An All-In-One Godsend

By Greg C. – Pennsylvania, USA

My name is Greg Campisi and I am founder and president of Awaken Center for Human Evolution. When we were looking to launch our new website, we were looking high and low for the perfect software to run a directory, a calendar, and to be able to create community and after months and months, nearly a year of trying to work with WordPress, trying out different plugins, nothing was working. We couldn’t find a plug-in that handled switching membership levels, we couldn’t find a plug-in that actually handled recurring payments, and just all kinds of problems. We had a different plug in for calendars, a different plugin for directories, different plugin for everything and it was a mess.

Being on WordPress is prone to hacker attacks and other issues, plugins blaming themes, blaming hosting, and I didn’t know what to do. And after all the time and effort we put in I was at the end of my wits and we found Brilliant Directories and they’re amazing! The people there are amazing, the software is amazing, they know how to build the right system all in one, everything you need, it’s easily expandable and we just love everything about it. It was a godsend. It saved the project and we’re just so grateful for them.

Thank you!

Has Everything Out of the Box

By Christopher K.

Brilliant Directories is by far the best membership site on the web. They offer a fully integrated solution that enables you to start a membership directory business in as little as 2 days. 3 years ago I paid over $10,000 for a customized membership directory site that didn’t have the features that Brilliant Directory provides out of the box. The site is very simple to configure and easy to use.

Brilliant Directories has solved a major problem for me in my business and am now making over $10,000 a month.

It Truly is Brilliant

By Michael M.

I’ve spent the better part of a year working with various directory systems, mostly built on WordPress. These systems were buggy, slow, expensive, and prone to plugin breakage. It was a frustrating experience getting them to work.

I was skeptical of Brilliant Directories until I tried it out. Wow! With their system, I had a working directory in minutes that was fast and simply worked.

One of the great things about their system is that it’s incredibly customizable. They’ve built their system on a widget platform that allows you to not only customize any part of the site, but you can use your own PHP and javascript code to create your own functionality.

There have been a few times when I’ve needed some help with their system, and I’ve found that their support team is very quick and efficient with ticket requests. They have a nice knowledge base and community forum that answers a lot of your questions.

Brilliant Directories has enabled me to stop wasting time on difficult WordPress systems and actually get to work building my directory. I wish I had discovered this service earlier.

Awesome Staff & Company

By Mark S.

This is a fabulous product provided by fabulous folks. I’m loving it. The support is awesome. I feel I have found a family and friends. I have been looking for this script for ten years. I have tried every script out there, gone back to old options, tried again and ended up back at square one.

Then I found Brilliant Directories and what a find. Finally, a ten year search and some-one had the nous to do the job properly and completely. The last word on directories.

Amazingly Great Software!

By Paul N.

I’m pleasantly surprised! It’s always been a dream to be able to create web directory website. I’m really happy with the service. I’ve never had customer service call me to make sure everything is going well. Dennis was very kind, understanding, and explained everything clearly. This really made me feel happy & comfortable. I love the videos. They are so easy to follow and everyone seems knowledgeable, yet so friendly. My site has been up for months and I’m looking forward to a long term partnership. With service like this I feel like I would go to battle for Brilliant Directories.

Look No Further!

By Joseph C.

I started using Brilliant Directories 6 months ago after trying to build directories on my own. I found their product to have all the elements that I needed to have in order to launch a directory. They gave me individual support and training to learn how to personalize and customize the directory for my market. I look forward to a long and productive relationship with Brilliant Directories. If you are looking for a directory for your niche then look no further. Brilliant Directories has it all.

Brilliant Directories Is A Definite A+

By Andy J.

Brilliant Directories is amazing. From the first moment I reached out to them through their website, the experience has been terrific. The system is the cleanest directory system available in the market today, bar none. The people at Brilliant Directories are top-notch, and are always ready to assist in every way possible. I have worked with a lot of companies, both as a business owner and international business consultant, and I can truly say that Brilliant Directories understands what a “great user experience” really means.

If you are considering going into the directory business, I would highly recommend talking to the experts at BD. Jason, Matthew, and their team truly care about their customers.

Simply put, you would be hard-pressed to find a better directory team, or directory technology, in the world today.

Brilliant Product + Support

By Richard N.

First, I have admired this directory a little over a year ago. I consider myself mid-level experience in web design. I am very proficient with Wordpress and Drupal but Brilliant Directories is far less complicated. The day I found this directory sometime around June 2014, it was the most beautiful directory I ever saw at that time even without trying out the admin demo. If I didn’t buy this directory a year ago it was because of price was a little on the steep side. Now that I own this directory I now know why it was somewhat pricy.

The numerous video tutorials associated with this product is worth more than the cost of this directory considering that several scripts out there charge exorbitant sums with very little guidelines or customer support. No Directory theme or directory on the market today comes even close to this product.

Super User-Friendly!

By Erica A.

I highly recommend Brilliant Directories for anyone who is interested in starting a directory website. Both their software and customer support are first class!

I’ve been interested in holistic health for a number of years. I’ve found it hard to track down reputable holistic health care providers, so last year I decided to create a web site where holistic practitioners can list their services (and eventually get rated). This would be helpful not only to me, but tons of folks worldwide who prefer a holistic approach to healthcare.

I first started trying to code the site on my own using an ‘easy’ plugin, but realized it was never was going to be what I envisioned. I then tried to hire a developer to create the website for me. I got several quotes from curiously cheap to very expensive. In general, I found them difficult to communicate with and didn’t feel that they understood what I was looking for.

Luckily, I came across Brilliant Directories in a Google search. Not only did they understand what I was trying to accomplish, but they were able to execute my vision quickly. I found their customer support to be both extremely knowledgeable and patient with my questions. They even shared strategies to help get my first hundred members listed. 5-stars!

A Message From The Founder

Jason Haloossim, CEO & Co-Founder

The first Brilliant Directories website was our own. In 2009, we took an idea we believed in and built software for it from the ground up. The idea was to build a directory website of interior designers and build an empire around it. But there was a problem: the software we found seemed to work against our ambitions at every turn. Back then, the options for directory software were unreliable plugins or expensive custom development. It was incredibly expensive, unnecessarily complex, and frighteningly unstable to combine random plugins.

Existing directory software did not have the features we needed and were not solutions we could rely on. Furthermore, as young entrepreneurs with basically no budget, we didn’t have a lot of money to invest in expensive development, so we rejected those options and created our own. Our custom software met our needs so well that we decided to take everything we learned and shifted our business away from the interior designer directory and towards fixing the glaring hole in the directory software market. We knew that we weren’t the only ones looking for a better directory software, and there needed to be an option to support the needs of start-ups and established organizations. We set out to create the software that we wished would have existed, and we launched it in 2010 under the name Brilliant Directories.

Brilliant Directories is exactly this: the only platform you need to build your directory website. Brilliant Directories is reliable, complete, and most important, saves you time and money compared to traditional web development. It’s a mission that we take very seriously. We stand behind our product with top-rated customer service and a dedication for continually improving our software daily. With thousands of users worldwide and growing every day, we hope to help your dream come online very soon.

To your success,
Jason Haloossim

Brilliant Product + Support

By Richard B. – United Kingdom

Hi Brilliant Directories! This is Rich Burn from Beezeen.com. I just wanted to post this video to say that we are super excited about using Brilliant Directories. We did a lot of research into using a directory website.

There are huge amounts of companies doing it but definitely Brilliant Directories is one of the best we came across. Customer service, pricing, the licensing, and actually the usability and functionality is excellent. As you can see behind me we’ve got our website which is back to front, and we’re building a local online business community for businesses across the south of England. So this is going to offer us great opportunities to help businesses network, connect together, profile themselves, and make people aware of who they are.

So Brilliant Directories, I know we’re going to be just as successful as you guys have been. We hope your support will help us to get there and we’re looking forward to using the product! Excellent! Thank you very much. Take care!

The Best There Is

By Ebo O. – New Jersey, USA

My name is Ebo and I’m just making this quick video on behalf of Brilliant Directories. I recently bought my first license, but before I even going into talking about my license purchase, I want you guys to truly understand the journey that I’ve been through to get to this place – to find Brilliant Directories.

Now one may wonder, “what took you so long to find Brilliant Directories?” But believe it or not, I’ve actually gone out of my way to pay money, and lost money, dealing with private developers trying to build my own platform to build a website, a directory website, a membership website to the same caliber that I can now build using the Brilliant Directories platform.

You know to tell you the truth, I was lucky to have found this program at a time when I was able to get a big break on the price. But I was 100% prepared to pay full price for this software once I really understood the power. Once I understood that it was exactly that I was looking for, for over 10 years.

With Brilliant Directories on your side and a license from them in your pocket, you will always be first to implement your idea. Doing my own research and hearing a whole bunch of heartfelt testimonials and actually test driving the software and seeing that it’s exactly what I’ve been looking for for the last ten years and longer – that’s what converted me.

Invest in your dream.

Brilliant Directories Is A Lot Of Fun!

By Patrick W. – Illinois, USA

Hi, my name is Patrick and I’m one of the developers here at 2Nerds Design Studio. We are a third-party company that works with Brilliant Directories’ current and new members. I have seen a lot of software out there on the market for directories and I have got to say Brilliant Directories is one of the best on the market.

The reason is because Brilliant Directories is very user friendly and helpful to new members that join the site. One thing that Brilliant Directories allows their members to do is to create directory websites very easily and at a very cheap price which is wonderful for people who are starting up their own business. Also Brilliant Directories has a good SEO optimization platform for customers which is very important for growing your business as well.

I would say Brilliant Directories is probably one of the best and it’s been a lot of fun. That’s what we love working on — Brilliant Directories’ members and new members that come on board. So I always suggest to members who want to start a directory website that they should use Brilliant Directories as their platform to do so.

Better Than WordPress

By Sean K. – California, USA

Hey guys. My name is Sean and I’m the owner of Website HQ. We buy, build and sell websites and domains all the time and I just want to tell you about Brilliant Directories and why I think that it’s by far the best solution for you if you are looking at a directory business model.

So any time in the past before we were aware of Brilliant Directories, when we had a project like this come down, we would go out and we would look at WordPress themes and maybe develop a custom WordPress theme. And then we would cobble together this mishmash of plug-ins from a bunch of different developers and try to make everything work. We quickly realized that it’s a lot harder than it seems at first because you’re doing things like figuring out how to handle payment processing, recurring subscriptions, allowing your members to create their own profiles, customizing the login, the registration, multi-part forms… There’s just so much that goes into building a directory site that Brilliant Directories has taken off of your plate with their product.

And having moved my directory sites to Brilliant Directories’ software from WordPress, from old antiquated scripts that I bought in 2005, I can tell you it’s just night and day better. The things that Brilliant Directories has thought through for you, that you no longer have to worry about, is a huge win. And it allows you to focus more on what’s really going to make a big difference for you and to make or break your site, which is your ability to go out and sell to numbers and persuade them to buy a listing on your directory or buy a membership so they can get the leads.

It also allows you to focus on the other side of the equation which is just driving traffic to your site. So no more development headaches or even the design which is mostly taken care of for you and it’s so easy to customize for the brand you’re trying to build and the special angle that you have – the idea that you have for your specific directory.

So if you’re looking at directory solutions, honestly I’ve looked at all of them. Brilliant Directories has nailed it. They’ve got Bootstrap on the front-end so if you’re looking to do some customization it’s just going to make it so much easier; and things like payment processing; they’ve even taken care of the hosting for you. It’s just hands down the best solution you’re going to find if you’re planning on building a directory site. So I hope this information is helpful to you. I can’t recommend Brilliant Directories enough and I wish you luck in your online ventures!

Amazingly Powerful Software!

By Angele B.

When the Government of Canada, Department of Canadian Heritage, and the Office of French Language Services of the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long Term Care financed our interpretation application for the ministry of health, we needed to find a platform that allowed us to easily and quickly build, customize, and manage our website and mobile app landing page.

We first tried using WordPress but customizing third-party themes and getting multiple plugins to work correctly with one another proved to be far too difficult and time consuming. We even rented multiple web developers to get WordPress to work for us but they were too costly and couldn’t build us the website we needed.

Brilliant Directories’ stock Bootstrap theme is beautiful and functional and has more features than we even need (but are happy to have!). Our in-house team was able to quickly make custom design changes while maintaining the functionality of the website. We were even able to make our customized app landing page on the BD platform (http://www.accueilfrancophone.com/med-interpret)! Customer service was also top notch. We opted for their Professional Onboarding Plan which was definitely worth the money – saved us loads of time and helped get us up to speed on the platform. Now our team can manage the website without a problem.

I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect solution. The entire team here at l’Accueil francophone is thrilled with Brilliant Directories and our investors are happy that we were able to get the website and app landing page launched quickly.

Feel free to take a look at our website: http://www.accueilfrancophone.com

This Company Is Brilliant

By Doris F. – Florida, USA

Hi guys. My name is Doris Flewellen and I’m located in Pembroke Pines, Florida. I want to take the time to share with you my experiences with Brilliant Directories. First I’d like to say, yes, I highly recommend them. As a business owner and someone very new to the directory industry, I had no clue as to what it is I needed to do. I didn’t know where to start. I didn’t know where to begin. The customer service at Brilliant Directories is amazing. Ultimately, it’s the customer service and the warmth of the whole team that allowed me to make the decision as to whether or not I was going to purchase this software. And I’m glad that I did because the support, like I said, is amazing.

The company itself is brilliant. I have to tell you this story – I had so many membership levels in my directory it was ridiculous. And it was funny because I could just imagine the look on Jason’s [Brilliant Directories CEO] face when he was looking, like, “what is going on here?” And so what he did is he actually took the time to straighten that whole mess out for me at no cost to me. That was amazing.

I’ve not only bought one directory, I bought two. If you are skeptical/undecided as to whether or not this company is the company that you should purchase your directory from, take it from me, I highly recommend that you choose Brilliant Directories simply because the support from their customer service department is awesome. There’s not a time when I sent over a frustrating email and someone sent one back in frustration. It was always patience. They’re very patient with you because trust me, I have seen my fair share of angry emails out of my own personal frustrations of trying to figure out what it is I want to do, and when Jason [Brilliant Directories CEO] called me personally to say, “Hey, we don’t want you frustrated. We want to resolve the issue and we’re going to resolve it today…” I love that. I love that confidence in his voice knowing that he was not going to let me get off that phone upset like I was. And when I got off that phone I’ll tell you I was relaxed. It was a weight lifted off my shoulders and it was one less thing I had to worry about. And I thank them so much.

So again if you are undecided/not sure if Brilliant Directories is the route to take, I can tell you, you need to take it. No more hesitating. Do it today. You need to lock in on those promotions or whatever opportunity that was presented to you and jump on it because it’s definitely worth it.

Now my directory is generating money for me and I owe it all to Brilliant Directories. I owe it all to the team. Overall, to everyone who had a hand in putting this whole thing together, it’s amazing. I appreciate you guys. I love you guys! Thank you so much, guys. I highly recommend Brilliant Directories. Thank you!
