“I was under impression that I chose the best possible provider regardless of the bid (which was the highest). I expected great quality, attention to detail & professionalism. Summarily, everything was below my expectations. The job seemed sloppy, not fully to my satisfaction, however considering that we were already substantially over budget, I decided just to finalize the job.
Adherence to the schedule: The provider was late two times with his own deadlines.
Attention to details: Poor. The banners contained misspellings and I had to request one particular correction two times. While this was a minimal detail per se, it showed overall poor attention to the project.
Overall quality of the final product: Mediocre. It feels like some elements of the banners were not proportioned well. Some headlines were poorly readable. Headlines contained misspellings. According to the Direct Response principles (which I did not know at the time), the font used should be dark on lighter background, not vice versa. Note that I did not specify Direct Response requirements in the project, however, i do feel these basic rules should have been followed.
Adherence to Cost: poor, exceeded budget by over 60%.
I am not likely to recommend Dave A.”
