What was the scope of their involvement?
Dynamic Designs NW developed our new website. We had the content but didn’t know how to approach the whole project. Stacie was perfect for us. She presented an overall package and laid out an outline of how we’d deliver information and make the website happen. The first step of execution was deciding to go with Shopify to develop the platform.
Apart from web and e-commerce development, Stacie helped with the web page layout and gave us homework every week. She’d assist with questions that we needed to think about and provide content for. Once we had that, Stacie gave us choices to decide from. Sometimes, we’d have to tweak the backend of Shopify to make a page look a little different.
Stacie guided us on how to select what would work best for our website and created lists of things for us to do. It was a back-and-forth methodology for quite a long time. Overall, the project was a very long process because we had to put it on hold for a while.
We wanted our website to tell the story that we’re able to tell when we go to conferences. Our product is complex. All a person sees is a box, but they don’t understand the process involved with it. Essentially, we needed a professional photographer to help us tell our story. Stacie helped us put the photos into a slideshow presentation on the website.
Dynamic Designs NW still maintains our website. When we need something changed, there’s a fair amount I can go in and edit myself. However, Stacie handles more complex changes. In addition to the website, she provided a fair amount of social media marketing efforts. She created our Instagram and Facebook accounts as well as got our blog up and running. We attempted utilizing Facebook Ads but didn’t receive a lot of traffic from it. However, Stacie did a really good job with advertising regardless.
What is the team composition?
I only directly work with Stacie (Founder). However, I know she pulls in colleagues when needed.
How did you come to work with Dynamic Designs NW?
We found Stacie on Craigslist. I initially called her, but she was the one who reached out and followed up. She came up with a plan and walked us through every step of developing the website.
How much have you invested with them?
I’ve invested between $4,000–$6,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working together in March 2018, and the work is ongoing.
