Feedback summary: 

Sunlight Media's quick turnaround time and responsiveness throughout the partnership were highlighted as strengths.

I’ve used them for several website developments and application. Federal Credit Group hired Sunlight Media to customize a form submission and add a method of payment. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

To fix the form submission, they created a button that takes you to a checkout page. Sunlight Media made our website mobile friendly, added a form submission box that allows the user to submit their data and proceed to a checkout cart at the same time. 

They developed a mobile application called which is a six-figure project that you can post classified ads on. They did a good job on it. I can’t go into detail because it’s a classified site. It was developed on HTML5 and PHP. They had social integrations where you could sign in through Facebook and Google.

How did you come to work with Sunlight Media?

I found them on Google years ago.

How much have you invested with Sunlight Media?

Over the course of our relationship, I’ve spent approximately $100,000 with them.

Sunlight Media is very fast and responsive when handling updates and changes. I'm more than pleased with the service provided all around. They are a great team to work with. I have worked with Sunlight Media on some other projects and will continue the relationship. They’re excellent - they’re timely and responsive.

What did you find most impressive about Sunlight Media?

Their mobile application development department is on point. They’ve got good graphic designs and good ideas.

No, they do a great job.

Feedback summary: 

Thanks to Sunlight Media's design, site traffic, visits, and time on site have been steadily increasing sinch launch. Sunlight Media was very responsive and completed the project three months after submitting their proposal.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

I run an immigration and personal injury law practice in Los Angeles.

What is your position?

I'm an attorney.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Sunlight Media?

The old design [of my website] was outdated. It wasn't mobile-friendly, so I needed to start from scratch, and that's what we did. We did incorporate some of the elements from the old site, but it's a totally new look.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

I gave Sunlight Media a basic outline of what I wanted. I had somebody do a Photoshop rendition of my basic idea with elements in it, but it needed a lot of finishing work. It was just a basic outline with some of the elements that were to be included in the final. It just needed a lot of work to make it right. That's what Sunlight did for me.

How did you come to work with Sunlight Media?

I found Sunlight on Yelp – of all places. Their great reviews on it drew my attention.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

It cost less than $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

It's completed.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

I noticed some increase in traffic on the site that Sunlight Media developed. We're talking about a month and a half, maybe almost two months since it went up. They didn't promise me anything specific, and I don't expect a big jolt. I expected the traffic to build up in time as people see it and look at it, and  – hopefully – get ranked a little higher in Google as we go along.

This didn't happen with the old website. Many of the visitors linger on the website for a long time, meaning they find something interesting and worth their time. I can get a good idea of what's going on with the website through Google Analytics. I do get visits, the time spent, pages viewed, and what kind of pages they see and just in these two months, I've seen what I had not seen before where some visitors will linger for a good hour, hour and a half, 30 minutes, or 40 minutes. It's something that didn't happen before with the previous website.

I'm going to attribute that, first of all, to the look of the site. People look at the window, and they like what they see, so they go inside and shop. They like the content. I provided the content but, nevertheless, if I cannot get you into the store, you're not going to see what's in it. I've seen that.

How did Sunlight Media perform from a project management standpoint?

Sunlight Media was very responsive. I'm the one that delayed the process or the project because, as I said, I would change my mind now and again. They were on top of it trying to get those changes out that I wanted so that we could get this thing up and running. I knew that they wanted a short turnaround. That's what people expect. That way it worked out for me because, again, of the changes that I would make. I had no complaints about the time that it took. It took three months from the time that we first submitted a first draft. They submitted some proposals, and we worked from there and took off. It was about a three months from the time they started working on the project to the time it was finished. To me, that was reasonable given all the work that I gave them.

Is there anything Sunlight Media could have improved or done differently?

Nothing major.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Sunlight Media demonstrated excellent ability in understanding and fulfilling requests without the need for constant communication. The agency excelled in the areas of flexibility, responsiveness, and skill. Sunlight Media delivered quality work on time and on budget.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your firm.

We are a law firm that has been in business for five years in the Los Angeles area. We have 13 employees with many staff members working for large firms in the past. We are a boutique firm of lawyers with big-firm history and experience, but more friendly hourly rates, a more efficient business model with a commitment to environmental sustainability and social impact.

What is your role and responsibilities?

I am the managing partner, so the website and face of the firm is very important to me. I am also responsible for growing the business, performing administrative tasks, and providing legal services.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was your goal for the work with Sunlight Media?

We needed to clean out hacker code from our website. We also needed to improve the sites' functionality and update content. The work affected the entire firm and had an immediate and positive impact.

SOLUTION

Please describe their work in more detail.

They had to make our website more secure by focusing on security features and keeping out hackers. We needed people to come to our website and navigate it quickly while getting necessary information after a few clicks.

Most of the work was Web development and troubleshooting. Their team helped us update content and gave design advice. The site is now more visually appealing and functional.

What was your process for selecting Sunlight Media?

We received a personal referral from someone else in the legal industry. They came highly recommended, so we decided to hire Sunlight. They have very competitive pricing, are very responsive, and have strong technical skill. It was an obvious choice to hire them after speaking with their management once.

Can you provide a sense of the size of the initiative with a general cost range?

That's confidential.

When was the project completed?

I cannot remember exactly. A few months ago. It was completed in only a few days, it was extremely fast turnaround. Subsequent tasks have also been carried out by Sunlight Media very quickly and accurately. We appreciate not having to engage in tons of back and forth with Sunlight Media. We explain the task, they get it, and then they get it done well.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What were the results of the project?

They performed very well. They were responsive, on time and on budget. We have no complaints. The project was successful, and Sunlight Media was very flexible.

When working with Sunlight Media, what is unique or special about them compared to other IT firms?

Sunlight Media is much more responsive than our previous Web developer and has a broader set of skills and is more cost effective.

Looking back on the project, is there anything that you think they could improve upon or something that you might do differently?

No.

Sunlight Media has done half a dozen or more projects for me, from SEO to WordPress customization. As a small company, often if business comes in beyond the ability of my regular staff, I'll call someone like Sunlight Media. During these times, I was able to treat them as a fire-and-forget missile. I tell them what they need to do, and they do it. I check it, the client checks it, and everybody's happy. Easy.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their work.

That is the work that they do. We have ongoing SEO customers together right now, with monthly projects. I often call him with some tricky WordPress problems.

What was your process for selecting Sunlight Media to work with?

I found them on Craigslist, and then made a few phone calls. Generally, in these cases, I start the vendor with small modules or easy-to-define pieces of business. I would never give a brand new contractor any kind of substantial job. It largely consisted of small projects like fixing a form and such. I want to see the quality of the result, how fast the turnaround is, and the communication. I’ve been doing IT for more than 30 years, and I can separate the wheat from the chaff easily. We started with smaller projects and built up to bigger projects, where he took a bigger project off my hands, and I just check his work.

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

We've done one- or two-hour jobs up to 100 hours or more.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They all worked. That’s why they still work for me. They have been everything that I’ve asked for and have delivered everything that they have promised.

Is there anything unique about them that really makes them stand out, compared to other companies?

Sunlight Media has been good and responsive. They are a good, solid company.

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

No.
