I have known Jeanette for a couple of years now, we met at the Hay House “Have you got a book in you” Conference as finalists. We instantly took a liking to one another and were inseparable that weekend, having lots of fun and taking lots of opportunities.

Recently I had to ask for a refund on a website being made by another company as the creators were very unprofessional and even started asking for very personal information such as my social media passwords. Something didn’t feel right, then when they started to not show up on appointment times without any notice time after time, I got fed up and asked for my money back. Fortunately with Jeanette’s help I received a full refund on the same day that I asked.

So then I did what I felt in my heart all along and immediately booked in to have my website designed through Jeanette’s company “House Design.” Jeanette was extremely efficient and keen to get down to business and get it done. I found this very professional and was very happy with the fast responses as I am someone who also tries to get things done as soon as I can.

She answered all of my E-mails and correspondence instantly, I always knew what was expected of me and if anything would cost extra. She gave me a few nudges and reminders to send things in too which was great as I have been so busy. She explained things to me in simple to understand terms when I didn’t understand some things. And she was very happy to answer questions I had.

I fell in love with the template of the website as soon as I saw it. I was over the moon with how it looked I wanted to show everyone straight away. She sent me images of each page and was happy to make adjustments to anything I wanted changed around. I viewed the website on my phone and couldn’t believe how easy it was to navigate around on. My previous website didn’t line up properly on the phone and things seemed to be a bit out of shape.

She sent me invoices with accurate descriptions of the work she was going to have done and was true to her word. She gave me receipts. She gave me a log in sheet with all of my details on it that I have put on file. She sent me instructions on how to edit things and run my website without having to constantly ask her to do it for me.

I didn’t realize just how unprofessional the other company was until I dealt with Jeanette. They never even gave me their ABN number or an invoice for my payments. I wish I had just gone to her in the first place. It went live very quickly and I am extremely happy with it. In the first week I had almost 1,000 unique website visitors come and take a look at my new website and read my blogs. I have already started to get business through my online booking system too.

Thanks for the great work Jeanette!

Do you need to rebrand your business?

Your brand is the public face of your business.
No business today can afford to rest on its laurels. Your business may be keeping up with economic and market changes but is your brand keeping pace?

Whatever your reason for rebranding; be it economic and operational expansion, technological innovation, growth and  change, your company’s brand must remain consistent with the latest and greatest your business has to offer.

Is you logo still modern or could it be refined to meet current design trends? Have you introduced social media? Is your website up to date, current, fresh & modern? Are your business and profile photo’s current?

Benefits of a rebrand: –

1. Gain competitive advantage
2. Stimulate growth
3. Long-term market expansion
4. Innovation = profitability

At Design House I completely rebrand my website and promotional images nearly every two years. Check out the new portfolio section of my website HERE!

“I had been toying with the idea of having a Social Media Presence via Facebook for some time. I could see the value and potential but had no idea what to do or where to start.  Friends suggested creating one myself, it is easy they said, well perhaps for them, but not for an over forty with limited IT or marketing skills. I had seen promotions by Design House on my personal Facebook page and contacted Jeanette. Well happy to report what a great experience it has been, very professional, timely and great value. I had a mindset that is was going to be challenging but Jeanette took over and masterfully completed the page. I suggest you have a look, I have received great feedback already on how great it looks.”
