What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
I’ve been getting a lot of feedback through the website here for the campaign. I attribute that to the Facebook ads that I’d never used before. Volunteers get back to us through the contact form or people contact me to find out my views on things.
My other business is more B2B [business-to-business], but people enjoy using that site and it’s user-friendly to them. I am getting feedback and traffic through it. When I compare my web design to others, I feel like mine is better. It’s got a modern, clean, professional look; it was well done.
I was happy with the quality of his work and the price was reasonable. Red Spot is the only firm I’ve used. I’ve moved cities but I always stay with him; that’s how I am. If a company does a good job, I stick with them.
He’s very prompt. If I have a question or a change, he gets back so fast. He makes it easy. He did a good job on my first website, so I always stayed with him. It’s fortunate that he was my first pick.
How did Red Spot Design perform from a project management standpoint?
He’s done great. I’m a firm believer that he can do whatever I ask him to do, whether it’s through Facebook, Google AdWords, or what have you. He helped steer me in the right direction there. Some of it just comes down to budget, but as far as what I need, he’s able to do it. I’m really happy with what he’s done on his side of things.
He’s happy to talk over the phone. He answers your questions, including simple things like how to embed a video on my website. He will relate to you however you want to communicate, and he’s quick in getting back to you by email. I like to know what the ins and outs are so I can try to make the best decisions I can, and he’s accommodating of that.
What did you find most impressive about them?
The quality of work and how fast he gets back to me are impressive to me. I know there’s platforms where I can go in and I can make my own website changes. I didn’t want to get into that. There’s times where I’ll have a change, and he gets back to me same day. Often I’ll notice that the change was already made on my website within an hour.
It also really impresses me that he never complains. With some people I work with, they start out working hard wanting to win your business, and over time they stop answering your emails or stop getting back to you as fast. I’ve been working with David for 5 years, and I’m impressed with how fast he still gets back to me. Sometimes I feel bad because I’m always coming to him and asking for things, but there’s never a long sigh. He’s always ready to help.
His responsiveness and quality of work go hand in hand. He gives attention to detail and is very responsive.
Are there any areas they could improve?
Not really. He knows what he’s doing.
Do you have any advice for potential clients?
Don’t be afraid to let him know you don’t know what you’re doing. It’s not like he belittles you or anything. I’m sure I have so many dumb questions because I’m not a tech guy at all. It’s never feels like he’s rolling his eyes at you or anything like that. If I was a new guy working with David, I would just be honest. I’d tell him I don’t know this or I’m super busy and don’t have time for this. Be honest with what you’re looking for, and he’ll work it out.
