I had a particular style of website I had in mind for my business. The Hope Factory shared the same vision and were able to bring to life exactly what I wanted.

Helpful, friendly, technically expert, strategic, efficient, timely and hands on – I look forward to working with them again.

We had a great experience with The Hope Factory. Raksha and her team helped us seamlessly build and integrate our online shop onto our website.

-Damien Stone, Water3
After using a couple IT company’s in which we where very dissatisfied with, we decided to give it another go and hopefully someone could help us. We found The Hope Factory through google. We where immediately impressed by there website so we contacted them and spoke to Matt. I briefly explained to Matt what we we wanted our store to do, and in no time Matt came back with a proposal of all the details that they would provide in helping us fix our store. Matt really made us feel confident about the process, and they certainly lived up to it. Matt and Bhumika are very professional in the way they work they made it very easy for us to understand the shopify system, we enjoyed the conference calls and the training sessions. Thank you very much Matt and Bhumika, Maryanne and I are very happy that we chose The Hope Factory. Cheers Steve & Maryanne Mallia
-Steve & Maryanne Mallia, Rug Love
The Hope Factory were fantastic to work with. Matt was great at helping us to map out our project with Shopify and gave us some really useful ideas about how to structure and organise the site to make sure it was achieving our goals. We worked with Bhumika for the development phase who was incredibly patient and helpful. Her experience and skills made the build and implementation a breeze, and she was always available to give guidance or answer our 1 million questions. Somehow we managed to go from start to finish without any issues or injuries. I’d recommend T Hope Factory to any small-medium business looking to start or improve their eCommerce. Thanks Matt and Bhumika!

The Hope Factory helped make my dream a reality and I look forward to having them on my side as the business grows.
-Shungu Patsika, Mission Gateway
Raks is great. Always available to help me out no matter how stupid the question. If she wasn’t available she would always make a time to get back to me. Was a lot less stressed knowing I could count on her assistance throughout the transition to Shopify and even going forward. Nice to have that support. Just wish some things on the actual shopify system were different.
-Olga Lukich, Babyography
Really great and responsive team, they were incredibly helpful and taught me a lot throughout the process. Highly recommend.

Working with The Hope Factory to develop our luxury tea site has been a fantastic learning experience. Bhumika and Matt walked us through each step along the way. They provided great training and were always available to answer any questions or concerns. The ability to turn around our website development under extreme time constraints was outstanding.
–Shane & Leah, Tea Forte Australia & New Zealand
I found the Hope Factory to have a very professional approach, with timely responses and an in-depth knowledge of Shopify. We were just 7 days late going live and everything worked when we did. The only thing that could be changed (in my opinion) is that customers should have the option to pay an hourly rate for work extra work or modifications rather then having to purchase a minimum of 1 days block of time.

Great work, would certainly recommend.

I have a Shopify store that sells digital machine embroidery designs to international customers. I contacted the Hope Factory to improve the quality, performance and appearance of our web site. Matt Betts was my initial contact point – He was very helpful and professional in the advice he gave me. It was very enjoyable experience and we clicked straight away as we both understood each other. Once Matt worked out what I required he allocated the development work to Raksha. Raksha was excellent to deal with. She performed the changes I required in a timely and professional manner. She is very friendly person and I really enjoyed working with her. I was very happy with end product. I would definitely go back to the Hope Factory for more changes if required. I highly recommend this company.

When I sent an email to The Hope Factory for details regarding their services, Matt was very quick to answer and helpful as well.

-Nathan Kendrix, iKamper
I was left high and dry by another agency and wanted to retheme my site for my Melbourne vape store (www.wickandwireco.com.au) in a quick fashion.

At completion, we were given training and documentation to cover new apps used and how to manage the site.
-Stuart Singleton, Wick And Wire Co.

They were transparent and explained things clearly. Matt and Raksha were the people I worked with and they were great.

-Angela Zegir, Bespoke Botanics
I have been struggling with my shop design since inception last year. I have used some experts at Upwork but all my visitors were leaving after looking at the home page. Just recently I was on a US TV show about my life and work which has brought more people to my aquaburnsgalleria.com site. I knew it was time to act and hire an Australian Company that I could talk to about the problems and who would understand the needs of my customers. Raksha at The Hope Factory and her team have done an amazing job. Now when customers visit it looks beautiful and easy to use. The new Theme Raksha suggested is so mobile responsive it looks like an app on my iPhone. Now my business is ready to fly thanks to Raksha and The Hope Factory.
-Stephanie Burns, Aqua Burns Galleria
The Hope Factory have been very professional and accommodating to everything we needed to set up our Shopify Stores right from the start.

For a chocolate company aiming to attract clients a website that is well-designed, functional, eye-catching, highly visible and easily navigable is not just extremely desirable – it is essential to the success of the business. The Hope Factory has provided us with a site that incorporates all of these features and more. Raksha from The Hope Factory is a great pleasure to work with – always available and willing to offer advice, to put forward constructive suggestions and to make changes as and when necessary. The choice of The Hope Factory to design, develop and manage our website has been one of the most fortuitous decisions that the company has made.
Right from the get-go we’ve had a fantastic experience with The Hope Factory. At the beginning they provided extensive information and gave us all the info we needed to outline what they’d be doing for us, how they worked, their expectations from us as a client and vice versa. Everything was so professional and nothing was left in the dark. From there during the design period, the central dashboard/communications system was fantastic. It provided visibility on where our team members where at, what they needed from us etc. It was great working back and forth on there as everyone was always across what was happening. We had a very tight turnaround deadline when we decided to launch and the support we got was fantastic and met with positivity and a great attitude. Even when we had issues with PayPal from our end, The Hope Factory troubleshooted and worked their very best in rectifying all the issues and getting our website working 100%. We couldn’t recommend them any higher – and definitely will be using their services ongoing and on any future projects. Thanks for a 5-star service!
It was great working with The Hope Factory on our site. We chose them to work with because they were convenient to communicate with, and also because of their ethos and quality of work. They did a fantastic job on the website, and we were very happy with what we ended up with. The Hope Factory worked hard to meet our expectations and what we asked for, and were great at communicating with us about these. Definitely recommended!
-Boomerang Outdoor Equipment
A quick word on The Hope Factory. I have worked with members of this team for a couple of years and have always found them very professional and easy to deal with. I recently updated my Australian and New Zealand websites and it was great to deal with a team who knew a little bit about my business. Most important when things go a little wrong as they usually do, team members were available to help asap and that’s what you need.
-Brett, Progenex ANZ
To the entire team Hope Factory team I want to say THANK YOU for my new website. I’m really pleased with the overall look it really matches the design I was after.

-Lu, Lulu Fashion
I highly recommend The Hope Factory – what an awesome team. I have struggled in the past to find a company who understands internet marketing and back-end applications for websites. The Hope Factory development team understands a complicated brief, can quickly solve problems and more importantly create a seamless shopping experience for the customer, thus increasing conversion rates. Finally, I have now found my ‘go to’ team. Thank you The Hope Factory for helping me in my endeavour to be my own boss and entrepreneur.
-Cat Hall, Lily and Linus Books
Working with The Hope Factory was a breath of fresh air – deadlines for development were given and kept, our vision was understood and interpreted to the high standards set, and the competence of Andrew and his team across multiple platforms means we were confident work would be completed quickly. As it was. Their follow up and dedication to ensuring every minute detail was working correctly has been second to none. Finally, the level of communication throughout the entire process was gold standard.
-Sarina Lewis, Victorine
The Hope Factory are AMAZING. Professional, organised, responsive, calm, cost effective, friendly, accountable and they help keep you moving to turn your dreams into reality. Just as their tag line states – turn hope into reality. Raksha was so easy to work with, she understood my brief and treated it as if it was her own Shopify store. Communication was consistent and open and her expertise blew me away. Matt and Raksha are honest, reliable, creative and exceeded all of my expectations ahead of schedule. Their customer service is outstanding. The Hope Factory ‘gets it’. They take ownership and get the job done. No question was too much. It is obvious they are a super passionate team of fun professionals who are keen to ensure their clients achieve their end goal. I look forward to my continued engagement with them along my journey – I know I’ll need them as I continue to grow my business. I HIGHLY recommend them to everyone whether you are starting out or wanting to upgrade your Shopify template. Pick up the phone and let them help you sort out your Shopify experience, it’s well worth it, they’re experts in every sense of the word. This team ‘rocks’ – THANK YOU x
The team at The Hope Factory are second to none! I engaged The Hope Factory to build my online store as a first time start-up business owner and my expectations were completely exceeded. They were very accommodating and patient with my lack of knowledge in eCommerce and online stores, and they spent time taking me through the various stages and training me along the way. I could not recommend The Hope Factory more highly and will definitely be engaging them again with my next business venture!
-Marina Thomas, Geoffrey’s Honey
Working with Sarah and Raksha from The Hope Factory has been a great experience. They were extremely professional, friendly and responsive to my questions and requests. This was my first time creating a website. Sarah and Raksha were very supportive to me since I lacked a lot of knowledge and tech know how.
Fantastic web design and building with great follow up support and advice. Any issues were seen to and fixed quickly and efficiently. Thanks Sarah and The Hope Factory!
-Brooke and Shannon, Love By Five
Working with The Hope Factory to build our website was a fantastic experience. We were very specific with how we wanted our site to look and perform; Sarah and her team were beyond helpful and provided additional suggestions and tweaks throughout the entire process. Sarah was amazing to work with, providing guidance and support across all areas of the website and our e-commerce launch. We also worked with THF for additional business marketing coaching which was very helpful in preparing us to launch our website/brand/product. Can’t recommend highly enough. Thanks again!!!!
-Where I’d Rather Be
Sarah & the team were incredibly professional, easy to work with and delivered everything i was looking for on time and above my expectations. As a complete tech novice Sarah made the whole process really easy for me, she explained everything well and the training she gave me before handover made the prospect of doing things myself much less daunting. I have no hesitations in recommending The Hope Factory to anyone, especially if you are looking for a cost effective website that doesn’t look or feel like you’ve skimped on anything.
Sarah took my job under her wing and handled it with full professionalism. She answered all my queries, executed them immediately and made my life as ‘tech terrified’ a breeze.
I have worked with Sarah and her team on two occasions and have now switched all my Shopify and website development requirements for my business to her company. Patient beyond belief, extremely helpful, knowledgable and responsive. She gets it and gets it done quickly and efficiently – Hallelujah!
Sarah has been absolutely great to work with. She’s incredibly patient and efficient. I have a very hard time articulating what I want in a website and Sarah was patient and helpful throughout the whole process. I trust her completely when it comes to working on my site and I still hire her for all work that needs to be done on it. Her prices are incredibly reasonable and she’s honest with a great work ethic, which is so hard to find nowadays. I will continue to hire The Hope Factory with all of my future website work. She really took the time needed to get everything done exactly how I wanted it and to make sure I understood how the whole system worked once it was up and running. Thankful for such a good experience.
-The Vintage Coop
I liked THF’s level of communication. The initial forms they sent provided a clear framework to be able to write all of the information that was required. They came back with a first draft of my website that was incredibly close to the final result, meaning they really listened to my initial brief and included everything that I requested. There were very minor changes to be made to polish it up. I find the aftersales service to be very supportive. Highly recommended.
Sarah was very helpful and provided great training as well as answering all my questions and connecting my old and new sites. She was able to explain things well and understand where I was coming from and sought to provide our business with the best possible solutions.
-Jean’s Home and Family Store
As a graphic designer selling my own artworks I needed a developer that I could work with that could bring my designs to life on the internet. So we worked together – I designed the pages, supplied the photography and the fonts and the girls at THF translated it all into a simple, clean, easy to navigate website. It works beautifully and I am already receiving orders for my prints. I would recommend THF to anyone looking for a good efficient website solution for their businesses.

Sarah delivered exactly to the brief and did a fantastic job within the agree timeframe. Sarah has always responded to emails quickly and has provided an excellent service.
-Little Box of Home
I have nothing but praise. The service is amazing, cost affective and always prompt. In 13 years of being in business, Sarah has been, by far the best person I have worked with for all my website needs. It’s so refreshing to work with another company which deliver results. I cannot recommend her enough and there is no need to look any further than her. Thank you to Sarah and the team!

Sarah was great to work with and did a good job building our new website.
-Molly’s Cradle Wines
After such a great experience working with Sarah and her company when they built my website from scratch, I decided to ask her to work on my other website which had already been started. Sarah turned the project around quickly and seamlessly and the result has exceeded all my expectations, I am thrilled with it! In a nutshell, The Hope Factory is e-commerce expertise and customer support at its very best.
After a long and rocky start trying to launch my website on two previous platforms, I decided to move it to Shopify and, based on her great reviews, I approached Sarah from The Hope Factory to handle it. I’ve been really impressed with Sarah’s service, support and in depth knowledge and expertise and I am absolutely delighted with the result and speed of completion. Affordable, efficient, reliable… I highly recommend Sarah and her team and I look forward to working with her again as my business grows.

I am thrilled with Sarah and her team at The Hope Factory. Sarah was able to take my ideas and translate them into a website design which truly represents my brand. Her insights around functionality features and additional apps was also very helpful. I would be happy to use THF for any future Shopify projects and would highly recommend them.
-Regina Peterburgsky, Saks Melbourne
We are so happy with our new Dress Temple website. We found that Sarah spoke in a ‘language’ that we could understand and she was very clear and comprehensive when it came to the project, the timelines and the ins & outs of our contract. Sarah was available and quick to respond to our queries at all stages (including after!). We would definitely recommend Sarah for any similar projects and are very happy with the finished website and the performance of Shopify.
When it came time to create a website for my business I was overwhelmed and confused with all the options out there. I just wanted to get on with my business endeavors so I contacted several providers and it wasn’t hard to make the choice to go with Sarah from The Hope Factory. What stood out for me was Sarah’s promptness to respond to my inquiry, the level of understanding of what I wanted first go and communicating to me without the jargon of the computer world. Sarah delivered a product I was more then happy with and her after implementation service is impeccable. I highly recommend The Hope Factory for your e-commerce needs. They took away the confusion and frustration of creating a website so I could get on with working on my business.
-Wild Angel Studios
I love what The Hope Factory has done to my site. Sarah was very professional and honest and was able to work with me, on my current site and work within my budget.

-J’adore Le Boudoir
Came across Sarah after reading some fantastic reviews about her work that she has done with Shopify. Those reviews were not wrong and she did an amazing job of our new website. Great communication – Delivered on time I’ve already recommended Sarah to a number of business partners and tasked another 2 projects. You will not be disappointed!
We can highly recommend Sarah and her team. Our requirements for www.debao.de probably stretched Shopify to the max, as we are selling exclusively to China and thus needed to adapt to Chinese taste and needs. Sarah was always supportive, clear in what is possible and what not, and supported us in many choices that had to be made. She is very transparent in managing the development process, avoiding uncertainties. She and her team also supported us in uploading the product catalogue. We launched almost in time against our very ambitious planning, and we are very happy with our site. Products are selling well!
-德宝 debao Babyshop
Our experience working with Sarah has been amazingly effortless. She is extremely knowledgeable, and communicates in such a clear and concise format, and so quick to respond to emails. As we swapped our existing store to Shopify, Sarah has understood the importance of launching without downtime, and has gone above and beyond to be available outside of regular hours to make sure any problems were dealt with immediately so that things ran smoothly for us. She makes light work of all our requests and we’ve been really grateful to have had her help, then and in the future as we require changes moving forward. We couldn’t recommend her enough.
-My Messy Room
Sarah did a great job on all aspects of my site build. We had many discussions about technical and aesthetics matters. She was always readily available to communicate, patient with me and ensured all my requirements were ticked off. Lastly, her business acumen lent additional added-value, especially to those like me, starting their first eCommerce venture.
I had a good experience that consisted of a website build that was quick and manageable.
Sarah was very professional and delightful to work with. She has great follow thru and on top of everything. I loved her new ideas and creativity. I would love to work with her again.
-Fig Tree Jewelry & Accessories
Sarah was amazing and our saviour! We made the mistake of hiring a random freelancer who ended up costing us loads of money and making a mess of our site. Sarah and her team swept in and fixed all our problems and more! So was patient and understanding with our non techy selves and was upfront about time and costs for everything. There were no hidden surprises. Even after we were all done Sarah has been kind enough to help me with some problems I have come across that have a quick and simple answer. Everything her and her team have done for us was beyond what we imagined for our site.
-Mei Li Paperie
It’s been great working with Sarah and her team. They got my website up in no time at all and gave loads of helpful advice and suggestions! I’m really pleased with the work done and would certainly recommend their services!
-Lynette Lim, SOLE 2 SOLE
Very responsive and patient…went through many hurdles with app developers to find a way to implement the discounting features we wanted. And most importantly work was done promptly and communication was clear and honest so we were always aware of how things were progressing and any delays well in advance. Will come back to for more.
Very straight forward with clear information and guidelines, almost perfect and we could not be happier with the process and the result.
-Sono Vaso Limited
Very professional, prompt, and the website looks great, extremely happy with Sarah and the team.
Very accommodating, professional and informative. I am extremely happy with the outcome of my website. They were very helpful in jumping in to solve any problems that arose regarding the functionality and look of my site and offered advice to assist me in making decisions that I wasn’t sure about. I also found them very affordable.
We found that working with this expert was brilliant and she went over and above to help us, and actually worked beyond the original brief. Sarah is professional and a perfectionist and it shows in our website. We are thrilled with the result and will continue to partner with Sarah or all or our online solutions. We highly recommend her to everyone!
It has been incredible working with Sarah on the creation of my website. I really feel she understood what I wanted from the very beginning. She has always been very attentive and helped me with any problems straight away. I loved what we have created together and would highly recommend her to anyone looking to build a website.
Great job, great communication, I have and will continue to recommend this team.
The service Aussie Swim Store received was outstanding. The advice & support we received on any issues was instantly assessed and rectified with the explanation being very clear & concise. Advice on the best way to proceed with Shopify from selecting a template that specifically suited our business to all back end setup was brilliant. Highly recommended!
-Aussie Swim Store
Sarah was absolutely amazing! She knew about everything that I wanted done and gave so much incredible advice on how to make my store better. She was so prompt with emails and always kept me in the loop. I would definitely recommend her to anyone and would use her whenever I need anymore work on my site. Amazing!
Very quick and so easy to deal with. Was able to answer my questions and made the whole process a pain and frustration free – that would not have been the case had I tried to do it myself!

Fantastic to work with. Response within 24 hours and very helpful.
Sarah has been such an amazing help for me in starting my online business. Moving my business from a retail shop front to an online only store has been a big learning process, made much easier thanks to Sarah. With all the knowledge I needed, Sarah has helped me every step of the way. Sarah revamped my Shopify theme and now sales are going up.
Sarah is extremely professional. She created our new website in Shopify – just way we wanted it. Sarah was quick to answer our questions and her experience with running an online store is invaluable. Thank you Sarah – we love our new store.
If you’re starting a new business or upgrading an existing site, I strongly recommend using Sarah. Her knowledge and prior experiences in running a very successful children’s wear website makes her stand out from the others as she knows better than anyone that when starting a web based store. I love my Shopify store!
