Please describe the scope of their involvement in greater detail.
They developed the User Interface/User Experience [UI/US] for both sites and worked on magazine and video optimization. They developed the strategy for the video interface, centralized searches, MailChimp integration, Google Cloud Server and Amazon services. Most of the platforms, like Shopify and Magento, were customized for us, which included quite a bit of programming.
Swiss Commerce also worked on Search Engine Optimization [SEO] for us. They assigned a six people team to our projects, who are still working for us.
How did you come to work with Swiss Commerce?
We were introduced to them by two different parties. One was a firm that we were working with, which couldn't deliver the specific programming that we required. The other recommendation came through a middle-school friend who had Swiss Commerce work on his site.
We were initially introduced to Swiss Commerce for some Node.js development. We ended up simply rebuilding our website, since continuing in that language no longer made sense to us.
Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?
ManhoodTV.com initially cost an approximate total of $100,000. We've made changes since the launch, which have added to the cost.
The cost for Everyday Botanicals was $40,000 initially. We've constantly added new things to it, too.
What is the status of this engagement?
We first started our collaboration in 2013. The website was launched at the end of that year. Both projects are still ongoing since we're constantly making changes.
