“James and the boys at Flooid Design did a complete site skin for me. I didn’t have any real sense of what I wanted or needed, so that made me an absolute nightmare of a client. As we went through the process I kept sending them to sites and saying “I want the opposite of this”, which is incredibly NOT HELPFUL if you’re a site designer. My expectation was that I’d end up with a few site designs that I didn’t like, or that didn’t work particularly well, and then we’d hammer out the details. James and his team came up with a fabulous design the first time, implemented it and then tweaked it over the next few weeks. I couldn’t be happier. I have a fast running, streamlined site that people are enjoying, and I was able to trust James with my personal branding. Which is all I have. I’d recommend him to anyone without hesitation.”

“There’s no other way to put it except I wouldn’t be where I am today without James. Starting with a small blog to creating a full blown website. James has gone above and beyond his duty. He has such an amazing grasp of Social Media it’s almost unfair. From Facebook to Twitter, Linkedin to Posterous James knows how to cover all the angles and always makes sure you are using proper etiquette. He doesn’t just do the work for you, he teaches you how to set up and maintain your accounts and how to keep everything looking as professional as possible. Because of James, I truly feel confident about my social media capabilities. If you are looking for someone to take you to the next level, don’t waste any more time, James is your man.”

“If you are slammed and want someone to OWN the development of your blog and want to make sure it’s on the cutting edge in terms of tools / apps, go with James Poling. Follow him on twitter to see what I mean. He created FredSpot.com for Fred. I have been around the Internet since ‘93 in San Francsico where I founded an ad agency and worked on some of the most cutting-edge programs on the Internet [CDNOW, Amazon, Excite, Yahoo! to name a few]. All of the rest of the words I could write about James would just be wasting pixels.”
—Adam Gayner, CEO & friend of Fred
“I managed a blog that had not been maintained in several years and James was able to not only update the existing platform but also he recommended a new platform and seamlessly moved everything over. I highly recommend James for demanding and mission-critical web projects as he is cool under pressure and delivers results exactly as desired.”
—Nick Russell, Agenda Inc.
“James is a standout in the new media of social networking and online communities, and the creation, development, and nurturing of highly trafficked websites. I’ve collaborated with James many times in the past, and look forward to doing so many times again.”
—Jake Clark, Interactive Creative Director, Tween Brands Inc.
“James has the uncanny ability to quickly identify his target audience and then build interactive solutions to meet their needs. His expert knowledge of building online communities such as blogs, discussion forums, and portals makes him a tremendous asset to any company that is looking to build a demand gen environment that nutures relationships with its market. James is a pleasure to work with and I highly recommend his work.”
—Elizabeth Lupfer, Senior Manager, Interactive Media and Design at Verizon Business
“James worked to make my blog not only good…but GREAT. Due to his recommendations and flair for understanding a design that was uniquely suited for me (versus a template design), I’ve increased my audience and had a slew of compliments on the upgrade. I’ll no doubt be retaining him again for many more projects.”
