Backline Plus – Toronto, ON

Great Ranking in Google…

“In 2015, Backline Plus approached Roly Platt (Platypus Design) to improve our website’s ranking in Google. As well, we asked Roly to target a few NEW key phrases that were not ranking at all.

In a matter of weeks, we watched our site begin to climb. Now, one year later, we are ranking with an impressive 11 phrases in a “Top 10” position and 7 phrases in the “#1” position! This includes the important new key phrases that were targeted.
As a result of Roly’s very affordable SEO plan, we have seen an increase in “new business” and we are pleased with our ROI. I highly recommend Roly’s services.”

Shaw Bros. Inc. – Barrie, ON

“Shaw Bros. contracted Platypus Design to develop our new website – shawbros.ca and implement and manage our on-site SEO strategies. We were promised a well designed, easy to navigate site that is easily found through a variety of Google search terms. Roly has delivered on all three counts (at a very reasonable cost as well).
A portion of our market includes clients worldwide, which made the task of “ranking well” even more challenging. We are pleased to say that our Google rankings have been excellent – 8 of our targeted keywords phrases in the TOP 10 and other phrases not far behind. This has led to new business and continues to be an important marketing tool for Shaw Bros.”

Midas Event Supply – New Jersey, NY

“Midas Event Supply has worked with Platypus Design on a number of our marketing initiatives over the past 7 years. In addition to the printed material they have designed, Roly and his team also developed our new e-commerce website – eventchairsandtables.com in 2010. Along with providing a great customer experience which will lead to conversions, the site also had to have a strong online presence, meaning it had to be easily found through search engines. This was a tall order, as Midas has a North American-wide client base and is in a highly-competitive market online. Roly’s careful SEO planning and monitoring is achieving consistently good search engine rankings on many of the targeted keywords and phrases we are aiming for.”
“I am very pleased with the quality of work, responsive service and his affordable SEO plan.”

Lambert Painting – Stouffville, ON

“For the past 9 years, Platypus Design (Roly Platt) developed, and has been managing the SEO strategies for all three of my companies’ websites with great success. I was doubtful in the beginning that even a high-ranking site could match, let alone replace the traditional advertising I had always used – directories like The Yellow Pages etc., but it has. I am now spending significantly less money than I was on the various printed directories and new business keeps coming in through the websites.”

“Service is very good. Always helpful, always accessible.”

The Google ranking increase I now receive has been impressive.”
“I would highly recommend Platypus to other small business owners who would like an affordable website and SEO plan. It has been a valuable marketing tool for my business.”

Natsil Consulting Inc. – Kitchener, ON

“As a new company seeking a professional image, we spent a lot of time pursuing a talented design firm to give us the edge we needed. After viewing Roly Platt’s impressive portfolio, we went ahead with a number of design projects. Throughout the process, we always found Roly to be pleasant and professional with the ability to deliver striking work in a timely fashion. On almost a daily basis we are asked who designed our company literature. We think that speaks for itself!”

Student Techs Inc. – Mississauga, ON

“In 2000 our new company, Student Techs Inc. approached Roly Platt of Platypus Design to create a corporate identity that would capture the essence of our service in a very simple but dynamic fashion. We had also asked our existing agency to do the same so that we could compare and choose what worked best for us. After submissions were made, it was clear to our staff that Roly’s work was a “cut above”, combining simplicity, excitement and creativity in a unique design. His work appealed to us both from what the design communicated visually as well as emotionally. During our time working together on this project, Roly carefully listened to what our needs were, communicated throughout the project and delivered on time. It is with great confidence that I recommend Roly as an insightful and talented “translator” of ideas into visual designs.”
