Feedback summary: 

The client’s website has seen more clicks and impressions since BERK Labs, LLC started its work, leading to an ongoing engagement. The team shows a high level of PPC expertise that they’re willing to share and answer questions about. Their reliability and diligence stand out.

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 marketing director of an integrated medical clinic.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with BERK Labs, LLC?

We engaged BERK Labs, LLC to manage our PPC accounts.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

BERK Labs, LLC took over our Google Ads account. They also implemented strategies to track how users interact with our site and helped us consider other PPC platforms such as Facebook, Bing, and Yahoo. 

BERK Labs, LLC was not our first PPC provider. Whenever we change providers, we allow the new team to start from scratch. Meanwhile, the ads from the previous company keep running to give us that coverage while the new team gets up to speed. Once the new vendor has their own strategies, they go through our account to see what phrases, keywords, and target areas perform better.

What is the team composition?

I only work with Josh (Product & Growth Consultant, BERK Labs, LLC).

How did you come to work with BERK Labs, LLC?

I found BERK Labs, LLC through Upwork. After interviewing a few companies, I felt like they were the best fit for us.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent between $5,000–$10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The collaboration started in August 2019 and is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Because of how our platform is set up, it’s tricky for us to track conversions. However, we have seen the number of impressions and clicks on our website increase dramatically since we hired BERK Labs, LLC.

How did BERK Labs, LLC perform from a project management standpoint?

Josh does a great job helping us understand what BERK Labs, LLC is doing and what strategies they’re implementing. I’m the liaison from the clinic’s side. I provide information about the number of phone calls we received, what services people are looking for, what questions they’re asking, and how they find us. I give Josh that feedback, and then he provides insight based on Google Ads data and other analytics.

What did you find most impressive about them?

BERK Labs, LLC’s knowledge of marketing platforms is much deeper than that of other companies we’ve worked with. They understand the metrics that platforms provide and the strategies that work best. Josh, in particular, has given us a much more full view of how PPC and Google Ads work. I appreciate having that insight.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Pricewise, BERK Labs, LLC charges much higher prices than some of the previous agencies we’ve worked with. However, you get what you pay for, and we’ve seen immense value in their services.

Any advice for potential customers?

Spend as much time getting information out of BERK Labs, LLC. They’ll help you better understand PPC and how their changes will impact your business. Moreover, you’ll learn what you can change within your business to get even better results.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire BERK Labs, LLC?

We needed to hire an external resource to effectively set up and manage all Google ads and help us with overall digital marketing strategy. We also needed someone who would be very collaborative in working with our team.

What were your goals for this project?

Our main goal was to increase traffic and sales on our website through Google Ads. 

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We interviewed more than 10 candidates on Upwork and other platforms. After a couple of introductory calls with Joshua (Founder, BERK Labs, LLC), we immediately knew he was the one we wanted to work with.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

We were lost when trying to figure out where to start with Google Ads. Although we had some general knowledge about how it worked, we didn't know the first steps to take. From day one, Josh laid out exactly what we should do and what he needed from us to do it effectively. 

BERK Labs, LLC started by setting up our Google Ads account and all tracking systems. Next, they created campaigns to begin learning what did and didn't work. Lastly, they analyze the data and continue to improve our ROI effectiveness of various ads.

What was the team composition?

We work directly with Josh.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Josh is crushing it. BERK Labs, LLC has been able to build our website traffic and sales from scratch and achieve great results.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

There’s amazing communication and workflow between our teams. Josh makes the project easy and fun. He’s felt like a member of our team from the start.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Josh is the best freelancer we’ve ever worked with. He pulls from his experience in the space to push our business forward. He’s always willing to help us with other challenges facing our business outside of Google Ads. He truly cares about our business. If you have the chance to work with BERK Labs, LLC, you will not regret it. They’re the best value for your money.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, I can't think of anything that needs to be improved.

When we started we thought we had a good ad strategy, but Joshua really showed us what we were missing. His experience at Google and his knowledge of the ins and outs is very valuable. We're about to launch three new products and I feel confident in doing so with them.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We communicate on almost a daily basis. When we run into issues, Joshua is there to guide us with patience. When we have questions or feedback, he's always receptive and usually adds something we never thought of.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They're time efficient and productive. When we send emails in the evening, he still usually gets back to us that night. I've never felt second best.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We're doing well. I have no complaints or any suggestions to improve the work.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the founder and CEO of nucamp, a coding business both online and in person through coding bootcamps.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with BERK Labs, LLC?

We wanted to improve our customer acquisition. Like many startups, we didn't have the expertise in-house to create the right digital marketing and advertising campaigns.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We have a milestone in August 2018 when several cohorts of coding bootcamps are set to begin. They’re preparing our digital advertising campaigns in order to hit our August targets. BERK Labs created several campaigns to bring net new visitors to our website. They’re using remarketing campaigns to nurture visitors to the website, and drive conversion rates of visitors to registered students. They ensure that we’ve aligned our advertisements to our key messages, and helped us think through what message will be most successful at engaging our audience. They took over our Google AdWords account, and created the advertisements themselves. While working on the website itself isn't part of the scope of work, they offer feedback on the quality of the site and how we can improve the experience.

What is the team composition?

I work with Joshua (owner, BERK Labs, LLC).

How did you come to work with BERK Labs, LLC?

I found them on Upwork. I got several responses and BERK Labs stood out due to the level of analysis in their initial email. It was very specific to my business and well thought out. I was also impressed with Joshua's proven expertise. He has several certifications from Google and is a former Google employee.

How much have you invested with them?

I’ve spent less than $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together last month (April 2018).

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Before they took over, we had one campaign and three ads. After only two weeks, they’ve created five campaigns and are running 150 ads. They’re targeting search and display for Google, and we're just starting to see an uptake on the display campaigns. Also, the cost per click is quite lower than it was before. We don't expect a huge number of registrants, but our intermediate metrics look promising.

How did BERK Labs, LLC perform from a project management standpoint?

I gave them a short time frame to set everything up, and it only took them 10 days to meet that deadline. We communicate as needed. It was almost every day in the beginning, and now it's every other day or every three days.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Joshua is an expert and really knows what he's doing. He goes above and beyond in offering constructive feedback on our website. Most vendors adhere strictly to the scope of the contract. Joshua took an interest in our business, and offers excellent guidance and feedback.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, not as yet.
