What was the scope of their involvement?
I met with Deborah [Owner and CEO, All Day Web] to discuss the project, and she provided me with a basic quote. We had a meeting to give her a better idea of the scope where she sat in with our engineers, as well as some potential users who wanted better mobile functionality. We met again a month later to go over her designs, then after we chose one, we began working on a regular basis creating various graphic elements. Once this was completed, I took over the regular maintenance, and we now only communicate when we make changes.
She helped with SEO and the backend client control panel, and also managed the frontend while I used the backend to control and update content. It was very important to me to be able to make content changes immediately.
We wanted clients to be able to easily obtain information, so we needed to have excellent SEO. We also wanted to be accessible across all platforms, including mobile. She made sure our site was easy to find and visible on multiple devices.
What is the team dynamic?
I’ve only worked with Deborah. I inform her of what I need, and she immediately implements it.
How did you come to work with All Day Web?
I searched online and found All Day Web, and saw that they were local. I liked the idea of having someone close because it would be easier to contact them.
How much have you invested with them?
We’ve spent $40,000 total, and we pay about $50 per month for website hosting. We’re billed accordingly for any backend changes, but they've been very few.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working together in 2008, and the relationship is ongoing.
