sitting Academy. Her knowledge of how to best position ourselves as business owners on sites like LinkedIn was incredibly helpful! As a matter of fact, I went and changed a whole bunch of stuff on my profile and sent out some connection requests and made recommendations because she inspired me so much! I have also made a personal commitment to try to recommend at least one person with whom I've worked each week on LinkedIn in order to help support their businesses. It feels good to give... and that's what I really came away with from Therese's presentation last night!

Therese has been doing the internet, social media and all things WWW long before it became the recognized marketing and branding tool it is known for today. Therese knows what and how it works to bring you business and recognition. She easily explains (so that even a knuckle head like me can understand) things in a way that make sense. And make you want to take action. If you are serious about building a web-presence, then call Therese today. I can not recommend her highly enough!
- Thom Somes, “The Pet Safety Guy™
When I originally decided to have a website for my pet business, I designed it myself through a company online. It worked for a while but I believed I wasn't getting the hits that I should have received and it wasn't anything compared to my competitors. When I advertised on petsitusa.com, I found out that Therese designed websites. It was the best move I ever made. She's so creative and knew exactly what I wanted. We worked together through flaws and now I get more hits than ever! She also taught me how to do things myself on my own website. PetsitUSA is the best!
- Andrea Infante, A Bark And A Meow
When my 20 something nephew dropped the ball in developing my business website, I decided to get professional help. I called Therese. She was helpful, creative, knowledgeable, professional and her charges were reasonable. I was very pleased with her efforts.
As a "mature" adult, Therese has helped me into the 21st century by showing me the benefits of social networking, something I always considered was just for kids! Therese introduced me to Facebook and other sites. She developed my Facebook page, and then gave me a one on one tutorial on how to best utilize it. I am now a happy Facebooker and my customers love it!
If you need help in developing your online presence, call Therese. She is the best!!
