BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the Marketing Specialist for a company that sells advertising to captive audiences in athletic recreational facilities across Canada.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Exaltus?

We hired Exaltus to search engine optimize our website, as well as to manage and promote our blog. Over the years, they have also produced a number of visual assets for us, including whiteboard videos, presentations, infographics, and cheat sheets.

What were your goals for this project?

First and foremost, we wanted to appear at the top of our search results for our most strategic keywords. We also wanted to attract more leads through our website from Google and social media.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Exaltus was referred to us by one of our advisors, who had worked with the President of Exaltus and always knew her to be smart, knowledgeable and to unfailingly deliver on her promises.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

Over the years, Exaltus has: • Managed our search engine optimization efforts • Created a content strategy for our blog, starting with the development of personas, which we’ve since used for marketing purposes across our organization. • Researched and written dozens of blog posts for us. • Published blog posts in wordpress, SEOing them and adding visuals. • Produced countless social media posts for us to use across our social channels. • Created a handful of infographics. • Produced multiple whiteboard videos. • Produced a campaign recap presentation and video. • Produced a professional cheat sheet for us to use as a lead magnet to win over subscribers. • Set us up with email marketing.

What was the team composition?

The owner of Exaltus has been my main contact but I know that Exaltus draws on the skills of various professionals, depending on the work required. For example, they have fantastic writers who research and write our blog posts. They also have professional illustrators, animators and voiceover artists to produce top notch videos.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We rank in the top three positions for our most important keywords, and often hold the top spot. Over the years, we’ve seen 200%year-over-year increases in organic traffic thanks to the content added and promoted on our blog. We have collected some visual assets that have fueled our social media efforts and shared with clients.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Exaltus is incredibly responsive to all of our requests. We never wait more than a couple of hours to hear back on a question. Also they are always very transparent about the progress we are making, and the areas that still need work, which makes it very easy to trust them.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We have a bond of trust with Exaltus because we always know they are looking out for us and have our best interests at heart. They always go above and beyond to deliver the results they promise. In that way, they feel like an extension of our in-house team.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I don’t think so!

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the President of a company that produces an interactive reading log and reading incentive program. We serve hundreds of thousands of children, parents, teachers, and librarians worldwide.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Exaltus?

We initially hired Exaltus to build our marketing website to promote our product. They were responsible for everything from design, to writing copy, to WordPress development, to search engine optimization. After the successful completion of that project, Exaltus became our trusted partner for all our marketing needs, including managing our blog and developing visual marketing assets such as presentations, infographics, and whiteboard videos.

What were your goals for this project?

We were a company of developers. We were strong technically, but not very good describing the benefits of using our program - let alone at describing attractive materials to help us convey our key messages in a compelling way. We needed a partner we could trust who would help us extract the key points we needed to communicate and present them in a professional way.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We met many vendors who claimed to be able to help us but somehow didn't feel comfortable moving forward with any of them. Some were too pricey. Others just didn't seem to get what we were trying to do. Exaltus immediately inspired confidence. They took the time to really listen to our objectives and had thoroughly researched our program. When we read their proposal, we immediately felt that we were in good hands and didn't hesitate to move forward.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

Over the years, Exaltus handled many projects for us:

  • Designed and developed 20+ page WordPress website
  • Created and managed every aspect of our blog
  • Produced eight videos (including whiteboard videos and demo videos)
  • Designed two presentations
  • Produced four infographics
  • Designed two brochures

We were as involved as we wanted to be in the projects. Most of the time, after working with them on the website, we were fairly hands-off because we knew they understood what we were about and we trusted them to the job.

What was the team composition?

I worked mainly with the owner of Exaltus, but -- depending on the project -- I know there were many other people involved behind the scenes. For example, for the whiteboard videos, there were professional cartoonists, voiceover artists, video animators, etc. They always had experts handling the more specialized tasks.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Ever since hiring Exaltus to redesign our website, the majority of our sales have come in through the site, many of them from people who found us on Google. We've gotten a lot of positive responses to our blog content. And our teachers and librarians have been very grateful for our marketing materials, which help them promote our program within their schools.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Working Exaltus is always easy. They are very responsive and organized. We manage most of our communication on SmartSheet and email, but they were also very happy to jump on a call when we needed it. They were always very responsive to our feedback.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They invested a lot of time in really understanding our objectives, our program, and our customers. Without that, I don't think the marketing materials they produced for us would have been as effective. I was also blown away by how versatile they were. It seems like there is not a type of marketing work they can't do!

Are there any areas for improvement?

If there are, I haven't found them yet. We love working with Exaltus.
