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.

3 Simple & Free Tools To Get More Google Business Reviews

3 Simple & Free Tools To Get More Google Business Reviews

Google reviews have never been more important for your business.  Over 90% of consumers say online reviews have made an impact on a buying decision within the past 6 months.  However, studies have shown only 20% of businesses proactively collect Google reviews from their customers or clients.

Why should you collect Google reviews for your business?

Google reviews play a huge role in giving your business credibility and improving your local search engine ranking.  Adding more Google reviews to your profile allows your business to rank higher in Google map search results & mobile search results where the business location is important.

Outside of search ranking, Google reviews provide credibility to your business.  A recent survey showed that 70% of consumers trust Google reviews as much as a referral from a friend or family member.  Therefore, you can consider every Google review you get as a publicly accessible referral.

Why Are Businesses Not Collecting Google Reviews?

Easy, the answer is always lack of time.

Today, we’re going to share three completely different, yet equally awesome, free tools that will help you automate your review collection, get more reviews and get a jump start on your competition.


Google Review Link Generator

If you’ve experimented with requesting Google reviews from clients in the past, you’ve likely ran into the issue of explaining how they can leave you a review.  It’s always confusing and typically goes something like:

“go to Google, search for Widget Company, make sure you select the correct one in Jacksonville, click the name, scroll to the bottom, sign-in to Google, and on and on and on”

How is a customer supposed to remember this?  Furthermore, how is a customer expected to want to do this?  Sounds like a time consuming, complicated task.  Enter in the Arrivala Google Review Link Generator tool.  Arrivala created a tool that allows you to create a simple to copy and paste link that will take the customer directly to your Google review page.  Just paste the link in an email and click send!

Use the tool by visiting:


Google Handout Generator

Tend to deal with your customers in-person?  This is the tool for you!  The Google Handout Generator tool creates a one-page, printable, PDF that provides simple to follow instructions for a customer to write a review of your business.  The PDF can be branded with your companies logo and includes images in the step by step process.

The PDF also acts as a great reminder to the customer.

The process for creating the PDF couldn’t be easier.  Enter a few details of your business and click the Generate button.  No sign-up required.

Arrivala Review Automation System

Ready to take your Google review collection to the next level?  Have a look at Arrivala (there is a free version) for a complete automation suite.

Arrivala has many awesome features from automatic follow-ups, review distribution to business platforms outside of Google, WordPress plugins to integrate with your site and so much more.

Best Practice For Requesting Reviews

  • If you meet with the customer in person, give them a Google Handout PDF
  • If you deal mostly online, either use the Google Review Link Generator or the full Arrivala suite
  • Ask for the review immediately after the conclusion of the sale or transaction.
  • Make sure you follow up at least one time if they do not write you a review within 48 hours
