Disney’s Approach to Leadership Excellence

Jim Gerland

Eric’s a very bright and forward thinking “geek”. He was always open to questions and he always responded with unique and efficient ways to solve a problem or implement the solutions. Eric has grown in his professional career and his success is proof that he has always been able to accomplish any task he took on. It was a pleasure working with Eric and I would welcome any opportunity to work with him again. I would recommend Eric to any organization that was looking for a passionate and dedicated professional for their team.

Each time I’ve engaged Eric for a PHP/MySQL driven project, I’ve been thrilled with the results. His code is fantastic and well documented, and his demeanor is such that you don’t feel as though you’re working with a programmer, but more a problem solver.

If your web project needs custom PHP code, I strongly suggest you have Eric quote it. While you might find cheaper labor available, I promise you the results that Eric gives you will far surpass any “value” you see in spending a few dollars less per hour.

I don’t even quote jobs anymore. I just send them to Eric.

Eric’s site review for us was thoughtful, analytical, and brutal. He’s not afraid to pull any punches. Merchants need a good set of marketing eyes with relevant e-commerce experience to give them useful feedback about what works and what is not working on their site. Eric can give you this type of advice, and he does it quickly and efficiently. Two thumbs up!

Sunshine Rewards

Tricia Meyer

I really, truly appreciate the time that you spent doing this. And I have to say that I don’t disagree with a single thing in the review. Some of it is stuff we have talked about changing before and some of it made us say “How did we miss this before? That would definitely help!” Hopefully in the coming months we will be releasing a highly improved Sunshine Rewards thanks to your help!!!!

I am not new to building sites and doing SEO for my sites, but when I asked you for help, I was expecting a canned response that you would usually expect from SEO companies. ie. change your title, add keywords, optimize your urls for keywords etc. duh! But when I got my email from you, it was more detailed and advanced than I expected. You pointed out things I could do with my site that I would not have ever thought of. Thanks for your help.

Let's keep in touch
