A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

Our company is a retailer of vapor products. We have a brick-and-mortar store as well as an online marketplace that Realize Internet Marketing created for us.

What is your role and responsibilities?

I’m a co-owner. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was your goal for working with Realize Internet Marketing?

The vision was to have a well-organized website so that we could be easily accessible to our customers by organizing content into different categories with a very user friendly shopping cart function. The site also can create modifiers for several different products. The look and the feel of the website was very important to us to represent our brand well. We do retail and ecommerce through the website, so we needed those functions to be robust. 

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their work.

Not only did he create Realize Internet Marketing make our website, they put together the e-commerce portion in addition to assisting us in listing products online.

Their team was very helpful in showing us how to make changes on our own when products go out of stock or new products are added. They have empowered us to manage the content and keeps all the information up to date and relevant.

What was your process for selecting Realize Internet Marketing with which to work?

We actively sought out six to eight different companies. We interviewed each candidate and asked them about their abilities and requested examples of their work to see if they could meet our needs. Out of all of them, we chose Realize Internet Marketing.

Can you provide a ballpark dollar figure for the size of the work that they’ve done for you?

The project initially took two to three weeks. The cost was around $3,000.

When was the work completed?

The initial project was completed in February or March of 2014.  

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Do you have any statistics or metrics to track improvement from the project?

Our online sales have increased 400 percent from January 2014 to December 2014.

Are you satisfied with their performance?

I’m more than satisfied with Realize Internet Marketing. I can’t say enough good things about their firm. If there are questions or if there’s something that I need his assistance with, they explain the process, and if it’s something simple, they typically take care of it at no charge.

Is there anything unique about Realize Internet Marketing that really makes them stand out, compared to other online marketing companies?

I don’t think there is another company that I have dealt with personally where I know for a fact that I can contact them and get a response as immediate as I do with Realize Internet Marketing. Their customer service is great. Their communication is top notch. I’m also very satisfied with the finished product.

Looking back on the work so far, is there any area that you think they could improve upon or that you might do differently?

I don’t think so. Everything that I wanted to have on the website was done. We made some design modifications to the initial product, but if I had to do it all over again, there’s nothing I would change.
