Below is a selection of the many comments we receive from our clients.
I just wanted to say a big thank you to you and all of the guys at Waterside Designs for the brilliant work you have done over the past 6 months for Five Minute Angels. Our original website was built using flash and although it looked great we were not appearing in any of the organic searches and had to really heavily on Google Adwords to get traffic to our website. Paul was able to rebuild the entire website using HTML without losing any of the creative design or feel. Paul also suggested adding a lead capture page so that we could gather information from potential customers who were interested in our service which meant that enquiries increased by over 40%.
We then invested in an SEO campaign which involved optimising the website for 5 key phrases. After three months we started climbing the Google rankings and as of the 17th March 2009 four out of the five key phrases are on the first page of Google, with the fifth phrase being at the very top of page 2! As impressive as this is, the real icing on the cake is that we are now ranked both first AND second for "event massage" out of over 27 million search results!!!
Thank you for all of your hard work and the fantastic support you have provided - it has been greatly appreciated!
David - 5 Minute Angels
Thank You for putting so much time and effort into our web site. Aimee?s Boutique was in need of a revamp and the design ideas you have produced have been second to none and as a result we now have what we would consider a market leading web site for our growing wedding accessories business. Paul has been very helpful despite our high demands for detail and above all completed the project within a short timescale to a standard higher than our initial expectations.
Aimee & Roy - Aimees Boutique
I can't believe how good the optimising has been my visitors have doubled and more importantly my sales have also doubled. I was a bit unsure whether the money I spent would be worth it because I have been told that optimising companies promise a lot but don't deliver, I can only say WOW!!! I am overwhelmed by the response I have had. THANKS.
Joan - Aye Do

Donna - Chicks Love
I just wanted to say a big thank you for your SEO work - the latest changes you have made has resulted in the search term "office massage" moving from page 5 of GOOGLE up to the number 1 spot on the first page!!!
David - Five Minute Angels
I thought I should get around to letting you know just how pleased I am with the website you have created for us. Already having an e-commerce website was useful in that we knew what we wanted our new site to achieve, but we didn?t know how to do this or how it should look. Thanks to your guidance and understanding, from our vague description you have come up with a website that is absolutely perfect, both in the way it looks and the way it performs. We now have a website that we are very proud of and one which has given our company a fresh new image. Thanks to the CMS we can now easily and quickly list more models than ever before and amend our listings instantly in response to market demands, it?s amazing and I don?t know how we could have ever survived without it. But it?s not just us been biased, our existing customers have been letting us know how much they too like the new site and we are already finding an upturn in site visitors and new sales, which is what it is all about. So, a really big thank you to Waterside Designs for being very patient with us and providing us with the ideal website to take our business into the future.
Ian - Motoring Miniatures
The service received from Waterside Designs has been very professional indeed - they have achieved exactly what I required for the website technically and visually at this initial stage. Paul is flexible to work with - promptly responding to questions and queries, but also willing to work at my pace when I have had to focus on other aspects of the business. Bump Magic is already growing and we have new functionality requirements planned for the website in the near future - I'll be working with Paul and his team to achieve those requirements.
I would like to take this opportunity of expressing my delight at the website you have created for us. All of us at hampton bows are extremely happy with the design and we cannot state enough our satisfaction with the finished site.
From the first contact with you and all the way through the construction, you have always been very professional in your dealings with us and for someone who is an absolute technophobe, you have always talked to me and not down to me.
Thank you for all your help and I look forward to a close relationship with Waterside Designs in the future.
Rosemary Turner, Director - hampton bows limited
Thank you so much for designing my fabulous new website. I was very impressed by how quickly you achieved the excellent end result and for your constructive ideas on the design and layout. Already I've had many positive comments from people about how good it looks. Your advice, coupled with the new website, has been invaluable. I'll certainly be recommending your services.
Julie Welburn - Hearts & Crosses
I was initially impressed by the clear and up-front pricing provided by Waterside Designs. The process of getting the website ready was surprisingly uncomplicated and I was consulted and offered advice and suggestions throughout. I now have a really professional website that I am proud to direct customers to! Many thanks ? I would be more than happy to recommend Waterside Designs to anyone.

A painless process and great value for money ? thanks.
David Morling - dm4Art.com
Waterside Designs have proved to be invaluable in the set-up of Quantum Aquarium Services. The first thing I did, when setting up the business, was look for a Web Site Designer and, after an intensive search, I put my trust into Waterside. This was the best choice I could have made, since they made every step of a process of which I had absolutely no knowledge, simple and straightforward. Everything I have ever thrown at them, they have answered or carried out professionally, rapidly and courteously. I know that my Web Site (and therefore my business) is in safe hands with Waterside Designs
Gordon - Quantum Aquarium Services
Thanks for the excellent website you provided me with, sales have tripled since changing over my site with you. Also thanks for the good communication and after sales you provide me with
Mark - Memory-Mattress.co.uk
Just a note to say thank you very much... its a cliche but the website has paid for itself four times over in the space of three months. To anyone thinking a website is wasted money - think again,don't wait, only wish we had done it years ago. If you are reading the Testimonials for Waterside and Paul in particular its all true I can't sum it up any better.
Tim - tintyourglass.co.uk
I asked Waterside Designs if they could improve my rankings on the major search engines, after they worked their magic the results have been fantastic, my website hits are up from 2000 a month to 20000, unbelievable, the work just hasn't stopped coming in. Definately the best money I've spent on improving the website.
Andy - Sound Division
Fantastic service.... I was promised a completed website with shopping cart in 4 weeks, it was completed in just over 2! Excellent communication all the way through the process both by phone and Email. I cannot praise waterside designs highly enough
Martin Telfer - AGPComputing.co.uk
Waterside designs have been excellent in building our website from start to finish. The ongoing support was second to none, & I would recommend them to anyone. A 1st class job and thankyou all very much
Rachel - Sexsationalsex.co.uk
A big thank you for elevating my vision from a piece of paper into a very professional website. I really appreciated your thoughts and comments in bringing the site to life from both an aesthetic and technical perspective.
Brett Hewitt - AlarmBroker.com
Just wanted to say many thanks for all your help, as you could probably tell I am not great on computers so your advice and help has been brilliant, my business will surely benefit. I am just so pleased and proud of my site, it has got to be one of the best investments I have made on my business.
Robert Bigwood - Retro Advertising
We just wanted to express our thanks for the fantastic design for the Reef Gliders website. Since going live at the beginning of March we are averaging over 1,100 visits a month and have had many comments from clients on how good the site looks.
Barry Pope , Reef Gliders
Friendly & efficient service and more importantly my customer orders started coming in as soon as the site became live
Joan Hetherington , Aye Do Designs
Waterside Designs did a fantastic job producing our website; they were very helpful with design suggestions and very quick to put these into action to produce a website that we love. I would recommend them to anyone who appreciates a hands on, professional service that is great value for money.
Gillian Clegg, Dircetor - Poppy & Lily Design Company Ltd
They were extremely helpful and persistent. We love our website and our business now feels complete. There was constant attention to our every need, and great communication by E-mail and phone! I would recommend Waterside Designs to anyone looking for a web designer, and I would most definitely use them in the future
Jennifer Mackie - On Top of the Hill Interiors
Wow, what a professional service - our website is up and running in a week. Waterside Designs were thoughtful of the requirements of our website and of our target audience and their input will have contributed to its overall success. The whole project was made painless by the friendly and cooperative approach adopted by Waterside Designs.
Mary Wloszek, Director - London Media Make-Up School
Thanks for all your hard work. I am very, very pleased with the service, the website, attention to detail, all the contact & the drive & enthusiam you have shown. Everything has been superb & in my opinion worth every penny!
Joanne Struyk - Chameleon Mobile
From our first conversation, they made me feel at ease. I had set up my business on the Monday and by the following Friday I had already met with frustrations regarding the site. The issues were either time or expense and Waterside Designs were the answer to both. The website was running by Tuesday of the next week and they not only put everything together but also advised me and helped with issues not in their domain. I only hope I will be as professional in my new business role.
Steve Davenport - ukescape Ltd
I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Waterside Designs. From my initial contact through to the delivery of my finished website I was impressed with the speed and efficiency of the friendly service that I received. Even though my site was a topic never met before, They spent time in consultation with me so that they were able to advise me and come up with possibilities that I hadn't thought of. At the same time, my own wishes were taken into account and I always felt fully in control. I have ended up with a website that I'm really proud of and, even though I didn't have to do any of the work myself, it still feels as though it reflects everything that I wanted.
Sue Osborne - Sue Osborne Miniature Knitting
I'd just like to thank you for designing my website. I searched for ages on the internet looking at different sites and yours was the only one that offered what i was looking for.I received a very proffesional service and at a very reasonable price.
Andy Milner - Sound Division
As the chair of a pensioners organisation I contacted Waterside Designs about improving our web site. This they did expertly, speedily, efficiently and with a complete understanding of our needs.
Geoffrey Smith - Merton Seniors Action Group
I owe a great deal to Paul At waterside. firstly for his constant advice, updates and explanations; his willingness to help me with all aspects of the business, including subject matter unconnected with the site design. But most of all my productivity. My turnover ( and profit) has gone through the roof since we went live. If i tell you i sold 6 summerhouses/ play systems a month before going live, and in the first 3 days of the site going live i sold a months worth !, that may give you an idea of how happy i am - and busy! I covered his costs within the first day of going live. Choosing waterside was possibly the most astute and cost effective investment i have made since setting up the company. Thanks paul.
Mark Bentley - East London Decking
From concept through to completion, Waterside Designs made the whole process of designing our website a painless one. The result is a great-looking site which we are delighted with, created on time and on budget. We would have no hesitation in recommending their services
Edward May - SoundOnHold
We approached Waterside Designs with a view to starting a sales campaign over the web. Out of a shortlist of four companies we decided that the service and flexibility Waterside offered, along with keen pricing, made them the number one choice for us. We gave them a very short deadline and sent over the text. As the site was to be used purely as a sales tool we didn?t want to confuse our clients ? we had no design in mind, just functionality and simple to use. The result was as required and we went live a day early. As far as results are concerned a week after going live our site has paid for itself 5 times over.
Marvin Lee - Global Home Protection
There are so many website design companies and I spent ages trying to look at all the prices and options that each of these companies offered. The reason I chose waterside Designs in the end was that price was important to me and Waterside designs seemed to offer the best all round package and quality of website for my budget. The price was great, all costs were clear from the outset with no hidden extras, the speed with which the website was created was fantastic and they were very easy to work with and very friendly. I would certainly recommend them.
