“Rebecca is very diligent and enthusiastic with her duties as she dedicated her private time for any last minutes tasks with patience. In addition to that, she is a self-sufficient and quick learner, and she understands the nuances of graphic software and how to use it tactically. She was responsible for most of the marketing material including posters, labels, flyers, our website, etc. All the work was appreciated by our employees and became great communication tools to deliver company strategy to our customers.”


Elegant Events by Stephanie

Mid-way through the project Stephanie received an opportunity to promote herself at a large event later that evening. Though the cards had not been finalized yet, fresh space was able to have the cards finished, printed and delivered to her in the north end of the city within 2 hours. Stephanie had this to say, "I love you! The cards were a hit!"

"I've been very happy with the website that Fresh Space Group (FSG) has developed for me. My experience continues to be a positive one with FSG with timely updates, suggestions, and revisions to my website.

Prior to my involvement with FSG my website was poorly ranked with Google and other search engines, and the format of my website was not compatible with all web browsers giving some of my viewers a distorted visit to my webpages. After FSG designed my website, I have seen an increase in traffic to my website, an increase in my google search rank, and compatibility with all web browsers.

FSG is a knowledgeable and creative company that not only has given me a beautiful website, but has also given me the help I needed to put my business into the forefront. With suggestions on captivating my audience with particular images, descriptions, benefits, altering my 'about' page and home page, FSG has assisted me with improving all the components of the website to make it a success.

FSG has also worked with me to identify the goals and objectives of my website which has helped to provide the best layout and design for purpose that I have outlined. FSG allows me to maintain full control over the website, but with assistance to help me realize what it is I want for the website.

FSG provided preview links and included me early in the development and creative process for the initial design of the website which helped to make the project a success from the start, with the project always staying true to my vision for the website. FSG continues to include my thoughts into all aspects of the website, keeping me informed, providing me with options, and working efficiently to create the items I need and want.

FSG realizes the importance of communication, responding to my questions and emails in an clear, concise, and timely manner.

FSG created a beautiful flash intro for my website that scrolls within my website, incorporates video, images, links, an online shop, and more for my website!

I definitely recommend working with FSG to develop your website and business. FSG will help you with more than just your website, they help you with making your business more successful overall." - Lindsey Forkun

Jump Into Health Fair

I approached Rebecca in fall 2009 when I was in the process of putting together a free Community Health Fair in November and I needed to create a flyer to advertise the event. I shared with her my vision and the audience that I wanted to capture.

Rebecca was able to come up with some great images and ideas for colour, image and layout very quickly in order to meet our deadline. My colleagues and I were truly impressed with her work! I will definitely work with her again.

Praise for Fresh Space WordPress Training

"Couldn't have done it without you!!!”

  • Carolyn Patricia Griswold | Thirstybeaver.ca

“I have attended many of Rebecca Ormond's workshop's and training sessions on blogging, marketing and motivation/inspiration! These sessions focused on the tools of taking the plunge into writing creatively, and using the blog format to promote one's business primarily through WordPress but also in social media and website creation.

I became hooked immediately by her informative and fun presentations, and her ability to listen, adapt, and recommend solutions to issues for a variety of different personalities and business structures, and to inspire them to move forward on their goals.

As a result I have gone from having no presence on the web whatsoever for my gardening business, to having a full set consisting of website, a blog on WordPress, and a network of social media connections that are already paying dividends, raising my profile, gathering connections and making it easy for prospective customers to find me and understand what I am about.

I have learned a lot as a result of Rebecca's support and advice, and feel much more confident and fearless about jumping into the web world and launching myself as a writer, business person and horticulturist.

I have recommended her to many of my colleagues for web-building and marketing and will continue to do so, as I will continue to rely on her for helping me to improve my web presence. I am very grateful for her help and very happy to have found her.

“I have certainly valued the time spent with you in person for the one-on-one training regarding the awesome website you have created for me, www.smartemini.com. Although I am quite adept in the use of computers and hardware, I am someone who is behind the times regarding social media! I didn't even have a Facebook or Twitter account. You've helped me set all of these up, including the blog page on my site and taught me how to enter my own blog posts along with commenting on other blog sites (with Gravatar) so that I'm actually doing it myself! You have incredible patience and a wealth of knowledge in site design/building and social media. I knew I chose the right person for the job!

“Rebecca is a patient, knowledgeable instructor and workshop leader when it comes to teaching people about the opportunities of WordPress. Her knowledge is astounding, and can make recommendations on various plugins, blogging tactics, and social media marketing strategies. I have often thought that WordPress seems relatively straightforward to use, but it is not. Questions arise as I update my site and consider strategies and plugins. It only took me a couple of minutes to fully realize the value of her services, her knowledge, and the full benefits in hiring her as a web-design expert. Her patient approach is both helpful and soothing – which is exceptionally valuable when it comes to technical design and to workshop facilitation. She is unique amongst designers, as she is able to combine her technical knowledge with her tremendous people skills. Rebecca is a true asset to any firm that is considering a web designer/WordPress expert.”

I believe that Rebecca Ormond is knowledgeable in WordPress and is quite good at presenting WordPress in a workshop format. After attending Rebecca's first workshop, I successfully started my own WordPress blog and am quite pleased with the outcome.

  • Patrick Dzieciol | Tips4Camping.wordpress.blog

Rebecca led a group of eager, but green, entrepreneurs in setting up our websites using WordPress.  Her instructions for the creation, set-up and usage of the WordPress website was concise, straightforward and easy to follow.  She is highly skilled in WordPress, eager to share her Knowledge and open and receptive to questions and feedback.

She further enhanced that experience by offering monthly blog sessions for the neophytes in the group, like myself, to assist in its use of blogging and in social media in general.

Thank you for all your help!
