Doug did a great job setting up our website, he came up with fantastic ideas to add to it I would never have thought of, and some of the other web builders never mentioned or probably even knew about.
After we were up and running, our site flowed seamlessly.
If I have any questions his product support is great, all my questions are handled quickly.
I would not hesitate to recommend his company for anyone needing a website.

Doug (Port Angeles Website Services / Best Way Websites) set up a website for me a little less than a year ago. Since then I have been averaging at least one if not more jobs from it a month as a direct result of new business through the website and search engine searches.
The cost of the website was covered with the first job I got!
I am reaching customers that I would not be able to if I went with conventional marketing. I just finished a floor for a family moving here from Wisconsin. Everything was handled over the internet and when they move here they will have a fresh new floor in their house.
It is a great tool for telling my customers about myself and the services I offer. It saves a lot of time for me because I do not have to go through all those things each time. I think that customers feel a little more at ease once they find out about me from my website.
I have been told from other website people how professional my site looks.

My wife, Tammy and I started working with Doug about six months before we opened the doors on our new B&B, Southard House Bed and Breakfast Inn in Enid, Oklahoma.
From the beginning all the way through the development process he was incredibly responsive and timely, and worked with us to create a website we love.
By the time we opened Southard House for business in May, Doug’s design and SEO skills had pushed our business to the top of search engine results for our market on Google, Bing and Yahoo. The bulk of our business since opening has come from out-of-state visitors who found us through search engine results, and then booked rooms through our website.
We continue to receive compliments on our website, and it is very easy for us to make our own changes as needed to reflect specials and changes to our business. Doug is always available for help, and has been tremendous about returning calls and emails and providing step-by-step help with changes and updates.
Choosing Local Website Experts was one of the best choices we made during our business development, and we’re looking forward to a long business relationship with them!

I met Doug at our local home show. I had a website, but it wasn't making me much money. I knew it needed updating. Doug took a quick look at it and said he could redo the whole thing and make it look good for just $250. I thought that was a pretty good deal. He created a free demo for me to review and I was sold! I have been participating in forums in my industry for years, so I already had pretty good visitation to my website.
The problem was ... they weren't buying. Doug assured me that once he had the site completed (took 2 days, I think!), I would start seeing an immediate increase in leads. He was right!
Then he told me that I needed to do two things: 1) create a "sales funnel" for my products and 2) get an introductory video up. It took me a while, but I finally got the "sales funnel thing" done with his help.
I had been using the Local Website Experts website editor (CMS) for only 3 months and saw a tremendous increase in my online business. I was getting 4 contacts a week where I normally would only get one or two a month! (My website contacts had increased from 2 per month to over 16 per month)
It had actually doubled my gross income in within 4-5 months.
With each step (recommended by Local Website Experts), I saw my income double again!
The ease of use, affordable rates, and outstanding tech support makes this service an absolute must for anyone serious about running a business on the internet.

About 6 months ago I contacted Rome Georgia Websites (my Local Website Experts affiliate) about doing a new Website. I spoke with Paul and with Doug. Got a little info from both.
Even though I found Paul's site because he was #1 on google for the search I did, I was still sort if sceptical, so I tried marketing my website myself, primarily using Google PPC ... thinking that this would be really simple. So I tried using Google PPC and 3 months later my phone still did not ring.
I thought maybe I would just call the Local Website Experts back, so I did. It cost me a lot if wasted time and money for not using them first.
Doug walked me through every aspect of making a working website, and so I hired them to completely redo my website and I also ordered their most basic SEO (Search Engine Optimization) program. They told me that it might take up to a year for me to see the kinds of results I was expecting.
Well, it only took a few months and now our phone is ringing non-stop!
If you will do what they ask you to, you will have that perfect website that actually works for you.
Thanks Paul and Doug for all you help.

The web site looks great! We have received many excellent comments on how wonderful the site is AND more importantly it is functional and we are getting clients!
Under your guidance, we were able to get the site up and running in a very short time…thank you! As you know, I am a complete non-techie and your help has made the process easier than I would have imagined. With your additional help, I am learning how to do simple web site updates.

We also knew that we didn't really have the money to pay someone to manage our site nor did we really want to give up control; after all, it is our online introduction to our business, and thus to us.
Local Website Experts had a booth set up at the Port Angeles Fair and we started chatting about the Pajezy program (Website Content Management System) and of course, it was a match made in Heaven! There is so very much to know about proper website design and function! We didn't know WHAT we didn't know; but, Doug made all that easier for us.
The Pajezy CMS is designed for people who know very little about website design to still be able to create something that is a reflection of them and then to be able to maintain the content relevancy without having to go back to school. This Pajezy Content Management System was truly created with people like us in mind... and when they say customer service is important to them ... they are not joking!
With just a quick phone call they have been available to us every step of the way with guidance on website creation, domain hosting, training, SEO training, and tons of other small business advice such as marketing and advertising!
And all of this they provide at very affordable prices. We are so proud of our website and we give Doug at Local Website Services tremendous thanks for all the sincere and friendly advice he has passed our way. Doug has always had our best interests at heart and we believe he truly does want to help us be successful. We believe ya just can't go wrong with the Local Website Services program!

We found Port Angeles Website Development and Internet Marketing when we were looking for someone to make updates to our exsiting website. Doug showed us a free demonstration website to replace our former site, and it was just like we wanted it! (Except for the colors.) We asked that the site match the color and images on our take out menus, which was done immediately and we are so happy.
We are also very happy that our website is responsive. It works right and looks good even when someone is using an iphone or android.

I first met Doug with Local Website Experts at our home show. I talked with him there and explained I didn't have much of a budget to build and market a website.
I offered a payment plan and he accepted it. Then, all I had to do is answer some questions and provide some pictures and Local Website Experts did the rest.
How expert are they? My website paid for itself about 50 times over in the first year. I've never had any advertising I've ever done do that for me!
Bill Mair, Owner | G&M Vinyl Siding & Gutters, Port Angeles, Washington
Our first website was developed by a relative. It was inadequate. Doug was local, so I called him and we gave him a try. How has it worked out? Well, our website looks like it was developed by a professional ... and
Whenever I need an addition to the site, I fire off an email and make a phone call. It is always done perfectly and quickly. (I know lots of people like to edit their sites themeselves, that is just not me.)
Jim LaPorte, Owner | Mudslayer Mfg., Sequim, Washington
When we purchased our motel it had an existing web site. We spent the first year just leaving things the way they were while we got familiar with our market/property. Our business is seasonal and so is our pricing – it was very frustrating and expensive to have to pay to have our website updated everytime we needed a change. It never occurred to me that it would be possible to do it ourselves!
When it came time for a fresh look – we started doing research and shopping around to see what was available to us. We really like the idea of doing business locally – and keeping our money on the Peninsula – so that was one of the original reasons we considered Local Website Experts and Port Angeles Website Services.
Doug was not the first person we had called to consult with – so we had a little experience under our belt and felt we could make a good comparison of product/services offered, price, ease of use, customer service, time line to completion etc.
The level of service offered by Local Website Experts stood out immediately. Doug was seriously interested in learning about our business so he could develop a website that would represent our motel and draw attention to our business in the markets we were trying to reach.
He offered valuable advise about things that had never occurred to us – and I can say with certainty that we have had an increase in revenue from following his advice. We have come to rely on Doug as a “consultant” for nearly all of our advertising decisions. We are a small family owned business. It is expensive to market a business – and he has proven to be a wealth of information and good advice.
We also use Port Angeles Website Services for the design/fulfillment of much of our printed advertisements. Once our website was developed – Doug was able create quality rack cards and business cards that really gave us a whole new look.
We have been using Port Angeles Website Services for 7 years and are extremely satisfied! We are often approached by people trying to market new sites/features – sometimes with what seems to be cost savings. There is no way I would ever change – when you find something that works this well, you stick to it!
I could go on and on about the benefits we have had from choosing Port Angeles Website Services 7 years ago. Our web presence has grown, we have benefited from the addition of a tertiary site and the addition of a booking engine, which Local Website Experts got configured for us as well. The Local Website Experts Website Editor allows me to easily edit my website as often as I like – adding pictures, updating pricing, etc.
Traci & Jeff Jernigan, Owners | Allview Motel, Port Angeles, Washington
It went together so quickly and they were so willing to work with us to create a site that we are very proud of.
Doug did a great job of translating what we told him about the B&B and our business into exactly what we wanted our website to portray. Great Job!
