BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the Marketing Manager for an enterprise software solutions provider headquartered in Sydney, Australia. Our products and services to help organisations improve through-life data integrity, enterprise-wide visibility, item-level identification and traceability of physical assets and operational risk.

Our software platform is cloud and mobile-enabled and integrates with a wide-range of auto-ID, asset tags, fixed and mobile reader technologies, as well as primary business systems such as ERP’s and CMMS’s. As marketing manager I look after all marketing communications activities.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire CueBlocks?

Our company had undertaken a multi-year R&D project to re-engineer and launch a new cloud and mobile-enabled enterprise asset and risk traceability platform. As part of this, we wanted to make significant changes to our website strategy and refresh our brand identity. To date, we had maintained 3 separate marketing websites but made a decision to consolidate under the company brand, narrow the focus of our messaging, and forge stronger connections between all our product offerings.

There were also technical issues with our historical websites – they used different CMS’s which made maintenance inefficient, they were not mobile friendly and the code was not fully optimised for SEO. So it was time to invest in a new website. We do not have any in-house designers or website developers, so we needed to outsource the design of the user interface as well as the development of the code.

What were your goals for this project?

Our initial project goal was to launch a refreshed brand and all new SEO-optimised WordPress website which would integrate our complete product range into one, single digital resource showcasing our leading enterprise asset and risk intelligence products and capabilities.

An important function of the new website was also the integration of a blogging platform which would enable us to publish articles on various topics of interest to prospective customers, leverage this content on social media and other digital channels, underpinning our sales efforts and support our move to new web-based software delivery model.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Upfront, our company compiled an extremely comprehensive project brief and used this documentation to approach a number of web development agencies both in Australia and overseas. We conducted a broad search and very thorough vetting process and at every stage Cueblocks impressed our team with their technical knowledge, their professionalism and their genuine wish to support us within the constraints of our budget to the best of their ability.

Describe the project in detail.

Once we appointed CueBlocks as our web development partner we got straight into work. The initial project brief served us well as a discovery document so that we were all on the same page with respect to our goals and needs.

Due to the highly-technical and highly-specialised nature of our software, we took care of the website content, structure and information hierarchy internally, and asked CueBlocks to develop the wireframe mock-ups and modules for the website user interface which would be reviewed and approved internally on the client side, and then handed back for coding and implementation.

What was the team composition?

Initially we were liaising with the business owners and then once the project was underway we were appointed a project manager as well as a team of designers and developers. We used an online project communication tool called Basecamp which became an invaluable part of the project tracking and team communications and feedback loop.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The result of the project was the launch of comprehensive new website (over 175+ pages of critical content) which showcased all our products, use case solutions, industry sectors and services. The new design was purpose-built to ensure that regularly updated content was significantly more visible so that it would be true living platform from which we can engage more effectively with our target audiences.

We now also have a greater number of contact forms through which we get more of the right kind of leads. We continue to hear positive feedback on the usability, flow, and blog content on the site both from existing and potential customers.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Cueblocks were and are extremely responsive to emails. Throughout the course of the project, communication from all team members was clear and effective – which we greatly appreciate as an Australian-based software developer. Issues are worked through logically, methodically, and in a timely manner.

Cueblocks appreciate and understand our need to balance project objectives with the realities of budgets and costs and always come back with a range of options and practical solutions to help us achieve our goals within these constraints. As mention we used an online collaboration tool called Basecamp for all tasks and team communications.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

At every stage, Cueblocks has impressed us with their technical knowledge and their professionalism. And their genuine wish to support us within the tight constraints of our limited budget to the best of their ability. Their communications have been excellent and have made for a relatively smooth web development project journey.

Of course, as with any major web development project there are always going to be ups and downs, unforeseen issues crop up, and changes to project direction and course, however CueBlocks have always responded positively, logically, and in a transparent and timely manner.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Overall, our experience with CueBlocks has been thoroughly positive and we look forward to continuing our work with them in the future. One has to put a high degree of trust in their web development partner, for as they are accessing and working on a critical business, marketing and sales asset.

And for this we can recommend CueBlock’s services without hesitation. In the future we hope to be able to collaborate further on search engine optimisation improvement projects as well as mapping out a potential ecommerce platform strategy.

The team at CueBlocks performs an efficient service, keeping everything clear and transparent. Their proactiveness in dealing with requests is also impressive. They’re consistently on top of their projects.

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 director of Betty and Biddy, an online jewelry retailer.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with CueBlocks?

My skills are pretty limited when it comes to web design and development. If anything went wrong with our site, I wouldn’t be able to fix it. I needed assistance with those hidden fields that I had no clue about.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The team at CueBlocks performs management on my Shopify e-commerce site. During the week, I send any requests I have to their team. They log in and fix it, or assign someone to fix it.

Along with monthly management, their team runs my Google Analytics and Google Ads. They’ve also created a few graphics and banners for the website.

What is the team composition?

There are five to six people that work on different aspects. For Google, I have one point of contact, but usually, everything goes through Ravi (Business Development Manager, CueBlocks), and he’d give it to the most suitable person.

How did you come to work with CueBlocks?

CueBlocks was referred to me by a friend who used them previously for her online business.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve invested €20,000 (approximately $22,000 USD).  

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement with CueBlocks started in March 2015.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

To show the clicks and conversions, their team sends over monthly reports using Google Analytics. They keep everything transparent as to the work and results.

How did CueBlocks perform from a project management standpoint?

Their project management style is excellent. I find their team quite flawless. If I request anything, they deal with it right away. We use Basecamp, which allows me to keep an eye on all of the projects at any given time. We also communicate through email.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their efficiency in dealing with requests is impressive. I’ve never had to follow-up with them because they’re always on the ball.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, there’s nothing I’d have them improve.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Understand what you’re looking for before you take it to them. Have a bit of grip on what you want, so nothing is lost in translation.

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 one of the co-founders and CEO of a direct to consumer company for potted house plants.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with CueBlocks?

Our primary goal was to migrate our platform from Magento to Shopify. The secondary goal was to introduce product enhancements throughout the site.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

CueBlocks migrated our e-commerce platform from Magento to Shopify. Their team also enhanced existing features as well as introduced new features. We had our in-house designers manage design but the CueBlocks team was solely responsible for the technical implementation including frontend and backend work.

What is the team composition?

My main point of contact was the project manager. The size of the team depended on which phase of the project we were in. On average, I worked with 3–5 people during any given phase.

How did you come to work with CueBlocks?

I looked for an overseas team to help with this migration. I came across their profile via Clutch. In their reviews, folks mentioned that the team was involved, enthusiastic, and proactive in their approach to projects. We talked with qualified teams but there were a few qualities that stood out about CueBlocks. One quality was their focus on e-commerce, which was evident in their public profiles and our initial calls. Their team seemed to have a deep competency in e-commerce. Another quality was their understanding of Magento and Shopify. Their team was also enthusiastic about the project and did a thorough job understanding our business. The last quality was the price point. We were trying to balance finding a competent overseas team with a lean development budget. CueBlocks fit that mold.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent between $20,000–$30,000 with them so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with CueBlocks in August 2018. CueBlocks is still working with us on a few shorter-term projects.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We relaunched our platform successfully. Overall, we’re happy with what CueBlocks did. We asked them to build a complex e-commerce platform with a lot of rules. They delivered a product that was not only to specification but also went above and beyond.

The new platform has been live for about two months. We’ve seen a significant amount of traffic to the site, especially around the holidays, which we expected to be our busiest time of the year. The website has managed quite a bit of traffic and a number of conversions. Overall, I’m happy with the work their team did.

How did CueBlocks perform from a project management standpoint?

CueBlocks performed well. We gave them a strict deadline for the launch. Their team relaunched the entire platform in 2.5–3 months even with us making tweaks to the website as they built it. We used Basecamp to manage the project. Also, internally, we did quite a bit of organization upfront. We used Google Docs, Sheets, and Basecamp to manage and share information.  

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their technical competence is strong. If you present them with a broad or specific idea around a feature that you want to be developed, they have a keen ability to go and find solutions to that problem. That was refreshing for us because we didn’t have the time to go and show them how a feature should be implemented. Their team was able to execute solutions based on our ideas.  

Are there any areas they could improve?

I don’t have solid feedback right now. They have a well-rounded team. Where some individuals may have minor shortcomings, the entire team is available to supplement each other's skills.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

With any development team—especially one that’s overseas—be incredibly specific, detailed, and organized. Take the initiative to be extremely thorough in your documentation.

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 work for Greener Rural Initiatives. We’re supporting a farming production company called Badabon Harvest Pvt Ltd. We’re consulting for Badabon.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with CueBlocks?

We hired them to build a website. The website was for a company supporting marginal farmers producing organic foods. We wanted to highlight their spirit and how they’re working to improve their environment in spite of extenuating circumstances.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

CueBlocks developed the website from scratch. We had a concept of what we wanted the website to look like, and they worked around that. They included pictures showcasing their products. The logo had five colors, and we wanted to utilize those five colors. CueBlocks made our website reflect all of that.

We website uses WooCommerce as a sales platform, and it was built on WordPress. We didn’t have the budget for an app, so they built a progressive web app.

What is the team composition?

There were different aspects that they helped us setup and had multiple people working on it. We had a design team, a backend operating team, and a team helping us with Google Analytics. I don’t know the exact count, but there were definitely more than 10 people involved. We worked with Pancham (Co-Founder, President of Sales and Marketing, CueBlocks) and with the person leading the operations part.

How did you come to work with CueBlocks?

I live in the same city as CueBlocks' location. I’d seen their website and a couple of the ones they’d worked on, and I really liked the way they worked with concepts. When the opportunity came, they were the first name that popped into my mind. 

How much have you invested with them?

We were working with grant funding, therefore we were upfront about the fact that our budget was very small. CueBlocks provided us services that went above and beyond our limitations. We are very satisfied with the way that the team worked within our budget constraints.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with CueBlocks in July 2019, and the website went live in mid-September. The app was delivered in November.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our site has just gone live, and we’ve gotten a lot of positive customer feedback. Many people have started ordering through the site. It’s contributing to increased company sales.

How did CueBlocks perform from a project management standpoint?

I was pleasantly surprised, compared to my earlier experience working with a developer. They were very transparent. They laid out all the tasks involved in the beginning, detailing what everyone had to do. The process was monitored on a daily basis, and everyone involved got updates. They used Basecamp to track the project. It was the first time I’d used that app, and I found that it put everything into perspective. We got the whole picture at every point in time, which was very good for managing our expectations.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I found their pure professionalism and passion for doing what they believe is best for the client to be most impressive. They went above and beyond what we initially thought they’d be doing. I’ve never seen this level of professionalism in other developers I’ve worked with. That was very impressive, and I’d recommend them to everyone just for this.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They’re more critical of themselves than I am. We were new at software development, and we were upfront about that. We consulted with them about everything, such as where to buy the domain name. They were facing a problem with the hosting uptime and they shifted our site to another hosting service without charging us anything extra. It’s not something we were expecting them to do, but they still took care of it.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Clients should listen to them and be very clear about what their objectives are. CueBlocks will usually provide 2–3 options and ask what the client wants. They give the client what the client is asking for, and they actually take the time to understand what that is. It’s important that the client has a clear idea of what they want.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the founder and CEO of an e-commerce publishing company. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with CueBlocks?

We hired CueBlocks to provide Magento backend development and analytics services to our clients. The vendor needed to be very knowledgeable in Google Analytics, specifically certain constructs that are not easy to understand from the UI.  

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

CueBlocks translated our high-level expectations into features and then built and tested those features. This included custom ad-ons to Magento. They also delivered advanced analytics and e-commerce reporting support to our clients using Google Analytics. CueBlocks verified the UI setup we had done for our clients to ensure accuracy.

What is the team composition?

My team engaged with one tech lead, two developers, and two analysts. 

How did you come to work with CueBlocks?

Colleagues recommended CueBlocks. I had also known Pancham (CEO, CueBlocks) through a non-profit we were both previously active in.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent less than $5,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in 2017 and the partnership ended in 2018. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The site's coding and features performed well. As for analytics, revenue tracking worked as expected.  

How did CueBlocks perform from a project management standpoint?

CueBlocks documented everything in Basecamp. They were thorough communicators, which prevented misunderstandings. Although they operated in a different time zone, they were timely and well-organized.

What did you find most impressive about them?

CueBlocks met our software team’s high-level expectations. The company’s founders were very involved in both projects to assure the utmost quality. After experiencing unsatisfactory partnerships, especially overseas, we appreciated that CueBlocks did not try to oversell services or overpromise on deadlines.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We did not have any problems with the distance or time difference, but it would likely be helpful to other customers for them to have a US office.

Any advice for potential customers?

Make sure their skill set and experience correspond to the intended project.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I run a small language school that focuses on women and children.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire CueBlocks?

We needed to build a completely new website, in both Czech and English.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted a beautiful website that portrayed my offerings, plus a blog that helped my students and followers learn English. I wanted a modern, fresh, and colorful site that attracted my ideal target clientele.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

A mutual friend recommended them personally.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

I had an old website that wasn't mobile-friendly and didn't reflect my expanded services. We completely redesigned the graphics and the structure, made it faster and more user-friendly, and made it easier to navigate and sign up for courses. The last step was connecting MailChimp and polishing the newsletter. 

What was the team composition?

Many team members took care of different issues. Up to 10 people have been involved, but the owner has always been in charge. Other members are in charge of specific tasks like graphic design, newsletter formatting, technical issues, and English translation.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

My students say that the new website perfectly reflects what we do, so I'm more than happy with the graphic design and blog. They included tons of visuals and a colorful, beautiful homepage. I finally have the website I have always wanted. They were a great help.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We arranged everything through the owner and project manager, first in-person and then through online channels like Messenger, Skype, email, and Google Docs. 

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I love their graphic designs and the fact that they can work remotely with someone across the globe. It's extremely impressive. Their work is always professional, and they always find the best solutions.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I'm happy. Some deadlines have been a little overdue, but they have a lot going on, and they handle many tasks. We solved this issue once we spread the work across the team, and the team always works fast.

I am the CEO and co-founder of a membership service that rents luxury designer jewelry for 29 dollars a month. Members can hang onto their jewelry for as long as they want and can exchange pieces as often as they desire.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with CueBlocks?

We were looking to develop a unique and logistically complex business model. We approached CueBlocks with an MVP and tasked them with figuring out a frontend and backend system that would allow us to manage a multitude of stock keeping units (SKUs) and different types of subscription plans. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

CueBlocks has essentially served as our entire software engineering team for well over a year now. Providing for our tech needs, they've been doing all of our buildouts, managing all of our technology needs from SEO to both frontend and backend development. 

When we originally hired CueBlocks, we had a bare-bones MVP that another freelance developer had helped us build. Under the hood, it was very disorganized and had several bugs and other issues. We provided them with wireframes and designs we'd made ourselves, although they've helped in that area as well. Technologies they've used include PHP and Laravel. 

We put off hiring an in-house tech team, or even any internal engineers, because CueBlocks has capably taken on all those responsibilities on their own. 

What is the team composition? 

Since the beginning, we've been in touch with about 5–10 people from CueBlocks in different capacities. 

How did you come to work with CueBlocks?

CueBlocks was referred to us by someone who was supporting our marketing. 

How much have you invested with them?

We've spent about $75,000–$100,000 so far. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I can’t disclose exact metrics, but I can say that we have been growing consistently. Ever since we brought CueBlocks on board, we've seen an upward trajectory in our business.

I've been extremely impressed with the quality of CueBlocks' work. They've really done an amazing job. After hearing negative stories about overseas developers, we were reluctant to work with one, but they've been great in all regards. 

How did CueBlocks perform from a project management standpoint?

CueBlocks was excellent from a project management standpoint. They were extremely organized, communicated very effectively, and met all of the deadlines. They were extremely clear about what they needed from us to complete these projects in a timely manner. 

The vast majority of our communication has taken place through Basecamp. It's proven to be the easiest way to handle project management considering all the moving parts in our project. If something is too severe or pressing to explain via Basecamp effectively, we call them on the phone or use two-way screen sharing to solve the issue. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

CueBlocks' professionalism and clear, effective communication skills differentiate them from the competition. They can handle complex tasks that are less than straight forward. Whenever we’ve needed to figure out a solution, they’ve demonstrated creativity. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

The only minor scheduling issue wasn't one they could control.  It would've been great to be in the same time zone, but that comes with the territory of working with a team abroad.

Feedback summary: 

CueBlocks produced outstanding graphic, web, and print designs. A cut above the national industry standard, their brand assets and e-commerce site look markedly unique. Consumers regularly provide enthusiastic feedback. The spirited team offered creativity, patience, and flexibility. 

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 co-founder and director of Gunsberg. Our beverage company just launched a new ginger ale in India. We’re in the process of coming up with new offerings. By the end of the year, we aim to sell 5-6 more carbonated drinks.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with CueBlocks?

We needed a vendor to help us with our branding.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We approached CueBlocks with a brief that described our vision for the brand. They gave us a detailed questionnaire to fill out. From then on, we had minimal involvement other than providing regular feedback and input.

CueBlocks developed our e-commerce website on Shopify. They pretty much nailed it on their first attempt. Our digital marketing efforts include SEO and PPC campaigns. They also manage and regularly create posts for social media marketing (SMM), which is split 60/40 between Instagram and Facebook.  

Our project was very design-intensive. CueBlocks conceptualized our brand language, logo, and all the beverage packaging. We went through 20 different iterations for the labels because it’s such an important aspect. Most of the design work is complete at this point, but they’ll continue helping us iterate labels for all the new beverage flavors we plan to release. 
 
What is the team composition? 

About 10-12 people from CueBlocks are involved in our project overall. We mostly interact with the project managers. 

How did you come to work with CueBlocks?

We noticed a product on a shelf with packaging work CueBlocks had created for another client.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $40,000-$45,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together since February 2018.
 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

CueBlocks delivered fantastic designs and a simple e-commerce platform. We keep hearing from customers that CueBlocks’ packaging and website look world-class, very international. No other regional company could have delivered the same quality and standard of work.

There’s been an outstanding overall response to their contributions. CueBlocks accomplished exactly what we requested. Their work is much different than standard designs in the market. I’m optimistic about where they can take our company going forward. 
 
How did CueBlocks perform from a project management standpoint?

The process is relatively seamless. We use Basecamp as a tool, and we haven’t had any trouble. Most of the time, they rank above their call of duty. We had very strong opinions about how the labels should look. Even though we might not be the easiest clients, CueBlocks is always very patient with us. They kept showing us more iterations and options until we finally found exactly what we wanted. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

CueBlocks is a young and energetic company. We’ve had a great response from the enthusiasm they apply to our business. Especially in the past month and a half, their work has been very well received. Everybody’s been raving about it. We’re very excited about our ongoing association with CueBlocks. I feel they can really take us to the next level. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

The price point is a bit high compared to other agencies in India. Based on the quality of work, though, it’s fair enough.

Feedback summary: 

Though recently launched, the website has already had a positive impact on the company. The team managed the project excellently, communicating smoothly and paying close attention to detail throughout, particularly during the design phase.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the founder of Retro Days, an e-commerce website that sells vintage-inspired clothes.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire CueBlocks?

I was doing this business offline and through Instagram, but soon realized I need a website to showcase the products. I hired them to design and develop the site.

What were your goals for this project?

To spread the word and create more awareness our the company in our market, which is more inclined toward fast fashion.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

A friend of mine used to work for them, so I had heard good things about the company. I'd seen their work and visited their offices. I really liked their company culture too, so they were the first company that crossed my mind and I didn't look any further.

Can you go into detail about the services they provided and the scope of the project?

The main focus was to create an attractive yet user-friendly website, with a touch of retro. A lot of attention was required in the design process, and I gave examples of websites that I liked. I was given four designs, all of which were very unique. They built an amazing website for me, and also helped with copywriting and social media.

What was the team composition?

There was always two to three people actively involved. They bring other members on board if needed.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It's recently launched, but already there is a lot of traffic to the site and my sales have gone up. It's too early to comment on the impact, but it definitely looks positive.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

We're based in the same city so project management was fairly easy. I could have a meeting with them every day if I wanted to, but that wasn't required. We mostly interacted on emails and calls, or had meetings. They went out of their way to help me with whatever I needed.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

This is the first time I've outsourced work and I was skeptical that they'd understand my vision. However, I had no issues. In fact, they really understood it, and provided me with a lot of guidance.

Are there any areas where they can improve?

I can't think of anything. They’re very understanding and helpful—I can't think of a better company to work with.

Feedback summary: 

CueBlocks produces measurable returns. Providing a full range of services, they’re highly flexible and able to quickly adapt to new tasks. They provide regular updates, and thorough communication makes them more dependable than rival outsourcing partners.

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 Director for Buuuk, a development and design company based out of Singapore.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with CueBlocks?

When we launched in 2008, we were one of the only app development companies in Singapore. We didn’t need marketing services in the beginning and got by primarily through word-of-mouth. Since then, however, the market has become more competitive, so we needed to put more effort into online marketing.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Their main focus is digital marketing, providing search engine optimization and ensuring our website ranks among the appropriate keywords. They assist with the advertising surrounding any new product launches and conduct market research for our paid ads on social media platforms like LinkedIn and Twitter.

They’ve helped us in a number of areas. They've provided design work for our website, copywriting, assisted with the creation of a blog, and organized our social calendar.

What is the team composition?

We always have one or two people actively involved who serve as primary points of contact. These are the people we generally talk to, though they’ll bring other team members onto calls as needed. If we need copywriting, for instance, they’ll include their copywriter in our phone call.

How did you come to work with CueBlocks?

I'm from the same town where CueBlocks is based in India and actually helped launch their company. When we decided to invest in digital marketing, CueBlocks was the first agency I contacted.

We initially evaluated two or three vendors to ensure we hired the best option. We gave them each small tasks, but eventually phased the others out in favor of CueBlocks.

How much have you invested with them?

We spend between $300–$500 a month, on top of some initial setup costs. In total, we’ve invested between $7,000–$8,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in September 2014 and our relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve seen returns on our investment and in general they’ve been very easy to work with. We continue to work with them because they’re a good fit for us, and we actually plan to expand our marketing in the coming year to become more aggressive.

We've also recommended CueBlocks to a number of people, and they’ve all given us positive feedback about their experiences.

How did CueBlocks perform from a project management standpoint?

Our needs are fairly simple, but they’ve been fantastic. We communicate primarily through Skype and email, though they were also willing to work through our Slack channel, as that’s our preferred platform. They provide regular reports and it’s always easy to get in touch with them.

They’re also flexible. We recently developed a new website and asked CueBlocks to help us strategize content. They did so immediately, working intensely for three weeks to ensure the site was ready for launch.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Because we’re based in Singapore, we were initially concerned that an India-based company would have difficulty understanding our local market. I’ve worked with a number of outsourcing companies and it always comes with challenges.

However, this hasn’t been the case with CueBlocks. Their thorough communication skills gave us confidence in their abilities. We’ve never had to repeat our goals, as they take time to understand our priorities.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Obviously things would be easier if they were sitting next to us in our office, but we’ve had nothing but positive experiences since hiring them.
