 Testimonials

I can no other answer make but thanks,
and thanks; and ever thanks.” William Shakespeare

Thanks to our clients, past and present, for the great feedback. It encourages us to keep improving.


Malcolm and the team at Gumshoe were pivotal in our transformation. They took the time to get to know us, and put forward a brand story and a website that has been a real home run for our business. When we’ve wanted to make changes, Malcolm has always offered measured advice. I would recommend this team to any business owner who is ready for transformation. Clayton Achen, Achen Henderson LLP

We are very pleased with how Malcolm and his team articulated our values into our branding document which we can present to clients, referral sources and auxiliary service providers. The feedback we have gotten from everyone has been beyond our expectations.

Malcolm and his team developed a custom web site for us that is unique. We were not looking for more business but rather to create a tool that financial planners could use to educate their most valued clients regarding business transition. Kurt Schurer, Kurt Schurer & Associates

The results were significant. Visits to my website went from a small handful to 11,000 in the first year, and 25,000 after four years. The site appears on the first page of Google for many keywords and it continually generates a great deal of new business. John Fletcher, J.E. Fletcher Professional Corporation

Our oil and gas equipment fabrication company was technically oriented and a little behind the curve on branding, email communication, and website assistance for our customers.

Malcolm’s wider view of our business opportunities and potential, and the execution of branding and website revisions, brought immediate results in the form of inquiries from other areas of the oil and gas business worldwide, which we had not previously encountered. These inquiries turned into firm orders and new associations with long-term customers. Bill Twasiuk, Petro-Tech Heat Technology

I would really like to top the other Gumshoe reviews because I have become such a fan of Malcolm and the team. They helped my business take on a more clear direction, and still continue to help in that regard. After reading the other reviews, I second that. That should say plenty about the consistency of their service. Malcolm, Tricia, and Alex are a part of my team now. Cheers guys! Travis Pengelly, A Burst of Colour Painting

Malcolm and his team knocked it out of the park. We recently updated our website with Gumshoe Branding. At first, I was a little skeptical over their procedure, however Malcolm reminded us to trust in the process and not judge until they were getting close to finishing. It took longer than I had anticipated but at the end of the day, the website was more than what I had imagined it would be, and it more than paid for itself within the 1st year in operation. I have no problem recommending Malcolm and his team at Gumshoe Branding (formerly Big Secret Creative) to anyone looking for a great performing organic website. Adam Girvitz, The Exteriors Group

Malcolm has been instrumental in helping us develop a new website that has had a dramatic impact on our sales both residentially and commercially. His business and marketing experience have proven to be an asset as we are continually searching out new ways to attract new business and make our company and brand more recognizable to the public. We would highly recommend Malcolm’s services to anyone who is looking to be progressive in their marketing and business plan. Dan Hambrook, Canwest Concrete Cutting & Coring
