Experience Before Using Adepto Digitals’ Services

How did you solve the problem before hiring Andreas?

We do have an in-house designer who is familiar with our website backend, however, they are currently away from the business. Doing all the design work ourselves would have been a strain on resources, so we knew we’d need to replace our designer temporarily when it came to the bigger design jobs.

Summarize three points of frustration you faced.

  1. Lack of in-house knowledge surrounding the intricacies of HubSpot design
  2. Finding a designer who had a high-quality score through Upwork
  3. Finding a designer who had experience with the HubSpot system

What was the big a-ha moment when you decided you needed to hire someone to solve the problem?

Our current in-house designer, as I mentioned above, is actually away from the business at the moment, so we needed someone that could seamlessly slot into our HubSpot system; someone who knew their way around and could fill that designer skill gap we were missing.

What were the top reasons you selected Andreas?

We selected Andreas for the first job based on the fact that he had all the HubSpot design qualifications we wanted from our designer. It was a bonus that Andreas had other HubSpot qualifications, such as the Inbound Marketing Certification, as this made us think he would be able to clearly understand our overall aims when drawing users into the site – and we were right!

Experience Using Adepto Digitals’ Services

How easy or difficult was it to get started with Andreas?

It was a really straightforward and relatively quick to get started with Andreas. Even though we had stipulated milestones for the project, Andreas has always delivered our project ahead of each milestone.

How have Andreas helped you to overcome the challenges you had before?

Andreas has definitely helped bring our design ideas to life. Our site pages look so much more modern and they’re easier to navigate.

How is Andreas different from other freelancers you’ve worked with?

Andreas is different from other freelancers because he didn’t need too much communication from us, and as we’re busy, that was a perfect fit for us. We just left him to it and he delivered the results pretty much exactly as we’d asked for it.

Tell me about the most positive experience you’ve had with Andreas.

We have since worked with Andreas again on another project, and we have plenty more design projects to discuss in the New Year – if he’s not too busy to fit us in that is! It’s refreshing to work with someone who brings back their own ideas into how a design will best fit with your site which has given us a new perspective on our site design.
