In the seven years we’ve been in business, I think we’ve updated our website as many times (if not more). Our latest incarnation is now live, and we’re loving it. We knew we wanted something that would be simple, clean, easy to navigate, sophisticated, easy to update, and reflected our new branding well. We also needed it fast to coincide with the launching of our new book. Not too much to ask for, right?. 🙂 For our amazing results, we turned to the web design team at Spilled Milk Designs.
SMD specializes in designing for the ShowIt Sites platform: an easy to use, DIY Flash web program that allows you to make amazing, custom websites. We contacted Nick at SMD on a Tuesday with our request, and within a couple of days they had a preview up for us to see. Granted, we had some pre-design work done by our logo and brand designer, Al Navata of Navata Designs. So Nick and team had a good foundation to start with. (Your website design will go so much faster, with any company, the more prepared you are). It took about another week to make the various tweaks. In the end is a site we’re very proud of, and one we’ll be able to easily update ourselves.
A Lesson in Customer Service
Working with Nick and his team was a terrific experience. They were responsive, patient, and always did something extra to surprise us. At the end of the process, they even provided a short video tutorial on how to specifically update our site. How cool is that?! All around it was a great lesson for me in providing great customer service. I want to make my clients feel as great about working with Dare Dreamer as we were working with SMD. (Ironically, the company that designed our old Cinematic Studios logo and branding also had the initials SMD).
If you like SMD’s work and you decide to hire them, use the coupon code SMD DDM to get $250 off your custom build. (FULL DISCLOSURE: we get $50 for everyone who hires them with this code, so everybody wins! But, we wouldn’t refer them if we didn’t believe in their abilities and service.)
