My Experience with Web-Active
I have been involved with attempting to build websites for years and I have worked with many web people and I can honestly say that the team at Web Active are like a breath of fresh air. I am blown away by their value, their professionalism and the quality of their work.
From the moment I decided that my time was best spent using my talents and skills, doing what I love to provide my clients with an exceptional product and that everything I’m not so good at I must outsource to people who are talented and love what they do, something magical happened in my business.
So after having spent a fortune on web products as well as wasting my time learning and doing things that I really didn’t have to, I knew I had to not give up on finding amazing web people. I know first-hand that I am far from being alone on this quest as many, if not all of my friends and business associates also have the same web challenges.
With the bit between my teeth, I emailed every single web company and individual in the Cape Town area. All of them, and that’s a lot. I am very happy to say that Debby from Web Active was one of the very first to reply.
She instantly showed empathy from reading my long email and not only asked all the right questions but listened to what I wanted and confidently tailored a package to me.
Next she suggested that we met. Now my business partner and I are not the average clients which did not seem to bother anyone and from the moment saw Debby’s big, genuine smile and felt her enthusiasm and energy, we knew that we wanted to work with her.
She listened intently to what we wanted, nothing was too much trouble for her. I almost thought this was all too good to be true but no. Debby is the real deal and she knows her stuff. I’m not an easy customer as I know a little which can be dangerous but it was clear that Debby is an expert in her field and she knows what she needs to know in a super-fast paced industry. A great looking website is pretty useless if no one finds it or it doesn't engage its visitors so finding out that her and the team would look after EVERYTHING, from all the SEO and social media to the artwork was music to my ears.
The team that she works with are equally as amazing. Louise the designer is super talented and all her art work has made our jaw drop, she has gone the extra mile and helped do things for our book that I never expected would be part of the package. We are blown away with her service and the quality of her work.
And then there is Nova, the extremely talented and incredibly likable web developer who can literally do anything you want. This is real power and he just gets on with it. Instead of making things complicated he actually thanks us for being so fussy and knowing exactly what we want as well as putting his own ideas and his super cool style into his work.
We cannot fault anything about the team and the way they work. They have always done what they said they will do and when they said they will do it. They have repeatedly exceeded my expectations again and again providing exceptional value. What more can you ask than that? We wish everyone we worked with shared the same inspirational qualities.
So we cannot recommend them highly enough. Not only will we continue to work with them for as long as possible but will use them while we are based in our offices located all over the world. The web Active team are proudly our web people for the long run and will use them for all our web projects where ever we are in the world. I have and continue to recommend their services to my closest friends and business associates. Get on board with them as soon as you can before they cannot take on any more clients and have to put their prices up.
Keep up the great work and thank you for everything.

The Business Zone approached Web Active just over a year ago in desperate need of obtaining an online presence. They were extremely professional in making sure that we had a fantastic, responsive website up in speedy time! They also setup all of our social media and did our SEO, all for a fraction of the price. We have been very happy with their work ethic, and recommend them to anyone in need of Digital Marketing!

We at AC Jewellers approached Web-active with a vision and mission for our company, which was taken into the fullest consideration, enthusiasm, creativity and positive input. They have been diligent and have over exceeded our expectations with regards to our vision and mission. We are pleased to have them part of our marketing team.

When I first decided to have a website developed for my business I was not much concerned with the cost attached to the service, rather I was mostly searching out firms which could;
1. Understand me as an individual with a special skills set, which I wanted to turn into a profitable yet life-changing business.
2. I was looking for a firm which have the relevant creative team but yet diverse set of skills amongst them to tap into my creativity and develop a product, which was already alive in my imagination.
3. I was looking for a firm who assigned a personalized project leader/co-ordinator to whom I will have direct access and who would treat me as if I was their one-and-only client as well as the most valued customer.
4. Lastly, I was looking to spend my hard earned money on a packaged deal which will do every and all things on my behalf without me “really” lifting a finger and would expect to cost me “my arms & my legs”
So, should you be in the market to have a complete branding package with an online presence at a monthly minimal retainer, yet huge on benefit then Web-Active is where you should go and Ms Debby Wall will be right there to meet you one quarter of the way!
And has a bonus! You get a personal touch thrown into the package; and that is regular contact by the MD Matthew himself!
In conclusion, I guess what I am saying I got Professional, Efficient, Effective, Economical, Scale-able and Super-creative service from Matthew, Debby and their team!
Thanks guys and I am already on my way back for more!

webactive's work is of the highest quality and professionalism and their level of communication was 100%, they were able to advise me of the best way to go about ideas that I was unsure of and I cannot emphasise how easy they made it for me.
I cannot recommend them highly enough and would have no hesitation in promoting them to others. They exceeded my expectations delivering on time and within budget. Well done webactive!
As usual webactive have delivered an expert service and a thoroughly professionally finished product. I am a 100% satisfied customer and highly recommend this company to any prospective customer. Communication 100%, Subject matter expertise %100, Friendly and helpful advice 100% and value for money 100%.
Webactive offers the highest quality services possible. They went far beyond what I expected in service, design, expertise, communication, responsiveness, timeliness and especially price.
I will recommend Webactive to anyone wanting high quality web design and SEO at an affordable price.
Webactive exceeded my expectations every step of the way. Even after getting them my materials a few days late, they still met the deadline requested in the original RFP.
Working with Webactive was easily the best experience I've had to date on eLance.
I highly recommend them for any business looking to develop a flash website and I will definitely use them again if/when another similar project presents itself.
Webactive is probably the best provider for web design services on elance. I've used several vendors on elance for similar services and none of them compare to Webactive.
I recommend them for anyone looking to design a flash based website.
My clients and I are always happy with the quality work we get from Webactive. I highly recommend them for any flash design work on the web.
Very professional, affordable and easy to work with. I'll definitely work with them many more times in the future.

"As a small business owner, I signed up with Web-Active in 2009.
They have assisted me with my website, which they did within the time perimeter set by me and were patient and helpful with my numerous changes.
I have used them extensively for marketing materials such as flyers, posters and designs. They have always been quick to deliver and the quality of product has always been good!
They are a young and enthusiastic company who understand my needs and have assisted and advised me as my business has gone from strength to strength!"
"I thank you and your team for the excellent service over the past 11years.I can safely say 80% of my property enquiries have come form the website which you designed and maintain.I have had compliments from other large international Estate Agency firms!Of course everytime a new property is listed by you,nothing but praise for the photos.Nothing is to much trouble and although my business is in the country, never an excuse not to do the shoot.
Once again thank you and I look forward to another 11 years with you!"
"Web-Active designed my website in 2007 and have hosted same ever since. I was initially extremely surprised at the “low” set up/design fee, as I had envisaged these costs being a lot more than what was actually charged at the outset.
Since the website went live, almost three years ago, I can honestly say that I have never experienced any significant downtime or problems with the site and I have always enjoyed fantastic service from the support team at Web-Active!
The Web-Active team have always been communicative and supportive on all levels and I look forward to my continued association with them in hosting and maintaining my website for many years to come."
Charles Baker (CEA) - Managing Agent.
"We approached Web-Active during October 2009 to design our website and marketing related documents (email, signatures, company logo, business cards, letterheads and layout of company profile document).
I was pleased with the response time in which they replied to my emails and the willingness to meet with me after hours to discuss my website and marketing requirements.
Although I picked up a few cosmetic issues these were immediately rectified which I appreciated.
I also appreciated the fact that I was allowed to request minor cosmetic changes to the website after it was completed, this was done at no cost to myself.
Web-Active’s turnaround time was good.
I would however recommend that Web-Active hire a software tester as part of their website design process.
Overall, I was pleased with the completed website and marketing material produced and would make use of their services in the future."
