- Fast implementation
- Open Source to control software costs
- Popular CMS system so that it would be easy to find programmers
- Linux / Unix based system so we could run them off of cloud hosting environments - and not be tied to any single provider.
Drupal has been:
Easy for end users / people that do day-to-day maintenance.
Quick learning curve for programmers
Powerful CMS stuck with us and kept their fixed price, even when the time requirements to complete the job ended up being over 4 times more than originally estimated -- there was tons and tons of detail work that required a tremendous amount of time".

"PowerfulCMS has been tremendously helpful, efficient and communicative as development partner for my social learning platform, SNAP. The team has gone out of its way to keep the project on track and the fresh ideas flowing. I am very grateful for their friendly service and expertise.

"Very complex site but very reasonable price, very accommodating staff even though we had constant changes and presented with new involved ideas which were always received with interest and positivity".
- Karen Glahn, Operations Manager, apls.org
"The Powerful CMS team have provided an outstanding service to us, helping APLS create a new website, new customer database and linked administrative processes with a lot of business automation which will save our company a lot of time and money in the long run. Their flexibility, understanding and conceptual ability to realise our business needs has been outstanding, and developers have been available more or less 24/7 in the week of our launch as we worked through urgent site updates. Both our clients and our staff are delighted with the final product, which is a great improvement both in quality and efficiency from what has gone before. This has been a major project for APLS, and Powerful CMS have implemented our needs exceptionally well.

"In the first two months that my e-commerce site designed with POWERFULCMS has been live, my daily traffic is easily double the level it was with my previous site, while the number of orders is already equal to that from the entire previous year. I am yet to implement many of the strategies we've discussed, and am extremely confident that results will rise exponentially from here once all strategies are bedded down.
A Drupal e-commerce site + strategies devised by POWERFULCMS = a solid revenue generating machine."
Andrew Crellin, Managing Director of Sterling & Currency
They advertised pixel perfect Drupal installation from our initial designs, and they delivered! Most responsive drupal shop I've encountered -- listened, took the time to understand the project, and delivered. Created expectations on the stages of development, kept us informed, and employed the perfect of experts for our job. All this, and the price was right, too. I couldn't be more pleased, and will definitely use them again.
Christian Housh, Director at Explo.org
Numerous developers saw our vision for a collaboration community as lofty and unattainable, but once we talked with Powerful CMS, we knew we had a partner. From day one, they took an analytical approach to building our site and making the most efficient investment. Powerful CMS quickly understood our need to create a comprehensive, cost-effective solution that could manage a diverse body of users. The Team at Powerful CMS has an unparalleled, broad knowledge of the latest Drupal solutions, and they were not afraid to put them to work. Powerful CMS brought together state of the art technology with the simplicity we demanded in what can only be described as a holistic approach.
Incipi was driven by a vision, but Powerful CMS played a tremendous role in the actual realization of our goals. They listened to our ideas and developed a comprehensive solution which included everything from a new logo to the latest in Drupal technology. Powerful CMS also helped us define our monetization strategy and connected us with a key partner. All of these contributions formed the groundwork for a successful online venture.
Powerful CMS created an incredible package for Incipi, and despite an unexpectedly complex development process, they strictly adhered to their initial proposal and their quote. They devoted their time and resources to make sure that our goals and needs were met, and their partnership is a continual inspiration.
Material return to RedBubble
Joe's work with RedBubble optimizing the site for several key search terms has generated a material return to RedBubble and has demonstrated the power with SEO optimization.
Peter Styles, Managing Director at RedBubble
"This time last year we were capturing around 5 leads a day through our site. Since our site revamp with PowerfulCMS, we are now capturing 50-75 leads a day, and it has only been a little over a month. This month, January, we will double our sales (offline and online combined) from the previous January (typically one of our slowest months of the year). We will also double our online sales from the previous January. I'm excited to see what the rest of the year holds."
In addition to constantly thinking of new ways to improve the look, feel, flow and functionality of my site, PowerfulCMS is focused on increasing sales for my business. That's what I consider them a business partner, not simply a vendor selling a service.
Ryan Jordan, BuyforCharity.com

Not only does he know his stuff inside out, he has a knack of aligning technology to the right fit in your business to achieve your objectives and goals. I recommend Joe firstly for his integrity and deep commitment to your business and objectives, and secondly for his unique insight into how technology (especially web 2.0 and internet based service models) can be leveraged to help take your business to the next level. Excellent value all round.

Joe was hired for his Sales Force (CRM) expertise and implemented a solution at MailGuard that remains a core sales management and reporting tool. Joe is personable, well presented an and all round good bloke and I highly recommend him.
Garry Hoover, CEO/CFO of MailGuard Pty Ltd, January 22, 2009
The project was a somewhat complicated site with many customized aspects. SEO was able to deliver as promised in the budget that they promised. They were always responsive to bug fixes and continue to service any bugs that we find even after the project has been completed. They are very accomdating, I would highly recommend them and am very confident in their abilities.

"For a minimal outlay, POWERFULCMS helped me get my website onto the first page of Google for the keywords that were important to my business. They also helped setup a graphical dashboard that gives me all the information I need to really understand how the site is performing and who is visiting it. Silversix.com.au now has more visits each month than the total number of visitors in the two years since we went live!"
Dave O'Reardon - Managing Director of Silver Six
Kathy and her team did a great job! The project was finished as expected, within the time frame promised. I definately plan on working with her again!

SEO Joe was recommended to TXM to carry out search engine optimisation on our site. Joe achieved top rankings for us on all keywords that we had focused on. (go to google.com.au and type in the keywords "lean consultants" and you will find our site at the top of the list www.txm.com.au!) Joe's charges are very competitive, but he was also prepared to go the extra mile and give us advice on further improving our page rankings and improving our website for sales impact generally. We would certainly recommend Joe and use him again if we required further assistance
Tim McLean - Owner
"I contacted PowerfulCMS (then SeoEcom) in October of 2007 because I was looking for an experienced internet marketer. What I found was an experienced internet marketing company with employees filled with zeal! All staff members eagerly & promptly respond to all questions and go above & beyond to ensure my satisfaction.
I have worked with PowerfulCMS for over 6 months. I contacted them with questions once, twice, and even ten times a day. Not a day goes by when I do not receive a response within a 24 hour period; usually sooner. I myself am very eager to read their well thought out & detailed answers. They explain what they are doing, why they are doing, and how I could even do what they are doing!
So far I have seen #1 placement for keywords most of my keywords in Yahoo; 159 keywords. Since our website has over 1200 SKU’s it took a while to make the necessary modifications that Google needed. But after a long 6 months (with PowerfulCMS putting in extra time) we are starting to see Google results!
We look forward to working with PowerfulCMS for the next 2 months and will continue using them for WholesaleKeychain.com and future projects."
