Web Redesign & Strategy for Architecture Firm

RNO1 designed and updated an existing Squarespace website for an architecture design firm. The website provided buying information for users, and RNO1 helped with establishing a stronger online presence. I liked the look and feel of the work ... but most importantly, I liked the people with whom I was connected. The redesigned website has received plenty of positive feedback from users, as well as from people within the client’s design network. RNO1 provided reassurance by establishing a solid relationship with the client before the work began, which laid the foundation for a successful partnership. We didn't do a lot of recasting of traffic tools, but we have received a lot of positive feedback from people in our network. If I'm being honest, I think the project was a little slow. But, I understand the creative process, and in the end, I was satisfied with how we brought everything together. My business is very relationship-based, and that’s how I engaged with this process. The personalities behind this effort were as important to me as anything else. I liked the look and feel of the work, and I liked the presentation of the company, but most importantly, I liked the people with whom I was connected. That really connected the dots for me. I was not on a campaign to do a lot of interviewing. I hire people who I know can perform. One point of critique for RNO1 may be their over-reliance on online management coordination and project management tools instead of just picking up the phone to talk to somebody. I think that was a little bit lacking.

PPC for Pet Boarding Service

There was a lot of open communication and constant feedback. RNO1 constantly offered recommendations on best practices. Their communication stood out. I was doing a search of providers outside of Florida. When I stumbled across them in California, they were voted one of the top 10 digital agencies out there. That piqued my interest. I read on their website about what they do and they seemed very knowledgeable in that space. Since that space is constantly changing, having a partner who gets that is important to me. We saw results on the new customer acquisition side, and that was our goal. There was an uptick of 30% to 40% for Internet leads coming locations that were not driving those before. RNO1 did very well in terms of project management. There was a lot of open communication and constant feedback. They gave us recommendations and we gave them ours. We found that RNO1 was flexible and accommodating to our recommendations. They are on the West Coast and we are on the East Coast, so I was curious about how that was going to work out. They came across as very personable. Their expertise and recommendations have been great.

Site Redevelopment for Independent Record Label

The client hired RNO1 to update their website on a Squarespace-based platform which included work on e-commerce functionality and a Spotify playback function. We found RNO1 to be extremely responsive and exceptional at communicating. They were very creative, and my whole team was very happy with their work. RNO1’s work led to a smoothly running site. The client praised the agency’s detailed tutorial videos and straightforward approach to project management. There were no issues during the partnership and RNO1 is recommended to others. The site went live in the beginning of February 2016. We have RNO1 on retainer for maintenance, but haven't had to use them. The site has been running so smoothly, and the videos that they provide are so detailed that I don't foresee them having to step in any time soon. We used Basecamp for our management and everything was simple and straightforward. I think there was only one designer assigned to the project, and we communicated to him through the project manager. Everything was coordinated well. I found the tutorial videos that RNO1 sent to us to be very helpful, and I appreciate that they include them in their package. We had gone through a similar design process with other website developers before, but had not been happy. We found RNO1 to be extremely responsive and exceptional at communicating. They were very creative, and my whole team was very happy with their work.
