    Testimonials

    Brilliant Digital has been amazing! They provided a very professional and high-quality service. They understand the niche areas to target when building websites, which has helped make our website a Ferrari with a strong engine, rather than something that looks good but doesn’t bring in the clients. Thank you, Brilliant Digital!

    Accounting For Good has been working with BD since late 2018 – starting with a website refresh and snazzy update to our logo. They’ve curated a solid website with great SEO. I can write, but it’s easy to get distracted and forget to write your content, so outsourcing is such a great option. I *love* our BD content writer – it’s a real partnership. She understands our business and gets the tone I want so spot-on that I think she can actually read my mind.

    Brilliant Digital has helped me grow my family business. Once we developed a fully functioning, professional and productive website, we doubled our client base, and we continue to have consistent inquiries. We will definitely be continuing our professional relationship with Brilliant Digital and use their services for our future endeavours.

    Positive: Professionalism, quality, responsiveness

    Brilliant Digital has a wonderfully friendly, helpful and knowledgeable team and has been invaluable to my business.

    Our business website was looking dated and needed a revamp, and we weren’t happy with our current website managers, so we shopped around and were immediately drawn to Brilliant Digital. We set up a meeting and a few weeks later had a great new website, and we’ve had great feedback from clients since about the new look. The website has no doubt drawn new customers to my business and I feel that it has been worth every cent spent.

    But wait there’s more!

    Brilliant Digital has been a fountain of knowledge on all aspects of internet and web marketing and social media, and we’re really grateful for their knowledge and expertise and the huge impact they have had on our business.

    My website has been critical to my success. It is literally the face of my business… it’s the shop window.

    I can’t recommend Brilliant Digital highly enough. It is the only company that has taken the time to gain a deep understanding of me, my business, what I want to achieve and where I want to go with it.

    Our website was up and running in six weeks as promised. I couldn’t believe it, actually. Our first website was such a long, tortuous process.

    Brilliant Digital has done everything they said they would do. We’ve never had a problem, even with all the increased traffic from the new marketing campaigns. We’ve been very happy!

    We really feel that the end product was just at such a high standard. It’s really crisp, really clean, and it’s gone from scope all the way to that delivery piece. It’s been quality all the way.

    We value that and we think the Brilliant Digital team has far exceeded our expectations.

    Janelle Dixon
    Facilities First

    We are a very busy medical practice that recently engaged Brilliant Digital to develop our website and online presence.

    Straight away we realised we had found someone with invaluable marketing experience, who explained in plain speaking the pitfalls and advantages of the online world.

    This allowed us to get on with the more important issue of running our practice.

    We have received lots of positive feedback regarding our website and mobile site from many of our patients.

    When we came to Brilliant Digital, the selling point for us was the strategy. It wasn’t just about building a website; it was about having a philosophy.
