What People Say About Us – Client Testimonials
“There is nothing more frustrating than having a vision for your website and not being able to make it happen! I found the “perfect” WordPress theme, reflecting the look I wanted for my website but getting it there turned out to be a steep and time consuming learning curve with minimal progress.
The best decision I made was to contact Michelle from Web Matters. Michelle picked up the challenge of my fledgling website and ran with it. She quickly grasped my vision, incorporated the elements I had chosen and then took it to the next level.
I am now the proud owner of a gleaming new website; all completed within record time and to spec. I can now confidently direct clients to my website knowing it reflects well on both my business and on me as an individual.” Suzanne Teague, Celebrant for You

“I Googled several web designers and it was Michelle’s site that stood out from all the others I viewed. Her content spoke multitudes regarding website optimization. From the moment we co-responded I found Michelle’s knowledge and enthusiasm a delight and she quickly gained an insight as to what my requirements were.
From day one of going live with my new site I have received phone calls and a constant stream of emails – from real estate agents, film companies and even overseas investors who have properties here in New Zealand.
My business venture in home staging is now an exciting one – I now am receiving the vital and necessary contacts through my website, thanks to Michelle’s expertise. I no longer have to go ‘cold calling’ which doesn’t work very well for me. They are all now chasing me!” Lorraine Wilson, Housedressings
WordPress is the leading content management system for all types of websites. It is used to run millions of websites and blogs around the world. We’ve been developing websites in WordPress since 2007 and believe it to be the most user-friendly content management system currently available. Due to it’s ease of use our clients make more out of there website presence as they are empowered to update their websites on a frequent basis.
WordPress websites can be updated via a web browser like Safari, Firefox or Internet Explorer, or via a smart phone or Ipad (you just need the Iphone or Android application for WordPress installed). We think that’s pretty neat.
