Feedback summary: 

The fully functioning site Avid Panda created works much faster and presents a more professional image to potential business partners. Their diverse experience gives them an edge over specialist agencies and helps cultivate their creativity.

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 a director of an independent HR consultancy.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Avid Panda?

My website wasn’t reaching the right target audience.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They provided a proposal that outlined the various elements of the website that we hoped to improve. Throughout the process, they give good feedback whenever they found something to change.

What is the team composition?

I generally interface with their managing director two or three times a week.

How did you come to work with Avid Panda?

I met their managing director through business networks I'm a member of. It quickly became apparent that he was good at what he did. Avid Panda came highly recommended from various colleagues who had worked with them, and they seemed like the best option to work with.

How much have you invested with them?

To date, we’ve spent roughly £3,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

I started working with them in October 2018, and it's an ongoing engagement.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We now have a fully functioning Web site. It's much faster and presents a much more professional outlook for the company. Feedback from current and potential clients is all really positive.

How did Avid Panda perform from a project management standpoint?

Their project management is excellent, and they usually respond within about half a day. If there are ever delays, they are usually because we get busy on our side. They’re very diligent and are in constant contact. I’m very pleased with them overall.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They don’t focus on any particular industry, and actively engage clients from different backgrounds. That gives them an edge over specialist agencies, as it broadens their outlook. They can apply the rules and creativity they use for one business across the whole spectrum.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The relationship is fairly new, but I can't think of anything they should improve at the moment.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Allow them to get under the skin of your business and let them know what you hope to achieve. Let them get close to you to develop the personal edge that sets them apart. Their managing director is a people person, and that comes across in the work they do.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the operations director at Moving Image Creations, an animation studio. We're skilled in 2D animation, 3D animation, and motion graphics. We love helping businesses discover how they can connect with their audience.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Avid Panda?

We hired Avid Panda to help us with SEO, improve our presence on Google, and raise our brand awareness on social media. We were also keen to bring some of these skills in-house.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goals were to increase traffic to our website and to maintain a steady stream of engagement on our social media accounts.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We knew their managing director by reputation, then met him at a networking event. Since we felt that their proposal aligned best with our goals, we decided to move forward.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

Avid Panda began by modernizing our analytics we could track results better. Then they made technical improvements to our website, researched keywords to hone our content creation strategy, and worked other magic to improve our online visibility.

Given access to our library of approved media, they put together a social media strategy that maximized our reach and engagement. They didn't need our login information to post on our behalf, which gave us the confidence to proceed. 

What was the team composition?

Their account manager headed up our SEO project, working closely with our creative director on content. Another team member handled our social media and reported on its performance.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

Our Google traffic increased by 652% over six months. We weren't tracking conversions before Avid Panda became involved, so we don't know exactly how much our leads have increased. However, they had a very positive impact.

Our social media improved significantly after the first month. Only two inquiries came from those efforts, but we're happy with that. By correlating with our increased social media activity, they also acquired untracked inquiries from existing agency connections. Their training improved our understanding of SEO and our internal content creation processes.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We had a bit of back-and-forth before finding a good rhythm. Their workflow was seamless, and they wasted no time. Our social media workflow started out good, but improved even more once after streamlined the process of sharing our visual assets.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their approach to SEO and digital marketing was refreshing. They operated with complete transparency, integrity, and deep knowledge of digital marketing.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Avid Panda is a five-star company. They were always looking for ways to improve and asking for honest feedback. We never had to think about how we could make things better.
