"Setting up a website was a daunting task which lurked on my to-do list for ages. I didn’t know where to start. One conversation with Rob and a few emails with content and images later, and hey presto! He made it all really easy. Highly recommended." – Audrey, Dogs Life Books
"Finding someone to develop and produce a professional website without spending fortunes is tricky. Rob has been a pleasure to deal with, kept everything simple when I tried to complicate things (!) and I know, due to how the site looks and feels, has added to the sales of my book and is a powerful part of my marketing strategy." – Roger Wilson-Crane, author
"Rob has the patience of a saint. I came to him with no knowledge about websites. He guided me through the process, was easy to contact and very swift in responding to queries. He exceeded my expectations even including my own artwork in the background screens.” – Sue Trusler, author
"Honestly I'm really grateful for the valuable advice as Rob absolutely calmed me down and listened to everything I needed. He went above and beyond and any changes needed throughout we liaised and he would get it done. The website he created for me excelled every expectation. Without a doubt I would recommend him to anyone that would like a website built for them. He really does take the stress out of it." – Paul Underwood, author
"Rob is the answer to your prayers when it comes to building a great-looking and functional website for your small business. He takes all the hassle away and delivers, every time. I have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone. One of the best decisions you'll make!" – Jill Morris, author
