BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a brand manager at a distillery. We sell wine and spirit brands across Canada, including gin, spiced rum, bourbon, vodka, and other alcoholic products.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

I wanted our business to be more active on social media. We needed a creative mind that would touch on certain points and help us gain new customers through social media channels.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Toast Studio has been a creative asset. They come up with ideas to communicate our brand. Their team assists in producing videos and photoshoots for the distillery. They pull together our social media channels, crafting content for Facebook and Instagram. Their team also assisted with one of our Christmas campaigns.

What is the team composition?

Sandy (Account Services Director, Toast Studio) is our primary contact.

How did you come to work with Toast Studio?

My former boss found Toast Studio when we were building a website. They helped us get in touch with other agencies.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent around $100,000 so far.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Toast Studio in September 2017, and the engagement is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We’ve seen a tremendous increase because of what they’ve done with our Facebook page. Sales doubled during the period when the Christmas campaign was combined with store promotions. Toast Studio’s social media work also contributed to that.

How did Toast Studio perform from a project management standpoint?

Toast Studio proactively comes up with creative ideas. They’re extremely responsive. We communicate through text, email, and phone calls. Our teams use a social media calendar to manage posts and content. Sometimes things come up, and we need the work quickly. They do their best to make it happen.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Toast Studio’s young and creative team is an advantage. They’re excellent at social media.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They could have more out of the box ideas, but they’re amazing at what they do. I don’t have anything negative to say about Toast Studio.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Clients should have an idea of what they want to do on social media. They can go into an engagement knowing where they want to go and able to see how the agency can achieve their goals.

Feedback summary: 

It’s too early for any concrete results, but Toast Studio created high-quality and promising content that resonates with the target market. The team’s efficient project management skills and responsive communication set the foundation for a smooth collaboration. Overall, they’ve been very helpful.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I design and manufacture menswear.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Toast Studio?

We needed assistance with social media marketing.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Toast Studio helped us with a pilot initiative for social media marketing. Using provided images, their team created written, visual, and video content for our company’s social media posts. They primarily targeted our audience through Facebook but also did some work for Instagram. On both platforms, they strategically marketed to consumer profiles that would most likely draw traffic to our website. The Toast Studio resources are working with our internal staff to put together an optimized posting schedule for the content.

At the same time as this project, we were also launching an e-commerce site. We wanted everything done in sync, so when the website was delayed, we had to pause our work with Toast Studio. We’re just now starting to publish their posts on social media.

What is the team composition?

We initially spoke with Danny (Senior Director, Toast Studio), then Shawn (Community Manager, Toast Studio) took over. He handles our day-to-day needs.

How did you come to work with Toast Studio?

A colleague had worked with them in the past and was happy with the quality of their services. I reached out following that recommendation.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent between $20,000–$25,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in December 2017, and the project is ongoing. At the end of this pilot initiative, we’ll evaluate the results and decide whether to continue the relationship or not.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Because of all of the delays stemming from the e-commerce site, most of their work is still waiting to be published. It’s too early to share any concrete results. With that said, we’re impressed with their work overall. I'm looking forward to seeing the results.

How did Toast Studio perform from a project management standpoint?

I was mainly involved in the initial discussions and strategizing, but I think they managed the full project very well. They communicate with our internal resources via phone and email. Once we publish more content, we’ll begin to schedule weekly check-ins.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I appreciated the quality of their work in general. Toast Studio is highly creative throughout their processes, from development to execution. Their content is rich and meaningful to our target consumers.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We try to move as quickly as possible, but delays with the e-commerce site hindered our progress. I can’t fault Toast Studio for the slow turnaround time. Honestly, they were moving quicker than we were.

Any advice for potential customers?

I recommend clients consider partnering with Toast Studio. I’ve been pleased with their work from beginning to end.
