The Review
Feedback summary: 

The redesigned site is more sophisticated design-wise and, as such, has been well-received. Ladybugz accepts constructive input well, but also brings creative ideas of their own to the table at a reasonable value.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a manager at MassVentures, a venture capital firm located in Massachusetts.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Ladybugz Interactive Agency?

We were changing our firm name from Massachusetts Technology Development Corporation to MassVentures, so we needed to redesign and rebrand our website to reflect that. We also wanted the new website to reach a broader customer base in the Massachusetts area.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We gave Ladybugz information about our firm, then they submitted design ideas to us. When we agreed upon a design, they built the site in WordPress. We continued to provide them with updates to our portfolio and company information so they could revise the site. We now work with a design and digital marketing agency affiliated with Ladybugz to make further updates to the site.

What is the team composition?

We initially worked with Lysa (Founder and Partner, Ladybugz Interactive Agency), who is now the VP of sales and marketing for the affiliate agency, so we continue to work with her.

How did you come to work with Ladybugz Interactive Agency?

We were considering two other companies aside from Ladybugz, but one of our PR team members worked with Lysa in the past, so we felt most comfortable teaming up with her group.

How much have you invested with them?

We invested approximately $3,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with them in 2013 and the website was completed over the course of a few months.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve received very positive feedback on the website. It represents our company is a sleek, modern way.

How did Ladybugz Interactive Agency perform from a project management standpoint?

They were very responsive to our needs—usually via email.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They had excellent ideas for our website.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. I didn’t run into any major problems with them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Discuss with them what you’d like to be done. They’re very receptive to your ideas and expectations.

Feedback summary: 

Since Ladybugz’s work, email referrals have tripled, and 5-10 inquiries a week come directly from the new website. They’re a communicative and friendly team, and they are diligent about progress updates and keeping the project moving forward. They provide a warm, collaborative work atmosphere.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am an ADHD coach running ADHD Essentials. I take part in speaking engagements, staff development, and work one-on-one with ADHD kids and their parents, helping them navigate the challenges of this disorder.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Ladybugz Interactive Agency?

If you don’t have a website, you don’t exist. Mine wasn’t that great, and I needed to step it up a bit and add more multimedia elements. I can write, and I can work with ADHD sufferers, but, when it comes to building a website, I have no idea. I needed a local partner whom I could visit physically in order to specify what I wanted to be changed or added.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Ladybugz Interactive completely redesigned my WordPress site. They asked me what I wanted the site to look like, and were interested in customizing it to me. I gave examples of websites that I liked, and also looked at Ladybugz’s other work. Because I have a graphic designer, I came up with the color scheme, which had already been tied to business cards and material I use during presentations. They used this as a basis, and filled in any holes. I didn’t feel a need to modify the final result too much, but there was give-and-take, so Ladybugz was open to any changes I wanted to make.

They also took care of SEO, helping my site be seen online, and designed a landing page for one of my e-books. I haven’t asked Ladybugz for any content marketing services, but I’m sure they could provide this. Mostly, I wanted the website to be finished, since I have a full-time job. I haven’t dived too deeply into other details.

They added a copy based on some samples provided by them. I know what my business is, so I was comfortable doing this. Ladybugz made sure that the site was connected with my various social media pages, and basically gave me a home online. They structured it well, based on an understanding of web design and living on the internet.

The site has many of the usual components, including a contact form, a Home page, and an About Me page. There is also a section which talks about the ADHD disorder, a piece on the services I provide, and a media page containing some books, podcasts, and other material. I haven’t been doing enough with the last one, but that is my fault.

How did you come to work with Ladybugz Interactive Agency?

I found out about them through my graphic artist. I contacted Ladybugz, and they understood what I wanted. I also appreciated that they’re 20 minutes away from me.

How much have you invested with Ladybugz Interactive Agency?

The cost of their work was between $1,000 and $1,500.

What is the status of this engagement?

I started working with Ladybugz Interactive in September 2016. The site took 1 month to complete.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I’m not good at tracking metrics, but my email referrals have tripled or quadrupled. I receive between 5 and 10 inquiries per week, entirely due to the website.

How did Ladybugz Interactive Agency perform from a project management standpoint?

I dragged the project by not providing information, but they could have delivered it much quicker. Ladybugz has been easy to work with, and they know what they’re doing. I was kept informed about our general progress and deadlines. I really like the fact that they’re 20 minutes away, and I can visit them if I want to. The team is friendly, and I can actually joke around with them. This is exactly the kind of atmosphere I want to work in.

What did you find most impressive about Ladybugz Interactive Agency?

I’ve gone to their office whenever I had a question, and I find Ladybugz’ team phenomenal as people. It’s clear that everyone enjoys each other’s company, and that they like working there. They’re welcoming and interested in talking about my ideas. We have been discussing things beyond the website, including me setting up some workshops for Ladybugz.

Are there any areas Ladybugz Interactive Agency could improve?

Nothing comes to mind.

Feedback summary: 

Thanks to Ladybugz Interactive Agency’s creative precision, each website boasts seamless navigation and reliable performance, contributing to significant increases in event registration across the platforms. The team’s accessibility, adherence to timelines, and affordable rates continue to impress.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

The North Central Massachusetts Chamber of Commerce is a B2B organization focused on economic development in the region. Under the chamber umbrella, we have a few other affiliates, including the North Central Massachusetts Development Corporation and the Johnny Appleseed Trail Association. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Ladybugz Interactive Agency?

When we reached out to Ladybugz, we wanted to do a website redesign amidst a full-scale rebranding effort. Our chamber has operated for 30 years, so it was time for an update. Ladybugz provided a logo redesign and some printed materials and redesigned our website, which was very outdated at the time.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We started with the logo in order to pinpoint our color base. Next, on our end, we looked up other relevant chambers and business associations’ websites that have been nominated for national awards. We wanted to find a good example of our goals. We sent those ideas to Ladybugz, and they proposed different designs and templates. After some back and forth, we finally settled on a design. They populated it and worked with us to get the right photos from our database. They used WordPress to develop the website.

Ladybugz had to work with our database company (Steve Boyle and Associates [SBA]) to make sure that the pages work, are secure, and look seamless when people are navigating our site. That was one of our biggest challenges. They’ve also helped us with some SEO.

We’re a dynamic organization, and we host 130 events a year. Ladybugz did some work for our other organizations as well. Last fall, the designed a new website for the North Central Massachusetts Development Corporation. When we started a regional gift card program, they did that website. The challenge with that program was we needed the right certificates to take payments securely. Our tourism website, Johnny Appleseed Trail Association, was designed 4 years ago by another company. Ladybugz troubleshot that website and kept it running without any issues.

How did you come to work with Ladybugz Interactive Agency?

We started working with Ladybugz when we were looking to redesign our website. We sent off an RFP to every web designer in the North Central Massachusetts area. We got a number of proposals back, and they quickly became a top choice. After the interview process, we chose them to work on our website. In order to preserve the same look and feel across all of our affiliates, we asked them to do other websites as well.

How much have you invested with Ladybugz Interactive Agency?

For the 3 separate websites, we’ve spent around 50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We last worked together 2 years ago. They host all 3 of our major websites, plus our 2 mini-sites. We’re still partnering with them, and we’re looking to redesign our tourism website in the upcoming fiscal year. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We track numbers through our online event registrations, which has been significantly higher. With our previous chamber website, a lot of people had to call to register for events due to the insufficient system. That’s no longer the case. We also track our SEO, but I don’t have any of those numbers available.

How did Ladybugz Interactive Agency perform from a project management standpoint?

They were awesome, especially during the first project. Chambers are normally short-staffed, but we’re fairly large with a staff of 12. I and our president mainly worked on the redesign. Even when dealing with a variety of roles, they kept us on track while also giving us the time and space that we needed to do all of our other work.

What did you find most impressive about Ladybugz Interactive Agency?

I brag about their customer service. No matter what issue we’ve had—even on a weekend or late at night—they’ve always been right there with us. They’re always happy to help with minor edits or quick changes to make the sites as effective as possible.

Are there any areas Ladybugz Interactive Agency could improve?

No. We’ve worked with them on multiple sites, and we’ll continue our partnership.
