“I had Craig at Web Tonic build and optimize my website. He was very helpful with this process (not being computer savvy myself). He guided me through the process and (importantly) stuck to the time-frame he set out at the beginning. Craig is always contactable and proactive in his management of my site. He has got great results for me in optimizing my site to near the top of Google searches – and all for a very reasonable price. I have no hesitation in recommending people to Craig (and regularly do!).”
