    I partnered with Gene at Big Apple Media partnered to develop a website from the ground up. Not only is his turnaround time very quick, but he has great insight into SEO, content strategy, and design. I appreciated how organized the whole process was and the system of tracking changes and versions was very easy to follow. He’s an expert in WordPress and creates great training tutorials. Gene also offers hosting services. The cost is competitive and the service is an A+.

    Big Apple Media designed an amazing website for me. Gene is extremely knowledgeable about web design, not only from a technical perspective but he also understands what attracts people and keeps them on the site. He really encouraged me to focus my content and messaging and helped me modify the design as my content changed. Because of his guidance, I have a brand new website that is far better than I ever expected. Gene was extremely responsive and I sincerely appreciated his expertise, patience, and kindness. I would highly recommend his services and look forward to working with Big Apple Media again in the future!

    We had to redesign our website for years and kept pushing it away due to having a very busy home care business. Gene reached out to us after evaluating our website. He didn’t add any fluff like most people do when they say ‘we can make your website better’. Gene told us exactly what we were missing, why and what he’s going to do to fix it.Since our website is the face of our business I personally got involved. I have built a few website in the past myself and have worked with other professionals under my on various websites. With Gene, I had the best experience to date!Gene is professional, courteous, creative, patient and very reasonable. I highly recommend Gene to anyone looking to give their website a clean wash and have it looking amazing without breaking the bank. Gene will give you very smart ideas that you may not have thought of.We were so impressed with him that we now have Gene’s company host our website and be our guy going forward with anything related to our website.He’s a rear find!

After a very short space of time the site started to rank for keywords and continues to do so every week, plus the domain authority is now starting to climb too! Gene knows what needs to be done!

    "Gene created a stunning website for me. When we started working together, I didn’t know what I wanted or even what I needed for a state-of-the-art website and Gene worked with me to clarify my vision. He then brought that vision to fruition. Gene’s work ethic is exceptional and he was totally committed to building my site with the results exceeding my expectations in both appearance and functionality.

I highly recommend Gene for future work not only focused on the US market but globally."
    "Gene went above and beyond in helping me improve my website. Hats off to Gene for being patient and flexible during the project, making sure everything was in order both on the front and back end. I appreciate his help in extending his hours and working around the budget from the one we agreed on when we first started. He made sure that all glitches were sorted out along the way and provided every solution possible to fix any issues. In the end, I’m very impressed with how the website turned out. A very big thanks, now I can do my business with more confidence."

He stays in touch with updates on your project with him which made me feel very secure that he was going to do a great job. It’s nice to work with someone ‘so efficient’ like Gene.” So if you are seeking someone to design your website and who really cares about his clients.

I found Big Apple Media on LinkedIn; I really liked the aesthetic of the work in the portfolio and set up a phone meeting with Gene. By the time Gene and I talked, he had spent time on our site and not only identified every single item I didn’t like about our site, but he made suggestions I had not considered and offered insight into how to best optimize our site. Gene’s communication, service, and understanding of what we were looking for were excellent. He built us the site of our dreams-we are beyond thrilled. ”

    "Gene was GREAT to work with. I will continue to use him on all projects. Not only was he incredibly easy to get a hold of, he was very helpful in screen sharing over Skype so that I could learn how to make the basic WordPress edits. Additionally, he was very patient with our team and did everything he could to assist us and make all the appropriate edits that we requested. When our timeline changed, he was more than accommodating. Aesthetically, the website looks great! People comment on how beautiful the site design is. Do not hesitate in working with Gene!"
    "I hired Gene and Big Apple Media to help me with SEO for my website, Be Prepared Period. SEO has always been a bit of a mystery to me with the constant changes that Google makes. With all the conflicting information on “best practices” I found it hard to know what to do. After consulting with Gene he gave me an amazing set of tools to use to better understand exactly what I needed to do and how to track our progress. He helped me put together an action plan after doing some keyword research so that we could start seeing quick results. He’s friendly, professional, responsive and has been extremely helpful! He has actually got me excited to do SEO work on the site – something I never thought I’d say. I look forward to continuing to work with him and would recommend his services to anyone seeking help with SEO work. Thank you Gene!"
    "We hired Gene and Big Apple Media to develop our website LDRFA.org. Our previous developer experiences were not positive, to put it mildly! I was highly impressed by the ease of use and flexible customization options we were presented with. The website was much improved was well designed. The completed website was ready and launched on the date we agreed. Many of the web agencies trick you with their reasonable prices and then when you launch your website everything become an extra. Gene not only stayed true to the pricing but even offered additional support by helping us optimize our website at no additional cost."
    "Excellent job! Thanks to Big Apple Media I have a great social media presence and I am optimized for search engine results. He has given me tools to update all social media accounts seamlessly, and I feel confident going forward that I will be able to continue to optimize my site on my own, as he spent a lot of time educating me on SEO, I truly learned a lot! Gene’s responsiveness and expertise was superb! Plus, he was a pleasure to work with."

    "I was referred to Gene of Big Apple Media by one of his clients. I’ve worked with a number of web developers in the past—complete with the egos and head trips many of them possess—but never have I dealt with someone as knowledgeable, honest and patient as Gene is. He made the entire process of designing and developing our website a painless one. It is refreshing to see someone who takes a special interest in helping his clients to achieve their goals, whether it’s design, implementation, marketing, advertising, or more. I can honestly say that Gene is like a partner, guiding us through the maze of web design. It was, and continues to be, a real pleasure dealing with him. His rates are very reasonable, and together with his excellent service, you’d be hard-pressed to find a better firm to handle your needs."
    "Gene did an outstanding job on my website! I feel lucky to have found him because he communicated so well, was organized throughout the whole process, and his experience and skills are top notch.

I appreciated his patience in answering all of my questions and collaborating with me when I wanted his advice. It is extremely important to me that I work with someone who has integrity, vast knowledge and experience, and communicates well. Gene surpassed my expectations in that regard, and that is why I will be hiring him again for my next project."

He was also very honest and showed me a few things that I can do myself to maintain my site on my own, which I really appreciated. I have used Gene for several projects for various clients and he is always easy to work with. I’ll continue to use his help. My website is beautiful!"
    "Big Apple Media is wonderful! Gene has not only taken the time to listen to what I want my site to do and look like, but has also taken the time to explain what he is doing, train me on how to manage my site, and suggested ways for me to market and save money on my site. I can’t say enough good things about the service offered by Big Apple Media."
    "I’m extremely happy with my experience of working with Big Apple. Media on our website. He has great knowledge of what is best for our site and made sure he delivered what we were looking for.

    "I found Gene and Big Apple Media very easy to work with. He always returned emails and phone calls in a timely manner and was patient with me since I’m not very knowledgeable when it comes to computers. To this day I contact him about the site and he’s more than happy to help me out. I think you will be happy with his services.”
    "I am very pleased with my results and recommend anyone who is looking for a great website! They have great prices that match the high quality of their work!"
    "I’m happy with how the site looks. You’ve done amazing work on this and we’ll definitely have you building more sites for us."
    "I’ve been working with Gene of Big Apple Media for over 5 years. He worked hard to set up my initial website, so when I decided to update my design naturally I enlisted his services once again. Gene is a one-of-a-kind individual who’s a pleasure to deal with. As a blogger with limited knowledge of web development, I turn to Gene each time as he makes it all very clear for me. He does it all, from design and development to theme updates to troubleshooting. Knowing I can turn to gene helps me sleep better at night."
    “I recently opened my own practice and needed help immediately set up my website. Gene was referred to me by a friend and I had a great experience working with him. I am not tech savvy. Gene was very patient and took the time to design the website I envisioned. He was easy to get in touch with and had great ideas to enhance the productivity and look of the site. I have already received many compliments on the website! I would highly recommend him for any web design!”
    "Big Apple Media and Gene were very easy to work with. Always responsive and very patient with us when we made changes mid-development. I would certainly recommend him."
    "Big Apple Media has been a pleasure to do business with. Specifically, Gene demonstrated significant WordPress knowledge and development skills. I asked him to develop the main site on my hosting server and then turn all control over to me. In the past, I have found web developers hard to get ahold of and been left hostage by their time constraints and unwillingness to use my web server space. Big Apple’s price was more than fair and the results were outstanding. Gene worked with me through numerous revisions and was very patient with my creative ideas and requests. The proof is in the final product. I believe my website turned out great and it is the foundation for a marketing engine that brings in leads for my consulting business. I have already been told by a fellow industry Marketing executive that I could sell my site for 12 times what I paid for it. To be specific: if you are looking for someone to design a WordPress site and make it easy for you to manage yourself, then Big Apple Media is your company. Perfect for any small to medium sized business."
    "The website looks great. It’s super functional and so easy to post, loaded with content and great information! You did an awesome job! Keep up whatever you’re doing. I look forward to meeting you sometimes."
    "I just love the website-it is soothing to look at and draws you in. Thanks for doing such a great service."
    "Where are you from–heaven? The only place I’ve experienced such great customer service is my own establishment."
    "Ever time I’ve worked with Gene he has been responsible, professional, and very timely. I honestly couldn’t be happier. He makes himself available even on short notice and does great work for us. I’ve had such a good experience that I’ve recommended him to others as well."
    "Very pleased with the final website–thank you!"
    "I am very impressed by what you all have put together. YOU’RE DOING A GREAT JOB."
