Kevin Robson realizes how the Internet has opened up tremendous opportunities and endless possibilities for businesses. Since opening his web hosting and design firm, BusinessMasters.Net, in 1995, he has helped create web sites for more than 100 companies throughout the United States and far away as Australia.
These web sites represent a company’s identity on the Internet, and the impression it conveys holds the visitor’s attention and makes them come back time and time again. Therefore, Kevin prides himself in creating sites that are precise, visually captivating and conceptually sound. That’s why BusinessMasters.Net has earned quite a reputation among its many clients, which range from hotels, chambers of commerce, restaurants and travel agencies.
“Most of the web designs we do are geared toward marketing and advertising, although some for customer support, membership management systems and employee education,” Kevin said. “The best part about the job is meeting people in a wide variety of fields. I love learning about their businesses. A few weeks ago I visited a client in Miami and had an opportunity to ride on a tugboat and barge. Then I visited another client later that day and found myself riding in a helicopter. Learning how a business ticks is cool stuff to me.”
As a testament to his hard work and professionalism, Kevin has received numerous accolades throughout the years, including the Leesburg Area Chamber of Commerce Business Person of the Month in 1995 and the 1999 Sam Walton Business Leader Award. But his proudest accomplishment as a professional occurred in March 2005. That’s when he learned that Time Magazine chose one of his company’s websites, Mrsfixit.com, as its Web Site of Choice. The site has also been recognized in numerous other magazines, including Woman’s Day.
“It’s quite an honor that a nationally known magazine like Time would recognize our work,” Kevin said. “I was ecstatic when I found out about it.”
“Mrs. Fixit” is actually Terri McGraw of Syracuse, N.Y. who has a syndicated column and makes regular television appearances giving women tips about do-it-yourself home repairs. BusinessMasters.Net created her site with an online shopping store, a comprehensive question and answer section and sample videos that show her doing repairs. There’s also a FIXIT quick find, where users can click on a particularly category, such as “holiday ideas” or “kitchen tips,” and instantly learn about Terri’s recommendations.
“There are not too many businesses these days that I feel are into customer satisfaction and actually follow through,” Terri said. “Many businesses have a tendency to over promise and under deliver. I can’t say that for BusinessMasters.Net. They have been a pleasure and terrific to work with. They have gone above and beyond the call of duty and have never let me down.”
