“Sites by Iris has a “Basic” website development package called Do-It-Yourself WordPress Website. We wanted to learn to create our own website and make changes and this package is perfect for that. Iris is a great teacher and has been very responsive to any questions I’ve had. Be sure and schedule additional time to learn search engine optimization (SEO). She is super knowledgeable and I will continue to schedule the optional consulting agreement with her as it is so great to have someone experienced and well-informed to rely on with my website and SEO questions. I highly recommend her.” Diandra Rhodes – Real Estate Sales
