The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the COO of MoneyBall, LLC (aka $Ball, LLC) and oversee the development and operational functions of the app. MoneyBall is a simple game that targets the memory skills of its players. It allows you to train your brain & exercise your mind with brain puzzles and memory games.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire PreApps?

We came up with the concept of MoneyBall in 2018 and decided to hire PreApps to help with our pre & post launch marketing campaign.

What were your goals for this project?

We would like to see our app reach 100,000 downloads or more on each platform (iOS & Google Play).

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I came across PreApps by researching App Marketing Agencies on the internet. With a variety of agencies selected, I chose to go with PreApps because:

  1. They showed great interest in our goals and visions for the app.
  2. They were cost-efficient. 3
  3. Sean Castro called us for a pre-sign conference call and was very educated in this field of marketing. His knowledge on app development, sales tactics, target audience analytics, etc. sold us immediately.

Describe the project in detail.

When we got ahold of PreApps were were still in the development stage of our app. PreApps guided us through the entire development process; whether it was development ideas to meet specific platform requirements, SEO and app analytics, Screenshots, app registration, engagement ideas, etc. A year later we got approved for launch on the App Store, and PreApps is now helping us with our pre & post launch marketing campaigns.

What was the team composition?

Over the course of our development stage PreApps had paired us with a few different team members to help assist and guide us through the process. CEO Sean Castro stayed in contact with us throughout the entire process, always checking in and making sure everything was as needed. We were assigned a Senior Client Success Manager as well as a Director of Product & Services through Gummicube. All members were very responsive and helpful throughout the app development.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

PreApps guided us through the process to getting MoneyBall approved for launch on the App Store. Now they are in the works for lining up multiple marketing campaigns to target app downloads. Outcome is TBD.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Very effective. Our PreApps team was very knowledgable in their given fields. This made making changes very easy during the development stage. Each team member was very quick to respond when we were having problems and needed guidance. Solid teamwork.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their personal interest in the success of our app. They treated this project like it was their own. They were always up to date when staying in contact with us.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Everything can always be faster and smoother, but we were very satisfied with their work every step of the way. And at the end of the day, we came out with a beautiful product that we were proud to call ours.

Feedback summary: 

Since launch, the app has received over 20,000 downloads. Revenue and engagement are also increasing. The team at PreApps is communicative and professional. They're skilled in their industry.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the creator of MyObits, an obituary creation app. We saw a need for affordable obituaries delivered in a more direct approach. The high cost of traditional print obituaries is causing grieving families to abbreviate information or even foregoing an obituary altogether. Our app is free to download and experience.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire PreApps?

We hired PreApps to help launch our app, optimize app stores with creatives and proper content.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to introduce our app appropriately considering the subject matter. It’s a very niche market and presented challenges to reach our target audiences.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Reviewed the top 10 app launch vendors and after speaking with Sean, I felt as though I had a good match.

Describe the project in detail.

Everything from ASO, to creatives, to ASA creation and ongoing optimization. Securing quality app reviews from reputable sources, some of which are still referring my app.

What was the team composition?

I had a project manager and there were team members added along the way that specialized in different aspects of the project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We knew it would be tough since we weren’t Candy Crush, but since launch we have had well over 25K downloads. Our revenue continues to grow each month as well as user engagement.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Very easy, they presented ideas and executed them professionally. We had video conferences regularly to track progress, adjust keywords and continue to optimize.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Great communication and knowledge base in their offerings.

Are there any areas for improvement?

None

The Review
Feedback summary: 

Feedback has been positive pending the official product launch for which the commercials were made. Highly professional, PreApps was responsive to client needs, managed independently, and produced quality work.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

What challenge were you trying to address with PreApps?

I had a dating app with an impending launch for which I needed a commercial.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was the scope of their involvement?

PreApps developed three commercials for me for the Apple and Google Play stores. The videos are 30 seconds, one minute, and two minutes long. They were able to create them without too much feedback from me. The whole project took two to two and a half weeks to complete. We’re currently talking about other marketing strategies to implement together.

What is the team composition?

I worked with the founder/CEO.

How did you come to work with PreApps?

I was doing market research and couldn’t find anyone I liked. At the same time, I saw an infomercial from them and decided to give them a call.

I was initially interested in seeing what marketing work they could do for me but they were out of my budget as a startup. They were able to provide the commercials at an affordable price.

How much have you invested with them?

I spent $3,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together in September 2018.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together in September 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The videos came out great and professionally crafted. The app hasn’t launched yet but based on feedback from friends and family, everyone loves the videos. I’m very happy with PreApps’s work.

How did PreApps perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicated mostly via email. They were efficient and professional. For example, when we found a spelling mistake later, they went back and changed things with no problem. Also, my development team had issues posting the videos so they changed the format for all of them. They were great.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Our contact’s professionalism was most impressive. Everybody does things a certain way and some people aren’t very professional in my opinion. He was super professional and very good.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I would love if they could lower their prices so we could do full-scale marketing. I’m new to business and marketing but, at the same time, I think that in a lot of cases, you get what you pay for.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Negotiate. They gave me a price for the videos and they were willing to negotiate.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I'm the founder and CEO of a studio that builds world-class mobile games.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire PreApps?

We engaged PreApps for a four-game marketing project.

What were your goals for this project?

We needed to have articles written about our games, conduct keyword research, and prepare screenshots and gameplay trailers.

SOLUTION

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

PreApps team is working on App Store optimization for our games—keywords, descriptions, screenshots, and videos. After the game launches, they will help us with paid and unpaid press mentions across the world.

We are working with three other PR firms besides PreApps. In a few months, we will know which company is the best fit for us.

What was the team composition?

I interact with Sean (Founder & CEO, PreApps) most of the time.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We launched our first game before Christmas and received over 100 mentions. This helped us reach more than 5,000 installations, which made us happy.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We have weekly calls that allow us to keep everything organized.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Sean has been our main point of contact, and communicating regularly helped us work well together. I think they have a strong workflow and give necessary materials on time.

Are there any areas for improvement?

PreApps is an ideal partner for companies that have a product ready and validated. In our case, we were not at this stage with our product before we worked with PreApps. I haven’t seen breakout success for our games yet, so I don't know if they can take a game from zero to 100 million users, but I am confident they can take us from zero to 10,000.

For what projects/services did your company hire PreApps?

We hired PreApps to create advertising content (including two promo videos, app store optimization, screenshots, etc.), to write and distribute a press release to various outlets, and to secure app reviews upon launch.

What were your goals for this project?

We sought to get some PR and to have an excellent app store presence upon launch.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Found them through Google.

Great workflow. Everything was easy and smooth.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I loved working with PreApps because they produced great content and an excellent press release. But, I really appreciated the fact that my company was so behind schedule in terms of a timeline (over two years), yet PreApps was ready to go once we were ready to launch. They hadn't heard from us in many months, but when I told them our app would be launching in a week, they were prepared and did a great job.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I can't think of any but I have nothing to compare them to. This was the first team we outsourced for marketing, and we were happy with the results.
