About Us

We are a Pittsburgh website design company offering professional Web design, online business development, and targeted marketing and consulting services to businesses and organizations in the Pittsburgh region and nationwide. Owned and operated by Mary and Don Ecsedy since 2003, we have helped numerous clients to grow their businesses through the mechanism of their websites.

We are located within the city limits of Pittsburgh, PA, in Greenfield near Schenley Park.

We are former librarians (cataloging, law, medicine, private practice) and technical writers. As website consultants we specialize in business/website integration and results-based Search Engine Optimization.  We also work with a talented team of independent technical specialists on a per-project basis; we do all project work in-house – we do not outsource.

We started our company when we were living in the middle of the desert, in Moab Utah, and we learned early how to make the most of limited resources. To this day our overhead costs are extremely low, and we are able to pass on significant savings to our clients.
