Testimonials and Reviews


I can’t recommend Chris highly enough.

I started out a couple of years ago with a home-made website that had run its course and served its purpose. I needed something professional and slick. I’d connected with Chris on LinkedIn previously and we’d had good conversation. I checked out websites he’d worked on previously, and they looked good.

I contacted Chris and told him what I wanted. I wasn’t sure that I articulated it well enough, but Chris asked questions and gave suggestions to nail down my vague ideas. When the designs and initial build came back, it was exactly as I’d pictured it. It was as if Chris had taken the image straight out of my head. It was spot on.

I’ve now got a website that I’m proud of and, more importantly, is delivering leads to my inbox.

Chris is your man if you need a professional and slick website that delivers.

I approached Chris to create a new website for my engineering business - I wanted to make sure it looked professional, and Light Bulb Web Design took all of my ideas and information and made it even better than I had imagined.

The service was hassle-free, and everything I asked for became a reality. Chris was quick to respond to queries both before and after the website was completed, and I now have a website which ensures my business looks professional and shows people what we do at the click of a button.

Chris did a remarkable job building my new website for Money-Minded Media.

Before I contacted Chris, I struggled with website design, as it's not my strength. Thankfully, Chris came through and delivered. My favourite part of the work he did is the simple yet professional-looking layout he brought to my website.

If I were to recommend Chris's services to someone else, I'd say they are in the right place for expert help in building a professional website. Three benefits you can expect from this help are:
  • Great communication
  • Assistance with any issues after the website is delivered
  • A tutorial on how to use your new admin dashboard
Again, I'd highly recommend Chris when it comes time for a new website.

As a new business I know I needed a website, but I was not sure where to start or what was involved. Chris was recommended to me, and he did not disappoint! Chris explained everything to me in an initial consultation call and what would be recommended for my website.

I enjoyed working with Chris and Rebecca and they were very quick and efficient. The whole process felt effortless, and I highly recommend Light Bulb Web Design.

I love the website that Chris has created for me, and it looks even better than I expected, and I have already had a number of enquiries through my website, thank you!

Since the launch of our new website our sales have now tripled. Our sales have gone through the roof and this is without the SEO option.

Chris knows his stuff and although I was a little dubious at first, due to my experience with other companies that made our sales worse. I made the right decision and will now look into SEO.

Chris and his team assisted us to update our website! Our old website was very outdated and did not display the most current information on our company to attract an audience and keep them engaged. With Chris and his team's help, we created the new website which now looks engaging, insightful and easy to navigate through.

My team liked how friendly Chris and his team were. They made us feel very comfortable and were always willing to jump on a call/email if we had enquiries no matter how small. One of the main reasons we chose Light Bulb Web Design was because it was a local company, and we always choose them whenever possible as opposed to branching out to a bigger company on the other side of the world. Also, their quote was very comprehensive and fair.

Light Bulb Web Design did not disappoint at all.

Thanks again for the help of everyone involved! :)

As a brand-new business, we had no idea where to start with building a web page.

The whole process was most definitely a team effort. Chris listened to our thoughts about what we wanted our website to look like and gave us the advice needed to make improvements on this to develop it further. Having previously having absolutely no idea about the work that went on behind the scenes, the team of experts that worked on this project have created a website which hits our target audience perfectly, is easy to navigate and is eye catching and modern.

Light Bulb Web Design have such great knowledge and skills in this field. They communicate brilliantly with their customers and stick to deadlines which they promise. Nothing is too much trouble, and they work with you rather than for you to create an ever-evolving product.

Since the website launch, we've had greater customer enquiries & sales, confidence in updating 'blog' posts to share our work, and greater brand identity.

Before working with Chris at Light Bulb Web Design, we used a ‘do it yourself’ website template builder. The results weren’t great and it took up a lot of our time. As our business continued to grow it was clear our online presence wasn’t good enough. Chris has been a breath of fresh air. He took the time to really understand our business and built us a fully bespoke, original website. He completely nailed the brief! We love our website.

Chris offers a very personal service, with nothing being too much trouble. The whole process felt effortless. The service has been fantastic, anyone looking to build a website should be speaking to Light Bulb Web Design. You won’t be disappointed.

We now have a much greater online presence and customer engagement with ongoing support that has website amendments implemented very efficiently, supporting our local business.


I was looking for a new website when I saw a LinkedIn post by Chris. I was struck by his approach to building sites, and the customer centric nature of what he is doing, without following fads. My previous site was an awful mess of a DIY WordPress site and I needed to up my game.

Chris took our design brief and delivered on it, on time and in budget.  The development process was quick, and he totally ‘got’ the ethos of how we work and we wanted that in our site.

Since going live, the support has been great when we’ve needed it, and it’s a doddle to keep updated. So impressed were we that I had an additional site done too for SchoolMark, which required not only the traditional site, but a portal for customers to log onto to engage with us as well. Likewise, this was delivered when promised, and I’m a happy site owner!
Our old site was slow, did not fit our business anymore, and had outgrown itself. So, after a little looking around I found Chris, and checked a few of his designs (I actually know a few of his customers so had a chat with them, all sung his praises highly).

After a chat and a few emails with Chris I decided to go ahead with him to get our new site designed and built. I'm very happy I did and we are very happy with the new site.  It's working very well for us.
Light Bulb Web Design were fantastic. I thoroughly enjoyed working with both Chris and Rebecca. I wanted to work with a local company and these guys understood the brief from the very first call we had together and they were quick and very efficient at getting work across to us.

We are thrilled with the end result and have great pride in directing people to what we think is a pretty mega website!
We approached Chris for a review of our website, as we were never happy with the way our previous site looked, although it did seem to achieve decent results (albeit it is difficult to know for sure).

From the outset, Chris was very honest with us. He said the actual content of the website was good, but it just needed to be more user friendly and visually improved. This was reassuring as this is what we thought, and Chris wasn’t trying to up sell or change something that wasn’t needed. Chris took time to speak with us, understand our company ethos, and wanted to get this across in the website.

Since the update of the website, we believe it looks a lot better and much more professional (and we have had comments from clients too). But, more importantly, it continues to generate enquiries. Most of our new business comes from word-of-mouth referrals from existing clients, but we still require a website that looks professional and gets our message across. We believe our website now provide this.

We decided as a Company that we needed to re-establish some core services and as such our website required a restructure.

Light Bulb Web Design was recommended to us as being a good listener with innovative ideas. Chris proved to be just that. For a business stream (HRM) that was new to him he was quick to understand our business, Clients and gave us a modern edge to our website.

The interaction and service was prompt, efficient and we are very pleased at the end product. The overall service was also very cost effective and personal. We have had very positive comments and returns from the website and I feel it has enhanced our business profile.

I would highly recommend this service.

Chris was recommended by a friend of a friend and I am so pleased he was. Chris is extremely knowledgeable and he has been professional, courteous, responsive, patient, obliging and extremely helpful throughout the whole process of building our website. I would absolutely highly recommend him & the service he provides.
Chris was recommended to me and from our first call I knew he was the right person for me - he had looked at my competitors website, already had ideas and just "got" what I wanted to change! Super speedy work, patient and I actually managed to update my blog following his easy instructions! Thank you Chris - would highly recommend and will not go anywhere else!
Chris at Light Bulb Web Design has just done our website and we couldn't recommend him highly enough! Nothing is too much trouble and the finished site is exactly what we wanted, all at a great price. Thanks Chris and keep up the good work!

We recently had a new website constructed by Light Bulb Web Design after undergoing a company rebrand.

I found Chris a pleasure to deal all the way through the process, very knowledgeable and easy to communicate with. The finished site is outstanding it far exceeded my expectations.

Personally won't be going anywhere other than Light Bulb Web Design going forward.

Chris has been absolutely fantastic to work with. He helped us build/design and maintain our website and is so speedy and efficient when we need help. He is readily available, patient and answers questions in a way anyone of any level of technical knowledge can understand.

I highly recommend Chris and look forward to continue working with him. 5 stars!

Spot on! Chris built us a top-quality new website in a tight turnaround after our previous provider let us down. Since then, the website is performing a million times better. Bounce rates are down, session durations are up, sales are up and he's always there to help when you need. An easy 5 stars here, thank you Chris!

Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Light Bulb Web Design. My web site is not only easy to navigate, it’s professional and looks amazing. My feedback has been so positive I couldn’t be happier. Chris responds to your messages very quickly and is always there to help. This is so important with an on-line business as you need that support there from a professional. With the years of experience Chris has he knows exactly what you want to achieve through discussions and makes the whole process easy and enjoyable. Thank you.
Absolutely smashed my website first time. Could not be happier! One very happy customer. Thank you very much Chris
Thoroughly professional - a pleasure to deal with. And delighted with the end result - Thanks
Quality website design representing excellent value for money with great ongoing back up service. Highly recommended!

Excellent service. Chris is excellent. He responds very quickly to emails, daytime or evening, not working the traditional 9-5. Has good design ideas and works proficiently as well as quickly. I thoroughly recommend Chris and Light Bulb Web Design.

Chris was recommended to me by a friend and I'm delighted that he did. Chris has the technical knowledge that I lack and was able to translate my vague ideas into a very clear and hopefully successful website. He was very patient with me when I was asking for minor, but very important to me, amendments until the site was just how I wanted it.

Chris created the new Fletcher’s Fund website for us. He has done a great job, is supremely talented, patient and professional.

Chris has created a beautiful website for my business in a short space of time. He has a great work ethic and always explained the process in an easy to understand way. I cannot rate him highly enough.

Chris updated and re-designed the website for us (Didsbury Arts Festival) and I can't recommend him highly enough. Chris had a really flexible approach from the start and was open to discussing ideas and adapting the design until it was right. His expertise in websites and also how people engage with websites was invaluable and really helped to shape our website so it’s user friendly but also looks great!

I will certainly be recommending Light Bulb Web Design to friends and colleagues.

As a small business just starting out, the prospect of getting a website up and running was pretty daunting. However from the first phone call, Chris put me at ease with his professionalism and his patience for all my questions. He is flexible and really understood where I was coming from. The end result is a beautiful, professional and user friendly website that has already received great feedback from my clients.

If you are looking to build a new website then please look no further. Chris is amazing and goes above and beyond and nothing is too much trouble. I have had so many comments on my fabulous website and I can't thank Chris enough. He is professional, efficient and very very good at what he does!

Chris sorted the website out for me quickly & without any fuss.  It now looks better & is getting positive comments.  I'd certainly recommend Light Bulb Web Design Ltd to anyone as all my requests were understood & acted upon almost immediately.

Light Bulb Web Design have created an amazing website for us at CONQUER Lake District. It has been a great experience working with Chris who has listened to our ideas and produced something that far exceeded our expectations! The website looks great and communicates what we are about very clearly. We have no doubt that our new website will have a positive impact on our business and can’t thank Chris enough! Well done Light Bulb Web Design, take a massive bow.

I cannot rate Chris highly enough. I met with a million ideas of how I wanted my web page to look. We sat down over a coffee and went through the design brief. Chris immediately knew what it was I wanted. Very shortly after this, Chris sent over the initial concept it was perfect, he listened to what it was I wanted and made a clear, attractive, concise looking page. Quick, professional and a pleasure to work with! I will be recommending him to all my contacts!

Chris has produced an amazing website for our school. The website is so easy to edit and Chris is always around to help and advise. He completed the work quickly and professionally and for a reasonable price. Great service, great website and great work!

I contacted Light Bulb on behalf of Carlisle Cricket Club to have our web site re-designed and hosted. Chris was helpful and professional throughout. He took me through the options and quickly designed a web site that we are more than happy with. His support to help us get to grips with running it has been invaluable and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend his services to anyone looking for professional and cost effective web design and hosting.
I am a trustee for a small UK based charity. We asked Chris from Light Bulb Web Design to design and construct a new website for us to replace our rather ancient existing one. We are delighted with our new website and the work Chris carried out. He grasped the issues our charity deals with and worked with them very sensitively. His responses to our queries have always been very speedy and thorough. I wouldn't remotely consider giving him less than 5 stars!
After having long term issues with a WordPress site and my hosting package. I contacted Chris as my site had http 500 error codes and had been going down frequently. Obviously a business site needs to have a constant presence on Google. We discussed options and agreed a solution. Chris worked tirelessly to recover databases which isn't an easy thing to do. Then transplanted all this into a brand new site. The site is now easy to navigate and aesthetically looks fantastic. My website in the weeks it was down had fell off the search engines which was a concern for any business owner. Due to Chris and his knowledge of SEO the new site is back on the first page of Google within a day of his new site going live. Chris I cannot recommend you highly enough and anyone looking for a site and optimised for your particular field Light Bulb Web Design will fulfil your requirements.
Thoroughly professional and helpful approach to my account. Listened and gave advice to help me get the best possible outcome with my new website. Always at the end of the phone if I have a query. Really enjoy working with Chris Wilcox and have already picked up new business as a result of my newly redesigned website. Would recommend to anyone looking for this type of media representation.
We needed a Website built for a Caravan Park.  This is something that I have never done before and Chris made this process easy. We now have a booking system in place and payments going through the system with ease. Chris, I thank you for your patience and you will certainly be highly recommended.  Thank you for doing such a great job!

Light Bulb went above and beyond to provided me with a stunning website. Also took me from page 8 on Google to page 1 !!

I honestly could not recommend them enough.

Our old website was looking a bit dated and didn’t work on all platforms. We also wanted to promote new aspects of our business. Chris at Light Bulb Web Design was recommended to us and we are so pleased that he was. The service that he has provided has been excellent. He understood straightaway what we wanted and made suggestions as to how we could best achieve what we wanted and link into our existing Facebook page. We are delighted with the final design. Chris has been very professional, knowledgeable and creative he even designed our new logo. Nothing is ever too much trouble and his customer support is excellent. We would not hesitate to recommend Light Bulb Web Design to anyone wanting a very professional comprehensive web design service.

Light Bulb Web Design has been amazing for our business. We cannot thank them enough, the work that has been done has been second to none. Support has also been to an exceptionally high standard. For us we were third time lucky, as we have already tried two previous web designers that didn't seem to grasp what our company required.

We now have a fully functional shop, membership area, dashboard and Directory - truly wonderful. We have retained LBWD each month so they can be on hand to support us in the event of a website query or technical issue.

Thank you very much, it is a pleasure working with you Light Bulb Web Design.

Really really pleased with my new website. Will definitely recommend to anyone. Thank you very much Chris.
I'm delighted with my website and have received lots of great comments especially from the artists. I can't believe after fifty years in entertainment how good my acts sound on the site and this effectively sells my artists to the public before they even get to me. I cannot recommend Chris at Light Bulb Web Design highly enough and find that any requests are attended to immediately.
We at Monster Catfishing are very happy with our new website. We have tried two companies previous and Light Bulb has by far been the best! So helpful, even when contacting him in the early hours! We would highly recommend Light Bulb Web Design. Thanks Chris much appreciated.
Well what can I say, it’s been 2 months since the launch of Eco Clean Solutions and I couldn't be happier with my new website and what it has achieved in the short space of time whilst its been live. It has giving me the platform to propel my business #EcoCleanSolutions forward, gaining more enquires throughout Dumfries and Galloway in turn leading to more contracts being won. I could not have asked for a better service from the very beginning. Simple, effective and a thoroughly professional service. I have recommended Chris @lightbulbwebdesign to many local businesses but I think the quality of his websites speaks for themselves. Thanks for all your hard work. Maggie
We are delighted with our Buteland Stop Shepherds Hut glamping website designed by Light Bulb Web Design.  The backup support is excellent.
Excellent service, prompt response to enquiries and a spectacular looking website that now works on all platforms.  Thanks Chris.

We wanted a website for our new cleaning company, Little Duck Cleaning Services. After viewing Light Bulb Web Design's portfolio we decided this was the web design company for us. From the first meeting Chris was very knowledgable, professional and answered all my questions with confidence.

We were kept up to date with every step of the process. The first designs were exactly what we wanted and we had a great looking, professional, SEO packed website in a relatively short space of time, for an amazing price!

Anyone requiring a new website for their new or established company, should look no further than Light Bulb Web Design!

Following a full company rebrand I was looking for a website provider to design a completely new site which reflected the brand and range of services we now offer. Chris put together a professional look which is simple for customers to navigate but has a bold impact. I was very impressed with the product and service and wouldn't hesitate to recommend him and his business.

Needing a new website for our rosette company I luckily found Light Bulb Web Design and could not have been happier with the result!! Chris has not only designed us a great new site but the support and service he has given has been absolutely fantastic, can't recommend his design and first class customer service enough, thank you!

Light Bulb Web Design made a fabulous job of our website for Cumbria Dance. They were professional, helpful and patient all the way through the process and never once complained when we took so long in our decision process or changed our minds! A fantastic team!

Our website was outdated, unsupported and unsecure. It was far more of a liability than asset to us. We wanted a local web designer that we could talk to face to face, who could guide us through the whole process of updating, upgrading and making sure it was secure for our customers. From the first phone conversation we knew that Chris was the right choice. He’s been fantastic throughout the whole process. He listened to what we wanted to achieve, then talked us through the options, he then migrated as much of our old site as possible and set about creating a fresh, clean and easy to use design. If we’ve had a problem or if something’s not working quite the way we’d expected it to, he’s been on hand to either talk us through it or fix it for us. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Chris and Light Bulb Web Design.

Our old website was looking dated and in need of a makeover.  Chris at Light Bulb Web Design made the process of updating easy and straightforward.  We love the look of the new website Chris created. Most of all the blog section posts straight to Facebook and Twitter which saves us time.

I'd been searching for a Web designer but didn't have positive experiences UNTIL I discovered Chris Wilcox. He's 100% responsive, extremely helpful, creative, dedicated & knowledgeable. He offers insightful suggestions and works hard to accommodate. He wants me to succeed! I'm delighted with my beautiful website & can't recommend Chris enough.

I've always thought of websites as shop windows, the more appealing the window the more likely you would wander into the shop to see what was of interest. My website was needing a facelift. With this in mind, I decided to look at all the local web designers websites. I did not stop in Cumbria and indeed looked at sites all over the Country. One site stood out to me and that was Light Bulb Web Design.

I loved the look of his site and decided that this was the company I wanted to redesign my website. I explained to Chris what I wanted to achieve and explained that I didn't like to make calls to designers and be unable to catch them. I wanted to easily be able to liaison with him by email, phone etc as I had previous experience with a firm that you could never get hold of. Well I must say not only was Chris there every step of the way he has created a responsive website that certainly is inviting the customers in!

I can totally recommend Light Bulb Web Design to anyone as they are competitively priced and give you excellent value for money. The site he has created is aesthetically pleasing, it is responsive for mobile use and computer use It is easy to navigate and our visitors can visit our pages with ease.

To those considering using your services, I can only repeat my previous words that you have showcased and positioned our work on a different plateau. Without your innovation, ability and absolute attention to customised detail, we simply would not be the company we are.....wish you all the success you deserve bud!

Having set up a new business hiring camper vans, I sought the services of a local web site designer in the form of Chris Wilcox. The final result was far beyond my expectations. His passion and commitment to deliver a tailored web site is plain to see. I could not rate this guy high enough. A+++

I cannot thank Light Bulb Web Design enough. The service was amazing and Chris gives great advice. I love my website and it was not expensive with fantastic results. Thank you for making my business more of an success!

My website has been live for 3 months now and what an impact it has made on my company.  Scotia NDT is starting to thrive and I have Chris to thank for all his hard work with my website.  Not really knowing what I wanted in terms of layout and design, Chris had free control to do what he does best and with a few tweaks here and there it was done.  Outstanding quality with a service to match.  Thanks for all your hard work.

We contacted Light Bulb Web Design in Carlisle for a quote to set up our website, all I had to do was give him a rough idea what I wanted. A few days later he came back with a proposal, an hour or two later after a few tweaks the job was sorted. It all seemed so simple and only cost a fraction of what we expected. But it seems to work. Didn't even bother looking elsewhere as we felt there was no need.

Fantastic service from start to finish. Incorporated everything I wanted into our website. All the guidance and support I could ever need, and always a prompt response. I would highly recommend Light Bulb Web Design.

Chris is very customer focused and updated things constantly to get my new site the way I wanted it. Look no further than Light Bulb Web Design. Fantastic job.

From the first email conversation I with Chris, I was impressed by his knowledge and approach, and felt confident that he would be able to provide the level of service I required. Throughout the whole design and build process, Chris provided exceptional service in a timely manner. There were times that I felt I was probably asking the impossible, but nothing was ever too much for Chris. My website with integrated forum has been live for over 2 months now and the after-sales service provided by Chris is as good as it has been from day one. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Chris to friends, and other businesses.

I'm absolutely delighted with my new e-commerce website. Chris was very professional and knew exactly what I wanted. Excellent customer service and great value for money. Chris created a beautiful website with a blog that is connected up to my social media accounts.

Chris is a lovely man patient and kind, I am a perfectionist and like things to be done to a very high standard, and I notice everything, attention to detail is very important to me, so didn't make it easy for him, but he was absolutely marvellous. He has always been there to help me and answered all my questions anytime, I had set ideas and creative designs and thoughts that needed to be sorted out, he brought my design and thoughts to life and visualized my vision exactly how I wanted it. He also put some beautiful designs on the website they were really cool, I really have found a friend and think of him as part of the team at Davison's DPR I use him again and again.

I was struggling with a pay monthly 'build your own' style site, when I went to Chris for advice. What he offered by far exceeded my existing deal. He really listened to what I wanted and needed and went above and beyond all expectations. Highly recommended.

Chris is amazing. He has worked with me every step to building my own website. I'm looking forward to a long and happy business future.

Really pleased with both the service and end product. Chris kept me informed every step of the way and produced a website that not only looks great but accommodates all our needs. Very happy.

Helpful from the very start right through to final product. Looked at what my company needed and did exactly what he said he would.
