The Review
Feedback summary: 

The partner’s Indiegogo campaign exponentially increased in revenue, with $10 of investment equating to $100 in sales. Oh 1 Media was flexible in compromising and loyal in striving to reach elevated goals. The two teams communicated through Slack, phone calls, and email.

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 castAway development co. We’re a startup that builds second screens as an additional monitor for mobile phones. Our campaign is on Indiegogo.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Oh 1 Media?

We were trying to figure out how to efficiently navigate Facebook ad placement. Our goal was to attract people to make pledges on our Indiegogo campaign.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Oh 1 Media helped craft the wording of our ads for our Facebook audience. Their team helped us make good decisions about how much we should spend and where the ads should be placed according to demographics.

What is the team composition?

I only worked with Evan (Founder, Oh 1 Media). I don’t know what he had behind the curtain.

How did you come to work with Oh 1 Media?

I work at a shared office facility called mHUB in Chicago and was referred to them by the agency that did my website and video production.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent between $6,000–$10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project lasted from November 2019–January 2020.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The correlation of success was amazingly empirical. Every time we invested $10 in Facebook ads, we got $100 in sales. It was repeatable and predictable. We duplicated it dozens of times. If we had a budget of $1,000 per day, we could expect $10,000 in sales and so on.

How did Oh 1 Media perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicated through Slack and spoke on the phone many times. Sometimes, we’d email one another as well.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Because I was inexperienced with Facebook, I interviewed 5–10 top-tier social media agencies before I hired Evan. He was willing to compromise what he thought were unrealistic monetary goals on my part.

After our first week, he was humble enough to reevaluate and tell me that I was right in my estimate of expected returns. Evan charges so much less than other agencies but got me even better results than what they were promising.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I think he undervalues his services. He delivered above and beyond what some of the best agencies could promise. In fact, he never promised me anything, he just said he would try.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be very clear about the specific type of wording you want on the ads. Evan himself doesn’t write the ads; he has others do that. So, when you convey information to Evan, who then conveys it to someone else, it’s like a game of telephone. You don’t always get what you want.

Sometimes I’d go in and tweak the ads myself. I rewrite parts of it when it isn’t precisely what I want. But other than that, it was near perfect.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

A Mover N' Shaker at Move the World Operations, a cause-experiential marketing agency.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Oh 1 Media?

We hired Oh 1 Media for a last minute campaign to drive awareness to our upcoming ticketed wellness events in Chicago and San Diego.

We were scrambling to find an agency that could turn anything around in such a short time period.

Evan and his team were able to turn around robust Facebook and Instagram campaigns within 48 hours that not only drove awareness, but measurable results in the form of online event responses and ticket sales.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to increase online event responses as well as ticket sales in both markets.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We were recommended to Oh 1 Media by one of our previous and reliable clients and they immediately went into action.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

We connected with Evan and the Oh 1 Media team on a Thursday night and had ads up and running by Friday. After a few phone calls with several of our team members they were able to understand our brand as well as the ins and outs of our company. We were able to recreate similar advertisements in another market the following month and had a similar process.

What was the team composition?

Oh 1 Media collaborated very efficiently with all of our team members from graphic design to social media to create ads that aligned with our brand and voice.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our campaigns were turned around in 48 hours and were a success to drive ticket sales in both markets! We're incredibly happy with the results and working with the Oh 1 team was fantastic.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow between both teams was incredibly efficient given the short turn around time.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

We are incredibly appreciative for the efficient communication and quickness of our campaigns. Oh 1 Media buckled down to understand what our goal was - and delivered it.

Are there any areas for improvement?
