"You showed us how to have the website we want and one in
which we can make the changes on our
own time table with no costs
I want to thank you for the invaluable
and trusted help that you have given us over the past few years. As
you know, we have literally
spent tens of thousands of dollars on website development. Actually
we have had 3 full web sites prior to meeting you. You showed us how
to have the website we want and one in which we can make the changes
on our own time table with no costs involved. In addition, you have
helped us optimize our website so that our rankings now make us
competitive in a very competitive field.
As a person who is technologically challenged at times, I appreciate
the fact that you have always spoken about the needed changes and
optimization challenges in a practical and easily understood manner
and walked us through the processes.
We would be lost without your invaluable help. Thank you again.

want to take a moment to thank you for the incredible work you did
for our company. Before we met you we spent thousands of dollars
with an industry consultant who sold us a website and SEO package.
Not only did our ratings cave after her "expert team" completed our
design, but she explained the negative web response by trying to
sell us more features.
taking some of your classes at the Small Business Development
Center, I was impressed with your expertise. I ask a few of your
customers and several of the counselors at Small Business
Development Center about your work and received excellent
recommendations. After contacting you, you reviewed our website and
then met with our team, proposal in hand. You gave us a detailed
overview-short term and long term-of what was needed for an
effective website. You gave us time lines and outlined costs. We
signed on and you started working before the check hit the bank.
You have completely reversed our
negative web presence. We have number one and/or page one rankings
on almost all the keywords that are relevant to our company. You
have helped us put systems in place that continue to garner us high
The phone is ringing and we are
busier than ever. We are completely thrilled with the outcome of
your services and give you an unqualified excellent recommendation.
Through the process of changing our
website you have been a steady and patient trainer. You make
yourself readily available. You take the time to explain each phase
as we are going through it, why the process is in place and what the
company must do to improve and maintain its rankings. You possess a
unique mix of technological and business savvy with training
Thank you again for the wonderful
work. I would be happy to provide a reference for you at your
"Having been involved in the original design of our
website, I was sure that we were already getting as many quality
"hits" and inquiries as were possible. But when Dick Myers showed me a
statistical analysis demonstrating how we ranked in the various search
engines I knew we had to take action to improve this part of our
"Dick showed us how to rework the language and the design of our site
to improve our rankings and make it easier for our potential customers
to find us."
"Within weeks of our redoing the site (a relatively painless
operation), we almost tripled the number of qualified leads we were
getting in specific target areas of our business. And, a higher
percentage of these leads were converted to paying customers. We have
more than made back our investment in new, high-quality paying
clients. We will certainly be continuing our relationship with Dick
Myers and Computer Productivity Consulting."

us the kind of useful information you did."
retail jeweler had created a web site through an on-line mall
provider. They were achieving some sales through the site, but had no
real marketing built into the design. The site developers had provided
a list of "things you can do to promote your site", but had
not provided any direct marketing for the site beyond listing it in
the mall directory and submitting it to a few search engines.
pointing out numerous ways that the marketing could be improved, even
within the existing structure of the site on the mall, the jeweler
elected to commit to a new, effectively designed site. Work
begins in May 2001.

small business client had a number of problems that included modifications to a web
site that was not producing the business leads that it should,
difficulty in finding appropriate software for operations support,
upgrades needed to office equipment and support arrangements for the
resulting improvements, and a slow internet connection that was
hampering the ability to communicate effectively with clients.
After the initial visit, we provided an outline of the steps that
needed to be taken to correct the problems, and immediately
visits with specialists in each of the areas to discuss specific

chain of quick service restaurants needed to upgrade its software that
provided all its management information on the operation of its
business. Unfortunately, the software developer had been
acquired by another company and was no longer supporting the POS
("Point Of Sale") equipment in use in the stores. The
supplier of the POS equipment had a software application intended to
meet the reporting needs, but it did not report in a manner that was
consistent with the structure of the client's business.
support enabled them to identify a different software application in
use in California, from a developer who was not currently operating in
Texas, and to coordinate the communication between vendors to make the
system work for them. Their only other alternative was to upgrade all
their POS equipment in all stores in order to changeover to a
different management reporting application. This was a
substantial cost avoidance, and does not consider the additional
business disruption that would have occurred if their managers had to
learn an entirely new system.
An attorney working from his home office had not been able to retrieve his e-mail for months. He
did not have the time or experience to investigate the cause, and was getting along without his communication. We determined that he had cable service installed in his home, and recommended that he sign up for internet access through his cable connection. We
helped make the arrangements, recommended and installed some upgrades to the office software that he was using, and showed him how to search for legal documents and references over the internet. As we left his office after showing him the internet search that he now had available,
he was online, reviewing a legal brief pertaining to a matter he was currently handling for a client.
