Our goal was to have a unique, eye-catching, and engaging brand that would stand out from the rest. We were under a lot of pressure to have our website up and running so we could show our clientele.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We had worked with another marketing company, but they could not quite grasp the concept we were looking for. We decided to try MakerStreet (formerly Hatchet Agency) because of a referral from another business.

Describe the project in detail.

Since we do not have an in-house team, we outsourced the whole process to MakerStreet (formerly Hatchet Agency). Aside from developing our website and branding, they also created our logos and business cards. After seeing the mockups, we didn’t request any changes because we were happy with what they’d sent.

Our primary contact was MakerStreet's (formerly Hatchet Agency's) head of strategy, who was exceptional to deal with.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

MakerStreet (formerly Hatchet Agency) delivered comprehensive branding and messaging complete with high caliber designs and content. Their work has been well-received and generated notable outcomes; three out of five users now recommend the brand. The team is flexible, skilled, and engaged.

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 one of the directors of SEM Group, an electrical contracting company in Queensland, Australia. We offer electrical contracting, solar, and most recently metal fabrication services.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with MakerStreet (formerly Hatchet Agency)?

We weren’t engaging with our customers as well as we should. Our sales process worked effectively, but was fairly disjointed. Our company needed help with branding and content creation.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement? 

MakerStreet (formerly Hatchet Agency) unified the messaging across our different businesses and websites. They helped us define our goals more clearly and understand what we wanted to achieve and why. They developed all of our strategies for committing to a greener world, which is our central mission.

Our company is exceptionally busy and proficient, but we don’t have any in-house creative agency to facilitate our automation. MakerStreet (formerly Hatchet Agency) has essentially rewritten how we communicate with our customers from a CRM point of view. 

MakerStreet (formerly Hatchet Agency) guided us through the CRM process and explained why we needed one. We took their advice and got a system in place with the help of another vendor. They created the automations our internal team lacked the expertise or time for. The team has taken many tasks we’ve always wanted to do and made them happen.

What is the team composition?

I personally work with three people from the team. Casey (Director, MakerStreet, formerly Hatchet Agency) is our main point of contact.

How did you come to work with MakerStreet (formerly Hatchet Agency)?

The current director used to work with a different company we’d hired in the past. We’ve spoken with many vendors over the years, and MakerStreet (formerly Hatchet Agency) certainly seems to be more customer-engaged than most.

How much have you invested in them?

We have spent $60,000–$70,000 AUD (approximately $42,000–$49,000 USD).

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in June 2018 and have an ongoing relationship.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

MakerStreet (formerly Hatchet Agency) put together an amazing presentation to show us the journey of our engagement and how much work they have done for us. The content and designs they created have been excellent and made a massive difference. The team’s work fully met our standards and we’ve received positive feedback.  

We keep an eye on social media and have noticed that three out of five people recommend in many forums where people ask who they should hire for solar. This result isn’t just based on our performance; I think it’s also due to our branding. Our new marketing and messaging are strong and help us stand out from the crowd.

How did MakerStreet (formerly Hatchet Agency) perform from a project management standpoint?

We are a somewhat difficult client because we throw MakerStreet (formerly Hatchet Agency) ad hoc projects left, right, and center. They use a Gantt chart to track our goals and timeframes. 

Our industry is very fast-moving, so we have to take advantage of trends as they arise. MakerStreet (formerly Hatchet Agency) has to fit these additions into the overall project management and timeframes, and they’re typically very adept. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

MakerStreet (formerly Hatchet Agency) took the time to get to know our business. Rather than just telling us what they thought we should do, they researched the market and what we stand for as a company. Their recommendations included what our message should aim to achieve and how to make our brand more cohesive. 

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. We are probably too demanding in our expectations. In our line of business, customers expect things overnight, which often isn’t achievable. As a general rule, MakerStreet's (formerly Hatchet Agency's) work is exceptionally quick.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

MakerStreet (formerly Hatchet Agency) has a fresh mindset. They think outside of the box to help clients understand what they need to achieve. I recommend them with certainty to all my business colleagues. They’re a great match for any client who wants to satisfy their brand and get to know and interact with their customers better.
