Dean Marshall Consultancy's role: Web Design and Support
"We approached Dean to help us with a badly designed web site. From the first day Dean was very helpful and patient and it quickly became apparent that his knowledge of Joomla was very extensive. If you’re looking for someone to design your web site, hold your hand as you learn how to develop it and happily transfer their knowledge to you then Dean is the man you’re looking for."
"Dean has trained three members of the Trafford Hall team to be able to manage the content on our website. He is a knowledgeable and patient trainer who is happy to answer questions whenever you need advice. Dean’s advice doesn’t stop when your training session ends he is always there at the end of the telephone to answer questions as they occur on a day to day basis."
Since moving over to Dean Marshall Consultancy our school website has really improved in terms of Search Engine listings and overall impact. We recruit international students and so our website is by far our key marketing tool. We are now looking forward to a Joomla transition which will open up even more marketing opportunities.

'After a few years chasing a 'quick fix' by contracting out the responsibility of designing a 'working website' with SEO to various wonderful-sounding folks, the only thing I seemed to have achieved was a depleted bank balance and elevated marketing spends.
And I also learned alot about the subject - and even more about what I wanted from my website presence. It's just that working through a process of elimination and figuring what doesn't work is not the most uplifting and effective way of running part of a business!
Dean Marshall Consultancy have been excellent at helping me put the site together in a way which is user and search-engine friendly.
It looks great, does the job now, and has been designed in a way which allows easy operation now and simple upgrades in the future.
I quickly achieved the search engine profile I wanted for one of my two sites - and AT LAST I have confidence that with DMC the future of this side of my business is in excellent hands.'

When we found our web site—the Samatha Trust—had been hacked causing searchers for the buddhist meditation classes and courses we offer to be re-directed to "hot redheads in Oldham" we were very keen to resolve the problem as soon as possible. The Dean Marshall Consultancy team's response was professional, speedy and effective.
They identified the cause and effectively eradicated the malicious code which had infested the site within 24 hours of receiving payment. The bespoke reports on their work and security advice provided during the de-hack process were clear and useful. The scans made one week and one month after the initial clean-up were carried out professionally.
I have no hesitation in recommending the Dean Marshal Consultancy team to you.

"Just a quick note to say thanks for your time on the phone this morning. Great to know I can just pick up the phone and get my concerns and questions answered pretty much straight away. All the sites are now up to date with the latest version of Joomla so hopefully everything should now be secure.
I'm really happy with the way both sites are developing. www.samjarmangolf.com was a bit of a chore upgrading from Mambo but I'm really happy with the extra functionality and usability in Joomla. Looking forward to working with you and the team on getting the sites up the search engine rankings over the next few weeks and months."

"Joomla can be a tricky beast but these guys know how to tame it.
My training with Dean Marshall, a set of one-to-one Skype sessions over two days, was nothing less than enlightening... and, quite frankly, a joy. Dean's methods are steady, thorough and laced with good humour, but also allow for necessary meandering when the newly-acquired knowledge naturally gives rise to additional questions.
Did I get what I paid for? No... I got much, much more! Alongside the substantial core training, I received tips, tricks and useful information on developers' utilities to aid with my Joomla site building. This was unreserved attention indeed from one of the original Joomla experts.
The training was tailored to my requirements but also accurately anticipated my needs. I was provided a test Joomla site to play with, not only for the sessions but also for an entire week afterwards. That and access to support... during that period and beyond.
I simply cannot recommend Dean Marshall Consultancy highly enough..."
"The team at Dean Marshall Consultancy are friendly, honest and patient! They are always available to offer support and guidance and they have helped us increase our website ratings dramatically."

Dean Marshall Consultancy's role: In situ de-hack
We retained Dean Marshall and his team to help us recover from a sophisticated hack. They were the third organization we retained to provide assistance, the last one necessary and the only one that offered us with a permanent solution. They worked through the weekend to help us resolve the issue and were able to restore our website without loss of data. Most importantly, they provided clear, frequent communication in understandable terms and laid out a permanent plan to minimize future risk of attack. We highly recommend Dean and his team.

I am delighted with the major website re-design that Dean and his colleagues have provided.
Their whole attitude, professionalism and continuous support from my initial phone call through to completion has been superb.
I benefited substantially from Dean's substantial knowledge and personal approach during our discussions. This helped translate what I had described in non-technical language into a product that I am delighted to use.
Dean's advice and ideas were very sound, well-structured and timely to help create a much better designed and effective website.
Their assistance has significantly boosted my confidence to help me promote and develop my business faster and more profitably.
I strongly recommend everyone who wants a better website to talk with Dean as their no. 1 choice.

"Dean Marshall Consultancy were a tower of strength when I set up Media Helping Media, a site that aims to help independent media in transition and post-conflict areas and offer free, training resources designed to build capacity locally. Although busy and working on his commercial deals, Dean was quick to see the importance of sharing knowledge with those unable to afford to pay the price of expensive Western consultants.
Media Helping Media is non-profit and has no sponsors, and Dean responded to the challenge to work with me on perfecting my site so that it was fully optimised. Not only am I grateful for that input, but thousands of journalists around the world, from Guatemala to Nepal, are grateful, and have benefited from that generosity of spirit, too. Dean showed that it is not all about profit, it is also about social responsibility."
