I met Charl Hoffman as a contractor to one of my clients. I was initially impressed with his patience given my limited knowledge of SEO. As time and our business relationship progressed, he has shown to have gone over and above the expectation of a service provider. His passion for quality drives him to continuously pursue and offer excellence both online and in business. This is done by entrenching himself in his clients business, personally engaging with the team and sharing his extensive knowledge without reserve.

Charl from Big Web Media was doing the SEO work on our site but also helped with the designing of our website. The effort, time and research he put into the website and advise he gave us was amazing, simple, but yet so logical! I wish more people can explain SEO and Websites like he does, it actually makes sense and the results well... speak for themselves. He stayed in contact throughout the process and asked us for opinions and rang us at every stage to see if we liked what work he had done. Our website is how we envisioned it to look. Thank you
