Laurie goes above and beyond for our site and social media. Every time I look at the graphics to promote our events, I think 'that has to be Laurie, those images are way above the pay grade of our volunteers'. Our web site is fantastic and it has really changed how volunteers and the public interact with the Salmon Enhancement Society - it definitely upped our brand and visibility on the Sunshine Coast and off.
As a travel writer I spend a lot of time at airport gates and perusing travel sites. Sadly, most travel resource pages read like one gigantic boring postcard. Laurie McConnell tells it like it is, with edgy humour, great enthusiasm and authentic information that is truly helpful. Shining through it all is her genuine love for all things Coastal...Bigpacific is my go-to site.
Bigpacific Creative has been my go-to designer, strategist and web support Queen of Geekdom for over six years. If something goes wrong - BAM! - she is there. She keeps me sane and my web site and followers happy. Plus we always have snorkage (hilarity) whenever we get together. Who gets that AND professionalism from their web designer?
We have been with Bigpacific.com from the beginning, and it is the only online marketing that works. Your site is the only site to send us real enquiries that lead to bookings for our sailing classes and tours.
Since redoing our web site with Laurie at Bigpacific Creative in 2013 and adding a separate mobile site in 2014, our sales are up over 20% and we are having our best year ever for the Resort. I know for every dollar I invest into my digital strategies I will make an extra 30% return. Our online bookings have more than doubled last year which I can see is related to the web site for sure. Bigpacific Creative created and sent out a newsletter recently and within 20 minutes I had 4 large bookings!
Laurie of Bigpacific Creative put together the website for a new organization that I just started – 100 Women Who Care on the Sunshine Coast. From the first contact with Laurie, I was impressed by her preparation, attention to detail and responsiveness. We exchanged a couple of emails and I shared with her the idea behind the group and a couple of other similar websites from other groups. We then set up a face-to-face meeting. She came to our meeting having done her homework and seemed to know exactly how it could all look and function. In the face of that, I was totally comfortable having her take the idea and running with it. She guided me through setting up the accounts needed for hosting, emailing, and communication. She even wrote the content for the pages. Turnaround time was very quick. And, feedback from one of the local newspaper people who reviewed the website recently was ‘well, that’s a clear, straightforward website.’ I feel Laurie went above and beyond and I would definitely use her again. Thank you, Laurie and Bigpacific Creative.
Over the past 10+ years I've been lucky enough to have had Laurie at Bigpacific Creative Design create two websites for me (http://www.ATasteforTravel.ca and http://www.MichelePeterson.com) and customize WordPress themes and plugins, handle maintenance from optimization to security, do troubleshooting, offer hosting recommendations, write marketing copy and more. Not only is she a trusted support provider but she always goes above and beyond the tasks needed to complete my WordPress projects and is 100% committed to helping my business succeed. Real people, real talent, real commitment - a rare find.Blogger, A Taste for Travel
Laurie has done all our web and design work for Feastro the Rolling Bistro for a number of years now, and it is always a pleasure to hear and see her ideas take shape. She has excellent business sense, and adds a nice touch of both humour and edginess to her/our work. She has also introduced us to many other strategic business partnerships on the coast. She is one of, if not the most passionate and dedicated proponents of the whole Sunshine Coast business community and we'd recommend her and her design team wholeheartedly!!Owner, Feastro the Rolling Bistro
