The Review
Feedback summary: 

Internal stakeholders are pleased with how the professionalism and quality of the website, as well as its high search rankings. studio1c has created a pattern of on-time or ahead-of-schedule deliveries. Their ability to work independently and deliver correctly the first time stands out.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the general manager of Ridge Café. We’re a small, locally-owned restaurant and café.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with studio1c?

Our location is not ideal, and we needed more visibility, a stronger market presence, and a social media presence. We also needed a functional website. It was a lot of marketing and design.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We originally hired them to build our website, and then we transitioned them into doing management of our Facebook page. Now, they’re part of our team to help with marketing ideas and implementing our ideas. They offer their expertise to get the word out about Ridge Café.

They basically built our website from scratch, developed our logo, implemented online ordering. They’ve also done photography of our food and put the pictures on our website. They also put our menu online.

They now handle our Facebook, LinkedIn, and Snapchat accounts. I’m not too familiar with those platforms, though. They do daily posts, and, during the busiest time of year when we don’t need to spend a lot on advertising, they do weekly posts. Right now, they’re ramping up for us.

What is the team composition?

Michelle (Website Designer, studio1c) is our main point of contact, and there are 2–3 others I have contact with.

How did you come to work with studio1c?

I found them on Google.

How much have you invested with them?

We budget $25,000–$50,000 a year for them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together since February 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Our sales are only down 35–40% now while similar businesses around us are down 80%. We went from people not knowing where we were to people making a concerted effort to get to us. The impact on our business has been fantastic.

The site itself is very healthy. They send me an SEO report every month, and it just keeps getting better as they continuously improve the site. Our rankings are fantastic.

How did studio1c perform from a project management standpoint?

On-time is an understatement. I’ve had a hard time getting other people to respond in weeks, but studio1c gets back to me within the hour, if not right away. They constantly exceed their deadlines. If I give them one week, I often hear back in 2­–3 days. They’re professional and timely.

We communicate over Zoom and email, and we have face-to-face meetings when we announce things. They sit in on our bigger, all-hands meetings as well.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They bring expertise in social media and marketing to the restaurant that I don’t have. Additionally, their professionalism stands out. They make us look great. We’re a small mom-and-pop restaurant, but the site makes us look glamorous. They step everything up.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Not that I can think of. We’re all learning together, figuring out how to navigate this, but I honestly have no complaints whatsoever.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Let them do what they do best. Trust them to market your place.
