Some of our clients

What Our Clients Say


“I have been impressed with Dave's professionalism and expertise. He has achieved SEO improvements in a short period of time and helped us create effective google ad campaigns. After having disappointing experiences with two other SEO companies, Dave has been a welcoming discovery.”

DALE BENIC - Director


“The Signwise Group needed an SEO provider that understood our business model.  So, two years ago when our company reviewed its SEO provider and services, Dave became the obvious choice for our company.  We met with him and he explained everything we needed to know in plain language. His pricing is extremely good value for us, and he always promptly answers our questions and addresses any concerns we have and any changes we need.  He has kept our google rankings high at a fraction of the cost of our previous providers.  We highly recommend Dave and Ripple Effect for your business.”

DARRYL WILSON - Managing Director


“Fantastic service and even results to boot, I don't know much about SEO, which is why I got in touch with Ripple Effect, and i'm so happy I did, and my website is even happier!“



“We have been using Dave for the past two and a half years with great results. Dave as setup and run SEO, Google Adwords and remarketing campaigns which has really helped with growing our business and visibility online.”



“Guild & Spence Electrical have found the service supplied by Dave and Ripple Effect to be first rate, with good communication and a marked improvement in our web presence we have been extremely pleased with the results, many thanks for a great job.”

JAMIE MARDON - Service Department Manager


We recently had Write Ahead start looking after our Google Adwords campaigns which has not only left me with more time to focus on business development but has proven to be just as efficient and successful as the SEO work they do for us. Hand in hand, the SEO work and the Google AdWords campaign management - I cant recommend their services highly enough, not to mention the cost difference from Auckland based companies that provide similar industry services. Thanks to Write Ahead our business is continually growing due to the great online presence

ALAN GILDER - Managing Director


Write Ahead was recommended to me by another SEO specialist, who said that they were the best he had found. I certainly agree with this statement and have found Dave’s search engine optimisation knowledge and expertise throughout our working relationship to be second to none. He is an absolute pleasure to work with, quick to respond to emails and able to simplify (what I find to be) a complex process. I continue to recommend Dave to other business owners who (like me) are impressed by his prompt, efficient service which is measurable and well executed. Thank you Dave for your work and efforts, we have noticed a significant increase in business through our website that has more than covered your fee.

NATALIE WENDELL - Business Owner


 “We are using these guys for our SEO work and Google AdWords. They are great to deal with and have lifted our web traffic. Highly recommended.“wanting to improve their website performance.
