Focused entirely on helping our clients succeed

Calculated Marketing Services was founded in 2013 with one goal in mind… to help our clients succeed. While other companies were engulfed in figuring out how they could grow and succeed, we focused entirely on how we could help our clients grow and succeed through the use of digital marketing.

Our founder Cody Getchell started by putting himself through university operating a small used car dealership. He quickly learned that by using the power of digital marketing he could grow his business, and from there helping others do the same seemed like a completely natural fit. In the beginning, it was all about convincing business owners of the power of Google and social media, explaining why their various companies needed to not only be there but be investing in their digital brand. At the time that was the biggest hurdle for business owners… understanding the opportunity. In today’s market place things have shifted, people understand they need to be online, they just don’t know how to do. There are a lot of voices screaming we can do for you, and it causes confusion.

In the 6 years since we launched have helped over 300 different clients implement successful digital marketing strategies and continue to emphasize the education of our team so we are always up to date with the most cutting edge tools and techniques. We are constantly investing in new strategies and courses so that we are always at the top of the learning curve.

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 founder of a digital marketing company whose parent company is Success Marketing Solutions, Inc.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Calculated Marketing Services?

We wanted help with fulfilling certain services that we offer. We do have in-house capabilities but there were so many people who couldn’t afford our services. So, I wanted to find a solution that would solve this problem while still allowing us to make money.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We initially gave the team a difficult client and a small budget to see what they could come up with and to see if they would be a good fit. The client was pleased so we decided to continue working with Calculated Marketing Services. They primarily lead paid traffic efforts using Facebook and Google Ads for several accounts and we serve as the middleman between them and the clients.

They also work on accounts that are struggling. I assigned them one of these accounts and they worked on turning it around. They rewrote the ad copy and realized the client’s expectations.

What is the team composition?

We typically work with two people, one of them being Cody (Owner, Calculated Marketing Services).

How did you come to work with Calculated Marketing Services?

I connected with someone from Calculated Marketing Services on Facebook. I ultimately chose them because they demonstrated their capabilities clearly when I had calls with them. They also had video recommendations and testimonials from people I respect who were pleased with the milestones the team had reached and the tasks they had completed.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested between $80,000–$90,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in at least January 2019 and our engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Calculated Marketing Services has transformed paid traffic into profits for the clients. The results speak to the fact that we can indeed make an ROI while being fair to people. They’ve also turned failing campaigns into profitable ones in a short period of time.

Although the outcomes have been good, what’s more important is the interpretation of the results for the client. The team has been able to present clients with actual results as well as perceived or customer service value, which is helpful.

How did Calculated Marketing Services perform from a project management standpoint?

Communicating with them has been easy. If the message isn’t urgent, we communicate via Skype. If it is, we text or call. They update us at the end of every week, notifying us of elements that require immediate attention.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The team has been very flexible throughout the projects and has been willing to be part of the different steps of the processes. What I’m most impressed by is Cody’s ability to quickly identify the faults and gaps in unsuccessful campaigns and solve them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Nothing comes to mind right away. But, if there was a service that they could provide, it would be for them to be able to work directly with the client instead of going through me first. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Go through me then I’ll put you through to Calculated Marketing Services.

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 owner of a social media marketing agency that specializes in Facebook ads.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Calculated Marketing Services?

I hired them to assist with several services that include installing Facebook Pixels and Facebook Ads strategy.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Initially, they were helping me out with a lead generation company when I needed additional support. We worked on Facebook Ads for a software business that was receiving $12-$15 per lead. Recently, I brought on a few more clients in the e-commerce space. Cody (Facebook Ads Expert & Owner, Calculated Marketing Services) has been partnering with me on those ad accounts.

For the ad work, we sometimes design our own ads, and sometimes, Cody’s team gives us pictures to use. They deliver that service when we lack the creative that the client needs.

What is the team composition?

I’ve only worked with Cody.

How did you come to work with Calculated Marketing Services?

I was in a Facebook group for Facebook marketers, and I was looking for high-level contractors with the right experience. I interviewed a couple of them and talked to Cody. It seemed like Calculated Marketing Services was the best fit for my clientele.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested over $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Calculated Marketing Services in July 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our clients are happy when they receive great results and leads. For the software business, Cody brought the CPL down to $5. One of my current clients wanted a 1x return, and we’re seeing a 3.5x return. Calculated Marketing Services is exceeding expectations.

How did Calculated Marketing Services perform from a project management standpoint?

I communicate directly with Cody. We have a weekly meeting. If I need something right away, I can call or text him. He’s very responsive.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Calculated Marketing Services is excellent at communication. Whenever I need something, Cody usually answers. If he doesn’t, he will call me right back. Their team also delivers exceptional results.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could send out reports on how things are going or if they need more from me.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Have specific goals in mind for what they’re trying to reach. Clients should also have specific expectations when it comes to job duties.
