What I do

Sam Stell - Stells & Sons Ltd said...

We are very pleased with the new website Ben designed for us; its fresh, clean and simple to navigate around. Also, the new site has propelled our company up the Google search rankings thanks to the SEO features that were built into the design. Ben was an easy person to work with providing a professional approach and taking time to understand what we were trying to achieve. I would recommend his services to any business looking to improve their web presence.

Tom Lowes - Empire World Trade Ltd said...

I approached Ben to build two websites one for the our main company and one for the sister company. From the first meeting his enthusiasm reassured the job was safe in his hands. We wanted something Fresh and Attractive. Ben really delivered on what we wanted whilst throughout adding a personal touch with ideas and suggestions that were extremely welcome. Since then Ben has carried out other work for us always exceeding expectations, he truly has a unique talent and I can't recommend him enough.

Stuart Levin - Cube Lettings Ltd said...

Ben has built a number of websites for our group of companies now. On every single project he has met deadlines without fail and been accomodating when we have made changes to the specification. Ben has always delivered a standard that superseded our expectation, he is a pragmatic and professional individual and we wouldn't hesitate to reccommend him.

Geoff Young - Funderdatabase said...

We had an idea that would change the way business owners could locate and apply for business finance. The success of this new web based model was dependent upon strong visual design and clear, well defined business processes. Having successfully worked with Ben previously, we approached Ben to assist with this project. As always his support and ideas in initial project development were fantastic, the delivery was on time and on budget, and the net result is greater that we could have wished for.

I would have no hesitation in recommending Ben's work (in fact I do already!), and look forward to working with him again on future projects.

Nige Pearson - Trials UK said...

When Trials UK grew to a point where our website just couldn't fulfil our plans for developing the online presence of our business, we needed to find the right person to assist us in creating a new image for our company. After consulting a number of web developers we instinctively knew we had found the right company in Bensky. We now have a slick new image and ecommerce site with the ability to expand the website as we grow. We can't recommend Ben highly enough, you need him in your life!

Robert Graham - Verder Ltd said...

Ben was genuinely interested in what we were trying to achieve and wasn’t afraid to ask questions to ensure that we were always getting the website we wanted. Rather than just producing a site for us, we were offered advice about how the site should be built to generate the most traffic, and how the look and feel could be tailored to meet our brand requirements. Ben was always happy to make amendments and changes without complaint, this kind of service is greatly appreciated.

How did it work out?

The shades of blue balance through the website nicely and the professional photography takes the website to another dimension. I made separate pages for each of the major manufacturers and put them in a dropdown at the top of every page to promote the vehicle servicing side of their business.

Since launch Simon’s web traffic has increased by 250% and phone calls through the website by 450%! Read more about Simon Green’s Success.

Oliver North - North Fire said...

I personally worked very closely with Ben throughout the project. After an initial consultation, Ben quickly came up with a design and structure that I was more than happy with. The end product, which was functional only a couple of months after the initial consultation was excellent and I thoroughly feel confident that the quality and functionality of the website constructed by Ben is over and above any of our competitors.

I would undoubtedly recommend Ben to any company looking to improve website appearance/functionality as his proactive, modern approach to marketing works perfectly in conjunction with his excellent design skill set.

Linda Schulz - The Barefoot Gallery said...

Ben is very professional, he was happy to listen to what I wanted and had the ability to grasp the concept of what my business needed. He was able to tailor his content management system to my particular and precise needs and it is very easy to use. I have received so many positive, glowing comments about the website from customers and artists alike. I would most definatley recommend Ben to anyone looking for a web designer.

Paul Chaggar - RAX AV said...

Great service, Ben & Lucy listened to and understood what I wanted to achieve. The feedback they gave me was first rate and their suggestions were a big help. I couldn't recommend their services highly enough. Thanks again.
