What our customers say


“I have been working with Maroon Balloon for over 2 years now as a web developer and also SEO. Tim is brilliant! He has many talents and can even sort basic graphics/images. He also works tirelessly and without supervision, always able to think ahead. If you are a small or even medium sized business and want a website that produces results fast, I can recommend no-one better. And he won’t cost you an arm and a leg.”
