What our Customers say...
"Be Smart Media have been our web design company of choice for some considerable time now. They have achieved first rate results in terms of Google position for us and recently added a mobile site with click to call and click to text functions. We had no idea this technology was even available to us and certainly not at that price... thank you!"

"We have worked with Be Smart Media for a number of years now and have always been very happy with the level of expertise and asistance they have provided us with. Our website is a very important part of our business at peak times generating 5-10 serious enquiries per week for our catering business.... thank you!"

"We have recently upgraded our website, which has been with Be Smart Media for years now, to be fully mobile phone friendly and Pete at Be Smart Media also had it redesigned to make it really modern. We had been live with the new site for a month when we were approached by Hatfields Furniture, who had looked at our site and had been impressed with how we looked as a company. We discussed concessions in their store and now have numerous fireplaces in their store with advertising too. Thanks in part to Be Smart Media we now have a working relationship with the premier furniture supplier in Colchester."

What our Customers say..."Well I honestly could not be happier with my website or my mobile site. The Google Adwords campaign Be Smart Media created and manage for me generates most of my enquiries. I regard Be Smart Media as an integral part of my business... I could not do without them!"
What our Customers say..."Although we are a national brand, we wanted a local feel to our business and started with a new website. We needed advice on all areas, from how the graphics would look, number of pages, layouts, links and overall feel appropriate for our business. Once we had the overall design agreed and the content produced, we had a fantastic new, mobile friendly website within 4 weeks. This, coupled with only 2 hours training needed by our staff to update the website as needed for the future, means that I would highly recommend Be Smart Media for website design and creation."
