BYOBWebsite is one of the few educational resources available to help take your design projects to the next level. Rick's knowledge, skills, and--particularly--patience make both the recorded and live sessions entertaining and informative. The site is a goldmine of practical techniques and best practices that are nothing less than a roadmap to success. Highly recommended!

Hands Up! Marketing
I'm writing to tell you how pleased I am with your website and service.  All too often, companies promise more than they can deliver and their services are a disappointment.  BYOB Website, on the other hand, has significantly delivered exceptional value.  The training videos are clear and well organized.  You respond quickly and helpfully to forum questions.  With your help, I've moved from a beginner (never having used WordPress before) to an intermediate user with the ability to pretty much do whatever I need.  It is the best $139 I have ever spent and I'm now regretting that I didn't sign up for the full 1-year package.  I've recommended your service to my friends and encouraged them to do just that.

I just wanted to say "thanks" for an excellent membership service and for all of your help now and in the future.

Just wanted to thank-you again for all your help, and to share some good news. The first of the month I had a wholesale purchase of 2,000 books!  I did a seminar and a webcast.  I wrote articles for local and national newsletters and magazines.  During the year, I gave over 3,000 of them away at IRS and Oklahoma Tax Commission seminars, and gambling trade shows. Needless to say, I think my little booklet is picking up speed.

2012 promises to be an even more exciting year! Again, thank-you for all your help.

Thanks so much for the wealth of information on the site.  I have already learned more in 5 days from you than I have learned in 2 years trying to teach myself.



Rick - you're emergency search and rescue is just what the doctor ordered! In under a half hour you were able to have my e-commerce website back up and running. In under 2 hours total, you were fully able to resolve the issue plus do some back of house cleaning to the files.

Your service saved me hundreds of dollars because within a couple of hours of being back online, I had three new orders come in, business I may have lost had it not been for your quick and efficient response. Thanks so much again Rick, your service is awesome!"

Rick, Thank you so much. I was feeling completely hopeless. My e-commerce site had a unfixable bug. I'd lost days of production time scouring the DIYthemes forums, Wordpress forums and trying to get my SP's tech support to help – no one could provide a solution to the "insufficient permissions" errors that I was getting. You took it upon yourself to reinstall WP and Thesis w/o losing any of my information and fixed my site!

You're the best. I look forward to doing the Membership site next. I've learned a ton in the past few months since I've joined your site.

You have done a fantastic job augmenting the site and giving us members even more bang for the buck. Your video series has been invaluable and has greatly contributed to my creating a couple of websites (the second is about 80% there). You are my go-to-source when I am stumped. Just love the visual approach -- it suits my learning style.

avatarHey, I went ahead and joined and it was already worth every penny!!! I have been considering double nav menus to tie my sites together but I had been putting it off because I didn't have time to figure it all out. Your nav menu plugin was EXACTLY what I needed without all the headaches. I already have plans for several of the other plugins, too. Your tutorials make everything clear and easy. Thank you so much!

Rick Anderson… is the man… if you are looking for help customising your thesis theme look no further… invest … beacuse its such a small amount for an enormous return… and you know what you don't have to hang about….Ask and Rick comes back with an answer… and expands your understanding…. I cannot speak highly enough of what an enormous help Roik has been in helping me develop my website…..

I have been struggling along at a snail's pace, trying to learn how to use Thesis. I found the help I got from Thesis tech support and their forums wasn't as helpful as I hoped for. And then I discovered

Rick Andersdon has proven himself to be a God-send. Not only is he a veritable expert in "All things Thesis", but he is all too willing to help with my questions – usually going 'above and beyond' what's asked of him. And his support has been very timely, in deed; I usually hear from him the same day, if not within a matter of an hour or so.

I would highly recommend Rick's service to anyone who 1) is serious about building not just a professional WP-based site that looks nice, but one that is also effectively optimized to bring your company new business (and not just be another "virtual business card" lost in CyberSpace); 2) has been frustrated in their attempt to learn how to do so using the Thesis WP theme (arguably the best vehicle for accomplishing the 1st objective); and, 3) does not want to waste a lot of time and/or spend a lot of money doing so.
