Launching and scaling a new e-commerce store from 0 to over 3000 items sold / month Image

Launching and scaling a new e-commerce store from 0 to over 3000 items sold / month

BACKGROUND

Pomelody offers educational music products, workshops and a mobile app for children 0-6 and their families. In October 2018 we launched a completely new e-shop to sell their digital and physical products (music albums, songbooks). The shop was built on Wordpress+Woocommerce in a record time of 2 weeks.

 

OUTCOME

Working closely with Pomelody's team

we've managed to grow the e-shop from 0 to over 1000 orders per month in less than 3 months and maintain a stable growth trend in the following months. In May 2019 Pomelody Shop generated over $30,000 in revenue.

 

The most important tactics to achieve these results included: Facebook Marketing, Email Marketing, Sales Promotion (discounts, referral programs), Community (we leveraged Pomelody's fan group on FB, blog and the founder's influencer status in the parenting industry), as well as Marketing Automation. 

Growth Acceleration Strategy & PPC Campaigns for Brainly India Image

Growth Acceleration Strategy & PPC Campaigns for Brainly India

In mid 2017 we joined forces with Brainly to help them create a growth acceleration strategy for the Indian market. The strategy combined such channels as search ads, social media ads, content, SEO, mobile and PR/Media. Skalski Growth team managed PPC campaigns in search, social media and mobile, as well as supported the internal team in executing other parts of the plan.The new strategy was a tremendous success. In the next

few quarters Brainly India has shown an outstanding 200% year-over-year traffic growth rate. As per Similarweb's data, it has soon reached over 30 million visits per month and become the largest educational website in India.In terms of PPC, this cooperation helped identify an extremely cost-effective acquisition channel for mobile app users. Soon it's been implemented in other Brainly markets as a best practice.

Feedback summary: 

Skalski Growth determined the startup’s survival and fantastic success. Despite starting from nothing, they helped the business achieve amazing revenues. The friendly yet professional team became an integral component of the client’s business and has been a great pleasure to work with.

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 Pomelody, an educational start-up based in Krakow, Poland.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Skalski Growth?

They joined our team a year ago when we were just starting out. We needed their help to grow into the company that we are today—to develop our product and to gain revenues.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They built an e-commerce store and manage our digital marketing. We had initially hired them with the intent of creating an app, but they suggested an alternative approach. Instead of focusing on the whole world, they reoriented us to corner the Polish market. To do that, they instead developed a WordPress e-commerce website.

At the very beginning, we met with Wojtek (CEO, Skalski Growth) and discussed our business needs. While this is only a side note, I was really impressed by how the entire team takes excellent notes in our meetings. Wojtek analyzed our business goals, and by the second meeting, delivered a step-by-step outline of the strategy and services he would provide.

He offered strategies for different avenues, from paid marketing to organic search. The team worked in extremely efficient one-week sprints. While the environment at a start-up is very dynamic, Skalski Growth adjusted very well to our culture.

What is the team composition?

We worked with a team of 3. We had a team member assigned to our paid ad campaigns and another who assigned tasks and implemented the graphic design. Wojtek oversaw all development and provided all strategy.

How did you come to work with Skalski Growth?

I found Wojtek through a friend on LinkedIn. I noticed that he had previously worked with another educational tech company, so I decided to go with his company.  

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent somewhere between $10,000—$50,000. When we were starting out, they were very flexible regarding the price since we were on a tight budget.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began in August 2018, and it’s an ongoing partnership.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Thanks to them, our business has survived. They took us from 0 revenue to an income of $40,000 a month. One of our most successful projects was a crowdfunding campaign in Poland, where we broke the Polish record within the music category. They’ve also helped immensely with our PR. Even when we didn’t have paid marketing, their efforts were extremely successful.

Their advice and reorientation of my business have been extremely fruitful, so we’re very thankful. They learn extraordinarily quickly, and they’re incredibly professional.

How did Skalski Growth perform from a project management standpoint?

I’ve found that they’ve focused 100% on my business, and they’ve been available—in case of emergency—24/7. Their constant support has been a great relief.

The entirety of the work is done remotely. When we were based in the same city, we tried to meet once a week per my request. After a couple of meetings, we decided that was unnecessary, and that remote work is just as effective. They utilize Basecamp and are extremely transparent, so we’re able to track all progress. They’ve also been excellent about providing weekly reports before every meeting.

In addition to Basecamp, we communicate on Slack and use other management apps like Trello. They’re extremely organized but also extremely adaptable to your company culture.

What did you find most impressive about them?

It’s been such a pleasure to work with them. We’ve had stressful situations with financial issues or being ill-prepared—they’ve always been happy, professional, and friendly, through all of that. They quickly became integrated into our own team.  

Are there any areas they could improve?

They’re perfect for growth-stage startups. Since we’ve experienced rapid growth and are undertaking multiple projects, we could always appreciate more hands on our projects. Having said that, I understand that their business model specifically focuses on startups at earlier levels of development.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Don’t treat them like a marketing agency, because they’ll truly become the marketing team of your company. Don’t hesitate to give it a shot with them.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am a psychologist and psychotherapist, specialised in Cognitive Behavioral Therapy. In 2018 I started my own psychotherapy practice.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Skalski Growth?

I hired Skalski Growth to build a basic online presence for my psychotherapy practice. I just founded a company and looked for a way to attract first patients. My budget was very limited at that point so I only looked for the most cost-effective and sustainable solutions. Besides a website, I wasn’t sure what’s required to gain visibility online. I relied on their experience to choose the best channels and methods.

What were your goals for this project?

I wanted to attract patients to my new practice. My primary goal was to get my calendar 100% booked within the first month of operations. On top of that, I wanted to have a professional, easy-to-navigate website and be “findable” online for people looking for help with their mental health. As I was just starting and had a small budget, I also wanted to spend as little as possible on marketing and always keep my ROI positive. I needed someone to find a smart way to make it all happen.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

When I spoke privately with the Skalski Growth’s owner about my plans to start a psychology practice, he offered his help in setting up my online presence. I believe that they treated it as a small side project.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

It all started with a new website. They covered this topic end-to-end, taking care of the domain name, hosting, design and development. I was always up to date about what’s happening and had a decisive vote in all discussions. They've also granted me admin access to the website's CMS so that I can edit it on my own. The website they've developed is fast and mobile-friendly, with a clear description of my specialization and contact information. I’ve received very good feedback about it from my patients and friends.

Then, to make my company findable, they created a listing on Google My Business and in all the most relevant directories for mental health professionals. They suggested to reach out to old patients from previous workplaces - to get my first reviews and increase credibility. I did it. Soon, I received my first reviews - and not much later - the first requests from potential patients. Next, they've explored multiple paid channels by running quick experiments. They tested the local Google Ads campaign, which resulted in a few phone calls.

The real game-changer though was a premium profile in one of the most popular doctors’ directories. It provided me with a steady volume of new requests from patients. We decided to focus on this channel. Finally, they made sure that my website is well designed for search engines. They also suggested what content to create to gain more organic traffic from Google. As a result, I see a steady increase in the number of visitors from search engines.

What was the team composition?

The project was led personally by the owner. The website and marketing campaigns were developed by one of his marketers. An SEO Specialist was helping with the technical audit of the website and optimizing it for SEO.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Besides having a professional online presence I managed to get my appointment calendar fully booked within about 1 month from the start of our cooperation. In fact, I have more far more requests that I am able to handle at this point in time. As a result, I am already thinking about scaling my practice and hiring some psychologists to help me handle the demand.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

The workflow was very effective. I was surprised by how fast they can deliver new things. They also respond immediately to all questions. We communicated over the phone, email, Slack, and Basecamp.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

The best thing about Skalski Growth is that they can work really well with small companies like mine. They move really quickly, listen to feedback and adjust their actions. They can operate within a small budget and prove business value immediately.

On the one hand, they are very experienced advisors, who can understand your business environment fast and come up with ideas for what may bring the results. On the other, they are also great in making things happen and finding out what really works in no time.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I don't see any.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the VP of global markets at Brainly, an educational homework help platform for students around the world. We operate in 12 languages and more than 35 countries and we have over 150 million users monthly around the world.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Skalski Growth?

Our challenge was the Indian market was so big and we didn’t know where to start.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Skalski Growth provided his expertise to help us prepare a growth plan for the Indian market. We merged his ideas with our ideas and then he helped us with some processes. We had a plan to grow from a few million unique users in the Indian market to over 10 million in one year.

Their involvement was more in the performance marketing area, to help us acquire more users. For the performance marketing campaign, we were calculating how many questions we could get from the users and then how that could be helpful for us. Wojtek (CEO and Owner, Skalski Growth) then introduced his plan on mobile apps. He was promoting mobile apps in different regions in India. He launched PPC, social media, and SEO campaigns.

He built the growth trajectory in the mobile apps and we followed his idea in this area. We also promoted the most popular content from our website and where the students could find us most of the time. We acquired more users and they were more interested. We got a lot of users from this tactic.

What is the team composition?

I worked with Wojtek.

How did you come to work with Skalski Growth?

We worked on projects together in the past. I knew his expertise and wanted to get additional help from him.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent $50,000–$60,000 in 2017. Our current budget is $300,000/year.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together in August–December 2017 for the first project.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We reached over 10 million users after seven or eight months. Our organic content creation was high, which drives our growth. This year, we expect to reach 25 million unique users, which we will probably reach in a couple of months. Today, almost 70% of our total traffic comes through search engines.

We were quite surprised that users were so engaged with the mobile app. It gave us a better idea of how we could use our mobile apps in different countries. Our users in India spend more than 30 minutes on our app daily and 5-7 minutes on our website. In a couple of months, we got more than 300,000 questions on different mobile apps, which was the first time that 90-95% of our total content creation came from mobile. We get a lot of content from the users and at the same time, the engagements really go up.

How did Skalski Growth perform from a project management standpoint?

Their project management was very good. We still follow the methodology that they created in the campaigns. Our projects are successful and are still ongoing.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Wojtek is a very organized person. Before any meetings, we knew what we were going to talk about. He’s data-driven and does all his estimates based on data. It’s very important to use this data in a way that we can grow because we have a huge knowledge base and user base. His presentation skills are amazing.

Are there any areas they could improve?

He could take more risks in some projects to bring more results.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I have a friend who has a horse-riding business who also works with him. I don’t know the end result.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We've done the research. Ask people from the local community. Wojtek had the best references and great history with growth hacking at https://brainly.com.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

The project aimed at exploring various lead generation channels for some of our services and products. It started with a kick-call, during which we discussed in detail our expectations, products and services, competitive landscape, previous experiences, and many others.

Based on that, Skalski Growth team prepared a strategy, which included, among other parts, a tactics backlog. It was a list of the most promising channels and campaigns, prioritized by a potential impact, cost and probability of success. After approval from our side, they started testing the ideas one by one in a timely manner.

Over the course of the next 3 months, they’ve tested multiple campaign setups in Google Ads, Facebook Ads, and Linkedin Ads. Each time, exploring multiple messages, placements, and target audiences, and doubling down on the most effective ones. Some of the campaigns required developing new landing pages - made on Unbounce (third-party software) - which allowed us to save a lot of our internal resources (IT/design time) and launch them pretty fast.

They have also tested several approaches to email marketing. Leads from all the campaigns were automatically sent to our CRM, to be processed by the sales team. Every week we jumped on the call to discuss the progress and learnings (it was a good knowledge sharing for both sides), and plan the next steps. The team worked in rapid weekly sprints with some new work delivered every week.

After identifying a few successful channels, they organized a handover to one of the internal team members (including detailed documentation of all the channels, creatives, etc. and a training call). Later, even after the end of our cooperation, whenever any problem occurred, they provided immediate help.

What was the team composition?

The project was led by Wojtek Skalski, who is the head of the agency. He was responsible for crafting the strategy, turning it into an actionable plan and overseeing the project. A key role in the team played a Growth Marketer who was responsible for executing the marketing plan, setting up the analytics and reporting on the progress.
