What my clients say…
Here’s what some of my clients had to say about working with me.
“Vicki recently built me a website for my business and I have to say that she did a fantastic job. I thought I knew what I wanted but being a complete novice at web stuff I wasn’t able to communicate that very well. Vicki clearly knows what she is doing and helped me understand and realise what I was looking for in no time at all.”
Josh Smith

Owner, smith + Jakes

“Vicki’s help was so useful when I needed someone to guide me through the daunting task of social media marketing. What I found was enormously helpful was how she broke things down into bite sized pieces and suggested which forms of social media would be the most effective for my business. She has a great way of explaining things!”
Belinda McBride

She has been very approachable and doesn’t mind explaining things that we do not understand. She has also given us great advice on how to maximize our potential using social media. Thank you Vicki.”
