The Review
Feedback summary: 

As a result of Forty4 Design’s work, the client saw an increase in leads and overall business. The website they developed is user-friendly and runs smoothly. They provided exceptional service for an affordable price. 

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 co-owner of an e-commerce business that prints and sells shelving paper for kitchens, bathrooms, and more.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenges were you trying to address with Forty4 Design?

We hired them to build our website, and host and manage it.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They built our website using WooCommerce. We gave them photos or our inventory, and they put everything together. Customers can select from multiple sizes for their paper, or put in their own custom measurements. It’s also integrated with PayPal and our shipping system. 

They’re also doing some digital marketing for us. For example, they’re running Google Ads and other social media ads. They’re also engaging with our customers through our social media platforms. 

What is the team composition?

I worked with Felix (Founding Designer) and two other team members that helped with development. 

How did you come to work with Forty4 Design?

I did a Google search for web designers. Felix contacted me, and he was the most affordable option. 

How much have you invested in them? 

We’ve spent between $10,000–$50,000 so far. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in July 2019, and our relationship is ongoing. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The website is very user-friendly. A lot of our customer base is older, so they’re not always the most technologically savvy. However, Forty4 Design made sure that the website was easy to navigate. 

Our business has been gradually increasing since we started working with them. They send us regular reports on how our ads are performing. We’ve seen an increase in leads from digital marketing. 

How did Forty4 Design perform from a project management standpoint?

They’ve been great. Their team is always willing to answer any questions, and they’ll even do additional research to help us out. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

They make you feel like they care. It’s nice that they’re willing to learn about our business so they can better help us. They take pride in their work. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

There’s nothing they could improve. I don’t have any complaints, they’re one of the easiest vendors I've worked with. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers? 

It’s best to communicate via email so they can have everything in writing. 

They really listen to what you want, but will also provide feedback based on their experience.
