Our Team

Tom Watts Principal

Personally, I’ve been making websites professionally since 2013.

I’ve created and maintained hundreds of websites for clients myself and gained a ton valuable experience in the process. This experience gives Go Top Shelf an edge when it comes to new projects, as we already know how to avoid the mistakes we commonly see other agencies making.

Walking the walk is what I do when it comes to our projects, as I utilize my experience to ensure that our sites are always Top Shelf.

I’m the driving force behind our processes, and I lead the way in optimizations.

Why Choose
Go Top Shelf?

We often get asked by clients what makes us different. There are several key values we try to stick to when working on any project.

Go Top Shelf was founded by Tom Watts in 2016 after facing first-hand frustration with the local web design and development companies. The idea behind Go Top Shelf was to provide superior service, quality work and to always offer fair pricing.

We listen to our client’s needs and work with them to develop a concept. We use our talented designers to create stunning graphical representations, then ensure that our websites are developed to the highest standards by our programmers. All web projects get a manual review and quality control assessment to make sure we’re putting out the best work we possibly can.

Transparency on pricing

Our pricing directly reflects the time that will be spent to complete your project, often as a fixed fee.

A higher standard for work

A large portion of our work is fixing other local agency’s work. The state of these sites is completely unacceptable.

Brutal honesty on problems

If there’s a problem with your website, we’re going to tell you, even if it’s our fault.

We’re problem solvers

We don’t shy away from anything and are always up for a challenge. Our main goal is to make things easier for you as a business owner.
