“Sales have more than doubled and remain on a steady upward trend despite the difficult economic situation”
I approached Hallway Studios for a website upgrade: my site wasn’t generating sales and the flow through for visitors was confusing without a clear route to purchase. My company: Faceworks offers facial toning exercises online, it is an unusual service and I had tried several agencies that didn’t have the ability to meet the challenge. Most were unable to understand the way the site needed to work, so it was a discouraging search.
Matthew at Hallway Studios had an immediate grasp of what was required, and was able to suggest ideas to enhance the user experience. He was able to offer additional services such as copywriting and animation, which was very useful.
Even with a limited budget, we still were able to add elements to the site to enhance user experience and retain interest. The result is a site that looks good, is easy to navigate and retains interest right through to the point of sale. Sales have more than doubled and remain on a steady upward trend despite the difficult economic situation.
The CMS is easy to operate which means it’s possible to add and edit pages without needing Hallway Studios to step in each time. We have a high proportion of users in the USA and they are VERY quick to flag up a problem: since the site went live there have been no problems at all, just happy people.
“Creativity, professionalism, attention to detail and great customer service”
As a new business in a new country we were keen to have a brand identity which not only reflected who we were but was different to everyone else in our marketplace. We had some ideas but the team at Hallway came up with a brand identity which really excited us. The design of our identity, logo, colour palette etc brought to life what we were trying to achieve.
Our input was really welcomed and we knew that the guys really got the concept of what we were trying to do. The brand identity design done, Hallway then discussed our website requirements with us in some depth. Once we had agreed our requirements Hallway supported us throughout the design, build and test phases through to go live.
We really felt we were in the hands of a team who were equally passionate about our business but had the expertise and creativity to really deliver. Our website is now live and it really is head and shoulders above what is out there in our marketplace. We know it will bring added value to our business, lead to more enquiries and ultimately improve our turnover.
The team were a pleasure to work with. They brought creativity, professionalism, attention to detail and great customer service. Our project was completed on time and on budget and we look forward to working with Hallway on other projects in support of our business as our business progresses.
“The result is Premier League, not 1st Division”
We had been considering a redesign of our existing website for some time, although it still attracted new business and profits were rising, we thought a new more modern CMS system would be beneficial to our operational procedures and a move to a modern dynamic format would highlight our quality and uniqueness. After looking at a few other companies we went with Hallway, as during our short association period (when they took over website hosting from our previous supplier) the underlying thread that came across to me in that period was their professionalism.
Matthew gave an initial costing in the design spec that was adhered to, and the final result was exactly what we had hoped for, when asking business contacts to review the website their feedback was extremely positive, one Director from a leading leisure associate said, "It was the best tourism website he had seen". We had no specific design to hand to them but a number of ideas that were important to our vision, the team at Hallway were extremely helpful, James and Chris in the design and build phase contrived to carry out our thoughts and ideas and add some logical enhancements readily, Matthew had an overview and knowledge that created confidence, important to a customer like ourselves who is not "technically computerate!"
In short we know our business, Hallway know theirs, the result is Premier League not 1st Division.
“Would not hesitate to recommend”
Matthew and his team at Hallway Studios built the website for my business recently. They went to great lengths initially to ensure that they had a full understanding of the brief, kept up a constant dialogue with me during the build and briefed me fully on how to maintain & update the site once it had gone live. I’m very pleased with the clean, professional look of the site, the ease with which it can be navigated and, above all, feedback from visitors. Based on this experience I have since commissioned a second much larger project with Matthew & would not hesitate to recommend him.
“I am very grateful to Hallway Studios for doing such a great job”
I am now the proud owner of my new website http://www.cqzone.co.uk/.
Thank-you to Matthew and the Hallway Studios Team for their guidance and support over the last few months. When dealing with technology-averse people like me, it takes a lot of patience and perseverance to get your message across. Matthew and his team have these qualities in bucket loads, presumably having had similar customers like me before!
James listened to my requests for a simple, clean line finish to the design and Matthew was always on hand to answer my questions. I am very grateful to Hallway Studios for doing such a great job.
“Creative and imaginative solutions to problems”
Hallway Studios is a digital agency with a first class web site design business. The team are highly professional and provide customers with creative and imaginative solutions to problems. Starting up a new business is a challenging time and the friendly advice and expertise of the team was a great benefit to Research Red. The knowledge of the environment they operate in is extensive and there is a responsive team to help when it is needed. I would definitely recommend Hallway Studios to anyone wishing to set up a new website or to re-design an existing one.
“Painless and very efficient”
We chose Hallway Studios based on a strong recommendation - and it turned out to be a great decision. Matthew made the whole process from design brief through to delivery of the live website painless and very efficient from a client perspective. The end result was exactly what we wanted to achieve - a clean, modern, corporate design and a strong brand image. The quality of the work, the back-up service provided, and the lack of any technical jargon, which can be so threatening to a non techie, gave me great comfort throughout the process. I would highly recommend the company to others.
“A stylish design that matches our company's image”
We chose Hallway Studios based on the quality of websites they had already produced and their location, being convenient for us.
Matthew's efficient system but flexible approach worked well for us, allowing us to have all the design input we wanted, leaving Matthew to give helpful advice and make sure the website functions as designed. Despite our inexperience with website design, our site's development went smoothly and quickly and we are really pleased with the stylish design that matches our company's image.
“Professional, reliable and honest”
Matthew has a passion for web design. He is professional, reliable and honest and delivers in a timely manner.
I am thoroughly happy with my website. It captures the essence of what Mums with Tots is about. It is a warm, user friendly and welcoming site. My business and traffic to my site has increased significantly as a result!
Thank you very much for a great site.
“Professional and enthusiastic, but above all, know their subject well”
The team at Hallway are both professional and enthusiastic but above all, know their subject well.
“A highly professional service and delivered the project with great efficiency and style”
We hired Hallway Studios to provide a comprehensive website, as well as creating a company brochure to further develop our corporate image. They offered us a highly professional service and delivered the project with great efficiency and style. The Hallway team took their time to understand our business and how we wanted our web presence to add value to Alterniq, and then offered real insight in to how this could be achieved.
We will continue to use Hallway Studios and will be recommending them to our business contacts.
“I am pleased to see that more than double the number of sales enquiries are now being generated via the site.”
Hallway Studios recently redesigned our website making it much more attractive and user friendly for potential clients. I am pleased to see that more than double the number of sales enquiries are now being generated via the site.
The new website has also proved to be a great sales aid when talking to customers on the phone. The way the site has been designed enables us to easily guide them through options and explain the systems we have to offer.
Hallway Studios were recommended to us and I have no hesitation in passing on this recommendation to others.
