Introduce your business and what you do there.
I’m the owner of USA Dog Products.
What challenge were you trying to address with Jacob Tyler?
We initially hired them to reconfigure our database, where our customers go to create a profile, upload photos and information about their pets, and receive an ID. We’ve since brought Jacob Tyler on to do work on our website. Our website was a few years old and wasn’t functioning very quickly, so it was getting bad Google PageSpeed reviews.
What was the scope of their involvement?
The first project that Jacob Tyler completed was reconfiguring our database. They fixed some issues we were having with it and added more functionalities. Then, they rebuilt the backend of our WordPress website to speed it up. The project they’re currently working on and are almost done with is a complete redesign and rebrand of the website. We’ve approved all of the design elements, so now they’re going to coding.
