Even though Businessmagnet is widely regarded as the UK’s leading online business to business directory, we’re always delighted when our customers give us positive feedback. This is a small selection of what some of our customers have said about us:
Andy Atkinson at AK Rubber talks about how Businessmagnet has helped the firm increase its turnover by 50% and encourages other businesses to also promote themselves on the UK’s leading online B2B directory.
Owen Batham, Sales and Marketing Director at Elite Precast Concrete talking about how Businessmagnet helps the Telford firm stay 10 steps ahead of their competitors.
John Waight at Abbey Polythene talks about how online marketing has become the only way to promote a business in modern times, how Businessmagnet helps new customers find him on search engines and how the directory has made a huge positive impact on his business.
Jamie Richmond at AB Group talking about how he achieved instant results for his business and how the firm has not looked back since it started advertising with the UK's leading B2B directory.
We are happy clients of business magnet having been with the
directory for over 2 years now. I see it as a valuable component
of our internet marketing mix. From initial call through page
design up to renewal I have always received excellent and
knowledgeable service and advice from Ian who is in contact
regularly and not just at renewal time.
The advert has generated a high level of B2B sales and product enquiries, which has been a contributing factor in our move to larger premises and a large increase in turnover in 2014.
Excellent integration of analytics lets me see at a glance click through calls and more. I have deemed Business magnet so successful for us I have increased spending by 50% this year and I am happy with the early results from this in 2015.
I recommend it as an excellent marketing solution to target B2B in the UK.
Since I joined in August 2012, Businessmagnet has provided a superb service both in terms of website traffic, new business enquiries and also customer service from my account manager Justin. He has always kept in regular contact with me, updating me of the performance of my campaign and also any new features which Businessmagnet have released which could benefit me. I have been advertising with another very well known online UK B2B directory for some time but ever since I joined Businessmagnet I noticed a massive upturn in traffic. In fact, my Businessmagnet campaign has been outperforming the other campaign by six times! I upgraded my campaign in 2013 and noticed another rise in website traffic and enquiries and I have again upgraded my campaign in 2014 and expect to see a further increase. I would strongly recommend Businessmagnet to any UK business looking to promote themselves and generate new business enquiries from the internet. The service really is superb and I have been thoroughly satisfied with how they have managed my account
I was sceptical at first, we took out a small listing for 6 month, they threw in a product banner or two to show what could happen. Sure enough in that time we started to receive noticeable amounts of traffic from their site.
We took the opportunity to expand our profile page to make the most of our listing. Two years down the line we’re still here, now with two listings, and over 50% of our web traffic comes from a Businessmagnet. we receive traffic statistics from our website host, the stats Business Magnet send me each month tie up exactly with my host.
As I run my own business and am always extremely busy I need a company that can manage my advertising for me, any updates etc, and someone just keeping an eye for me. Businessmagnet does just that ... Justin Gutteridge to be precise!
I find his experience invaluable, and he is always looking at ways for my company to stand out from the crowd. Customer service is always A1 .. and so is the price .. extremely competitive against other companies, friendly, professional and totally reliable. Plus due to being so busy I can totally trust that Justin is my eyes when it comes to my advertising, and also advising and helping with my own website as well. I
have tried other similar companies in the past but Businessmagnet ticks all my boxes! we have a really good working relationship and Justin has got to know my business and how Cholcroft works which is what you need to do when advertising it!
Business has definitely got busier and also helps my Google rating too. Would I recommend Businessmagnet ... YES of course I would ... will I be advertising with them again ... OF COURSE I will ... - 05/10/2016
Thank you very much Ian for the work you and your colleagues
have been doing for us over the past 7-8 years. Everything is
working very well. The banners and the rest of the advertising
package we have is generating an excellent level of enquiries, I
am more than happy with what we have invested with you and the
return that we are getting. In fact, we are now in the process
of recruiting an extra member of staff to cope with the
additional demand and influx of phone calls since upgrading our
advertising contract with you again.
We look forward to working with you for many more years to come.
I would like to thank both you and the team for the work you guys have done. These entries are visually tremendous and have certainly made my day. Please pass on my comments to those involved.
Capital vending have been using Businessmagnet for a couple of years now and very pleased with the service provided. Compared to their rival companies, we feel Businessmagnet have offered us a first class service for value for money and would recommend to external colleagues. It has proven to be very successful for us and excellent value for money. We were originally advertising with another well known online B2B directory when we decided to give Businessmagnet a go, but once we saw how well Businessmagnet performed we decided not to renew our contract with the other directory and maintain our Businessmagnet listing. We certainly are run off our feet with the number of enquiries we are being given. Needless to say Businessmagnet was the right choice for us
Euro-Gas joined Businessmagnet in 2010 and we have really benefited from great results and conversion rates. In fact, due to outperforming competitive directories, we have decided to increase our 2011/12 advertising spend with Businessmagnet and cease using other business directories. Justin, our Business Manager, has been accommodating and highly efficient in directing us towards an effective package to meet our needs. We look forward to a successful 2012 with Businessmagnet playing an important role in our marketing strategy. Would Euro-Gas recommend Businessmagnet and the Team? Definitely.
We have been using Business Magnet's services since March 2007 and they have always maintained a first page presence on Google for our website. As a result of this we have enjoyed record numbers of enquiries from all over the world. For the money we spend I cannot imagine any other media activity coming anywhere close to this and am therefore very happy to recommend them. It is also worth mentioning the attentive service we receive from our account manager Ian Gibson who makes regular contact with us to assess performance and identify areas for potential improvement, it is very helpful and much appreciated.
The service received from Business Magnet has been excellent and the number of internet based leads we get has risen dramatically since we took an online marketing scheme out with them. Many of these leads have been much warmer due to the way our customers have had to provide more input to access either our own website or the details that BM provide, this in turn has lead to a higher conversion rate.
As Managing Director of Global Cutting Technologies, I have been aware, for many years now, of the value of internet based advertising and have invested heavily in this important area of advertising and promotion. I have used, and continue to use, numerous search engines and online directories in order to attract the significant number of enquiries we now enjoy which contribute to a high percentage of our turnover. Business Magnet is a more recent association for us, and I have been extremely impressed with everything they are doing for GCT. From initial registration to uploading of all our information, everything has been painless. Furthermore, everything is handled very promptly. We started to appear on the first page of various search engines very quickly and traffic to our website has certainly increased. It is good to deal with an outfit that is proficient, keen and competitive in this increasingly 'shark infested water' of the advertising world.
At the beginning of December 2010 I placed my website on both Business Magnet & another well know online directory. Given that I paid approximately 3 times the amount for the other website than I did for BM it is clear that BM have provided me with a much better overall value for money or Return on Investment.
We have been using the services of Business Magnet for the past few years now. To begin with, our marketing budget was quite small and we were reluctant. However, the account manager you assigned to us has been great! Besides increasing traffic to www.grippit.co.uk he has suggested additional marketing techniques that have all helped. This has been the best return on investment we have received from all of our online advertising. We look forward to continuing with this successful relationship for years to come.
WR Rack Solutions started using Businessmagnet last year to boost sales and I must say we are pleased with the results. We are kept up to date by our account manager and find the site easy to follow for our statistics. We get some very good enquiries from this method and find it good value for money. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Businessmagnet to any body looking to boost sales for their company. Keep up the good work and well done Business Magnet!
We would like to say how impressed we are with our advertisement with Businessmagnet. It looks professional, is very informative and includes many pictures of our products. All of this was initially setup and organized by Ian Gibson and his team who have been extremely pleasant and helpful. He has kept in regular contact to keep us up to date with extra links etc that may be beneficial to our Company. It is also beneficial to know which enquiries have come via Businessmagnet so that we can see that it was money well spent!! Nice doing business with you Businessmagnet!!
Dear Businessmagnet, Firstly I would like this opportunity to thank you for setting up a very professional looking advert that has met all of my requirements, and reaches out in all the right areas I wanted to get across to customers when viewing my page. More importantly I would like to thank you for the following... The coverage that I gain in your business directory across all the main products and services that I do is great, and because of that I am gaining a good volume of enquiries from the advert each month. On top of the coverage within your directory, I am also gaining excellent presence within the search engines under the main Magnet links I purchased, which is doing wonders for my company and bringing in even more enquiries. I can safely say that since the advert went live I can see a high increase of traffic into my website, and from this a higher amount of good solid enquiries that are turning into good sales for my business. I would also like to thank you Ian for the personal touch you have given me from when the advert went live, unlike any other directory or advertising campaign I have done, in you I have an account manager that actually cares about how the advert is doing, how it can be improved and making sure that it is working to its full capacity always. I must admit this is new to me but I appreciate it. So thank you all at Businessmagnet for providing me with an advertising package that actually does work, and long may it continue. I would have no hesitation in recommending any one to use your business directory because all round it is a brilliant product.
Dear Ian and Team, I would like to thank you for all the help and support over the last few months, we have recently upgraded our Business Magnet account and are very pleased with the results, we have seen our web clicks and email requests double since the upgrade! The service and support you provide is extremely helpful and professional and I would recommend anyone to use Business Magnet as a great return of investment.
We are all very pleased with the support we have received from Business Magnet. In particular Ian Gibson has been very helpful and informative about the various offers available and what would be best suited to our company. Since using Business Magnet the number of hits to www.marmox.com has increased somewhat and I'm sure much of which has lead to sales. I am happy to recommend Business Magnet as a very good and cost effective form of advertising.
We just wanted to write and thank you for all the help that you have given us in setting up our Business Magnet entry. As relative newcomers to the world of web directories we were somewhat wary of what we would be required to do in order to have a successful advertisement with you. The prospect of links and banners were all quite daunting and we rang you feeling as though we were going to be technically challenged! Yet when we actually talked to you you went through all the options with us and patiently advised us as to the best way to write and present our advertisement, select our keywords and magnet links. Not only that but your technical team designed us a banner that exactly met our requirements. We are really pleased with the end result. We would have no hesitation in recommending you and your company to any new business starting to market on the internet. The whole process is easy -regardless of whether or not you have much experience with computers. We always felt totally in control of the situation and able to ask any question we wanted. We look forward to a long and profitable association with you. Thank you all.
We have made a few mistakes which your potential customers might find helpful. Firstly, you offer very good 'word' development support, you have also given us a lot of help with a "mini" internet site on your directory - We have not spent enough time with you to help us achieve the best from this - It is worth taking the trouble to learn more about what Business Magnet do for business development, I am sure we are missing out here! Anyone new to the market will undoubtedly do more with you than without you. In our experience a business needs to discover the language customers are using to search for them. This is what takes time and needs very careful planning, people need expert help to achieve good results - You receive a great deal of this help as part of the Business Magnet service. I would recommend them to any business for a very honest and affordable service which produces good results and in our experience outperforms their competitors.
Just a message to thank you for your advice and help with our web activity. We have noticed a remarkable rise in enquiries and sales in the first six weeks of advertising with you. We have also noticed that we are reaching market places that we have traditionally found very difficult to get into. I can fully recommend your services and also the intelligent advice that you gave me when setting up the campaign.
While I had not heard of business magnet prior to them making contact, the results that I can see on my website analytics package show that they have out performed many of the larger competitors. The quality of the staff make them a very easy company to deal with, and I am also happy with the results in the search engine positions.
Firstly I would like to thank you and the rest of the team at Businessmagnet for the swiftness of getting my advert up and running within your directory. The advert looks very professional, and since the advert has been up and running within your directory I have been kept very busy with enquiries each and every month. This brings me onto my next point, I was promised a good amount of enquiries from the directory (which is happening) I was also promised good positioning in the search engines once this advert was up and running (again this is also happing). So I would just like to say thank you for providing me with exactly what I was expecting, it is refreshing and very satisfying to actually get what you pay for, and at a very reasonable price. So in short thank you Ian and all at Businessmagnet, may the enquiries continue to flood in.
I wanted to let you know how pleased we are with Business Magnet. After only being with Business Magnet for four weeks and already we are receiving a stream of regular enquiries and the ranking for our target key words has improved dramatically. In addition, I would like to thank you for your professional, swift and efficient handling of setting up our advert/magnet links - our enhanced listing was live within 24hours of placing the order!! Many thanks again, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend your service to other businesses who want to raise their profile within their target audience.
Dear Businessmagnet, We are very pleased with the professional service from Businessmagnet, the package you recommended was ideal for our particular requirements and extremely good value. We were very impressed with the speed and efficiency in setting up our advertisement. We are confident that thanks to Businessmagnet our business will increase and put us ahead of our competitors.
Dear Michael Just to say how pleased we are with the service you and Businessmagnet have provided so far. It has been very professional and quick, having done exactly as asked, and we are already seeing positive enquiries and results on the search engines. Thank you very much, a pleasure to deal with you.
The In Case Solutions website has been up and running for over five years now and realising that the internet is being used more widely, we have attempted to promote our site through various means, with mixed success. We have only been with Businessmagnet for a short while, but our advert and hence our presence on some search engines has risen dramatically, with subsequent increase in enquiries and traffic to our website. A search ranking of fifth out of 45,600,000 is not too bad, considering the global competition! In Case Solutions will be using The Businessmagnet Directory in our future advertising campaigns and would not hesitate in recommending them to others ( other than competitors naturally! ) looking for a stronger presence on the net.
Since using Business Magnet to promote our website the traffic to our site has increased significantly due to Business Magnets excellent coverage across the search engines. This has enabled our company to increase turnover significantly and market more efficiently and cost effectively, Business magnet has also provided us with a good level of support during the campaign.
I just wanted to drop you a quick email to extend my gratitude to the team at Business Magnet. Ideasbynet is an online business which can only thrive through attaining top place search engine listings. Our search engine specialists noticed over a period of time that businessmagnet was attaining consistently high placed listings under a range of industry sectors and we felt we had to give these boys a go. For a comparatively modest fee, when compared with adwords, businessmagnet has been able to fulfill its promise and not only provide additional top page listings but also to provide high quality traffic to our website which ultimately results in sales. There are few companies out there that can achieve top place listings and many pretend to do so but fail, businessmagnet stands out amongst all the competition as a professional and dedicated organization that really does deliver. What's more, unlike the competition, the links that are given back to your website are of high value due to the fact that they do not employ cloaking tactics to hide your url from the search engines... something which is always worth watching for as many directories deliberately employ such tactics to ensure they do not pass out any valuable page rank. In conclusion we will definitely be investing more of our budget with businessmagnet over the coming months and would have no hesitation in recommending them to any of our clients.
AK Rubber & Industrial Suppliers Limited have been striving to achieve a good presence on the internet for a few years now. Unaware of how it really all works, we have in the past enlisted in a number of directory services, some of the big names hoping for the best. Unfortunately I can't say I have ever been over the moon with any of these other directories. Well that was then, that was before I had a call from Michael at Businessmagnet. Everything was explained clearly, we weren't expected to understand all that was said and from the word go I was given confidence. After signing up for a package with businessmagnet I have experienced nothing but professionalism and efficiency from their team. Our enquiries have increased greatly, the presence we now have on the internet is fantastic. Any other directory doesn't even come close. Using our own in house monitoring to reconcile against Businessmagnets' iTraka, I can safely say that 9 out of 10 internet enquiries are as a result of our advert on Businessmagnet.
I first became aware of Business Magnet when they kept popping up when I was searching the internet. As they were always near the top I thought that it would be worthwhile to list JSC Rotational Limited with them. It was really easy and the basic entry was free. Shortly afterwards I was contacted by the guys at Business Magnet who explained the benefits of the (enhanced) packages. We were about to launch our website in January and one of our objectives was to get a high rating in the search engines, something Business Magnet promised. We signed up and have been amazed by the results - within days we were on the first page and enquiries have flooded in. It's not often that a service provider fully fulfils their sales pitch but in this case Business Magnet did. A great service!
I would just like to email this brief message of thanks to your company and Daniel, having found your directory on the internet it was a pleasure to use and after also deciding to advertise with you, I felt that I had to at least express my thanks in some way for the help and assistance you have given us.. In this day and age it was a pleasure to find a company that actually prides itself in its work and with staff that are friendly, helpful, replied to our enquiries promptly, and our listings were online in 24 hours. We are extremely impressed. I will be passing you more of our business and we will most certainly be recommending you to our business partners!
Dear Businessmagnet, Absolute Casing Limited love using Businessmagnet as we find the facility really positively impacts our results with advertising on the web. We find the Team at Businessmagnet a real pleasure to work with!
Following your compelling arguments a few months ago for me to take up the 'Magnet Links' option in the Business Magnet directory, I write to confirm that the decision to go ahead has already been vindicated. In addition to a high search engine ranking for our Magnet Link entry that occurred much faster than I expected, there has undoubtedly been a positive effect to the search ranking of our own site. The combined effect on our web visibility is excellent and I thank you for the professional and courteous support given by your team during the setup of our listing. I have worked with a number of web directory services and from my experience to date; I can comfortably say that the service and results from Business Magnet are way ahead of your competition. Thank you.
Dear Businessmagnet Our online printing business ranks fairly well in the search engines which generates traffic. The golden rule of online selling is no traffic = no sales! We also use (Pay per Click) advertising which generates additional traffic - at a cost. We are also listed in a variety of online directories - that deliver little traffic! By comparison, I must say that Businessmagnet delivers amazing levels of traffic at exceptional prices. This means an excellent ROI. It really is one of those business no brainers to use your services, whether you are an online or bricks and mortar business!
I write to congratulate you and your company on the excellent service and results we have received over the last twelve months. Return on investment is always tricky to ascertain in a fast flowing marketplace but the Brown Brothers Group have been able to track with ease, not only the leads directly being sent via Businessmagnet but also the telephone calls that we have a strict policy on monitoring. We conservatively estimate that we have received ten times our initial outlay in the last year and many of those clients have become repeat customers. Manufacturing is becoming harder by the day in the UK so it's reassuring to know that we can rely on a service that provides us with a competitive edge.
Businessmagnet have provided excellent value for money compared to other directories on the internet and analytic results since joining have proved what an excellent service they provide. Since joining we are spending half the amount of that with a competing directory and are gaining more referrals to our website with Businessmagnet. Our profile was designed and online in a fast and professional manner, replicating our website to create an excellent visual advert. The Account Manager has been there from the start to help improve the advert and gain further referrals to our site. Businessmagnet is a great site and it's not just good value for money, it beats the competition in all areas.
We would like to thank you for your invaluable help and advice in setting up our Businessmagnet advertising. You were the only company out of the other popular directories that really listened to what we wanted to achieve and have acted on that. Since advertising with yourself we have had more enquires in the last 3 months since working with you, than we have for the last 9 months advertising with others. Your staff have always kept us updated with the best way forward with the search engines and have changed our advert accordingly. We are really starting to reap the benefits of this now with vastly increased web traffic which has led to many more enquiries. In fact we have just received an order through Businessmagnet that has not only paid for the advert, but allows us to invest with you again. We just wish we had known about Businessmagnet earlier.
Although only being with Businessmagnet for 3 weeks, I have seen an increased amount of traffic to my website and have received numerous enquiries from potential customers. One email enquiry from a customer that found me on Businessmagnet has already turned into an order which has well and truly covered the cost of my entire years advertising. Thank you very much Businessmagnet. We look forward to a long and successful advertising partnership.
Teknomek signed up with Businessmagnet last summer and have been very happy with the results. Our presence on search engines has increased dramatically, and Businessmagnet brings in between 20-30% of referral visitors to our website every month. Thanks to Businessmagnet our online presence has substantially improved, and our web sales are looking good too.
Walters & Walters wanted to let you know how very pleased we are with the responses we are getting from our modest entry in Businessmagnet. We are also advertising with a competing on-line directory and had no idea our presence on the internet with them was so poor. Within a very short period it was obvious that our ranking within the major search engines was excellent and we are getting very many enquiries for all types of Industrial Marking Products. We are working hard on a new website and hope in the near future that we can call on Businessmagnet to improve things even more!!
Just a brief note to thank you for the prompt professional service your company has provided Titan Arctic Store. The innovative art work you supplied as a banner for us, has been the talking point from a number of our advertising companies we do business with. So well done to you artwork dept. The presentation on the web page has also been received very well. Once again thank you for your help and assistance.
Just a few lines to let you know we are very pleased with what you have done for us. There are so many directories out there it's hard to know who to choose, but it seems your prominence in the search engines coupled with your professionalism and knowledge makes for a great choice. It's hard to believe how many people use the internet, didn't realise so many people would be looking for my products online. Keep those enquiries coming!!
