How One Client Got Roped Into Buying A Shiny Metal Object And Walked Away With Dirt

  I had an interesting call today with a client who hired us to build a new website for their business. As we got acquainted, he mentioned that they had another website out there, with a national website builder company. While I can't say their name, I can say that it rhymes with “Blottle”. Blottle brought this client on 5 months ago and started billing them $600 per month. When I asked the client what they were getting for $600, he couldn't say. I wanted [...]

WordStream Live 2018: An Intern’s Perspective

Yesterday I had the opportunity to join Amanda, Austin, and Nick to WordStream Live 2018 at Google’s Chicago HQ. It was a day packed with presentations, keynote speakers, and a ferocious Twitter contest (congrats to Nick for winning a Google Home). The speakers from WordStream and Google were all really knowledgeable, and their presentations were fun and interactive. As the presentations began, I immediately felt a bit out of my depth. Many of the terms and concepts used were unfamiliar to me, a fresh face [...]

Why You Should Choose a Local Web Design Company
