Keenan sites not only helped me start my online fitness business but really helped me to grow it! Wayne has an amazing talent in not only building sites but in design as he also helped me with my business logo design. I am very happy with my site design and capabilities. Wayne is also very affordable and was time-efficient in completing my website.

"I am so grateful to have found Keenan Sites to build my website. Unfortunately I had to go through two different web designers prior to finding Wayne. In my first two experiences I was left with an unfinished product, felt cheated, and lied to. I didn't trust that someone could ever complete my complex vision, but Wayne changed all of that. I gave him my vision and he executed to the fullest. Throughout the entirety of the site building process he took initiative, he implemented creative ideas that added to the site, he found solutions to any glitches, repeatedly tested for bugs, and produced an amazing website. He is someone you can trust to do the work and to do it right."
Erica Hiester, Owner of Gen.G Music
"We at Elements for Design have been extremely satisfied with our services through Keenan Sites. Wayne helped us design and implement a site that we felt met the needs for our customers as well as our own. With the tools Wayne provided us, we are able to modify the content on the site which has been a great help, and it's easy enough we can do. We have never had an outage of the website as well! Thanks for all your work Wayne!"
Kevin Wood, Owner of Elements For Design
"The Hosting program of Keenan Websites seems fair, and has worked for me for several years. Keenan Sites is extremely helpful and CPanel allows easy access – to add/edit content, and keep your web pages fresh and effective. Using Google Analytics is yet another marketing advantage. I have one site for mystery novels and another for horse business. Lane Manning , author/cowboy"
