Client Recommendations & Testimonials

Dr. Sneha Lin, O.D. Owner, Family Eyewear Gallery

“Dijital Media has been our provider for all things web-related including developing our brand identity. Jit has personally designed our logo, website, and multiple advertising campaigns, all of which have been favorably received. Our patients are consistently impressed with our web presence, especially in comparison to other providers in our industry. All of the work has been beyond expectations in both quality and creativity. I would not hesitate to recommend Jit or Dijital Media for any online marketing needs you might have.”

John Watts,Director of National Sales, ROE Company

“I have worked with Jit for over 8 years and he has been my “Guru” of SEO and social media. From the time he developed our first website, based on his DMiMS system, to the consulting he has done since on every aspect of online marketing, he has consistently provided us the tools, the strategy and implementation to help keep us ahead of the pack. His latest work with managing our marketing database and writing a custom app to link our products to this and other social networks is superb. I cannot recommend highly enough the work he continues to do, and the innovative advances he brings to the evolving online marketing platform.”

Cindy Hollenbach, Chief Learning Strategist, C the Difference, LLC

Jit is enthusiastic about everything he is involved in and brings other people into that enthusiasm. He is confident about his abilities, of which there are many, but he has plenty of room to see the value in other people’s skills and viewpoints. In addition, he looks at issues from different angles and finds the most appropriate and cost-effective solutions.”

Robert Church Senior Program Manager, BJC HealthCare

Jit’s ability to understand new technologies, identify the best practice methods for use, and his outstanding ability to organize and communicate the information make him the perfect consultant for any technology-driven solution.”

Mike DeShazo Regional Sales Manager, Hostess Foods International

“Jit developed a web site for our corporation that in my opinion took creativity to a new level. Even after Jit delivered a finished product he still would contact me with new ideas that just pertained to what I was trying to accomplish. His integrity is without question as he was always up front about the whole process and answered each and every question in detail. He was and is always available to help, answer questions or give advice. Total professional!”

Justin Glow, Platform Engineer at Engadget”

Jit is amazing at taking complex problems and turning them into reality. His solutions are elegant and well thought out. He has deep knowledge of all the important platforms, frameworks, and best practices, and I trust he will find the best solution in any given situation.”

Barry Ginsburg, Owner, Midtown Home Improvements”

I would always recommend Jit’s company. He provides great skill and value and his talent cannot be duplicated for twice the price. If you ever hesitated to hire a firm to work on your web site or to create/update an existing one, pick up the phone and call him. You will not regret it. Barry Ginsburg Midtown Home Improvements, Inc. O’Fallon, MO 63366”

Tiffeny Meyers, Social Media Coordinator, Refurbished Office Environments

“We’ve hired Jit back in 2008 for a small website project and have called him back for several other projects since then! Being inexperienced with multimedia and website development, he really held our hand through the process and helpfully and patiently explained every question I had without throwing a lot of industry jargon at me. He is one of the most pleasant and innovative techies I’ve had the pleasure of working with and if we need anything else in the future, we’ll definitely being calling him again!”
