Recommendations

"James is the most savvy marketer I have ever met. He is a genius for sales, and is a human dictionary on Pay Per Click and Search Engine Optimization. James is also one of my favorite people to work with; he's very easy to get along with, makes his employees and their families a top priority, and is unflinchingly honest. I can't recommend him more highly."

Shane Snow

Cofounder at Contently, Author of Smartcuts, Journalist

"I've worked with James on a smaller scale & have continued to come back to him for some additional advice on some of my marketing projects. Each time, he's been extremely helpful & overall a great person to work with!"

BJ Wright

Entrepreneur

"James was amazing to work with. I generally hesitate contracting out such important work, but he made me feel comfortable. He took the time to develop a great understanding of what we needed to accomplish. He was results oriented and never disappointed me. I would absolutely recommended hiring him for your project."

Dusty Rhoades

MBA, CSPO

"[...] Technical concepts, how they can apply to business and can be leveraged to provide a profit, just made sense to James. In a professional setting, I realized that James excels at teaching himself what he needs to accomplish his vision and/or finding and surrounding himself with knowledgeable people that provide expertise he may lack."
