Client Testimonials

"Thanks to BBC World Service, Sky News, The Times and others our last expedition went out to an estimated 160 million people globally, and I suspect Heart of Arabia will have an even greater outreach. For this project we needed someone who could offer a quality, truly bespoke service, and who was open to capturing and developing ever evolving ideas from multiple sources. Working with Hayley at Capercaillie has been a seamless and very positive experience".
“Thorough, comprehensive and with great attention to detail! I asked Hayley to do some work on a website I'd created to make it work better for me and the audience I was after. Within days of Hayley working on the site I could see a difference in the search engine results. She's great at explaining in lay language what I need to know to improve the public facing side of my business. Friendly, approachable with a real 'can-do' attitude, Hayley makes generating an online presence feel easy, accessible and much, much less complicated!”

She creates wonderful websites that 'hang together' very well due to her knowledge and patience.
