GDC is an e-commerce agency that helps clients under the guidelines of "treatment before diagnosis is malpractice". They take the time to really get to know their clients' needs and goals to help form an e-commerce strategy that will catapult their business forward. Navigating the online marketplace world can be overwhelming. GDC helps clients who want to start selling a new product, expand their brick and mortar business online, or magnify their online reach by expanding to new marketplaces.

What Makes Us Different

GDC thinks that it's incredibly important to recognize that no two companies are the same - regardless of how similar they may be.  Because of this, we take the time to work with each client to make sure that we fully understand their needs and goals. Years ago, the owner of GDC was taught that "treatment without diagnosis is malpractice" - and he's carried that mentality into work with him every day.  In fact, it's a requirement that all of GDC's employees operate under the same standard.  You ...

What did you like best?

They were very nice. They were able to build the site very well. Got a lot of hits after it was constructed. They new what I wanted and understood how to make it work for us. Very professional management. Competitive pricing. Worked fast. Got it done in time.

What did you like least?

Nothing negative. Smaller organization. So they were more nimble and able to adjust quickly when new ideas came up.

Describe your overall experience.

What did you like best?

Extremely Knowledgable in there area of work, accessability is overall better that others in market sector .

What did you like least?

Lack of emphasizing various aspects and importance of work specifics, especially important to the uninformed. Again a factor of the ignoranance of customers; i.e. me, a clear expectation of deliverables. This is not a negative for GDC, this is an industry wide; from our experience, business model.

Describe your overall experience.

We highly recommend them; we are aleady considering two other projects. While we did not utilize there marketing services they, leveraged there knowledge to help our other agency. In our opinion GDC exceeded there work agreements to help offset our ignorance, and meet the deliverables we whee expeting. GDC went as far as supporting additional work; marketing, that was probably out of the scope of work. AGAIN I WOULD HIGHLY and VIGOROUSLY RECOMMEND THEM

What did you like best?

Working with Gapstow, I appreciate the urgency they felt working for my business and how quickly they worked to resolve any issue that arose.

What did you like least?

I think the only thing negative I would say is the fact that Shawn's business is not local, but with today's technology and Shawn's knowledge of it, it's really not necessary.

Describe your overall experience.

Working with Shawn was a professional experience - everytime. He made me feel like he was working right there in my office with me - despite working remotely.
