I took in two years of tax returns on a Monday and had them in my hand that week. In fact Shawn even met me at his office on Saturday to go over everything with me. And we are talking about returns with rental property and a 1031 Exchange! Shawn responded to my Thumbtack request almost immediately and I will be seeing him again come February (if I can get my stuff together that fast). I would highly recommend his firm for taxes or business consulting. I feel much better having a CPA working on my taxes than just a tax preparer.
Ernie was amazing! He really helped prepare us and help us plan out what would work best. He listened to us and made sure we were happy. He made our day so special and made us feel so comfortable. I will without a doubt recommend him always to everyone!
I had a free consultation with Scott this week and I feel completely prepared to keep my books and to be able to take advantage of every deduction come tax time! I look forward to working with Collaborative Business Solutions as my business grows.
I will always cherish the memories of my daughterâs special day because of the moments that Jarrad was able to capture in the exquisite photography that he so thoughtfully and carefully shot. I canât thank him enough for his time and professionalism; he was truly a pleasure to work with. I appreciated his art and approach so much that I booked his services days later to do some additional family shots and plan on working with him again next month for another family event. I look forward to working with him in the future and recommending his services every chance I get.
We haven’t done any business together yet but we had a time to meet and he was on time and even a little bit early. I will do an update as the progression of our work together resumes.
Jon Toorock, the owner and founder of All Fantastic, made my dreams come true! I came to him with a vague idea based on how I wanted the website to feel and he nailed it! He is a wealth of knowledge and even helped with my business plan. He has become my go-to person and I can't recommend him enough. Michelle D. van Hees The Brahmin Group www.brahmingroup.com
Danielle @ Bear Country Catering was awesome to work with. We started planning our Christmas party in October and she was extremely flexible and helpful in creating a menu that fit our needs and pricing that fit our budget! She was also a lifesaver during a last hour snafu with tablecloths! The guests at our party loved the food and we would definitely recommend!
True story... Last year after 23 years in business I called Ann to help me organize my growing company going forward. I was busy beyond control personally as was my company. I told her what my goals and future plans were. She developed a plan specifically for my needs. I can honestly say without a doubt her influence in the way I now do business is immeasurable. I have changed the way I run the company and schedule me time. This year my company will have the controlled / manageable growth I was looking for and I will be taking the time off I need. God bless you Ann! I'm following your outline and it's working perfectly!

I offer practical help and expertise for your Internet business... from a single marketing campaign, to your entire online business strategy. Email marketing, website development, SEO, paid advertising, social media, lead generation, ecommerce, split testing, you name it. I can help you find smart ways to increase your customer engagement, drive sales and signups, and increase your online profitability. I've worked on thousands of projects locally and around the world for clients as diverse as multinational companies to single person startups. I can do it for you or show you how to do it yourself. Lots of testimonials are available. Here are my client testimonials: "I have found David's knowledge and experience unmatched in the industry. Without David's expertise and guidance for the past 7 years, we would not be nearly as successful as we are." - Myles Norin, CEO, Agora, Inc. "David Cross - fan-damn-tastic. His genius singlehandedly help us to raise readership and profits by 40% - and fast too! Simply one of the best." - Mike Ward, Publisher, Money Map Press "David is a superb marketer who never loses touch with the underlying strategies that make any marketing effective, regardless of the marketing medium." - John Hines, Entrepreneur, Sandy Spring, MD "As the CEO of a major publishing and Internet marketing company, the up-to-the-minute marketing techniques I've learned from David over the years factor in to almost every decision I make. In fact, his advice has played a major role in hundreds of thousands, if not millions, of dollars in sales in this year alone. "He knows not only what's working today... but what's going to work tomorrow. And that pioneering, "never resting on his laurels" attitude gives me and my company the edge I'm looking for. "But the great part is, as an advisor to my company, he also takes time to break down his "expert-level" marketing tactics when mentoring my employees. I've seen the results in the past several months as my team markets smarter and faster... and, most importantly, brings in more revenue." - MaryEllen Tribby, CEO and Executive Publisher, Early To Rise "You have been consistently generous to our side in the number of hours you have billed compared to other contractors...they always seem low to me vs what we are getting from you." - Steve Thorne, CEO, National Marketing Resources "David Cross has been instrumental in driving the Internet marketing of my new business. His important and meaningful suggestions significantly and positively impact the success of my business." - Dr. Lori Gibson, Veterinarian, Portland, OR "David's support has been invaluable as I have built my web presence over the years. He is highly responsive and combines impressive technical ability with stringent cost-awareness and a common-sense approach to what works best online." - Simon Wright, Organic Food Consultant, Former Chair, Soil Association (UK) "Ask David Cross!" I can't even count the number of times I've said that phrase in the past 10 years. Any time we needed to figure out a better way to do something, how to get more traffic, why something wasn't working (and what to do to fix it!), or had a new idea we wanted to test and wanted to make sure we did it right the first time, my response was always the same: "Ask David Cross." And it's always been the right way to go. It's very hard to find someone who understands hardware, software and actual human beings at the same time. His knowledge is unparalleled, his natural instincts and insights are invaluable, and his creativity is a breath of fresh air, especially in an industry overloaded with people who think about technology but not about customers. David is a valuable resource for anyone doing business in today's sophisticated Internet world." - Jenny Thompson, CEO, Health Subsidiaries, Agora Inc. "David has shown us new ways to bring-in real-time cost data from our paid search campaigns. This creates powerful new reporting for our customer acquisition efforts." - Jason Pell, VP Technology, Agora Inc. "We have always been impressed by David's creativity, and his ability to find multiple marketing approaches. He is an excellent copywriter, always displaying great sensitivity to customer needs, and has helped us greatly with our segmented marketing. "He is always up to date with the latest developments in the industry, and I would have no hesitation in recommending him as a powerful addition to any marketing team." - Jonathan Hinde, Managing Director, Oshadhi UK Limited "David's help has been invaluable in allowing us achieve our online marketing goals. His advice is always practical and it's based on what works in the real-world. He doesn't waste your time with theory... just proven real-world solutions." - Jackie Flynn, Marketing Director, International Living Get in touch for a no-obligation quote. Thank you David
