Feedback summary: 

Smashdeck captured the project’s specifications and devised an effective strategy to build an online presence. The metrics they provide serve as valuable tools to determine future steps in the strategy. The team is easy to work with and delivers positive results with their strategies.

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

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

Elder Care Guides provides care management and caregiver services to senior citizens.

What is your position?

I am president.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What business challenge were you trying to address with Smashdeck Marketing?

Our goal was to improve our digital marketing and, in particular, get a better understanding various social media platforms.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their involvement in detail.

The scope of the work was digital marketing assistance including online newsletters and email marketing, as well as social media marketing. They were also very helpful in setting us up with analytics tools so we could better gauge our success.

How did you come to work with Smashdeck Marketing?

We identified several different possible partners and did a desk review to reduce it down to three. We conducted face-to-face interviews with three different marketing companies to help us with strategic digital marketing and ended up selecting Smashdeck.

Could you provide a sense of the size of this initiative in financial terms?

It's probably been in the $15,000 range.

What was the timeline of the project?

The initial project, which consisted of them creating our digital presence, took about three months. However, we've continued the relationship since then.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What have been the results of the project? Could you share any statistics or metrics from this engagement?

The results were good. We took away a calendar of events that we could use, we took away a scoring card that we could use on the analytics side. While we've taken over the majority of the work, Smashdeck continues to work with us in a support role.

It's hard to share metrics that track the improvement of the project because they built everything from scratch. We weren't doing any of this before we started working with Smashdeck.

What distinguishes Smashdeck Marketing from other providers?

I found them very easy to work with. Smashdeck Marketing was great listeners and seemed to understand our problems even when we didn't articulate them as clearly as we might have. Overall, they were an excellent partner.

Is there anything Smashdeck Marketing could have improved or done differently?

No. I don't have any.

Feedback summary: 

Smashdeck adapted to the project’s specifications and delivered a finished website within the strict deadline. The team worked very fast, delivering most of the project’s requirements in the first week. The website, while simple, managed to capture the business’ ideals with its visual elements.

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

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company.

My company is SamplingForGood, we're a website that matches nonprofit events like races or festivals with companies looking to market their products to those attending.

What is your role and responsibilities?

I am the co-founder and CEO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What was your goal for working with Smashdeck Marketing?

At first, SamplingForGood was part of a larger company I founded called DonationMatch. I needed help launching the marketing pages for SamplingForGood as a separate website and company.

SOLUTION

Please describe the scope of their work.

When we were splitting off SamplingForGood from DonationMatch, I needed Christina [Hall, founder of Smashdeck Marketing] to create the new website from scratch, and I directed her to do it on Squarespace, so it could be easily transferred back to my company to manage. They came up with a basic website, along with some graphics. It was our very first site.

I didn't give her a long timeline at all, only about a month. She came back to me almost daily with specific deliverables. A significant part of the project was done within the first week. She's very fast and gives a lot of dedicated attention to her clients. The majority of the site was done in a week, and then I had suggestions for what I wanted changed. I would say the whole thing was done in three weeks in the late summer of 2014.

What was your process for selecting Smashdeck Marketing?

I've known Christina for at least two years through an association that we belong to. I hired her based on Smashdeck's past work with other companies as well as my personal relationship with Christina.

Can you give a sense of the size of the initiative?

It was less than $1,000.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What were the results of the project?

The results were positive, and I'm happy with the value I received for my money. The site was simple, but I really liked the graphics she put together, and it did a good job of representing our company in the initial stages of the launch.

Do you have any statistics or metrics on the project?

I don't have specific metrics. The main KPI [key performance indicator] was time. She had our site up and running in around three weeks, which I was incredibly happy about.

Is there anything unique or special about Smashdeck Marketing that really makes them stand out?

Smashdeck is really on top of updated technology. Christina was always looking for the least expensive yet efficient tools for us to use and was always making suggestions. She is also open to handing off a concept that she had set up on other vendor sites, so that we could move forward and not feel handcuffed to her to a certain extent.

Looking back on the work so far, is there any area that you think they could improve upon or something that you might do differently?

The site itself was not very complicated, which was fine for us at first. As we grew as a company, we had to move on to more sophisticated developers. That takes nothing away though, from Christina's marketing and design skills, which are great.

What advice would you give a future client of theirs?

If I had taken the time to pull more specific examples of what I liked and compiled a portfolio for her, which may have helped reduce some of the back and forth time we had. Although I was grateful for the time she spent discussing it with me. It would have been helpful to be more specific at the start. You can't assume that they know what you like.
