What was the scope of their involvement?
We were aiming to build a website that’s easy to update. They built it and included an admin panel with a set of instructions on how to use it. We also wanted a clean design, for which we gave them our corporate catalogs with the color scheme to follow. With this, they handled all design aspects as well.
Reklam5’s team was very helpful with the process. We have the option of changing the site into an e-commerce one, but at the moment, it’s basically a corporate website featuring our full product range.
Right now, we’re in the process of discussing SEO [search engine optimization]. They have a social media team which will be working with us on Instagram, Twitter, and Facebook for our three brands—Banat, a brand for manicure and pedicure products called B-Cure, and a condom brand.
What is the team dynamic?
They worked with our IT department for the most part. I initially worked with two of their co-founders, who explained the pricing and what they would be doing. After that, we worked with two developers and two marketing specialists. Throughout the project, we’ve worked with a total of six people on a day-to-day basis.
The code was written in two weeks, and after the layout was done, we had to work one-on-one with the product range listed on it. We either did it face-to-face or through the Excel files they sent us. Overall, it was a smooth process.
How did you come to work with Reklam5?
I found an aquarium website and one about watches, both which Reklam5 had done. We looked at four or five other developers but they weren’t a good fit in terms of pricing and business approach. With Reklam5, we clicked right at the start and they were lenient in terms of pricing as well.
How much have you invested with them?
The total cost was between $30,000–$40,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working with Reklam5 in May or June 2016. We’re in the process of finishing details and I believe Reklam5 will give us training on how to use the admin panel in one or two weeks from now.
We’re not 100% sure if we will choose Reklam5 for SEO and social media, but they’re one of our top three options at the moment.
