My on-line social media group has members from one end of New Zealand to the other and has for many years only been communicating via Facebook. We have so long needed a better way for people to connect with us and to pass on information to those who need it. Cathy has come along and seen the need and is currently in the process of creating, at no charge to our groups, an educational and informative website that will benefit us for years to come. Cathy, Net Branding Limited and your whole team, thank you so much for all that you are doing for us, you are amazing. What you have created is beyond my wildest dreams! Your support and your caring approach is beyond words. From the bottom of my heart, thank you!

I could not be more thrilled with the service from Netbranding. I had a very curly Facebook issue that other FB "experts" had shied away from. Bradley dealt with it calmly and efficiently, on one occasion responding to a couple of time sensitive immediately and averting further issues. The team were transparent about timelines and communicated to me when we needed to go beyond the initial estimate. Thanks so much for the wonderful work Netbranding. Highly recommend. Jo x
