I first started using Geodirectory in 2017 as a directory owner and now help others build their dream sites.
Why Choose Me?
1) As a directory owner I’ve likely asked and researched the same questions you have.
2) Communication is a key part of what I do, see my reviews!
3) I’ve implemented a range of solutions for my clients, catering towards a range of budgets.
4) I specialize in lightweight website builds, advising you on ways to keep your website running fast.
4a) I recommend using GeneratePress and GenerateBlock to build sites, however I have worked with other solutions (Eg Elementor)
5) Geodirectory can be tricky when you get started, I can help you navigate your way around
6) Fast turnaround – I aim for a 2 week turnaround for most full site builds

Payment/Pricing information :
I can currently accept payments in AUD, NZD, USD, CAD, EUR, GBP but am open to adding more options.
My typical rates for “start to finish” website builds average around $50 USD per hour ($70 AUD), however this changes based on scope and duration of the project. I try to adjust my recommendation to cater for a clients budget and current website (eg with a limited budget I might suggest focusing more on design aspects than Geodirectory setup – letting the client handle this with my guidance, or vice versa).
My typical rates for consulting or training is around $70 USD per hour ($100 AUD). Discounts do apply for extended consulting or training, however most clients only need a few hours at most.
The main reasons for the difference in price between website builds and consulting is that website builds require more labor hours (allowing for “bulk purchase discount”), can be done to my schedule (rather than fixed timeslots for consulting calls), and allows for non-chargeable time to be spread over a higher budget (eg pre-start communication, administration etc).
My two main approaches are :
1) Working off your budget. This enables me to provide recommendations and create solutions that are flexible to how much you’d like to spend. This is typically used for website building projects.
2) Working off pre-paid hours. This is typically used for consulting/teaching projects or smaller website changes.
My personal directory business/project is www.grownvegan.com (first link in Portfolio section) although this is a bit outdated now. I also have a demo directory site that can be found at www.nathanpaveley.com/directory/ (Second link in Portfolio section)

Nathan is fantastic to work with. He was central to the design and functionality of the large GD website and instrumental in its success. I simply could not have built the site without him.
He is responsive and works hard to understand the requirements of each job. He is extremely capable and diligent. Employing Nathan would be a great investment in your site.
Nate helped me with my Geodirectory site when my regular developer disappeared and he was amazing!
He was very knowledgeable and helped me resolve a lot of issues and do some customization that helped make the directory function the way I wanted it to function.
I was also in a time crunch since the launch was way past the deadline, so he jumped right in to help me get everything done as quickly as possible which I highly appreciated! He was very patient and worked with me until everything was resolved.
And last, but not least, he is just a great guy to work with which is really important, especially in a stressful deadline situation when everything seems to be going wrong and your regular developer disappears!
So for those reasons, I highly recommend him!
As soon as I communicated with Nathan I knew I’d found a true professional, honest, talented and communicative person to bring my vision to life. Nathan takes time to fully understand the brief, if you’re not a GD expert yourself, your brief needs feedback and Nathan is extremely patient, advises on best approach for budget and shares his expertise to ensure you have the best product. He is interested, extremely helpful and if you need CSS, edits, design, coding any development work, he is the absolute best person to work with. We were on completely different timescales and it made no difference so please do consider him no matter where in the world you are.
Nathan went above and beyond and I will look forward to working with him again. Thank you so much for bringing my vision to life and for helping me in my journey, it means everything because I can now move towards my next steps. I wouldn’t ever hesitate to work with Nathan again, he’s the best.
I was struggling to get my website off the ground and Nathan came to the rescue! Straight away he simplified and patiently explained step by step. He took onboard all my ideas and brought them to life. My hope was I could learn along the way to take on any future revisions and updates and with lots of support including some great video training, I now feel I can take the reins. Thoroughly recommend. Thanks Nathan!

Nathan was extremely helpful. We appreciated the time he took to respond to our questions and the solutions he offered. He was very responsive and thorough. I’d highly recommend him if you’re looking for a GeoDirectory expert.
Nathan has a deep understanding of how the Geo Directory works. He is about to communicate very well. Nathan was able to solve all the issues I had getting a directory project done in a timely manner 🙂 Highly recommended.

Nathan was more than helpful with his knowledge of Geo Directory. He changed my theme and it looks amazing, made suggestions and completed all requests in a timely manner. His communication was impeccable which put my mind at ease.
I was already aware of Nate’s expertise seeing his responses on some Facebook groups. I had ideas to improve my existing directory website to get it ready for prime time and heavier traffic. Nate was easy to communicate with and I am satisfied with the results be delivered. I plan on using him again.
Nathan built my wordpress directory exactly to my specs, he was extremely patient, efficient and his communication is fantastic. I will absolutely be enlisting his services into the future. Very happy and highly recommend.

Excellent services, clear communication, open to working on changes. Could not have asked for a better experience in helping to build my directory website. It looks great, too!
Nate helped me with a newly installed GeoDirectory site. I needed a tour guide to help me navigate the terms and processes. I contacted Nate and he was great!! Very thorough and he knows his stuff. I really appreciated that he didn’t overwhelm me with technical jargon – he communicated with me in a way I could understand.
If you need a directory expert, Nate’s you guy! Get in touch with him for the help you may need!
