To: Judith Palfrey
Shopping Portals/Palfrey Associates, Inc.

As a small business owner, we have many struggles. One of them is our advertising. We have used many different advertising services and while some of them produce; it is at a very high cost. I felt concern; we needed to be competitive with our competition. A higher overhead cost meant we could not pass any cost savings on to our customers. As a chimney / home improvement company, competitive pricing is very important part of the business. We need customers as much as customers need our services.

Judith Palfrey, of Shopping Portals/Palfrey Associates, helped XL Services by reducing our cost for advertising. We had a web site that was like a large hole in our pocket and produced no traffic for our business. We paid a lot to Google Adwords for pay-per-click ranking. Our site had no real content, was not indexed, and had no proper coding for SEO. Since Judith Palfrey built our new website we are now paying less for Adwords, our customers are able to find us in Google Search Results and that makes me very happy. I love what she has done for us. I highly recommend her services and that should say a lot. I am old school and hard to win over. Thank you!

Dear Ms. Palfrey,

I can’t tell you how enthralled we are at Phifer Construction as a direct result of the outstanding Web Site you prepared for us.

We are amongst the highest listed companies on all ten of our categories, and are ranked #1 through #3 of three (3) of them on Google results.

We have been “online” for a month and already have generated enough contracts as a direct result of your work, to more than pay for all of Palfrey Associates development and maintenance costs of our website.

We cannot than you enough for what you have done for us!

Gene Phifer, President
