Feedback summary: 

Atalanta Digital’s efforts surpassed expectations, tailoring their success metrics and ensuring they fulfilled the goals of the project. The CEO was well informed on strategy and technology in the field, and their team’s diligence ensured a positive and productive engagement.

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’m the former communications manager for the California Smokers’ Healthline at the University of California, San Diego. It’s a program funded by the California Department of Health that helps people quit smoking over the phone, and I was in charge of marketing, advertising, and outreach.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Atalanta Digital?

We were trying to boost consumer intake and increase program enrollment. We wanted to grow the volume of phone calls that we received and the number of referrals from healthcare providers.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I depended on them to develop the Google Ads campaign completely from beginning to end. They formulated and executed a project strategy that would create an influx of callers in addition to tracking metrics like visitors and click-through rate.

What is the team composition?

We only worked with Lubna (CEO, Atalanta Digital).

How did you come to work with Atalanta Digital?

I first met Lubna while she was working on a similar Google Ads campaign for a different agency connected to the Department of Health. However, we contracted solely with Atalanta Digital since the beginning of the project.

How much have you invested with them?

We didn’t have consistent funding, but we spent about $500,000 in total.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together on this project from July 2016–December 2018. Atalanta Digital may still have a contract with the team, but I’ve recently retired.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I thought that Atalanta Digital went above and beyond what’s necessary for a project like this. While it’s pretty standard to measure visitors and click-through rate, we wanted to ensure that it was translating to the program’s overall intake. So, we decided to measure how the campaign impacted the number of calls received and referrals from healthcare providers, and in turn, if that increased enrollment in our program.

How did Atalanta Digital perform from a project management standpoint?

Lubna was an excellent project manager and one of the smartest people I’ve worked with. I established goals and created a budget, but she did the rest. She was very detail-oriented and tracked the project from start to finish.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Atalanta Digital stands out compared to agencies I’ve worked with in the past. They grasp the complexities of Google Ads and Google Analytics extremely well.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I honestly can’t think of anything.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I would recommend them to anyone who wants a smart, diligent partner.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

Atalanta helped us create a website that reflected our brand and let customer book online.

Atalanta then helped advise and direct us for our SEO including Local. They outlined a whole strategy for us that helped us understand and trust the process. Lastly, they helped us setup and test PPC campaigns to see what our cost of driving new customers was. Ultimately they helped us drive consistent leads to our business.

Lubna was very responsive and knowledgable. She was very direct and honest with what she thought we needed and helped us keep within our budget without cutting corners. We felt like the quality of work we got from Atalanta was very high and what you bigger companies normally pay a lot of money for.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Lubna is a wealth of knowledge in marketing and digital strategy. Atalanta Digital saved us time, money, and energy by focusing on what really mattered.

Are there any areas for improvement?

None. I always refer Atalanta to any business owner I know.

Atalanta navigated a huge technical challenge in launching our Google Shopping account. Lubna managed to troubleshoot several complex issues with our product feed. On top of that, our click-through rate doubled during our collaboration with Atalanta.

Everything went smoothly; I never felt that I was waiting too long for a response. We touched-base weekly to discuss our needs, and Lubna was always responsive. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

Based on her knowledge and performance in that situation, I felt confident expanding her scope of work.
