To hear is to obey

To hear is to obey
Saltmedia believes doing great work requires dialogue and expertise. First we collaborate with clients to understand their work and their needs, and then we apply our talents in solving those needs. It's important to do it in that order. You don't succeed in this field without great client relationships. At Saltmedia we take pains to truly understand our clients. Some consultants forget that their job is first to ask the client what he does and what he desires, and to heed the answer. But if you neglect the reasons for your work, you will deliver something that is not what the client wanted. That is why we listen.  Every business strives to be different. Your brand and website will only stand out by calling attention to your individuality. So before starting our own work, we always talk to our clients until there is no question what they expect from us...
