We have been with The Best of St Neots over 3 years now and have to say its great, Phill works hard to make sure exposure for the site is always growing and is there when I need advice or have any questions. I didn't realise how well it worked until he put a call whispering number on our feature, we get over 12 calls each month (have had over 20 on other months) directly from the feature. Most people will use use as opposed to our competition because the site has a great reputation. If you are are unsure, don;t be it really is fantastic value for money. I have even stopped advertising with yell...
I joined the best of St Neots this year and I have seena good increase in new customers. Phil is great to work with and very helpful and I would recomend anyone to use this site for advertising and finding some great local companys. I plan on using The Best of St Neots for the forseable future as it is value for money :)
Reply from The Best of St Neots: Thanks Jennie, I am so glad its working well. My job is so much easier with great customers that engage with us!
I signed my business up with Phill about 18 months ago. It was obvious from the first meeting that Phill knew everything about St Neots that was worth knowing both in respect of the community and local businesses. He's a real advocate of "buying local" and is great at spreading the word through various channels. There are so many different ways that The Best Of can help your business, all you need to do is take advantage of them!. (And it also helps that Phill nags you now and again to keep you focused!)
Reply from The Best of St Neots: Thanks Steph, I means a lot when clients appreciate what we do and how we really want to help local businesses grow..

I've been a member of the Best of St Neots for 5 months now, and I can't speak highly enough about Phill and all the hard work he does for St Neots businesses. One of the main reasons for me wanting to join thebestofstneots was to get my Graphic Design and Photography websites, (www.limegreencreative.co.uk & www.artisticportraits.co.uk) on the first page of Google. I already did lots of SEO work on my websites, and on the websites I design for my clients, making sure they are Google friendly, having the right amount of relevant text, and having all the keywords your potential clients may search for.
I was already on page 2 or 3 on a regular basis for anything regarding photography, graphic design or web design in the St Neots area, but since joining thebestofstneots I'm always on page 1 now, and a big part of that is having the bestof logo on my website with a link to my bestof page, this backlink is a very powerful SEO tool for Google searches, and I highly recommend every bestof business to have this backlink on their website, It really does make a big difference!!
If any bestof business would like any free advice on SEO, you are welcome to give me a call, I'm happy to help, as this was another reason I wanted to join the bestof family, to help and support other great St Neots businesses.
Reply from The Best of St Neots: Thanks Justin is a pleasure working with a business that really understan d what we do..

It is my pleasure to provide a review for Phill Scott at The Best of St Neots. I contacted him last year (early 2012). I run a small business and was intrigued as to what he could possibly do for me. As I work with babies, anything even slightly technical I chose to run away from as its not within my comfort zone! Phill however was very approachable, easy to talk to and it didn't feel like he was selling, only explaining what he does, he never once made me feel 'daft' with the many questions or queries I have had. My business has gone from strength to strength, my google rankings have shot up and the local exposure is great! Phill has be unbelievably helpful in all respects, he is always at the end of the phone, returns your calls and always keeps to his word. If you work with "The Best of St Neots" and what it has to offer your business will get better like mine. So if you like me you are unsure where to go with your business...Don't delay call Phill today!
PS. I have only been to one of his networking events (due to my thriving business) but had a really good evening and was made to feel welcome by all the other members. Thanks again Tina (Sleep Baby Sleep)

When Phill approached us about being on the best of St Neots in 2009 after one of our customers recommended us, we decide to go with it for a year to see how it went! And yes we have just signed up for another year and stopped advertising with the yell.
Phill gives us constant email updates of new promotions plus idea’s and the occasional phone call just to see how things are.
We highly recommend using Phill and the best of St Neots for all your local business advertising and needs. It works!!! - Smart Bathrooms

We have now been on the best of St. Neots for the last year. Originally we took some convincing to be on the site in the first place, but are really pleased Phil changed our mind. He has worked tiresly for us to maximize the potential of thebestof website.
With out Phil's commintment, passion and enthusiasm the site would not work as well as it does and we know from first hand experience that the St. Neots best of is one of the leading 'best of websites'
Thank you Phil, we look forward to our continued association with you.

I have been a member on the best of St Neots pretty much since the start, my buisness was recommended to Phill and he come to tell me about the site and what his plans were for the site. I had previously advertised else where with not much joy, alot of other advertising firms seem only intrested in taking your money, I warmed to Philll straight away, he did not hard sale his site, he did not need to, i actually thought at the time if he does everything he is planning to do the site will be invaluable not just for the people advertising but to the public in and around St Neots. He has done everything and more that he promised to do, I cant shout loud enough about Phill and the best of, it has helped my buisness grow and now im even getting work out of St Neots still through this site, thank you Phill for all your hard work to help to promote my buisness and giving people piece of mind from your site before they even pick up the phone.

I have been on the Best of St.Neots for a year now and I can highly recommend them. Being new to the area and having never advertised before I was reassured by Phill that the best of St.Neots would work wonders, well he wasn't wrong!
I now have a steady stream of new enquiries and local regular customers. If you are considering promoting your business then look no further.
The best of st neots has really done wonders for my driving school business!!!
The fact that everyone can read the testimonials and then make a judgement from what other local people are saying about you is fantastic.
Phill Scott who runs the site is always there to help and advise with anything you need to make your business perform better through the best of site.
I am proud to be part of this and would highly recommend Phill and the site to everyone.
