Architects, like photographers, rely primarily on first impressions. We did quite a bit of background research seeking a web developer/platform that could provide a clean visual interface for our site and simultaneously afford us the freedom to make changes quickly. On the surface, it is difficult to discern the quality of web developers. At 361, we value collaboration and were looking for a partner with which to co-create our site . After speaking with the liveBooks team, we were thoroughly impressed and made the decision to move forward. From that point on, all the people that we worked with at liveBooks were articulate, responsive and timely, a far cry from what we had previously experienced in the industry.
I have been working with liveBooks since 2008 and have always been very happy with not only the results of the website itself, but with the great customer service I have received. I recently upgraded to the new Scaler site, which I am very excited about. The whole process was extremely smooth. I always received quick responses to my questions and or changes that needed to be made. When it was time to go live, my site was up within an hour! The liveBooks editSuite allows me to quickly and easily update the site, or make changes to its functionality. There’s no need to call or email anyone, and of course no charges to change the content.
As commercial photographer I have always felt that the most important purpose of a website is to be able present my images in front of potential clients in the biggest, simplest and fastest way possible. I have been a liveBooks customer for a long time. They had almost everything I wanted and needed in my website. Now with Scaler liveBooks has it all!
Having a custom designed website allows me stand out. Being able to incorporate my brand makes it possible to create a consistent look and feel throughout all of my promotional pieces. Given that liveBooks is pretty much the standard for professional photographers, being unique is even more important. An advantage to working with the industry standard is that most clients are familiar with their navigation system. You do not want your viewers to take a lot of time figuring out how to view your work, because they won’t.
The editSuite is an invaluable tool because it allows me to make quick additions, changes to the sequence or layout of my portfolios and keep my online work organized. I use the FTP and client access features everyday in my workflow. I have not found a quicker, easier way to make custom pdf presentations for potential clients than in my editSuite.
I would not have a business if I did not have a liveBooks website. Having a beautifully designed, highly functional website is essential in todays market. liveBooks continually improves their offering and I am looking forward to see what they come out with next!
