IronGlove provided development services as a partnered subcontractor to create a blog template, create a blog grid, and integrate the You've Got Leads API into the homepage contact form. The Divi installation was updated, along with WordPress v5 (from v4.9.x) and all related plugins. Sass was integrated into the child theme to speed development time and mild PHP development was implemented to assist with blog templating and API integration. Secondary navigation was fixed and enabled, the contact form was created using Gravity Forms, and integrated with You've Got Leads. A basic single post template was created and styled, and a generic blog grid was set up to conform with the brand guidelines. IronGlove worked directly with Mt. Hood Senior Solutions staff to configure mail servers, create a form that worked with their healthcare leads database, and quality checked before final deployment and delivery.
DONE RIGHT THE FIRST TIME
As a professional developer that focuses on providing services to other agencies, don't ask me to cut corners or put a band-aid on it. There's a right way and a wrong way to reprioritize work and speed up production time that doesn't involve creating problems for clients. If you want my help, we're going to do this ethically, correctly, and to standards.
REALISTIC PROJECT PLANNING
When I work with your agency, expect me to be a good listener, to be confident in what I do, and to never sugarcoat things for you. If something needs to be said for the sake of your reputation and the client's project, then expect to hear it from me first. We'll work together to come up with a realistic, professional plan for your clients that won't cause them pain.
RIGHT TOOL FOR THE RIGHT JOB
I don't believe in slamming out cheap templates, using stock settings, or working fast and cheap. It's not only your harming your business image as an agency, but it will destroy my reputation as a professional developer. While I'm more than happy to help you, don't ask me to do things that should be found on cheap offshore contractor sites.
My goal is to work in unison with your agency as a contracted senior member of your team to augment the skills and expertise you don't have in-house. We'll need to work closely together and learn to trust one another. So expect a tight working relationship with professional pushback, and you'll need to be ready to grow from day one to be successful.
