Feedback summary: 

Savage Global’s work earned the attention of captains and crew, potentially bringing in more business for both the facility and Savage Global. Their expertise and innovative suggestions in digital marketing exceeded expectations. They offer high-quality services at affordable prices.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the general manager of Sunrise Marine Harbor, a mega yacht facility and high-end, private residence.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Savage Global Marketing?

We do a couple of events each year. We wanted to showcase those events.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They came on board as a sponsor for our event. We didn’t know what we needed to do or how to do it. He came up with great suggestions of what he could do and use for our advertising. We proceeded with those ideas. He used drones and still cameras. He went beyond the call of duty to make a first-class video for us and still pictures as well. The videos were posted on Facebook, our website, and YouTube.

He did a second event for us in April 2018, and he’s also doing a third event for us June 1, 2018.

What is the team composition?

I work with Chris (CEO, Savage Global Marketing).

How did you come to work with Savage Global Marketing?

They were recommended by another sponsor who had done some advertising with them.

How much have you invested with them?

Each sponsor benefit level was worth $5,000. We spent $10,000 total for the first two events.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in April 2017 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The impact of their work was very well noted. A lot of these yachts are available for charter, and the work can showcase their yachts as well. When some of the captains and the crew saw what he could do with filming, they contacted him to do similar work for the charter yachts.

How did Savage Global Marketing perform from a project management standpoint?

Chris was excellent. We use telephone, email, texts, and talk in-person.

What did you find most impressive about them?

His knowledge of what he does is impressive. His approach is very calming. He suggests great marketing ideas to work with different companies. He’s top-notch. I bounce ideas off of him and he tells me whether it’s a good idea or not. He comes up with fantastic ideas.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Savage Global Marketing?

We wanted a marketing strategy to get to more customers worldwide.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Savage Global Marketing designed and implements our marketing strategy to expose us to a global market. They enhanced our branding, redesigned our website, and improved our SEO. They give me steps to follow so I can market the company online.

What is the team composition?

I have someone assigned to my account and I also speak with the owner.

How did you come to work with Savage Global Marketing?

Their owner and I were friends. When he went out on his own, he asked me to give him a chance to see what they could do for me. We’ve been working together ever since.

How much have you invested with them?

I’ve spent $6,000 so far including the web redesign.

We’ve been working together for four months and it’s ongoing.

Our business has grown since they redesigned the website and took over marketing. I’ve seen an increase in our customer intake. They’ve opened up new markets, including commercial and housing. When I started working with them, I had 11 employees. Now we’re up to 19 and hiring for another position.

They have plans for how we can take my business to the next level. We had a goal for July that we’ve already hit in May. We have another goal for December that we want to accomplish together.

How did Savage Global Marketing perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re very responsive. I get a progress report every 15 days. Every time I call, they’re available for me. The owner is never too busy to answer my calls or explain things to me, even two or three times. They show me what they’re doing and what they’ve done. I feel very secure in the way they conduct business.

I also like the way they present—they take the time to explain to me in nontechnical terms what they’re doing and why, what I’m paying for, and how it will benefit my business.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re direct. They tell me directly what is happening, what they’re doing, and the impacts on my business. They impart their expertise to educate me on the terminology and the processes, which I appreciate.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the general manager of Rendezvous. We’re a waterfront bar and restaurant.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Savage Global Marketing?

We wanted to overhaul our online identity for branding purposes.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I met with Savage Global several times and communicated our goals. We wanted guests to easily find our website and receive a great representation of who we are as a business. I don’t know anything about web design or SEO, so I let them take the lead creatively.

They designed and developed a new website to replace our old one. Significant improvements were made to the site’s UI/UX and they also provide content tailored for SEO. They created a custom menu and delivered a version ready to print. We plan on engaging them in the near future to run our social media marketing.

What is the team composition?

We interface with both their CEO and director of strategy.

How did you come to work with Savage Global Marketing?

They were recommended to me by several members of the community who previously worked with them. Savage Global’s offices are close to the restaurant, so they’ve been our patrons on occasion. We started talking and the relationship evolved from there.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $5,000 thus far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in June 2017 and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The site redesign and SEO services had a positive impact on every metric we track. Traffic on the website is substantially higher than it’s ever been. The visitor click-through rate is excellent, which leads me to believe people are getting the information they need. We’ve experienced tangible results from this engagement as more guests frequently visit our establishment. They definitely fulfill and exceed my expectations.

How did Savage Global Marketing perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re top-notch. I’m in the restaurant business, so I primarily communicate through phone calls. Savage Global accommodates that and is very responsive. I know they’re just a phone call away if I ever need anything.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I appreciate the quality of work they deliver and the business rapport we’ve developed over time. They have an excellent understanding of what we want to achieve and have the skillset to facilitate that. It’s been an amazing change for our business.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No. They perform better than I could’ve hoped.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder and CEO of Euphoric Smoke, a smoke and vape company. We have retail shops but we also wholesale and distribute to other companies.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Savage Global Marketing?

We hired Savage to build a WordPress website and help us build our marketing capabilities. We had a new product we wanted to market, but each state has their own laws regarding how we could advertise. Our challenge was to explain and present our product to our customers without making false or illegal claims.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Our company was expanding from just a warehouse to multiple warehouses and multiple offices, so they came at a time when we needed them. Our old website was on 3D Cart but they built us a new WordPress website from scratch. One of worries was having a new website and not being able to manage it ourselves, but Savage taught my employees how to manage the site internally.

Savage did some SEO in the beginning such as teaching us about keywords, tags, and back-linking, but SEO is going to be the biggest part of our relationship moving forward. Further, they collaborated on a system to categorize our clientele, so we could offer tailored customer service.

What is the team composition?

I dealt with a point of contact, who connected me to whomever I need to talk to at Savage.

How did you come to work with Savage Global Marketing?

I was referred to them by a business associate. I met with a point of contact from Savage and came away impressed with the respect he showed me, despite my company’s relatively small size.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent $10,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together nine months ago. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our website views have nearly doubled, and our web sales have increased. We also nearly doubled our clientele, going from 250 registered customers to 450.

How did Savage Global Marketing perform from a project management standpoint?

Though I worked through one point of contact, we were kept up to date on everything Savage was doing. They explained exactly what SEO services they were providing, and we never felt like we were in the dark. They responded quickly to questions, either immediately or by the end of the day, and we’re available by email, phone and text. Because they understood what we wanted, they were able to work independently and smoothly manage the project.

What did you find most impressive about them?

It’s hard sometimes to get answers from companies once you’ve started working with them. But with Savage, communication is on top. Everybody felt like they were worth something.

They were flexible with their payments as well. In the industry, people are expecting their money right away, and as a company that was starting out we were nervous about dumping money on marketing. But Savage let us set up a small, little payment program and we paid off the project in a few weeks. Even before we hired them, they started giving us tips and hints on how we could make our design better and what we could do immediately, even if we didn’t hire them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Most vendors do what they signed on to do, but Savage never stops. They’re always on the move to the next thing. But I think there’s room for improvement in the things that they’re already strong in.

Chris is very professional. He is always on call and very motivated to help. Whenever we have a question, they are there to help us. We’re very pleased with them.

How did Savage Global Marketing perform from a project management standpoint?

What did you find most impressive about Savage Global Marketing?

They’re very proactive, not reactive in solving issues. Chris and Vitor are very eager to see us grow. Savage Global is not just a vendor, we consider them a partner in our business. Our success is their success. Savage is the only vendor I have that I’m comfortable saying that about. They make sure we’re pleased.

CIMENET-USA exports industrial kitchen equipment from Europe or the United States to Latin American countries. We export to large chain hotels, banks, and chain restaurants. I’m the general manager.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Savage Global Marketing?

Rather than focusing on Latin American markets, we wanted to approach the American market. In Latin America, we didn’t have a presence in digital marketing and we needed help with establishing that.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We needed to attract more awareness online in order to get more leads that would convert into more customers. They helped us with SEO [search engine optimization] and PPC [pay-per-click] campaigns, email lists, and all the digital marketing campaigns. They did some blog posts on Bloomberg as well. They also built a website from scratch and worked on AdWords. They also put a video in the background of the website, so it was very interactive. They made the website stand out in order to attract more clients.

How did you come to work with Savage Global Marketing?

Chris [CEO, Savage Global Marketing] and I went to high school together. One of his business partners ended up being a roommate of mine at FSU [Florida State University]. I interviewed a couple of marketing companies. I knew Savage and felt I could trust them, but they also had enthusiasm about what they were doing. One of their best sales pitches was that they were willing to go above and beyond for the customer.

How much have you invested with Savage Global Marketing?

How did Savage Global Marketing perform from a project management standpoint?

Lauderdale Marine Center is a marine service center specializing in boats that are from 80 feet up to 180 feet. I’m president of the company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Savage Global Marketing?

We acquired the company in 2015 with a very dated website, so we decided to build a completely new one.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They developed the website from scratch including content, graphics, and the complete site. We let them know what we wanted and gave them an outline of the content that we wanted on each page. They developed the content and then gave it to us for edits. They needed to work with existing photography we had and they did a nice job with that. The people writing the content were not knowledgeable on the marine industry, so we had to help them with terminology. They created the content for the website but we’ve used it for collateral material such as brochures that we take to boat shows. They also produced 2 videos for us for an exhibit at a boat show.

How did you come to work with Savage Global Marketing?

They did creative work for one of our tenants and they introduced us to them. When we decided we were going to rebuild the website, we had a PR firm we were dealing with.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

The feedback in general has all been very positive. When looking at where we were previously and where we are now, we’ve over doubled our website traffic. Our income in 2016 was a significant increase over 2015. We’re convinced that a big part of that was the marketing efforts we had.

How did Savage Global Marketing perform from a project management standpoint?

Chris, the principal of the company, was very hands on. Our interaction was at least twice a week throughout the process of building the website. They met all the deadlines that were set for them.

What did you find most impressive about Savage Global Marketing?

They’re very knowledgeable about driving traffic to a website. In our industry, because we deal with bigger boats, the website is more about enforcing the brand and not so much sales.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Savage Global Marketing?

We needed to get a better Google presence through marketing, SEO, videos, and other initiatives.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Savage Global Marketing built our website from scratch and continues to maintain it. It features private customer profiles through which they can track the progress of the work. Savage Global Marketing also worked on our SEO, providing pictures and content for the site, our blog, our Constant Contact campaign, and our other online collateral. They have developed our YouTube and Facebook pages, as well as anything else related.

Our content can vary in scope and is usually related to our current work. Savage Global Marketing has made videos on-site, which are edited and posted on our behalf. Savage Global Marketing built our new company video (for which they wrote the script), as well as other ones, including drone footage. Everything featured our actual team, so there were no actors involved.

Savage Global Marketing built our website based on our pictures and general direction, handling all other aspects of the work.
