Kym Ireland, Shamrock Design 

"I had a website that was hard to change and I wasn’t getting the results I wanted. When I went to see Glen he was so helpful, he helped me realise that online marketing isn’t just about having a website.  He managed the build of a new website and made sure it was all about the website visitor and their experience, regardless of the web developers objections.  He told me what the data was showing him and from that we changed a few things and with just one recommendation from him we tripled our monthly sales!  I have highly recommended Glen to many friends who are in the same position that I was."
