As a sculptor it was hard for me to get a website organized that was cognisant of my creative thinking and the techincal aspects of web design. Rainbow Graphics helped me to come up with a design that was both cost efficient and served the needs of my clients. It has saved me time and energy in that I can send clients to my website rather than copy paste relevant details in the email. Hilary keeps my site updated, notifies me when it is time to renew my domain name and posts new works as needed.

But mostly I have enjoyed working with her, hearing how well her other sites have done, and sharing with you the successes I have had due to her expertise and innovative solutions for my website needs.

Hilary, We are very satisfied with the services you and Jake provide at Rainbow Graphics. We get frequent calls and emails from all kinds of hosting, optimization and design services but we don't even talk to these folks. You and Jake are a solid team and you have the record to prove it!

"Hi Dan, thank you for writing.

Hilary designed my web site in a very short time frame and I was operational in 1999.

She is great to work with, helpful in many ways and with provide guidance in every aspect.

As for traffic to my web site, that is highly controversial now. Way back search engines were "free" and I could submit my website to many and various search engines. Search engines are no longer easy to do, yet an important aspect in order to keep your web site at the top. Hilary offers (SEO) Search Engine Optimization, so that you will show up on top.

I recommend Hilary, as she will provide excellent guidance.
Best Regards, Guardians of the Garden, Weathering All Seasons.

"We get a tremendous response to our web site and we can only thank you for really "getting" who we are here at the Adirondack Motel and responding when you created a web site that conveys our identity to potential clients. So many people who book with us, and then come to stay say that the web site interested them, and the place totally appealed to them by the tone and texture of the web site. We couldn't be happier."


Hilary has taken our vision of a website and gone beyond our expectations in every way! We have received compliments from around the world (as well as orders)! Her caring, helpful advice and wonderful customer service makes designing a website a joy! We would not be doing the level of business we are today without the professional looking website we have now! Thank you again!

"Hilary, now that we are winding down, with my web site, I want to let you know, how grateful we are to you and your company, "Rainbow Graphics", for getting our web site on the search engines, and in the top 20. "

"As you know I had designed my first web site using "Front Page". The design took me as least (6) months, then it took me the next (3) months trying to get my web site on the search engines, to no available. No matter what I did, it would not work. I finally found out that the developer had a major problems. This is when I found out about through "Rainbow Graphics". I knew, after talking with you and others, that I would have to trash the design if I wanted a web site that would be on the search engines, and seen by everyone. I also knew after talking to you that I could trust you, and with your background and references, you would do a bang up job. I must also say, not only do I have a great web site, but I have also learned enough about coding from you, that I could make any changes to my web site. I must also note, that I knew nothing about code, before I started working with you.

Thanks Hilary! Jim Boyle

"With thousands of Web page design companies to choose from, it's nearly impossible to know which one to trust. . . with the professional image you need to maintain for your organization and with your hard earned dollars.

Hilary Steidl and her team at Rainbow Graphics is a team you can rely upon to get your Web site designed quickly and professionally.

As a Web page design instructor and industry watch dog, I've reviewed the work hundreds of Web page designers and only a few produce consistent quality work that actually produces results for their clients. . . . Rainbow Graphics is one of these few.

They take the time to work with you to build your site to your specifications while still providing suggestions that will improve the performance of your site. Even more importantly, they stay with you to update your site to keep it competitive in the 'changing-by-the-hour' World of the Web.

She is very innovative and provides a good support for the novice."

Adirondack Daily Enterprise Business Profile on Rainbow Graphics

As the Internet grows and connects the World Wide Web to homes and businesses around the globe; it is interesting to note that one of the Net's premier Internet web page design firms is not metropolitan based. Rainbow Graphics, located in Saranac Lake, New York, is the recent recipient of two prestigious awards for their design work on the Internet. They have quietly built a solid reputation in the field of Web Page design and have helped to bring the Adirondacks to the world. Rainbow Graphics has grown from a small desktop publishing and printing firm to become an established leader in the ever expanding field of Internet advertising.

Owner Hilary Steidl founded Rainbow Graphics, in 1994. The business evolved from her love of the Adirondacks and her desire to live and work here; combined with her combined with her education and background in marketing and communications. Initially, her interests in computers came from a back injury that forced her to be bedridden for almost three years. What started as a laptop in her leisure time became something she wanted to pursue as a career. A graduate of New England College with two degrees in Business /Marketing and Visual Arts/Graphic Design; Hilary pursued further education at Fairfield University in the fields of Communications and Computer Desktop Publishing/Advertising. Working for several large advertising agencies and design firms provided Hilary with experience in the field; yet she wanted more.

Spending Summers on Rainbow Lake instilled in Hilary a great passion for the Adirondacks and she sought ways to gravitate north. She finally made her way to the North Country. Being a self-starter and one who believes anything is possible when you set your mind to it! She began her own Graphic and Design/Desktop Publishing business currently known as Rainbow Graphics.

DESKTOP PUBLISHING AND PRINTING

Hilary concentrated first on desktop publishing and high quality, low cost printing; Rainbow Graphics quickly attracted a devoted group of clients. Offering one on one services, with a quick turn around time, Rainbow Graphics' services included logo design, business cards, brochures, banners, signs, book, magazine and newsletter development. In fact, Rainbow Graphics has never come across a client's problem that they couldn't solve. Word of mouth advertising spread the news of her friendly approach to business and the list of clients grew, as did the success of Rainbow Graphics.

With over 14 years of experiences in graphic design, Rainbow Graphics is capable of creating any type of design from the simplest postcard to the most elaborate 4-color Presentation Folder. Rainbow Graphics uses the latest high-tech equipment to accommodate all aspects of design and printing. Because of low overhead, it offers unbeatable prices and quality work.

INTERNET ADVERTISING

Soon after her success with the desktop publishing and printing, Rainbow Graphics decided to concentrate on the relatively new field of Internet Advertising. Hilary's education, training and experience provided Rainbow Graphics with a edge in this untapped medium. Her creativity in and enthusiasm for developing Internet advertising was contagious. Clients signed on and were promptly delighted with the results. The ever expanding list of clients now compose over 400 domains on Rainbow Graphics own server called Graphic Connections combined with two other servers, is now receiving over 50,000 hits a month. Her client's include the Saranac Lake Chamber of Commerce, Rob Grant & Assoc., XTC Ranch, Tahawus, Ltd., Adirondack Sport Shop, Educational Consultants.com, Adirondacks.com, Adironndack Furniture.com, Intercounty Appraisal Services, Inc. and an extensive list of international clients. A detailed list of clients is available online at http://www.rainbow-graphics.com/rainbowclients.html

"Hilary is excellent to work with and very good in terms of concepts and execution", says Rob regarding his newly updated web site designed by Rainbow Graphics. "We've worked so closely with her in the last twelve months that we consider her to be a part of our efforts and our team. I would recommend her to any business wanting to advertise on the Internet"

The Internet has afforded both large and small businesses the opportunity to gain exposure to a world wide audience. At Rainbow Graphics, this can be accomplished at a most reasonable cost. This medium provides businesses with an alternative to traditional advertising mediums to generate exposure for their goods and services. Natalie Leduc, a licensed independent real estate agent decided to go through Rainbow Graphics to advertise her listings on the internet. "I found Hilary of Rainbow Graphics to be very cooperative, very easy to work with and most efficient"

Also pleased with Hilarys Work, Don Hoffman of Intercounty Appraisal Services says "Hilary is a wizard! I had no idea of what I wanted to advertise on the internet, or even how to get started. I gave her some promotional materials and she ran with it. I now have an extensive award winning website including an order form, of which users can fill out on their computers at home and e-mail it back to me. She is very innovative and provides a good support for the novice."

A web page is the vehicle that permits an advertiser to utilize this new information highway. The prime ingredients in the success of this vehicle are the visual impact of the page, as well as the content. More important than these aspects is the ease of access by search engines to find an individual web page. "Search engines" are electronic guides that function to locate information on the Internet. They seek out key words or phrases that match the request of the user.

" Using Keywords, selected by Rainbow Graphics, for my website address has produced 15% of our business" Says Joe. "The Internet is the most vital source I've been able to service through Hilary. Her expertise and insights into this medium have proven invaluable in terms of both exposure for Tahawus and credibility. My web page looks just as professional as those from large corporations"

Some searches can yield upwards of 10,000 to 20,000 web pages that match the topic requested. The choice of "key words" is what distinguishes an outstanding web page from an average page. This is what will get a page noticed by a search engine. Additionally, "links" are also a vital component in getting exposure for a page. "Links" are connections to pages that are topical in content or have other aspects that relate to a Home Page. A link uses key words to put a home page in contact with other pages that have similar topics or content. For example, a guide service may link to pages offering information on travel, fishing, canoeing, hiking, Adirondacks, vacations and the list goes on and on. Anyone visiting a page that is composed of a topic pertaining to a similar business can be "linked". This is beneficial to each page, as it increases the likelihood that a search can locate a "URL". URL is a Uniform Resource Locator, the address where a home page is located by a search engine.

Due to its documented expertise in this exciting new advertising medium, Rainbow Graphics can provide clients with the most current information to secure a prominent presence on the Internet.

As the burgeoning Internet advertising industry develops; problems arise. Large servers, offering discount services to maintain a web presence for businesses; are taking advantage of the uninitiated. They often maintain a web page for a variety of advertisers on their own page, instead of providing advertisers with an individual Home Page, that is apart from their own. The "Key Words", the vital element that brings users to a site; are the servers Key Words, not the advertisers. These joint advertising ventures, although seemingly inexpensive, are not as effective as maintaining a personal Home Page. This is because an advertiser can use their own "Key Words", which are much more specific to their product or service than the more generalized keywords of the large server.

Rainbow Graphics selection of vital keywords and the development of crucial links have resulted in search engines consistently locating Rainbow Graphics' clients at the top of search lists. When comparing Internet Advertising to such traditional forms as print, radio or television, it quickly becomes apparent that the individual homepages is the safest, most cost effective, and efficient method. This is because clients will only seek out a business if they are truly interested in that particular product or service. This is direct marketing at its finest, because they will only find you if they are interested in finding you. This is not a scatter gun approach but a targeted shot that is accurate to the intended audience that you should like to reach.

This advancement in communications continues to grow in leaps and bounds, as personal computers become a household item. As a recognized leader in the ever expanding field, Rainbow Graphics is positioned on the cutting edge. Their capabilities permit clients to offer products and services to a world wide audience from the comfort of their own home.
