I have been a customer with Active Web Group since 2005. They helped set up a home inspection website for my business. I have had nothing but excellent customer service. Recently, it was time to update my website to meet my client’s needs via a mobile device/responsive friendly website. Donna Weber was my go to person. She was very helpful and had great idea’s on how and what I should update. Web design or a look of a website is definitely not my strong suit, but they showed me numerous styles and examples.
