The Coding Studio deserves an A+!

I spent a lot of time looking for a great web developer, for what I believe to be a very unique project. I chose The Coding Studio Inc because of the great first impression I had with their team. I wasn't wrong because they continued to amaze me with their work. A very regular occurrence was having my expectations exceeded. This project is incredibly important to me and they made it just as important to all of them. Even after the site was launched, they have continued to support the project during some really critical problems with the marketing team I was using. The Coding Studio Team took control of the situation and restored my anxiety and thus my sanity. Using The Coding Studio Inc., was the best decision I could have made. I couldn't be happier with the miracles they performed!

The Coding Studio is a pleasure to work with

The Coding Studio worked as a custom web development contractor for us. I’ve been fortunate enough to work with them over the years and consider them to be an important part of our team. They are a pleasure to work with and their great sense of humour makes it easy for me to work with them daily. As part of the IT team, they have developed and maintained a number of in-house Intranet and public web based applications, using a variety of web development languages, including PHP, ASP, ASP.NET, JavaScript/AJAX, XHTML and CSS. I would recommend The Coding Studio because they are bright, responsive, and a great problem-solvers. Being a non-technical project manager, they are really good at translating technical details into layman terms which I am able to understand. They ensure that I understand what they are doing and how it’s a benefit (and adds value) to the project. They are always reliable and I never have problems trying to reach them if I have any questions or issues. They help me to keep my projects on budget and delivers in a timely manner.

I highly recommend The Coding Studio

I've been working with The Coding Studio for coming up on a year now and have leaned on them for just about everything imaginable. They are a driving force behind our continued growth and expansion.  They do exceptional work and without reservation, I highly recommend them. I am incredibly pleased with the results of my new website. It looks clean, fresh and includes elements that allow me to keep in touch with all my clients. The Coding Studio was incredibly professional. I don't know what I would have done without them!

Absolutely Fantastic

The Coding Studio has been absolutely fantastic in developing and launching our website. Chris and his team were outstanding. They were extremely knowledgeable, responsive, and creative in helping guide us through the process. Their professionalism and expertise was a great help, as we were unsure how the whole process worked and we don't have a lot of website experience. If you aren't sure it is worth the money, I can assure that it is worth it! We would work with them again in a heartbeat and I will be recommending them to anyone I know who might be building a new website. Thank you once again, you have been amazing.

Got burned bad from TheCodingStudio.com

Summary in short: Promised me to deliver a functioning website. Confirmed with me that he knew how to do all website related challenges as well as SEO which included Google. Over time he notified that he had no clue how to make pages from a raw template, didnt know anything about Google and that I should contact Google myself. His first task was to transfer from one website to another info and making sure paypal buttons were correct. He failed to notify me that he just copied the website and didnt even know the protocols to setting paypal on a new site, had no clue how to do meta tags, placed over 500 *** sites on a travel related website. Placed HIS name CHRISHANEY.com on my site without my permission, placed useless backlinks, never did any SEO work to my site. When I called to complain, he started to ignore my calls, and emails. Its taking months and months to finding out the trash he put on my site is costing me thousands of dollars of correcting and loosing business. He is a scammer and is giving other SEO's a bad name. He has caused me great distress both financially and emotionally. I didnt realize how much I lost but he did agree to reiimburse 50% of what I paid. I didnt realize how much damage he did to my site which is way more than what I wasint aware of. I am extremely pissed off since I shouldn't have to go through this as a small business owner.

This negative review is nonsense. I've worked with this company and they were excellent!

The following is the rebuttal by The Coding Studio:

"Summary in short: Promised me to deliver a functioning website.Confirmed with me that he knew how to do all website related challenges as well as SEO which included Google."

The Coding Studio was contacted by this client in an extremely hostile manner, complaining endlessly about how previous SEO companies had (based in India) had "ripped her off" from her perspective, and how it better not happen again. This client wanted the world, with an very low budget.

When the world was not delivered, their past anger was dragged into the current project. The Coding Studio was reluctant taking on such a hostile client, and will never do so again. Besides this client, The Coding Studio has never had a negative review.

"Over time he notified that he had no clue how to make pages from a raw template, didnt know anything about Google and that I should contact Google myself. His first task was to transfer from one website to another info and making sure paypal buttons were correct.

He failed to notify me that he just copied the website and didnt even know the protocols to setting paypal on a new site, had no clue how to do meta tags, placed over 500 *** sites on a travel related website. Placed HIS name CHRISHANEY.com on my site without my permission, placed useless backlinks, never did any SEO work to my site."

The client simply does not understand what happens behind the scenes in web design and development, and is making claims that make no sense. I will give examples. Templates are a series of web pages.

The client agreed to purchase an existing template. The template was not modified, only copied by The Coding Studio, yet the client claims The Coding Studio can't make web pages from a template. The client claims The Coding Studio knows nothing about Google. By this I assume the client means search engine optimization for placement on search engines, such as Google.

If this client contacted The Coding Studio for help with SEO because they didn't understand SEO themselves, how can the client state that The Coding Studio doesn't understand it? One person must understand a topic themselves before stating that another does not understand it. The Coding Studio did not ask the client to contact Google directly. Google doesn't offer SEO services.

This makes no sense. The client's old site contained a small number of PayPal buttons which were copied by The Coding Studio to the purchased template. Months later the client complained that the prices on the buttons were incorrect, claiming that the PayPal buttons were done incorrectly, even though they were simply copied from the old site. The client then accuses The Coding Studio for placing over 500 **** backlinks to the website.

The Coding Studio follows the SEO techniques recommended by Google and would therefore not be involved in this type of behaviour. The Coding Studio wrote travel articles which pointed to the client's travel business website - nothing more. These backlinks must have been created by previous SEO companies, perhaps the Indian company. The point must again be made about the clients budget.

The client was forced to initially deal with an Indian company because of their low budget. Indian companies are notorious for their shady business practices. It is an industry standard that a web design company adds a 'designed by' link in a websites footer. The Coding Studio did nothing shady by following this standard.

"When I called to complain, he started to ignore my calls, and emails.

Its taking months and months to finding out the trash he put on my site is costing me thousands of dollars of correcting and loosing business. He is a scammer and is giving other SEO's a bad name. He has caused me great distress both financially and emotionally." A schedule was created where The Coding Studio would do SEO monthly. The client continued to ask for frequent updates, when there was nothing new to report.

The SEO work was done at the beginning of each month only, yet the client wanted updates week by week. There was simply nothing new to report, which was perhaps interpreted as nothing was being done. "I didnt realize how much I lost but he did agree to reiimburse 50% of what I paid." It's interesting how the client first states that The Coding Studio cost the client "thousands of dollars" and "great financial distress", and then in the next sentence states that they "didn't realize how much they lost". The entire project for the client was $1,000, so thousands of dollars could not have been lost.

When the client called to complain about the work that was done, many months later, The Coding Studio refunded $500 within 24hrs. "I didnt realize how much damage he did to my site which is way more than what I wasint aware of.I am extremely pissed off since I shouldn't have to go through this as a small business owner." This client was "pissed" as they state above, but long before they contacted The Coding Studio, and this anger was carried forward. The client need to vent, so here they did it, as illogical as it has been. The Coding Studio has since learned to turn down work from potential clients who initially come across as frustrated or untrusting, to avoid this type of irrational behaviour and conflict.

Here are a few testimonials from other The Coding Studio clients: http://www.thecodingstudio.com/?page=testimonials "The Coding Studio performed a miraculous job on my new website. Their expertise and attention to detail was quite remarkable. Nothing was ever an issue - if I envisioned it, they were able to execute it. If I ever require another website I would definitely go nowhere else.

Thanks for an amazing job." "This is an extremely intelligent and agile web design firm. Simply beautiful creative work. The Coding Studio quickly analysed our complex material and was responsive to our preferences. We are thrilled to have found The Coding Studio." "The Coding Studio has done outstanding work on every web development project they have worked on and continue to provide excellent service.

They are always willing to do whatever it takes to meet deadlines. I have absolutely no reservations recommending The Coding Studio for any work involving web applications." "I am extremely happy with The Coding Studio's work on my project. The ability to turn ideas into reality is a special one. They worked with me every step of the way to make things work correctly.

They were able to help me get a professional quality product on a reasonable budget. Very happy with the outcome!" "The Coding Studio quickly embraced my ideas, added great suggestions and gave me many choices on look, feel and usability.

Also presented them with a very short time window to go-live and they went above and beyond to accommodate my timeline. End result is just what I wanted, when I needed it."
