    Video & Photo Production - Cousin's Maine Lobsterq

    Social Media Marketing - Wow Wow Hawaiian Lemonade

    Wow Wow Hawaiian Lemonade is a growing chain of lemonade stands based out of the Hawaiian islands that now reaches from Japan to Arizona.

    With their expansion, they were looking to solidify their brand positioning as they continued to expand.  They first came to us to develop a social media campaign.

    We created an initial campaign focusing

    on the local and adventurous feel of their Hawaiian origins. We used their current positioning and a series of promotions in combination with a social media based campaign. In conjunction with their campaign, we went to work creating them a network of local, Hawaiian brand reps. To fully capture the feel of the brand, we negotiated for influencers to submit video and photos of their own island adventures. We then edited and crafted content to be used on Instagram and YouTube.

    After a few months of work, we had established and maintained a brand rep network of around 40 Hawaii-based influencers. Additionally, we were able to run fresh video content every 24 hours, 7 days per week on Instagram. 100% of the content provided through brand rep submissions. The result was massive user engagement, with Instagram views going up by 400%.

    BACKGROUND

    Introduce your business and what you do there.

    I am the owner of an investment firm.

    What challenge were you trying to address with Huntington Pacific Media?

    We were looking for help with our digital marketing, including on our social media.

    SOLUTION

    Huntington Pacific Media manages our social media accounts, creating content and handling their postings. Their team offered other digital marketing services through developing funnels for our business. We receive performance reports detailing results from our social media accounts.

    What is the team composition?

    We have a main point of contact but work with a team of three. 

    How did you come to work with Huntington Pacific Media?

    We had a bad experience with a previous firm and were looking to work with someone new. After searching for digital marketing firms and conducting a series of interviews we selected Huntingtin Pacific Media. 

    How much have you invested with them?

    So far, we've spent $50,000 over the past five months, but expect to spend a little over $90,000 by the end of the year.

    What is the status of this engagement?

    Our ongoing relationship with Huntington Pacific Media began in February 2019.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    We’ve seen positive results across the metrics we track through Sprout, including our amount of followers and our engagement rate. Feedback from customers has shown that the quality of our social media presence has improved since making the switch to Huntington Pacific Media.

    Their project management has been fine. They are always quick to respond. Their regular reports and Sprout help us track the effects of their work.  

    What did you find most impressive about them?

    We appreciated their level of responsiveness. 

    Are there any areas they could improve?

    Huntington Pacific Media is doing a great job. At times, it feels as though they could use more people on their team. Since they’re a growing team, this is a big engagement for them. They put forth quality work despite their small size.

    Do you have any advice for potential customers?

    Outlining your goals and expectations early on will lead to a more productive partnership.

    Project summary: 

    Huntington Pacific Media was contracted for digital marketing work including SEO and PPC, web development, and search engine marketing (Google, Bing, Yahoo). This review was originally 0.5-stars for the initial delivery, but updated by the client on April 16, 2019.

    Feedback summary: 

    Although Huntington Pacific Media delivered key items as promised, the relationship was terminated due to inconsistent communication and a failure to bring new ideas to the table. Huntington Pacific Media would benefit from creating more thorough contracts and placing a higher priority on transparency.

    The client submitted this review online.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    I’m the manager of a med spa.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire Huntington Pacific Media?

    We needed SEO and other digital marketing services including media editing and graphic design.

    What were your goals for this project?

    We needed someone to manage our online presence.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    We researched Clutch reviews.

    Describe the scope of their work in detail.

    They were responsible for SEO and Google AdWords, website development, and Yelp, Google, and Bing management.

    What was the team composition?

    We worked with Jordan (CEO, Huntington Pacific Media) and a small remote team.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    They never followed through on the agreed upon scope of work, providing only excuses as to why the work wasn’t completed. We pulled the plug after 60 days.

    How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

    Once we signed the contract, we saw little to no work done on their side, and they didn’t answer our calls for weeks on end. We were greatly disappointed. If you value transparency in your marketing group, HPM is not for you.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    Their ability to convince clients to sign contracts is outstanding.

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    Providing a granular contract with specific repercussions could hold them accountable for the work they say they’ll deliver. Currently, they only offer a one-page scope of work. I advise anyone thinking of working with them to include a refund option in the contract.

    Updated Review

    This review was updated on April 16, 2019, by the client. The original star ratings were: Overall – 0.5, Quality – 0.5, Schedule – 3, Cost – 0.5, NPS – 0.5. New content is below:

    How did your relationship with the vendor evolve?

    The company has since provided items—such as backlinks—that I paid for, but weren’t initially delivered. Ultimately, I terminated the relationship because the team didn’t bring any new marketing ideas or work to the table.

    How was project management handled?

    The team did listen to my requests, but the implementations were unsatisfactory.

    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 an e-commerce business called icowhide.com.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with Huntington Pacific Media?

    We’re a newer business, so we wanted help acquiring customers. We hired Huntington Pacific Media to provide Facebook marketing support.  

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    They created my Facebook marketing campaign for scratch. To have the most significant impact, they tested audiences with several ads. After identifying the right audience and the most effective ads, we worked together to find the most successful choice. To make this decision, we gave them key information about our existing Google Ads campaigns. They use Facebook Ads Manager to maintain the efforts.

    What is the team composition?

    My main point of contact is Jordan (CEO, Huntington Pacific Media) and Stephen (Digital Project Manager, Huntington Pacific Manager) also works on our project.

    How did you come to work with Huntington Pacific Media?

    We both worked in the same co-working office space, and I’d heard Jordan working with several clients for their marketing needs. After speaking with him about my business, we decided to collaborate.

    How much have you invested with them?

    We’ve spent $15,000 on the project.

    What is the status of this engagement?

    The engagement began in December 2018 and is ongoing.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    My business has experienced consistent growth since we began working with Huntington Pacific Media. We’ve seen significant improvements and doing a Facebook campaign saved us money compared to our existing Google Ads account. The model they’ve created for us is scalable and performs well.

    How did Huntington Pacific Media perform from a project management standpoint?

    Huntington Pacific Media always keeps me informed, and I know what to expect out of the engagement. They’ve delivered all results on schedule. We communicate through text, email, phone calls, and in-person meetings several times a month. Their team provides monthly and video reports that explain their progress and analyze the ad's performance.

    What did you find most impressive about them?

    Their positive attitude and deep knowledge within their industry make them a valuable partner to grow with. I’m pleased with how the project is going. They’re invested in our success, and it feels like a true partnership.

    Are there any areas they could improve?

    As long as we can continue scaling and adapting together, we’ll be happy with their services. We’re optimistic that they’ll continue managing our project well even as they work with more customers over time.

    Do you have any advice for potential customers?

    The more information you share with their team, the better the partnership will be. Stay engaged with the engagement and remain involved with the relationship. The way to get the best result from the project is to work collaboratively with Huntington Pacific Media.

    BACKGROUND

    Introduce your business and what you do there. 

    I'm the owner and president of a fitness apparel and weightlifting gear company.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with Huntington Pacific Media?

    We needed help with our overall marketing.

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement? 

    Huntington Pacific Media conducted weekly marketing meetings with our team members and their own team. They put together a plan for what to do on social media and through email blasts. They let us know what types of things we needed to focus on in branding to get more customers. They assessed what we were doing wrong and what needed to be fixed. They also did some graphic designs. 

    What is the team composition?

    We worked with a total of five people. Jordan (Owner, Huntington Pacific Media) was our lead. There were two other people on the project at the beginning, and then two additional people joined as it went on. 

    How did you come to work with Huntington Pacific Media?

    My former partner found them. Someone he knew referred them to us. 

    How much have you invested with them?

    We spent $7,000 a month for three months.

    What is the status of this engagement? 

    We worked together from September–December 2018.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    They did a really good job. Huntington Pacific Media was instrumental in creating a marketing plan and getting us working in an organized manner. The short duration of the project wasn't due to their lack of performance; rather it was due to our financial situation. Even though we're no longer using them, they impressed upon us how important planning and organization are for success. 

    How did Huntington Pacific Media perform from a project management standpoint? 

    My former partner was the one who was overseeing their work. They used the Monday project management program for communication. They were responsive, timely, and proactive. 

    What did you find most impressive about them? 

    Jordan, in particular, was so professional. I appreciated that he’s never pushy. A lot of salespeople are aggressive, so it was refreshing that he’s so understanding. It was nice working with him. 

    Are there any areas they could improve? 

    No. They didn't even know our industry at the start and worked diligently to learn about it. The only reason we let them go was because of issues on our end.

    Do you have any advice for potential customers? 

    Communicate well and trust them.

    Huntington Pacific Media delivered a fresh new site with a fully revamped and improved look and feel. The team coupled high-level digital marketing campaigns with detailed reporting to show the quantitative impact. Communication was an area in which they notably excelled. 

    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 am the president of Iron Rebel and Granite. I run both sides of the company. 

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with Huntington Pacific Media?

    Iron Rebel was already branded fairly well, but we needed to improve the Granite side. Our challenge was figuring out how to brand that aspect of our company. 

    Since branding doesn't immediately bring positive ROIs, we tried to address specific challenges like through digital marketing and managing athletes to generate intermediate returns. 
     

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    Huntington Specific Media helped us recreate our website with a specific feel and branding. They also worked on our social media. We gave them a lot of direction on how to go about their work. 

    Our company does social media marketing and digital marketing, so it wasn't completely new to us. We simply needed their team to execute our plan, or even just create a promotional campaign we could follow and implement. 

    What is the team composition? 

    We mainly interfaced with Jordan (CEO, Huntington Pacific Media), as well as Stephen (Digital Project Manager, Huntington Pacific Media). 

    How did you come to work with Huntington Pacific Media?

    We found Huntington Pacific Media through a referral from our CFO. Once we interviewed them and talked for a while, we had them do a bit of work to see how they performed. We liked the quality of their work, so we hired them full time. 

    How much have you invested with them?

    For one company, we invested about $40,000. 

    What is the status of this engagement?

    We started our project in September 2018. They're still working with us to a degree on social media and digital marketing. 

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    Huntington Pacific Media redid our website's homepage. I don't know if there was an immediate impact, but they cleaned it up, and it now looks much better. They've offered us more and better-quality reporting on how our ad campaigns perform like PPC ads on social media outlets and email campaigns. Reporting had been a prominent missing link they've provided for us. They were able to translate our progress around monetization and results into numbers so we could accurately evaluate our campaigns. 

    How did Huntington Pacific Media perform from a project management standpoint?

    Huntington Pacific Media's correspondence was great. Communication with key along different channels because we had so many moving parts. They were responsive and easy to get ahold of. We talked numerous times throughout the day. 

    What did you find most impressive about them?

    Huntington Pacific Media is willing to go above and beyond the scope of work. 

    Are there any areas they could improve?

    Nothing comes to mind. 

    Do you have any advice for potential customers?

    Future clients should make sure their own company's infrastructure is set before bringing the team on. Huntington works faster using the structured procedures they have in place. Since our processes are less established, we found out the hard way through a two-way learning curve.

    Feedback summary: 

    Through their work, the company’s social media following has increased and their reach grown, also improving awareness of the brand. They have also worked on maintaining brand ambassador relationships and ensured they develop smoothly, while reliably communicating with the in-house team.

    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 am the owner of Wow Wow Hawaiian Lemonade.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with Huntington Pacific Media?

    We needed some more experience with social media and all the new algorithms that are implemented on platforms such as Instagram and Facebook. We were looking for people that were specialized who could walk us through the latest changes and processes of those platforms.

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement? 

    Our focus has been primarily the social media aspect, though they are helping us build our YouTube channel as well. We also partnered with them for input on how we can communicate and inspire our followers in a way that is not just traditional sales marketing. We never have the intention of selling our customers something; our goal has always been to inspire them.

    What is the team composition?

    I primarily worked with Jordan, the owner. There are a couple of people involved in the day to day; about 2–3 on a consistent basis.

    How did you come to work with Huntington?

    This was our first time working with an agency. Most of the things we had done previously were done in-house. We’ve had a couple of people help us in a few small areas, but we've never turned something over to another firm.

    We were referred by a friend of ours who had worked with them and I reached out after that. We started slow with a couple of test areas and grew from there. They were super responsive and very proactive, and we continued to trust them with more over the first initial 3 or 4 months.

    How much have you invested in them?

    We have spent less than $10,000 in total so far, and spend about $1,000 a month.

    What is the status of this engagement?

    Our engagement began in July of 2017 and the work is ongoing.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    They helped us develop a core program with different ambassadors in Hawaii that had been too hard for us to maintain on our own. They have done a really good job with those relationships.

    We’ve definitely seen a growth in our social media on our YouTube channels, Facebook and Instagram. They have helped us to expand our reach and have been expanding brand awareness. They really helped us to capitalize on our current followers and customers, and have come up with creative new ways to communicate.

    How did Huntington Pacific Media perform from a project management standpoint?

    It’s great. They’re very responsive and proactive. I haven’t had to reach out to them to ask for something I didn’t have as they are usually very proactive weekly. They send me updates, statistics, and other information.

    What did you find most impressive about them?

    They’re very reliable and always go a little bit above and beyond what we contracted them for. They provide services for us without necessarily charging for them because they felt they would help us. It’s nice because it feels like they are on our team, helping us grow, and they don’t treat us as just another paying client they have to service.

    Are there any areas they could improve?

    There’s nothing at the moment as far as what I’ve noticed within our services.

    Do you have any advice for potential customers?

    I always recommend starting slow and with small projects. Get a feel for how your companies work together and for the experience level and the type of work that is done. Build the relationship once you can see that.

    In today’s market, there are many firms and people that are marketing themselves as social media experts who will charge you and then turn you over to an automated system to help expand your social media network. There is not a lot of personal time and they don’t do much work.

    With Jordan and his team, they are actively involved. They communicate with our brand ambassadors, build content, and creatively directing content. They took the direction I gave them for who the brand is, and have taken over smoothly, which has been cool to see.

    What is the team dynamic?

    Jordan Dahlquist [Founder, Huntington Pacific Media] was my only point of contact.

    How did you come to work with Huntington Pacific Media?

    What did you find most impressive about them?

    Jordan is an incredible learner and what he lacks in years of experience he makes up for in work ethic. He is also committed to excellence and extremely creative and innovative.

    Are there any areas they could improve?
