What was the scope of their involvement?
3 Media Web Solutions built a new WordPress site for us. In the beginning, we discussed internally whether or not we wanted to handle the new site build ourselves. Our previous site was on the Wix platform, but we were debating if we should switch over to WordPress. Since it was a significant change for us, we wanted to make sure we had a plan for our new direction before committing to a development partner.
Once we ironed out the details on our side, 3 Media Web Solutions designed a new logo and worked on the storyboard, establishing the page layout, determining the colors, and getting the look and feel. After we locked that down, they started to work on the content and images—things that would actually fill the pages.
Development lasted from July–August 2018. They did QA before passing the site to us to look over in-house. Over that week-long period, we refined a number of things before launching the site toward the end of August. For the month after, they taught us how to use WordPress and answered all of our questions about the backend and administrative dashboard.
What is the team composition?
We were in contact with four primary people, including a logo designer, a designer, a development contact, and a project manager who oversaw everything. Beyond that, they also assigned two people who worked with us in September to train us.
How did you come to work with 3 Media Web Solutions, Inc.?
Initially, we researched vendors around March 2018. We looked at 2–3 companies besides 3 Media Web Solutions and chose them based on their pitch. I met with Mark (Founder and Team Leader, 3 Media Web Solutions, Inc.) and Lysa (Co-Founder and VP of Business Development, 3 Media Web Solutions).
They came to our office to walk us through what they wanted to do with a WordPress site. I found their way of explaining their business model as well as their pricing structure to be a good fit. They were able to match our project’s size and scope. After we discussed our company, they followed up with a proposal.
In the following 2–3 months, we talked internally to align ourselves on a WordPress site. Once we handled the details, we reached out to them and started working around June.
How much have you invested with them?
The logo cost about $1,500, and the website was $12,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
Their work lasted from June–September 2018.
