Meet James Shiner of Yelling Mule in Seaport

Today we’d like to introduce you to James Shiner.

James, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
As a serial entrepreneur I’ve been running businesses since I was seven years old, my first being a lemonade stand of course. When I was around 11 years old my neighbor got AOL and I saw a website for the first time. I can’t really explain why but instead of thinking how cool this was (it was really cool) all I could think about was what made those websites work and how they were built. I had always been into computers but it took seeing the World Wide Web for it to really click. I started out on AngelFire, GeoCities etc. but quickly realized there was much more potential if I learned how to actually write the code. Two short years later I had my first paid gig building a website for a car detailing company and I was hooked. Throughout the years I’ve had a number of other startups (record label, real estate video website, social networking site) but through all that I always had a few clients that I was building websites for on the side. In 2010 I decided it was time to focus on my website business full time and Yelling Mule was born. Throughout the years I learned that the most successful sites were the ones that not only looked great but had an overall goal such as lead generation, buying a product, etc. When Yelling Mule started out our mission was to build profitable websites that deliver results, and to this day we still stand by that statement. We’ve won over 30 awards for our designs but the best feedback is when a client tells us their business doubled in the first few months after their new site went live.

Has it been a smooth road?
Yelling Mule hasn’t had any serious struggles over the years, but it’s never completely smooth sailing. In our industry being up to date on the latest technologies is very important, so we always need to make sure that our service offerings include the latest features such as mobile responsive, search engine optimization, etc.

Let’s touch on your thoughts about our city – what do you like the most and least?
Boston has a number of great features including size (it’s a quick Uber ride to visit a client), amazing growth and a growing tech scene. My only issue with the city is lack of parking, but now that I live here I may be able to get rid of my car.
