Diary of a Maui Web Designer

Web Design Customer Reviews

No Comments »

We are not the type of website design company that just follows a project through from A to Z. There is a lot of communication, interaction, and a lot of hands-on with the client… and a lot of fun along the way. That, I think, is what really separates us from the rest.

The following is a sampling of reviews from our clients:

DzinePOD is the absolute best. We are a custom manufacturing business with an international customer base that competes in a very high-end market against a number of vastly larger and long-established competitors in both the USA and Europe. We had been working and grew dissatisfied with a big name marketing firm when I ran across DzinePOD’s own website and was impressed with the samples of their work. After flying in and driving up the slope of Haleakala to meet with them, we transferred not just our website work but all of our national and international print advertising and other marketing work to them. After two years, I cannot be happier. Ben & Syl are wonderful people and form a very unique team. Ben’s creative artistry for our print ads and visual imagery has been tremendous, and Syl is an absolute wiz on the website, SEO and social media side of things. Its not just the outstanding quality, however; the extraordinarily fast turn-around has been a sheer joy. Before we had to wait weeks if not months for new ad copy or major website updates to get done. With DzinePOD, if it hasn’t been done in 24 hours I start to worry something has happened to them. The creative collaboration is also excellent. With the other major advertising and marketing firms with which we have dealt, it is always a cumbersome process of having to deal through an account representative with formal presentation boards and no chance of having a real time interaction with the creative talent. With DzinePOD, it has been a great experience of receiving, commenting and getting revised artwork virtually immediately. We have had as many as ten revised versions of national magazine print ads go back and forth in a single evening until we had it perfect. As a smaller company competing against much larger firms with vastly greater resources, it is gratifying that our website and print advertising puts them all to shame. One major national magazine gave us its back cover ahead of a long waiting list of much larger companies, and at the same price as a simple inside ad, because–as they put it–our ad copy better represented the quality of their magazine and that’s what they wanted on their back cover. The other primary journal in our industry bumped our ads up opposite its table of contents in every issue for the same reason. That is a greater testament to the quality of DzinePOD’s work than anything else I can say. Highly recommended.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE DzinePOD…an amazing team of two…husband and wife duo…I like to say you get 2 brains for the price of 1!! Fun and easy to work with. Very creative and talented, and they deliver what you ask for! I presented them with a pretty big challenge, to present 3 very different products that I make into one cohesive and beautiful and elegant website. The site is called http://www.aftersea.com Take a look and see how amazing it is!! I told them I wanted it to be a site that would lead to more business for them…as well as for me …and it has done just that! They listen to what you want, and they deliver it with exceptional quality at a very fair price.

We are about to make a new website that is exclusive to one of my products because that product is growing and expanding and merits its own site. Soon there will be an amazing new http://www.bluebottlelove.com site gracing the world wide web thanks to the talents of Ben and Sylvia.

Well, where do I start?

We came across DzinePOD when looking for a company to help upgrade our website but little did we know how much more this awesome team was going to bring to the table. It’s been well over a year since starting a working relationship with this organization and we don’t see it ending anytime soon. They have not only made our website look much more appealing but have also improved our SEO so we show up on the first page of Google, Yahoo, and Bing searches!

In addition to helping us with our website, they’ve implemented a VERY effective social media campaign which has generated a tremendous amount of interest and business. They monitor all our social media channels and assist in interacting with our customers helping to further integrate our company into the community.

Furthermore they have helped us create a marketing plan which consolidates all our web, social media, newspaper, magazine, and TV marketing efforts into one cohesive and effective endeavor.

They are an extremely effective team and can not recommend them enough!

When we needed a website for our new company, we already knew we’d work with Ben and Sylvia at DzinePOD, because they had designed such a great website for us at http://hikemaui.com. In both cases it has been such a pleasure to work with an accomplished artist who readily takes our ideas and makes beautiful layouts with them and a technical HTML master who creates bullet-proof websites that always keep their form and are very fast-loading. Both Ben and Sylvia are such a joy to work with. They’re always patient and understanding with us. They’re straight-forward in making their proposal and delivering what they promised. We could not be happier with their process and the results. Look at http://www.rappelmaui.com to see what I mean. They’re also affordable compared to all the other high-end web-design companies that we’ve queried.

I searched for several years for the right web master / graphic artist to update Hike Maui’s antiquated, 1994 website. I wanted someone artistic who would work with me as a team. I already had some ideas yet found that some art egos were threatened or insulted if I voiced my suggestions. Sylvia and Ben were a pleasure — very open, very artistic, very technologically attuned (which i am not). Their color schemes are beautifully matched. Their work pace is fast. They stay current with technology. Their layouts are perfect. When I suggested an addition to their designs, they tried my ideas immediately and then together we’d decide what we liked best. I really enjoyed working with them; there was never any artistic push-pull — it was always teamwork. You know your company best, and DzinePOD knows design and technology best.

I am so happy with my DzinePod website that i still look at it all the time. It is perfect for a hiking tour company. It’s green and gorgeous. Just check it out — http://hikemaui.com — you’ll see what i mean.

Really made the process as easy as possible and results very fantastic. DzinePOD helped us out in all aspects in ensuring our site turned out like we wanted it too while making it attractive to search engines, etc. All in all, they made this a painless endeavor.
