BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the director of Yellow Hat. We provide rehearsal space for bands, and are planning to take our service nationwide.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Our Own Brand?

We hired them to develop our branding and identity.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted a design that reflected our brand and aligned with our business model. 

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We called them and explained our project. They were a small company that could focus on our project. Their ideas, enthusiasm, and approach aligned with our goals.

Describe the project in detail.

They created our name, logos, website, content, font, and social tags. First, we discussed the project and exchanged ideas about our vision through email. Then we had a one-on-one meeting with their team to talk about our ideas. Over several months, we exchanged ideas until they put together a full brand package.

What was the team composition?

We dealt with a single point of contact who delegated work to her team. She understood our ideas and handled communication between ourselves and the designers.

 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Three months ago, we didn't even have a name for our business. Now every aspect of our branding is complete. 

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

It was seamless. They talked to us in a way we could understand, speaking on our level without getting bogged down in the semantics. Our point of contact verbalized our ideas to her team, so they always had ideas available for review.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They were friendly, enthusiastic, engaging, and great listeners. After our first meeting, I was excited to keep working on our project. Their team shared our enthusiasm.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I don't know how design works, but they only gave us five ideas. It would be better to have more to choose from, but that might be the norm.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am a co-founder of Smarter Click, a marketing company that specializes in conversion optimization. We help e-commerce websites better guide their traffic throughout their website journey. We're based in London with an office in Madrid.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Our Own Brand?

We hired Our Own Brand to help cement our brand identity and take charge of our social media marketing along with our PR. Having had fast growth since our inception, it became time to focus on our identity as a company and present it to the market.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goals included a website refresh to properly outline where we stand in 2019 along with updated marketing materials to match. We also put in a strategy for our social media and content marketing to ensure we're presenting relevant information to our clients and the market we work within.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We selected them after speaking with a number of London-based agencies, looking at their cost and ability to grasp our ideas. Our Own Brand showed a great understanding of what we wanted to achieve and mapped out a good marketing strategy to follow throughout 2019, all while staying within budget.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

After Our Own Brand accepted the role as our PR and marketing company, we had a brand identify and social media strategy session. This helped everyone align our common goals from a marketing standpoint. Being able to set the scene and create a tone would be key when presenting ourselves publicly. 

Once we completed the marketing framework, we began developing the social media strategy, including regular posting and blog articles, to further engage with our clients and audiences. They continue to guide us through our marketing strategy and manage our social media.

What was the team composition?

I have principally worked with the agency on a daily basis to help deliver our marketing strategy’s goals.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We've seen a huge uplift in every aspect of what we were trying to achieve. Our almost non-existent social media efforts are now growing in terms of engagement and following.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

It has been easy to communicate the strategy on a regular basis using Slack and Trello. We’re able to make frequent changes to optimize the campaigns.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

It's been fantastic having a top-agency experience that’s both within budget and has a more personal feel. The team is always responsive and open to our way of projecting ourselves while providing guidance.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, not that I can see. So far, it’s been good!
