Working with Chris was illuminating, rewarding and fun. His incisive questions and marketing know-how not only delivered a great website, but helped me to understand my business better. The combination of his strategic approach, efficiency, outstanding customer service and genuine passion for what he does are a rare combination indeed.
"I have used quite a few Online Marketing consultants int he past and can say without a doubt that Chris Bates is head and shoulders above the rest. Its particularly unusual to find somebody who combines a deep knowledge of this space plus a willingness to engage in proper strategy development."
"I started working with Chris from Octoply a few years ago and have been extremely impressed with the work he has done. Chris is so dedicated to getting to know his clients he even gave up 5 hours on a Sunday to sit in on one of my seminars. His insight into what makes MY clients tick and how to best reach them has been invaluable.
As a sole operator I really do need to surround myself with a professional team and I am very fortunate to have Chris in my corner."
“We first engaged Chris because it was obvious that he had a deep understanding of online marketing and website strategy. We have now used the services of Octoply for two business websites and each time the experience has been surprisingly good! Chris' skills and expertise are outstanding and he has seamlessly project managed a range of quality service providers to assist in the implementation and management of our strategy. I would highly recommend Chris and Octoply for any website and online marketing needs if you are looking for genuine ROI and an expert team.”
