SEO Web Design Firm Review

Video Interview: 

I was in dire straits for a new website.  The old website was very stagnant, it was not doing anything.  It was very dark, I needed more interaction on the website.  And I connected with Liezl of SWORD and I told her what I want is that I want people to interact with me on my website.  I need to be discovered.  In the electronic media, if you don’t move forward you die.  I want people not to just click on my website.  I want people to click on it and stay on it.  And go through the pages.  So Liezl would make this page that people would want to stay on it, because the more people stay on it, at the end of the day book a Safari.

What I have given Liezl is maybe 5% OF WHAT THE WEBSITE IS RIGHT NOW, I said to her, “Liezl, this is what I want.”  And Liezl went out on her own and researched it,  and I go back to my website and I read some of the stuff and I go,

Wow! I didn’t even know it was there.”  She really did a good job, she absolutely…

At the end of the day it was the BEST DECISION that I could have made since I started this company in the 1990’s.  I’m 200% SATISFIED at the work that Liezl have done, and I can complement SWORD on their effort to make it worth my while.  All the money that I spent on it is absolutely worth it.

Being in the bush all the time, I have to rely on SWORD and Liezl to make sure that the other end of the Safari Operation has got a good contribution towards our clients and that is the website that does that.

If I imagine a good website, THIS WAY EXCEEDS MY EXPECTATIONS of what my website should have been!

Client Review:  multiple Product Branding Strategy contributions

Video Interview: 

One of the things a company finds it hard to spend money on is marketing.  The reason for that is that most of the times you don’t see a return.

From the day I used SWORD, I could really see a difference in my business.  It was money well-spent (and) time well-spent!

Our website is very professional.  It helps us stand out in a very competitive security market.  The client was looking for a company to partner with and by looking at our website he realized that this is the quality he was looking for, the company he was looking for and the product he was looking for.  The reason for that is because of the USER-FRIENDLY DISPLAY VIDEOS AND 3D PICTURES.

Identity, we found by branding and marketing that SWORD helped us with giving us the margin to work with world-class corporate companies. 

Yes, I’m very excited about the character used in our product range.   It helps us to identify with each and every product.

SWORD helped me to portray an idea by using 3D.  To have an idea and see it in a 3D perspective, it really helps in the development stages of the product.  It saved me a lot of time, a lot of money.

3D ENABLED ME to sell my product before it was in production.

Review on a Shopping Cart Website Design for a Leather Manufacturer

Video Interview: 

“The original website that we had was very insufficient, a lot of changes had to be made, prior to the new website.  Almost as if it became a SHOWCASE compared to the previous website where it was just a bunch of photos.”

“Because SWORD listened, they understood the vision and only then they could start visualizing with us.  We had the need, and they studied it and gave us an indication of what it could cost.  They have fairly well kept to the indications they’ve given, the thing is it was a very WELL-PRICED PRODUCT.”

“A very important function that happened through the work of Sword was the fact that a PROPER CATALOG was developed (online).  Customers, being in Namibië or wherever, were able to focus on a product, really enlarge it and study it and see if it answers to what they needed and then place the order.  Now, all of a sudden we find that there is continuous orders, re-orders, ‘in-time’-ordering; but it all happens from the catalog. “

The result is a 300% increase, the EFFECTIVE SALES went up by 300%.

“One thing that stood out from our involvement with Sword was the fact that OUR BRAND was built.  Through the website and through their involvement, all of a sudden the brand was spreading and people were talking about it, where in the past it was just a couple of nice handbags in the shops, whereas now it is a brand that stands out in the shops, they’re almost now proud to carry the Der Lederhandler name.”

“We were offered PROPER SUPPORT on photos, proper support on updating the website, that was a huge help and a tremendous help.  And I think that also brought about a, almost like a partnership in this whole thing.  It’s not as if it is our website, we paid for it and there we are.  It is a situation of it is both companies growing and moving forward in this website.”
