Dorset & The South West | Event Service Hire

Annabel is an absolute star. She has designed and written our whole website whilst also helping with the social media of our new business too. Having no clue where to start with designing a website or indeed starting a new company, Annabel's expertise have been invaluable. Nothing is ever too much trouble and she has an amazing ability to make the world's worst technophobe understand everything. I would not hesitate to recommend Annabel and will most definitely continue to use her for ongoing support with my business.

Sussex, Hampshire | Luxury Toilet Hire

Annabel Mains of Thistle & Bug Consultancy recently updated our website and put it into a new format to go on to a new platform, the work was carried out on time and with minimal input form us, the end result was very professional, with added features and with a seamless transition. When a small glitch cropped up on the new site, not something Annabel had done, she dealt with this very quickly and the site was live again within hour.  We would highly recommend Thistle & Bug’s services.

Annabel is an absolute gem! She has been incredibly helpful over the past couple of months. In those moments I have been overwhelmed she's listened and helped me break down the actions I need to take until it seems so simple I question why I ever worried! For me, it's like having a second person in my team, someone to run ideas past, someone to give me a different perspective and then in addition bring her experience & practicality to the party. She is a brilliant sounding board for Glebe House Designs and has just been invaluable with her ideas, support & personal introductions. She really gives as much as she can and doesn't hold back. I would really recommend working with her.

I asked Thistle & Bug  and Annabel to help me out as it’s safe to say I needed help with my website and social media. She was exceptional in her guidance of it all and really took time in addressing and understanding what needed to be done: rewriting and showing me how to increase my social media footfall and making the website user friendly. I would highly recommend her from start to finish on your business start up, growth and maintenance.

Thistle & Bug has offered me support, expertise and knowledge to be able to organise the many aspects of my business and life into clarified and viable strategies. Annabel took the time to understand, talk through and learn my priorities and understood a brief that I was unaware of. This has resulted in a professional website that was delivered in great time and was the answer to what I needed even if I didn’t realise it myself. Moving forward I am continuing to work with Thistle and Bug to continue to develop the idea of Just Janey Ltd, constantly improving the website, coming up with focused and targeted marketing and a general sense of clarity...
I would confidently recommend Thistle & Bug to my friends and associates and find the packages offered a manageable and accommodating to various budgets.

Thank you Annabel ......
