If your customers aren't happy with your work, and more importantly their finished project what's the point? I am proud of my work and proud to say my clients are too.
I used to have a website that I felt served my needs in my business until my wife pointed out to me that I was completely out of date. I have a favourite jazz guitar player named Lee Ritenour who I have become an acquaintance with and has a outstanding up to date website. I asked his staff who designed his site and they gave me David's name and number. I now can say that my site is up to date and have received many complements on it. Dave was very quick in responding and from the time of contact, my new site was up and running within several weeks time. He is truly the best in his field. - Jim Filippone, allstaraerial.com
I have a website designed to showcase the digital photography I've created over the last decade. Dave became the man of the hour when the previously developed website I had been struggling with for months ran into a wall of functional problems. The waiting for changes seemed interminable. Not so now! The gallery system Dave has developed unfolds conceptual envelopes into an unlimited number of galleries and sub-galleries - perfect for illustrating biological taxonomy studies, time/place series and detail trees for examples of a particular phenomenon.
Unlike most photo gallery websites mine has horizontally scrolling thumbnails. A set of seven to nine thumbs reveal seven to nine images opening one at a time before a new set is opened. Alternatively, all the images can be opened one at a time using the navigation above the image - without moving the cursor. Galleries can be composed of an unlimited number of images. Each gallery has a selectable introduction page.
The administration panel he incorporated allows me to change almost every photograph on any page and almost every phrase of text on the website myself. All I have to do to upload a photograph is upload the largest version viewable and the gallery script takes care of the rest. Whole groups of photos can be uploaded with a stroke or two. The thumbnails are large and sharp without unnatural constraints on dimensions. Any photo or thumbnail can be easily replaced with an updated edit if so desired.
Dave has demonstrated professionalism and expertise in giving this customer what he wanted. My previous website has been redeveloped for much, much better functionality, speed and organization. I've found the inevitable tweaking of the site to be quite timely with design changes and changes to changes being well received, patient and agreeably and helpfully worked out. I highly recommend Dave if a reliable and exquisite custom website is the order of the day. Tim Jones - earthlightimagery.com
As a marketing firm, we work with a lot of technology experts throughout the country. Finding Dave, though, was like finding the needle in the haystack. Dave is the real deal when it comes to SEO. He understands the high-level code strategies that drive search engine rankings as well as the little details that add up to big results. I highly recommend Dave for any company with aggressive organic search goals. - Justin Spring, Co-Founder of Adept Marketing.
I've used several developers who said they knew SEO but they didn't, so far only Dave has delivered real results and substantially increased traffic. - JT. Kreager, owner NextHunt.com
I've worked with Dave and his team now for 3 years on my new concept/database/website - SingerExpress.com. Dave has been responsive and understands what I explain to him in 'lay-terms' and easily converts that into technology! Dave was able to understand my concept and get it live and on-line! I've now been able to realize my vision and dream for my innovative new website the national singers database: SingerExpress.com, and a great part of that is thanks to Dave and his team. My idea was complex and Dave rose to the occasion; my singers database/website works exactly as I conceived it. Our latest enhancements to the site were just made this week - it was a smooth and easy transition from the test site to the live site. Thanks Dave, from all of us at SingerExpress.com

Dave's response to my initial contact was immediate and his continuing attention to detail, follow-up and problem solving throughout the project was unending. In fact, 6 years later his response and commitment to changes or additions to the application continues in the same generous spirit. My project was a complex integration of three diverse database formats, replete with poorly entered information and unprofessionally conceived structures, into a single efficient web based application and data tracking system. The interface is user friendly both for public entry of information and our in-house search and retrieve purposes. This was not a simple project and Dave handled it with technical proficiency, focus, patience and humor throughout and beyond. If you want personal attention and responsiveness, you cannot do better.

I just wanted to take a moment and thank Dave Dalton and his staff for the redesign they did for my insurance agencies web site.
Several years ago, I had a relative of mine design our old website. For him it was an assignment for school, and for me it did its initial purpose of getting my business on the internet. But as time passed, it began to show both its age and its lack of professionalism. So I went out to find other options.
The places that I found were more focused on selling me what they thought I needed, and not how my business actually functioned. As far as the pricing was concerned, the rates given rivaled my annual yellow page rates. I felt that all these other places wanted to do was to upsell and not help me sell.
Then through an internet site, I met Dave and learned of his services. We had many telephone and email exchanges on the site design and purpose. In talking with Dave, I felt that he was trying to do what was best for my business and its bottom line. He took the time to listen to my needs, and designed the site to fit those needs.
His opinions were both frank and honest. They were geared to make my site look professional. Dave was more interested in my bottom line than his. And the final effort shows that attention to customer detail.
I am glad that I found out about Dave and his design service. I would not hesitate to recommend him to any business owner looking for a professional web site.
Sincerely, Timothy King - CEO Adoniram Insurance Agency Inc adoniraminsurance.com
Dave, thank you for doing a great job on my website! The price was right and the service was great also. I highly recommend you and WILL recommend you. Matt Motta, Motta Brickwork Inc.
We have been working with Dave for many years now. He has put together several versions of Lee's sites over the years and everyone is extremely pleased with the artistic and technical abilities he created. We have received much positive feedback on the website from fans and staff members alike. Lee has enjoyed a seamless, long distance rapport with him and and is able to easily convey his desires for the website. Dave has an amazing ability to translate that into something spectacular for the website. Lee Ritenour and his staff and fans are very pleased with the work. - Lee Ritenour staff, LeeRitenour.com
As we all know, it is very difficult in these times to have a job well done. My expectations when I hire someone is that they do the job for me as whole hearted as I would do for myself. I expect the most current and thorough knowledge, promptness, ability to listen to what I want, paitience to explain things to me I do not understand, honesty and value for my money. I have found in Dave Dalton all these qualities and would like to commend him on a final result far beyond my expectations!
Thank you Dave! - Denene Dobbratz leartofshopping.com
Allow me a moment to introduce myself. My name is Theresa Judd, and I am the owner of A Permanent Solution: Permanent Cosmetics by Theresa. I am a small business owner. I have been in business since September of 2000. In the fast paced world of business owners there are 2 things you must have, talent, and a professional image. I had acquired the talent after proper training but I did not have a professional image that truly represented me, and my business. Thanks to the expertise of David Dalton I now have that. He created a website for me that truly encompassed what my business was all about. I can't begin tell you what a difference it's made having a fully functional, & beautiful website. I have noticed a tremendous increase in business and client respect. Dave didn't just stop there... he also submitted my site to all the search engines, as well as kept track on how I am doing in the rankings of those search engines. All I can say is it was money well spent. THANK YOU!! - Theresa Judd, PermanentCosmeticsByTheresa.com
When an organization decides to have a website built it is important that the web designer takes time to really get a feel for what the organization is all about, how the business works, etc. Then, it's helpful if the designer can act more like a consultant to the business and use his/her knowledge and experience to make valuable recommendations for the website. It's also essential that a webmaster make site changes in a timely way. Dave does all this and more. I was also impressed with how quickly my site was listed on search engines when I queried several key words. This is a tribute to Dave's Optimizing skills. He is also willing to teach you how to update portions of your site if you chose to be able to do that. - Lisa Eichholzer-Walker, General Manager, To The Max, ToTheMax1.com
