Neither Sylvia or ourselves can remember exactly how our paths crossed some fifteen years ago. For Prairie Brae Miniature Donkeys it has been our most beneficial marketing tool. Sylvia's business at that time was Pondside Web Productions, which has since evolved to become "Pondside Digital Media".
The creation and on going development of our website was principally due to Sylvia's experience, and attests to the patience she has demonstrated through the years. I had token technological savvy. She and Cody have remarkable work ethics. Updates and changes to the website are done within hours which can be a very important part of marketing. The tardiness was always on my part!!
Over the years we were always pleased, and with an element of surprise to receive inquiries for Miniature Donkeys from as far away as Ireland, the United Kingdom, Australia, Georgia and actually from states too numerous to mention. Many of these inquiries resulted in sales. We are assured it was Sylvia's knowledge of search engines and the technology behind the scene that brought Prairie Brae.com to the forefront for those customers searching.
Costs are very reasonable and the service is exemplary. I have and will continue to recommend Sylvia, Cody, and Pondside Digital Media even though our years of marketing Miniature Donkeys has concluded.
It was a sad day to see our website expire.
Thank You for your years of service.

When we decided to redo our website we wanted to go with a local web designer. Our previous experience trying to work with a large web designing company proved to be very disappointing with long wait times, 1 800 numbers, and a different contact each time we called.
Working with Pondside Digital Media has been a dream. Sylvia and Cody truly care about our business and have designed a website that is organized, well written, and attractive. Since Pondside Digital Media redesigned our website our sales have noticeably increased and our ranking on Google has significantly improved as well.
Pondside Digital Media operates their web development company with absolute integrity and we have the utmost respect for them as both a business and as people.
I just wanted to take a few minutes to let you know how much I have appreciated working with Pondside Digital Media. As a volunteer-mom with a non-profit sports club, I found myself wearing many hats within the organization. One of the roles that I was tasked with for the season was "Website Coordinator" which is quite amusing because I am very technologically challenged (which my 10 year old can attest to!!)
Working with Pondside was a dream for someone like me. They were extremely helpful and diligent in every task that we worked on. They took our old and outdated website and turned it into a fully functional and user-friendly website in no time at all. Sylvia and Cody were very mindful of our budget and always worked within it. Throughout the season, they were very pleasant and helpful. They were always available to make any little changes that were required as our club evolved and always provided us with new ideas on how better to manage the site.
I have no hesitation in recommending Pondside Digital Media to anyone who is looking for a new website, or to update an existing website. Especially if you are clueless like me! Pondside will ensure that you understand all that you need to so you can manage your site.
Thanks Cody and Sylvia! I have appreciated you both so much!

Through our association with Pondside, we have developed two websites as we have sophisticated our service and image to our membership. In each case we have found the Pondside team to be courteous, and responsive to our needs and vision. In the most recent “roll out” of the product, we worked very closely, and Pondside lead us through the technology that would serve us best in relation to our needs, and has provided excellent training to allow us to monitor ourselves.
The relationship we have with Pondside Digital Media has been one of positive energy and mutual respect. We very much appreciate the assistance in reaching our goals!

To Whom it May Concern;
The County Clothes-Line Foundation is a non-profit thrift shop operating in Sherwood Park since 1984. To keep up with changing times our Board decided that a web-site would be a great way to inform and advertise our services to the community at large.
Therefore, in 2004, we accepted a proposal from Pondside Web Productions to design a web site and handle the annual advertising for our organization. I dealt directly with Sylvia on the design of the site and was pleased with her readiness to incorporate my ideas and suggestions in the overall appearance and content of the website. With her professional guidance, an informative, colourful and user friendly site was established, that has received positive feedback from our customers and clients.
We have worked with Pondside [since 2004] and I can definitely recommend Sylvia and her team. She always appreciates the client’s input, her professional attitude and experience is obvious from the quality advertisements that she places in the local press for us and she makes herself available on short notice for any questions or concerns that may arise.
The Board and I are pleased with our continuing association with Pondside Web Productions and definitely recommend this business to others.

To whom it may concern,
We have dealt with Pondside Web Productions for a number of years.
Sylvia helped us set up our first web site, and has revised it several times for us. We now have a second web site with another company I own. It has been very successful for us, and has attracted a lot of business from many different clients worldwide. We always seem to be quite high on the search engine lists.
Pondside has always been professional, punctual, and very reasonable in their pricing. Sylvia is always offering up very useful suggestions for changes to our site, and her work for us has been painless for me. She has seemed to understand our needs with very little coaching at all.

To whom it may concern,
I have nothing but good to say about Pondside Web Productions. Sylvia designed our site several years ago and captured exactly what we are all about. Her sensitivity to our needs and timely changes has greatly contributed to the success of our site. Her prices are very reasonable and services are prompt. Sylvia and her staff pay attention to the details and it has been a pleasure to work with them. I would recommend Pondside Web Productions to anyone looking for site construction or maintenance.
