Zimidi was a great help at getting my store set-up. I could prob have figured out the majority of items that were covered in the training myself but it comes down to how fast you want to get operational. Hiring Zimidi will accelerate the time it takes to get acquainted with shopify and reduce the first time mistakes that you will likely incur if you decide to DIY.
Zimidi lost a star for several reasons: 1) It wasn't clear that I was supposed to get the product shots myself. Zimidi couldn't even start design until product shots were received. Getting the product shots took a week however it might have easily been longer if there were a lot of shots. 2) Design (look) of the site was mostly from the theme that we selected, however I thought Zimidi did a great job making my product pictures look great, but that took up 4 hours of my retainer time. Had I known it would take that long I might have opted to do most of the grunt work to save time. 3) I felt that there was a lot of wait around time between sessions. This we due to sched availability. I recommend ppl book sessions before time slots get booked.
Overall I felt I got my money's worth but it could have been faster.
Zimidi is a top-notch setup expert company for a Shopify store. David and Gregory were very knowledgeable and professional, and each one contributed greatly in their respective areas of expertise. David's knowledge and insight in the more intangible areas of marketing and SEO were invaluable. Thanks to Zimidi's help, our new Shopify store will launch with everything in place to be successful.
David and Mike are great, they got me up to speed fast, my learning curve was steep but I did it. What's good about ZImidi's set-up is that they transfer valuable knowledge to you so you learn how to do things yourself [rather than doing it for you]. As a one-woman entrepreneur, that is key for me as I continue to build my store and market it. And the aesthetic of it is gorgeous [if I may say so myself] and that is thanks to their guidance. My store looks professional, designed, beautiful. I highly recommend Zimidi.
Zimidi is an exceptional shopify development resource. David Bethane's approach is thorough, intelligent, and supportive from the kickoff of the project through launch. His knowledge of shopify's admin dashboard and configuration is phenomenal - he was able to answer every question with confidence and even shared insider techniques to optimize our product galleries. Whether you're new to the world of eCommerce or looking to migrate to the shopify platform, working with David is one of the best decisions you can make.
Zimidi has set up our Online Shop quickly and trained us in a very professional way in meetings after the initial set up. If we have questions or concerns, David always has the perfect solution and Zimidi also gives great advice about how to manage your shop and how your online presence should be. We recommend Zimidi, Inc. to anybody looking to setup a successful and professional shopify online shop.
David and his team at Zimidi are true professionals. They were prompt and organized from the first contact through completion of each task. David is extremely knowledgeable and always has a very positive attitude. He was able to guide us in each step with the focus on teaching us how to do it ourselves in the future. This was our first eCommerce venture and the Zimidi team made it a very enjoyable experience. We would highly recommend David and Zimidi without hesitation or reservation for anything to do with Shopify. It is now easy to see why David is the number 1 rated Shopify Expert.
We have had a very positive experience working with David, Mike, and the Zimidi team. David is extremely professional and good at what he does. He is a patient teacher and super easy to work with. Overall Zimidi is very quick to respond and always extremely helpful.
David not only knows the ins and outs of Shopfiy, but helps to train you into an expert yourself.
They really know Shopify and were with me all the way from the beginning to the end.
I would recommend them to anyone using Shopify.
My experience with Zimidi was excellent. The end result of my store came out better than what I was expecting. David was very professional with me and followed through on everything he said he would do. His expertise and suggestions were extremely helpful in guiding me on best practices for my store. I am VERY HAPPY I chose Zimidi. You will not regret your decision on using this expert.
David is the best! He not only gives you knowledge about whats being done but teaches you to do it. He knows his stuff! Very nice & thourough! I Highly recommend him.
David is a genius at Shopify. He has assured me that all the needs for my store would be satisfied. His training skills are excellent and has extreme knowledge of Shopify. My site looks amazing. Every obstacle I came across, David had the solution. Thank you David for your talent and especially your professionalism. Thank you for allowing me to create my vision.
Zimidi is zee best.....knowledgeable, fast and right on target. I started my shopify experience with David and James while becoming acquainting with my new HP pavillion. So in a sense, I had to learn 2 things at once. David was very patient and waited while I stumbled through. I ended up with a beautiful, clean, modern website and...going live just in time for 4th of July! Zimidi's scheduling is easy via their bookings page. I contacted other shopify experts who responded unprofessionally. I highly recommend these guys :)

Working with David @ Zimidi has been our greatest pleasure.
David takes his time to explain how Shopify works and what are the options that are best for our store-front. He is very knowledgeable and resourceful.
If we had to redesign or rebuild our site again it would definitely be with Zimidi!
I've been working with David on our biggest project to date for the past couple of months. We of course had an idea of what we wanted, but had no clear plan of how to execute it. David's expertise and advice have been invaluable in terms of getting this project on the right track and relieving me of a great deal of stress. His knowledge of programming and his awareness of clients' needs has really helped us to develop a site that has strong functionality and is easy to use.
David was great. He helped explain to me how I could build my own website. Which apparently is not as hard to do as I thought. Time consuming yes but difficult no. Not if you have David to call if you get stuck.
My experience with Zimidi was nothing short of stellar. Dave really showed me how shopify worked and how to set up and run my store. My store looks beautiful an I fully understand how to run the store on my own. I also loved the ease of being able to schedule/reschedule my sessions through there scheduling tool. Dave was so professional and knowledgeable. I also loved the photoshop tips he gave me. I would highly recommend thier services. Thanks Dave!!
My experience with Zimidi has been great. I've been working with them for a couple of months now, and they have proven extremely helpful and knowledgeable. I have been able to learn a lot from Greg and David in my lessons because how organized and patient they are. Everything from setting up meetings to lesson follow ups are well streamlined, which allows me to work around my schedule and stay updated on projects they are working on. David has provided amazing sites for my company, that are both aesthetically pleasing and easy to navigate. I will definitely be using their services for future projects.
My first initial contact with David was like talking to an old friend. I had no idea what to expect or where to start on building my own website. I always paid someone else to do it for me. David listened to all my concerns and many suggestions, then he put my mind at ease and made me feel like I could conquer this project and one even larger. He was right, my site looks wonderful, it looks like a million bucks and I owe it all to Team David! Every time I thought I had a situation that was going to be "hair pulling" to say the least, after I explained to David what I needed or wanted, he offered a solution and gave me back my piece of mind. This was an excellent experience and he and his staff our outstanding trainers who know their stuff, not only about Shopify, but website design, graphics, printing, and accounting. Everything you need to set up and run a successful store! GO TEAM DAVID!!
Absolutely thrilled with this process. The Zimidi team made the process of launching my new venture easier than ever before. Being a florist my website needed to have a bit of customization as well as having a focus on visuals and even this was easy. From start to finish everything was complete in under a month and could have been faster if I had all of my photographs complete when I started the process.
If I could rate higher than 5 stars I would. I will be telling everyone about this experience.
David and the staff at Zimidi, Inc. have been amazing! David has assisted me in building a new website for my business, he is an extremely knowledgable web designer and it has been a pleasure working with him. He understood my vision and was more than willing to assist me in my quest, my website looks beautiful and I could not have done it without him. When I emailed with questions, their response was quick. When I asked his opinion, he was honest. If you are looking for a Shopify Expert, Zimidi, Inc. is wonderful to work with, honest and knows the product. Thanks David and Mike, it's been a pleasure working with you!
David and crew were excellent! They helped me understand the process of building of my website and offered great suggestions and insight. From start to finish, I received the support I needed to get my online store the best it could be! Highly recommend their services.
David did an amazing job helping us to set up and customize our new Shopify site, soon to be thevoipmart.com. The guys at Zimidi were flexible with our time we scheduled, tailoring our conversations and screen-time to meet our specific needs. These guys always answer their email quickly, so you can focus on getting things done. I very highly recommend Zimidi for your next online project!
It was great working with David he is very patient and a great teacher. He shows you very clearly how your money is being used and although I was in Mexico (he can really speak Spanish) I never had a problem he makes everything easy.
David and his staff were very professional and easy to work with. They made sure that i had a great understanding of the functionality of my website, so i could make future changes on my own. David made this a easy and great experience for me. I am very great full for the help from team Zimidi and i highly recommend their services.
David was a pleasure to work with. I chose a theme and gave him my categories and images. A few days later the site was built and ready for products. But first he trained me on everything he had done to set the shop up and he gave me homework so I could play around and get familiar with how to manage the site. From there we went through each "section" of the site from products to shipping. David gave me detailed guidance on each and always homework to make sure I really understood what I was doing. I really enjoyed the way David moved through the site. My homework always led into the next thing we would be discussing and gave me the opportunity to move forward without him before our next meeting. I hadn't used photoshop in many years. Have no fear, David has. He gave me all the standards for image sizes and walked me through processing my first product image. He always has time and the answers for all my questions. He is a great teacher and made this so much easier than I expected. I already have plans to use him again!
As a first time online business owner, my boyfriend and I had absolutely no idea what we were doing, all we had was an idea and passion. From the theme shopping, to the whole website production, David and the rest of the Zimidi group were there for us hand and foot through the whole process. If we ever needed to contact them outside of our scheduled meeting, they were there with a quick and helpful email. We definitely could not have done a website at all without the help of Zimidi. If you are having a tough time deciding on which Shopify expert to use, look no further than Zimidi. They are absolutely amazing and made our idea and passion come to life!
Zimidi is a great company that knows what they are doing very professional with their work. David really help me understand everything and how to run my store. They have answers for everything and knows every app you need. They take you step by step for getting your store up and running.
This was the best $500 I have ever invested in myself and my business. I used the free 30 minute consultation to lay out my business idea for an Alpaca scarf and throw specialty store for David, including my concerns about my lack of computer knowledge. David was very easy to talk to and he explained everything that Zimidi had to offer and how it worked. He wanted to make sure that in the end, I knew how to run my very own website.
The best part of working with David was that he was very hands on. We worked together to chose a theme template that would best showcase my unique products. We used screen sharing sessions so that he could teach me how to do all the work on my website- everything from editing photos, to uploading products, to boosting SEO, writing blogs, shipping, you name it! Screen sharing was such a valuable tool for me.
Session appointments were always on-time, organized, and full of creative ideas. Emails were always answered promptly.
I have continued to have a working relationship with David and Zimidi for all of my web design needs. He is always available for further consultation and guidance. I would absolutely recommend his services.
This may be the best $500 I've ever spent! During the first meeting with David, we went through my needs for the boutique, my taste, etc. He told me how Zimidi works (billing, web meetings...) and shared some ideas for the layout of the website including the list of paid Themes that he could provide for free.
Unlike a lot of web support I found through Shopify and elsewhere, David did not offer to do anything for me... he wanted to make sure I did all the clicking, cropping, and learning. He trains you to do everything on your own so that you never have to pay anyone again. If you choose to pay someone for any of this work, at least you know how much it "should" cost.
Initially, I was worried to be paying for something I could learn on a book. As much as I love books, there is no book or video tutorial available that provides the amount of support David can provide in just one hour (or 5, in my case). I would recommend working with David alongside all the Shopify support videos and forums and maybe a Photoshop book. This way, David helps you learn all the tricks that you didn't know existed, but if you ever forget about them, you can always reference back to them.
David was amazing to work with. He is always professional and kind. He offers great training classes that teach you how to do everything so that once the website is set up, you can keep doing everything yourself.
Another thing that I like about him is that he knows exactly what you want but if you aren't artistic (like me), that is okay because he functions as my creative side as well. It was everything I imagined it to be but I couldn't put it down on paper. He was able to do that for me.
Thank you for all your help David! :)
Our experience with Zimidi has been nothing less than stellar. David and his team were thorough, quick to respond, and always answered any questions we had almost imediately. We could not have navigated Shopify without Zimidi.
I am 100% satisfied and pleased with the level of expertise and customer service I received. Not only does my site look awesome, the quick communication, suggestions, awesome price and friendly conversation/customer service made this site design seamless. This is a company that actually "cares" about their customer and guiding them to the end result they imagine. The 1 on 1 training included with the package was worth the investment itself. I was able to take over control of my store and design once it was over, and I am very pleased with the outcome. Thank you for your work and time! You have a client for life!! or as long as im still in business haha...THANKS!!!
They helped me understand Shopify and how to build a better website. I would not have known the proper process for building a Shopify site had it not been for Zimidi. I would recommend them to anyone wanting to understand Shopify better.
David was very knowledgeable, pleasant, and patient. Beyond the training in Shopify, which was great, he didn't hesitate to guide me in best practices for my shop. As a newbie, this was a real plus. Session appointments were on-time, well-organized, and got right down to business. David easily adapted to my skill level (novice on certain things and confident in other areas). Billing was transparent, accurate and timely. I feel good knowing I have Zimidi to turn to as my business grows and my shop needs change.
It was truly a great experience in working with David with Zimidi. He was very hands on and provided great tools , like screen sharing to assist with development of my website. In addition, David provided an educational session in which I learned a lot of the logistics of the website. Moreover he was very through and patient. Thanks to Zimidi ( David) I have a slogan for website.
It was a pleasure to work with David and his team - he is a great teacher and has a lot of knowledge to give us the tools to do things on our own! Could not ask for a better team to work with. I highly recommend him.
David and Mike have been fantastic to work with! They have been a lifeline to me, and I would not have the awesome website I have without them. They are easily accessible, respond to questions quickly, and are truly experts in building exactly the website you want!
David and his staff are a pleasure to work with. They assisted and answered all the questions we had while setting up our store. It was a pleasing experience to work with them and we look forward to working with them in the future.
David is great to work with - very knowledgable & straightforward. I look forward to working with him in the future!
I was very pleased to work with the Zimidi team. They were extremely knowledgeable of the Shopify platform and most of all professional. I would use the again in the future!!
Zimidi was very instrumental is helping us to get our store up and running. It would have been intrinsically more difficult without their guidance. Thanks Zimidi!
David and his team at Zimidi were awesome right from the first call. Zimidi met every timeline we established and the design work was perfect. If you're looking for a professional to work with call Zimidi and ask for David!
Zimidi has been amazing to work with. They were very thorough and patient. Best of all they make it fun. We would not be able to kick off our business without their valuable insight. Keep up the great work!
They really seemed to have a good handle on the best themes out there. They listened to what I was looking for and helped me customize my website to those needs.
I had spent way, way too long trying to do this myself. And then after 5 hours with David, I have a website! I also have some great tips on product photography, that are saving a ton of time!
David is extremely experienced, knowledgeable and articulate (This last item should go without saying, but these days I feel it's valuable as it is becoming scarce.) So the gems of SEO wisdom imparted along the way were beyond helpful and much appreciated.
I would work with David again and highly recommend him.
I can't think of anything that was left out. David covered everything from start to finish. I'm so happy with our new website. Zimidi, Inc. was so organized, never missed a call/meeting! I wish he lived next door so I could pick his brain a little more over a glass of wine ;)
David was great! He was extremely knowledgeable and helpful.I plan on getting more help from him in the future! I highly recommend using Zimidi for your Shopify store.
We had a great experience from beginning to end! We highly recommend working with Mike, he'll help you understand the entire process and give you the tools you need to make your store the best it can be.
David meticulously and energetically walked me through each step addressing any questions I had along the way.
Aside from being helpful he is also pleasant.
I loved Zimidi ( David ) s help with my new website design!! he is very patient and not only created but actually was able to show me how to update , add videos and took my crafty looking website and made it look professional similar to Macys or Target quality for a very affordable price!! my sales increased the very next day!!! I am so very pleased!! Thank you David and staff!!!! : ) Kim
David and the Zimidi team were great to work with. They made a somewhat intimidating process seem simple, and always with a great attitude. They got us up and running really quickly and I am very pleased with the result.
Zimidi is an extremely professional company who responded to me immediately, worked quickly and creatively, and provided me with very valuable information and guidance based on their many years of expertise. Zimidi helped construct my website, taught me how to use Shopify, and worked very efficiently so that my costs were kept down. I recommend Zimidi wholeheartedly!
Zimidi was really responsive from the time I made my first phone call. David knows his stuff and used his knowledge of code to really personalize my store as I needed it to function without breaking the budget. He was always there to answer my questions and walk me through changes via screen-sharing. These hands-on lessons made it very easy to move forward managing my own site solo.
I found David at Zimidi to be exceptionally knowledgeable at both marketing and Shopify software. He was easy to deal with, always available for questions and complete in his teaching style so that, going forward, I feel confident that I can handle my site. He is very creative and shares his marketing expertise. We found ourselves shrieking with excitement at his ideas for our site.
David was extremely helpful with helping us build ShipMyUndershirts.com! Our site was very intricate and had subscription based billing, shipping apps, and multiple products. David knew exactly what to do and helped us feel peace of mind throughout the whole process! We would recommend him to anyone wanting to build a website using the Shopify platform!
The experience has been great. Dave is a great teacher and has a lot of knowledge on everything related to shopify. $ well spent.
Dave was a great throughout the process of building my website. He helped us come up with a good template for the website that matched up with our business vision. It was evident that he is familiar with the Shopify templates. He was able to customize a couple different parts of the website to suit our needs. He directed us to some good resources and gave us some good tips.
I needed custom work done that went way beyond the starter package and they did a fantastic job. They know Shopify inside and out and bring a ton of experience to the table. David is always available to answer questions and even offer one on one training sessions. Prices are incredibly reasonable for the level of work they do and look forward to working with them again!
David's value to my company went beyond his expertise in the Shopify platform. He was extremely focused on leveraging the existing abilities of Shopify to provide a cutting edge, mobile-friendly site, WITHOUT custom code. This saved me tons of money and time. Without his deep insight into 'best-practices,' I could never have made those decisions on my own. His experience is priceless.
Fantastic! They made it super simple for me to get started with my first-ever online store. I was hand-held in getting the art and content to them, and it was up and visible in my store ASAP. I was then trained on how to get in behind the scenes to update my inventory, accept payment, communicate & track with my customers, etc. EASY & FUN!!! Can't wait to use Zimidi again!!!
I don't give reviews very often, but I feel compelled to give a review about my personal experience with Zimidi. Working with David & Mike has been a pleasure. They are professional, honest, and most important to me, they genuinely cared about my business and took the time to understand the end result I was looking for. I just booked them for another project and I highly recommend them.
Zimidi was great! They knew immediately how to fix our problem and they also gave us the tools to do some things on our own. Highly recommend using them as they have a deep knowledge of Shopify.
Could not ask for a better team to work with and learn from about how Shopify works and also getting our website looking like it should. If you need help these are the people you need.
David was extremely patient with me -- helping customize my site and explaining how things worked in this alien world of online stores. His sense of what was the best fit for my business was right on. He served as my innovator, extreme makeover artist, and therapist all at once! Thanks, David.
David is the bomb! :) He did an amazing job by simplifying my website set up. I should not forget to say he is friendly and patient. He handled my business like it was his own. Thank David
We chose David because of his Shopify portfolio of great sites and solid recommendations - and now we can count ourselves amongst his happy clients.
David works very fast, knows Shopify very well, and is a pleasure to work with. I will be using his services again in the future.
I would highly recommend working with Zimidi! I recently worked with David on putting my website together. He is very easy to work with, extremely knowledgeable, always replied to emails quickly, and helped me tremendously! If I had to do it all over again, I would call him in a heartbeat!
David was great to work with. He eliminated any uncertainty and made it certain! Very responsive and always willing to help.
David was very accesible when trying to find him. He works very well and accomplished exactly what we were looking for. I would recommend him any day.
David did a great job. He is quick and efficient and extremely knowledgable about Shopify. I would definitely hire him again!
He is very familiar with every aspect of Shopify and is able to explain it to me with great patience. He is able to balance formality and friendliness.
Another area that impressed me significantly is that he took the initiative to organize the layout of the shop so that it looks professional and well put together.
All in all, I have a great experience and will consult him again soon.
Working with Zimidi has been great! They far exceeded my expectations and kept right on budget. Not only did they design our new website but they went as far as teaching me how to use Shopify. Extremely personable and patient during the entire duration of the project. Could not be happier. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
Working with David at Zimidi, Inc. has been a great experience.
His instruction and guidance on "starting
my "online store" easy to follow.
His professionalism and customer service has been over-the-top!!
The shopify order fulfillment process is as elaborate as any Fortune 500 companies for a fraction of the cost. Zimidi was able to fully train me on the operation and maintenance of the site in less than an hour. Our shop is now running more efficiently than ever.
Great Job. David was very helpful in explaining how everything worked and is always available if i have any questions related to Shopify.
I found David @ Zimidi through the a shopify Experts option and he did not disappoint. Not only did he deliver exactly what I needed, but he consistently went above and beyond with useful input and ideas to improve functionality of my store. If that isn't enough, he is also great at customer service. A true master of all things Shopify.
David did a great job assisting me with my website! He was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and professional! The customer service he provided was excellent and he helped me along every step of the way! I would definitely recommend Zimidi to all my friends and colleagues!
I had a very good experience working with David and Zimidi, Inc.
As former developer (and someone who has managed developers and contractors for years), I found David very easy to work with, creative and very knowledgeable about what you can do in Shopify.
I found David very passionate about the work he produces for this clients. His customer support is superior.
Thank you David
I decided to become a Shopify Expert after building my own online store. After 17 of online business and setting up 5 different ecommerce platforms, I know that Shopify is the easiest and most flexible platform and, more importantly, it gives the best results. Zimidi is a Shopify Expert with experience in all things web!
Zimidi could not have been more professional.
We maintained our own website for years before David convinced me to switch to Shopify and I love it.
David was awesome!! Always answered his phone and almost immediately fixed all issues I encountered. Choosing David from Zimidi Inc. was the right choice for World of Beer - Key West. We were running a fully functioning online retail store within a week of initial contact. He also added the store to facebook and customers can also purchase from their mobile device. Thank you David Bethune!!
David was very helpful. I have no complaints. He helped me organize my page into categories. The things I could do my self he showed me how to do it. He made himself available for questions after my time was up. I had a very good experience.
Working with David at Zimidi was a pleasure. He was very informative and walked me through all of the processes required on the site. Additionally, when I needed additional assistance, he was just a phone call away.
Zimidi provides the highest quality work with insightful planning and design techniques. I have relied on Zimidi for 5 years to provide the websites that my customers rave about the ease of shopping for my over 150 different products. The work is far superior to any other company I have used in the past and gives customers a hope for a website beyond their expectations.
I have had all my expectations for my new website met and exceeded! The end result is so outstanding that I plan to share my experience with other business that may need to create a website or may be in need of a new experience.
