"I found it pretty straightforward to use and understand the control panel.

The content was clear, and I really didn't have much difficulty - and I know very little about any of this! I had no trouble following your clear directions.

I think the timing of emails was probably just right. I was able to plod through them steadily, and it didn't feel like it was too many all at once.

At the minute, Darren, I think for a complete novice like myself, there was enough information/topics for my needs. Maybe for a person more familiar with the whole thing, more could be put in, but I don't know what that would be!

It is also very reassuring that you say that it's no problem if I need to ask for help, and more than just once. I know people often say things like this, but in actual fact, when asked for help, they really don't want to be bothered. It doesn't seem to be the case with you! I am aware also that I have had a few queries, and I am grateful for your assistance with them.

(Comments in response to emails sent to all new customers to give help and advice about using the control panel and enhancing their site)."

"FROM ADI Training forum

I just wanted to add to this thread, I spoke to Darren for the first time at 9.30 this morning, by 13.00 my new site was live.

I was very impressed with Darrens knowledge and also the fact that he delivered exactly what he promised.

I'm over the moon with the result

Yet another reason why this site is the best help out there for PDIs and ADIs

Better than subscribing to any magazine IMO"

"I must just mention that my driving school was already doing rather well before I had your web site but since I introduced your web site two years ago my business has shot through the roof, without doubt because of your help.

I am turning away business every week as I am so busy. Without doubt the web site has paid for itself and more! Thank you so much!"

"Having seen some of Darren's work I decided to go alone and have Darren build my website , glad I made the right choice, the whole process was made so easy with little effort from myself, highest recommendation."

"Hi Darren just a note to let you know that my original website (which I thought was a good site) only produced one new pupil in about six months. Since having the website you designed on average I get two or three new pupils a week. But more important I don't have to do any sales patter, they just ask to be booked in!

Many thanks"
Kess Driving School
"As my existing site got a bit dated ,I found Driving instructor sites .I had a read at the comments left by others and decided to give them a go,from the first call Darren spent time explaining the process to me not in a hurry to get of the phone,after the call I made my mind up to place the order for the new site .
Within hours Emma had my draft site was ready, I asked for the template to be changed and again the new draft was through in hours ,I would like to thank Emma especially for her work on the site and her patience for putting up with all the changes and emails with information for the new site you have done a fantastic job guys and would defiantly recommend to others."

"Since Cramlington and blyth have gone back onto page one (last week) I've had 15 calls, 13 booked!! In a week! Just for blyth and Cramlington...

I'm wondering where I'm gonna find instructors from to give all these pupils to! I took a instructor on last Monday and he's full!!

I've had a few of them myself and they said it was the website that sold them, it was very professional and easy to use. One said it was fast and works when others didn't. It's all about that website!

Darren's comments - Johns' site had slipped off Google page 1 to page 2 for a few of areas. The new mobile layout was released and automatically updated on his site and he was soon back up to page 1."

"We are absolutely delighted with our new website, it looks fantastic and represents the best value that money can buy. We had bookings within 2 hours of the website going live, our bookings ratio has more than doubled since our new website went live, it has already paid for itself.

The professional way you dealt with our enquiry and the speed you got our website up and running was amazing, a first class service all round. Even the customer care and after support is first class, faultless in every way.

Thank you very much, we consider ourselves very lucky to have found your services.

If any potential customer would like to know more about the service offered at this site, please feel free to contact us.

We would have no hesitation in recommending your services to other driving schools."

"Just want to say a big thank you for the service you have provided since starting with you.
Trusting my business name with someone like yourself was a little scary, but you guys have been great!!!!
Just want to wish you all a VERY merry Christmas and wish you all the success in the world for 2014.
People, generally don't appreciate businesses and just hammer down the price to get the lowest price possible, but I realise we are all in business to make a profit.
You guys offer a great service at a very reasonable price.

I have recommended you to 8 businesses already and will continue to do so.

All the best.

"Hi, thanks again! I asked for a page and it's on in 10 minutes! I couldn't ask for more, then I read the bit about adding a PayPal charge, I was thinking... How am I going to work out the 3.4% for every price? Then I click on the page edit like you said and it's there, and so easy to do. I just needed to click, you have made it so easy. Thank you :)

"I would just like to thank you both for all your efforts in getting my website and business up and running! Its very daunting to know who and what to trust, but you came highly recommended and to be honest have more than exceeded my expectations! My website is looking great and already Im having positive feedback and questions on who designed it. You have made it easy to navigate and both your on line support and replies to my endless e-mails have been first class!

I would have no hesitation in recommending you to any potential Driving Instructor, looking to set up a website and look forward to many successful years working with you. Your on line booking system is also a great idea providing immediate availability to customers at a reasonable cost.

Have a great 2014 and thanks both once again."

"Just want to say......

THANK YOU!! Thanks for making my new site so quick and getting up and running so fast, Yet again an amazing job from you and your team!! And seems so much easier to sort everything out, had everything done in no time. The area pages are much easier to add and the walk through on how to set your emails up was perfect!

Hopefully this time next year I'll have 5/6 Instructors!! I've got 1 already.

Had 15 pupils book with the new instructor in 10 days!!! I'm Loving the Page One Rank 1 for south shields... I'm always checking my ranks and nearly had a divorce as I keep reading my google ranks to her like I'm calling bingo numbers.. Ha."

"I have just got to put fingers to keys to give Darren and Emma a big thank you ... in this world good customer service is rare and in the website industry its even rarer (if that's a word).

As a company I have gone through 3 website companies and been let down or scammed by all 3 at a massive financial cost and mental cost also.

We have had our site with Darren now for about 6 months and to be honest I have never had customer service like it from any size company big or small. No job is to much trouble and even when I call and I am sure annoy Darren he is always on the end of the phone with a smile and a answer to our problems

That is priceless because when you care so much about your business and you find someone that cares about it also, you know your in safe hands

Darren and Emma this is just a massive thank you from me and Ali @ xlr8 Wales"

"I would like to thank you and Emma for completing my web site. Everyone who has seen it says how professional and clear it is, and I'm very happy with it. Before I contacted you I was quoted 1200 by another company and was told it will take between 4 - 8 weeks. You have done a much more efficient job and also saved me a lot of money. Thank you."

"Would just like to say a big thanks to instructor sites for all the work you do!!, very easy to work with you on changes to the sites when needed and when we first spoke on the phone about doing a website for myself I felt at ease and there was no hard sell, I'm not the most brilliance on the technical side of things but you make things nice and easy with the control panel to make simple changes to the site but even then your always on hand to help, also since doing the SEO work for my site I have seen it stay on page 1 for the area I cover.

Many thanks

Just had a feed back from one of my friends in London see below:

Hi Dave, Good to hear from you. I had a look at your excellent web site. It is easy to navigate and has loads of easily accessible information.

David Griffin
David Griffin Driving School
"I have a had a website with Darren for a few years now and he has turned my business into a highly successful one where all of my area pages are on Google first page!

Darren is always striving to make our websites better and better and recently he has introduced two new pages:

Firstly a Learning Styles page, where a customer can fill in a questionnaire to find out their learning style - great addition for any instructor who wants to adopt a client-centred approach with their customers.

Secondly a new diary page which includes automated lesson reminders, a student progress card so the customer can monitor there own development, and finally a reflective log so they can plan their own way forward.

I cannot thank Darren enough for what he has done for me and my business!

This man is a genius!"

"I wanted a website for my business and had been recommended to Darren by a fellow driving instructor who also had a website with driving instructor sites.

I decided to contact Darren and he was quick to answer any questions I had regarding the whole process. He designed me a draft and once I was happy with that the site was live!

It has given my business a completely professional look and the feedback I have received from new clients has been great, many say how informative the website is for anybody wanting to learn to drive.

I would also like to thank Emma as well for some additional work she did for me, which has really helped the image of business.
Even now if I have a query regarding my site the support Darren and Emma give is fantastic.

Many thanks to you both."

"Would just like to thank everyone who has worked on the new website, we all think it looks great. I would not hesitate to recommend you to others who are looking for a new site.

After my first enquiry, the site was live in just a few weeks*, and any problems were resolved straight away. Thanks for doing a great job and keep up the good work.

*A note from Darren.. This site has some custom features including an exclusive 'Hall of fame' feature which automatically puts passers photos and details onto a driving licence which took longer than usual. We normally have sites live within 2 days of ordering."

"The e-mails* were a welcome addition to your product. The content was perfect, it read well and lead me through the unknown areas of managing an Internet site. I have learned loads from the e-mails and have so much to try out which otherwise I would not have known about.

Already we are seeing an increase in potential customers contacting us compared to the now redundant site.

The timing I thought was spot on which allowed to learn on the drip feed!!! well done I look forward to continuing our business site with you,

Regards Dave,

*Note : Once a site goes live, you will receive a series of emails giving you tips and pointers on how to get the most from your site."
Dave Irvine

"(NOTE : Ians comments were feedback for emails sent following site going live.)

Content - Very helpful, self explanatory especially to a low computer user like me.
Readability - Mails made a lot of sense and very easy to understand & follow, still referring.
Timing - Ideal timing as they pushed me into reacting although still a few things to do.
Information - If anything comes to mind then I will gladly get in touch.

Having spoken to some about other web designers I landed lucky. Service, help can't be faulted. Will without doubt recommend your company."
