|“Laurie Harris has answered Bikes Blues and BBQ’s need for “all things internet” in a huge way. Her website acumen and artistic eye combine to create a site that any business can use to present the most effective marketing tool imaginable. In the realm of social media, Laurie’s efforts quickly generated over 60,000 Facebook “friends” in a brief time utilizing innovative strategies that we never imagined. So, website presence and social media combined, you have the complete package, guaranteed to increase awareness and, most importantly, sales. We could not be happier with her work.”|
|“In the short time Bikes, Blues, & BBQ has partnered with Aponi Studios, our social media efforts have increased by over 50%, which is tremendous for a four day event once a year! Our Facebook page grows daily and the creation of the blog, Roads to the Rally, has given our fans another interactive platform to share their experiences, thus keeping them more involved in rally news and marketing. One of the most important differences Aponi has made is the improvement of the satisfaction of our sponsors. We have received several compliments from our sponsors about the rally’s social media efforts and rightfully so, as it provides them with not only more exposure, but better impressions to boot.”

|When we purchased our first professional photo shoot from Laurie, we were excited about just getting our pictures done, but lo and behold, she captured much, much more than we could have ever imagined that day. She turned our photo experience into a beautiful story of how much our horses truly mean to us. Her photos also depicted how Twin Springs Equestrian Center is not only our ‘business’ but our opportunity to share our love for horses. After one year of photo sessions at our barn, Laurie created a cumulative slideshow. With the music attached to it, well, it’s just perfect! Not only did my husband and I love it, but everyone at the barn loved it too. Thank you and thank you some more, Laurie, for all you’ve put into this work of art; our website. And thank you for your creative contributions in helping Twin Springs become a special place for all horse lovers!
Cindy and Jimmy Savage.
|“I strongly recommend Laurie Harris and Aponi Studios for any job that requires creativity, quick thinking, great marketing skills and a pleasant demeanor when working with people. I’ve had the pleasure working with Laurie as I have contracted her studio for three websites, a blog, marketing materials, business cards and photography. It has been a long and productive relationship from my perspective.Laurie is extremely adept at communicating her vision on each site in ways that I’d not anticipated, yet soon adopted and embraced. Laurie is efficient and effective in her professional role; any company that hires Laurie will find their money well spent.”|
