Dr. Marmon has become a popular wine author and wanted his site to look more like a magazine.

I wanted to thank you again for your excellent work. The complete revision of my website, Grapelines.com, was clearly too daunting for me to do and I consider myself fortunate that I was able to have you undertake this project. The results are even better than I envisioned and your patience and diligence through all my many questions and revisions were greatly appreciated. The new site has only been active for a few weeks, yet I have already seen an increase in traffic and have received loads of positive feedback. Great job!

Diane Tressa Bail Bonds

Diane was looking for a simple website that would convey her message effectively, but her main concern was a private area where she and her employees could communicate and search their history. WordPress again did a great job.

I designed the logo, website, stationary, and banners for her business. Things were complicated a bit when her previous designer decided to delete her old site instead of waiting until we were ready to move it. I had to hurry, but we were able to put up the new site with very little down time.

When I came to Jim, not only did he redesign my existing website, but he got my business branded and setup up to run more efficiently in a short period of time. It is a pleasure to work with someone professional, knowledgeable and always available to "solve the problem". I am happy to have been referred to Jim by one of his customers and without hesitation will refer him to anyone and everyone I know looking for a webmaster.

Talk'n Tables™

Replaces the existing tabletops with polyurethane-covered solid oak table tops will have space available for local businesses to advertise.
These ads are digital, full color, computer generated and are permanently laminated into the tables. Restaurant tabletop advertising at it best.

This site owner wanted pages added with some in a password protected area where his clients could log in and get private information. He was quoted for many hours of work and testing for a convoluted PHP solution and the pages in that section didn't even match the rest of the site. I provided him a basic htaccess solution at no extra charge, that was simple, secure and worked right away without testing (although we did test it).

In addition I removed tables, cleaned up the code, added a nice background, added hover effects for the buttons and made all of the pages match, including the private ones.

Without any question I recommend Jim as a webmaster. He's quick, creative, a workaholic and just a darn nice guy. I was in a position with my site where I needed to start over, but Jim was able to "revamp" instead of "replace" my site which saved me money and time. Jim was referred to me by one of his customers and I am glad I went with him. He's a winner! Give him a shot.


NPD BOX CO

An ecommerce site that had many different price equations.

We would like to take this opportunity to say that working with Jim Lillicotch has been a pleasure. We were referred to him by our IT guy. All we were given was a phone number to work with. We were in need of changing our website to a new server. I will say that when contacted by us, Jim was at all times very professional. Jim was given some interesting issues to work with. Our old website was very outdated. He worked diligently to get it up to date and user friendly. He worked with us to get all issues resolved in a timely manor. Most issues were resolved in minutes, or at the most 1 day. We are very pleased with his professionalism and knowledge base. I would recommend Jim to anyone looking to start a webpage or update their current webpage.

Chamber Musicians

This site was originally done by the owner in Rapid Weaver and was very plain. Many of the pages looked different and the code was cluttered and bulky. I gave the site a consistent look and feel, added a background, removed the tables and cleaned up the code. I also added a blog that matched the rest of the site. A cleaner site for some excellent Pittsburgh Musicians

"...After creating my web site several years ago, I have tried to find someone who was knowledgeable to help me work with it and keep it updated. I went through several companies and a few individual web designers who looked very promising and supposedly were eager to help me. However, it was not until I found Jim's web site that it finally started to become clear what it takes to have a site of your own. He was able to not only run my web site on a technical level and redesign a lot of things on it, but also to explain to me a lot of details about my site and what had to be done in order to attract clients of my own to it. Even with my limited computer background Jim was able to put things in a way that was understood by me, without getting caught up too much in "techno- computer" terminology, which is what scared me away from other web designers. He keeps it all simple, clear and to the point without making it all confusing. The longer Jim has been working on my site - the more traffic I started getting to it, which is great for my business!..."


Your Career Edge

Provides assistance to businesses with exiting employees for re-employment which quickly reduces unemployment insurance cost, administrative cost and vulnerability of lawsuit while improving morale and productivity of remaining employees and goodwill of the community. Also provides support for career professionals and executives, as well as, outplacement support.

This site owner saw my work with Talk'n Tables and also wanted pages added in a password protected area where his clients could log in and get private information, except he wanted four different sections with four different password lists. He was also given large quotes by others. The same basic htaccess solution worked simply, easily and effectively with four different password lists at no additional charge. In addition, I removed tables and changed his navigation from a flash animation to plain text, html and CSS. That made his menu look very similar, but is much more effective for the search engines.

As my business grew and changed, I developed products targeted for business to business rather than the retail focus predominant in my initial website design. I needed to refocus my website to be more business professional. I also needed the added capability for my clients to have password access to information from my website. My original web designer’s change proposal included third party technical support in designing a password data base plus a couple of months testing and no guarantee that it would work to specification. I wanted no part of that arrangement.

Still searching for an alternative, I was introduced to Jim Lillicotch of Lillicotch.com. Jim’s proposal was straight forward and effective. We first moved the website to a more user friendly web hosting and he directed me in ensuring that my website was registered and managed under my ownership. These were important items in the administration of your website that were foreign to me with my first web designer. He quickly designed and tested the web access data base and it is operating to specification today.

The website is still a work in progress but Jim’s accessibility and flexibility allows me to keep my website on-line while making the changes necessary to target my new customer base. The total conversion has been reasonably prices as well.

Thanks, Jim

Al Meixner

Performing polkas, international folk, classical, rock, pop and jazz. Al's been recording and producing music projects for more than forty-four years and music marketing / merchandising has been a great interest of mine for the last thirty-five years. Sing, whistle or hum a song every day..... you'll be a happier person.

Al's site was several sites merged into one. I gave them all a common theme, cleaned up the navigation and then taught Al to maintain the site himself.

Jim Lillicotch is "da Man". In nine years I had five webmasters and was a slave to the webmaster for updates. After Jim redesigned my site, I totally maintain and update my site by myself. On two occasions I needed help - Jim responded and the problem was solved within 24 hours. He goes out of his way to give you what you want & need. I highly recommend Lillicotch to individuals, small businesses, large businesses, local, state & federal governments, other countries, etc......... Al Meixner

Jim's Maze

A game that I made.

I began by writing these mazes on graph paper 30 years ago. Several years ago I moved the pages to a web (html) design. With just a few animated GIFs and several hundred web pages I wrote this game. The layout is very simple, but the mazes are very challenging.
