What was the scope of their involvement?
Websauce Studio has built a 5-page custom WordPress website for me. The site needed to be clean, current, and easy to navigate, so it would create a sense of confidence and clarity. I bought an entire package from them that included logo creation, narrowing down a tagline, artwork, videos, and a blog. I took the lead on creating the content.
I’m not sure what technologies were used in development because I was more concerned with its functionality and how easy content management would be. Websauce did a great job of making it all come together.
After launching the website, we started working on a project called Civil Savant, at civilsavant.com, which acts as a backdoor into my website, scottyatespr.com. Websauce helped create the page for my concept, mainly focusing on creating a different brand for reaching people. It had original content, including podcasts, YouTube teaser videos, and professional photography that users acting as my ambassadors could share on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter.
They’ve offered web marketing to me, but I can’t afford it at the moment.
What is the team dynamic?
They provided some tutorial videos, and Adam Weil [CEO, Websauce Studio] had a one-on-one meeting with me to show me how to navigate the site and make changes. He remained accessible to me as my primary contact, and we were in touch every 2 weeks. When it got hectic, the communication increased to multiple times per week.
Conveniently, we share space at a co-working facility in downtown Sacramento, so I would physically bump into him and his team. This made it easy to get changes made and to talk about concepts.
InVision was used for sharing design elements.
How did you come to work with Websauce Studio?
I found them through a Google search while looking for web developers in Sacramento. I wanted to keep my money local, and Websauce was one of the three groups I contacted.
How much have you invested with them?
The first package cost $3,500, and this included logo development, tagline, color scheme, fonts, and a 5-page WordPress site. I spent an additional $1,000 in order to have the Civil Savant page built, bringing the total to $5,000.
What is the status of this engagement?
I worked with Websauce from March 2016 to sometime in May 2016. There is currently no active collaboration.
