Feedback summary: 

Designzillas has been an outstanding partner. They invested a great deal of time in understanding the industry and the business in order to portray the company well and impact qualified prospects. This beneficial partnership is ongoing.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company.

We import natural architectural materials from around the world, and sell it back to lots of theme parks, zoos, restaurants, [and] consumers on the island.

What is your role?

I am the owner and president of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was your goal for working with Designzillas?

We wanted to increase our visibility on the Web. Our website was also a little outdated. We wanted to move to a more modern look. At the time, I was terrified, because I had tried it once before with a company, and they nearly closed our business. Unfortunately, they didn’t know what they were doing, so I was very nervous to try it again.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their work.

It was to take our existing website, not to change any of the content really, but to give it a face-lift. Our pages had already been written, we just wanted a completely new and fresh look. We also needed a program or a website that we could get into the backend and edit ourselves. We didn’t want to rely on a company to do all of our edits. We switched to Drupal, and they migrated all of our content to the new system.

How long did the project take?

About four months, and that was probably four years ago.

What was your process for selecting Designzillas with which to work?

We interviewed three or four different companies, and I just felt the most comfortable with them while talking to the owner and team. They were a group of young people, which certainly helped with new ideas. It was fresh life, so to speak. I can honestly say that because I was so nervous of what I was about to put the company through, I think they just really settled my mind and assured me they would stand responsible for anything that happened. They got my business that way.

Can you provide a ballpark dollar figure for the size of the work that they’ve done for you?

About $40,000.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What were the results of the project?

The initial project [the website redesign] was completed four years ago. The second project [search engine optimization] is ongoing. It’s been almost a year that we’ve been with them again.

Do you have any statistics or metrics to track improvement from the project?

We’ve gotten positive feedback from our customers. We’ve always had such a nice, positive response that it’s a very clean site. It’s easy to see, easy to read. So, that is one good indication. We didn’t drop rankings at all. We maintained where we were, and got better. Then about two years later, we thought that we could do better with our SEO [search engine optimization]. We kept the same website but we started looking at another company to do the SEO. We went with another company for about a year.

Designzillas called us and wanted to know why they had lost our business. I was very explicit about exactly why, because we’d dropped in the rankings, and we couldn’t really get a hold of people when we wanted them. They came back again and did a superb job, and we are doing round two with them right now. Technology changes so quickly, and they brought a brand new perspective to the website. The website hasn’t really changed that much. We tweaked it, but it’s all about now the SEM [search engine marketing]. That’s why we’re with Designzillas right now.

How would you describe their performance?

It’s always a work in progress. We never quite know, with marketing, what the results are going to be when we try different things. I think they are definitely a company that’s ahead of the game. They listen to our needs, and they respond quickly. I just love working with them.

Is there anything unique about them that really makes them stand out, compared to other companies?

We worked with a very tight team. You really get to know those team members. They know my business inside and out, more so than the other company did. They have really invested a lot of time learning our business, customers, and products. I think that’s what holds their value for me, as a business owner. They know my business already.

Looking back on the work so far, is there any area that you think they could improve upon or something that you might do differently?

The problem areas that we have, they are getting better and better at. So, there’s nothing that I would say really needs improvement. We have monthly meetings where we talk about it, and within a month it’s improved. I think they’re doing a good job. They should just keep doing what they’re doing.

Feedback summary: 

Designzilla's detailed project summary and homepage design were met with great approval. The design team brought enthusiasm and expertise to the project, responding well to feedback and personally addressing individual concerns. 

BACKGROUND

Could you provide a brief description of your company?

We’re a seasonal agritourism business. We’re a farm that also has attractions, activities, and petting zoos.

What is your role at the company?

I’m the vice president. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

Could you describe the business challenges you were trying to address?

We really needed to update our website. I could have just gone to one of those cookie cutter websites and filled in our information, but we really wanted it to be functional with a variety of capabilities like ticket ordering and scheduling, so we wanted to get some experts.

SOLUTION

What is the scope of their work?

They’re developing a whole new website. They are pulling some of the text and pictures off of the old website, but a lot of that is just placeholder until I get around to giving them more information.

They gave me a very detailed, 10 to 15 page summary of the work that they would be doing for us. It was a really nice presentation they gave us. All the technical specifications were in there.

How long have you been working with Designzillas?

Our first meeting was in May [of 2014].

Do you have an approximate completion date?

Right now, we’re aiming for September 1 [ of 2014].

Why did you choose Designzillas with which to work?

We did a lot of Google searches for Web designers. We really liked their portfolio.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in monetary terms or work-hour figure?

It’s $15,000.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

In terms of results so far, could you share any statistics, metrics, or user feedback that would demonstrate the effectiveness of the work they’ve delivered?

It’s very good. The designer took a lot of time with all of our concerns. I sat down and went through it piece by piece and told them how we thought it would be better, be more functional. He took those comments and really incorporated them and fixed that home page up very nicely. We were very pleased with the results. We’re only done with the home page. He’s working on the other pages right now.

How would you describe their performance?

I like their energy. They’re young. They got really excited about what our business is, and we could tell that they would put a good effort into letting our customers know what it’s all about.

Is there any area that they could improve on or that you would do differently?

As this point, I don’t think so.

Designzillas managed the entire project within budget, remaining responsive and highly capable throughout the process. The new site has received positive feedback for its professionalism and usability. 

 

BACKGROUND

Please give a brief description of your company and your role there.

We’re a commercial real estate company based in Orlando. I’m the managing director of the office here in Orlando.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

When you approached Designzillas, what was the business challenge that you were trying to address?

We were a new company. We needed a website that people could go to and we wanted it to look professional and look like we know what we’re doing. That was the main challenge. 

SOLUTION

Yes.

How long did the project take?

I think it took almost three months. It was in the first quarter of 2014.

Are you still working with them?

Yes, we are working with them currently. They are updating our site to a mobile site.

Why did you select them to work with in the beginning?

We met with a couple of folks and liked what they had done. Tonio [Bianca, strategy consultant with Designzillas] is who we met with. We liked him. We thought the pricing was reasonable and their work was good. That’s why we chose them.

Can you give a sense of the size of the project either in a cost range or personnel work-hour figure?

Less than $10,000 with them originally, [and] $2,500 with them now. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Not that I can think of at the moment.
