BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of Gear re-Store. We provide technical services to the outerwear industry for things like GORE-TEX® jackets and technical outerwear.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Viral in Nature?

We previously had a website that was horrible, so we needed an upgrade in that area. I don’t know too much about the technical side of things, so that’s why I hire people who do.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Viral in Nature prefers to use Joomla as a platform. A lot of people use WordPress, which is something fairly easy for the average person to figure out themselves, but if you want a website that’s a little bit more stable and professional looking, programming-type people prefer to use Joomla.

How did you come to work with Viral in Nature?

I met the owner of Viral in Nature, Shawn, at a networking event and started building a relationship over time. He’s very passionate about business, social media, and other causes that I empathize with. I’ve worked with other agencies to build websites before, but I was not very happy with the outcome. I decided to give Shawn a try based on our developing relationship.

How much have you invested with Viral in Nature?

We have invested $4,500.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in September 2016, and it was ready to go early November 2016. I’ve done some subsequent work with them since the website was complete. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

Some of our potential customers are pretty big players—half a billion dollar companies. I knew that when we were setting up meetings to visit with these companies, they were going to do their due diligence and look at our website before they considered doing business with us. I knew it was unprofessional to take them to our old website. I now have a feeling of comfort that when they go to our website, I’m not going to be embarrassed. It’s hard to measure or know for sure if any particular business contracts that we’ve landed are a result of our website, but it’s all part of a process. I just didn’t want our website to be a stopping point in that process.

How did Viral in Nature perform from a project management standpoint?

I was quite satisfied and happy with the way the project rolled out. If anything was held up at any point, it was more likely because I wasn’t quick enough in getting Viral in Nature the information they needed.

What did you most impressive about Viral in Nature?

Anyone can set up a website and pick an off-the-shelf template. Shawn’s background is in print media, so he has a real flair for design and really puts thought into it. I’ve seen some of the brochures and websites that he has designed. He’s a two-for-one deal—you get a web designer and a graphic artist. That really stood out.

Are there any areas Viral in Nature could improve?

I can’t think of any. I’m happy with the way it went.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

We operate a bartering platform for businesses.

What is your position?

I am the founder.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Viral in Nature?

We worked on two projects with them: web design and social media management. For our website, we wanted something fresh and new in terms of rebranding the site. With social media management, we wanted to engage current followers and prospects while increasing educational awareness and attract new customers to our service.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

They did the front-end design work for the website. Maybe some back-end coding, but just basic work there. It was a bit of a combo of both with a focus on the front-end development. For social media management, they manage and engage our networks with posting a strategic management.

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

Social Media management is $1,250 per month. The web design was $2,000 or $2,500.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together about two years ago. It is ongoing. They continue to maintain the website. With our social media, they continue to manage that monthly. We are quite happy working with them.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

How did Viral in Nature do from a project management standpoint?

On a 1-10 scale, I'd definitely give them a 10 for project management. They were really on top of their game. Whenever I had a question, they would get an answer back to me quickly. Working with them is great.

Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

The website, aesthetically, is great. Members within our own community and networks like the website. It's tough to get specific numbers on that outside of SEO [search engine optimization], which we sourced to a difference company.

In social media marketing, from when they started until now, they've increased our likes maybe to an additional 100. It's not substantial but it is steady. It's more a fact of keeping consistency with our message and continuing to put information out there.

What distinguishes Viral in Nature from other providers?

I really appreciate the high level of customer service. Viral in Nature is always prompt to get back to you on any issue. They're willing to hear and listen to what you have to say, such as what information needs to get pushed out. They'll also suggest some good ideas. I guess it's their creativity and strategic posting of content.
