I just had a prospective client, whom I sent a quote last week, write me and tell me they had decided to go with another vendor.
No problem with that at all, and I really appreciate it when people actually take the time to let me know one way or the other. But ‘vendor?’ That made me pause…
I’ve never thought of myself as a ‘vendor.’ My goal is to be a partner, a resource, a trusted problem-solver for the clients I work with. The people I work best with tell me they view me that way and see great value in the relationship, because I help them do better business. Or business better. However you want to put that.
‘Vendor’ implies a situation where you fork over some cash and get a website. End of story. And I know there are web designers who operate like that (I’ve personally run into them). But Red Kite’s not one of those studios.
If you’re looking for a vendor to make your next website, don’t bother with me; that’s not the kind of relationship I want with clients. If you want a professional you can trust to give you high-quality product, sound advice, and be here when you need help with your site, then get in touch. Red Kite may be a great fit for your company.
