Complete Online Solutions with Rogue Web Works

Rogue-Web-WorksLast spring the Sneak Preview had our website (SneakPre.com) completely revamped. At first we thought it was going to be a daunting process, but thanks to Rogue Web Works, it was a stress-free overhaul, and the site was up and running in no time.

Rogue Web Works is a full-service web design, development, hosting, maintenance and consulting company which has been located in the Rogue Valley since 2006. Owners Eric and Robin Gotfrid have diverse and complementary backgrounds. Eric's includes running technology companies and computer consulting while Robin has a fine art degree plus over 15 years of experience in web design and development. In addition, Eric brings to every project his 20+ years of being an entrepreneur and helping launch numerous businesses, providing well-rounded and cost-effective solutions for their clients.

"While on a camping trip in the region in 2005, we drove through the Rogue Valley and knew immediately that it was our next home," Eric said. "We started planning our escape from California immediately and moved here from Half Moon Bay. We love the community and the people and have never looked back or doubted our decision."

Eric began working with computers in the late 1980s, and in 1995 co-founded Coastside Net, a regional internet service provider in Half Moon Bay, with three partners. In 2006 he sold out but kept the website hosting business. Robin began designing and developing websites under the guidance of an SEO expert in the late 1990s while also attending college, studying Art with a Digital Graphics Option. In 2000, with her fine arts degree in hand, she started her own business, Coastal Graphix.

"Our diverse experience and backgrounds provide a unique suite of services to our clients," Eric said. "We provide complete online solutions. We register and manage domains, provide e-mail with world-class spam protection, and work alongside our clients from concept to design to launch of their website. But we don't stop there; we continue to support our clients' online presence indefinitely. We work on traditional websites as well as content management systems including the popular WordPress and Joomla platforms."

Their clients can expect personalized service. "We communicate in plain language. Our goal for every interaction is to educate and support our clients. We answer the phone, we answer e-mail promptly, and Eric makes himself available via Skype and messaging services much of the time to be even more accessible."

Rogue Web Works also handles website maintenance, e-mail marketing support and social media support. To help keep content up to date, they have a low minimum charge. "We are happy to do a half-hour of work anytime," Eric said. "We do it quickly and accurately so your site's content is always fresh."
