Please describe the scope of their work.
StatenWeb did everything, including Web design and development work. Of course, we spoke to them and told them what we wanted. I provided some of the content in terms of what we were writing in the contest that we were holding, and other aspects of the event.
They did everything from the user interface to the back-end, which was exceptionally helpful. They uploaded all the sponsor information and created everything, from top to bottom, minus the text that I updated. We used a WordPress site.
What was your process for selecting StatenWeb with which to work?
I've known the proprietor for a while through friends. We checked their references and looked at some other sites that they did. We met with StatenWeb several times, and that was all we needed to hire them. We vetted them to make sure they knew what they were doing. We've received some very good reviews from the website.
I was able to help them, because some of our clients asked us who developed the site. We've made some referrals, and I believe they’re working with some of our clients.
When was the work completed?
This site is finished. I don’t have anything for them to work on currently. I will probably go back to them to help me update the existing site, which I kept up and running. Once we approach the 2015 outing, we will use them again to help us update it with some other features that we want on there, considering last year’s success.
Can you provide a ballpark dollar figure for the size of the work that they’ve done for you?
We tweaked the back-end of the site a lot because of the different features that we wanted. We made those updates on a daily basis for about a week to adjust minor features once it was completely done. The project took about two to three weeks for the coding part to conclude, which was my primary concern.
