"We were looking for someone to create an online 'internal' shop that would allow Royal Yachting Association (RYA) affiliated clubs to order personalised marketing products. It also needed to link to our external mapping application and to our print fulfilment company, Trojan Mailing. Rob Dewing from Northerwood Systems who partnered with Dan at WP Doctors to create this system for us.
Rob provided the e-commerce expertise, account management and support. Dan created the portal, the event data API and provided the technical expertise. Although the project proved to be more complicated than initially anticipated, Rob & Dan remained patient throughout and saw it through to completion.
They were helpful, provided excellent teaching and were easy to contact. The project was completed during the Covid-19 lockdowns and having an honest and open relationship amongst our team enabled us to work around the additional difficulties that the situation brought such as reduced working hours due to illness and childcare. We would strongly recommend working with Dan from WP Doctors and Rob from Northerwood."
I came across the WordPress Plug-In (SKB) after it was recommended to me. Having read They Ask You Answer by Marcus Sheridan, I was keen to use the principles on my website and this plug-in enabled me to do just that, saving me a lot of time in the process as I didn't have to write something myself!
Dan was extremely proactive when I made the purchase, offering help to make sure I was on the right lines and to review my site to advise on questions that might be appropriate. His response to feature requests was very positive and nothing was too much trouble.
I would recommend the plug-in to anyone who understands the principles of They Ask You Answer and wants to use them to offer free, honest and useful information to educate their target market.
Launching a new website has always been an ordeal in the past. But Dan made the whole experience so easy, efficient and peaceful. The first difference was that he listened; then, he communicated the build process clearly, and he also offered insightful marketing advice that won me new business before the website even launched. From start to finish (which was on time) and at this very moment I feel safe in his wizardly hands and important to his technically brilliant mind.
I started working with Dan in 2010 and he saw me through the evolution and maintenance of several business websites, working both directly with me and with my graphic designer. Dan was always helpful, responsive and knowledgeable. I relied on his support right through to my retirement from executive coaching and beyond. I can thoroughly recommend his friendly professionalism. He's always willing to help, and I know that if he is on board, I can be confident in a good, stable solution.
We've worked with Dan for over 7 years now and we wouldn’t trust anyone else with our website. We have seen our business grow from a 'one woman band' turning over a few thousand a year to a limited company with 9 staff on target to hit half a million this year.
His work is top class - from the initial quote stage, which is clear and transparent so you know exactly what you are paying for and the timescales that’s are agreed in advance. The process is then helped by great communication including email, and telephone when needed - he tells you exactly what is required of you but is understanding that deadlines have to be shifted when our work gets in the way!
Over the years he has provided design changes, helped improve the speed and features on the site and provided security support (out of hours in urgent times when needed). He has set up great systems and coded features to allow us to customise the website as much as possible. Never creating extra work for the sake of it, instead always giving us options for the most efficient solution that solves our problem (e.g. creating menus and settings that we can customise ourselves).
After 6 years of the same, basic, but much edited website that had served us so well, the time came for a rebrand and restructure... a massive project! He understood from our original chats and brief what we needed - it only took a couple of emails and a half hour chat initially to come up with the quote - and together created an extended timescale to get the work done. After telling me my budget was not enough for what was required we agreed a price, which was higher than I had in mind... but now that the project is complete, it was worth every penny!
The website is now rebranded and relaunched, and many of our customers have already told us - it's awesome! His designer updated our logo and created a fabulous new modern look based on the colours used and Dan even helped us with a new strap line. We love it!
We have over 1000 products with 10,000 variations and with the restructure you can now find products so much more easily and each item is displayed stylishly, in a way to sell! We know our product and service is the best but we now have a website to finally show them off at their best too ! It has gained some great new features and now has a modern feel - we couldn’t ask for more!
If you are looking for a trustworthy web developer who will help and guide you through the process, be honest throughout and deliver in all his promises - Dan (and his team) are for you! I can’t thank him enough!
Since Dan re-worked our original site back a few years ago, I've been able to benefit from his advice and expertise as we've grown and developed more websites.
His knowledge base just doesn’t cover the techie stuff (although he even makes that easy to understand too) but his knowledge about what works marketing-wise, is priceless. It's really easy to outsource to Dan, as he understands what you want, and what you NEED for your business... which lets me get on with the important task of creating content to upload.
I have known of Dan and his WordPress expertise for sometime and recently had need to use him to fix up some issues with my own website.
Not only did he do exactly that but did it quickly, to budget, but even more impressively thought about the implications, and offered suggestions on how to make it even better without needing to invest more money.
We all come at these situations with our own awareness and sometimes it hinders us as we only see what we can, what our own experience has given us and just like I do with users on LinkedIn Dan helped with his depth of experience on WordPress to come up with some great suggestions and ideas to move the website further forwards.
Having worked with Dan for a number of years, I rely on his deep WordPress expertise for custom coding and tricky technical issues so that I can offer a wider service and better solutions to my own web development clients. By working with Dan, I'm able to provide my clients with better tailored functionality when I'm building and maintaining Wordpress websites.
With Dan, I particularly appreciate that he comes up with pragmatic and ingenious solutions that fit within my clients' budgets (even the small ones), creating code that I can then extend and maintain within my ongoing client relationship.
Dan is an excellent WordPress developer, and there are three reasons why I use him rather any other. Firstly, he really knows what he's doing with WordPress. We've used other developers who have put in hacks and workarounds that simply break later. Dan gets it done properly, first time.
Secondly, Dan is very responsive, replying to my feedback and implementing changes and adjustments in hours rather than days.
Lastly, rather than blindly following my ideas, I can rely on Dan to make suggestions and recommendations based on his experience that produce a better end result. A project usually evolves with time, and when things crop up later, Dan is happy to implement tweaks and adjustments to ensure the end result is exactly what it should be. Most of all, Dan is refreshingly easy to work with.
As usual Dan Harrison provided the ultimate service in designing, editing and supplying my second eBook, the first has become a real benefit in positioning myself with potential customers and the second book just fills a gap in my marketing tools.
I really appreciate having Dan's technical and marketing expertise to help me create the right content and make it all work with my MailChimp email automation too. He was on time, on budget and successful... there is not much else I can say, thank you Dan for a great service and for all your sage advice.
As a business owner I COULD spend time learning how to do the technical stuff for my website. But, it's not the best use of my time. I'm also a big fan of surrounding yourself with experts at the things you could do but shouldn't.
That's why I love working with Dan. He's my 'go-to' techie expert. I can just chat to him, and he'll just sort it for me within a day or so. If I'm stuck on how to change something on the website, Dan will just send me a simple diagram that explains what I need to do, in the simplest way possible.
It's REALLY tough to find a reliable web developer who you can trust to just handle your website stuff. It's even harder to find a web developer who gets marketing, and can sort out all of those fiddly bits with tracking code and CRMs. And Dan helps me with all that stuff and more.
Dan isn't the cheapest, but you get what you pay for and I pay for an expert. Dan is one of my team, as important as my book keeper, accountant and business support. I know he only works with a handful of clients, and he's super-selective with who he works with. I'm really glad that I'm one of those clients.
After engaging Dan's services to help me to maximise the effectiveness of Infusionsoft, it was a no brainer to sign up for his Development Credits. Whenever I need anything done on the Squeeze Page Toolkit, Infusionsoft or even need Wordpress support, I just need to send Dan an email.
It's lovely knowing that I’ve got Dan’s support on hand, so that I don’t have to waste time working out how to do it myself. I've known Dan for years and he always does an excellent job, on time and I'd highly recommend him for anyone who needs help with the techie stuff in their business!
I needed 2 sites migrating to a different hosting provider and a couple of changes to one of the sites during the process. Dan told me what he proposed, it made sense, so he provided a proposal and we spoke about timings.
Then, everything just happened smoothly and I'm now seemlessly up and running, with the changes having been applied. Not sure how it could have been any easier. Thanks Dan
I’ve known Dan for a few years and watched his reputation spread far and wide. So, when I needed a new website, he was my developer of choice. Why? Because I know me! I like human interaction when it comes to communications, keeping me informed, handling changes and service support. Dan delivered that in droves.
He was always attentive, patient to explain concepts and importantly able to gently steer my thoughts when they were (unbeknown to me) heading in the wrong direction. Dan brings a deep understanding of marketing and extensive knowledge of WordPress together and turns those essential elements into a seamless website function that hits marketing objectives – spot on Dan!
Dan is such a good find. He has the same values and work ethic as we do and it seems nothing is beyond his capabilities when it comes to making your website as good as it can be.
We had a plan of what we wanted to achieve with our site, but when seeing what Dan could do for us and after discussions with him we extended that plan, and he now takes care of the maintenance of our website for us on a monthly basis too. Which means we can get on with what we do without worrying about anything going wrong. Every business, small or large should have a Dan!
Dan is an expert in his field and passionate about providing excellent customer service. We needed both a new website and an efficient lead capture system that would work hard for us. Dan listened to our requirements then built us exactly that - from scratch.
We will continue to use WP Doctors on an ongoing basis and consider Dan an integral part of our team. He's a real asset to us, and he would be for any business, providing expertise in a field that's ever-changing and updating.
