About Refreshingly Simple Sites

From the family-based team behind OTL Seat Fillers & City Guides.

Hi! I’m Lu, and I am happy to introduce a “keeping things simple” approach to an online presence with WordPress websites, content writing, content marketing, and other a la carte services for entrepreneurs and small businesses.

We aren’t Millennials or Gen Xers born into the digital age. Learning about WordPress, content marketing, uploading, and SEO was difficult. When we built, we wished for a cost-effective go-to expert who wouldn’t just do the work for us but help us to be self-sufficient.

Unfortunately, we didn’t get the genie out of the bottle to grant that wish. But now that we’ve got a few dozen websites under our belt and have written and edited content for various organizations, we want to be that go-to for you!
