Coalition Technologies has done good work so far and their communication is exceptional. In addition to sending detailed emails with all of the data pertaining to the project, the team has done work beyond the business’ expectations. Overall, they have the right people and tools to deliver.

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 and president of Kanavia Organics, a company that sells organic CBD products.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Coalition Technologies?

We needed an SEO company to help us with our website. Since we’re a new company, we needed help.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Coalition Technologies stepped in and told me what I needed as the company owner. In addition to making revisions to the website and giving recommendations, they also did some backlinking work. They worked on the content, reviews, suggestions, and details of the website.

What is the team composition?

Our main points of contact have been Abe (Digital Producer) and Scot (Marketing Digital Producer).

How did you come to work with Coalition Technologies?

I came across them after doing some research.

How much have you invested with them?

We spend $1,800 per month.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working with Coalition Technologies since December 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They’ve contributed quite a bit to our website, which I’m pleased about. The traffic to the website has increased over the past five months, which may be due to our increased social media efforts. Coalition Technologies told us that it will take 6–12 months for the effects of their work to show. 

How did Coalition Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

Their communication is excellent. The team arranges times for phone discussions and sends detailed emails about numbers and graphs. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re doing everything within their power to help our company propel forward. When I hired them, I thought they were just going to get the website to be visible on Google. So it was a pleasant surprise when I realized that they were also working on the website itself. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I have no suggestions. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Trust that Coalition Technologies is going to do the best work for your company because they have the tools and the right people to evaluate the needs of the company and its website. They’re great communicators, and they’ll do everything right every step of the way.

Feedback summary: 

Although it’s still early in the campaign, the site ranks higher on SERPs and online sales are up. Coalition Technologies is a trustworthy and reliable resource, resulting in a strong partnership. They’ve kept their partners updated through bi-weekly meetings and regular communication.

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 grain-free snack company. We make soft-baked, grain-free granolas. We sell primarily to grocery stores and we have about 600 points of distribution today.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Coalition Technologies?

E-commerce or direct to consumer is about 5% of our overall business, and that’s why I engaged with Coalition Technologies. We hired them to grow our e-commerce presence and grow the sales.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They worked on our direct-to-consumer website, PPC ads, and social ads. They came in and did an audit on the website to see how it was performing, how it was ranking, and to determine the domain authority. From there, we put a plan together to rank higher, gain backlinks, and add more copy to our site.

They helped configure our Google Ads. We had Google Analytics set up, but they put the campaign together. On top of that, they did some paid social ads for Facebook and Instagram.

What is the team composition?

There are two continuous people I work with, and they bring in people from their team as needed. Sometimes that’s a copywriter or an email marketer. So they have a bigger team than those I work with directly.

How did you come to work with Coalition Technologies?

I’m a part of a group, and one of our board members is in my industry and works with e-commerce. I know their team really well and work with them all the time, so I told them that I was looking to grow my direct to consumer business. They highly recommended Coalition Technologies.

When I first reached out to them, I really liked them. They’re super transparent and are upfront about their strengths and weaknesses. As a result, I felt very comfortable with them. I talked to them for a year before signing an agreement. They even did some free work for me. They did a full audit, gave me the results, and then they followed up with me. They were a trustworthy resource and it didn’t seem like they were trying to sell me on anything.  

How much have you invested with them?

I’ve spent just over $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in February 2020 and it’s ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The ads just recently went live, so it’s a little to early to tell how they’re doing in terms of ad spend and our ROI. However, we can see the impact on SEO in general. We’re already starting to rank higher on search result pages. Turning on Google shopping helps us appear more when customers are looking for products like ours.

We’ve seen a huge lift in our online sales. Compared to last year, our sales are up by 300%. Of course, more people are shopping online because of the COVID-19 pandemic, so it’s hard to know the direct impact.

How did Coalition Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

Overall, they have really good people. They form relationships with clients and are super transparent. We have bi-weekly phone calls, where they tell us about the traffic, highlight trends, and propose ways for us to shift our strategy. They also use Basecamp to track everything and flag things that I need to approve. It’s very effective.

What did you find most impressive about them?

It goes back to their transparency. I’ve worked with a couple of different agencies, and sometimes we don’t know why they’re doing something, or we’ve questioned whether or not it’s worth the cost. Whereas Coalition Technologies is very forthcoming and keeps us informed.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I don’t think they’re the best with paid social, SEO is much better. It’s still early, but based on what I’m seeing, their broad reach strategy for social advertising wasn’t very effective.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Respond to them because they throw a lot at you. You’ll need to review a lot of changes and their copy, which can be overwhelming. I always go in and deal with it right away to keep the ball rolling.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Michael Hinck: I’m the director of public affairs of a medical organization.

Xavia Malcolm: And I’m the assistant director of the same network.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Coalition Technologies?

MH: We were building websites without thinking about how they’d attract traffic. We needed help with SEO. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

MH: We started a series of lengthy telephone meetings where we dove deeply into the goals of our hospital, website, and services. Coalition Technologies then helped us build a strategy that focused on them primarily. 

Their team then identified deadlinks and errors on the site, along with title tags, meta descriptions, and keywords to drive more traffic to our site. They addressed some of the structural errors we had, including link repetition and image optimizations to speed up the site. 

XM: The website is built in WordPress; Coalition Technologies enhanced it and added some plugins like Moz to optimize it. They redesigned the home page a little bit and cleaned a few things up.

What is the team composition?

MH: We work with two main people: Sarah and Luis (Digital Producers, Coalition Technologies). There are also copywriters on the team.

How did you come to work with Coalition Technologies?

MH: We met with and interviewed a few different companies about this project. Some of the ones we considered proposed that they identify the things to fix but have us make the fixes. We weren’t experienced in backend code, so we found it welcoming to have Coalition Technologies identify the bugs and then do the work themselves. 

How much have you invested with them?

MH: We've spent about $50,000–$100,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

MH: The partnership started in April 2019 and is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

MH: Coalition Technologies gives us reports on how our pages are ranking compared to where we were before. We’ve definitely seen a lot of improvements: pages that were previously unranked are now showing up on the first or second pages of Google search results. We’re also seeing steady growth from organic search. 

We’ve learned from them about SEO as well, like how to use keywords and how to really run a website. We lack in-house talent in SEO and have gained a lot of knowledge from their services that we hope to one day apply on our own.

How did Coalition Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

XM: Luis and Sarah are very hands-on and patient in explaining the concepts and procedures. They’re also forthcoming in their opinion in a constructive way. Overall, they were excellent project managers. 

MH: We meet with them every other Tuesday over the phone to go over progress. Our initial conversations were lengthy, but now we’ve got it down to 30–45 minutes. We also have an email group through Basecamp through which they constantly send us work for us to approve. 

We have just a constant flow of communication: we get emails every day, and whenever we need to get a hold of them, we can pick up the phone. It was rough at first as we got to know each other, but it’s become very streamlined.

What did you find most impressive about them?

XM: Coalition Technologies has very good listeners. Sarah, in particular, listens extremely well. She takes our concerns into consideration. If we don’t understand something fully, she takes the time to break things down and paint a vivid picture of what we need to achieve and how we can get there. I give kudos to both Sarah and Luis for being able to do that.

MH: I’d also add that I don’t think they’ve ever said no to any of our requests, no matter how silly they might be. We also use them as a sounding board. There are times where we ask them for their opinions on how we should tackle something, and they’ll answer honestly.

Are there any areas they could improve?

MH: The one thing I’d say is that sometimes, the constant communication results in an overload of communication. Sometimes, as well, there has also been confusion about the progress and completion of certain things.

Any advice for potential customers?

MH: I’d recommend complete transparency. They really got to know who we were and what we were trying to do. They didn’t come in with a preconceived notion or a template to fit us in; they customized their strategy to fit our goals.

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 business development manager of A-List Builders. I’m in charge of marketing, sales, and managing our online presence. We’re a full-service construction company and general contractor. We also work with designers and architects. Primarily, we focus on single-family homes and belong to one of the hottest markets for home remodeling.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Coalition Technologies?

We had an existing website and hired them to redesign and develop a new one. Initially, we hired freelancers to develop our platform, but nothing was getting done so Coalition Technologies took over.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Coalition Technologies built and launched our website using WordPress. As the final step, I need to go in and upload photos and content. Their team also provides SEO services. They conduct link building as well as write our blogs and articles in efforts to increase our site traffic.

What is the team composition?

I’ve worked with about five people on their team. However, my main points of contact are Ryan (Marketing Digital Producer Team Lead, Coalition Technologies) and Meagan (Digital Producer Trainee, Coalition Technologies).

How did you come to work with Coalition Technologies?

My company started working with them before I came. We initially hired them for SEO services. However, it didn’t make sense to perform SEO efforts for our old website. So, we pulled Coalition Technologies back from performing SEO efforts, and switched over to web development.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested between $25,000–50,000.

What is the status of this engagement?
The partnership began in October 2018 and is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The website is live and it looks amazing. Ben (Owner, A-List Builders) is very picky and Coalition Technologies delivered on every detail as far as layout and aesthetics go. SEO efforts are just kicking off as well, so we’ll see how things are in a couple of weeks. We’ll test it soon by conducting searches.

I’d like to highlight that Tess (Copy Strategist, Coalition Technologies) is amazing. The content she writes for our blog is fantastic. Coalition Technologies is one of my favorite companies we’ve worked with, as far as B2B goes. Their team works hand-in-hand with ours. They’re great at pushing content out and getting our face out there. We’re just at the beginning, but it’s exciting to see what our results will be.

How did Coalition Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

We use Basecamp as our project management tool. I found that I like this platform better than the one my company internally uses. Coalition Technologies is very responsive and helpful. If we request a change, it’s usually completed by the next day. Their team implements same-day responses and has a hands-on approach to collaboration. There’s never a lapse in communication, and that’s very vital.

I’m not very knowledgeable about web development, but their team speaks to me in ways that I can easily understand. This was the case when they taught me how to upload photos using WordPress. They explain and answer all of my questions.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re on top of everything. Ryan is fantastic at being the lead project manager. I can’t compliment him enough. They hit all the targets in terms of achieving our requested designs and functionalities. Overall, I’m very happy with them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

There’s nothing I can think of. They’ve helped us so much and have never dropped the ball. I would speak very openly and constructively if I had complaints, but I don’t.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I’d advise them to know what their goals are. If you’re going to hire them, make sure your website is finished and ready. If it’s not, consider hiring them to finish it.

At Green Gone we sell detox kits and associated products. I am the director of marketing.

For what projects/services did your company hire Coalition Technologies?

We hired Coalition for help with our SEO and after a couple months we also hired them for help with our PPC.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to improve our websites traffic and also get our Google and Bing adwords back up and running.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I researched many SEO companies. I narrowed it down to a few and had a call with each of them. Coalition stood out the most and we felt like they were exactly what we were looking for.

Describe the project in detail.

Our SEO was taken over by Coalition and they began reworking our website. They added new copy improved, our loadtime, and various other fixes across our website to improve our SEO.

Next they worked on our PPC, we got back onto Google adwords and Google shopping. Coalition continues to improve our website and adwords every month.

We have a couple digital producers we talk to monthly. There are also copy strategist and others who work on our site but we normally are not in contact with.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We started ranking much higher in our keywords after 2-3 months. Our website speed, design, and layout has all improved. They have saved us a lot of time since we did not have to do any of that website improvements ourself.

PPC has been good so far, we have seen an noticeable increase in sales and we look forward to seeing it continue to increase this year.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We use basecamp to communicate, that has been really effective and easy to use for everyone.

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 VP of strategic directions and special projects at Katydid.com.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Coalition Technologies?

We asked Coalition Technologies to help us out with our SEO. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Coalition Technologies does a variety of SEO services for us. They wrote and rewrote content on both our websites—the wholesale side and the direct-to-consumer side—including more than 15 blogs. They’ve researched keywords, made recommendations, and added widgets. We only do organic search, but PPC is on our roadmap. 

What is the team composition?

There are three point-people on our project, but we have access to their 20-person team if needed.

How did you come to work with Coalition Technologies?

We used to work with an SEO firm backed in 2011, but when Google’s Penguin and Panda updates came up, we saw disastrous results. Several sources referred Coalition Technologies to us. They had done a couple of websites, two of which belonged to competitors of ours. We had actually seen them move up in organic search rankings on Google and Bing. 

Those two reasons are why I called Charles (Digital Strategist, Coalition Technologies) 4–5 months ago. The negotiation and quote process took no longer than a week, and the actual project kicked off 2–3 weeks later.

How much have you invested with them?

The first few months, we spent about $6,000–$7,000 per month. Now we pay about $3,000–$4,000 monthly.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in July 2019, and the project is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We track how many keywords we can place on the first page of organic search results. To date, we have 4–5 keywords on the first page for our retail side and 7–12 on the wholesale side. For 4–5 months work, we’re pleased with that.

How did Coalition Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

They do extremely well. Every month, we receive a report with the most important SEO metrics we needed to know. We also have an hour-long call every two weeks. That’s followed by a report that summarizes what we talked about, including their recommendations for us and a to-do list for both sides. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

Coalition Technologies has really good people who know their stuff. I haven’t been disappointed yet in their performance. There’s not an issue I haven’t seen them overcome yet. Finding a third-party vendor that you can work with is really special. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, we have a great relationship. I can ask for things and let them know what I think. When I asked them to include a few more things in their report for us, they did that. There’s not much I would change about them. 

Any advice for potential customers?

Before you engage with any SEO vendor, think about what you’re trying to get out of the relationship. Have your questions and budget prepared.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a conglomerate of numerous health brands. I'm the vice president of e-commerce, and I represent those brands in digital and ecommerce aspects across all our retail partners and digitally owned properties.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Coalition Technologies?

We wanted to bring a website for a specific brand up to the newest and best standards. Our old site was behind the times for both usability and speed.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They provided the most current software, and they updated our UX. They leveraged existing creative assets to build the new site from scratch. We provided them with some websites that we liked, and they made suggestions for the UX. They created some wireframes for our approval, then we moved forward with development.

They used Shopify to build the site, and they made sure it was mobile responsive and user-friendly. The proper navigation is there, and they ensured key products were highlighted.

What is the team composition?

At most, we worked with a team of six. We had one main point of contact who remained constant throughout the entire engagement.

How did you come to work with Coalition Technologies?

I am a member of an e-commerce advisory group. Coalition's CEO participated in a conference call for the group, and his company came highly recommended. I interviewed several companies, but I felt that Coalition would be the best fit for us. They were affordable and highly experienced, and they offered other useful services that could help take us to the next level after the site was completed.

How much have you invested with them?

In total, we spent about $27,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in April 2019, and the website launched at the end of October 2019. The engagement is currently paused, but we may use them again in 2020 after our budget is set.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our internal team raves about the new site. We're at the top of the line, and we're very proud of the results. We have great comments from customers and distributors who use the website, and everyone thinks Coalition did a great job. Products are easily searchable, and it's very easy for users to find answers to common questions.

How did Coalition Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?

Our account manager was very responsive, and she always got back to us immediately. Coalition used Basecamp to track milestones, and they made themselves accountable for every task. They were communicative, and we always knew where we stood within the project.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their work is extremely high-quality. They never take shortcuts, and they were extremely thorough and detail-oriented at every step. We felt very comfortable with them, and we knew we were in good hands.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Everything went so well, and I don't have any constructive criticism for them. Every issue was fixed to our satisfaction, and they often went above and beyond to deliver solutions quickly.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Stay engaged with the project. Whenever questions come up, answer them in a quick manner. They will take your information and act on it immediately. Be prepared to keep up with them; they're very good at what they do.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Our company has invented a couple unique ancillary products within the cannabis space. I'm the inventor and CEO, I worked directly with Coalition as the point of contact.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Coalition Technologies?

To help improve our site's rankings, aesthetics, SEO, quality, etc. To put it simply... everything.

What were your goals for this project?

To increase our revenue, rankings, and make the leap from a start up quality looking site to a professional one.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I interviewed 6-8 different SEO firms all around the country and selected Coalition because they had 100s of case studies showing time and time again that they get the results you want. Most other companies show you 3-5 tops.. like if you try something 100+ times you're probably gonna get it right a few times. Consistency is key!

Describe the project in detail.

The onboarding went incredibly smoothly, we had monthly meetings to discuss priorities, what was accomplished, and what was going to be worked on. It was easy to get a hold of people when necessary and our site has come such a long way it's amazing.

What was the team composition?

The team had two main points of contact that I would do monthly calls with, and then several people working along side them in the background for copy, links, outreach, design, etc. I spoke with the same people throughout my campaign which is a testament to the positive workplace they have. Everyone was incredibly skilled at what they did and it showed in their work.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Not going into any details BUT I will say I'm really happy with the results I got, I've recommended them to other companies, and will be back for all future SEO and web work.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Great. I would get responses back the same day, and any issues were addressed immediately and professionally. I definitely had a couple time sensitive help requests that they went above and beyond for and delivered perfectly.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They consistently were above to improve our website every month we worked with them. A lot of SEO companies are going to say whatever they can to get you to sign and commit to them, they were never pushy and simply let their work speak for themselves. Everyone was incredibly knowledgable, prompt, professional yet personal, and a pleasure to work with. I honestly don't have any bad things to say.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, keep doing what you're doing Coalition!
