What people are saying about CACD
Since we launched 11 years ago the directory has gone from strength to strength. It has proved to be much more popular than we ever imagined and is top of the search engines for many related categories. Here are a few of the things people have said about us.
"The CACD site is comprehensive and informative, an invaluable resource for local artists and crafts people living in Cornwall. The website designer Jayne Herbert is extremely helpful, always ready with design suggestions. As an author, I hope to see more writers being featured in the future. There are a large number of creative people living in Cornwall, and this is an excellent site in which to promote and advertise their work. "

"When setting up my business last year I searched for directories and websites to partner with to try to help build traffic to my website. CACD has been by far the most successful in doing so, it is second only to Google and my own direct newsletters for driving people to my site. It is easy to navigate and updates can be made quickly and simply. Thank you CACD."

"Since starting my small jewellery making business a few years ago, I was looking for local websites to add my business listing to and found the Cornwall Arts and Crafts Directory. They have been really helpful in getting my listing on their website and the website itself is great for sourcing Craft shows etc. I've been contacted for a commission through my listing on the CACD and they rank high on Google's search for local jewellery so I think they are great. Andbecause they are based here in Cornwall it's even better."

It has been invaluable and I include it in all my correspondence regarding my work. Once again thank you. "
