I am a creative director working for a national event and promotion company. We had a very distinct vision for two new company websites. They were both big projects and we decided to design and launch both of them at the same time. Both sites had password-protected areas and functionality beyond any regular website. One site was 75-pages, while the other contained a registration component, database, and search and sorting capabilities. Although I could create the “look” of the websites I could not embark on the complicated programming needed to make the sites come to life.
It took months and we put the Fast Forward team to the test. I must say, in the end, it was an “all-hands-on-deck” experience as we approached the deadline and everyone from Fast Forward stayed in constant communication with me to assure we got exactly what we wanted and delivered on time.
We received everything that we planned for and they did not charge us extra for changes, but delivered both sites completely to our satisfaction. I feel like the price was great and we are really happy with both websites. Thanks Again!
World Politics Review was looking for a way to make its content smartphone- and tablet-friendly and was not satisfied with the expensive, complicated solutions that other designers and developers had proposed.
In our first conversation with Fast Forward Marketing, they introduced us to the idea of responsive web design, and it immediately seemed like the right solution for us. Everything Fast Forward Marketing told us about RWD checked out when we ran the concept by other developers we trusted. We proceeded to get a quote from Fast Forward Marketing and a New York-based company that had come highly recommended. FastF's price was significantly better, and the timeline they proposed meant our solution could go live quicker than we expected.
Once the project started, Fast Forward Marketing was very easy to work with, and they followed through on everything that they promised in their proposal. The final product is a website that is optimized for any platform -- desktop, tablet or smartphone -- and one that our users love. Even better, the financial benefits we are reaping from increased subscription sales and savings on native-application licensing and maintenance means this project will pay for itself in a matter of months."

We were “at our wit’s end” and had given up on the hope that we would get what we wanted with regard to our online presence… our decade old website was outdated and needed a new look. Thank goodness we found the team at FastForward marketing who listened to our needs, made appropriate suggestions, charged a fair price and completed work ahead of schedule. Not to mention Pat Floyd, the website designer who must be part mind reader…he made our communication of concept effortless, and produced an exceptional result. I would highly recommend them and plan on using them for all of our web needs going forward, as they have expertise in all areas of design and marketing, keep up the great work guys!

From the beginning of discussions on a website design, Rich of Fast Forward was attentive and helpful in bringing our website to completion in an expeditious manner. The finished design was fresh, one might almost say "refreshing", in completing a design for our flavor and beverage development business that won an Addy Award for design, increasing traffic to our site immediately. I would recommend Fast Forward to any creative business."

Fast Forward Marketing was recommended to me originally to help with the major part of my advertisement for my new business. They helped with ideas on content and layout for my website that were outstanding. The final website for captainkiddfishing.com turned out to be one of the best I have ever seen! Besides that, they're very pleasant to work side by side with and their professionalism is incredible. I would highly recommend their skillful website designing team to anyone! Whether it's your very first website being designed or have had websites before, I know you will be extremely pleased if you choose to work with Fast Forward marketing! You will not regret it,they are awesome!!!"

We have a small company with a limited advertising budget and have wasted money on Google and Yahoo pay per clicks with very disappointing results. Our Company’s website was designed by my son and needless to say he is not a website designer so we needed help.
A representative from Fast Forward Marketing managed to get my attention at a Home Show where I often feature my products. I gave him our website to review and to get back with me on any thoughts of how Fast Forward Marketing could improve our website and help our company capture our share of potential business using the internet.
I am now extremely satisfied with the professional appearance of our website which helps bring credibility to our company in a very positive way. I am also very satisfied with the staff and their level of concern for our company's needs. We will be moving forward with having Fast Forward Marketing implement their plan to propel our company to the top of any web search regarding our business category. "

In today’s world, the web presence of a company is mandatory. It has become a major influence on a potential client’s judgment of the company’s ‘image’. Clients subconsciously determine a company’s solidity, reliability, and maturity based on first impressions from a web site; the internet having become the standard media from which information is gleaned. When we reached the point in our development where we were ready to reach out to a wider audience, we knew that a web site would be an integral part of the plan.
An internet search looking for a local business who could help us led us to Fast Forward Marketing and we decided to work with them. We simultaneously needed brochures, a trade show booth, and a web site to direct people to for more information. The work that the team at Fast Forward Marketing provided us with allowed us to project as mature and professional of an image as we could given the youth of the company, all with a cohesive design theme.
Along the way since teaming up with them we have needed help with several technical issues such as email migration from our old server, which had previously been set up to secure a domain name for the company and provide ourselves with company email addresses. The team was always swift with a response and solution, in a professional and friendly manner.
Although most of our business is not derived from leads made through online advertising, the web site has played a key role in establishing our image projection to the world, and for that we are grateful to Fast Forward Marketing for their artistic and technical expertise in making that happen."
I am the owner/operator of a small, tourism-based business, serving the Tampa Bay area for over 40 years. Like many other business owners who rely on website traffic, I have recently become more aware of the importance of Search Engine Optimization (SEO).
Having become frustrated by my competitors' websites consistently producing better results than mine on various search engines, I decided to look for someone to help my business in this critical marketing area. This is how I found Rich Byrd at Fast Forward Marketing.
We first agreed upon a basic SEO update on my business’ website, and the initial results were nothing short of amazing: My site suddenly jumped to the top of a number of search engine rankings where it had previously been hard to find, while also dominating some search results where it had been completely absent!
At first, I hired Rich only to help with the SEO issues I was having, but soon realized how invaluable his spectrum of marketing knowledge is. Rich has now redesigned and rebuilt my website in order to enhance search engine rankings further, as well as creating a much more attractive, customer-friendly site.
I am still awestruck with the look of my website. I cannot believe I waited even a month to have him redesign it! I cannot find a nicer looking website from any fishing company!
Furthermore, I have consulted? with Rich quite a few times regarding other business issues. Even with the state of economy today, Rich has helped my business realize a significant improvement in revenue in just one quarter!
I consistently find Rich and his team at Fast Forward Marketing practicing the utmost in professionalism and courtesy, and displaying a broad knowledge of business marketing techniques that are ever so important in today's electronic business world. I would highly recommend their services to any business in need of any level of Internet marketing or consulting."
Fast Forward Marketing built our new website from scratch and the results are everything we expected from a thoroughly professional outfit.
Rich and his whole crew were excellent to work with, guiding and coaching us to quickly develop the artistic look that we envisioned. They also had all of the expertise needed to quickly set up our Webstore. I was pleasantly surprised to find our site ranking on page 1 of search results in key local and national desired marketing areas in the second month of operation.
Working with Fast Forward marketing was a pleasant and rewarding experience. I recommend them wholeheartedly."
This website has drawn a wide scale of interest, providing new leads and clients for this specialty development business."
Fast Forward Marketing and my company, Crystal Lake Beverage, Inc, connected from the very first meeting. The ideas for our website proceeded to crystallize from my conception to their demonstration within a very short period. The website portrays our business in a very favorable way, and that is what a business owner wants from a site designer."

I got a lot of response from people saying they loved the site.
The two things I love about it the most is that it has done so much to open, reopen and enhance my communication lines. Plus, when I talk to clients, I can just refer them to my website instead of having to send a whole bunch of pictures.
So, all in all, I’m digging it!
Thanks for all your work and patience."

A website html code clean-up...
I was an artist without a website. So recently I had a web site created for me. I created the art and so forth and had the thing built. I liked it a lot, except there were these bounding boxes around buttons and text that showed up on PCs and should not have been there. Despite many tries, the person who built it was not able to fix it.
Rich Byrd and Pat Floyd of Fast Forward had done the funtalking.com site, which I love, so I called Rich to see if he could help. They not only fixed all the problems, Rich gave me some good suggestions, which I agreed to and he implemented and am now quite satisfied with my site.

From a successful florist...
FFM really helped me to get what I wanted out of a website. Their incredible design team was very patient with me and worked at it until we arrived at what I wanted. They are very service oriented and go out of their way to see that things get done.
The design of the site is beautiful and I’ve gotten several compliments from other professionals in my field. They have told me how easy it is to find and use and that it stands out far more than other sites in this industry.
This site communicates what I wanted it to. Thank You Fast Forward!"
