What customers are saying

Feet First Podiatry
Feet First Podiatry is a family owned and operated foot health service. We’ve grown steadily and we’re optimistic about continued steady growth in services. We owe a considerable debt of gratitude to the Achieve More Online (AMO) team for their easy to understand, honest, enthusiastic presentations and assistance over the last 3 years. We got on line! It took some convincing and gentle persuasion but the AMO team were very supportive.

Melville Naturopathy
I needed to increase the traffic to my website and conversion to clients. I wanted to know how to measure my traffic as well as create useful, well-presented communication media (email newsletters, SM updates, etc) for my audience. And I really just wanted to learn from a RELIABLE source. There are an incredible amount of blogs, eBooks, courses and ‘gurus’ online that will tell you they have the answer for increasing traffic and conversions, but I just had a niggling feeling they weren’t as reliable and reputable as they should be. When I attended the program workshops I immediately felt reassured that I was listening to real people who are local experts in their chosen fields.

Wray Integrative Health Care
The Melville Digital Enterprise Program workshops that I attended were invaluable for helping to grow my business. I have a much more focused business model, a clearer direction on what I do and how I do it, but more importantly in how I promote myself.

Ashley Peverett Design
The sessions provided by Melville Digital Enterprise Program would have to rate with the best I have experienced.

The program ran over several weeks and was designed to cover most aspects of web design and e-commerce.

It is obvious that all presenters are masters of their trade and the topics and information provided related well to all the participants. Each presenter provided clear and concise visual aids as well as back up printed reference material. A wide variety of businesses were represented by the participants and each presenter took time to answer individual questions to suit the differing requirements.

I would certainly recommend the services to any business needing help and advice.
