For over 15 years Lynne Robson has been providing small businesses around the world with the tools to create and develop their virtual locations. As The Theme Weaver, Lynne developed exclusively for Microsoft products till a change in both life and in the internet prompted her to reevaluate the services she was offering and so in 2009, A Crazy Chameleon was born.
Crazy Chameleon takes a very non virtual approach to developing your online presence or as Lynne prefers to call it, “Your Virtual Location”, and sees herself no different than the general contractor you would hire to build your storefront, or office space. By visualizing your website in non virtual terms, Crazy Chameleon is a “Virtual General Contractor”, pulling together a team of professionals such as copywriters, photographers, virtual assistants and graphic designers to construct not just your website, but your virtual location.
While design and development are her passion, educating businesses on the importance of a well constructed website is the secret of her success. By showing new businesses how to get online right the first time, helping existing businesses reevaluate and upgrade their vintage websites, and by just being there to pick up the pieces when a client has taken the wrong path in their online development choices, Lynne proves that not all web designers are built from the same mold.
“I believe a hug is better than a handshake, and a phone call is better than an email.” In a world where most use email to communicate, Lynne feels it is important to work offline when it comes to supporting her clients. A quick coffee is preferred, a phone call if the distance is too large. “After spending 10 years working behind a computer with very little human contact, I realized that what was missing most in my business was the touchy feelie aspect of a non virtual business. So when I remodeled my business I knew I had to add that back into it. I spend a lot of time with my clients, both in person and over the phone, and I would have it no other way.”
