about us

Making Waves Web Design is a small web design company focused on local search for the restaurant industry.

Located in Richfield, Wisconsin (home to the beautiful Holy Hill Church) we're small enough to form a one-on-one relationship and true partnership with you yet large enough to deliver the quality products and services you'd expect from a large agency -- without the large price tag.

We love to work with restaurants and other local businesses to help them reach their goals.

Tammy Poppie

Making Waves Web Design Founder

Years ago I set out to build a website to promote a business. I quickly learned I did not have the skills or time to build a website much less learn about and create a local search strategy.

This whole process of trying to figure out how to build my online presence opened a whole new world for me. I became obsessed. So, I literally quit my job, went back to school and started a web design business. It wasn't easy but well worth it.

As a business owner that's been there I understand how it feels to dive into the world of websites, social media and search engines. It's one rabbit hole after another. It's overwhelming and takes you away from running your business. I used this experience to drive the mission of my business.

Now, I wake up every day eager to create highly effective websites and local search strategies for businesses that want to grow. There is no greater reward than knowing I have helped a business achieve their goals.
