We came to PrairieWeb after a conversation I had with a friend (and existing customer of PrairieWeb) who had said his business had increased dramatically since PrairieWeb had optimized his site. It gave us the inspiration to change our approach to marketing by using the web along with the talents of PrairieWeb.
As a result, it has literally changed the way we do business, and we do a lot more business than we ever thought was possible. We have since changed our paradigm from a direct sales approach to eliminating the salesman and focusing primarily on web-based sales. This has enabled us to apply the expertise of our customer service personnel to helping customers directly, rather than supporting sales people.
If we had not made the change when we did, we would have been hard pressed to make it through the recession. But, instead, we have been growing steadily since we teamed up with PWIM!
