We received this email from a satisfied out-of-state client today! We’re lucky to work with lots of bright professionals who are great at what they do but just need some technical help along the way. Claire is a great example of this, you can find her at Lessons4Now and here on Facebook. She was on a budget and had a list of things she wanted accomplished. This can sometimes be overwhelming but we were willing to work with her in phases to get her needs met. This is what she had to say about working with us!
Dear Will: I posted this in the TpT forum today. Hopefully it will bring you some well-deserved, additional business.
Looking for help with your blog or search engine optimization…? I moved to self-hosting my blog website so that I could add some widgets and change some formatting. But then I got stuck. I didn’t have the time to climb the steep learning curve needed to make the changes to my website that I wanted. I tried working with a few local folks, but none of them worked out. Then I posted in the forum asking for suggestions. After that, I put feelers out to about five companies and/or individuals. Only two responded. I followed up with the person who seemed most knowledgeable and enthusiastic about taking on the project– Will at Bit Social Media (http://bitsocialmedia.com/).
He had a lot of helpful, specific suggestions. His prices were affordable– approximately $50 an hour. And, he was willing to do a few hours at a time to fit my budget. I started with five hours. Will installed the widgets I wanted, helped me align my online presence, and installed some code so I could get a specific set of analytics I wanted. He then integrated my Pinterest and Facebook pages. There is more to do. Will and I agree that my website needs some major renovations. However, I’m not ready to choose a new template and/or make design changes until this summer when I have more time. I plan to continue to work with Will as my budget and time permit. Since Will completed the work described above, my sales have gone up approximately 21%.
While that level of increase won’t replace my day job, it’s still a significant jump. I’m thrilled! I’m sharing this because it took me several months to find a knowledgeable technology person who: 1) could communicate clearly, 2) expressed genuine interest in my project, 3) was upfront about costs, and 4) was affordable. I have no personal or financial interest in Bit Social Media. I just figured my experience might save someone else a whole lot of time.
Thanks again for everything you’ve done, so far!
