Does Gizmoz want my business?

After a very interesting morning at our agency, I think I’ve got an answer to help cure this ailing economy of ours. Online companies, you’d better be listening.

We came up with a fun concept for a client of ours, where people would be able to personalize some video content and send it to friends of theirs. Trouble is, we don’t create that kind of software at our shop. So, we need to partner with an agency that does.

With the client desperate to get an estimate from us, we searched and found several companies that do this kind of work. Here’s where the issue is: Only one of them had a phone number to contact them. Everyone else had an email form. I should mention that after 24 hours, still no one has responded to our emails.

So, here we sit, with a sold idea and big job begging to be serviced, but no one to service it for us. In fact, we’re so keen to get this job done that we spent an hour trying to find phone numbers (I’m looking in your direction, Gizmoz).

So, if you’re an executive at Gizmoz, Jibjab faceinhole.com or evb.com, I have a suggestion that just might make your quarter – add a phone number to your site.

I am going to hand out props to Big Stage, who does amazing video rendering work and also happens to have a phone number on their site.

  1. Hey Rodger – point taken šŸ™‚
    Most of the Gizmoz team sits outside of the US, so a phone number is actually more of a hindrance than a service. Weird thing is, we never got a request from you via the online form – so please contact us again.

    We’ve done a number of similar campaigns, so we’d be glad to hear from you.

  2. Hi Kate, thanks for following up. We did have someone from Gizmoz contact us after a few days from our online request. We ended up going with http://www.faceinhole.com due to the short timeline.

  3. There is obviously a lot to know about this. There are some good points here.

    I’m Out! šŸ™‚
