This is not a traditional testimonial in the fact that I could type an essay about how happy I am, and how truly amazing this experience has been for all of us, and we plan to use them for each and every idea we have from this point moving forward. Hostrings is a true asset to any business. Sometimes I feel like an employee of theirs when showing off our companies website! I spend the majority of the conversation explaining how this all came about and how we still sit in awe at the fact that we found someone who could actually create something of this quality within our budget!
I might possibly be the happiest client you will ever meet.
When a company can get a person with my "I'm perfect" mentality to write a testimonial please believe me in saying that in a world full of website companies, they greatly outrank the competition.
I want to share a little bit about my journey finding Hostrings. I have used multiple website companies in the past, and not to discredit anyone, but Hostrings was the first company to have someone answer the phone who was friendly, and more important a genuine people person. After calling many companies for many hours and getting many answering machines I tried Hostrings and Drew picked up the phone. When you contact their company, they answer the phone, and if they do not answer you WILL hear from them within a short time period. After my initial conversation with Drew, our project coordinator, they followed up with a near immediate response, which I found amazing because many other companies told me it would take much more time.
Now to be fair to everyone I will admit that I can be quite a pain to work with and I have a very strong opinion. I am one of those people who knows the very best way to do absolutely everything. After the initial site sample came back, I knew I had found the right company. I simply gave up thinking, I knew better because each and every time I needed something, I explained it and they created something I could not have even dreamed of!
I was the guy who submitted a design of exactly what I "thought" I wanted, and they came back with something that I would consider mind-boggling! I know I may seem to stress the point of how happy I am, but I can't express the importance of a professional website. I want to offer that bit of advice to all people looking to design one, do not cut your corners on this avenue of your business, it is the face of your company, and with that being said Hostrings is the best face lift you can receive.
I will be the first to admit that no company is perfect, which is the best feature I can mention about Hostrings, they are not perfect, yet they listened to each and every detail about what I knew I wanted, and things that I thought I may like but was not sure. After explaining everything to Drew, and watching their teamwork, it gave our company a new life. It really has inspired us and opened so many doors within our industry. Each one of our customers who visit our site are simply awestruck at the level of detail in each page, yet the user friendly atmosphere it portrays! I invite each and everyone of you to visit our page, and you can contact our office directly and each person in our office can tell you about our phenomenal experience with Hostrings.
After viewing the completed site, or at least the demo version, the excitement was only getting started. I must share with you my previous experience with having a website developed by "a friend" or "a friend of a friend" and then once the site is up you can make zero updates on your own, you have no say in anything about the content updating, etc. But with Hostrings's fantastic and user-friendly content management system, it allows you to be in control of your site.
For those of you who visit our site, I want to suggest checking our the calendar page that is located under "search event by date" and just imagine us coming to them with an idea of managing all of this content with absolutely no idea how. They created this entire thing from thin air with nothing but a few pointers from us as to what we wanted.
If I knew someone who was making a website I would not suggest anywhere but Hostrings. They give you the very best, and they help turn your ideas into a customer friendly atmosphere, as well as suggest ways to better utilize your existing products and services. Their design has improved our business so much that I could never even think of using another company for my web design. I truly felt by the end of our first project that I had actually became friends with our coordinator and would recommend my own mother to use Hostrings! :)
