Results in the Revamp
“We have been overwhelmingly pleased with the results of our website revamp. Not only did it turn out better than expected aesthetically, but the results have been mind-blowing. In a little over a year we were able to increase monthly web traffic 300%+ and show up on first page of Google organically. The Wordpress design and the SEO revamp has produced tremendous results. We would recommend anyone looking for better results to hire MariaVida to gain market share and produce results!!”

Praise for MariaVida Creative
Maria is a consummate professional and creative soul – a rare gem to find. Her focus on understanding what a client needs, her playful approach to design, her attention to detail makes her a joy to work with. I have been using her graphic and web design services for over ten years and am thrilled with the results.
I am so thankful to have found MariaVida to design my website. I did not know where to begin because I wanted a simple user friendly design. She is very creative and has intuition and knows exactly how to format the material. Her web design is so inviting and is easy for people to use. Her expertise has helped my non-profit thrive.
MariaVida is a stellar and extremely high quality web design and development company. Owner Maria Alcoke spends a great deal of time listening to her clients and understanding their vision to get inspiration, before creating a timeline and organized itinerary. She took my old website with its outdated graphics and fonts, and an archaic and cumbersome template, and transformed it into a modernized, elegant and user-friendly site. Maria is extremely creative, visually savvy, and is a genius at utilizing space, while always keeping the aesthetics beautiful and uncluttered. Most of all she is organized, trustworthy, swift, and always delivers a superb finished product. Maria is an absolute pleasure to work with, and I will never look elsewhere for my website and graphic design needs! Bravo MariaVida!
“You truly need to look no further than Maria Alcoke and Maria Vida Creative for all of your website and branding needs. When I came to Maria, I was clueless about web design and branding. I was opening my own law practice without any idea as to what I wanted for my website or logos. Maria took the time to talk with me and truly listen in order to cultivate my vision. She promptly delivered brilliant logo options for me to choose from. I was kept informed as to the timeline for the launch of my website and Maria was right on schedule. Throughout the process, Maria was responsive to my questions and always had creative ideas at the ready. I could not have been happier with my logos and website. My law firm website is professional, nice to look at, and reflects exactly what I envisioned. Once my website and logos were completed, Maria and I have stayed in touch, updating and maintaining the website and working on SEO. She is excellent at what she does, and she has connections and contacts in the business if I have a question that is outside her area of expertise. You can tall Maria truly loves what she does – it is reflected in her work, every time. I highly recommend Maria Alcoke and Maria Vida Creative!
