Helias asked Buzzworthy Studio to design an e-commerce platform to attract more online sales. Buzzworthy Studio decided to use the site to educate visitors about the somewhat unknown industry and benefits of essential oils based on the visitor data available. Based on the improvements, the e-commerce site now ranks higher in organic search and the average order size has increased 25%.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Helias oils is an essential oil wellness brands. I am the cofounder and CFO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Buzzworthy Studio?

Web Design, SEO, and Digital Marketing

What were your goals for this project?

Create a unique shopping experience for our guests that provided an enhanced level of education and utilized visuals to help convey scent.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I selected Buzzworthy via recommendation.

Describe the project in detail.

To create a custom shopify web design that fills our needs to educate our guest and bring to life our essential oil collection. Since this is a startup we also needed digital marketing and SEO work to set us up for success and drive people to the website.

What was the team composition?

We had two project managers, and then buzzworthy had 3 people working on it with us.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our website has received numerous design awards and garnered us traffic growth +1000% YOY.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow seemed to pace nicely, with both sides working independently, then coming back together for weekly/ bi weekly meetings to discuss progress and next steps.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I was very impressed by and appreciative of how the team made anything we asked possible. They were realistic about the time it would take. We had a bunch of requests that were out of scope and they seemed to make it all fit.

Are there any areas for improvement?

To be honest, I have been on a few of these type projects with much larger companies that were a mess. This was by far the most seamless experience working with a web developer and digital marketing agency.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the technical director for The Serhant Team. I research and project manage all strategic implementation of technology and related efforts.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Buzzworthy Studio?

We hired BWS to help us build our most ambitious project yet- an online course that we intended to reach millions of people with and also earn millions of dollars in revenue.

What were your goals for this project?

  • To hire a world-class design and development studio in helping us bring our course vision to life and become the #1 Real Estate sales course in the US.
  • To have a hyper-converting sales page that brought us a ton of platform engagement.
  • To hire a developer that would not only perform the work but partner with us on guiding the process.
SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We were recommended BWS by another satisfied customer that I've done business with in the past and spoke tremendously highly of Gary and his team. We got lucky, because we were prepared to need to shop around and didn't have to once we saw Gary and Marko's presentation and pitch.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

The project involved building a sales funnel page, connecting it to our e-learning platform of choice, customizing the e-learning platform a whole bunch, helping us connect our email marketing platform to both of those, and providing awesome design of all components.

We also created a members-only Facebook group that they helped us automate a tiered membership purchase workflow that gave certain purchasers access to the features and benefits of their purchased tier which was highly complex but they were able to solve all of it for us.

What was the team composition?

The team composition was BWS' admin leader, their lead designer, their lead developer, and the entire 24/7 support team that works underneath them. Completely seamless, and we always felt guided on all matters as well as listened to carefully for what would make us happy while ensuring project success.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

We grossed over $1m in sales in a little over 3 months following the launch of the product. Pretty good I'd say?

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

Project management was done in 3 ways - I was the project manager on the client side and was added to Buzzworthy's Slack, given direct access to the project channel and direct communication to admin lead, design lead, and development lead. We also collaborated in Google Docs that allowed for group feedback.

Lastly, Buzzworthy would provide iteration previews via Invision Studio which allowed us to interact with prototype designs and comment directly on the prototypes while also marking completed changes as finished. It was remarkably efficient, and we barely needed to send any emails back and forth at all.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Vision, expertise, professionalism, responsiveness, pedigree, and inspired contributions to the project via their recommendations and guidance.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Gary could shave his head into a mohawk maybe, that could make the video conferences more entertaining perhaps, but other than that, no - I firmly believe that Buzzworthy truly checks all the boxes, hits all of the marks, has its you-know-what together, and I enjoy working with them again and again as we make improvements to our online course and membership experiences.

I love working with them so much that I was willing to fill out this questionnaire despite me being regarded as an impossibly busy person, so that's gotta come off as them being very special!

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the founder of a boutique brand strategy agency.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Buzzworthy Studio?

I hired Buzzworthy to build our website.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to give prospective clients and prospective employees a place to learn about what we do. The site needed to reflect a tension - we are creative and work with culture-leading clients so the site needed to look 'cool' and relevant and current; but we also work with huge corporate clients who needed to see a site that looks slick and professional.

The goal was to make it credible but still cool and not overly corporate. Further complicating things was that we're a strategy agency that doesn't produce creative materials, so we don't have work to show. That meant it was really important for the Buzzworthy design team to figure out something clever for the landing page that wasn't based on our work (since we can't show it) or on stock photography (since it's awful).

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We presented our challenges and they seemed to embrace it and had some clever ideas right off the bat. Furthermore, for our budget, they were by far the most professional team we met with. I wanted to know we had a real team with all that comes with it (account management, tech support), instead of an individual creating our site and using 3rd party contractors to help. Buzzworthy was able to offer us that.

Describe the project in detail.

I don't remember all the details now, but it seemed like a straightforward design process with plenty of check-ins and room for feedback.

What was the team composition?

A consistent project manager, with support from the right people (design, development) when needed.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Lots and lots of compliments on our website!

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Great - easy communication, very responsive.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They're very professional, even when working with a client with a limited budget.

Are there any areas for improvement?

They could have been a tad more proactive in communicating delays. We had a few and that's fine and to be expected, but a couple times I had to nudge them to get more info.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the co-founder of a healthcare company that diagnoses, tests, and treats patients for sleep apnea and snoring. We provide a virtual diagnosis and treatment without having to visit the doctor's office.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Buzzworthy Studio?

We hired Buzzworthy to create our brand and brand guidelines, to design our website, and to fully develop our website.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to develop a brand that would resonate with consumers and also to build and launch our website in conjunction with our service.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We searched online and held meetings with multiple agencies, as well as asked for proposals from them. We took a look at the previous work of all agencies and decided who's vision aligned with us the best. Buzzworthy provided the best work, within our budget, and on the timeline we wanted.

Describe the project in detail.

We held a series of meetings to really delve into our brand, market, and product. The team was able to visit our office physically in NYC and spend time with patients face-to-face. This helped tremendously in creating three different mockups, from which we chose our logo and design. We then had multiple different webpage options to choose from as well.

What was the team composition?

The team was robust. We had a great designer, multiple development engineers, a project manager, and the head of the company on calls or in correspondence with us regularly. We eventually also had a growth marketing lead once we had launched.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We saw great feedback from our brand and our website. When we launched we were indexing very strongly thanks to the content we had on our page, as suggested from the growth marketing lead at Buzzworthy. We were able to book hundreds of sleep test orders thanks for the easy flow of the website.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow was great and the easiest part. We communicated seamlessly with the design team and had standing calls every week. During times when we had to get something done on a deadline the team was able to complete it with no hiccups.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The dedication of the team members, especially the design, development, and marketing members. They understood what we wanted and then worked hard to bring that to reality.

Are there any areas for improvement?

A shorter development period for the website would have been great, but in the end we ended up with a quality product that helped us much more. We appreciate the hard work and time it took to get there.

I'm the former CEO of Manhattan Cryobank, Inc. We provide sperm bank services to the local, domestic, and global markets.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Buzzworthy Studio?

We hired Buzzworthy Studio to market our company through AdWords, SEO, and retargeting, and to create landing pages for our recruitment websites. We needed a modern design, an enticing call to action, and fresh copy to speak to millenials.

What were your goals for this project?

We needed to attract and convert potential sperm donors between the ages of 18-25 who were attending top universities in New York City.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

One of our investors recommended Buzzworthy Studio. Their design and marketing work had delivered a significant ROI.

Describe the project in detail.

Our teams met and developed a plan that suited our goals and budget. Buzzworthy Studio designed our landing page and started driving traffic to it. They did SEO work, ran ads on social media and Google, and scheduled monthly calls to discuss the results. Over time, they made changes and suggestions to improve our results.

What was the team composition?

We worked with a designer and their advertising team. More people were involved, but I didn't work directly with them.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We ran this campaign for two years and increased our leads by 266%. Our donor recruitment had been stagnant, with little growth in potential donor applications. Once we contracted Buzzworthy Studio, the number application submissions increased subtantially.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Buzzworthy Studio responded to my questions and concerns. We had a standing monthly call and occasionally met at my office.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They were extremely dedicated to our growth and quickly addressed any questions or concerns. They always brought new ideas to the table, even when we were getting a lot of signups.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I have no areas of improvement for Buzzworthy Studio.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Buzzworthy Studio?

Our company had been using the same website design since it started in 2010, so we required a fresh look to match our branding initiatives. We also needed them to redesign the site to enhance the overall user experience.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted our site to provide a more modern experience to set ourselves apart from our competition. Overall, our goal was to stand out in the crowded market and have our site represent how different we are.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

After researching several options, we were immediately impressed with Buzzworthy Studio’s portfolio. They demonstrated they could bring a fresh perspective to site design and create an interactive user experience.

Describe the project in detail.

We kicked off the project with a series of discovery and brainstorming sessions. Buzzworthy Studio took the time to understand what our company is, what our objectives were, and the message we wanted to convey. After getting to know us, their team began evaluating our competitors and started the design process. There were opportunities for us to provide feedback along the way, and they would respond to the tweaks we wanted to make. They created the interactive designs and showed us how the live site would operate. After we launched it, they were available to answer questions and make changes to the site.

What was the team composition?

We had the most contact with our dedicated project manager and lead designer from Buzzworthy Studio. There was a whole team working behind them, especially during the launch, but we didn’t communicate directly with them as frequently.  

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The site was launched in coordination with our other marketing campaigns, which allowed us to participate in a major industry conference. We were able to include the redesigned site at this event where we announced our new product line, so the timing couldn’t have been better.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Communication takes the effort of both parties, and Buzzworthy Studio was very responsive.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their dedication to understanding our business and translating that into a unique design was exceptional. We valued their responsiveness, especially when the site went live.

Are there any areas for improvement?

We could have benefitted from more initiative on their end when we struggled to identify our needs. Though we gained a better understanding of our business, it could have been helpful for their team to step in and give us some direction. There also could have been more quality checks before going live to avoid some issues.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Buzzworthy Studio?

Our company needed a new website. 

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted a beautiful, clean, modern, and legible site that could attract new business and validate our existing client base. We wanted a space where we could host our existing work (artwork and case studies), showcase our client reviews, explain our services, showcase our uniqueness, and offer live support.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We were looking for a design and development team who could understand our philosophy, purpose, and product. We needed a team that could dispell the jargon of media buying so that our prospects and clients our services. We heard of Grapeseed Media via word-of-mouth recommendations. We reviewed their past work, reviews, met with them. They were calm and well-spoken, and we had a great gut feeling that this was going to work out.

Describe the project in detail.

Grapeseed Media redesigned a website from scratch using existing internal marketing materials, a fresh copy, and third-party resources such as Intercom and ScheduleOnce. They first asked us questions about our company and aesthetic. Then, their team scoped out the budget, plan of action, and timeline. With this foundation, they used our submitted assets to create a mock site, which we used to provide feedback on. In addition, they integrated it with Google Docs to keep organized. 

What was the team composition?

We worked with their founder, a designer, and a developer.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

After the site was complete, we submitted QA requests via a Google sheet and saw results almost instantaneously. In addition, we've gotten a ton of amazing feedback from friends, family, clients, and prospects about the stunning look and feel of our site. Our traffic increased, and our contact features gained us some incredible leads.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Our workflow was super effective. Their team was professional and went above and beyond to keep us organized, calm, and forward-thinking. Their founder helped us scope out the project and timeline, and their designer conducted multiple Skype meetings to review design ideas. Along with this, their resourceful developer worked around the clock to deal with bugs.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the founder of a yoga company called Hoboken Yogi. For two years, I’ve run yoga and adventure retreats all over the world. I also instruct classes in studios across New York City and Hoboken.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Buzzworthy Studio?

I had a previous website and brand image, but it wasn’t professional enough to engage my audience. As a result, I engaged Buzzworthy Studio to create a new logo and website in addition to managing my online marketing.

What were your goals for this project?

I wanted to grow my business and gain more visibility through a new brand that would drive more traffic.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Several of my colleagues had used them before and recommended them to me.

Describe the project in detail.

Initially, they designed new marketing materials, including a logo, business cards, and other collateral. They then submitted a design proposal for my site. We held online meetings to discuss the designs, revising the visuals until I was satisfied. Afterward, they built the site in about 3–4 weeks and have been overseeing my digital marketing ever since. Currently, they’re managing my SEO and running social media campaigns.

What was the team composition?

I've worked with a project manager, a designer, and a developer who walked me through making site changes.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Since launching my new brand and site, I’ve received a lot of great feedback. Site traffic has increased, and I’ve gained more subscribers and followers on social networks.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The development process was seamless. Before they began, they provided a detailed outline of the project that explained their approach. During development, we typically had weekly meetings where they would provide any updates about changes. They worked efficiently and delivered the project earlier than expected.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I appreciate their knowledge and experience. They’ve built many websites and always have the best advice. When I’m not sure about what they’re doing, they take the time to explain their reasoning clearly, sometimes using analytical data.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The improved site, lauded internally and externally, has significantly increased user interaction. Buzzworthy's expert team inspired confidence throughout the project by listening and asking questions from the start. They also offered useful tactical advice that was subsequently implemented.

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 president and owner of All Pro Team Sports, a sporting goods uniform and equipment company. We’re located in Maryland but we service the entire country.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Buzzworthy Studio?

We needed help building a new website. We wanted a complete upgrade because we hadn't refreshed the site since we started nine years ago. We also wanted to create a website that would tell our story.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Buzzworthy spent a lot of time learning about us at the beginning of the project. They wanted to understand our goals so they could best attack them. We brainstormed on how we wanted the site laid out, the different pages we needed, and what were we looking to accomplish. The imagery we had on our original site was outdated, so they updated the site’s aesthetic. They thought a lot about how the site should flow and which colors should be featured on different areas of the home page as a user scrolls down. They also created plug-in features on our site to request a catalog, an online store, or a uniform design.

How did you come to work with Buzzworthy Studio?

I started the process by interviewing three companies. I’d seen Buzzworthy on social media, and it turns out that the owner is from my hometown. The difference between Buzzworthy and the two other companies was the attention to detail. Our website wasn't just an out of the box site to them; they wanted to personalize it and make it our own.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent between $10,000–$50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Work began in October 2017 and the site went live in June 2018. They continue to work with us on maintenance and SEO.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I can’t say if it’s a direct result of the new site, but our phones are ringing and orders are coming in. The volume of requests (catalog, online store, uniform design) is 5–10 times more than the previous site. So people are interacting with our site more so than in the past. In terms of the look and feel, people have said it looks comparable to the big athletic apparel companies when in reality we're still a small business.

How did Buzzworthy Studio perform from a project management standpoint?

They were professional and responsive, just very enjoyable to work with. They took ownership in the quality of work. They weren't going to put something out there that wasn't representative of their high standards. Also, if we wanted something but there was a better way to do it, they made those suggestions.

They were understanding and patient. Some of the project was reliant on me giving them what they needed before they could build. They were diligent about staying on my case, but much of the reason the site took so long to complete was because I was delayed in providing them copy and images.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their professionalism and communication was most impressive. If we ever needed anything, we would get a quick email reply or they would jump on a call. If we had a meeting scheduled, they were always on time. They're experts at what they do, so I was comfortable that they would lead us down the right path.
