It is hard to write a recommendation that will properly capture my enthusiasm for working with Francoise. 5 Stars. On time, within the budget, and with all the bells and whistles we asked for. That’s the service we received from Francoise and Elephant. What a nightmare we threw at her! We brought together 4 distinct sites combining our two magazines, the Shambhala Sun and Bhuddhadharma, under one new brand LionsRoar.com.

We knew that migrating over 7000 articles from various ancient CMS platforms to Wordpress would be a big project full of unknowns. We were also concerned about losing our strong Google ranking when switching to a new URL. Not only did we not suffer any decreases in traffic, but we increased unique users by over 50% in the first month. Our page views increased by a whopping 80%. Francoise provided us with impeccable project management. Her knowledge of UX and usability is definitely cutting edge and we achieved the results we were after. We couldn’t be happier with the project and in fact our sister organization is beginning the same process of migrating to Wordpress.
