First Wave Reviews

Lynn at First Wave has been creating websites for me for a very long time. We were one of her first customers during my time at Vermeer’s and we worked together well. Lynn has a way of transforming my creative ideas into real live websites (which is not an easy thing to do!). I appreciate her down to earth suggestions and always look forward to the end result. Thanks Lynn!
– Karin Vermeer

After watching Lynn create and run a successful, caring business since I’ve known her (1996), she was the first person I immediately turned to when I needed web site design expertise. Lynn’s professionalism and creativity helped turn my idea into reality in little time! Lynn is extremely dedicated to her clientele, passionate about design, and a stickler for quality. She is a joy to work with.

Lynn did an awesome job on my new website and continues with professional help. Thanks Lynn!!! 
– Jennette C.

After completing an $11 million expansion in 2012, we decided that our website needed to be updated. First Wave had been our host for the past 5 years. We contacted Lynn and she was there immediately. We gave her and her team the artistic freedom to create our new site. Our function was to ensure that the information that was on the site was correct and that it included the entire scope of our business. The results were impressive. The overall process was completed in a timely fashion and took less than 2 months. We would strongly recommend the use of First Wave for your website needs.

– Charmaine Grace

My website had been receiving very little traffic and I was struggling with my current website provider, and then I enlisted First Wave and their team for help. Lynn advised us that we needed to optimize our web site, and create an ad words campaign as this would direct traffic to us. This was the best money we spent; we saw an immediate improvement in leads resulting in an increase in new customers and income. First Wave is very easy to deal with, responsive and knew all the tricks of the trade; I highly recommend them to anyone who wants to increase their sales.

We just to let you know how thrilled we are with the wedding flower web site you produced for us here at Crescent Gardens in Fort Erie. The journey both of us took to produce such a beautiful and professional site was made easy for us with your guidance and knowledge of how to produce a superior site for us. We have had many comments from brides as to how pleased they were to be able to not only see our design work but also a site that gives them many ideas for their upcoming wedding. Thanks again for being such a pleasure to do business with.

First Wave Reviews

Hi Lynn, Thanks for your quick response and getting all those changes done for me as quick as you did. I sent you a few changes in the same day and I know you’re busy but I like the fact that you sent me responses to all of them telling me you got the changes and would get to them soon. I have been with other developers and they don’t get back to you to let you know they got the email so you’re left wondering. All the changes are done very quickly and I like that you sent me your ideas and suggestions on how to improve my site and make it more appealing. I also liked the fact that you informed me on the SEO changes from Google and helped me stay on top of the internet searches. I have recommended your services to my fellow DJ’s and other friends in need of a quality website and developer and will continue to do so in the future. Thank you for all your help and getting me back up and running strong and feel free to give my number as a reference to potential customers. Thank you,
Chris K.
