BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I was the founder and managing director for a retail business selling newborn baby products.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Magnet Co, LLC?

Magnet Co, LLC designed and developed an e-commerce platform. The team relaunched the site twice as the business grew in the following years.

What were your goals for this project?

I wanted a visually appealing, user-friendly website. The platform also needed to support specialized shipping demands and customized products.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

After receiving a personal recommendation, I did research on Magnet Co, LLC and found they were suited to meet my needs. As an e-commerce novice, I wanted a vendor that understood my lack of experience. Their proposal format was easy to navigate, and the price fell within my budget.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

The team custom built an e-commerce website. It was created to fit the needs of a growing business, allowing the easy addition of new products and pricing. They also designed the site to be compatible with a local payment gateway provider.

What was the team composition?

Gavin (Co-Owner, Magnet Co, LLC) was my main point of contact. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

The website played an essential role in growing the company from a small online store to a multi-million dollar business.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

I believe they used Basecamp to manage project development and communication. The team documented key decisions, providing timelines for each stage of the process.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

It was convenient to have direct access with a company owner. Gavin understood both the technical aspects of site design and my business requirements. His expertise informed key conclusions, and he offered helpful advice throughout the project lifecycle.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, I can’t think of any areas of improvement. Companies will find Magnet Co, LLC to be a personable and professional business.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am an independent actress living in the Cincinnati area with experience in theater and film.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Magnet Co, LLC?

Magnet designed a beautiful portfolio site for my acting career in a very short timeframe.

What were your goals for this project?

I wanted a high end, professional site to show off my headshots, video, and resume, based on the standards of my industry.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I was recommended Magnet by a friend, and after a phone call was confident that they could accomplish what I wanted for a price I was comfortable with.

Describe the project in detail.

After several discovery meetings to learn about what I wanted, I was presented with an outline of the site, kind of a blueprint so I knew what to expect. I sent all of my photos and videos and Sarah even helped me touch up some things and upload videos on Youtube. After a few weeks of design, I finally saw the site and we did two rounds of edits to swap out some pictures and move some things around.

What was the team composition?

Sarah, Gavin, and Alex helped me with the site.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

I went from not having a site at all to getting traffic from, and now I use it as my portfolio and resume. Sarah restructured my resume and made it look so professional and that's visible on the site now as well. It's such a great tool and really sets me apart from other actors.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

It was so easy. I'm not web savvy at all, and they not only helped me navigate through the design process but taught me enough to allow me to make my own updates as well.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their willingness to walk me through the process stands out, taking the time and effort to explain everything. How I could empower myself to drive more traffic to my site was great. They were so nice, which was very comforting because I was really intimidated walking unto the process.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I can't think of anything that could have been better. Magnet was professional, helpful and built me a website that looks much more expensive than I could have ever dreamed.
