    Great experience on tough project
    John did a great job on an admittedly difficult project. We were developing a web app for a client and needed the front end to be sleek - my team would be doing the back end development. John did a great job accommodating multiple revision requests from the client that really helped my team focus, and even provided guidance on how to integrate and develop some the back end functionalities. Both me and the client team has been thrilled with what John developed.

    John was fantastic! We discovered that there were some security issues that needed to be resolved with our existing website. John was able to quickly find and resolve the issues for a very reasonable rate. He had experience dealing with security issues on other websites and knew what to look for. John was upfront with the costs that could potentially be involved in restoring our site based off of similar issues he had resolved in the past. He gave me a best case minimum and a worst case possibility. Luckily ours was slightly more than the best case minimum. We appreciated his honestly and the time frame he was able to complete the task within. He kept us updated on his findings and his progress. We plan to have him make some additional minor adjustments to our site in the near future.

    Our team hired LDA Interactive to totally redesign our outdated firm website. Over the past few months, John has been extremely patient and very responsive as we have slowly overhauled our site. John is professional and friendly and readily available to answer questions. He delivers quality product on time which is crucial given our tight timeline. I’m excited to see our finished website!

    John updated and corrected numerous coding errors and script problems with our magento website that the original programmer created by not using best practices. Worked efficiently and quickly to resolve issues. Very knowledgeable magento programmer who we highly recommend and would use again.

    We were re-branding our company and product line and needed to create a completely customized website that was mobile responsive. Creative changes were constantly being made but John delivered and worked through every little detail that I wanted. He's a fantastic web developer and I would highly recommend to anyone.

    John Long is a great digital partner. We struggled for years with previous agencies and we were lucky enough to find John when we did. Our digital presence has grown rapidly under his watch and we couldn't be happier. John is smart, responsive, and a true partner. He has been a true delight to work with.

    As a business owner who has limited knowledge in website development, I feel that John's strongest quality is that he is always keeping our company's best interests in mind. He has great SEO insight and is easy to communicate with. When we create our next website, we will be contacting him.

    LDA Interactive was awesome working with our company (neuro Drinks) to revamp our website. We are a large beverage company sold in Target, Wal Mart and others and really needed a site to match our brand. The old site, clunky and out of date, had to be reworked into a completely new site on a new platform. In a company as large as ours, there are about a hundred opinions and edits came day after day. LDA interactive worked with us to realize any legal requirements we were required to meet, as well as incorporate a new and more simple design. In this industry, we need constant updates to the format and code-- and so we were lucky enough to have custom code written for the base functions of the site, as well as having the rest be in an easy to adjust format for our IT department. Compared to a number of bids we got, we were extremely lucky in both a fair price, easy communication, and fairly instantaneous problem solving.

    John Long's LDA Interactive is simply, my ace in the hole when it comes to anything web development related. I've now had the pleasure of using him on three separate projects for which I had strict guidelines and expectations, not to mention a very tight time crunch on each project so far. John's knowledge of the space, instinct and years of experience make him a diamond in the rough for anyone looking to score a great asset to their project(s). Thank you John for your impeccable work, integrity and highest of professional grade, couldn't be more satisfied with the effort and results yielded from you and your team of experts, exceeding our expectations, time and time again for me and my associates.

    LDA Interactive was incredible to work with. The entire team was very responsive and competent. They also acted quickly and resolved my web site issues from my previous developer who I had to fire. LDA is also priced very reasonably. Overall, an amazing experience, give them a call, accept their quote, and don't look back!

    John is very knowledgeable and professional. I wish that I had met him two web-developers ago, and I look forward to continue working with him.
  • Chloe S. Nov 12, 2015
    John has been working for our company for a while now, and he has given us amazing results with our Adwords campaigns. We have about 19 locations across the US and we have seen a significant increase in traffic to our campaigns, an increase in sales and our dollars spent more efficiently. He significantly improved our website and increased traffic and leads. He is extremely professional and has provided us with multiple solutions to a variety of inquiries and challenges. Has always been a pleasure to work with, and he will do anything he can to get the job done well. Thank you, John!

    John is sharp, efficient, timely. His work/coding is clean, accurate and smart. He really knows his stuff, but there's something else, too, something you don't find with most developers: Professionalism. He understands the real world of clients, customers and their quirks doesn't always work as logically as binary code does. It's his combination of technical skill and professionalism that sets him apart from most developers, and makes working with him fulfilling instead of frustrating.

    He did exactly what he said he would for the price he quoted. Built a very nice site for my business.

  • Abhi R. Aug 11, 2015
    We used LDA Interactive for our Magento eCommerce website design and development project. We sell apparel and accessories directly to consumers. John also handled the integration with ShipStation and Solid Commerce for us. For ongoing services we have a maintenance agreement and SEO services. He is very knowledgeable and helped up decrease our cost of customer acquisition and increase our conversion rates on website traffic. Thank You :)
