Have you seen our new look?

Dibspacer Brandi Pierce of aShadow Design created it for us to make the site more user-friendly and to enable us to feature the latest and greatest offers.

Without going into too much detail, let me just say, Brandi is brilliant – both at design and user experience. She has also done great work for other members such as Handy Admin and 5-Star Horsemanship.

And she has some new offers up so if you’re in need of outstanding design, I highly recommend you contact her immediately.

Have a look at the new design and let me know what you think.

Update: Dibspace is back up!

Now that was exciting. I’ve never been at the center of a collapsing cloud.

Amazon seems to have fixed most of the core problems but it seems they’re still on shaky ground.

Amazon’s cloud collapse looks better in day 2, but problems continue

Uh OH! Dibspace is currently down

Amazon Web Services – our internet host – is experiencing a major outage which has websites down across the country: Amazon EC2 outage downs Reddit, Quora

It’s likely the problem will be fixed by the end of the day but so far there are no concrete estimates.

Sorry for the inconvenience!

Dibspace Top 10: Tami Aidlin – Rasterize.Us

Next up in the Dibspace Top 10 is Tami Aidlin, owner of web design company Rasterize.us.

Tami specializes in websites for small businesses and when you see her portfolio you’ll see exactly why she’s at the top. Simply put, she’s exceptionally good at what she does.

Over the years I’ve worked with many, many hundreds of small businesses and seen many hundreds of small business websites, and I can tell you that her work is some of the best I’ve seen.

If you’re not in thoroughly in love with your current website, you really should just call Tami this very instant and get yourself a website that can take your business to the next level.

You may have a bit of a wait though because, partly due to Dibspace but mostly due to her own talent, her business is in high demand:

Dibspace has helped my business grow so much that I sometimes have clients lining up to hire me! I have had the pleasure of doing some great projects with some very talented people, while expanding my clientele and portfolio.

“My experience with Dibspace has been awesome!  It’s so fun to spend Dibits on things I have a hard time spending cash on, like, housecleaning, massage and acupuncture.  My favorite experiences were finding an electrician, someone to repair my furnace and a GREAT face-painter for my daughter’s birthday party. While I didn’t know anyone that could provide these services, having a resource like Dibspace allowed me to take care of projects at a reduced cost.”

Dibspace Top 10: Susan Cook, LMP

Congratulations to Susan Cook, LMP for reaching the heights of the Dibspace Top 10.

To recap, that means she’s earned more 5-Star reviews than just about anybody in the history of Dibspace -  33 perfect 5-Star reviews, to be precise.

Finding the massage therapist who’s right for you can be challenging, but given how her clients rave about her, you can probably just end your search right now.

See for yourself what her clients say:

“Wonderful”
“This woman is magic!”
“I melted into the table.”
“I felt so good after my massage, and for the next few days.”
“Her technique is superb and she is a really fine human being”
“Susan is wonderfully gifted.”
“I’ve been to several massage therapists over the years, and she is definitely one of the best I’ve been to.”

And here’s what Susan has to say about the site that helped connect her with all those clients:

Dibspace has been great for my business. I am a small sole-proprietor with a business that works best with one-on-one referrals. Dibspace has been like a neighborhood or village fair for me.  Posting offers and dibbing the services that others have posted has enabled me get to know other small businesses and business owners in my area. Dibspace helps me meet their needs, and helps me receive services I need, while helping me market myself without impacting my cash budget.

Susan seems pretty busy these days so don’t delay in booking that appointment – and pretty soon you’ll be one happy customer.

Dibspace Top 10: Maria the Retoucher

Maria Esztergalyos – AKA Maria the Retoucher – has been with Dibspace since we just a 2-month-old startup and in that time she’s earned a total of 20 5-Star reviews!

Mightily impressive.

But more impressive is her professional portfolio.

Currently she’s fine tuning photos for celebrity, fashion, beauty, jewelry, advertising, editorial and promotional projects and working with fantastic photographers such as Andrew Stiles, Wendy Hope, Ken Dolin, Adam Hendershott, Michelle Moore Jose Mandojana and Chris Fortuna.

Here’s what she had to say about her work through Dibspace:

My experience on Dibspace has been fantastic! I’ve been able to work with and meet some incredibly talented people. Dibspace has also allowed me to work on many fun, creative projects not only using my photo retouching skills, but also my graphic design skills.

It’s great earning Dibits and using them for very important business purchases, such as my gorgeous website and also for fun purchases, such as housecleaning, food, haircuts, office organization, clothing and massage.
Maria Esztergalyos, Maria the Retoucher

Way to build a business!

Having worked with Maria on a Dibspace project, I can tell you that not only is she exceptionally talented but she’s also great to work with. The project went off perfectly and came out beautifully.

Who are the Top 10 Dibspace members of all time?

A couple of weeks ago I decided to find out who are the Top 10 Highest Rated Dibspace Members of all Time.

That is, in our two years of existence and of the thousands of transactions conducted on the site, who has consistently, time and time again, made their customers very, very happy and earned the very most full 5-Star reviews?

The results are in and to kick things off, I’m starting with Kay Rynerson of Crow’s Wing Spa.

Kay has certainly been one of our most active members, and it shows. With 26 5-Star reviews, Kay is the solidly in the top ranks.

And that’s just the reviewed transactions. Just imagine how many more happy customers there are out there. So if you’re looking for a truly wonderful spa experience, you know exactly where to go.

And what is she spending all those Dibits on? According to Kay:

“I’ve saved thousands of dollars by using Dibits to have events catered, organize my office, provide a wedding planner and flowers for my daughter’s nuptials, get massage and acupuncture, wear a Halloween costume created by a professional designer, computer expertise, graphic arts services, window cleaning and more.”

But beyond making customers happy and getting lots of great stuff, what has been the impact on her business beyond Dibspace

“My Dibspace videographer’s YouTube production and my Dibspace social media specialist’s efforts made our spa so popular that we are now booked out for weeks, some days with waiting lists!

That’s a common story among the most active members: Dibspace helps you build your business and referral base and pretty soon customers are coming at you from all corners.

Now we can’t take all the credit for their success, but we’re happy we could help.

For updates and features on the complete Top 10 check back with the Dibspace Blog or follow us on Facebook.
