BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the CEO of Cult of Design, a full-service design firm assisting clients with a wide range of challenges including selection of architectural details and finish, as well as decorating space with furniture, fabrics, and accessories.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Panem Agency, and what were your goals?

At some point of time we realised that we are grown up enough to hire new people, and, consequently, we were looking for ways to attract more customers. We decided that the best solution would be leveraging our online presence, so we got in touch with Panem. Our main goal was to drive more customers through organic SEO and paid search. We focused on increasing relevant traffic to our website as well as boosting Google Ads ROAS.

SOLUTION

How did you select Panem Agency and what were the deciding factors?

We interviewed six agencies and Panem seemed to have the best approach and experience relevant to the needs of our company. Not to mention, reasonable pricing also affected our choice.

Describe the scope of work in detail, including the project steps, key deliverables, and campaigns.

First of all, we held a meeting to introduce our business strategy to their team, and also share our goals. In a few days, they presented a plan for SEO and a Google Ads strategy to us. After we approved the plan, their team started implementing it right away. They regularly reported on the progress of the project.

How many people from the vendor's team worked with you, and what were their positions?

We mainly communicated with the project manager, however, several SEO experts, a Google Ads specialist and a copywriter were also involved in the project

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any measurable outcomes of the project or general feedback about the deliverables?

The Panem team managed to double our traffic within a two-month period and we got one of the top Google SERP positions. Cult of Design started acquiring more customers, so I believe the goals of the project were 100% met.

Describe their project management style, including communication tools and timelines.

It was remarkably effective due to clear communication they provided. We knew the plan, could make remarks and ask questions, and were regularly informed of what had already been done.

What did you find most impressive or unique about this company?

These folks are super responsive, fast, and smart. It was a real pleasure to work with them.

Are there any areas for improvement or something they could have done differently?

No, they did their job well, and we didn’t have any issues.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the Marketing Team Manager at Waverley Software, a global full-cycle software engineering company with HQ in Silicon Valley and development centers in Ukraine, Vietnam, and Bolivia. Since 1992 we've been building dedicated development centers for companies in Robotics, Smart Home, Energy, Telecom, and other industries.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Panem Agency?

Panem Agency provides SEO consulting services, including technical website audits, content optimization, and link building.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to improve our website's exposure for the relevant search queries and boost our lead generation potential in organic search.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We started working with Pavlo Lysyi and Panem Agency after interviewing several SEO consultants. In addition to the fact that they had experience working with technology firms and Western markets, they were also located in Lviv, which allowed for on-site visits to our Lviv office, where our Marketing Team is situated.

Describe the project in detail.

We started a little over two years ago, at the time we had a website with good (but not SEO-friendly enough) content describing our company background, services, and expertise. We had several in-person meetings at the beginning, where we discussed our goals for the SEO, the company specifics, expertise focus, and customer profiles. Pavlo and his team at Panem Agency helped us deeply analyze the structure of the website, improve its performance, speed, discoverability. On the content side, we came up with a strategy to fill in the gaps, fix the current mistakes, developed a vector in which to develop our website and Blog.

What was the team composition?

At first, we only worked with Pavlo Lysyi and a dedicated Keyword Researcher. Now, we also work with an SEO Team Lead, Linkbuilding Manager, and a Project Manager on their side.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Over the two years that we've worked together, we managed to optimize our website for search engines, fill our website with the relevant content, some of it ranking on the first pages of Google. We've improved our overall positions in organic search, significantly grew the number of organic users (and leads) on the website. We continue implementing new SEO strategies and seeing good results for our business.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We managed to establish a process, where the workload was effectively divided between our team and theirs. They advise us on the technical side of things, keep us posted about changes in Google algorithms, help with the keyword research, and TF-IDF analysis. We fix all technical issues ourselves, come up with the content strategy, and create our own content, following their recommendations and guidance.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

They are very knowledgeable about everything that's going on in the world of organic traffic, keep an eye on the search tendencies, and help mitigate potential risks.

Are there any areas for improvement?

There's not much to improve, they are there for us when we need them. The team we work with are easy to communicate with, we also learn a lot from them about the SEO best practices in the process.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Panem Agency?

The constant pace, new and interesting ideas not only in terms of getting positions, but also in terms of marketing, clear planning, balanced team are all things that can characterize our cooperation with Panem Agency.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

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 business development manager at Otakoyi, a design and development company that offers mobile, web, and UI/UX solutions. We provide offshore teams, and we typically work with American and European customers.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Panem Agency?

We’re business partners with Panem Agency, acting as both clients and providers to each other.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We refer our clients to Panem Agency for SEO. Customers come to us for search engine solutions for their websites, or other improvements related to SEO, such as developing a whole new website or solving issues.

Panem Agency is also responsible for our company’s SEO. During the first year of our partnership, Panem Agency worked on our site’s ranking in the Ukranian market. They helped us move our Ukrainian website to a new domain. They’ve been working on American and European markets for the past few years.

Panem Agency does some consulting on social media. They help us with technical issues and content strategy, such as advertisements. They either do the work themselves or consult us on how to do it with our own resources. The team recommends what technology stack we should use, what we can improve on, and more.  

What is the team composition?

My team has worked with 10–12 people from Panem Agency across our collaboration, including the CEO, content writers, and team members who research new markets and keywords.  

How did you come to work with Panem Agency?

We’ve known Panem Agency’s CEO since before our company existed. He’d previously worked on a project with our CTO, who described him as a professional in SEO.

How much have you invested with them?

The total investment so far—taking into account what they’ve delivered in the cases where we were working together for a client—would be $100,000–$150,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our company began operating in June 2011, but our official relationship with Panem Agency surrounding the brand Otakoyi started much earlier. The engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It’s been a successful long-term partnership. They launched our first website fully SEO-ready and user-friendly. Our website had good content from the start. Around 80% of our customers are organic, which is part of Panem Agency’s work.

We’re among Google’s top three rankings for highly competitive keywords in the Ukranian market. After we moved our Ukrainian website to a new domain, it only took a few months for the new domain to attain the same positioning as the old one. Being on the first page is great, since SEO in this field is quite competitive, especially in Ukraine. We don’t have any results with the American and European markets yet, but it took us seven years to get to the first position in search results for the Ukrainian market.

How did Panem Agency perform from a project management standpoint?

I work directly with the staff of Panem Agency through chat. I tell them what I need, and they tell me what we have to do to achieve the result. My team works on branding and lead generation through the website.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We’ve had a truly successful experience. We value the CEO’s SEO experience and knowledge.

If someone’s looking for highly-experienced search engine optimizers or excellent copywriters who can find new ways to improve a website and its search results, Panem Agency is a good choice. They not only know SEO, but also how social media works, how to improve a website technically, and how to save money by advertising on alternative platforms like Clutch. We found Clutch because they recommended it to us.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, they’re really great. They have strong technical expertise relating not only to SEO, but also UI/UX, mobile app development, and so on. If someone hopes to optimize their search results on Google or Bing, or wants to improve the user flow of a website or application, Panem Agency has experts in analytics and other fields.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

Panem Agency can work as an outsourcing company for the client, but they can also act as part of the team. They can deliver technical staff and act as the SEO team for a company or a product. This is how they work for us.

They not only execute tasks but also solve issues. They’ve found results for us and completed research without any required guidance from us. They’re a product-oriented team.
