The Review
Feedback summary: 

Sales have increased significantly since the engagement with Intensify began. Their team is full of innovative creatives. Intensify’s transparent approach supplemented their professional and organized management style. Customers can expect a team that’s dedicated to their clients.

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 CEO of a clothing brand.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Intensify?

I hired Intensify to grow our market base and sales volume.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Intensify runs our paid advertising, helps with our Facebook and Instagram, and performs email campaigns for the brand.

What is the team composition?

We work directly with two people.

How did you come to work with Intensify?

I received several references from friends.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent about $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our engagement began in February 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Intensify quadrupled our sales.

How did Intensify perform from a project management standpoint?

Their team is organized and creative. Getting on the phone with them is easy. Sometimes we email. I’ve dealt with marketing firms that were a bit outdated and living the past. Intensify’s team is innovative and understands my market. It’s nice working with a team with members around my age.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They built a personalized dashboard that gives me complete access to see how the ads spend is performing daily. My previous marketing firm wouldn’t even tell me how the budget was being allocated. Their transparency is refreshing.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Our relationship is still unfolding, so who knows what could happen. But Intensify has done an excellent job so far.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

It’s the same advice I would give about most marketing firms. Clients should know their market well to point them in the right direction, so their team can do their job.
