Feedback summary: 

The end client was happy with the ad, which is attributed to Appetite’s creativity, expertise, and speed. They create mockups quickly and would work overnight to meet tight deadlines. While there were initial issues with emails, their communication style has improved since then.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the senior manager of integrated sales and marketing for a digital sales company. We work with various web publishers in the U.S. I report to our senior director, who oversees everything from presales to postsales. Aside from coming up with editorial ideas, we also work on things like high-impact units for game overlays, mock requests, etc.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Appetite Creative Solutions?

We were looking for new vendors we could use on different projects, allowing us to have a faster turnaround time and innovative solutions.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We have implemented various campaigns with them. Together, we’ve come up with ideas for games, high-impact ads, and design mockups, with the project managers handling execution. They’ve helped us create interscroller ads for kids’ sites, including one for an upcoming movie that has a sliding puzzle and 2 other challenges.

We either brainstorm with Jenny [Managing Director & Founder, Appetite Creative Solutions] or we simply relay what the client wants. If there’s time, they will come back to us with a mockup or a general description of what they can do, along with the costing. When we sell it to the client, we will take the scope and send it to the project manager on the production side. They will then start gathering assets from the client and building the material as per scope. Since we need to optimize projects on our own publishing sites, we make sure that they understand this direction.

What is the team dynamic?

We usually interact with their main manager, who has designers across different offices. We will work with whoever is available, usually 2–3 people at a time.

How did you come to work with Appetite Creative Solutions?

I’ve been with the company for less than a year, so I wasn’t here when our company first approached Appetite. I believe we had an existing connection with their company. They originally made a pitch to our U.K. office, and we decided to engage their firm for a bigger contract that includes Canada.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Appetite in October or November 2016. Recently, we renewed our agreement.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The client was pleased with our work for the kids’ website.

How did Appetite Creative Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

They usually work quickly, building mockups within 2 days or less, depending on the complexity. It took them 2 ½ days to do a slot-machine project that was a bit more complicated.

We’re based in Canada, and they’re in Europe, so we have to be aware of the time difference. They’ve worked overnight at times in order to accommodate this.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I’ve appreciated their overall service. Jenny will Skype me if something new comes up. They’re hands-on, accommodating, and creative.

Are there any areas they could improve?

When we exchange multiple emails, 1 or 2 will get missed or someone will be left out. Our standard procedure is to have the whole team copied on emails so that someone else can pick up the project if someone’s away. Fortunately, Appetite is getting better at this. They’ve usually worked with individuals, but we’re a larger team.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

With a customized solution and competitive price, Appetite secured an ongoing partnership. A rapid workflow and technical expertise led to high-quality products. Although their management skills could improve, Appetite’s campaigns typically performed 20% better than those without them.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I was a co-partner for a full-service creative media agency.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Appetite Creative Solutions?

We needed an agency to help us facilitate rich media for my clients.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Appetite helped with creative development to build and produce online advertising. They supplied the creative to facilitate our media campaigns.

We worked with Appetite to create a brief that we would then send to our clients who would make any necessary changes to it. Once the client signed off on the brief, Appetite would create the first stage mockup of the campaign and get our feedback on it, making iterative changes in the process. When the final mockup was finished, they would go into production and create the assets. With Appetite’s help, we then uploaded the assets into our ad server and other platforms and made changes to the code or size before finally distributing it to consumers via our tech platforms.

What is the team dynamic?

Jenny [Founder] managed our team.

How did you come to work with Appetite Creative Solutions?

We considered about three or four agencies, but Appetite pitched a solution that met our needs and was within budget. We conducted a few trial campaigns, which went well, so we continued the relationship.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around $15,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in December of 2015, and the partnership is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

On average, Appetite’s campaigns performed roughly 20% better than those without their help. We and our clients are happy with the results they achieved.

How did Appetite Creative Solutions perform from a project management standpoint?

They managed our projects well. We mainly communicated via telephone and email.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Appetite produced creative incredibly fast, even for the clients that waited until the last minute to get something done. That never stopped Appetite; they always managed to create something for them.

The whole team understands their industry; technology platforms; and what’s relevant, new, and possible. Some agencies sell you the impossible, but Appetite knows the limits and will produce the best material they can.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Their project and financial management improved a bit, but I think it’ll get better as they work with more clients.

Advice for potential customers?

Give them a good brief and a good financial budget. Be honest with what you want and how much you’re willing to spend, and the solution they provide will be much better
