Their work has received positive feedback from key stakeholders. 3Headed Monster's ability to deliver on time and on budget make them a valuable partner. The team’s quality deliverables and can-do attitude contribute to the recent expansion of their role.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the VP of marketing for a national quick stop restaurant (QSR) brand.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 3Headed Monster? 

We needed to hire an external resource to help us with local activation. We have different creative needs across our 1,200 restaurants. We needed help to create an efficient process to localize our national creative.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement? 

3Headed Monster takes key elements from our national creative and finds opportunities to localize them. They’ll make the creative relevant through copy and/or creative additions. For example, we might have a billboard that has the key creative structure from the national campaign. 3Headed Monster localizes it and makes it relevant for downtown Dallas. 

They also helped us create a campaign for when we rolled out delivery service in local markets. We weren't on national media at that time. 3Headed Monster helped us create digital, radio, and out-of-home campaigns for the launch of our delivery service. 

What is the team composition?

I honestly don't know how many people from their side work on our different projects.

How did you come to work with 3Headed Monster?

We did an RFP process and spoke to a handful of companies during the pitch process. The list was narrowed down quickly, and 3Headed Monster became the finalists. 

What is the status of this engagement? 

Work began October 2018, and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement? 

We do a post-analysis of every campaign. From a system perspective, there is overall satisfaction that 3Headed Monster has elevated the game of our local creative. I consider them to be a true partner. In fact, we’ve recently increased our scope of work with them.

How did 3Headed Monster perform from a project management standpoint? 

Their team is very solid from a client-agency relationship standpoint. 3Headed Monster is definitely best in class in terms of responsiveness, creative aptitude, and support.

What did you find most impressive about them? 

They deliver on time and on budget. We don't always see that in the agency world. 

Are there any areas they could improve? 

One thing I appreciate them the most is that they're not afraid to push back. So it's not an area needing improvement, but I look forward to us working even closer together. If we can continue to work hand-in-hand, we’ll get even better creative ideas from 3Headed Monster. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers? 

3Headed Monster does really good work when they have the background of the problem that you're trying to solve. Give them the full context from the business side, not just from the marketing perspective. Also give them the creative license to push boundaries. They’ve helped create technology that’s never been done before. Give them the freedom to run with their ideas and they will punch well above their weight.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Internal feedback has been positive, and the client has double-digit sales increases since the engagement started. The team added value, fostering a trusting relationship using their professional project management style and skillsets that exceed those of a typical small agency.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I work for an organization called Nothing Bundt Cakes, which is a multi-unit specialty retail and restaurant company. We’ve been operating for about 20 years, expanding our footprint past the immediate region.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with 3Headed Monster?

We were looking for a creative strategic partner with an emphasis on content delivery.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I was brought in to the company soon after a private equity acquisition with much higher expectations for our marketing strategies and growth. We needed a new agency partner that could handle all things creative to help position the brand accordingly. 

Initially, they collaborated on brand and creative positioning, which also led to several campaign ideas to consider. After we achieved internal alignment, they took on everything. Whether it was video, social media, digital support, product and promotion work, or an in-store new look and feel, they handled all our consumer touchpoints creatively. We didn’t have any other in-house services or creative partners, so they took the lead on marketing and storytelling efforts. They even consulted with in-store interior design, which went beyond the scope of the work. They’re still our creative partner today.

What is the team composition?

Just about everyone at the agency touched the project. There’s probably five teammates that we commonly interface with and another ten focusing on the project back at the shop. 

How did you come to work with 3Headed Monster?

We had a prior working relationship with Shon (Founder, 3Headed Monster) and were familiar with the company. In the past, we've worked with some of the bigger agencies, but we determined that we didn’t have the proper funding or desire to buy into larger-agency fee structures. 3Headed Monster is full of talent with big agency experience, but they use a more nimble, scrappy, and affordable approach. They offered the best of both worlds.

How much have you invested with them?

At this point, we’ve probably spent $500,000 since the start of the relationship including outside projects. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We first started working together in June 2017, and our relationship is still moving forward.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Since partnering with them, we’ve seen over double-digit sales growth for the brand. They absolutely had a part in that success. Whether it was a campaign evaluation or in development, they always scored high in our test environments too. They’re ultimately one of our key partners, and their deliverables have been well-received internally. That’s important for a franchise organization like ours.  

How did 3Headed Monster perform from a project management standpoint?

Their project management skills are good. We always had a fair amount of lead time for several projects. On our end, we can tend to overthink and add an extra round or two of iterations. But, 3Headed Monster is able to keep us on track when we strayed outside of our scope. They were respectful of us while remaining mindful of the deadlines we set. Not all partners are able to hit deadlines in a retail environment, but they consistently have.  

What did you find most impressive about them?

As a smaller shop full of big agency talent, their value proposition is super attractive. I’d put them up against any other creative agency. The team is talented, skilled, and can contribute beyond the scope of a project. We had full engagement from their three founding partners on a regular basis, often using their whole team as an extension of ours. For instance, they’ve been present for all types of our board presentations, which added a lot of value.

Are there any areas they could improve?

In the first month or two, both our companies were growing and recruiting. At that time we should’ve thought more about the size of the project and how our need would be filled from a manpower perspective. But, it’s been a few years since then, and we’re both in a better place now.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Tap in and engage with the leadership team initially. It's great to be able to see the talent pool and creative leadership abilities for yourself.
