Feedback summary: 

The new site is much more succinct, user friendly, and clearer than its past iteration. Kobe proactively reports progress and requires minimal oversight to reach goals on time. The team is responsive, adaptable, and communicates clearly.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I work as a Manager at a cardiovascular clinic that treats lower extremity vascular insufficiency.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Kobe Digital?

We had a company managing our website and social media outreach, but we were disappointed with the productivity and growth. Things weren’t running as seamlessly as we’d like, so we began looking for another company to take over those services.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The first thing Kobe did was revamp our entire site. The old version was wordy and contained too much information, so Kobe made it simpler and added more icons for quick access to information. We kept most of the original graphics and only tweaked the colors a little bit, making the new site much more user-friendly and concise.

Kobe also helps with marketing, SEO, and social media posts. They create digital ads, printable ads, and email blasts that help grow our business, especially in social media. I provide them with ideas, photos, and vendor/manufacturer marketing materials, and they put it all together to make the information succinct and match our brand.

What is the team dynamic?

We work with a team of three at Kobe Digital.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working in March, and it’s still ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We haven’t received any specific feedback from patients, but our staff has reviewed the site and likes it. They say the design is easier to navigate than before, and they enjoy how intuitive and user-friendly it is.

How did Kobe Digital perform from a project management standpoint?

When we first partnered and I had questions about what they could offer, they were very clear in outlining what they could do. The project manager and I exchange emails or phone calls about two or three times a week. They’re responsive and make necessary corrections or additions within 24 hours. Before they post anything, they send it to me, and I’ll usually edit it or add hashtags that are more industry-specific.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their accessibility and independence has been wonderful. We’re busy and often don’t have time to educate ourselves about their process or technology, and they understand that. They make things run smoothly and don’t require much oversight to get them done correctly and on time. They’re willing to answer our phone calls or explain something when needed, and they share information and explain concepts in a way that a layperson can understand. They communicate clearly and adjust to make corrections or implement a new, better approach.

Are there any areas they could improve?

At first, it took a while to understand the jargon of the other’s field. Being more aware of that barrier and actively seeking ways to overcome it could be helpful. Now, however, we don’t have the issue anymore.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The website has received positive feedback from customers so far, highlighting its design. Kobe was great at giving instruction and asking for information in order to move forward with the work. They were also flexible with feature requests, delivering them without charge.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the owner of a restaurant.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Kobe Digital?

I needed to build a new website. The old one was very simple and lacked many of the features that I wanted.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Kobe designed and developed my WordPress website from scratch. It needed to have a number of features such as the ability to make reservations, inquiries about our banquet facilities, and gift card purchasing. They also designed a logo for me.

What is the team dynamic?

We communicated through email and phone, but I also visited them a couple of times in order to convey exactly what I wanted. I worked with 2 of their members directly, but there were more people involved.

How did you come to work with Kobe Digital?

I heard about them from friends and got in touch.

How much have you invested with them?

The cost of their work was around $2,000. I was given a very good price given how elaborate the website is.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in March 2017 and the website project finished in May. We’re currently discussing other services like pay-per-click and search engine optimization.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Many friends and customers have seen the website and appreciate its design. The feedback has been very good.

How did Kobe Digital perform from a project management standpoint?

I had to provide details like food ingredients and descriptions. Being in the restaurant business, I don’t have a lot of time, so I appreciated their willingness to look after me and tell me what to do. One of the reasons for the project taking so long was that I was late in delivering content to the team. If it was left up to me, it most likely wouldn’t be finished yet.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They did what I wanted and were flexible with the scope of the project instead of charging me more for certain features.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I’m happy with their work and I don’t think there’s anything to improve.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Knowing what to ask for will help, but most clients aren’t web designers. Doing more homework myself would have made a difference, but people in business don’t have an idea of what they want. Once we started the project, I took some time to look around at other websites and find ones that I liked.

Feedback summary: 

The site has not yet officially launched but is already attracting donations that the old site did not. Its design was well-received by the board and early visitors. The team’s project management was excellent, and they took the lead on maintaining regular communication and always responding fast.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Beyond Vision Music Foundation is a non-profit which provides music lessons to blind or visually impaired people. I am a member of the board of directors and help the founder run the foundation.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Kobe Digital?

One of the reasons I came to the advisory board, at the request of the founder, was my background in social media and the digital and technology side. We had a fairly outdated website and wanted to redo it, in order to prepare for applying for grants.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The new site was done from scratch, starting with new designs. We kept some of the content, but the design was brand new. WordPress was used as the base for the website, and we incorporated a donations module, embedded multiple YouTube videos, and included the ability to have a blog on it.

The redesign included marketing material, as well as SEO items to make it more searchable on Google.

What is the team dynamic? 

I believe there were 2 main members in the team, and a third came in occasionally.

How did you come to work with Kobe Digital?

We looked at a few options. They had done some work for our founder, in one of his other businesses, and had a fairly good understanding of the overall scheme, as well as a familiarity with the music industry. I looked at the other websites they had done and the expertise they brought in; one of the key factors which made a difference was their work with Google on applications for non-profit organizations. Google provides search credits for non-profits, which is very important to us. They were familiar with how a website should be designed in order to attract Google’s attention and get their approval.

How much have you invested with them?

They get a monthly payment for maintaining the site. As long as we agreed to stay with them for one year, they would provide the main development as part of the minimum monthly fee. Our deal also involved applying to Google for funding. They would get a percentage of that grant, once we got to the last stage. 

There was little out-of-pocket money involved, which is good for our organization. If we do bring in money as part of advertising or donations, they will receive a capped portion of it. As a non-profit, it’s a good deal for both our parties.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in June or July 2017. We had some design discussions before this time. The majority of the work was done in a span of 2 months, then we went live at the end of August.  

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I was the one driving the project, and the rest of the board was somewhat impartial. They really like the site, as have the visitors who’ve seen it. We had zero dollars in donations prior to this, since the site didn’t give off the image of a safe and secure platform. Now we’ve started to see donations coming in already, even though we haven’t even officially launched the site yet.

We are cleaning up some other items and putting together an email list in order to send an introductory message. Some of these things had never been done prior to me joining the board, but we’ve started to slowly move forward.

How did Kobe Digital perform from a project management standpoint?

I was happy with how fast they could turn things around. They worked directly with me and were very responsive in terms of project management. I provided guidelines over what we were looking for, as well as some suggestions for the implementation, but much of the work came from them. They managed the ongoing communication and we had almost daily calls, particularly towards the end. I presented a series of items to them and worked on those. Some things were left completely on their plate, like moving hosts.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their level of experience and know-how. They are a group of young people, but age can be deceiving. They have good ideas about technology and how to layout the design, taking what I had in mind and making it real. Their work ethic and ability to turn things around quickly was great. It was simply pleasant to work with them. Their levels of professionalism and knowledge were very important.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I don’t think anything stood out. I had a good experience with Kobe Digital, and there nothing I could mention at this point.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Stein Music and Arts Center is a music and art school and teaches music and art classes, as well as language classes in the community. I am part-owner.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Kobe Digital?

People go online to search for music schools, and we needed a company strong enough to spread the word for us.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They built our website from scratch and gave us suggestions on how it we should create it and how to target everyone. They also recommended where we should advertise and whether we should do so 24/7 or only at a certain time.

They work and manage our social media, though we collaborate on what we post, and always send out messages on Facebook and Instagram. They're helping us to get people to know our business. We're moving away from traditional advertising on the radio and newspaper, as we now get most of our clients online.

What is the team dynamic?

We have 3 people from their team working on our project.

How did you come to work with them?

We initially found them via the radio. The owner is my husband’s piano student from when he was young. We knew him and his ability and that we could trust him. We interviewed a few companies, but Kobe seemed to be the best one to go with.

How much have you invested in them?

We have invested about $12,000–$15,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in September 2016, and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Everyone says they love the website and how it easy it is to navigate. Kobe added a page where clients can input their name and phone number so we can contact them right away. Everyone likes how easily they can get in touch with us.

How did Kobe Digital perform from a project management standpoint?

They have performed excellently. We mostly communicate over email, as well as in person, and they're always available. We're constantly in touch with them. They ask us what they can do to improve the site, and make recommendations on what we can do to improve it as well. Working with them has been a nice experience .

What did you find most impressive about them?

They are quite modern and up to date. People who previously created websites for me wouldn't even consider looking at the site. Kobe really knows what they are doing and understands the market.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I can’t think of anything. They are always there and respond right away. When we've asked them to do something, it gets done immediately.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the general manager at a medical office that specializes in venous insufficiency in the lower extremities, or circulatory issues with the legs.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Kobe Digital?

We were relatively new in the area, so we wanted the local populace to know who we are and what services we offer by expanding our digital presence.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Kobe Digital helped tech-savvy people locate, identity, and contact us. They increased our digital presence by creating and maintaining our website and social media, and developing and executing campaigns and email blasts. We later noticed a need for a Spanish version of the website, and they helped develop that as well.

What is the team dynamic?

We usually had around two people working on our site.

How did you come to work with Kobe Digital?

They were referred to us and, after seeing how modern their own site was, we decided to hire them.

How much have you invested with them?

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our office staff and clients all really like the site. It’s clean and easy to navigate.

How did Kobe Digital perform from a project management standpoint?

They let us have a lot of input into what they built. The whole process was interactive, but they managed the bulk of the work.

We communicated via text message, emails, phone calls, and some face-to-face meetings.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They not only know their craft, but they also love their work and know how to make their clients happy. They’re always willing to work with any crazy idea we came up with, but they also let us know what they don’t think will work. They’re incredibly responsive; I can text the project manager on a Sunday night, and he’ll reply right back.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Some of the team members aren’t native English speakers, so the Spanish translation was a little difficult.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the owner of Parsa Skincare, a male skincare company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Kobe Digital?

I’m a newcomer in the IT area with social media. I’m picky and have dealt with so many people from outsourcing, in-house, and even local businesses. I was looking for someone who was young and hungry, but also professional.

I usually would get people that are older; they don’t want to do too much. Then there’s the young ones that don’t really know what they’re doing, but they want to get into a business. I needed website development and design and social media help.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They built my website on Drupal and still maintain it. I gave them an outline of what I was looking for and asked them for feedback. Arya [Manager, Kobe Digital] and his team emailed me back that same day, shared their ideas, and pulled it together themselves. They helped me brainstorm. It was really easy.

They’re very versatile. They also do my Facebook, posting almost every day, and we’re going to start doing Instagram and other avenues as well. We’re still working on it.

What is the team dynamic?

I’ve worked with 3-4 people, at least.

How did you come to work with Kobe Digital?

They were a referral from a friend. These guys are young and aggressive. They want to get things done. Their surge of energy attracted me to them, plus they were very professional. I was so excited to work with them.

How much have you invested with them?

They gave me a pretty good discount because it was a referral. Other companies charge double what they charge.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in July 2016 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I get great feedback on the website; it looks fantastic.

How did Kobe Digital perform from a project management standpoint?

They were fantastic. I give them a 10 out of 10 for communication. It’s very easy to get a hold of them. I’ve dealt with other companies that are so hard to get a hold of, and the longest it ever takes Kobe Digital is the next day.

They’re super polite and respectful. We used Skype in the beginning because I wanted to make sure I correctly conveyed my vision, but I only felt the need to do that a few times because they’re really good at reading people and understanding what you want to convey.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re great with technology. The one thing that they’re amazing at is their customer service. They are above and beyond in that realm, and that’s what really matters to me. Anyone can punch in some codes, but not only do they make sure that you get what you want, they’ll also give you samples and give you their ideas. They’re not pushy; they’re really nice.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, they’re doing a great job. I have no complaints. I can call them any time of the day and they’ll take my change request and call me back in 30 minutes with it done.
