Paul's common sense, data driven, approach to marketing has given us results that previous (very costly) agencies failed to deliver.

“Paul D’Ambra is a one of a kind. Unique in every way. He is a freelance website design and marketing service. After scouring for freelancers online I was hitting a dead end. I couldn’t find someone with broad enough skills and the approach I needed.

As a small business coach, I couldn’t make a mistake in this space. My clients were all watching my progress very closely. Paul completely changed my perception on what could be done from our very first discussion. He was incredibly detailed oriented. Skilled in contemporary marketing strategy. He drove me to new benchmarks.

I thought I was driven and goal oriented until Paul showed me that he had gears I hadn’t seen before. He created a list of tasks and content for me to rip into. He was on me every day to get it done. He guided me on best practice and gave me wonderful suggestions when I hit an impasse, meanwhile he was rebuilding my website with a stronger presence for SEO and organic growth, better content and with a niche in the business coaching market.

The site was lightning fast. Paul wouldn’t rest until the job was done. It was so seamless. Something worth noting is Paul’s huge experience in photography so he has an elite eye for imagery and branding. I couldn’t be any happier and will continue to work with Paul as well as recommending him to my clients. He will not disappoint!”

"Loved working with Paul. Paul is simply a perfectionist and puts in 100 percent to his craft. I don’t like recommending anyone because it always backfires on me but happy to recommend Paul to anyone because I’m extremely confident of his skills and passion towards his craft!

He gave us a brand new website design, new brand profile and even helped with things like how we quote clients, how to invest money and plan the steps to grow our business.

We got results within the first few weeks with phone calls, quote requests and jobs we won that we didn’t get last year when we used an agency.

The difference has been huge Best of all he shows us proof of the results and pushes us to get more results."
"Paul’s D'Ambra's exceptional ability to collect, clean and analyse large data from various sources was shown when he conducted our recent market review.

His vast experience showed through when he was able to quickly summarise clear and concise strategic goals leading onto actionable tasks for future results in a transparent, down to earth manner."

"I recently engaged Paul D'Ambra to conduct an audit of my websites and he did an excellent job.

In fact, he went over and above the work he'd scoped out because he wanted my business to benefit from the insights from his data analysis. He even gave me additional tools that will help me in the future.

I found the work he did incredibly comprehensive and was singularly impressed by his deep understanding of SEO and ability to recommend useful ways for me monetise my websites.

I am now re-engaging Paul to help me further. To be honest, I hardly ever recommend people on Linkedin but given the benefit I've had from Paul's work, I wanted to make others aware of his abilities."

"I engaged Paul to provide marketing inputs to help our brand generate more leads. In a very short time he uncovered a number of marketing execution gaps, especially with our digital marketing.

What impressed us was his ability to very quickly grasp lots of technical information and deliver a marketing audit that gave us a framework of practical steps across our sales & marketing teams to improve our results.

12 months on and Paul’s mix of website and seo development has seen the brand enjoy record visitor numbers, our highest ever organic search volumes & a constant flow of quality, Australian leads.

"Paul helped our business with new website, Google My Business page and saved me thousands on Google Ads being wasted and even cancelled a dodgy Yellow Pages contract.

I got more leads & enquiries in 6 weeks than i got in previous 6 months, I was blown away, he works fast and just knew what I needed to get done. I cancelled my previous seo agency who were ripping me off & he proved they were doing nothing.

I don’t have time to look at all the stuff, but he sends all the data and proves everything to then get more results (he is a pain in the bum like that). If you are sick of dodgy seo people try this guy"

"I worked with Paul as HP was going through a lot of change with our merger with Compaq.

Paul managed to restructure our T2 retail business in record time to deliver what were unprecedented results - not only in sales, but also inventory management & business processes.

Paul was then given the significant responsibility of managing the Harvey Norman business which he managed to grow to the point that HP won the hardware supplier of the year less than 6 months later - a massive achievement, considering that we were struggling there before Paul came in.

Paul's ability to assess a situation; determine best course of action; ensure win-win for all parties and his tenacity to see that through to the right end result is something I haven't seen in many people.

His results speak volumes for his ability, especially given his roles have been in diverse channels such as retail, wholesale & distribution"
Vickram Bedi Senior Director at HP
VICKRAM BEDI

Paul's extensive knowledge about business marketing, advertising, social media platforms and website development is outstanding. His determination to see us reach our goals is most appreciated.

Thanks for being a part of our team and we will be sure to call on you again."

Paul has a continued interest in programs related to leadership and development. He has instituted many impressive programs and it has been an honour to consult with him on some of the various projects over the years.
