& Social Media Specialist
"The Wix Doctor" is the alter ego of Lynn Ciecierski, a full-service marketing expert, web development, and design professional. I got my start in the early days of e-commerce, when Priceline was the newest kid on the block — and blowing everyone's mind. I worked for a sister company of that brand, and received a top-notch education in developing an e-commerce website, creating banner ads, building online networks and affiliate relationships, as well as supplementing digital ads with print marketing and press relations.

Back then, an e-commerce site was not for the faint of heart, and would run a company upwards of $100K upfront to create and launch, plus thousands of dollars every month to host. Nowadays, website creation tools like Wix, Wordpress, Square, and Shopify have made e-commerce and web hosting much more accessible and affordable for the small business owner, and many DIYers are able to launch a new website for their business, non-profit, club or blog.
Trying to do everything yourself?
Website creation tools often start out as exciting and empowering, but can become huge time and money sucks due to the fact that many users get caught up on the details, without designing for an end goal. In Business News Daily's 20 Mistakes to Avoid When Starting a Business, "Don't try to do everything yourself" is in 6th place above, "Don't waste money." Considering that TIME IS MONEY, how much are you wasting trying to figure out website creation software and graphic editing tools, blog writing, email marketing platforms, social media, copywriting for SEO, testing, branding, creating affiliate relationships, and measuring data — just so you can go back and redesign, rewrite, and repost those elements that aren't filling your leads funnel?
Every small business owner eventually hits the "doing everything yourself" wall. You know you need a Marketing Director, Email Marketing Manager, and Social Media Specialist, but may not have the budget for 3 extra full-time employees.
With The Wix Doctor, you get 20 years of experience from a design and marketing professional who can wear all these hats without any long-term commitments. Purchase a block of time, get a quote for a specific project, or subscribe to one of my ongoing, monthly plans to save money and receive consistent support.
I don't just create Shopify and Wix websites; I develop digital marketing tools that help clients reach specific goals. Good design and branding are only valuable if they are working for you. If not, it's time to re-evaluate.
I call myself the "Wix Doctor," because my methods for embarking on a new website, email campaign, or copywriting project are diagnostic. I collect the What (i.e. who are your competitors/customers, what are the industry trends), Why (i.e. sales spikes and dips, website traffic, events), and What Ifs (i.e. how will a redesign improve customer retention rates, what if I boost social media posts).
The Wix Doctor "Success Sessions" are virtual house calls with screen sharing, so users can learn something new, identify opportunities, and prevent problems within their web design and/or email marketing products. I help you get past the frustration of describing and resolving issues via chats, forums, and customer service lines — saving you and your business time and money.
I am based in New Haven, Connecticut — home of Yale University and the Best Pizza on the planet (I am a Modern Apizza loyalist— with Eastern Standard Time (EST) office hours Monday - Saturday. I love working with clients worldwide, and mostly serve the United States and Canada.

I'm not happy until my clients are satisfied with my work, or feel confident following our Zoom tutorials. Throughout the years, my professional experience has been an opportunity to expand my knowledge of digital and print marketing, and has greatly contributed to the Web Developer, Marketing Consultant and SEO expert I am today.
