AyadiPro initially developed a website and performed digital marketing to increase a business’ online presence. The project then expanded to include the development of the site’s mobile version.
The project was completed successfully and AyadiPro was recognized for their excellent communication and responsiveness. Their understanding of the task’s requirements allowed them to deliver a quality product in a timely manner.
A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.
Could talk about your law firm for some background information?
Our law firm started off three years ago and, when we first introduced to AyadiPro, we were small, and he worked with us on pricing. He knew we were going to grow with his help, and his search engine optimization and the style that he created for us certainly worked. That certainly helped us grow and, in subsequent revisions of our websites, taking it mobile doing those things, he’s really helped us out, not only growing the business, but also helping the website grow so we can attract even more clients to our target practice areas.
OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE
Your main goal for the website is really to attract more people through there?
It is, and the goals change as we went through different revisions. At first, our goals were to get the names up on the website so that people knew what the address was and people could find us easily because we had an interesting space where we were in a multitenant building. We want to give people a road map before they had to venture out the road and come find us. Those goals that we set out first, he met those very easily. As we got bigger, and we really wanted to start doing online marketing and giving to local marketing, so that we are getting people within the city and the surrounding area to come to our site before say they were located in a sunny day on a joining city. They could search, and we would be popping up earlier and so he helped us with that. Our most recent goal was to make sure that since we got into different mobile Web apps, Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter when we made that transition. Then, he also helped us take the website not from just being viewed good in a browser or all the browsers available but on everybody’s iPhone or whatever mobile device they’re using. He really listened to what we needed and didn’t give us less or more of what we needed, but really focused on where we were at and what we were going.
How did you discover AyadiPro?
I went to a leadership class here locally in Santa Clara, and I got to know them during the term of that class, and it lasted from January to June. I got to hear about the business and, through that class, we became friends. I needed a good webmaster, so it was a great relationship.
Could you tell me maybe a little more about the scope of the project?
We had a number of different projects throughout the growth of the company. The most recent one was taking us to the mobile levels and taking us from one version of the program that we use which is Open Source by the way, which helps control the costs. We’re using Joomla, and he took us from that older version to the version that would allows us to be visible on the mobile devices, and it wouldn’t look jumbled or have the wrong spacing or something like that.
If you’re comfortable sharing it, what is the general cost estimate for the overall project.
Early on, it was a lot less. I think the first project he did for us was right around $1,500 to $2,000. Subsequent projects where he would redo the website, I think we got into the $3,500 to $4,000 range. The recent on was even a little bit bigger because he took us from one version to the next version, and worked on not only the website itself, and adding in new pictures for staff and other things. We had a location changed, too, so when we moved from one office building to the other office building. We had to go out on the Web, and try to find the old location and make sure that everybody out there knew that we weren’t there anymore and that we had gone to a new place. They really helped out with that in making the transition over. Not only in the website but also the social media that we already had out there.
How long ago was the most recent version finished?
August or September was when we did the initial version, and the mobile site was probably January, February, March timeframe.
RESULTS & FEEDBACK
How happy are you with the results in work?
We’re very happy with AyadiPro, and the communication has been key because he communicates very directly. He doesn’t push us off to somebody else at the office. We’re always working directly with them, so there’s no having to communicated it twice to somebody. I feel it’s very effective to myself because I’m leading my organization of 12 people, and I don’t have a lot of time to explain two or three times to people of whatever it is I want, so he’s very effective at being the point of contact for AyadiPro. That really has helped out, too, with moving things along. Just making sure that I don’t have to spend more time on it than necessary.
Compared to other developers you may have worked with in the past, do you find anything special or unique about AyadiPro?
Their personal attention, I guess. If there’s an issue, he won’t hesitate to make time to come to our office. If things on email, communications aren’t working out, and we need to get together in meeting, sit down, have a face to face. That’s something that I know is different whereas other Web developers I’ve dealt with. They’re either too far away to do that, or even if they’re local, they just don’t want to get out of their office and come by. AyadiPro has been very available to us in those circumstances, and that’s helped it a lot.
Do you see any area where they could improve or do a bit better?
This is feedback from my group of people in the marketing, and the most recent revision I think they had went through a color change. I’m not sure if we were just so used to the color that it was before, but maybe he has left of attuned to marketing, and more of attuned to social media, and what actually happens with the website. That’s probably a coordination issue on my part, too, but I’d say that maybe his strength isn’t necessarily the marketing aspect as far as technical branding goes. But, I’ve got other people I hired to do that can give them guidance. I didn’t expect that in the first place, but if there was a weakness, let’s say that’s probably one.
