web design, internet marketing, e-commerce solutions, search engine optimisation - servicing the central coast, newcastle & the hunter valley


Have you been burnt by another web designer? Do you want to make sure your website is being designed by a reputable company? Do you want to make sure your web developers understand how to get you results from your web site?

We can tell you how great we are, but we'd rather our clients told you

When James offered to build a website for The Beach Hotel back in 1999, I was hesitant at first as I didn't know much about computers. However, James had steered us right with our radio advertising when he was at NXFM, so I decided to try out this new medium that many businesses were just starting to use.

Today, we still have Net Perceptions looking after our website, and I know I can trust their knowledge and experience.

We have been continuously impressed with Net Perceptions, and their willingness to go to great lengths to keep our website a valuable part of our advertising. They have always been able to explain things to us in a way that we understand, with an excellent focus on customer service.

I would strongly recommend Net Perceptions to any business who needs help with their internet marketing.

My name is Gina Jeffreys and I am here to tell you I cannot speak highly enough of James and Joanne from Net Perceptions! Wow!! They have done nothing but blow me away from the first moment they walked into our recording studio for our first meeting together. Their professionalism is beyond all expectations.

For someone like me who is a country singer with very few computer skills, they make everything seem so easy! We wanted a website that was eye catching, informative and easy to get around. They delivered, delivered, delivered!!! I realise my website is quite large and some web designers had told us it was too hard! That we shouldn’t have an online shop. Basically lot’s of bad information.

Then we met James and Joanne who not only understood what I was looking for but also backed it up with knowledge. We knew straight away we wanted to work with them because you can tell immediately, they really do know what they are talking about. My mind rests easy knowing that I have the most professional team taking care of our online business and in todays world, that is just too important to leave to chance. I highly recommend James and Joanne from Net Perceptions.

You can look around, get some quotes and ideas from other designers if you want, but quite honestly, you won’t find anyone more professional, passionate and good at what they do! James and Joanne rock!

Net Perceptions have created our web site from scratch, answering all of our basic questions with good humour and guiding us to the best result.

We had some ideas we brought along to the process, and Joanne sorted these out with tact; some could be integrated, but some had to be quietly dropped...... with good reason.

Joanne understood we are busy most of the time, and our slow responses never fazed her. She kept the process moving forward in a calm and helpful manner, and we are extremely happy with the result. We would recommend Net Perceptions as a good team to do business with, with undoubted expertise in web site creation and maintenance.

It was my lucky day when one of my staff members mentioned hearing on the radio about a book called "Your Business Online". I searched around my local shopping centre for it and was lucky enough to find it as I only had the title not the author.

Up until readin the book I was undecided about whether I was going to get a web site let alone open an online shop. After reading the well written, easy to read and informative book I was excited!

My husband told me to get in contact with the guy who had written the book and I was bit dubious as I said he's written a book, his prices are probably high. How wrong was I, the Net Perceptions quote came in at under half two other quotes I had received.

At our first meetging not only did Joanne and James work out the best but most economical way to set up our site but they also gave us invaluable advice on marketing.

From there it was an extreme learning journey for me as I had not had much experience with web development let alone an online store. Joanne assured me the X-Cart was simple to run and she was so right. Anytime we got stuck we either reffered to the Net Perceptions site for help or I would sent many irritating emails to Joanne who always responded within an hour to any of my queries, now that's good service! Some of the times my questions related to procedures that Joanne had not encountered before. She would then write a tutorial within a couple of hours and have it up on the site.

I receive many compliments on how well my site works, how great it looks and how easy it is to navigate. Friends of mine who had a site until recently had so many horror stories of having to change hosts, web developers etc as they could not find anyone to help and I would sit there feeling quite smug that I had found the best people in my first go (I of course did tell them to contact Net Perceptions and sadly they never did, their loss!)

So anyone looking to set up a web site I would HIGHLY reommend Net Perceptions, you'd be crazy to at least not have a chat to them and if you want to see how fantastic my site is then go to www.freez.com.au

Fed up with the inadequate capabilities of our old website, I approached a number of website design companies with a whole range of my own ideas to build and grow our online business. In comparison with the other companies, by far Net Perceptions was the obvious choice, not only for value in money - but in professionalism and friendliness. Not of my ideas were quashed, everything was reasonable and Joanne and James were only too pleased to take my point of view along the way.

Our website needed to be traditionally styled, but easy to use for our clientele. The shop needed to be innovative, able to be altered at any moment, with correct freight price calculations for any amount sold, and member's discounts calculated. Net Perceptions used my ideas, constantly evolving them to the next level. This website was especially difficult to arrange because it represents our 3 regions, but Joanne and James tied all of this together seamlessly including live google maps. They also blended wine club information with the shop - to join members online and have them change their details hassle free. We have received more online business since changing to Net Perceptions.

The new website only havnig been live since early 2008 paid for itself within a month with online orders. Clientele find the site easy to use, and the features of the shopping software enable us to have various functions that were previously unattainable including coupons, wish lists, gift vouchers, etc. You can keep a track of what your customers search for, how many people log onto the site and what are the best sellers - all incredibly valuable our other areas of promotion. Direct marketing to your clientele is an invaluable tool and Net Perceptions comes highly recommended from Petersons Wines.

Scratchleys has been a client of Net Perceptions since 2008 and have been more than impressed with their high level of service and professionalism. We would have no hesitation in recommending them to register domain names, build a web page from scratch or rework an existing one. They are experts in many areas of internet marketing and are always available for your assistance. We hope to continue our successful relationship well into the future"

- Danielle Psarris, Scratchleys Restaurant

Net Perceptions are the dream team of web creation. Their service and concern for the client is second to none, and they certainly know what they are doing. I am absolutely excited and impressed by the website they created for me, and more importantly the way in which they did it... stress free!

I can't recommend them highly enough!
