"Elite Carpet Cleaning has been registered with No Cowboys since the 11th of May 2011. As an organisation we pride ourselves on delivering a high quality service and constantly aim to exceed our client expectations. In fact, this is one of our core organisational values and is a central focus of our business operations.
As such, we have found the No Cowboys website an invaluable tool that helps us to showcase this aspect of our business as it provides a platform where prospective clients can read independent consumer reviews. This in turn helps us to demonstrate credibility and establish trust with our potential clients before they have even contacted us!
Our clients often comment on our 100% overall rating and the number of consumer reviews that we have on the NoCowboys website, and commonly state this as the deciding factor in choosing to use our service.
Based on the feedback we have received from our clients we can confidently say that NoCowboys not only helps us to promote our business but also helps our prospective clients when trying to make an informed decision and provides an independent platform where they can share their experiences.
In fact, we have found the NoCowboys website to be such a valuable tool that we not only direct people to the website when they express an interest in reading reviews about us, but also when they are looking for other trades or services that we cannot provide for them.
We would have no hesitation in recommending NoCowboys to any consumer looking for a trusted business and also to any business professionals who pride themselves on their customer service and want to showcase their customer feedback."
"I have been a member of NoCowboys for many years now and have built up a large client base thanks to NoCowboys. I'm contacted nearly every day by potential clients via the NoCowboys website, giving me more work than I can handle. However, after more than 50 years in the trade, I now wish to retire. Therefore, I am sad to say that I will not be renewing my membership.
Thank you NoCowboys for a fantastic service of bringing clients and services together."
"NoCowboys has been fantastic for my business. I get more business through NoCowboys than any other website. The fact that you can be reviewed is helpful, l as I know my customers are reading these reviews before they contact me. The customer service at NoCowboys is also top notch. They are very easy to deal with and are happy to sort out queries, no matter how big or small."
"Kurt Transport Ltd has been registered with NoCowboys for some years now and as we are in the furniture removals industry, our reputation is paramount. Our clients regularly leave feedback on our service at NoCowboys and we receive between 50 & 60% of our referral work from new customers as a direct result of their checking our feedback through the NoCowboys website. If you are a leader in your field, you value your clients' comments and are looking for ways to increase your sales, use NoCowboys as the portal for them to check your service history. You will not be disappointed with the results."
"Through word of mouth I had heard of NoCowboys. I decided to give it a trial and we haven't looked back. The website is very user friendly we have been inundated with work the feedback that clients place has been invaluable and the fees are realistic. I used to spend a massive amount on Yellow Pages advertising each year. I am now down to the bare minimum with them. I always recommend NoCowboys as the advertising site for all tradesmen to use. Now when we need a tradesman NoCowboys is our first call."
"No Cowboys represents the best way for a customer to get a feel of the trades person/ company before they make contact to do the job. Referrals and ratings are more true then a fancy website. Any one can have a nice web site but not everyone provides great service. We have been very happy with the service and outcome of being an account holder. There are many enquiries for our services offered from this web site. People often mention the good ratings, they feel it is worth getting a good job done with quality service from someone who has been referred.
After all who wants a cowboy in your home while you are not there!"
"I have been himming and harring about this for a week I don't want to give away my secrets incase other houselifters start using NoCowboys exactly how I do it. I get 95% of my work from Nocowboys and i'm busy all the time. I know that this is the best site to get work from and every tradie that I come across I tell them to go with you guys. No cowboys is the best it keeps you on your a game all the time because the last thing that you want is a bad feedback on your company name I would be disappointed with anything under a 95%. Every time I send a quote I have on it read my feed back and have a link to my site and if they go with someone else after reading that good luck to them."
"We at Absolute Kitchens want to pass on our thanks for your website in helping our business grow. We are delighted to advise that we benefit from a steady line of inquiry and in turn encourage out customers to write their own feedback when we have created their new kitchen. Having the website sticker on our vehicles also encourages inquiries. The name 'NoCowboys says it all and we continue to work hard to ensure we have happy customers. Please pass on our thanks to your team."
"Since registering on nocowboys.co.nz we've had a steady stream of new customers from their website."
"The No Cowboys website has brought in more work than all other forms of advertising that I have tried including radio, fliers, yellow pages, and whats more its cheaper than all other forms of advertising. In short its great value for money."
"Since I registered with NoCowboys.co.nz, I receive on average 4/5 phone calls a week from the website, and my listing has had over 2000 views. I am now booked solid with work for the next year."
"Just just thought I'd drop you a line to let you know what no cowboys is doing for my business. I've been attaching a No Cowboys sticker to every invoice I issue for the last few months. Recently, I've been taking the time to tell my customers what no cowboys is all about and as a result, i have noted a that the frequency of feedback being placed has increased quite a lot. I'm also starting to get new customers on a regular basis directly as a result of them reading the feedback about Anzac Automotive on the no cowboys website. I recently had three new customers in one week that told me they chose to come to my shop only because they had read the feedback on your site. I now see your website as an essential way of getting customer feedback and judging how well we're doing. I would recommend to any small business that wants to grow to utilise the No Cowboys website. You will find that not being registered on the site is costing you business. If you do a good job, your customers are more than happy to tell others - that's the best (and cheapest) advertising you can get! Thanks for making a great site."
"Congratulations to the NoCowboys team for an innovative and much needed concept that has been well executed.
NoCowboys has proved to be an excellent opportunity for Crash Brokers and has contributed significantly to the growing awareness of our relatively new brand. NoCowboys is a valuable channel for us and generates a surprising volume of business, and I believe effectiveness is enhanced by the independence and transparency provided by unedited customer feedback. So far from being just another 'advertising opportunity', NoCowboys provides the credibility of a consumer protection website combined with factual information and real-life case-studies.
In addition to our successful listing on the site, both management & staff at Crash Brokers also use the site to procure trades and services both for business and private use. We all agree that the site is convenient and reliable, and have never been disappointed with our choice of service provider."
"The NoCowboys site has been really beneficial for my business. My business really stands out amongst all the other 'blokey' trades, which gives me a nice point of difference. I have found a lot of women ringing me about how impressed they are with the feedback that has been placed from happy clients, which has really helped generate more quality leads. My investment with you guys has proved very wise compared to other forms of advertising/marketing."
"We have advertised with NoCowboys for over a year now. It costs very little and is invaluable to New Zealand SMEs. It allows prospective customers to read testimonials from happy customers so they can feel secure they won't get a 'cowboy'. We receive enquiries from very small to medium to large jobs - we try to please all. It gives me great pleasure to constantly see SSM Electrical Ltd so highly rated. Thanks to NoCowboys; it is a great service."
"In an ever changing business environment, customer feed back is critical for the long term success of our company. We appreciate the forum provided by No Cowboys for which our clients can comment on the service provided. Positive feed back is awesome, but negative feed back is invaluable in order to change our work methodologies. Here at Hall Electrical we are aware that our customer base will grow quicker from good service, not just pricing. The best advertising is word of mouth or web surfing. To this end, No Cowboys has been the best source for this."
"No Cowboys is the best value for money advertising we have found! The amount of referrals from this site has well out weighed every other form of advertising we have and costs us a whole heap less! We find it a fantastic tool and an intricate part of our business."
"I joined up with 'NoCowboys' just over a year ago. Since then I estimate to have received over $80,000 worth of business as a direct result of people looking for a builder on the net and I'm still getting calls during this traditionally very quiet time of year. When I compare 'NoCowboys' to other forms of advertising, it offers good results for a fraction of the outlay. We find that we can put far more information in front of the client to help them make an informed decision than say in a newspaper advertisement (which for a single week often costs about the same amount as an annual subscription with 'NoCowboys'). NoCowboys gets my thumbs up!"
"Hi I am Robert van Driel, from A Grade Building and Repiling Ltd. I joined up my company up with NoCowboys nearly half a year ago now. I get more work of their web site than my yellow pages advertisement. People want to hire a builder that has proven himself capable, and reliable, so when they find my company, they know, and can trust that I wont let a job turn into an absolute fiasco and subsequent nightmare. There are many cowboys around in my profession, but there is no chance of those crooks hiding on here for long, just getting by. You have to be good, to get on here, and most importantly!! STAY on here. Well worth the money I paid. The technical support is second to none either. Don’t hang around procrastinating, register NOW!"
"Just like to say we are very happy with the NoCowboys web site as it has so far provided us with more jobs in the first week than we got with 6 months worth of yellow pages ads and it seems we are finally getting some reward for the hard work and effort we put into building good relationships with our customers. So thanks to the NoCowboys team!"
"Since joining nocowboys.co.nz i have received on average 2 phone calls a week and 2 emails. We were advertising with Yellow online and paying a substantial amount compared to the minimal amount nocowboys.co.nz costs and the results have been far superior. I have been,and would recommend nocowboys.co.nz to any tradesman who are proud of their work and are looking for genuine customers!"
"Just thought I’d take a moment to let you know how pleased I am with the effectiveness of our listing on the NC site. 'Bang for buck' is second to none in comparison to other forms of more traditional advertising. No Cowboys offers us two clear benefits – new prospects seeking a quote after finding us on NC, and it's also proving a highly effective tool for prospective customers to gain peace of mind when deciding to book (and we all know it can be a tough thing to endure if the wrong choice is made!). So thanks guys, great site – keep up the good work!"
"Hi my name is Hennie. When I first started BARS ON WHEELS a couple of years ago I went through the normal small business way of advertising by flyer and business cards. Then I did a Yellow pages advert which cost me an arm and a leg. I then heard about No Cowboys and decided to give it a go. I like to feel I was one of the originals to use them as they were still new. All I can say is...Holy Smoke...did it work for me. The best investment in advertising I have ever done. I was getting four to five calls a week and a heap of emails. When you consider how many Tow bar companies there are in Auckland and the amount of calls I as a small one man business was getting speaks volumes for No Cowboys. During the year that I had the yellow pages advert I only got two calls. I know this because if I get a call I always ask my customers how they heard of me. I closed my company down for two years and in the first year I was still getting phone calls about Tow Bars. When I restarted a few weeks ago it was like I had not stopped....absolutely bloody brilliant. No Cowboys is a dream come true for any company big or small. Keep up the good work guys."
"There is no better advertising than word of mouth, and the testimonials on No Cowboys are incredibly valuable to the growth and constant improvement of our electrical business. No Cowboys has created countless new opportunities for LECK ELECTRICAL and by providing great customer service at fair prices No Cowboys is by far our most effective form of advertising and like most other tradies - we have tried them all! "Cowboys" don’t stand a chance on such a public forum, so customers know they are getting the best in the business. We have been a member since 2007 and wouldn’t have it any other way."
"I first heard NoCowboys advertisement on the radio a few years ago, and thought it sounded like a great idea, being focused on doing it right and not concerned with negative feedback, I thought this was a great forum. So with integrity and commitment to our customers NoCowboys was an easy decision. We measure were our customers come from and also ask for details, time and time again our new clients mention NoCowboys, even when they don’t use the contact email for the NoCowboys website, this is one of the most cost effective media we have ever used."
"Our experience with ‘NoCowboys’ has been a very fulfilling one. We receive regular enquiries through the website which we have then managed to successfully obtain work from. The customer service and up to date information provided by the 'NoCowboys' team is at the highest standard and we cannot fault them at all."
"Since we first found out about the NoCowboys website we have been excited about the opportunity to allow our clients the chance of wording their opinions of our company and services provided. You guys have provided honest businesses the best platform to expose themselves to potential future clients. We have always believed we provide a good quality service and with a personal approach, something that seems to be lacking today with a lot of other service providers. Many of the inspections we complete today are as a result of clients being guided through NoCowboys to see what our customers have to say. We monitor where our enquiries come from and several have seen us through your website and many more are guided to it if they are in any doubt over claims of our expertise. NoCowboys keeps the cowboys in their spurs and allows the cream to excel. Thanks NC!!"
"After being approached by NoCowboys and asking an opinion of a painter already with NoCowboys, I have found they have exceeded my expectations. They have been an absolute dream to work with as a company, and also have provided me with plenty of work. The way the site is set up is great and puts confidence in people looking for jobs to be done. I could not recommend NoCowboys highly enough to Trades People wanting to maximise their work load."
"Tony’s Panel Beaters are finding No Cowboys to be the most productive component of our internet marketing campaign. We currently use Google ad words, an internet marketing consultant, Yellow Pages, Finda and Facebook alongside No Cowboys but customers most frequently mention NoCowboys as how they have come to use our services. We also find that NoCowboys clients, having read our testimonials, are much more open and less price sensitive than other internet sourced clients. If you are a trade or service based business we would recommend No Cowboys and that you actively encourage your clients to place feedback about you on your listing."
"I advertise with several online directories and find both the feel and results I get from No Cowboys to work very well for my business. The enquiries seem to come through on a regular basis and I used to be surprised with how many people use No Cowboys....I'm not so amazed anymore because I know people are out there actively using this directory. I particularly find that people like to be able to read testimonials and feedback on businesses from past customers."
"Hi my name is Dan Sothern from Built Rite Construction. I’ve been with NoCowboys for just over a year now and as far as advertising/marketing goes it’s been the best thing since sliced bread. There is a lot of what I would call copycat websites out there like NoCowboys but none of them hold a candle to NoCowboys and their support team. In my opinion if you’re looking for real enquiries from real customers not tyre kickers the search is over! At present I would be averaging around 4 to 5 enquires a week via email and mobile calls. NoCowboys and their team have been and still are a great asset to my building business. So thank you NoCowboys and I look forward to our future together."
"I have only been in business for a couple of months now and the response I have received from clients from the NoCowboys website has been absolutely helpful in getting my business off the ground. Let’s just say its money well spent. It’s way too easy with the NoCowboys website. A special thanks to Danielle for making this all possible. She’s been supportive by following up, making sure I get my ratings in, giving me little hints and just giving praise which helps.... alot."
"After going back and forth with various listing directories we were looking at placing the order elsewhere, but last moment decision was made to join NoCowboys. Never for a second I regretted it. So far, being with NoCowboys for about 7 month it brought us 70,000+ worth of business and keeps getting fresh live leads every other day. The concept of it is old, however with a fresh approach and right mission statement NoCowboys makes it the perfect for us. Due to the nature of our business customers would like to do their research and see what the UNEDITED feedback looks like. Service from the team is second to none. They make registration and original set up an absolute breathe. Feel free to contact us to get more info."
"We have been replying to jobs/projects advertised on the “NoCowboys” website for two months now. During this small period of time we have secured two projects, one in excess of a million dollars. We find using the site has enabled us to pick and choose projects depending on suitability, size and availability. The team at “NoCowboys” are always available and offer great advice. We will be continuing to utilise this site as the small initial outlay has easily paid for itself already."
"I wanted to write to you to say how pleased I am with the great service we receive from you guys, every time I call you I am always met with friendly and efficient service! Not only that, but we have had a lot of referrals from our listing with you and I am thrilled. Because we are a 24/7 Emergency Carpet and Flood Restoration Business, we are always on call and there for our clients, it’s nice to know that NoCowboys are there for us too! Showing past clients thoughts on our work makes our business transparent to our perspective clients. For the price we pay each year, it’s a bargain… I consider listing with NoCowboys one of the best advertising decisions I have made!
