    "We have had a Webgenius website since 2008 and I can say without hesitation that our current website that was designed and implemented by Webgenius is fantastic. The sites modular design lends itself very well to future enhancements and upgrades without impacting the current functionality. Webgenius’s follow-up on issues related to the site is exceptional. I was able to increase my client base substantially. The professionalism and individualism of the customer service I received from Webgenius is exceptional. To see that this web design company was able to create my vision on the web was incredible as they did not leave out any details and collaborated with me through the process to assure that I was completely satisfied. I highly recommend Webgenius to everyone!"

    "Web Genius created our Website about 9 years ago. Two years ago we got an update to mobile friendly version. The team were attentive in listening to our needs and vision. Recently a customer said they had read something on our webpage which I was sure we had not included, so I contacted WG. Their reply pledged to look at our issue within 2 days, the matter was dealt with the same day. I needed a new link for referrals and was provided with one within the hour. We are really happy with how our website is performing and given the amount of work we receive from it, it is excellent value for money."

    "We had just had our Web Genius website updated and refreshed and during this project we worked with Vicki Simpson. We found Vicki knowledgeable, responsive, friendly and easy to work with. We are very pleased with our refreshed website and the ease we were able to achieve this working with Web Genius and working one on one with Vicki, who is a great asset to the WG team."

    "We had Web Genius create our website from an existing web site end of 2016. The challenge was to create a web site that would help firstly be readable and market all our services as we offer a vast range of services to our targeted market. From the first consultations to changes made and on-going maintenance we have had an incredibly stress free, pleasurable experience. All the team members we have worked with at Web Genius have been professional, skilled in their different fields and have provided a service that has exceeded our expectations. We have had our web site up and running for almost a year and have gained so much traction, work and positive inquiry from it. We have had our targets of incoming inquiry exceeded and couldn't be happier. We could not only recommend the services of the team at Web Genius but can attest to the point of difference they provide making them easily the go to for any future referrals we would pass on for website creation and management."

    "I have used this Wellington based company for some SEO. The employ a google friendly link farm. Which strictly speaking is against the rules but google doesnt seem to mind. I asked to be put in the farm. They said they would do it. I signed the contract in good faith. They never did it. I contacted them many times, but eventually gave up. Before you sign anything with these guys make sure you read their contract first. Thats their thing getting you to sign a contract. "
    Richard Calkin responded:
    "Sorry to hear that your experience with Web Genius was less than positive, and I agree totally that you should read everything in a contract before signing it. Our belief is that a contract is the best way for all parties to be clear on what will be delivered and we specifically detail everything that we are accountable to deliver in our contracts. So therefore a contract protects both the client and Web Genius and to our mind represents good basic business practice - something that is practised by most reputable businesses. Our team is dedicated to getting the absolute best results for our clients, so I am at a loss to explain why your SEO programme would not have been set-up in your case. Just one last thing I need to correct. We don't employ any sort of link farm, or anything else that contravenes Google's guidelines concerning link schemes as you seem to be suggesting. You can read more about Google's guidelines on their website using the link below, including a list of tactics that may violate Google's guidelines. Web Genius does not engage in any of these practices. https://support.google.com/webmasters/answer/66356?hl=en Please contact me if you would any further information - I'd be happy to talk this through if you would like..."

    "I've been with Web Genius for about 5 years and have been ripped off for all of them. There monthly charges $171 !! .Their web site format dose not let any other company change your website. Your stuck with them unless you want to build a new website at about $2000. Normal monthly charges are around $80. I am now free of these people after spending money on a new website that is also mobile ready. Be very careful signing up with these guys. Because you will be locked in to there system."
    Richard Calkin responded:
    "Really sorry to hear that you felt over charged and locked in. We clearly need to do a better job of communicating the value we offer because when you look at everything you had in that package, I believe that you simply wouldn't find better value anywhere in the market. The package you mention for $171 inc GST per month included an ongoing search engine optimisation which guarantees first page Google rankings for five out of your 15 keyword phrases (a guarantee that was met in your case every month of the five years you were a client), as well as a Google Adwords campaign including all the Google clickthrough charges built into the monthly investment. On top of this, the package includes Google Maps optimisation, half an hour of monthly updates and more in-depth reporting than that offered by any other company we are aware of. If you are interested in finding out more about the Web Genius Difference check out this 5-minute video on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aZJr40SmhKg&feature=youtu.be Any one of the factors mentioned above usually cost more (from other web companies) than the total cost of our package, so if you were to compare apples with apples you might get a different picture of the value you received. Either way, I can assure you that the team at Web Genius is dedicated to getting our clients the absolute best web marketing results that we can and this is what we were aiming for in your case too. All the best for your business, which I hope continues to go from strength to strength in the future. "

    "I moved my website to Webgenius around 7 years ago now and have been very pleased. Since the move we have been receiving more inquiry daily than we used to get a year. The site looks great and any changes I need made are done very quickly. We rank very well on Google and that brings in the work."

    "It's so hard to find a really good web designer especially one with Marketing expertise. We have been with Web Genius for 6 years now and would not use any one else. They promised to get our website on the first page of Google within a month...well we were very impressed to be there within a week for many of our keywords. Our previous website from a different company couldn't achieve that result within 4 months. Our industry is highly competitive so a great web designer is imperative. Seeing as our website is loaded with content it has to be quick and easy for the customer to use. We get lots of great feed-back from our customers about how easy it was to order product. Thank you Richard and the Web Genius Team for being so professional and continuing to go the extra mile. Much appreciated"

    "We have used Web Genius for the last 8 years. Before that I thought that the internet was a black hole that we poured money into. When we went to Web Genius our website was developed on time and on budget - they kept all their promises. We are in a highly competitive national market and our website continues to perform consistently. We have recommended many people to Web Genius and have never heard a word of complaint from any of these referrals."

    "We went with Web Genius about 2 years ago and now recieve between 200 and 400 new customers per month. It did not happen overnight and you had to be prepared to take the advice of thier staff . They are not a cheap option but to put it in context by the first monday lunch time of every month I have made enough from the new customers we have got from our website to pay the entire months fees. The rest is profit. No other advertising meduim or company has ever been able to provide that result "

    "Web Genius was contracted by us to build a new website, and host/market the website, and we were completely disappointed and disgusted with the result and their attitude. Web Genius guarantee to get your site on googles page 1 for search results for 5 relevant phrases for your industry within 3 months of going live. They charged over $3000 to build the site and $170 per month to host and "market" the site, which they say includes SEO, link building and adwords. We insisted that google analytics was installed on the site so we could independently track the results. In the 4th month of hosting, (April) the site only got 114 visitors according to analytics. (thats 3 visitors per day on average, some days the site got no traffic at all). As a comparison our existing website which was built by another company and costs $40 to host, got 2886 visitors in the same month We complained to Webgenius, and said would increase the adwords spend, and do extra work to improve the traffic immediately. However 2 months later in June the site got even less visitors! At this stage we could see that Web Genius's work was far below what we considered satisfactory. We asked that the site be taken down and a refund be given to us based on the results. Web Genius agreed the traffic was unsatisfactory but as they had page one results on 5 phrases, they believed they had fulfilled their guarantee, and will not refund our money, and have not replied to our last email. Unfortunately the phrases Web Genius based their guarantee on are so rarely used by the public when googling in our industry, they return such a bad result. It appears in our case Web Genius could not get results on commonly used search phrases, as they are targeted by other SEO companies and are too difficult to get rankings for. In our case Web Genius's work for far below what we considered satisfactory, especially as they market themselves as experts."
