“I had the opportunity to work with James for a critical SEO project for my business website. James is very knowledgeable and communicated exceptionally well throughout the engagement The outcome of his efforts are already starting to show increased traffic and more client interest. I would highly recommend James to companies that require similar professional assistance.” – Larry Fish, President, GreenSearch
“James is an extraordinary teacher. When I was hired at TrustWorkz, I knew little to nothing about content marketing and social media marketing. His intuition about both is rare, and with his daily guidance, I feel like I have the tools to navigate through the myriad of what works and what doesn’t. His creativity, passion and energy are infectious and I thoroughly enjoyed working with him.” – Ashley Velez, Lead WebOp, TrustWorkz
“It’s a shame I could only choose three of the top attributes for James Ball. All the choices apply to the not only the work ethic but the results he gets for his clients. His integrity in business is above and beyond normal standards and the results of his work have improved my bottom line in my own business. Having worked with other digital marketing people, he is my go-to guy for anything involving getting my business more exposure in my hyper-local market. He is a unique individual that thinks outside the box and brings innovative ideas to any project he tackles.” – Sandra Levin, Owner, Orbit Skate Center
“James is a trailblazer and was using social media – the right way – before the majority of the world was even considering it. He has the ability to identify new trends in technology and quickly determine how they can be used by a business to grow and support their brand. James is always giving back to others individually and through supporting community groups. He has a strong entrepreneurial spirit and uses his background starting, selling and running new ventures to advise other business owners on the pitfalls, challenges and opportunities along their journey.” – Eric Holtzclaw, Chief Executive Officer, User Insight
“Words can not adequately describe how valuable James has been to me as a mentor, a leader, and an inspiration. Personally, he has brought tremendous value to my growth as a professional and individual. James brings a breath of fresh air to our company, where he is always a beacon of innovation and positive thinking. His attitude towards getting things done, and having fun while doing it, is contagious. James has not only successfully built a great program at TrustWorkz, but an amazing culture as well. His thirst for knowledge, staying ahead of the game, and service to others before himself are just a few of his indispensable qualities that we can simply not do without. I count myself very lucky to work beside such a well rounded individual.” – Kevin Ekmark, Director, TrustWorkz, Inc.
“I have worked with James Ball for about two years on various projects. He is professional and extremely knowledgeable. He is dependable and provides outstanding service and the end result is always much better than I even imagined.” – Alan May – Owner On Eagles Wings
