Feedback summary: 

TribalVision’s work increased customer awareness, the perception of product quality, and site traffic. Lead generation also increased exponentially. They provide account management services to a level unmatched by other firms and consistently deliver high-quality products.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CCO of Preventure. My duties include the oversight of sales and marketing along with operational functions like account management, product delivery, and reporting. We’re a corporate wellness company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with TribalVision?

The initial goal was to design our brand better and differentiate ourselves in the marketplace. Ideally, that would allow us to win more business and retain more clients. We also needed to bolster and diversify our marketing strategy but didn’t have the budget to hire multiple specialists.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

TribalVision helped us with creating video assets, SEO, acquiring paid search for incoming leads, website design, and more. The beginning of our work included a branding exercise that distilled keywords and phrases that embody our unique place in the market. We’ve further defined each of those characteristics and they’ve influenced our marketing initiatives over the past several years. We then built a number marketing assets including white pages, case studies, etc. To reflect, the new branding, they redesigned our customer-facing website and created a series of online marketing campaigns. This was done using Google AdWords, LinkedIn, and some key industry publishers.

What is the team composition?

We interfaced with a dedicated account team including a senior account representative.

How did you come to work with TribalVision?

We looked several different marketing firms through a competitive bid process. After initial meetings and talking more deeply about proposals, TribalVision stood out in how much they cared to know our business and not just sell us a product. They approached the project with a holistic marketing solution that more deeply addressed our needs. They also had very positive references, so the choice was easy.

How much have you invested with them?

We’ve spent close to $300,000 over the course of this engagement.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in January 2015 and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Through independent customer surveys, we’ve seen customer awareness, sense of our quality, and company reputation increase in key markets since working with TribalVision. They’ve also increased our site traffic and number of daily incoming leads. We went from having one lead a month to receiving multiple each day.

How did TribalVision perform from a project management standpoint?

I've worked with other marketing firms that have been really strong in product delivery, but I've never found one comparable to the level of account and project management that TribalVisions offers. They complete tasks without fail and provide me resources in a way that’s convenient. We have a weekly project plan review which keeps me up to date, so I don’t have to micromanage the marketing plan. We use Google Docs as a central repository for collaboration and have face-to-face meetings every three weeks. Communication is done by phone or email in the interim. I regularly use them as examples to our in-house account management team of what it looks like to support a busy executive on key projects like this.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I struggle with that question because they do so much so well. Again, their project management is stellar and the product they provide is of high quality. Everyone that we've worked with at TribalVision has been outstanding. They've taken a deep interest in understanding us and applying their marketing expertise to our business needs and unique industry perspective. I see them as more than a vendor, but a strategic partner. That’s everything I want from a marketing firm.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I honestly can’t think of one thing.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Have a planned meeting with your vendor. We check-in once a week for a short meeting or just an email outlining what’s happened and what’s coming up. This process keeps everyone in a productive rhythm and on the same page. Regular touch points can also be used to provide valuable feedback. I see TribalVison as an extension of my team and treat them accordingly.

Feedback summary: 

Their work has led to measurable growth in leads over the last year and a half. They are responsive, communicative, and proactive. Their team is experienced and professional and offers expertise in a variety of marketing services. They also outsource for cost-effective, talented freelancers to benefit project progress.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the VP of operations and finance for NetCenergy, an IT company that offers business management services. As an IT vendor for small to medium-sized business, we work on projects, infrastructure, security monitoring, and more.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with TribalVision?

Our company has grown organically from referrals, so we lacked a comprehensive marketing plan. We had to start one from scratch to grow beyond our limits.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We hired TribalVision to help us put together a marketing plan, create assets and content, and update our website. We also wanted to heavily utilize social media.

We hadn’t developed brochures or descriptive content for potential clients, so they first had to learn about our business. They researched our competition, looked at our demographics and landscape, and determined what needed to be done. We created a summary of their findings and outlined our goals. They helped us with sales asset management and revamped the website. Our website was redesigned to provide a consistent message, helping us show customers what our business aims to accomplish and who we are as a provider. We then set up a marketing plan for lead generation, and discussed elements such as social media, Google searches, paid searches, and SEO. We developed a plan featuring creative components like internal presentations.

Our referral-driven company was not as well-known as it should have been. We not only needed to drive leads to our website and business, but we also needed better branding. We began an educational series on vertical content strategies. Our vertical markets are predominantly in financial services, healthcare, and manufacturing, so we focused our content on these markets. We led seminars for attorneys and CPAs to educate them on the current IT environment. We helped explain ransomware, hacking, regulations, and the theft of private information, ensuring that they were in compliance and had the right solutions to remain secure and updated.

What is the team composition?

TribalVision assigned a manager, a second-tier person, and a third-tier person to our account. They've been engaged in everything we have been doing.

How did you come to work with TribalVision?

We deliberated what approach would best help us with our marketing campaign. Based on our organization's size, budget, and scale of our marketing campaign, hiring an individual marketing contractor was not ideal. We decided to seek a marketing vendor or agency that would have the capability to do an array of marketing work, and with whom we could build a partnership. Most of the companies we looked at were pushing certain aspects of marketing, but didn’t offer the whole package. In contrast, TribalVision had a unique business plan with the capacity to act as our marketing department and ensure results.

How much have you invested with them?

We pay a monthly base fee that's over $5,000, and we pay additional expenses for project-driven content.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in January 2016 and our work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We were prepared that results from this collaboration would take time to show because we initially didn’t have any content. They were very good at identifying areas that worked and didn’t work quickly so that we wouldn’t be wasting time or money. As a monthly fee business, we don’t have quick sales. It's important for us to build relationships. When we started lead generation, we began receiving inquiries. Getting in front of the right people is difficult, but TribalVision was able to do this for us.

As we started doing educational seminars to build our brand, our name recognition grew and we were branded as an upfront organization that wasn't just trying to sell services, but offered educational and training services. We've seen steady growth in leads over the last year and a half. Their multipronged marketing approach really helped; people have seen us in articles, white papers, and blogs. They now perceive us as experts in our field.

How did TribalVision perform from a project management standpoint?

We've consistently communicated, and their team is knowledgeable and highly responsive. We have weekly or biweekly meetings to ensure everyone understands our marketing plan and deliverables. We set benchmarks and goals to drive the project forward. Depending on the type of campaign, they provided us with statistics on our website's user traffic, website use, duration of time spent on the site, number of people who opened our drip-campaign emails, and more. TribalVision supplied us with scorecards for different campaigns so that we could assess what was working. We were then able to decide what areas of marketing we should invest in more, and what campaigns were not suited for us.

They have kept us on task and made sure that we’re aware of what’s happening. They've ensured that we meet and make decisions together in addition to managing the project process, plans, and next steps. They've been proactive throughout our collaboration, and they're quick to respond to issues or concerns. They also have kept overhead expenses low by working with international freelancers to optimize talent when outsourcing for services like web design, site content, drip campaigns, or other tasks. Although we only contract a set number of work hours per month, they don't just watch the clock. 

What did you find most impressive about them?

When we were looking at providers, we found was that most of them had specialized strengths: someone was building websites, someone else specialized in SEO, and so on. TribalVision was unique because it was able to start a partnership and act as our marketing department. They put together a marketing plan and strategy using our input. It was like having our own comprehensive marketing department in-house. 

They also prove that they're worth what we pay them. We work within 30-day contracts, so I won't be stuck in a long-term contract if they don't deliver results or I don't like their work. Their team is results driven, and their strength comes from having professional people who are knowledgeable about all aspects of marketing; they understand that marketing requires a multi-tiered approach.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We always strive for more, but I can’t complain about our growth.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

It’s important to understand what they bring to the table. An internal person may offer a certain skill set, but those skills aren't comparable to what TribalVision offers. Clients don’t need to be afraid of having an outsourced department instead of an internal one. They’re well-versed in working with small to medium-sized businesses, and they do their due diligence. You don't only get what you need, but you get a team with a lot of experience dealing with different things.

Feedback summary: 

Through TribalVision’s technological know-how, the marketing efforts have contributed to substantial growth in qualified B2B leads. The team’s reliability, responsiveness, and proactive project management continue to impress.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

My name is Paula Frias and I am the marketing director of Tanury Industries. We’re a family-owned electroplating and PVD service provider, in business for over 75 years.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with TribalVision?

We needed to bring a fresh approach to marketing for the company, utilizing the newest technology. I was familiar with Google AdWords and LinkedIn, but knew we needed help to get to the next level.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We utilize TribalVision as our marketing team. We decide which direction Tanury would like to go and they provide the knowhow and technology to make it happen. They’ve upgraded our website twice; the most recent redesign made the site responsive for mobile devices and tablets.

They do a lot of work with Google AdWords, targeting the landing pages for B2B qualified leads. They do some SEO and email marketing, as well as creating brochures and other marketing materials.

What is the team composition?

The composition of the team has changed over the years, but currently, my primary contact is a senior marketing associate. She has 2-3 other people on her team working with us.

How did you come to work with TribalVision?

Our chairman of the board attended a function where the founder of TribalVision was speaking. He was very impressed and invited Chris to come meet our team.

How much have you invested with them?

We spend a sizeable amount on a monthly retainer.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together about five years.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Previously, our marketing was misplaced in targeting B2C instead of B2B customers. We've seen a significant increase in solid B2B leads. Now the phone rings all day with solid leads.

Making the site responsive has also made a big difference because we found that many people were accessing the site on their phones and tablets.

TribalVision did a very good job making the marketing materials interesting, colorful, and cohesive.

How did TribalVision perform from a project management standpoint?

They are on the ball and do a great job keeping me on schedule. We’re in touch via email multiple times a day. They keep the projects moving forward so that I can focus on bringing in new business.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They listen really well, and that's so important. TribalVision understands that we have a solid reputation, and want to build on that to move the company forward.

Most marketing companies want to rebrand us, but our company doesn’t need to be rebranded. Most of our Google search results come from customers searching our name because it’s very well known in the industry.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I'm very happy with the team, especially the project leader.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Be open to new ideas and new technology.
