What They Say About Us
“We’ve had a great experience with Click Through Digital. Steve’s marketing knowledge and thorough understanding of our brands has given us great and tangible results across all our websites leading to a direct increase in sales.”
“Click Through Digital have moved our website and online marketing forward significantly after having had a couple of bad experiences with other agencies. We are delighted to have finally found a partner that knows what they are doing and have delivered what they said they would. Our confidence in the sector has been restored.”
“A highly professional and fun company to work with. They had the task to build a new website for me and what a job they have done. It far surpassed anything that I had envisaged. I want to say a big thank you to Steve, Helen, Craig, Chris and Andrew for their patience, hard work and insights into making a spiritual website into one that helps explain the intricacies of House Healing visually and in a down to earth way.”
“We couldn’t be more delighted with our new website and commend all the team at Click Through Digital who have been fantastic. Following the initial meetings when we laid out what we wanted to achieve everyone was accessible on the phone and email for little tweaks and the final result gives us all the functionality and control we have asked for – from our online booking form and calendar to the management of our social media. We have received more than just a great website – we now have a far better understanding of our ‘brand’ and the Click Through team are a welcome extension to our Marketing strategy. We continue to consult with them regularly to ensure the website delivers and are very happy to recommend them.”
“We have worked with Clickthrough for several years now, and they have always provided a friendly and professional service! Always willing to help achieve, and definitely on board with our business and understanding our needs.”
“At 1st Mortgage Services we were at a cross roads with our business, we knew we needed to adopt Digital Marketing into the business but didn’t have a clue on how to do it! Stephen recommended we started with the website & built a fantastic one at that. Once this was in place we were able to plan a marketing strategy for our business for 2019. We are not a big enough business to have our own in house Marketing team but we now feel like we have one with the support of Click Through Digital Ltd. Its such a relief to be able to bounce our ideas off the professionals there and that they can then implement our ideas and put them into action. We can highly recommend Click Through Digital Ltd to support you with your business marketing needs – as you may not have the time to develop them because of actually doing your day to day business. A big Thank you from the team at 1st Mortgage Services.”
“Very many thanks to Stephen, Helen and the team at Click Through Digital for our fantastic new website. Our brief to the team was to design a technical website keeping it as simple and engaging as possible. From start to finish the team were professional and extremely helpful, resulting in a seamless transaction. We are totally delighted with the result, it’s exceeded our high expectations!”
