Client Testimonials

“Karen continuously goes above and beyond the call of duty. She has taken such good care of my web site, alerting me of any issues that could become potential problems. I don’t much about the tech world, so it’s really comforting to me knowing that my web site, my business and my customers are all in good hands! She is also a pleasure to work with. She is smart, compassionate and has the patience of an angel!”

– Lydia Saunders lydianaturals.com

“Karen, you are a kind, thoughtful, smart, fast, communicative person and you go the extra mile for me. You have done things for me that I didn’t even know to ask for. You seem to truly care about my site and business. I would recommend you to anyone.”

– Sarah Thomas, BS, MAc., LAc., Dipl. Ac., claritystonemedicine.com

“I don’t know how to thank you enough, Karen, for your skill in creating something beautiful and clean from all the various (non-technically described) items we wanted on the site. Although we had your colleague on board to help with design I see you as our main person. You always took the time to understand what we really wanted even when we weren’t certain ourselves. You do a very good job explaining things to us without the jargon that lay people outside your field don’t easily understand. You made yourself very available to us and shepherded us through the process. I would (and probably will) work with you again in a minute.”

– Amy Mandel, tzedekresidency.org

“Karen is wonderful to work with. With her quick turnaround time, her open (and fast) communication, and her up-to-date technical knowledge, I will not only be using her again for my own projects, but also recommending her to other designers and clients. I can’t recommend her highly enough!”

– Devon Morgan, devonmorgan.com

“Definitely 5 stars! Karen is a meticulous website developer who has a broad understanding of marketing and business development. She has helped me organize my WordPress website and provided tremendously insightful assistance with social networking. Karen’s work has really helped me grow my business and feel confident about my web presence. I highly recommend her!”

– Kristine Kaoverii Weber, www.subtleyoga.com

“Working with Karen on the development and implementation of my new website was a wonderful experience. Karen’s technical expertise is outstanding. SEO (Search Engine Optimization) was a key element of my project requirements. Within a couple of weeks of my new website being launched, it was popping up on the first page of general key word searches and my website was listed within the first two to four listings on specific key word searches. Many of my new clients find me through Google searches and there was a noticeable increase in the number of calls that I received. This was a direct result of Karen’s work. I am extremely pleased with the results. In addition to the technical knowledge which Karen has, she is also very dependable. She is thorough, diligent with details, and excellent at follow through. She was also available to make minor updates to my website after the completion of the initial project and those changes were always made promptly. Best of all, Karen is a joy to work with. She listens carefully and she has a kind and gentle nature that makes working with her such a pleasant experience. I highly recommend Karen for any website project. Call her and you will see what I mean!”

“I’m totally clueless when it comes to the mechanics of Websites, and frankly, I don’t care to learn, since I’m running a small business. Karen Mazza at Studio 88 not only designed a great Website for us, but solved our problem of easily handling Web orders without manually processing credit cards. She clearly and concisely gave us our options, recommended one which we chose, and we’ve been happy ever since. A little tweaking here and there, and we’ve been good to go over the last couple of years. I highly recommend this firm for any small business looking for professional website management.”

– Sheila Dunn

“Our site has been tweaked, changed, and persuaded to look like it should – hooray! This could only have been possible because we found a WordPress web developer/SEO person who is good, and she gets back to you. We have gone through several people who say they can help us, but have been nothing but a waste of time and money. In case you need someone to save you, her name is Karen Mazza of Studio88.”

– Sadhvi Gantenbein, www.oops50.com

“Karen, thank you for the SEO work you have done to help our site Asheville Sangha. It is a success that exceeds Trey and my expectations, for sure. Thank you!”

– Cullen Anderson, ashevillesangha.ning.com

“Karen Mazza has done a fabulous job of steering 3 technologically-illiterate women over fifty through the difficult channels of building a web presence. She has been our terrific guide to the technical quagmires behind building a blog. We know we can call on her whenever we need our Word Press site modified, either through advanced programming, simple updates, or configuring the graphics—but she has also served as a trusted advisor on marketing, SEO, etc. She has been with us since just after the launch of our blog, Oops50, and has served as our very capable and always patient Word Press administrator, problem solver, emergency therapist, and techie-extraordinaire.”

– Jane Bosman Hatley, www.oops50.com

“Prior to Karen helping us upgrade our website, we had no web inquiries. In fact, when we did a Google search for our site by name, we couldn’t even find it in the search results. With Karen’s help (she converted our site design from tables to CSS and did all her SEO magic), we can now not only find our site by name, we are showing up #1 or close for our chosen keywords. More importantly, we now have many inquires and have gotten several customers via our website. We highly recommend Karen. She knows her stuff and is a real professional when it comes to SEO and website strategy.”

– Brenda Close, www.considerthejobdone.com

“I was so fortunate to come across Karen and Studio88 at a time when I needed her expertise to help me implement an important design project. Not only is she a total professional she is also very friendly and pleasant to work with. She has the ability to understand and bring your vision to reality. I enjoy working with Karen and look forward collaborating with her on more successful projects in the future.”

– Reni, owner, conceptual designer | www.blissandtellbrandingcompan.com

“It was our pleasure to meet Karen Mazza of Studio 88 when she participated in our small business makeover. As a member of the makeover team she was responsible for creating our new web site – she wrote the code that transformed the concept into the actual web site. With good humor and hard work (and a broken arm!), she met the deadlines and got the job done under significant time pressures. When I asked to be able to modify our web site when I need to she immediately responded with a way to do that (by creating the site in WordPress). I have greatly appreciated her quick, accurate work and would highly recommend her.”

– Evelyn Anderson, owner, Asheville Playgrounds

“Karen has an ability to understand my non-techno savvy inquiries, always can translate my techno-phobic questions, and has helped unscramble every computer related mess I have gotten myself into. She helped me to inhance the visibility of my gallery’s website, and whenever my website software has acted funny, I call, and miraculously she is there, she is calm, so calm she calms me down…no small feat….and quickly assesses the problem and walks either me or my staff thru the issue…..Karen and Studio 88 are a valuable resource for us here at American Folk Art & Framing.”

– Betsey Rose, amerifolk.com

“I have worked with Karen for many years. She was a word of mouth referral from another dear friend and business women that I highly respect. Karen listens closely to what the client needs. With her gentle kind approached she gets the job done in a timely manner. Not only was she good with tourism business, I know that no matter what business I create, I will always be able to call upon her. Karen completes professional work careful because she has pride in her skill. She builds relationships as opposed to filling orders.”

– Arrachme, Owner of Carolina Mountain Rentals, Asheville/BlackMountain, NC

“I have two websites www.stoneyknobcafe.com and www.vinovinowines.com and for the last year Karen Mazza of Studio 88 has been updating and servicing my sites with excellent results! Anytime I have had a problem or needed an update she has always provided superior customer service. A very detailed and patient professional web designer whom I would highly recommend her services to anyone who is thinking of building or updating their website. A true asset to the web design world!””

John Dermas, Owner, http://www.stoneyknobcafe.com/ and www.vinovinowines.com

“We wanted Karen to create our website because she is so passionate about helping small businesses succeed. She is very meticulous and thorough in her work. She went above and beyond being a web designer for us. We are very happy with how our website looks and we appreciate the fact that Karen still checks in with us.””

– Elizabeth, Sam and Aimee, The People’s Acupuncture of Asheville

She immediately understood our vision and was able to produce exactly what the client wanted. Karen worked at a quick pace and was professional and organized – I would recommend her for your web needs.”

– Meredith Aman, Account Supervisor, The S3 Agency

“What I appreciate most about Karen’s work is her dedication to making sure all the details are well taken care of, as well as her determination to meet expectations and deadlines. And she does it all with an intention to understand and serve the client, the person. Also, as a designer, it is a pleasure to work with Karen’s technical expertise as I know that what I design will be implemented as designed.”
