Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?
With any project, it's expected that you're going to go through some leaps and whatnot. With Eggs Media, I noticed they knew exactly what we needed. What made it seamless with these people was they already had so many other websites that they've done. We went through their portfolio, and we said we like this look and feel, and we like this infrastructure. They combined those elements. They were very quick on noticing what we need as an SEO company. Don't get me wrong. We've used them for other websites as well. I think they really understand our vision here.
If you actually go on our website, we do not promote Eggs Media as our website developer. We don't want to do that. We want to keep everything in-house. We've had a few people in the last few months who have asked, "What would it cost to do a website like yours, SEO Gorillas?" Obviously, they like the look and feel of it. I got some good feedback from people – our clients, friends, and family. I started getting a lot of feedback from clients who had seen our previous site. When they saw the new one, they were impressed with it. For me, that was good. In addition, I noticed that after the new site was launched, we started getting better rankings on Google.
How did Eggs Media perform from a project management standpoint?
To be honest with you, it was seamless. We didn't have to communicate much with Eggs Media. We would put content in Dropbox, and they grabbed it. They then set up a development environment and showed us changes before they implemented into production. They had a dedicated project manager who sent the proper documents for my admin to fill it all out. We're supposed to be very detailed with that. When they received the documents, they actually didn't get back to us. They just went ahead and built the website. Once the sites built, based on our document, then we went ahead and made the changes. I like that idea because their document is so elaborate and so detailed that you don't need to sit down and talk to them over the phone. We've actually incorporated that strategy. Now, we've started using some detailed documents for our SEO clients.
What did you find most impressive about Eggs Media?
Obviously, the quality speaks for itself. I will highlight what sets them apart from the other companies. Eggs Media was very responsive. If I emailed them, they responded quickly, and I like that in a company. We're an SEO company, so a website is not our forte. But, when I explained to them something we wanted on the website, they understood it quickly. They would throw something back at us. Once something's already on paper, we ran with that. For example, with the gorilla, they came up with that concept. They said that we should put a gorilla on our landing page. When I saw that image, it looked nice and described our company and our image. That was all Eggs Media's doing.
