Company

Amica Digital is a straight-talking, boutique online marketing agency.

The internet has levelled the business playing field, and allows small and medium businesses to compete with big business like never before.  Unlike big companies whose in-house marketing teams are often constrained by slow moving bureaucracy, businesses who engage Amica Digital, benefit from a team that is able to respond to a rapidly changing online business environment.

This smarter, ‘fleet of foot’ approach delivers rapid results that big business struggles to achieve.

  • Cuffelinks

    Suellen and her team have supported Cuffelinks since near the start of our publishing five years ago. The service is highly reliable and the response to questions has always been prompt. I feel more confident about our newsletter and website knowing Amica is watching our back.

    - Graham Hand, Cuffelinks

  • The Ethical Farmers

    We have recently had Amica Digital redo our website including building our shopping cart. We are extremely happy with the result and found working with them to be very easy and professional. We found that their experience and knowledge is amazing. We liked that they listened to what we wanted and then mixed it with their experience and tailored it into the design. The end result is amazing and it is helping our business grow. We would certainly recommend them to anyone.

    - Dominic & Jim, The Ethical Farmers

  • Nicole McCarthy -Hands on Workshop

    I went to Amica Digital when I found my freelancer designed website really wasn’t up to scratch for a newbie small business. I was referred to them and they helped me get my site ready for a local and international audience by tweaking the layout and providing me the correct security coverage and and legal requirements. They knew what I needed to have on my site. What they don’t provide (as part of their core business), they can recommend, and referred me to someone who could provide correct legal advice.

    Over time they’ve helped me build out content, set up an online shop, improve design and provide advice about how to do things, when I’m lost. I always have someone at the end of an email who can step in to fix a problem or add content when I’m short on time. I couldn’t do this without them, they are my “digital agency” and my “help desk” all in one.

  • Angela Barbagallo

    It has been a pleasure working with Suellen and her very capable team in creating the new look and feel of my personal styling business Style Angel. The process was smooth from start to finish and I am thrilled with the result. Suellen is across what is relevant in the market today and advised me on many areas such as look, design and content. This was the second Style Angel website we created together and I am sure it won’t be the last!

    - Angela Barbagallo, Style Angel

  • Testimonial Sharron-Del Wakely

    Thank-you taking the time to speak to me on the phone, as well as answering my emails so quickly. I was very excited and relieved to see my website back on line. Your quick and effective response to my website ‘crisis’ was wonderful and your practical and easy to understand advice, as always, very much appreciated.

  • julia bickerstaff review

    Suellen saved my business! I’d been working with another web developer and found it so tortuous I almost gave up. Thank the stars Suellen appeared! She assembled a dream team and guided my concept from raw idea to well designed, easy to use resource. Two years later and Suellen is still an indispensable part of my business: she’s freed me up from the technical-anxious-making aspects of running an online business so I can focus on the stuff I’m good at. Hurrah!

    - Julia Bickerstaff, The Business Bakery

  • Robin Borrud

    Communitere’s expertise is in disaster relief, not web development. This became painfully clear as we grew and attempted to broaden our web presence to reach more people with a clear and inspiring message. In didn’t take long to realize that we did not have what it takes to create a site that represented our work properly and inspired people to join us in our mission.

    Luckily, Suellen and the team do have what it takes. They were incredibly effective at helping us to define and organize our needs, then provided practical solutions and the technical know how to bring those to life. At every turn, they have been quick, efficient, gracious, responsive, patient and a true pleasure to work with.

    We look forward to continuing to work with Amica Digital (previously the Kickstart Biz) as we branch out to new countries recovering from disaster and as our existing deployments deliver programs that serve people in need.

  • Cindy Luken

    Suellen is a dream to work with. She makes happen what you don’t know needs doing to make your business successful online! She understands the growth phases of a business – its needs and resources, she enables your brand to adapt and have a WOW factor whilst automating back end and allowing a ‘virgin’ team to be hands on and produce results. We love her SOP’s…Standard Operating Procedures to reduce risk and enable stress-free growth. Thanks so much.

  • Brenda Napier

    “Starting out as a sole trader , I was unsure of how to build my client base especially as marketing is not my strong suit. Suellen encouraged me to have my own website. She was spot on in suggested that directing potential customers to my website would be a soft sell approach I would feel comfortable with. Suellen came up with an easy to navigate layout and concise style which projected a professional image for my business. New clients often comment how much they like my website and it has proven to be an invaluable source of new business.”

    - Brenda Napier, Acumulus Cloud Bookkeeping
