Thank you for this. It’s looking really great. Marty was right when he said you’re a rock star in this space!
Many thanks, Kate
Kate Wright, IBL Builders
Thanks again for your help this morning – thank you for explaining websites to me and for your help in getting mine started so quickly! I knew nothing, and you carefully and efficiently stepped me through the basics and helped me understand what I needed and what my options were. I’m so excited that we are off and running!

Oooh! Thank you, it looks great – love the circles and style (you are a designer!)

OMG! That is fantastic, thank you so much.
Alison Fitzgerald, Ally’s Barber Shop
Thank you so much for all the hard work you put into our fabulous new website. We were amazed at how you captured the essence of our business without having visited in person. It is beautifully written and we have had an excellent response already.
We hope to host you here for dinner so you can sample the delicious flavours you have written about! Let us know when you are going to be in Christchurch.
Warm regards, Deb
Debbie Penei, Newbery Lodge
Steph always met copy and production deadlines, behaved professionally at all times, and worked extremely well within our team. She is bright, bubbly, and approaches everything with a smile.
Sarah Sanderson, Marks & Spencers
As a technical author, Stephanie proved to be an invaluable addition to both the communications department and the company as a whole. Her creativity and flair for writing coupled with her precise attention to detail meant she produced some excellent corporate reports and company literature.
Stephanie also heavily contributed to both internal and external publications, applying her professional, intelligent writing style and innovative interviewing technique. As well as writing press releases and industry articles, Stephanie was also a meticulous proofreader and copywriter, and her creative input was always to be relied upon.
Emma O’Boyle, Carillion URS/ Highways Agency
“After struggling for sometime with finding the most effective wording for my Homepage it was a relief to be able to hand the project over to Steph. Her vast knowledge was reassuring, as was her easy-going nature and patience with my lack of understanding of the operations within a website! She was quick to grasp and interpret the nature of my business and produced pleasing results promptly.”
Delwyn Phillips, Independent Property Finders New Zealand
We all think what you [Steph] have written is amazing…you obviously have not only a gift for writing but getting “inside” the business you are writing for and gaining a great understanding of what makes it tick. Great stuff!
Mark Greening, Baches & Holiday Homes
NZTG has used the writing and editing services of Steph Kendall and found her writing very effective for search engines and she has helped increase traffic to our site… I’d recommend her.

[On writing the text and optimisation strategy for Container Relocations’ new website]
Hi Steph, lets run with it as it looks great.
Mark Pedersen, Container Relocations
Steph reworked my existing resume to make me sound like a bit of a star, which gave me heaps of confidence to apply in the job market again. I have since used my new look resume to help me get a job in the industry I’ve always wanted to work in.
Thank you so much for coming to see us today and for taking so much time with all the research etc you did for us. It was a huge help and we all appreciated it so much. We now have a much clearer understanding of what we need.
Thank you again so much and I hope you have a lovely rest of time here.
With very best wishes
Claire, Elgoods Brewery, UK
Polished Diamonds commissioned Steph from ‘The Contented Website’ to write unique articles and content for our niche authority websites (weddingrings.co, diamondrings.co and engagementrings.co) that back link into our commercial business. We found Steph’s unique writing style and her ability to research keywords and write suitable articles to be valuable in giving the websites credibility. The style of writing is suited to both human reading and also search engine robot crawling and indexing. If you’d like to give your website some search engine optimisation and increase the page rank which attracts more visitors, then do not hesitate to speak to the Steph at The Contented Website we highly recommend her – AAA+”
Dan Joines, Polished Diamonds
Just a note to thank you for all your help with the recent upgrading of our website. Over the past year we have consulted various web designers in an attempt to improve our website. We’ve found it hard to understand what most of them were talking about and have felt that we’ve been swept along on a tide of ‘technical jargon’. Then, thankfully, we were introduced to you!
You met with us and explained everything to us in a way that we could understand and relate to. We are more than happy to confidently recommend you to others and will happily work with you again in the future, as and when the need arises.
Mary Miller and Tina Macdonald, City Centre Motel, Christchurch
Our website optimisation by Steph has lead to a significant improvement in traffic to it. The best thing was being able to talk directly with the person doing the work, it allowed us to clearly see what was happening throughout the process and have lots of direct input into it.
We are now preparing for our next website development with Steph.
Jeff Peters, CentrePoint on Colombo
I first met Steph through a bride/client of mine. Steph helped me with my website as I wanted to find out more about ‘search engines’, how people find me on the internet and how to increase the optimisation of my website.
Steph has been a great help to me. She took the time to explain each step and made sure that I understood how and what she was doing. Steph has been so helpful, I would recommend her to anyone who needs a professional and friendly person to help with internet and search engines.
Callie Sandford, Callie Sandford – Makeup Artist and Hair Stylist
Steph is amazing — she explains SEO in a way that everyone can understand, this leaves you with a total trust in her ability, which has proved well founded as our search results show.
