Like every dynamic business, at NoCowboys we take great pride in the feedback we receive and it is even more heartening for us as we are in the business of marketing the reputations of thousands of New Zealand businesses to help them prosper and grow. Reviews are our bread and butter. Aside from the kudos that comes from positive feedback, there is the affirmation of the many ways that reviews aid businesses online.

Daniel Barry registered his business, Slick Finishes Ltd with NoCowboys a little over a year ago. Based in Auckland and serving the wider ‘Super City,’ “Daniel has nearly 10 years of experience in Painting and Plastering. He is a proud member of the AWCI (Association of Wall and Ceiling Industries of New Zealand) and Master Painters of New Zealand. He has worked on a multitude of projects in Canada and New Zealand.

“All work is performed by Daniel and his co-worker Richard, who combined have over 40 years experience in the painting and plastering industry. We pride ourselves on being masters of our craft. We are always striving to improve, become better, and look forward to taking on any project.” In fact, this is the text from Daniel’s website and these words are backed up by the feedback from his customers that he regularly receives on his NoCowboys profile. Daniel doesn’t just imagine that his own words will sell his business – he is committed to inviting his customers to spread the good word for him.

I first spoke with Daniel while he was in quarantine in a hotel in Auckland last year. He was new to the idea of online reviews and was inquisitive and keen to learn more. More than anything he wanted to to build his customer base and grow his business online. Over the months I have spoken with him regularly and it has been a gratifying experience to see him and his business realise the benefits of our online review platform.

“The one key difference I have noticed since signing my business up to NoCowboys compared to other advertising avenues, is the quality of customer I get from them. NoCowboys has connected me with home owners who are passionate about their homes and serious about the work they want on it. I have yet to have had a bad experience with any of the many clients I have had the privilege working with that were able to find my business since signing up to NoCowboys,” Daniel says.

“I have also noticed that NoCowboys has increased my visibility on Google searches, making it easier for potential customers to find my business online. NoCowboys is an invaluable tool for that I will continue to use for many years to come.”

We have no doubt that Daniel’s business will continue to thrive, online. His customers consistently point to the quality of his work and his ability to transform and beautify their homes. Those reviews are what keeps new customers calling – by either seeing his reviews on out site or through online searches.
