men giving thumbs up for their web development


Nothing makes us happier than helping clients build their brand. Except for giving them a website that they’re proud of.

I’m back! What a Great Website created an amazing first site for me while in Chicago. When I moved out of state and started another business I went to a local team to do my new site and move my original site as well. What a mistake!
What a Great Website had raised my expectations so high that I thought this was how everyone operated. Not true by a longshot. I got wise and contacted What a Great Website to not only move my original site back but had them finish my second site the way I had envisioned.
Their creativity and ability to see my vision for both sites will never be taken for granted again. They are an amazing team and I would recommend them and have recommended them to anyone asking. I get compliments on both sites all the time now.
Thank you WAGW!

When I finally decided to pull the trigger to develop  a new website, my first choice was What A Great Website!  The team  —  Iris, Rickey and Steve – is smart, savvy and strategic. They created a site that accurately captured my personality and my business brand. And writer, Rickey, was able to take my pages and pages of unorganized copy and develop engaging and meaningful content that highlighted what makes my company shine! The team is fun to work with and they guided me through the process to get the site DONE.

I just want to say thank you for all you’ve done for SBAC Empower up to this point and going forward. I find your advice, ideas and work priceless. And I also want to thank you for giving me a great and hopefully easy place to start with the webpage. It was and will be beautiful thanks to you both. And the cards, and the brochure…

Thank you really isn’t enough for my gratitude. Please know, from me, it’s very, very much appreciated.

I am delighted with my new website created for me by WOW: What a great website! And that is what I’ve been hearing from my friends and acquaintances who have used it to contact me or just visited. It’s lively, colorful, eye-catching and easy to read. And, most importantly, the contact section actually works!!


I’m very happy with the job What A Great Website! has done rebuilding my website. The team was responsive, efficient, and highly collaborative. Also, as I am artist, not a tech, they were happy and quick to answer my questions in layman’s terms. Because of your marvelous website, I am getting more attention…both for speaking engagements and translating. I’m thrilled! So thanks again.

Iris was amazing when I went to her to rebrand and refresh my company and she was able to read inside my mind when I wasn’t able to express what I really wanted. Iris, Steve and Rickey just completed a new website for my company. To say I love it is an understatement! Iris got me and knew of my hesitation and my worries about putting anything out there. She worked it through with me every second of doubting if I was doing the right thing. PEMPARTIES will be a wonderful tool for me to share with my current and future clients! I will forever be recommending What a Great Website to anybody and everybody I know.

My site looks great and is easy to update. Rickey, Iris and Steve were terrific to work with – you took the time to understand my needs and developed a site to meet those needs. Steve is always very quick to answer my questions, even more than a year after the site was finished. I am a totally satisfied customer!

Iris has handled our online branding for the past few years and we couldn’t be happier. She is a treat to work with, has a great sense of style and really tries to understand and appreciate your business. We would recommend her to anyone who is looking for web design and email marketing.

The Urban Transportation Center at UIC engaged Steve Stern and Iris Marreck to work with me on re-launching the unit’s website. I can say it was a pleasure to work with these two consummate professionals. Both were very responsive to requests for revisions and status updates. Both took the time to learn and better understand what we do. I would wholeheartedly recommend this team and their new partner to help any business or organization in need of a website that will truly stand apart in today’s increasingly cluttered digital landscape.

I have been in business for 12 years. Although my branding was professionally done,  it was dated and the business had evolved to where we needed to relay a different message. I specialize in simplification of systems and organization yet the thought of re-branding was overwhelming and scary. Iris Marreck and Steven Stern made the process not only easy but exciting. They captured the essence of my company and came up with a design and website that was reflective of our message and embodied a spirit of calm and tranquility.

I have worked with Iris several times — most recently as the creator of my new website. In addition to her refreshing creativity, Iris has great business sense. She possesses the special ability to link strategic goals with state-of-the-art graphic execution. Iris is as good as it gets.

After countless meetings with web people who don’t show up….follow up…or make you want to give up….a woman appears like a mirage in a desert of disappointers…but she’s real…she is Iris Marreck. Iris and her writing partner Rickey Gold helped me create the web site my business wanted and needed!
