Video Testimonials

“Working with the Pool Builder Agency has been a phenomenal experience. We highly recommend them to any contractor business that’s looking for an overall improvement on their marketing and branding.“

Tristan Starbird
President

“Working with Brett and the whole staff at Pool Builder Agency has been a great experience. They’ve been professional, fun, pleasant to work with, and very responsive. We’re working toward what we hope to achieve in this down market. I think that without them, the future would be much more bleak.“

William Gates “Gator” Green
President & Owner
Fountain Pools

“Brett has given us enthusiasm in marketing, which is something we’ve always been weak at. We’re great at building pools; Brett is now teaching us how to better market ourselves, and get the consumer to understand what it is we do. They’re a wonderful company; I would recommend them to anybody.”

Richard Moseley
Co-Owner
Champagne Pools
“Working with Brett has been very simple. He’s got everything really well streamlined and prompt. When we do our weekly meetings, it’s all business, “get it done” and “here’s your marching orders for next week.” It’s nice to operate at the level of efficiency that he has. He kind of pushes you a little bit, so it works well.”

Patrick Murphy
Director of Sales

Pools By Murphy

“Working with Brett is great. He’s able to capture ideas I have, and turn those into marketing tools and things that make a difference. Brett’s brought in the talent to help me market and regenerate some of the ambition that I have. It’s given me more fire in my company. It’s great to have a partner, and Brett is that for me when it comes to building my business.”

Website Testimonials

“I want to thank you for taking the time to sell to the management of SSG. We’re a big company and large scale change can be incredibly time consuming. The work you and your team put into our website has been incredibly beneficial to me in multiple ways. First, leads procured through my referrals can comfortably be sent directly to the site to view pictures and information prior to my coming out to their home.

Second and more importantly, for those that find us online for the first time, we look like the best in New England (which we have been for years) but our image certainly didn’t look that way online. THANK YOU! I’m not saying you’re totally responsible, but what you’ve done has definitely helped me double my sales over last year and it’s only July!”

As you know, I was very happy with my old FLASH website. Then I met you Brett, a gift of God, to make me see how much better I could be. You designed a great new website, and eliminated the original “flash” website. I want to thank you both because every time I see and read the new website that you created, I realize you are the greatest. You know what are you doing REALLY WELL. Thank you very much for all your help. You have here more than a friend. Salud!!!

These guys were absolutely phenomenal for us! We had four weeks to go before a big event and we had no website. Cheryl came in and took us to the next level from creating and branding and everything. Everything about you was good. The communication between Cheryl, Jane, and Art was just phenomenal. I just want to say thank you so much! We will be working with Cheryl on Customer Hub, our next project.

Working with the CyberFunnels team has been an awesome experience! Cheryl, Eric, Todd, and Rick are down to earth and helpful throughout the campaign building process. They are also specialist in their respected areas as they custom design and build your system. This team makes sure you have a clear understanding of how and why their system will help your company generate new business. I highly recommend CyberFunnels!

This marketing team is superb! Cheryl’s teaching style is excellent and very easy to follow. I recommend this as the best way to learn Infusionsoft in a very customized way designed for your specific needs. The team is thorough, dependable and really know the software well. I can’t say enough good things about Cheryl’s teaching style and I would highly recommend their services.

Just a first-class team, who actually honors their commitments. They have a high level of ethics and competence — and I don’t need to tell you, how both of these are in short supply today. Really feel an incredible burden has been lifted off my shoulders now that I’ve found these guys.

—Craig Garber

I’m the marketing director at Home Waters Retreats in Spruce Creek, PA. Art and Cheryl were an incredible help in getting us up and running in our Infusionsoft application. Not only are they very knowledgeable in using Infusionsoft, they know marketing and are tech savvy. No matter what questions we had, they were able to help us. Cheryl was even available off hours to help test our campaigns – rare today to get that kind of service. You guys are great!

—Michael Miller

5/5

Art and Cheryl are great team to work with. Within weeks of becoming an Infusionsoft member, they had me up and running and actually using my application. On top of that, with their expertise in WordPress, they provided me with the tools to completely flip my website into a fully functioning and optimized self-hosted WordPress site. What I appreciated is their ability to break down concepts so that I could understand and duplicate them on my own. With the plan that they put together for my rental business, I’ll be able to grow my business in ways that would never have happened without their help and mentoring. Seriously, I can’t recommend them enough!

—Pablo Linzoain

5/5

As a new business owner and entrepreneur, Art and Cheryl have literally saved my business, having taught me everything I needed to know in order to be a success with my online marketing. They are phenomenal educators and consultants with a wealth of experience. Consider me a perpetual client. I highly recommend them.

—Charlene Christiano

“Bravo on the subject matter of this, the latest and greatest installment! I was just complaining to my wife about this very issue. (I even found myself looking for a link on the BBB site, as anyone might do, thinking certainly the BBB would have, at the very least a feedback link) what was I thinking?“In any event, thank you for the rant … I feel better already!”

“Excellent Brett. Thanks so much for passing the tools to your (and our) clients! We’re doing strategy work right now on Luxury Pools print and web, including SEO, geo-targeting, simplified navigation, blogging, etc. NOW we have to educate these guys on how to be their own champions, using the many tools available. Nice that you thought to provide the mechanism for them to do their own stat gathering. We coulda… woulda… shoulda…well…thanks!”

“Thanks for all of the help on such short timing. We sold four tubs, which is four more than we sold last year. Additionally, I’ve spent my entire morning entering David’s pool leads that he got from the home show. This was our best show ever!”

Judi Cherry

“I just wanted you to know that, of all the way-too-long-ass e-zines I get, yours is the only one I read. Really. The ONLY ONE. I am a “high I” on the DISC scale, so I don’t like details and I generally skim long articles if I HAVE to read them. But yours almost always has valuable information that I want to absorb. Sure, I have heard some of it before, in marketing classes and such, but I really get a lot out of it. I hope you are planning a book. This stuff is PRICELESS!“

Susan Morrow

“Brett Abbott first introduced me to the MYM Marketing Program in 2005. Since then I have referred several people to him as I believe that today, MYM has the strongest marketing consulting program that money can buy. Period. If you are spending money on marketing and you are not using the MYM Marketing System, you are wasting your money.“

Jefre Outlaw

“I want you to know how much I enjoy and appreciate working with you. Your decisiveness, clarity, and attention to detail make things so easy. It’s rare to get a project with prepared copy and specs, much less to have those things done as well as you do them. It’s a real pleasure. Thank you.”

“Thanks Brett–your PR work really paid off. K-EYE 42 gave us a good three minutes of airtime around the theme of our winning division victory again after 37 years. Elizabeth did a great job of weaving Russ and my interviews around the Singing. Austintatious singing to Elizabeth got the lead-in and a good five to ten-second airing. And once again, your screen displays and presentation made a great impression on the quality of our organization.”
