The bounce rate almost immediately went from over 60% to just 2%.   His input on the format for the site was invaluable in achieving this.

Work with Craig was a terrific experience as he was intuitive and thoughtful about how my website would work.  The design was great, but also the layout made an immediate difference to my SEO and site useage.  The bounce rate almost immediately went from over 60% to just 2% and the page hits rose from 1-2 per visit to over 8.   His input on the format for the site was invaluable in achieving this.

He is easy to work with and responds quickly and effectively to requests for ongoing help. I have no hesitation in recommending Craig and 45b.

I have been very impressed with Craig’s work on both our Website and Newsletter. He has helped us to move our site on to a new web platform and completely redesigned it in a simpler and more effective design. Craig had lots of great ideas and tips and gave us contacts for photographs and other resources we could use on the site that saved us time and money. We very much appreciate his help also with our regular Newsletter which he also redesigned in line with our website. He is easy to work with and responds quickly and effectively to requests for ongoing help. I have no hesitation in recommending Craig and 45b.

We now have a professional website which gives our members accessibility to their site. A job well done.

Our website was in desperate need of updating we looked at several web designers before choosing 45b. Craig took on board our initial concept and made it work for us. It’s easy for us to update and we are now able to keep our members and visitors alike informed what’s going on at the golf club. We now have a professional website which gives our members accessibility to their site. A job well done.

We can highly recommend 45b to anyone who wishes to redevelop their website.

We needed to update our B-2-B website so as to increase traffic, increase awareness of our products and services and generate more conversion points or interactions with potential clients. We had received a high number of proposals but decided to go with 45b for a variety of reasons: a. 45b could provide good examples of previous work they have done; b. their proposal was very cost-effective based on the fact that an off-the-shelf WordPress template was suggested; c. we were given a recommendation for 45b by a company we know.
We found working with 45B very easy: response times were great, our specific requirements were understood, and – most importantly – we are very happy with the functionalities, look & feel of the new website. We can highly recommend 45b to anyone who wishes to redevelop their website.
Tom Mathar, LJ Research

I was not disappointed when I spoke with and worked with Craig. He was always contactable and receptive. He spoke layman website language!

“After researching others, I was drawn to 45b by 45b website itself: straightforward, clear, easy to use. I was not disappointed when I spoke with and worked with Craig. He was always contactable and receptive. He spoke layman website language! I was particularly impressed with his tenacity when an initial wordpress theme I chose (for him to transfer and upgrade my old site on), turned out to be a lemon. He had more patience than I would have had! I felt positive enough about Craig and 45b to mention them on my own new website.”

I am delighted that everything has run so smoothly, that we’ve managed to deliver a functional modernised website at such a low cost and in such a short timeframe, and I would NOT HESITATE to recommend the services of 45b.”

“45b has produced a really professional, eye catching and interactive website for Positive Help. We have really enjoyed working with Craig who has been supportive and knowledgeable throughout the process. When we were originally seeking funding for our website Craig took the time to help us understand what we could get out of a website and how we could maximise the work our website could do to raise our profile as a charity. Once we secured funding Craig was endlessly patient as we put together the site content and amended copy and images. He has produced a great design that presents our work with people affected by HIV/AIDS in the Edinburgh in an easily accessible and clear way. We also found the CMS training really easy to follow and have already put it into practise.

Most importantly it has made a difference to the magazine’s revenue as an increasing number of advertisers in the magazine came via the website. I would have no hesitation in recommending 45b

“When I decided that the next stage for the 702Gazette was to have a website, Craig of 45b came highly recommended. I had only vague ideas of what I wanted and working with Craig was so easy – from the initial concept to completion, he listened, made suggestions (and coffee!) and came up with a final product which not only needed very little ‘tweaking’ but has also made the 702Gazette brand more professional. I’m sure the site is complicated to design but its very easy for me to update (and I know Craig keeps his eye on it as he contacts me to let me know if I make a mistake on it!) and so simple for customers to navigate. Most importantly it has made a difference to the magazine’s revenue as an increasing number of advertisers in the magazine came via the website. I would have no hesitation in recommending Craig and 45b.”
