I HIGHLY recommend Pam Blankenzee and RDZigns for any website needs your company is considering. As the Immediate Past District Governor of Rotary District 5870 in Central Texas (Austin-Waco and surrounding counties and towns), I depended solely on Pam for all our website development and maintenance, and also for our major on-line communications. Even given the challenges our organization presents to our vendors (our district leadership changes every July 1), Pam has kept an evolutionary continuity that has served us well. In fact, out Public Relations team has won national Rotary International Zone awards for PR excellence, in a large part due to Pam's creativity.
I have worked with Pam Blankenzee since May 2017. During that time I have found her to be very helpful and responsive in meeting my website design and maintenance needs. I inherited an outdated and poorly functioning website for a nonprofit organization I worked with in 2017. I recognized several problems with the website, but did not have any idea on what was needed to fix it. At my request, Pam jumped right in and completely redesigned and rebuilt the website in just a few short weeks. Thereafter, she performed ongoing maintenance. I’ve come to understand Pam is the kind of person who proactively cares for anything she undertakes. She quickly became a valuable member of my management team, whose expertise and work ethic far exceeded my expectations.
RDZigns and Pam Blankenzee has worked with me in the past and helped me develop my business. Pam worked with me to develop my website, which I consider to be the best on the web in my industry. Pam also keeps me advised about the activities at my website. Pam also maintains the Rotary District 5870 Monthly Newsletter and does a great job keeping everyone informed about the activities at the District and Club level. I recommend Pam and RDZigns.
Pam has been providing web services for our Rotary Club of Austin-Southwest for about 8 months and it has been an absolute joy to work with her! She is professional, cooperative and actively participates in improving the club’s online and social image. She is an expert in Windows, ClubRunner and all associated web and online applications. No matter what we asked for in our total website re-design and Facebook page, she made it happen – it was up and working almost immediately.
As District Governor for Rotary District 5870 I have worked extensively with Pam Blankenzee. She is our District’s webmaster charged with keeping our website up to date. Pam did a wonderful job in creatively keeping our website updated so our members would be kept abreast of all things going on in our district. Every time I asked her to do something, she did it immediately and efficiently. There are so many other things I could talk about but suffice it to say her ability in Public Relations, social media and website management is unparalled. I can highly recommend her services for whatever is required in these areas.
I’ve been working with Pam for 7 years now and cannot recommend her services highly enough! I’ve worked directly with her on website creation & maintenance, social media presence and countless marketing campaigns. Not only is she a truly knowable professional, but she is also easy and fun to work with. I can pick up the phone anytime and call her directly… and if she doesn’t know how to implement my hairbrained idea right away she is not afraid to figure it out! A true partner for all of my online needs.
Over the years, I have had the opportunity to work closely with many creative designers. As Advertising & Promotion Manager at Disneyland, Director of Marketing for Universal Studios Recreation Division, and as Senior Vice President-Market & Communications for Playboy Enterprises, Inc., I had graphic design departments reporting to me. The best designers are those who don’t let design overpower communication; understand that graphic design is a collaborative craft; and focus on combining their creativity with the clients’ needs — that’s what makes Pam Blankenzee and RDzigns such a pleasure to work with, and such an important contributor to the projects we worked on together. I would never hesitate to involve her in any project where creativity, focus on communication, and professionalism in all areas, are required.
Pam is diligent, adheres to timelines, is creative, and accurately recognizes your needs and creates great content that is original and timely. She is responsive to questions and suggestions and will provide you with best practices. Pam is incredible to work with.
Pam Blankenzee has served as our webmaster for Rotary District 5810 got the last three years. She has kept our district news up -to-date and encourages clubs to share people of action shots. Pam cares so much for our site to have relevant and current information, that she has gone to individual club websites so she can feature pictures and club accomplishments across the District. Pam has upgraded our social media pages to be informative, eye- catching and relevant. Her creative ideas are clever and add to our fun way of presenting information.
We have worked with Pam Blankenzee & RDZigns for several years, on more than one website rebuild. One of the chronic problems that we – and many of our colleagues – have had to deal with in the past has been unresponsiveness from web developers and service providers. This was NEVER the case with Pam. If we had a problem, or needed immediate help, she got back to us quickly and effectively. She is very smart and has a strong grasp of all aspects of web design and development. She also has a deep bench of resources from which to draw for creative solutions to a variety of challenges and opportunities. We would recommend Pam and her company whole-heartedly for any web project.
