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.

I have been extremely impressed with the staff at Brilliant Directories.

The site got up quick, the staff was extremely responsive without being pushy, and they simply have a great product that is packaged nicely.

Thanks for the great service!

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
