They rebuilt my website with my personality and image in mind! They are so good the first draft was the final product!! My last website I'd been building for about 3 years, well they built a better one in a week. Lachlan and his team did an amazing job and I'm so happy I went with these guys!
From start to finished product, Lachlan and his team were attentive to who I am as a business owner and how I love to treat my clients. My brand is reflective of that and so is my new Focal website. They're fast to respond and eager to help which is rare these days.
I absolutely recommend team Focal.
The team at Focal has been a huge help to my photography business, always treating me well and not just as "another photographer". I love using the booking system to keep track of my clients, payments and packages all in one place! It keeps everything so organized. The marketplace feature brings in new clients that I never would have had. I've been on other photography directories, but none compare even remotely to the value I've gotten from Focal. Truly grateful to be part of this initiative!
I can't even begin to describe how amazing Focal has been and the impact they have had on my business! Their customer service is beyond amazing. They really care about your success in the industry as a photographer, but also care equally about the clients who are booking to ensure they have the best experience, start to finish... it's such a win win when you feel like you have a team behind you that aligns with your values!Their marketplace has been incredible for bringing in bookings, and their booking system has really improved how I go about scheduling clients. Focal changed the way I go about my business for all of the best reasons! Cannot recommend them enough! Lachlan and the whole team are just wonderful, and truly care in your success.
