BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

RaBrEv matches brands with races and events to help them reach and activate their target audience. We're a one-stop-shop that saves field teams time, energy, resources, and money. We help clients achieve ROIs and metrics, then showcase them for the world to see.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Build. Scale. Prosper.?

I needed branding, sales, marketing, and operations support for my new concept, in addition to a new website

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to launch RaBrEv to my current client base and the world. This involved setting a content plan, website creation, logo creation and messaging around the RaBrEv concept. Build. Scale. Prosper. supported me through these goals, as well as my overall strategy, sales processes, and marketing efforts.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Build. Scale. Prosper. did some previous work for me, but I knew they could help in many other ways. I finally took the plunge, and I couldn't be happier.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

Build. Scale. Prosper. has reinvented my brand and made my idea into a reality. They created a website, logo, positioning plan, style guide, and communication and sales strategy. They have also launched a CRM and run an email marketing campaign.

What was the team composition?

The partners have guided me throughout the process. Build. Scale. Prosper. also brought in a design and copywriting team for the final touches.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

RaBrEv is fully functioning and rapidly growing. I've increased my client base, grown my revenue, and launched into new areas that I didn't think were possible.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

It's excellent. Our regular weekly status meetings keep me up to date, and they have never missed a deadline.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I love their strategic vision and their ability to execute it. Having the tactical chops is one thing. It's another matter entirely to have a strategy. Their management and guidance are invaluable to the growth of my business.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, I'm blown away by their professionalism, attention to detail, and strategy for my brand.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the founder and CEO of Charge Running. We provide live motivational running classes straight from users’ iPhones.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Build. Scale. Prosper.?

We hired Build. Scale. Prosper. to help gain more exposure to users and scale the business

What were your goals for this project?

The goal was to get as many users as possible. The contract was set up so that Stuart (Head of Client Solutions, Build. Scale. Prosper) would succeed when we succeeded.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found them by word of mouth. Stuart and Build. Scale. Prosper. came highly recommended from a fellow colleague.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

Stuart met with myself and several other teammates on many different occasions to strategize on content and connect us with influencers. Whenever we needed him, he was always hopped on a call and give advice. Stuart didn't just provide suggestions, he executed and built the tools that we needed to succeed.

What was the team composition?

Stuart was our single point of contact.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Build. Scale. Prosper. Connected us with several key influencers who fell in love with our app. Not only did they use it personally, but they also shared the app multiple times and have continued to do so. In addition, Stuart helped us develop a better plan for our 2019 content. He met with our content lead for hours, and they didn’t leave the room until they were both happy with our direction.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We used Slack and Asana to manage our workflow. This allowed for quick communication and kept us updated on when things would be completed on both sides.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was impressed with Stuart’s ability to tackle whatever we threw at him. If we needed to find influencers, tweak the UI to convert more customers, or make a content calendar, he did it.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, nothing comes to mind. Overall, we’re happy with the results, and it would be great if we could work with 10 of them.
