Feedback summary: 

The crisp, attractive site network has successfully secured additional interest from an affluent clientele. Fyresite’s team skillfully and intuitively translated a precise vision into a sustainable, cohesive platform. 

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

Jarvis Group is a real estate and investments company.

What is your position?

I am the marketing director of the group. Previously, I was working for another real estate company that builds luxury custom homes, taking care of architecture and interior design. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Fyresite?

Fyresite developed four websites for my companies. When we needed to revamp the website for my current company, I immediately thought of Fyresite.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in greater detail.

Fyresite setup all four of our WordPress websites, allowing us to make our changes and not have to rely on them for small fixes. Fyresite set us up with SEO, Google AdWords, and metatags. The sites are mobile-friendly. One of them had over 20 pages; it was very intricate, with each page leading back to the other. The sites feature high-quality pictures, slideshows, text, buttons, and so on. We told Fyresite what we were going for in targeting a high-end, affluent clientele. We showed examples of what we wanted, and Fyresite took our vision and actually made it better. My boss is one of the pickiest men on the planet, and he loved the website.

One of our sites was for real estate. Fyresite installed a plug-in which allowed people to see the for-sale homes and land. Another site is intended for our online presence and is meant to help grow our social media. It was photo-oriented, and everything needed to be crisp, clear, and beautiful.

The websites needed to communicate with each other since our company allows users to tap into all services concurrently: you can buy a house from us and decorate and renovate it. Fyresite was able to make this integration very well. They were good at corresponding and contacted us frequently by email and phone.

How did you come to work with Fyresite?

I spent hours finding companies online and interviewing them. I had worked with several website companies in the past; they were horrible, wouldn't respond for days, and wouldn't execute our vision. Based on this experience, I came up with a specific questionnaire. After interviewing Fyresite, I decided to go ahead with them. I'm glad that I did.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

Fyresite built four websites for $3,000–$4,000 each. The total cost is around $16,000, including online marketing.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Fyresite in 2015. The whole process took between six months and a year to complete. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

We were a word-of-mouth company, so whenever a client mentioned us, other people would want to see our work and saw the caliber of what we did through the website. The page made it easy for them to understand what we were about.

How did Fyresite perform from a project management standpoint?

Fyresite was great in terms of communication. They got back to us immediately, stuck to appointments, and maintained constant communication. I found this important since I wanted to make sure that we were getting our vision for the website across.

What distinguishes Fyresite from other providers?

I think that Fyresite's work is beautiful. Compared to theirs, other sites look archaic and badly put-together. Fyresite can build a cohesive and beautiful website. Also, I've known them for three years, and Fyresite has kept the same team. This says something about the management and how well they work together.

Is there anything Fyresite could have improved or done differently?

I think that their main strengths are being able to communicate, hear what we say, and execute it perfectly. I don't have a single bad thing to say about Fyresite.

Feedback summary: 

The site has received positive feedback from users, and its professional presentation has garnered new customers. Both the PPC advertising and the conversion rate have increased.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a law firm providing consumer legal services in the criminal and personal injury spaces.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Fyresite?

Our website was outdated. We needed to modernize it and make it mobile-friendly, as more and more of our traffic was coming through iPhones and iPads, rather than desktops.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Fyresite redesigned our website in WordPress, making it more mobile-friendly. I gave them a certain set of parameters for things that I wanted to include, but also gave them free reign on how they would be incorporated. I needed contact forms and embedded videos, for example; how those would be displayed was Fyresite's choice. I approved things along the way.

How did you come to work with Fyresite?

I've known one of Fyresite's owners for a few years and had worked with him in the past.

How much have you invested with Fyresite?

Sorry, this is confidential.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our project has been completed since March 2016. I don't have an ongoing maintenance contract with Fyresite, even though they do provide those services for others. I'm proficient enough in WordPress to maintain the site myself.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

Anecdotally, I've heard compliments about our website from multiple people. Clients have told us that they selected our firm because of the professional image presented on the site. I haven't received any negative feedback for the work done by Fyresite.

The rate of return for our PPC advertising has increased due to the website being mobile-friendly. Our conversion rate has climbed, so there's been a noticeable uptick in business.

How did Fyresite perform from a project management standpoint?

Fyresite performed well in terms of project management. I directed a lot of the work, so the focus was on Fyresite doing what I told them to. The fact that I have web development knowledge has helped and has put me in a different position to other clients. I'm certainly not an expert like Fyresite's team, so they've definitely explained what needed to happen in layman's terms.

What did you find most impressive about Fyresite?

Fyresite's designs have always been top-notch. I've used them for several websites, which turned out as some of the better-looking ones in their field. The graphics team from Fyresite is superb. They've designed logos for my firm, as well as for other businesses I've been involved in.

Fyresite has a mastery of WordPress, being able to accomplish things that I didn't think were possible.

Are there any areas Fyresite could improve?

Nothing comes to mind. I've used Fyresite on several occasions. If I did have a problem with them, I wouldn't keep coming back.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with Fyresite?

Any potential clients should have a clear idea in mind about what they want accomplished with a website. There's no substitute for doing your own work. Fyresite is good at taking ideas and parameters, bringing them to realization.

Feedback summary: 

The new website has drawn significant praise from users, who claim it should be the standard for academic institutions' websites. Fyresite demonstrated genuine interest in and a clear understanding of the project.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

The Space and Terrestrial Robotic Exploration (SpaceTREx) Laboratory at the Arizona State University is a research facility focused on developing technologies for extreme environment exploration.

I was the business development and media manager.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Fyresite?

I was responsible for bringing vendors in and cutting deals with them for satellite CubeSat builds, as well as handling the media and public relations tasks. With this came building a new website.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Initially, Fyresite was brought in to revamp our site, but they ended up building a new one, given that the old page was unusable from our standpoint. Fyresite also worked on a website for another organization I was involved with, called PoliSpace, which is a small, government space policy firm in Washington D.C.

Fyresite was also responsible for analytics tracking and visualization for the different orbits that our science was involved in.

How did you come to work with Fyresite?

I researched companies in Arizona using Yelp. Fyresite was the first group that popped up. It turned out that they were very interested in space, so we got along well on that front. They also had a feel for the industry, which is very rare. The 2-3 other companies I looked up hadn't built any websites with any excitement to them. We ended up hiring Fyresite.

How much have you invested with Fyresite?

The development cost was $1,200 to $2,000 per site.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Fyresite in July 2015. I haven't worked with Fyresite since the second website they built was launched, but they're definitely my go-to firm. Fyresite was easy to work with and delivered exactly what I was looking for.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

Fyresite provided good speed and clarity of communication, even when we didn't know exactly what we wanted. They were able to pick up and implement our requests perfectly.

Multiple people have told me that the website Fyresite created should be the standard for academic institutions. It stood out as something that people might actually want to read through and access for information, as opposed to the HTML-only, standard websites that are out there.

How did Fyresite perform from a project management standpoint?

Fyresite was quick but thorough. I've had to deal with some odd requests and nitpicky things from bosses. Fyresite was incredibly patient and understanding in these cases. They knew the process well and set the expectations for our projects.

What did you find most impressive about Fyresite?

I appreciated Fyresite's ability to communicate with the scientific community. Our whole experience with Fyresite was great, so it's hard to pick one thing.

Are there any areas where Fyresite could improve?

No. I'm picky when it comes to contractors, so I wouldn't have gone back to Fyresite if we had a bad experience.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a law firm representing injured and wrongly accused clients throughout the state of Arizona. I am a lawyer and the owner of the firm.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Fyresite?

I needed to develop a custom website for my law firm. I had been working with a company that provided template-style websites to law firms in the US. The price point was inconsistent with the reach that our site could achieve. I wanted the ability to customize my website and add content on a daily basis, based on market requirements.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Fyresite developed my mobile-friendly custom website. I was connected with individuals that could provide content in areas that I'm familiar with, with the help of Fyresite. This showed me that they were truly interested in the customer experience. In total, we've used Fyresite for 3 redesigns.

How did you come to work with Fyresite?

I considered other local web developers. I found Fyresite's principal to be accessible and willing to discuss my needs.

How much have you invested with Fyresite?

The average cost for a site rebuild with Fyresite was between $4,500 to $11,000.

The customer feedback for the website has been phenomenal. I have been getting more conversions through it, which has been important to me. I run a people business, so I need customers to see my prices and the services that I provide, then call me. I can contact Fyresite for any changes and have the work done. They are in tune with the customer's needs.

How did Fyresite perform from a project management standpoint?

On a scale of 1 to 10, I would give Fyresite a 9.5 in terms of project management.

What did you find most impressive about Fyresite?

I appreciated Fyresite's accessibility. As a potential customer, I needed to be able to sit down with the developer and exchange ideas before signing a contract or paying them money. I sat down with Fyresite's team and saw how they work, turning my ideas into action within a short period of time.

Are there any areas Fyresite could improve?

No.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

Arizona Fasteners Corp. is an umbrella for a number of companies: Arizona Fireplaces, AF Steel Fabrication, AF Distributors, Grand Canyon Gas Logs, and Modern Flames. Arizona Fireplaces is a local retail fireplace shop offering different brands of fireplaces and related services, like installation. AF Distributors is a distribution company focused on fireplaces and barbecues for the South-West. It offers drop shipments to online retailers across the country. AF Steel Fabrication is a local steel company which produces structural steel for buildings, custom homes, and anything else that would require such a structure.

Modern Flames is an electrical fireplace manufacturing company focused on the engineering and design of units which are built in our China factory. We ship our products all over the world.

Grand Canyon Gas Logs is a gas log manufacturing company with plants in Indiana and Northern Arizona. We sell our products all across the United States and Canada. Given the number of companies run by our corporation, it can get confusing. We operate through three buildings and are also building a fourth.

What is your position?

I run Grand Canyon Gas Logs and am in charge of marketing for all other companies.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Fyresite?

We use their team for the marketing of all our companies.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in greater detail.

Fyresite is a one-stop-shop for us in terms of SEO [search engine optimization], website design and development, and social media. We wanted to test them initially, so we allocated the Modern Flames marketing budget to Fyresite. The goal was to build brand recognition and have the company become a household name within the electric fireplace market. Their team has done a phenomenal job in the sense of building an entirely customized website for us and working out-of-scope in order to build it as well as possible. Fyresite also did a tremendous job with respect to our Google rankings.

Modern Flames is now ranked in the first page for "electric fireplaces," a term which encompasses the entire industry. We are ranked in the third position, and the two companies above us are Lowe's and Walmart.

The biggest project we've undertaken with Fyresite has been the custom website built for Modern Flames. The previous page had been around for four years. It was a bit old and outdated, so it needed to have something that would make it pop. Fyresite created video backgrounds within the website in order for users to see electric fireplaces burning in a room setting. They also made it a lot easier to navigate the website. Even without having the exact knowledge of what they were looking for, a customer could determine what fireplace was best for them, what its installation entailed, have access to manuals, and so on.

Quote requests, finding dealers, and a display section were some key elements needed for the site. Fyresite created user-friendly implementations of these.

How did you come to work with Fyresite?

We started working with them a year and a half ago, working on fliers and other material. The original collaboration didn't work out because we had a small budget and were unable to direct them as we required. They were very much willing to work within our constraints, but we didn't have the man-power or the time in order to guide them. We know our business better than anyone, so Fyresite needed our help.

We went to another company with which we were fairly happy, but we couldn't get everything that we needed out of the relationship. They were poor on communication and weren't what we were looking for. We decided to make a change and considered four other companies before settling on Fyresite once more. They key determinant for going to them was the fact that they are local and have a very diverse team which can do graphic design, web development, and SEO. They are also very technical in an app development sense. We wanted to create a user-interface app for the Modern Flames website down the road.

Their communication was fantastic. They constantly email us, and we have weekly conversations. This, and the type of staff that they employ, were the two main reasons for selecting Fyresite.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

The annual cost of their services is between $50,000-200,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together for our second collaboration in July of 2015. The Modern Flames site was launched in September. We're constantly adding more tasks for Fyresite, and we're increasing our budget. They are creating more material for us on Facebook and YouTube for the Modern Flames company. We've also turned over website updates and edits to their team.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

We've seen an excellent increase in traffic to the website that Fyresite built for us. From the previous year, it has risen by at least 20%. We have an online chatroom which used to receive three or four conversations per day. We're currently seeing three to four chats at a time. People are always on the website, asking questions.

We used to be on the third Google page for the term "electric fireplaces." We're currently on page one, beneath only Lowe's and Walmart. Fyresite has increased our Facebook likes through a small campaign, and they've also expanded our YouTube views. We have a few videos with more than 30,000 views.

We've seen some great results and are overall happy with their efforts.

How did Fyresite perform from a project management standpoint?

They were on-time consistently. We used a project management tool with which we could communicate and track backend issues. Fyresite was very prompt in answering our queries and getting tasks done. Their communication and work ethic are top-notch.

What distinguishes Fyresite from other providers?

They have both a great graphic design team and a good technical one. Fyresite was able to manipulate our WordPress website, basically transforming it into a custom one. They're back-end technically-inclined and also keep up with the latest trends in terms of frontend elements. They know how to get customers and are technologically advanced.

Is there anything Fyresite could have improved or done differently?

Things could have been done differently on our end in terms of allocating more time and budget to our various companies. Fyresite has done a great job in terms of working with the budget lined up for them.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

We are a barbecue grill manufacturing company. Our grills have computer-run feeding systems, fans, and thermal centers.

What is your position?

I am the Director of Sales.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Fyresite?

At the time, we could run our grills off of Wi-Fi. We wanted to create an app which could operate the grill and feature profiles, enabling the user to monitor a longer cook from afar and have programming capabilities. We approached Fyresite and inquired about what could and couldn't be done.

Our scope of work was building an app that could provide the same level of automation found in spas and other systems, but for a grill.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in greater detail.

The first step was choosing the Wi-Fi chip which would be used on the hardware side. We then developed the Android and iOS platforms for our product.

We needed technical support capabilities, for which Fyresite also helped us, before hiring our internal staff. They brought our product to market alongside our company, even going through the negative ratings for the product and determining why people were unhappy.

All our work for the company website has since been switched to Fyresite as well, extending our scope.

How did you come to work with Fyresite?

We approached three or four developers in the beginning. The goal was to find someone that would be willing to put in the extra time, instead of punching-out at five o'clock. I needed a company that would deliver results and that I could trust. I wanted to be able to contact them at any time of day or night and receive an answer. Before even choosing a company, I will look at their response style and general dedication. Passion is important when choosing a working partner; they should offer their own ideas instead of simply doing what I tell them to. I had this feeling about Fyresite, and it has proven to be right.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

This is confidential.

What is the status of this engagement?

We first approached them in 2013. We're still working together. Fyresite is in charge of our servers and they handle any redundancy issues. We're also working on a few tweaks for the apps.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

The idea of Wi-Fi connectivity has brought some attention to our sector. We've seen some growth in the company since starting the project.

We've had four-star ratings on both the Apple store and Google Play. Overall, Fyresite has done a good job.

How did Fyresite perform from a project management standpoint?

I'm very detail-oriented, so I've pushed them harder than normal in order to deliver results quicker. They don't usually come to me with scopes, but rather I will tell Fyresite that I need something done by a certain date. They've always delivered for me and hit every mark that I asked for, so I have no complaints.

What distinguishes Fyresite from other providers?

Fyresite has brought their entire team into anything that they've undertaken. They have a lot of passionate people who put in their two cents no matter what. They're not just yes-men; they want the product that they're working on to be the best out there. They ask the right questions and give advice and recommendations on things that I'd never thought of. For example, they suggested trying Facebook ads for my product, which led to more sales. They also gave me feedback in terms of design.

Is there anything Fyresite could have improved or done differently?

No. I don't have any criticisms for them.
