Dawn is truly gold in this flashy digital world!
She responds quickly, can fix any problem, is very creative and thoughtful and you end up owning your own website! I didn’t realize it, but the last person I worked with actually owned MY WEBSITE! I was never told this, Dawn figured it out. That is one of the reasons I was getting charged $300 a year was just to “own” my website! What a scam! I’m so very very very thankful for Dawn and her skills. Do not hesitate to hire her! She truly is the BEST!
I first worked with Dawn over a decade ago when we were living in the same community. She created and maintained a few websites for me with grace, creativity, and professionalism. We both went our separate ways, she went South and I went North. In the new community I am in, I hired another web designer thinking that having one closer would be beneficial. I was wrong. The new web designer was slow to respond, made a clunky website and added in all kinds of extra charges that were never explained. In desperation I reached back out to Dawn and was so thankful that she had time to work with me again.

Working with Dawn has been a most pleasant experience!
I first contacted her after a terrible experience with my previous web developer back in April of 2019. Wow! What a difference it makes for a small business to connect with someone that knows what they are doing. Professional, competent, creative, attentive to detail, excellent communication…. She is always responsive and willing to do what it takes to get the job done right and in a timely manner. I look forward to a long lasting relationship with Dawn.

Our designer of sites and IT mentor
“Starting long ago with a renovation of our vacation rental site, Dawn has remained our designer of sites and IT mentor for well over a decade and through a variety of ongoing website and IT projects. Before finding her the IT work we needed always resulted in much unnecessary expense, confusion and frustration.
Dawn ended that on day one and is a great and valued team member who totally simplifies the IT process and intuitively knows the feel and function we need for the internet marketing and presentation part of each project.
Along with her technical expertise and on time work ethic, her input and suggestions in a wide variety of aspects of our projects has been invaluable. If you’re looking for a talented IT professional who understands budgets and timeframes and is easy to work with, you just found her.”

My Trusted Source
“Dawn built my website MarcoIslandBeachGetaway.com [in 2014] and I could not be happier. She was and still is my trusted source whenever I have questions and need something done. What I love best is she doesn’t try to “sell” you things, her approach is much more organic (and you still get results!). While working with her it is apparent that her number one priority is to create a top notch product for her client, I highly recommend Red Spiral Hand.”

She’s Just Really Dynamite
“I’ve gotten to know her through emails and correspondence over the last year or so and she’s just really dynamite. She’s got such a good head on her shoulders. She’s so much more interested in the quality of the product that she puts out and the quality of the relationship with her clients than she is with the amount that she’s charging. …Everyone that I know that has used Dawn of RedSpiralHand to create their website has been over-the-moon…and saying that about a web developer says a lot, ’cause we know that web developers, in general, can be inconsistent at times.
So, I can’t speak highly enough about Dawn and I think she’s on an amazing personal and professional journey with all of us and I love sending her business because everyone is thrilled.”

We Needed to Up Our Game
“Dawn Shears with Red Spiral Hand provided an incredible service for our business growth. We’ve been in business as a family on Anna Maria Island for over 46 years, offering gulf-front apartment and cottage short term rentals. We needed to “up our game” in terms of marketing to compete, and Dawn quickly and thoroughly assessed our website, and our overall marketing strategy and provided concrete, step-by-step directions and recommendations for us to implement. We are so thankful for the personal touch and help—a commodity in rare supply these days. Thanks from the bottom of our hearts, Dawn!”

The Best of The Bunch
“Working with Dawn Shears has been great. I found her to be technically proficient, brilliantly creative, and super passionate about the work she did for me in print, design, and website programming. Having worked with other creative developers previously, I can say without reservation she was the best of the bunch. That’s why I have hired her to work on four different projects over the last five years. If you need a developer who is extremely talented, amazingly creative, delivers on time, and really enjoys what she does, then you need to hire Dawn Shears just like I did.”
