Feedback summary: 

Online sales increased considerably, and the site has functioned well for four years. Axented was quick, communicative, and effective. Their design was attractive, and their project management was strong.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the founder and CEO of a jewelry company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Axented?

I needed help with the development of my online shopping website.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

At the beginning, they asked a lot of specific questions about what I wanted. I gave them two examples of websites I loved, and I told them how I wanted the site to flow. They merged ideas from both the sites I suggested, and we exchanged images and discussed colors.

They designed everything from the ground up for a Shopify site, and they added a blog, a facts page, and a helpful dropdown menu. They gave a lot of useful advice about what would work best, and we made some small changes after the site went live. It's a really good concept, and we haven't had any problems in years. Four years later, the design is starting to look a little dated, so we're discussing working together on a new one.

What is the team composition?

I worked directly with three members of their team.

How did you come to work with Axented?

One of my main contacts there is a relative of mine. I had no idea how big Axented was, so the project grew to be much bigger than I originally thought it could be.

How much have you invested with them?

I spent approximately $1,500.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together for about two months in early 2015, beginning around February.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

After they developed my site, online sales went through the roof. The design was very approachable and user-friendly, which led to some really impressive increases in revenue. I loved the look of the site and was so happy with the result.

How did Axented perform from a project management standpoint?

Their project management was perfect. They had access to Shopify, and they dealt with everything quickly. We communicated through email and occasionally met in their office in Monterrey, Mexico.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They delivered exactly what I wanted, and continued to provide excellent service after the project was finished.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I'm excited to remodel the page. My only regret is waiting so long to work with them again. I don't have any recommendations for improvements.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Do your research before you hire them. The whole process will be easier if you have a clear, specific idea of what you want.
