What People Are Saying about The Tektite Group


“Although I considered myself tech-literate, for some reason I was having a block when it came to starting a blog – I was starting a new profession of teaching yoga, and needed help getting the word out.  I set an appointment with Jean because I knew she had various programs for teaching the use of social media.

Jean walked me through the process of setting up a blog step by step, not just in a bookish, theoretical way, but actually signing up for and creating a blog in real time as we sat there.  By the end of our hour appointment I had my own blog – michaelschicagoyoga.com – and seven months later have made my 100th post!

Jean has a practical knowledge of the often complex tech and social media world.  Rather than throw out big ideas and vague instructions, Jean will help you with the practicalities and logistics of working with social media – here’s what you do and how you do it.  A “let’s get it done” approach.  I appreciated that I not only learned blogging from Jean, but that she set me up with the tools to actually do it.  I would heartily recommend her for any social media project your business may have.

‘Just attended Jean’s website development workshop and what a great workshop it was. Hands on training got us going right away. Jean knows her stuff when it comes to wikis and how they are perfect for the entrepreneur or any company that wants flexibility in their web content without the high cost or hassle. She showed us how the wiki can keep your web site current and dynamic in today’s ever changing environment. I must admit, I have now been convinced to use wiki for my web site instead of the static HTML coded traditional method.”

Jean Pickering of The Tektite Group, did QA for us when my startup launched. Her quick understanding of my vision melded with her amazing attention to detail provided great value to our launch. She caught things that we wouldn’t have seen for months and helped guide us to provide a more user-friendly website.

Jean and The Tektite Group put a wonderful site together for me very quickly! It was important for me to know how to maintain it myself, and the training I received was easy to understand. Plus, between the SEO and some helpful tips to boost my site ranking, I immediately got more hits per day than on my old site!
