I spoke with Matt Dittrich, the owner of Emagineering, LLC, twice about a website I was interested in developing. I learned from him that his high-technology product he uses to design basic Florida hotel booking sites and campground sites would handle the concept but would probably be too expensive for me with the revenue model he normally uses. He never went over pricing but said I would probably have to partner with him in order for this to get done.
After our last conversation which lasted a good 2-3 hours, I was told I could expect a phone call from him after he was able to speak to some of his hotel clients about their interest in my idea. As an entrepreneur just starting out this was the best news I could have heard; another entrepreneur had found an interest in one of my ideas and wanted to help make this a go.
The follow up phone call never happened. A week went by and then two. I finally emailed Matt Dittrich and asked for at least an answer as to why he was no longer interested in this or get some idea as to what was wrong with my plan. But no email ever came.
So for anyone interested in working with a company who will treat you professionally, Emagineering, LLC may not be the right company for you. It didn't work for me. And there are other small companies out there that do offer similar software. Maybe he thought I was wasting his time but I'll never know.

I didn't hear from you since we spoke about the extended stay concept. Even if you are not interested, please let me know the feedback you received from your clients so that I can make a rationale decision regarding what to do with my sites whether it be advertising for traditional or true extended stay hotels.
Any input will be greatly appreciated.
