Boomient Consulting Collaboration with Lichty Guitars
There comes a time for many small businesses when “I can do it all myself” needs to be set aside for “I’ll hire an expert!” This is especially true when it comes to a web presence.
While we have gotten great feedback on our website from the beginning and I was proud to say, “I did it all myself”, with the growth of Lichty Guitars and our desire to stand out among many high quality luthiers, the time finally came to reassess and revamp our website. As I approached the task I quickly realized that I was stepping into territory way beyond my technical expertise. Our original platform was the ever popular WordPress and I knew that I wanted to stay with WordPress in some fashion. I am a huge fan. But the more I researched the more I found myself tangled in codes, plugins, versions and all manner of things I had no business stirring up.
I decided to shift my research in the direction of finding an expert to help me and I struck gold with Jim Magary of Boomient Consulting.
I have worked with Jim every step of the way as we’ve transitioned the old site to the new. I had a pretty good idea of what Jay and I wanted in terms of design and function and Jim was able to execute our vision while at the same time contributing many additions and enhancements.
He brings his incredible knowledge and technical skill to each task and adds a load of design creativity. He listens well, has been teaching me just enough code to empower me to maintain the site moving forward (but not too much to overwhelm) and is committed to every detail being spot on.
I have to image there are plenty of folks like us out there who started with a simple DIY WordPress site and are ready to take the next step up to a more fully functioning site. There is no better partner to engage in the process than Jim Magary!
