Feedback summary: 

Within two months of the campaign launch, app downloads skyrocketed from 100 to 5,000, including over 3,000 unique signups. Studio Mosaic stood out from other vendors thanks to their precision and metrics-oriented mindset. They were fully committed to customer success.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the Founder and CEO of HQ Demand. HQ Demand is an eCommerce Marketplace empowering buyers and sellers with the tools to transact confidently, effectively, and efficiently online.

Buyers on our platform can virtually confirm the functionality and quality of any product they wish to purchase online. Sellers on our platform, for the very first time, are able to build business relationship with their clients leading to repeat clients.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Studio Mosaic?

HQ Demand was initially a very small team with no marketing experience, in fact, we tried running some facebook and Instagram campaigns during our beta launch ourselves and that was a complete waste of money regardless of how much we tried.

Before launching our app publicly, we knew we needed the experts to jump in, so we researched and found Studio Mosaic out of all the noise in their space.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to generate downloads, sales, and product upload as fast as possible with the initial public launch of our marketplace.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I interviewed and researched over 25 marketing agency, but Studio Mosaic was the only company that stood apart. They were able to in detail, explain to me how much I will be looking at to spend to the cents.

Other companies could not put their numbers together and had no fixed cost and fixed way of pricing their customers, so it was hard to trust them.

Studio Mosaic's client portfolio was great and spoke for itself as well. Most especially, they spoke very knowledgable about my industry and connected to my product.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

The scope involved crafting our story and our WHY so they could better understand how to brand HQ Demand. They proceeded with App Store Optimization, and then social media campaigns. We had weekly meetings where the campaign results were discussed. They will send me this report ahead of time.

What was the team composition?

Their team involved a project manager, client relations manager, and other marketing experts. What was very unique was that their founders will occasionally get involved to see how the project was going. They were also CC'd in all emails. This speaks volumes as I can tell the open door policy of the company.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Within 2 months, Studio Mosaic was able to get us from 100 downloads to over 5000 downloads, 3000+ signups, and 300+ products uploaded from across all states in the USA.

This is an incredible result in the eCommerce space where the competition and bar are very high. Also, considering that we were a brand new company with zero products on our shelves, this was very remarkable.

Above all, Studio Mosaic took HQ Demand as their own company. They were not focused on impressing us by scaling up the downloads and signup unnecessarily. They were focused on quality over quantity at all times and that was very appreciated as that results to great engagement on our platform.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Our engagement with Studio Mosaic's team was very smooth and probably the best so far with all agencies we have worked with from development firms to accounting firms, etc. Communication was on point, reports were detailed and turned in on time, meetings were excellent.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I almost forgot this part, before the project started, Studio Mosaic audited our app and gave recommendation on areas of improvement for better user experience and all.

Their audit was worth all the marketing expenses. It was very thorough and they even helped test it as we fixed each of it multiple times. They were not just a third party company to us, they were our team.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Honestly, we didn't experience any negatives with Studio Mosaic. This is why we are not even making any effort to look for another company for our phase two marketing. We already told them we will be coming back to them, and this seems like it will be a very long term relationship/partnership

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 VP of marketing and advertising for a mobile golf app.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Studio Mosaic? 

We needed help to grow our monthly app installs and premium subscriptions. We didn't have anyone in-house focused on paid marketing or paid user acquisition.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement? 

Studio Mosaic ran ad campaigns for us on Facebook, Apple Search Ads, and Google Ads. They sent me a summary report on a weekly basis in order for us to monitor and discuss how everything was going. 

What is the team composition? 

We worked with 4–5 people. Our main contact was the account manager. We were in touch with their CEO as well. There were a few other team members that were sometimes copied on an email. 

How did you come to work with Studio Mosaic? 

I don't recall exactly how the initial contact happened. I think Studio Mosaic reached out to us a while ago. We still had their email when we were thinking of hiring a dedicated resource for user acquisition. We considered 2–3 other agencies but they gave us the best offer. 

How much have you invested with them?

We paid $2,500 per month.

What is the status of this engagement? 

The project took place from March–August 2019.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It was great working with Studio Mosaic; they did a superb job. Our primary goal was to acquire app installs for less than one dollar. They were successful at hitting that metric. As our business model is subscription-based, we’ve seen year-over-year growth. Studio Mosaic definitely helped maintain that growth of general revenue. 

How did Studio Mosaic perform from a project management standpoint? 

Studio Mosaic never missed a beat. Every Monday morning, we got a summary email of the previous week’s work. Every Tuesday we'd have a follow-up call to go over metrics. They did everything we asked them to do, and went above and beyond to perform for us. 

What did you find most impressive about them? 

Their communication was most impressive. They were so well-organized and easy to deal with. We’ve dealt with a lot of other agencies and Studio Mosaic really stands out.

Are there any areas they could improve? 

No, not really. I'm very satisfied with their performance. 

Do you have any advice for potential customers? 

They're affordable, they do great work, and they care about the client. Other agencies pitched us but it was clear that Studio Mosaic was passionate. We’re definitely considering using them again in the near future.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the founder of Fairswap. It’s a mobile application in which individuals can swap any currency anywhere using the official exchange rate or any rate of their choice for free by meeting people wherever they are.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Studio Mosaic?

Fairswap launched about two months ago, but I didn’t have any experience on how to communicate and market this new idea. I needed to find a serious and trustworthy agency for this.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to provide qualitative communication about Fairswap.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We chose them based on their experience in digital communication for mobile applications. Their ratings on Clutch and Fiverr also helped our decision.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

Studio Mosaic handled app store optimization and created a launch campaign, a user acquisition plan, and impacting landing page designs. They also produced a meaningful video about Fairswap’s benefits.

What was the team composition?

They assigned two app marketing associates and one business manager.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

It’s too early to share results since the plan is still ongoing. Their team is always available, clear, and pragmatic.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We have weekly Skype meetings. They’re always really helpful in explaining in detailed and clear words what they’re doing and what their objectives are, which I really appreciate.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Their experience with launching mobile app products is impressive. This allows them to provide valuable insight. They’re also very trustworthy and have no issues with signing NDA’s.

Are there any areas for improvement?

It’s too early to say.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder of Out of Nigeria, a nonprofit organization that sponsors adventures and humanitarian activities for young people to showcase Nigerian life and culture.

 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Studio Mosaic?

We wanted to create an app for iOS and Android where motorcyclists can post about their trips and then join other on theirs. We built the app in Nigeria, but I needed help to market it properly, create quality designs, and ensure that the app performed well.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They didn’t build the app, but their guidance and critique have helped us shape it and build a marketing portfolio. Now, they're reengineering the app to prepare for relaunch and remarketing. They've identified its shortcomings and are helping rebuild it to include all the features we missed.

They give us specific marketing direction so we don't throw money away. They explain which countries and communities we should target, how we should do it, and who we should contact. They also give us great advice and guidelines about UX.

What is the team composition?

My first contact there was the business manager, who connected me with the CEO and COO. Now, I communicate primarily with the CEO and marketing manager.

How did you come to work with Studio Mosaic?

While searching online, I saw that Studio Mosaic was ranked as one of the best agencies in the world, so I approached them along with other companies in India, Russia, and the U.S. Their response stood out, so I hired them.

How much have you invested with them?

We've spent between $10,000–$15,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

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

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The app works well and they’ve built a great marketing strategy. In addition, the short marketing video they created conveys my vision of the app perfectly.

They give us a detailed weekly activity report that shows how the app is performing in the app stores, user challenges, and suggestions to move the app forward. Working with Studio Mosaic has been a great experience.

How did Studio Mosaic perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re excellent managers. There are no issues with the time zone difference; they usually deliver before their deadlines. We meet on Skype to discuss things, and they respond to emails promptly and professionally. That’s what drew me in and convinced me to select them. I recommend them to my friends around the world.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their responses are quick and reliable. Their work seems effortless because they know what they’re doing. They’re pleasant, professional, courteous, and understanding. I can see myself working with them for a while because I’m satisfied with their work.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a mobile app for dog lovers. It’s basically a social networking app. Some of the main features are locating dog friendly services on a GPS enabled map and offering available dogs for adoption both domestically and internationally.

We also have photo sharing and posting, where every user gets up to three dogs associated with their profiles. This can be shared on other social media platforms. It’s a consumer friendly platform that dog lovers can use on a regular basis. I'm the founder and CEO.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Studio Mosaic?

The main goal was to build our brand and acquire users. We had two different phases of our business strategy. One was to build our brand in terms of how do we establish our social media presence, how do we advertise to potential users, and how do we get them excited about the launching of the app. We wanted to ultimately keep users engaged.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

In phase one, which we started back in July 2017, we did a lot of social media marketing campaigns. They managed all of the ad campaigns across different platforms like Facebook and Instagram.  They made sure we acquired followers and they did a fantastic job with that. We got over 40,000 followers on the Facebook page and some followed on Instagram. They really helped with the campaign part of getting people excited for the app launch that would follow a few months later.

They helped us come up with an app store optimization strategy. They focused on the keywords that were trending the app stores that were also relevant to the app and our users.

They also prepared the app store video as well as the screenshots. They prepared the description of the app and worked extensively within the app itself as a user to research what key features should be highlighted in the app store descriptions.

Along with putting together the app store images and video materials, they also put together a presentation for me that gave product feedback. From an external user perspective, they told us what things could be improved on the user interface, the UX, and the functionality of the app itself.

What is the team composition?

We mostly communicate with their CEO, COO, and their ad manager.   

How did you come to work with Studio Mosaic?

I think they originally found me through Angel.co. The founder sent me an email with their services and at that time, I was looking for someone that was experienced in working with apps and launching them worldwide.

After seeing their portfolio, their worldwide audience, and the kind of apps they’ve worked with, I chose them. Seeing others success stories was really a determining factor. They were also very attentive and strategic in creating a strategy before the management team even executed the project. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working with them since June 2017 and the work is contracted to end July 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve gained 40,000 Facebook followers because of their campaign. It’s been great for our brand and has established an overall social presence. We’ve had engagement on our Facebook page too.

We currently have 1,800 active users on the app right now, and a lot of that came from their strategic acquisition through the Apple search ads. In the beginning, we started acquiring users at $2–$3 each. But Mosaic was able to optimize and get it down to under $1.

How did Studio Mosaic perform from a project management standpoint?

They're project management is great. We do a weekly marketing call and they also give me weekly updates through their ad manager. They give product feedback as well.

Overall, any issue that’s come up, they've been pretty responsive. The time difference of them being in India hasn’t been an issue at all.  

What did you find most impressive about them?

They really execute on their plan. They're very responsible, responsive, and diligent. When they say they're going to do something, they actually do it.

I was also impressed with their expertise of knowledge and their ability to put together an efficient app launching strategy.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They maybe could offer a wider variety of services beyond what they're doing right now. But nothing really stands out.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the founder and CEO of a company that provides fax-based services and apps for iOS, Android, Windows, Mac, and the web. We have both inbound and outbound offerings, mostly for consumers and small-to-midsize businesses.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Studio Mosaic?

We’ve spent most of our time perfecting our product, so we did very little marketing, user acquisition, and product promotion. All of our traction was organic and we were focused on making a fantastic user experience, but we decided it was time to begin scaling our company. We didn’t have the resources to do it internally, so we looked outside our company to help us scale and get much broader traction.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Studio Mosaic provides a virtual CMO and marketing team. They're involved in everything from identifying the higher-level marketing strategy to creating a detailed and tactical plan to execute on that strategy. Sales and broadening our market are their main concerns, and they’ve created a strategy that’s compatible on all the platforms we work with. Our goal is to acquire more users and ultimately convert them into paying customers who don't just purchase one time, but stick around and add a meaningful lifetime value to the company.

What is the team dynamic?

We have a project manager and direct contact with Akhil [CEO, Studio Mosaic] when needed.

How did you come to work with Studio Mosaic?

We searched around online until we found Studio Mosaic. The most important thing for me is having a good working relationship, and I had great chemistry with Akhil.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent about $15,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

Our partnership began in May of this year, and it’s ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Since involving Studio Mosaic, our sales have more than doubled. They surpassed the initial growth goal we set, and our downloads have increased by over 60%.

How did Studio Mosaic perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re a small team with multiple clients, but our project manager is highly committed, extremely responsive, and almost always available. Beyond that, Akhil takes a personal interest in our projects and likes to be involved.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’ve taken on our business as if it's their own, making our partnership feel like a family. They’re fully committed and passionate about it, which is rare for an agency that's managing multiple businesses at the same time.

Akhil is a hardworking, genuine, and passionate individual. He provides service above and beyond what he's committed to, and he goes out of his way to satisfy his clients.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, they've done a great job.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the head of business development at a company that has developed an application. This application helps people to find the services and service providers they need and whom they have a trust-based connection with.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Studio Mosaic?

We had an initial project in India that we ran with another marketing agency, and we wanted to expand our India footprint. We were looking to increase online growth picked up through social media.

SOLUTION

What is the scope of their involvement?

Our method of growth in India is through social media, so that is what we needed assistance with. Studio Mosaic is driving user acquisition through social media channels, mainly on Facebook and AdWords. Since we took them on in India, we have also expanded to working with them in Nigeria.

How did you come to work with Studio Mosaic?

I found references to them online and did a little bit of research. They seemed highly recommended by a couple of places online, but it was quite sketchy in terms of detail. I contacted them and asked them for a couple of references, particularly if they had worked with any South African companies. It turned out that they did, so I got in touch with those people.

We chatted with Studio Mosaic and 4 other service providers in India. We went to Delhi, met them all, and Studio Mosaic was the most impressive.

How much have you invested with Studio Mosaic?

The total expenditure is approximately $15,000–$20,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

I started working with them in January of this year and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They picked up our growth rate in India significantly from the very start. They've also improved their performance throughout and been able to tie in with new markets. We’ve kept them to a very limited geographic space, so that has impacted the returns that we’re getting on investment. Obviously, we have a strategic reason for this, but we’ve been very impressed with the result we’re getting and the continual improvement in cost per install and numbers.

How did Studio Mosaic perform from a project management standpoint?

They are one of the service providers we’ve used that we’ve been most impressed with. They did what we asked them to do, and they did it efficiently. The scope of work is not very big, but they’re doing the job well. We’ve had no problems with them hitting deadlines at all. They have an open Slack channel and they also interact with our local social media team. I chat with them and they give good feedback. When they have issues, they ask; when I ask them questions, they’re very responsive.

What did you find most impressive about Studio Mosaic?

I’ve worked with a few agencies who are of a bigger size and claim to be able to do more things excellently. However, with the work we’ve done with Studio Mosaic, they seem to be very good. They haven’t overpromised and underdelivered. They’ve been able to do what they said they would do — that’s really impressive.

Are there any areas Studio Mosaic could improve?

Not really. We kept the relationship focused. At the moment, because of where we are now in the development cycle, we’re not really interested in expanding. Because they’ve been good at working with our narrow focus, we haven’t really had any issues.

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 managing partner of SideMoney, a get-paid-to site hosting tasks, videos, surveys, and games. People can complete different items in order to earn points and redeem them for gift cards or cash. We’re located in New York City and have 3 partners, as well as a 15-person team for the Facebook marketing, design, development, and accounting.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Studio Mosaic?

We were launching a mobile application and needed a team to help with our marketing efforts.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Studio Mosaic created marketing images and helped propose the keywords for our app descriptions and marketing materials on iOS and Android. They also assisted with the submission process for app stores. After we launched, they qualified our app every month so that it would remain in the store and updated our marketing material.

How did you come to work with Studio Mosaic?

I found them on Upwork and liked the pricing they offered. As an Indian team, they also could speak English well. I couldn’t deal with other providers from that region because of the language barrier. Studio Mosaic was prompt and responded to us when we needed a conference call. They were very knowledgeable about the space.

How much have you invested with Studio Mosaic?

The cost of their work was around $5,000. We had a monthly spend of $1,200.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Studio Mosaic in August of 2016. Our collaboration stopped in December.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Studio Mosaic helped me get the application into app stores. They delivered on results, ensuring that we were following the procedures required for each store, which was all we asked from them. Studio Mosaic didn’t directly affect our sales and downloads. The rest was left up to us, which was why we stopped working with Studio Mosaic. We didn’t need their services anymore, but they delivered everything on time.

How did Studio Mosaic perform from a project management standpoint?

We chose Studio Mosaic largely because of their good performance in terms of communication. They delivered on time, and when I asked questions, they responded appropriately. We communicated via email, Skype, and phone.

What did you find most impressive about Studio Mosaic?

They’re definitely knowledgeable about the space. I didn’t take full advantage of Studio Mosaic because I have people within my team who have similar expertise. For a provider with such low prices, it’s refreshing to find that they can also follow through and provide what we need.

Are there any areas Studio Mosaic could improve?

I can’t think of anything I’d change. I was happy with Studio Mosaic, but I didn’t use them to their full capacity.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are not yet an organization. It’s just me and my brother working on our first projects for the app business. I'm creating my first app, a PDF manager that’s targeted for all app store users.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Studio Mosaic?

Our main challenge was getting and developing ideas for our first projects. We also needed help with creating and executing the marketing strategy.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Studio Mosaic helped us with the app store research, brainstorming, and features definition. Then they started with the development, which is the phase we are currently at. The PDF Manager imports and scans files, converts them to pdf, then saves and shares them.

How did you come to work with Studio Mosaic?

We learned about Studio Mosaic through Elance. They had really good ratings and sent me a really complete proposal.

How much have you invested with Studio Mosaic?

We spent less than $10,000 on their services.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project is still ongoing. The brainstorming started in the middle of April 2016 while the development started 3 weeks later and is not yet done.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

So far, they’ve been serious. They respect dates and the scope of work. We are happy with the product we have.

What did you find most impressive about Studio Mosaic?

Akhil [Studio Mosaic CEO] is a pro regarding user experience, monetization, and marketing strategy. When you are new in this business, you need someone to give you sincere advice and orientation about every detail. Other developers will just do the coding, but they won’t give you any advice.

Are there any areas Studio Mosaic could improve?

So far, we are really happy. They charge more than other Indian developers but their advice is really important. We hope we get good metrics when we launch our app.

Feedback summary: 

The client has seen a dramatic increase in downloads of their app since their relationship began with Studio Mosaic. They appreciate the great communication and that Studio Mosaic was able to provide work in other languages.

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

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

My company helps people create videos by taking their photos and videos and improving them. I am the founder.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Studio Mosaic?

We needed help with app store optimization.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The first thing Studio mosaic did was keyword optimization, and then they helped with app store marketing.

How did you come to work with Studio Mosaic?

I found them on oDesk, which is Upwork now. I was not looking for companies. I wanted to hire an individual to do the work. Even though Studio Mosaic was a company, the team there didn’t behave like one. The owner behaved like an individual contractor. That’s what I was looking for. He provided everything I was looking for. His communication skills were very good and he reached out to me with questions, which I loved. I didn’t have to ask what was going on, which is a huge positive.

How much have you invested with Studio Mosaic?

The project was under $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’re still talking about things. He’s not working on anything right now. We started 11 months ago.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Before using Studio Mosaic, we struggled to find a distribution channel that would work. We had five to 10 downloads per day. The minute he put his keywords in, we jumped up to 25 a day. While he was working on the SEO [search engine optimization], we went from 25 to 150 a day. Now we’re in the 300 - 400 range.

How did Studio Mosaic perform from a project management standpoint?

Great. For the stuff that he advertised, I would give him 5/5. There were some things he didn’t advertise that we had him do anyway, which was the other languages they could produce work in.

What did you find most impressive about Studio Mosaic?

The thing that distinguishes them is the personal touch. The communication is amazing and informal.

Are there any areas Studio Mosaic could improve?

No. I think they’re a slam dunk for working with big or small companies, especially small companies because they need the attention that Studio Mosaic gives.
