910 West Started Selling Websites Again AND Grew Their Referrals Because of DUDE
“It’s actually built a boosted our business quite a bit because now, um, we’re getting more referrals than ever because it’s something now that we can talk about. Everybody knows we do websites and it’s a really easy thing for people to say, Hey, yeah, let’s talk about that.”
Jasmine Holmes , Founder 910 West.
910 West is a small marketing company located in Gilbert, Arizona. They specialize in doing websites, digital marketing, social media, email, and marketing and boosting digital presence for small businesses.
Jasmine and 910 West were actually moving away from doing websites prior to meeting DUDE. They flat out didn’t want to take on more website projects because they could not find a good partner to help build them.
But then Jasmine heard Chris Martinez, the CEO of DUDE, speak at a conference and she knew that the DUDE team knew all the frustrations that agencies have with outsourcing partners and getting website projects completed.
At the time, Jasmine had someone on staff that was helping with web development-related work, but that was not working out best for anyone. Jasmine didn’t want to replace her team member, but really needed to find a better solution for design and development tasks.
Why did they decide to give DUDE a shot?
Jasmine had worked with overseas teams before and she knew about all the challenges with the time zone and communication and so since DUDE works US-hours it made it really easy for them to communicate with the team right away.
She had pretty much given up hope looking for a white label partner because all of them were overseas, but then DUDE came along and she realized that this could be a great fit for 910 West.
What are some of the successes you’ve had since working with DUDE?
Since working with DUDE, the deliverables that we’re getting back are better than anything they were doing before. On top of that, the in-house team member who was doing design and development is able to focus on what they do best and so everyone is super happy and she’s no longer burned out.
DUDE has such a big team and so they can handle pretty much anything we send there way which is fantastic for us because we aren’t the biggest agency around.
Who you recommend DUDE to?
Working with DUDE has really boosted our business because now we’re doing more websites and we’re getting more referrals. It gives us another talking point with clients and then we turn that into a bigger marketing package to sell them once they know we can do the website first.
If an agency is looking for a great team to help them grow their website side of their agency then DUDE is a great fit.
