One Purpose School is a public charter school in the Bayview area of San Francisco, the highest poverty neighborhood in the city. Their goal is to provide an innovative education and a path to college for their students in order to break the cycle of poverty.But their old website did not adequately reflect these noble aspirations, and they were in dire need of a redesign. I worked with another designer and built their new site in WordPress using the Genesis Framework.I like the full …

I feel incredibly lucky to have found Erim Foster to build my author website. He was unflaggingly patient and helpful, and demystified the process so that I would feel comfortable administering the entire site. He interpreted my ideas and suggestions into code and produced a visually beautiful site that keeps users browsing for surprisingly long times. We worked remotely over email between San Francisco and London: the workflow and the price were both just right. As a native of the Bay Area, I’m still tickled by the fact that my website was built on a boat in San Francisco Bay.
If only there was someone as smart and competent as Erim for every project for which we hire contractors! We have been more than satisfied with his work on the Decades of Style website. He gives us exactly what we ask for when we come to him with requests or changes for the site. And the best part is, when the job is done – it all works perfectly!! It is refreshing to have someone providing quality work, on time and with no hassles. Decades of Style is a repeat customer for Erim’s services.
Erim develop our initial website for our rental property in 2006 and has just completed a complete refresh (http://www.lunaazulproperties.com) which has increased our inquiries over 200%. His patience, creativity and knowledge helped us develop the right message and look.
We contracted Erim to modernize our front-end toolset at ScreenPopper.com. His insights and experience moved the project along quite efficiently, finishing ahead of schedule and under budget. He was a great resource throughout the process, professional, and predicably reliable. As an added bonus, his SEO best practice experience gave us a strong footing as we moved our business to market. A true five-star contractor!
I hired Erim to develop our custom Web 2.0 internet portal system. The system he built is fast, flexible, and easy to modify and maintain. We’ve used it to help grow our business and web presence with a minimum of growing pains. I highly endorse Erim for custom web development – in fact, I’ve already recommended him to a number of friends and colleagues.
Erim Foster worked for Stone Soup Magazine for several years both developing and maintaining our website. Amongst other projects, he was responsible for developing a complex order form for our magazine, a form that flawlessly handles the majority of our business. Whatever bell or whistle we wanted added to the form Erim was always able to oblige.
Staff with and without technical knowledge found it easy to work with Erim.
Besides excellent programming skills I’d like to emphasize that whenever there was a problem he responded immediately, no matter the time of day, day of the week, or whether he was on vacation. A couple of times our website went down during the Holiday season (through no fault of Erim’s) and he dropped everything in his own life to get us back up. Erim is always calm, always competent, and always reliable. I’d also like to emphasize that he is honest in his assessment of jobs, honest in his billing, and as far as we were concerned for the many years he worked for us the perfect freelance programmer.
If you’d like to speak with me in person, feel free to contact me.
Erim was the go-to guy on our WordPress website — stonesoup.com — from 2006 to 2012. We could always count on him to reply quickly to our emails and complete his work in a timely manner. Erim did a great job on a variety of tasks, including the revamping of our secure order forms. We recommend him highly.
I just wanted to thank you so much for all of your help over the years with my website. I get 99% of my business from it and so much great feedback about it.
You are always so prompt in communication with me which I greatly appreciate. I also very much like the fact that you are willing to help me with the little tweaks on my site and your suggestions on how to make the site better.
I will definitely recommend you to my friends!
Thanks again for your reliability.
Erim helped me to build and maintain the original Ypulse.com. It was literally me, blogging from my apartment, and Erim keeping it all going, making sure I could generate a newsletter and taking whatever new requirement I had and making it a reality. Erim was a great partner to me as an entrepreneur. Highly recommend.
Speed is one of the most important considerations when optimizing a WordPress website.In fact, studies suggest that 47% of consumers expect a website to load in two seconds or less. Forty percent will abandon a website that takes more than three seconds to load. If you’ve never tested the load time of your website, chances are very good that it fails these two tests.It's very easy to call yourself a WordPress developer, even though you may not know (or care about) the necessary steps …
When it comes to running a website, especially a website that's used actively to generate leads for a business or organization, there's really nothing more important than quality hosting.While web hosting companies are as plentiful as grains of sand on a beach, finding one with good performance and support at a reasonable price is not easy. But since this is what I do and I'm a bit of a stickler (read: curmudgeon), I've spent a fair amount of time researching and experimenting. And, I'm not …
