Thank you so much!
Inside Out Entrepreneur
I would recommend him in an instant...
Cesar is totally awesome to work with….
People like Cesar are rare these days. He is the real deal. He is knowledgeable, easy to work with, fast at replying to emails (and at doing the work). He is also one of the nicest professionals I have worked with. But for Cesar, I would not be where I am now. His methods are seriously client focused and he has a really commercial outlook. Not only does he do the job but he is happy to FULLY explains how he did it often using a video recording to show me which is so incredibly helpful.
I love working with Cesar. I have worked with scores of people over the last 10 years and Cesar is No.1. He is the first person I turn to when I have a techie issue and I need a fast, honest and accurate reply. I would recommend him in an instant and hope I will continue to work with him for all my projects in coming years.
The Active Marketer
Having him on the team brings a lot of peace of mind...
Having Cesar on the team brings a lot of peace of mind. I know that if I need something Cesar will be there with the answer. Everything gets done quickly and gets done right the first time.
I love working with Cesar, he is a creative problem solver who makes my life easier.
Health on the Homefront
He came highly recommended...
Cesar blew me away with the membership site he developed for me. I knew I needed tech help but he gave me so much more. Not only is my site aesthetically pleasing, it’s intuitive and I get the best complements from everyone that sees it.
Cesar came highly recommended by some of the most successful membership site owners and now I know why. I can't wait to work with him again!
He changed the game for us...
Cesar is an incredible talent and resource for us! His ability to see the vision of where projects are headed and make them happen is fantastic! We spent years… and wasted a lot of money on people who said they could do a lot when they would end up contributing so little.
Cesar changed the game for us! Now, with his help, we get more done in one day than we used to get done in a month. We couldn't be more thrilled to call him part of our team! I highly recommend Cesar Pinto!
Tomorrow Today Global
He has totally invested in the success of our site...
I can't recommend Cesar enough to anyone looking for help with developing their membership site. Cesar has totally invested in the success of our site, spending hours researching and understanding our needs to begin with, providing us with such valuable advice from his own experience and guiding us through the development of the site step by step.
His work is impeccable, from both thinking the systems through, the design side and finding solutions to our different requirements. I can't sing his praises enough, it's been a privilege to work with him and learn so much along the way. 200% happy with our end product!

Get him now if you want peace of mind...
Initially I had reservations about adding yet another monthly subscription my list. Would it be practical to spend more money on something you could tinker around with on your own? I resisted at first, and when things would go wrong (which will happen when you are online) my customers suffered and I would waste time trying to provide a quick-fix solution.
After retaining Cesar's help for my website I realized it was the best decision I had ever made! Cesar is extremely familiar with subscription based sites, knowledgeable with Wordpress, and extremely responsive to any tech problems that I have encountered. Running one of the top and fastest-growing membership sites in my industry with about a thousand members means that I cannot afford to experience any downtime or tech problems.
Without exaggeration I can say that there has not been any emergency Cesar could not promptly diagnose and provide a solution for. The peace of mind I have knowing that Cesar is able to quickly respond, diagnose and give a solution to any tech problem is why I have been able to scale my business and double my income. Get him now if you want peace of mind so you can focus on growing the business and not tinker with the tech side of things.
Animal Training Fundamentals
What a difference he made!...
What a difference Cesar made! Now my site is customized for a user friendly and engaging membership experience. Cesar was fantastic with his step by step instructions, availability and positive approach. Thanks to Cesar, I am proud to have a site with great content delivered in an attractive, easy to use format.
Business on Purpose
His end goal being the realization of your vision...
We have a vision to liberate business owners from the chaos of working IN their business. We needed a powerful tool that allowed business owners to walk through a step-by-step online roadmap that provided them the equipment to spend time working ON their business vs. spending so much chaos time working "IN" their business. We brought a concept to Cesar and within a very short amount of time he had built the stage for what is the Business On Purpose Roadmap. Cesar works off of principle and thoughtfulness with his end goal being the realization of your vision. This guy is LEGIT!
He offered solutions that we wouldn't have considered...
Cesar went above and beyond for us. I'm so impressed by his knowledge in the area of memberships. We initially hired him for a one-time tech fix and decided to go with his monthly plan for on-going support, and I'm so glad we did. He offered solutions that we wouldn't have considered, and he optimized our existing setup.
I couldn't be happier with the results.
I thought I knew what I was doing, but...
Cesar has helped me get my first membership site ready to launch. I thought I knew what I was doing, but Cesar showed me important changes to make in the way I was setting things up. This made big improvements to my site.
Cesar recorded quick videos to help me see exactly what to do. He is super responsive - very quick to get back to me when I had questions. I'm sure I will work with him again on my next project. Highly recommended!
Kaliopi Nikitas Coaching
Your only regret will be not hiring him sooner...
Cesar Pinto is hands-down the best tech developer and tech support I've ever worked with and am so thankful to have found him! I hired Cesar to help me put together, and launch, my membership site as well as to revamp an existing site and his experience, professionalism, ability to communicate and results blew me away. I really didn't have the money, but I took a chance anyhow as everyone in the Membership Academy highly recommended him and boy am I glad I did. There's no way my membership site would have the smooth integration, ease-of-use, and professional look it has without his help. He's worth every penny I spent and more!
What I love about Cesar, in addition to delivering what he promises, is that he is such a personable, easy-to-talk to, and fun guy to work with. If you are thinking of working with Cesar, do it. Your only regret will be not hiring him sooner.
Morning Tech Meeting
I can not recommend him enough for your technical needs...
I would like to take a moment to thank Cesar Pinto from the bottom of my heart for the work he has done for myself and my business partner, Larry. We found Cesar when we were just starting to work on creating a membership site for an idea I had. The problem was, all of our experience was in running blue collar service business. We had no skills when it came to building a website and starting a membership site.
Cesar was invaluable with his skills and experience to get us up and running. More importantly, Cesar was very patient with us as we fumbled through learning a new industry. He was always kind, helpful, and amazingly available. We never would have gotten off the ground were it not for Cesar.
I can not recommend Cesar enough for your technical needs. He is the best.
Get Messy Art
Sometimes it's less about skill and more about the person...
I have experience with Cesar purely with IP Board, and not with any membership software. So I can't speak to anything about that side. When I checked out his site, I noticed a few testimonials from some Member Site Academy individuals. I think he gets a lot of his business through here, which I think is good because he's always really helpful and free with sharing his knowledge. I have heard SO MANY great things about him.
I run an art membership with over 2000 members. I had to move the forums (self hosted IP Board, which I highly recommend) to the new domain. I was really tired from moving everything else myself (business partner is not tech minded at all), and so I messaged Cesar asking to pay him to move it for me. He replied saying that he'd just guide me through and live chat with me through the process and take no money from me (!!!). He kept following up with me because he knew I had a deadline and asking if it was okay and if I needed any help. Eventually I told him that I just want to pay him and not think about it. He was able to do it the very next day. Which he did! Everything was smooth! it all worked out - he chatted to my hosting company on my behalf, I gave him logins and he just did everything. He kept me up to date at all times through Slack. He worked on it until it was done, and until it was right. If I had any questions about things (even some that were not about the forums), he would tell me everything he knew, or he would research it and let me know.
I can't express how grateful I am for him. He helped me out when I was at the end of my tech rope. I could have done the move over myself but the money I paid him was SO WORTH IT.
That's kind of a story, but it might give some insight into what working with him is like. Happy to answer any questions you have. With online business, sometimes it's less about skill and more about the person. Even the best person to someone might not be a perfect fit for someone else.
HR Inner Circle
One of the best suppliers I have ever used...
I contacted Cesar about a month ago. He has built a complete members' site for me, using MemberPress as its engine. He turned the whole thing around in a few days, and has spent the last three weeks patiently making all the changes I keep asking for, and recording videos for me on how to update content and change things myself. He is one of the best suppliers / website designers I have ever used (and I have used a lot).
The Declutter Hub
Best business decision we have ever made...
We had heard great things about Cesar already but when we heard he was based the other side of the world and all communication would be done electronically, we were a little nervous. We absolutely needn't have worried. Working with Cesar on two website builds has been one of the best business decision we have ever made. Customer service is second to none, communication is timely, comprehensive and friendly and the quality of his work is fantastic. He was so patient with us and nothing is too much trouble. If only all service providers would work like this!
British Bodyguard Association
It's official; Superman wears Cesar Pinto Pyjamas!
That's no overstatement, Cesar has been a virtual superhero with the assistance he's provided in helping rebuild my membership association. Creating a membership site doesn't come without a cost, but the money spent on employing Cesar's services was, by far, the best investment I made.
What might have been four months of hard work, with lots of trial and error, was calmly accomplished in little over a week. But more than just the timed saved, the greatest benefit for working with Cesar is the reassurance of knowing that everything is in safe hands. And, if you encounter any difficulty, at any time, Cesar is there to help you find a clear and effective solution.
If you're building an online business, and especially if it involves a membership site, then I wholeheartedly recommend the services of Cesar Pinto.
The Reinvention Institute
He cares about your business...
Cesar is one of the best developers I've ever worked with, and I've worked with a lot! He's helpful, patient, and an expert on all things related to Thrive Architect. Cesar's contribution goes beyond simply delivering a project; he cares about your business and thinks like a true partner.
I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone interested in building a site using Thrive.
He is the kind of person that will be there when you need him...
Cesar and I have worked on multiple projects. He is one of few consultants that I have worked with that I would recommend. My experience with consultants has not always been positive. Many consultants come in with predetermined ideas and solutions without listening to the needs of the client or how their business works. Many times, they just want to repeat what they have always done in the past. Many implement and leave without taking into consideration whether their client is really equipped to maintain the software, components, and website. Running a successful website is more than having a domain name and some web pages.
Cesar impressed me even before we started working together. In order to get to know him, I sent him multiple emails with numerous questions. I was surprised and impressed that he actually read and responded to each question. His responses were in depth and thoughtful.
After working with Cesar on multiple projects, I can highly recommend his services to others. He has impressed me by partnering up with me to implement my concepts by using the considerable and broad expertise that he has. He not only thinks through my requests, but he also suggests many things that I have not considered. He has been very responsive to my requests or problems. He takes ownership in what he does.
Cesar has been very generous with his knowledge and expertise. He created tutorials and documentation to walk me through how to do things. His videos have been essential in understanding and learning the in's and out's of many of the technologies that we used.
Cesar's contributions included hosting selection, design, plugins, implementation, optimization, membership options, landing pages, forums, training, Thrive Themes, Active Campaign, and many other aspects of starting up, maintaining, and enhancing my websites. A consultant is not only important at the start, but also after you are up and running and encounter the issues of having a website. Cesar is the kind of person that will be there when you need him.
Canine Education Academy
He always has the answer...
Cesar is a wizard. There is no other word for it. He always has the answer when it comes to the complexities of building a membership site and forum. Cesar has been instrumental in this journey and I'm not sure I would ever have been as successful without his guidance. He is an incredibly clear communicator and he makes everything stress-free and easy. Such a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended!
Sky Ocean Sand
Efficient, reliable, and helpful...
Running a busy gym whilst trying to set up a sophisticated membership website is a daunting task. Having Cesar doing all the technical work has made this a reality. Cesar is efficient, reliable and helpful in every way imaginable.
I have worked with a lot of people over the course of my life in business and Cesar's professionalism is at the top of the list. I cannot recommend him highly enough.
Speech is Sweet
He truly made my vision come to life...
Cesar was instrumental in the development of my membership site! He truly made my vision come to life and I'm absolutely in love with the website he created. Cesar spent countless hours developing tutorials to equip me with the ability to maintain my website independently. This was truly invaluable, as I had very little website experience. Cesar went above and beyond to answer my questions and ensured that my website ran smoothly during its launch. I truly recommend Cesar – he's patient, reliable, and his expertise is unmatched! I can't imagine working with anyone else!
I would highly recommend his services...
Working with Cesar is an absolute pleasure. He managed to create the solution we requested while replying to every single question in a timely manner and providing videos with his explanation so we can apply those changes/solutions in the future by ourselves in case we want to do so. I would highly recommend his services and we definitely want to keep working with him in the future!
Yoga with Melissa
We will definitely recommend him to our friends...
Thank you so much Cesar for adding search function to our memberoni themed wordpress site. This was technically beyond our capacity and you were able to support us in preparing our site so that it was compliant with the functionality of search even before you added it. Our members are super happy to be able to search our large video library now. We will definitely reach out to Cesar again and recommend him to our friends.
Perfect Hair Health
I plan on using him for all of my membership work...
When building out a membership site, you're bound to run into some snags. For me, these problems always seemed so easy to fix (i.e., changing the padding between menu items, styling registration pages with CSS, etc.). Yet they consistently turned into multiple-day or deals... where I'd be stuck leveraging Google search until 4am most nights and communicating with less-than-helpful plugin 'support teams'.
I hired Cesar, and within twenty minutes, he solved two issues I'd spent the last 72 hours trying to fix. I plan on using him for all of my membership work moving forward.
A valuable member of the team, not just a contractor...
Cesar did a fantastic job on my new membership website. His work is such an improvement over what I had before. He made it easy and fun for me to use, easy to teach to my assistants, and easy and enjoyable for my members to navigate. The members are impressed with the site, and that makes me very happy. I had some complex needs for my site, and Cesar really helped me find workable solutions, keeping the big picture in mind. He helpfully set me up with new technical features that make the site more enticing for my members and easier for me to manage, as well as screenshots and short training videos to train me and my assistants on the site admin panel.
I especially appreciated Cesar's contributions to the content-delivery strategy of the site, which helped me decide the most efficient ways to provide my content to members and how to adjust my business model accordingly.
Cesar has been a valuable member of the team, not just a contractor. He cares about the relationship, and he cares about finding the best solution. When he isn't sure of the right course, he goes the extra mile and researches it. He was extremely dedicated and also easy to reach, via Slack, with any questions or for fixes. Also has a warm attitude and good sense of humor - important for those high-pressure times! Would definitely work with him again.
Dental Claim Academy
I only have great things to say about his work...
I have been working with Cesar for almost two months now, and I only have great things to say about his work and friendliness. He has created an entire website for our business. Not only has he been working in the back end of the site, but he has been there to answer any questions that I have. It has been great knowing that I can ask him any questions and get a quick and educated response. I have also asked his opinion on many different aspects of the website.
Cesar also created multiple tutorial videos to show us how to handle everything once we part ways. These tutorials are not generic videos, he has made videos just for us and our website! They have been extremely helpful, especially since I have not had prior experience with WordPress or website building at all.
The last thing I would like to mention is his dedication to finishing the job and doing it well. Not knowing that our contract expired with Cesar, I went and asked him for some advice one morning. First he responded with all the information I needed, then politely let me know that the contract was up. But still offered to help finish what we were doing that day. That shows great character!

Corporate Alley Cat
His patience knows no bounds...
Cesar, I can't thank you enough for the work you did on my membership site. The site looks beautiful, is easy to navigate for my members and easy for me to update and modify. I could not have completed this project without you. Your knowledge of membership sites, user experience and technology was invaluable. It is an understatement to say that you went above and beyond on this project to ensure a successful outcome.
I highly recommend Cesar if you are looking to build a first rate membership site - his patience knows no bounds.
Annuity Agents Academy
You won't go wrong hiring him...
Cesar is outstanding! He's helped us build our membership site from start to finish, including all 3 Levels, email automation, payment integrations - the works! You won't go wrong hiring him!
Lean with Lesley
I would be happy to act as a reference...
I want to say I have really enjoyed working with Cesar. Nothing is ever a problem with Cesar and his response times are always second to none. As we had no experience in developing websites, Cesar was very helpful and guided us all the way with some excellent suggestions and inputs. I initially thought communicating with Cesar via Slack and email would be awkward for a website development but soon found it to be a great resource and a great way to keep track of work that was done and that needs to be done.
I would recommend using Cesar to anybody and would be happy to act as a reference.
Music Entrepreneur Club
He always made himself available...
Cesar was a pleasure to work with. He delivered a quality website in a timely manner and always made himself available to address any concerns we had. We will definitely be working with him in the future.
Grow Your Private Practice
I've been delighted with the service he provides...
Since I've been working with Cesar, I've been delighted with the service he provides. Everything I ask to be done is dealt with so quickly, and he answers all my questions - which there are many! - patiently.

Cesar and Thrive Themes, what a powerful combination...
Cesar and Thrive Themes, what a powerful combination. I was highly impressed with his skills, professionalism and his prompt response. From now on he will be the only designer I work with. A+++
Set to Camp
I truly don't know where I would be...
To think I was contemplating building my membership and public sites myself! I truly don't know where I would be without Cesar. He absolutely exceeded my expectations with two sites I am incredibly proud of. He has been a delight to work with and is always happy to answer all of my questions, whether or not they are related to the project. I also really appreciated his encouragement as well as his guidance and professional advice. Knowing that he has everything covered is incredibly reassuring to me and I recommend him without hesitation.

He provides solid advice and guidance...
Working with Cesar to develop my website was a very collaborative process that resulted in a website I am so excited about! He professionally balanced listening to my needs and wants for the website with providing solid advice and guidance about best practices for conversation and SEO.
Robust Med Compassion
The steady and solid problem-solver...
Cesar is the steady and solid problem-solver I've used for setting up a membership site as well as redesigning my website. He is fast, reliable and has solved all tech problems I've encountered so far. I'd recommend Cesar any time.
Engaging the Feminine
He has a lot of experience and knowledge which he shares very generously...
I am SO grateful to have Cesar on my team. I knew that Thrive Themes was the way to go for me. I wanted to focus on creating content though and the thoughts of having to put my site together on my own felt overwhelming (and a waste of my time).
I could see that blogging would be a foundational piece of my business and I wanted to be able to do that in the most optimized way without having to rely on others. I reached out for help in the Thrive Themes forum and Cesar responded.
With just a domain name and a huge desire to create value for women with fertility challenges, we started out. In no time I had a lovely site. And now I am publishing on a regular basis. We continue to improve it one step at a time but the foundations of a very solid educational business are in place and my skills are growing.
I love working with Cesar. He has a lot of experience and knowledge which he shares very generously. As well as being excellent at the technical and marketing side of things, he has a personable and empowering way about him. He is a wonderful teacher and models beautifully how to create value for his clients! I feel so lucky to have him on my team and can recommend him without hesitation.
Avian Behavior Lab
Speedy, responsive, and did a really lovely job...
The work that Cesar did for my membership website was incredible. He was speedy, responsive, and did a really lovely job. He also made it easy for me to make adjustments that I needed as my site keeps evolving and growing and is so helpful when I have questions. I couldn't be more pleased with his work.

Blu Butterfly Nail Tips
He is there 24/7 ready to help any which way he can...
Cesar has been the most amazing help to me and not only that I feel that I have made a new friend... Cesar is there 24/7 ready to help any which way he can to deliver the answers or actually solve the issue for me. Having Cesar as my mentor has helped me focus on more important areas of my online business and saved me hours and hours of time!!
I hope to be doing more business with Cesar in the future, and appreciate all the time he has put in, in helping me get to where I am today.
