Over the last month or so, both of us have scratched our heads figuring out how to move our blog from Typepad to WordPress, and in the process redesign the site. After a lot of research, tinkering, and a huge helping hand from a company called Foliovision who helped us with the transfer, we’re now safe in our new, Wordpress-hosted home. Biggest thanks to Alec, Martin, and everyone over at Foliovision.
Alec is one of the most creative people I have ever met.
He is an expert in on-line marketing. Alec’s unparelled knowledge of the web has had a direct impact on my firms profitability. Alec is also very trustworthy and reliable and he and his firm deliver top line results.
Foliovision is really a client oriented company. For everyday stuff, the communication works very well. If I’m really stuck on something you really help me right away. Your instructions are always easy to follow. Any time I ask for a change or find a small problem, I just mention it and it is immediately fixed.
Alec and Peter were able to take our specifications and blend them with a responsive communication system, meeting the needs of our timeline. Foliovision is definitely one of the top level companies in the internet technology environment today and is a pleasure to work with.
I was looking for help with transferring my site from Typepad to WordPress. During my search I found a Foliovision blog post about how to move from Typepad to WordPress and contacted them about some help moving my site. The whole design process came along after that and it was absolutely wonderful. I love the work that you guys did.
You did everything what we needed to be done and provided extra support when we needed it. That was great. I would especially like to mention Martin, he was amazing. Always fast and always responded to me within 24 hours or less.
Even as a freelancer, your Typepad to WordPress service is definitely worth the investment. For people who have a business, it is a clear choice. I spent a lot of time debating whether I will pay for help with the move. Typepad doesn’t make it easy to move everything over, and your service was flawless so it was a worthy choice!
I recommend you to colleagues regularly. I had a great experience. Overall I am pleased with everything. This is very good when you are dealing with an online company and you guys should be really proud.
When Network Solutions destroyed my weblog (1.5 million words, years of work), were it not for a backup at Foliovision, I would have lost the whole thing. Foliovision quickly put my site back together. Foliovision has earned my undying gratitude. Highly recommended for anyone thinking of making the transition from TypePad to WordPress.
I owe a HUGE THANK YOU to the folks at Foliovision. Alec Kinnear and his team were unbelievably fabulous from the very start. They were always responsive, incredibly patient with all of my questions, and did a great job of soothing my fears…The process couldn’t have happened more smoothly and I couldn’t be more happy with their work. They even sent me a shirt as a thank you! I still can’t believe they did what they did for the price that they charged me.
Last summer I transitioned CafeHayek.com from Typepad to WordPress with the help of a great little company called Foliovision. Their service turns the otherwise difficult process of leaving SixApart’s Typepad into a relatively painless one.
When I have tech issues with the blog or changes/enhancements I get immediate service. That was never the case with TP and the only thing ever resolved was when the blog was down hard or messed up in other ways. No suggested improvements ever got implemented. Now I can just have my own improvements done the way I want them when I want them.
I can say without hesitation that on balance, Alec & Martin are among the best professionals I have ever worked with.
We contacted Foliovision because you had very specific knowledge of the conversion process from Typepad to WordPress, and I didn’t want to do it myself. Our goal was to move our platform from Typepad to WordPress, getting that data moved without much hassle and the work done by Foliovision certainly contributed to doing that in a timely manner. It definitely saved time, as far as the time it would have required me to do it, therefore allowing us to get to Wordpress sooner.
I contacted Foliovision because the article you guys had about how to move a site from Typepad to WordPress was really well done. It was clear you know what you’re doing. The migration work went smoothly, the recommendation about hosting was good and the site design turned out fantastic. The visitors like it, the site looks much better and our traffic went way up after we made the change.
I was looking for a service to move my very own blog Andertoons from Typepad to WordPress when I found Foliovision. Every bit of work done by Alec, Martin and the others was fantastic. I couldn’t be satisfied more; the conversion process was very easy with them and also very professional. After I made the changes, my search engine results were far better and the traffic went up considerably.
Having worked with Foliovision on numerous projects, I can honestly say it is great to collaborate with them. I really enjoy working with the owner, Alec – he has a good mind for site architecture and maintains a very honest and straightforward approach that I appreciate. I have worked closely with Viktor and Martin as well and appreciate their skill set and attention to detail. With difficult challenges, Foliovision come up with a choice of good alternative approaches instead of saying it’s not possible.
My web designer picked Foliovision for Blogspot conversion to WordPress, as well as the recipe design and optimization, for my site, www.FineCooks.com. I was very pleased with the professional services they provided. Their team significantly improved my website’s overall function and form, as well as immediately brought in additional traffic.
Foliovision did a fantastic job moving my site beyondvc.com from Typepad to Wordpress. The new graphics and layout were just what I wanted and most importantly they preserved all of my old links and my Google rankings. Foliovision were professional and worked quickly. My visitors love the updated site; it is cleaner, simpler and looks modern.
I was working on a blog redesign for a client. After researching how to transfer a TypePad blog to WordPress, I found that it was far more complicated than I imagined. After a quick Google search, I found Foliovision, who had perfected the Type-to-Wordpress process. Using their service, I was able to sit back and focus on the design aspects of the blog while Foliovision transferred the content.
It was our luckiest chance to connect with Foliovision. Our site now looks fantastic, our customers find it very easy to navigate. Finally we have the website which we are proud of! I really can’t say enough good things about working with Foliovision.
Alec is just fantastic, Zdenka is just incredible, I just could not have been happier with my experience! Alec did everything to stick to the original timetable and Foliovision completed the project within budget
I made my own research on real estate sites in my region and picked the top two real estate sites I could find on the web. Then I realized that they were both done by the same company. I was so impressed with these two sites Foliovision had done that I decided to contact them to work on the project of my new site ILoveToronto.com.
I was frustrated with moving my blog BrandingBlog.com from Typepad to Wordpress, so I did a Google search and found Foliovision’s service. It would be very time consuming and difficult if I was going to do it myself, but Foliovision moved my website to a platform I had more control over without me having to figure it out.
I decided to contact Foliovision when a colleague recommended them after I had a security problem in the United States and I didn’t want a company from the US to help me with the transfer to WordPress. The Cooperation was definitely good and Foliovision did a great job with my site.
We have been working with Foliovision for years now and we like Foliovision. They deliver smart service working on the internet. They understand the internet. The work done by them is excellent!
Foliovision was recommended to us by Toronto Realtor Julie Kinnear because we were looking for someone to revamp our website and build a new inventory management system, which would make our work easier. The old inventory system was horrible and didn’t help us at all. With Foliovision, we got a great new website and a new, very good custom inventory system.
When I first started blogging back in ’05 I was a bit confused by WordPress, so I opted for TypePad. TypePad has been easy to use, but I’ve enviously watched WordPress evolve into a far superior platform. My anxiety level increased as its parent company, Six Apart, was sold to a new owner. The thought that some new owner of TypePad might one day shut it down was frightening. But so was the idea that in moving to WordPress, I might jeopardize my content and traffic. Fortunately I found Foliovision – and here’s three reasons why I can highly recommend their work:
When we needed help converting our legacy Typepad blogs over to WordPress, I contacted Alec at Foliovision. These conversions have a reputation for being difficult, but Foliovision was able to handle each one without issue. Even though there was a significant time difference between Europe and LA, Alec’s team made themselves available.
One of the compelling factors in selecting Foliovision versus other providers was, when I contacted some of the other providers, their response was not as professional, they acted more like maybe single individuals that were trying to do some business on the side or something, so, they said some of the right things, but they didn’t have a process in place, and I’m very process-oriented. Also looking through the references on the Foliovision site, I recognized a few websites that I have known and respect and follow like Andertoons.
I was looking to migrate from Typepad to WordPress, because I think WordPress has got much better support, much better plugins, and it’s better to work with. So I was looking for people who had experience in doing the migration when an internet search came up with Foliovision offering their service.
I had a friend who recommended Foliovision to me, because I wanted to migrate my site elizabethesther.com from Typepad to WordPress. It would have been just too much work for me to do it on my own, so I went with Foliovision and the cooperation turned out to be great! Foliovision worked really fast and kept me regularly updated with the progress of the works. That was great, I just loved knowing how far along we were. I think it was great all around and that it’s a fantastic service that Foliovision offers.
I had wanted to move my Typepad blog to WordPress for years but it was so beyond my technical skills. It seemed like an impossible task. I pretty much googled “Typepad to WordPress… help!” and luckily I found you guys. I was so excited to find out such a thing existed! The result was a painless, simple transition from Typepad to WordPress. All the links worked, the images were moved and now the blog is a joy to update. The customer service was fantastic – everything was explained clearly.
I needed to move Informed Comment to a hosting service that would be able to handle my bandwidth so Foliovision set me up and the move was accomplished with minimum disruption. There were big demands on the server from my site and Foliovision made sure that there were no outages. They have also done a re-design of the basic outlook of the site which people like; it has a nice, clean look to it. I would recommend Foliovision without a doubt; they really have helped the site to fulfill more of its potential.
Foliovision brought a level of professionalism to the look and functionality of my sites that had exceeded anything that preceded it. Working with Foliovision has been a pleasure–they are totally professional, competent, imaginative, efficient and attentive. Foliovision seems like a 24/7 operation. Alec and Martin in particular are fantastic. I couldn’t be happier. I would recommend you highly for absolutely anybody.
As I transitioned my blog from WordPress.com to WordPress.org, my webdesigner OMSH recommended Foliovision. OMSH and Foliovision worked together seamlessly to upgrade my site; they made it run faster and created a more user-friendly environment for my readers. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Foliovision; they’ve responded quickly to my concerns and their prices are reasonable.
I was petrified to make the move from Typepad to WordPress. I had over 1,000 blog posts and over 10,000 comments. Not to mention the back links. I couldn’t afford for anything to go wrong or get lost.
So I put it off for months. But when I heard about Foliovision and saw the size of some of the blogs they’d already converted, I was ready to take the risk.
After inheriting a horribly organized Joomla sports club site and struggling to operate it for two months, I concluded that it was time to junk the whole site and start over. As I looked online for discussions of Joomla vs other choices, I came across Alec’s blog post, which was by far the clearest and most incisive. Looking through Foliovision’s large portfolio of page designs and testimonials convinced me that they would do a good job.
Reading Alec’s blog post about moving from Typepad to WordPress was my first encounter with Foliovision. Since I wanted true experts to work on my website, I decided to contact the company and the result was a welcome surprise.
The whole investment was totally worth the money and these guys are top of the list if such situation comes up again. And if I hear from somebody wanting to do the same, I’ll be sure to recommend them.
