Feedback summary: 

Flamingo Agency delivered an aesthetically and operationally superior site that generates an increased amount of traffic and customer engagement. Their responsiveness and organization streamline the project. By accommodating the client’s schedule and requests, they support a successful partnership.

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 a headshot and portrait photographer. I primarily work with people in business who have a website or social media presence and want a photo that will set them apart from others.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Flamingo Agency?

I had two different websites that I linked and managed myself. It was a messy situation, and I knew that it wasn’t right. However, I didn’t have the time to fix my problems. I needed someone to manage the website and format it to be SEO-friendly.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Flamingo unified my two sites and identified a couple of other problems, namely load time. Their team resolved that problem, speeding up the load time to create a more satisfying experience for people. Now, CloudWave hosts my website. They also recommended that I switch email services from Bluehost to Office365 for business.

I wanted to include content from my other sites, and Flamingo rearranged it. I didn’t want them to write code for the website because I needed a platform that I could maintain. Their team then used a WordPress template that I approved for its versatility. Right now, we’re putting more content on the site. For example, I’m writing copy for my gallery page.

What is the team composition?

I directly communicate with Chris (Founder).

How did you come to work with Flamingo Agency?

I talked with three different website designers who I found on Google. I know that website designers can live anywhere, but I ultimately wanted to work with someone in my area because it would require less explanation. Chris was forthcoming and friendly. He also had a lot of ideas, and I appreciated how he came across.

How much have you invested with them?

This is a $5,000 project. Their team’s reasonable.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started the project in August, and the bulk of the project wrapped up in September 2020. Now, they’re fine-tuning the website.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Their team’s always able to complete my requests. Contacts through the website have gone up. Google shows that people are coming to my website and my inbox shows that too. Also, every contact form now comes to me as expected because of the new email process. The website looks good, functions well, and is easy for me to maintain. I’m really pleased with the template.

How did Flamingo Agency perform from a project management standpoint?

It’s easy to get a hold of Chris. If he doesn’t pick up the phone, he calls me right back. He always reiterates our discussions in an email to keep the project organized. That lets me know that he heard what I said and that he’ll act on it.  Their team doesn’t put pressure on me, which I appreciate. They want to get the project done the way I want it.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re a can-do type of team. I talked to other agencies that planned to set it up and then I would fill it in. I would’ve had to do way more than I had to do for Chris. Another agency wanted to start from scratch and didn’t want to work with WordPress. If I ask Chris for something, he makes it happen. They’re friendly and listen to what I have to say.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, my experience has been exactly what I wanted and then some.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

It would be helpful if you had examples of websites or features that you would like to have on your site. It would also be helpful if you had content ready for them. Don’t reinvent the wheel and try to figure it all out yourself.

Trustworthy and readily available, the team works quickly and provides helpful reports.

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 owner of Lakeview Maids LLC, a residential cleaning company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Flamingo Agency?

I needed help getting more customers.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Flamingo Agency built my website from scratch three years ago when I opened my company. They continue to help me with changes as needed. They had me show them websites that I liked and what colors I wanted, and they did the perfect website.

After the website was built in 2017 and I noticed I was slowing down, I contacted them again in March 2019. They offered to do SEO and PPC. They also do backlinks and email marketing for me.

What is the team composition?

There are three people that I communicate with.

How much have you invested with them?

I’ve spent $20,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in March 2017, and it’s ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They do a wonderful job helping me. We’re the first one that pops up when people search online for cleaning services in our area. 

The work with them has been really successful; we are at the top of search results. Three years ago, nobody knew us; now, we’re all over Chicago search results and are at the top amongst the biggest companies, even though I just have a small, family-owned business. I actually stopped having them do PPC because we got really busy.

How did Flamingo Agency perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicate with them via email. They do the changes that we need right away. We also call or text them. They’re available when we need them.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They show me all of the reports and how many people visit my website. They’re honest and trustworthy. Whenever I need them, they’re available.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, everything is perfect.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be really open about what you want. The people from Flamingo Agency will always do the tasks even better than you ask them to. If there’s something they can’t do, they’ll let you know.

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 owner of Germophobex. We’re a sanitizing and disinfecting business geared towards commercial spaces, such as doctors’ offices, schools, and colleges.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Flamingo Agency?

We wanted to get the word out about our process and specific applications and underscore our advantages over businesses in the same space.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Flamingo Agency built our website from scratch. I did give Chris (Founder) some websites to use as a starting point. He then went off on his own to come up with something special. The site has double the pages of the average site because of the specific reach I wanted the site to have.

What is the team composition?

Chris is our main point person, but another person did some of the mundane work.

How did you come to work with Flamingo Agency?

Chris built a website for my apparel business’s brand and did an amazing job. I had found him by accident and saw that he had some nice reviews. I spoke to him a little bit and discovered that he’d done work in the fashion business and that I liked his portfolio. It was a no-brainer to go to him again.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent about $5,000–$6,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started in early March 2020. The project’s still ongoing — we just started doing SEO this week.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It’s too soon to tell any metrics. However, people that visit the website and inquire about our services are very complimentary of the site. Chris clearly understands our business needs and the customer we want to reach. He’s also got a strong background in SEO, which we found advantageous.

How did Flamingo Agency perform from a project management standpoint?

Chris delivers when he says he’s going to deliver. I threw a lot of extra stuff at him after the fact, and he still made our deadlines.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Flamingo Agency is a medium-sized company that operates like a boutique company: they’re very hands-on, which is important to me. They can really tweak their services to our needs without us spending too much.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I have no complaints. Chris is accessible 24/7, which is important to me. I once texted him at midnight and got a reply by 7 a.m. the next morning.

Any advice for potential customers?

I highly recommend Flamingo Agency. Chris is very easy to work with, works hard, and knows his business. SEO is a great add-on for him and customers like me.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Flamingo Agency?

Our existing site was a little dated, so we decided to use Flamingo Agency to focus on upgrading our website design to more of today’s standards.

Flamingo Agency designed and developed our website. I provided them with a few themes and examples of what I liked to give them an idea of what I was looking for.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their timeliness in responding to inquiries and revisions was very professional.

They could’ve been a bit more organized when it came to revisions, but that’s about it.

Any advice for potential customers?

My advice would be to ensure you’re using somebody from your own company that has the time and attention to detail to be working on something like that. Having someone who is decisive is very helpful as well.

We had to relaunch our website. When we acquired the new brand, we had to update everything, which included a detailed website. Eventually, we want to launch an e-commerce platform.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Flamingo Agency built our website from scratch using WordPress. We gave their team a couple of visuals. Then, they designed several layouts and asked us about our preference. According to that layout, their team developed the site that included a header and an about us collection.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We started to share the website with our retail partners. They’re excited to use the product as a customer platform.

How did Flamingo Agency perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re efficient and thorough. If I sent an email, I received a response within 24 hours. We converse via phone and email. Their team makes sure to answer all of my questions.They also provide explanations and print screens to help me understand. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

Flamingo Agency makes it easy to understand the technical pieces of the project. Anything that I sent them such as ideas or features, their team broke down the ideas and told me how they could make the idea happen. That made it easy for me to understand the project’s length and investment.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They’re amazing. I’m so glad that we were able to work with them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I recommend conversing over the phone to understand how they work and the project timeline. Have them explain the development process week by week because it’s not simple.
