Q: Do you create video or small film projects?
A: The short answer is no. Unfortunately, we do not work with video or film production but as your hired solutionist we help to research options and companies that do and will walk through or manage processes for our clients as needed.
Q: Do you only build websites as it seems like much of your portfolio is based around web work?
A: DIMECD is a creative consultancy, our primary clients tend to hire us for website work but we offer many services. Often times once contracted for web work, our clients love our customer service and find that we fulfill a need outside of their projects original scope and keep us on. We'd love to work with you contact us to discuss your project.
Q: Why do you call yourselves "solutionists" when you are just consultants?
A: At DIME we don't think of ourselves as just consultants, sure consulting is at the heart of what we do by definition but we do offer solutions. Ex: A client has a bright idea in the midnight hour, they shoot us an email while it's on their mind. Twenty-four hours later we've emailed them an outline with specifics on best next steps. That's not consulting...that a solution.
Q: Why should I pay for a website, when I can use social media for free?
A: The truth is, a website is a refined combination of your company's essence and service or product list. Within this package you get to fully express who you are as a company as creatively or structured as you'd like. Your not pigeon held to characters, a cookie cutter cutout, and you can connect your social media to broaden your exposure and share more of your company mission. Every company does not need a website right away and for some a plan to attack their specific market can just use social media. Think of a website also as your portfolio pass it includes snippets of everything your way, as you grow or even launch you'll want a website to pull everything together.
Q: DIY or custom website?
A: Custom websites are costly. You should only opt to create a custom website if you are 1) making profits and or have a budget that allows such work, 2) cannot find a solution that works for you in DIY, 3) have a trained person on staff that understands how to further update your website. DIY websites have come a l-o-n-g way, and there are many ways to make them feel and look customized. We do both and can further discuss what's best for your situation during a consultation contact us today!
Q: We had a horrible experience with our last web developer, they charged us $2,000 and never finished the project.
A: Alas, we are sad to say this happens very often. When you turn to someone to build a website you are in need and either don't speak a language that a website designer does or don't have the time to build what it is you desire. Trust us...we know this. The good thing is DIME will never abandon you, if we've taken you on as a client we work hard to complete what we've been contracted to do and have many clients who will attest to that. See our reviews online!
Q: What other "solutions" do you offer?
A: Find a list of our current and ever evolving services here, because we don't like to box ourselves we offer the custom projects option. Contact us today so we can discuss your needs.
Q: Do you offer web design training?
A: Why yes of course! We'd love to come teach you, your group or organization how to build a website, and the training just doesn't stop at websites. Contact us for more information and let's put something together!
Q: What's the total amount of time it takes you to complete a project?
A: We know you need a miracle in under 24 hours and sometimes depending upon the project this may be feasible, but if you're looking for quality don't hold us to your drive thru expectation. There are companies that promise deliveries of this sort and you can find them online, we ahem...are not one of them.
Q: What's a brainstorming session and why would I need to pay for one?
A: A brainstorming session is where you and a DIME solutionist and or a group of trusted individuals sit in think tank fashion to come up with confidential solutions to a problem or business process. Many times we like to sprinkle a little creativity in our sessions, we find it gets the juices flowing. Multiple ideas and strategies come out of synergy because it is a combined group effort attacking a problem or process from a variety of angles. Many fortune 500 companies do this so to roll out new products, updated missions, or creative advertising campaigns. DIME offers this option for the dreamer, the start-up, and any small businesses that may benefit. This session can be held completely online or in the space of your choosing, contact us to get started.

Q: I have social media but my following is poor, what can I do to get more connected to my customers?
