CNBC Contacted me because of Celebrity Sites®!
I just wanted to take a moment to say WOW! My last website took many years and many versions to never quite get what I wanted. In less than 30 days you guys designed and built a brand new website that I love and now, not even 60 days since it’s been live, I’m starting to get calls from television producers! Just last week I got a call from CNBC because they were searching for financial experts to feature on a new show they are launching and they found me thanks to my new website. This is incredible, thanks so much for the great experience. Anyone who isn’t taking advantage of your unique expertise of Celebrity Branding business people online is missing the boat in many ways!
- Brian Fricke, Owner, President
In the 14 years Iíve owned businesses, Iíve worked with several IT and web designers. Never has the process been as easy and seamless as it has with CelebritySites. Not once have I entered into a new technology relationship without the fear similar to that of when an entrepenuer makes the dreaded decision to change their phone company; that panic that lives deep down inside that can only grow from past experience.
Iím ecstatic to say, we have already moved far beyond any other company Iíve worked with at this stage of the game. My only regret, I didnít make this commitment sooner; saving myself a lot of time, stress, and lets be honest- money!
Thank you Lindsay for all your support, your passion, and your investment in me.

“Thanks a lot for such a good work. Probably for you it was something that you just do all the time, but after I had so many unfortunate dealings with three of your predecessors and never felt quite satisfied, I can really appreciate and thank you for what you are doing with my new site.”
Thanks Celebrity Sites®! With your help we just got picked up on a worldwide site for our music buffet option. They even put it on the front page of their site as a “breakthrough”! Our site, art and design looks fantastic. Well done! We couldn’t do it without you!”
