Bold City Design is rated 5 out of 5.0 stars based on 11 review(s).


These guys are full of energy and great ideas.  They are local to the area and have a great reputation but also young enough to bring new technology and fresh ideas.  We had previously been working with another company on website marketing but the relationship had grown stale.  The same thing again and again and the results simply were not there.  Bold City has provided great direction and a new plan that we’re excited to see through.  I would certainly recommend them to others.

We hired Bold City to handle a marketing campaign for a newly released product we were rolling out.  We searched high and low before making a decision but the reviews & portfolio of Bold City coupled with cost considerations made this decision a no-brainer.  Bold City has been terrific crafting both an organic marketing campaign and PPC campaign to help drive our product sales.  While still in the early stages, we’re already seeing results and are looking forward to 2019!

Cabe and crew have been nothing but professional and highly organized throughout our entire website design project with them.  They had excellent recommendations in terms of content and flow of our website.  We would definitely recommend them to others.

We LOVE Bold City.  If you’ve been searching for a web design company and afraid you’ll choose the wrong one, stop worrying!  You’ve found them.  Just don’t get too busy and forget about us :).

We’re a Jacksonville based technology company that needed to outsource a WordPress project.  A previous employee we had moved on from the company and we had nobody that understood our internal WordPress system.  Bold City really impressed me by how quickly they were able to pickup where our employee had left off.  They had several recommendations that improved our processes and made the system run better.  They were fair with pricing and will continue to be our go to company for any and all WordPress related questions or work.  Great job guys!

I’ve been working with Cabe on and off for nearly a decade.  We met on a mutual project and I’ve continued to keep him close due to his understanding of WordPress and ability to handle pretty much anything I throw at him custom development-wise.  Me being based in Canada, we’ve never actually met face to face but his communication skills are hard to find in a developer.  I don’t believe he’s ever missed a deadline and he’s always been willing to work with me to solve complex problems.  I can’t say enough about his ability to organize complex issues down to simple processes.  I’m sure Bold City follows his attention to detail and fulfillment of their promises.  I would recommend them to anybody.

The best of the best.  You’ve earned a client for life.  For anybody else looking, these guys know their stuff. Fast, affordable and understand that times money. 

- James McConnell


Can I give them 6 stars?!? These guys rock.  Local St. Augustine company that is always available when you need them.  If you’re looking for a great web design company you’ve just found it!

- Lucy Keller


We’re big fans of Bold City and have been since we started our website back in 2014.  Always very easy to get a hold of and give honest answers to our questions.  Fair with pricing and very reliable.  What else could you ask for?

- Mary Acumen


We had been with our previous web design company for nearly 5 years.  They were good but we didn’t feel like what they were doing was working.  We decided to make the switch to Bold City and the change of pace has been better than expected.  Great communication and bringing fresh ideas to our business and marketing.  If you’re looking to make change or starting a new business I would highly recommend Bold City.

- Jane Thomas


Trust me, your go to guys when it comes to website design.  As a general contractor, I wouldn’t call myself tech savvy.  These guys were efficient at explaining the process and delivered on every promise they made.  They know what their talking about and do great work.  Would recommend them to anybody.

Offer Incentive For Online Reviews – How To Do It The Legal Way

Offer Incentive For Online Reviews – How To Do It The Legal Way

November 22, 2018

General News

The importance of online reviews for your business cannot be understated.  Whether you are a retailer selling clothing, a custom home builder, a hair stylist or a local IT provider, customers are searching for your business and reviews associated with it.

But how do you get reviews?

Unfortunately, you are more likely to get reviews of negative experiences than positive experiences.  This makes it difficult to present a positive business reputation online.  To get positive reviews many businesses have tried to incentivize customers using discounts or free offerings in exchange for leaving a review.  This can be illegal and you can even be fined by the FTC for offering direct incentives.

So what do you do?  Arrivala Review Collection & Reputation Management has created a system that not only incentivizes review writers but does it in a legal and legitimate manner.  How does it do this?  Charity donations in exchange for online reviews.  Why is this allowed?

  • The review writer does not receive any direct compensation, discount or other payment.
  • The charitable donation made by the business is given for both positive and negative reviews and is thus unbiased and a correct reflection of the business to consumers.

Everybody wants to give to charity but many don’t either due to not having sufficient funds or the difficulty of making the donation.  Incentivizing your past clients & customers with charitable donations in exchange for their review solves both of those issues. 

Okay, okay, you might be saying, how much work is it for me, the business owner, to donate for every review I receive.  We get it, another thing on your plate.  However, Arrivala has that covered by automating the entire process.  You simply select your charity and the amount you’re willing to donate per review you receive (0.50 cents or more) and Arrivala handles the rest.  Arrivala sends out review requests to your customers as you add them to the system.  When a review is written, it automatically subtracts the per review donation amount from your charity balance.

You simply get a clean report every month showing how much was donated on your behalf and what reviews that money came from.

Getting business reviews is often a daunting task to business owners.  They don’t have the time to follow up with customers and they live with the constant worry of a couple negative reviews ruining their business.
