Feedback summary: 

(un)Common Logic created 90-day strategies each quarter to outpace their goals. They adapted to Google changes and ensured that the retailer was included in Google Ads product betas to maximize potential returns. As a result, they grew the account by 40% year over year with an 8%–15% market growth.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We're one of the top online prescription eyewear retailers in the US and Canada. I'm the Marketing Director and I'm responsible for all acquisition and retention tactics as well as all the A&P budget management.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire (un)Common Logic?

They worked with us for over 10 years in multiple marketing channels, but more prominently on PPC (Paid Search, Display and Shopping).

What were your goals for this project?

They were tasked with constant yearly top line growth of 40%+, which they delivered consistently and overachieved in the most recent years.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

They were selected before I arrived, but I believe it was a personal referral since they took the account from almost 0 to over 7 figures per month in spend.

Describe the project in detail.

They were tasked with developing strategies to ensure that we were the leading company in paid search for online eyewear retail. They had 90 day strategic plans and Quarterly business reviews conducted regularly.

They constantly adjusted to google changes and made sure we were included in all beta products of google advertising to ensure we were maximizing our potential. We had to guide them at times, but they were also very proactive and open to feedback.

What was the team composition?

The most recent: Account Director Account Senior Manager Two Junior Account members

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Just by being able to grow the account 40% YoY with a market growth of 8-15%... shows they're able to outperform other industry players by far.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Quite effective, we work overseas (china vs. austin) and there was little issues with communication, very irrelevant. They were 100% available over phone, sms, email, etc.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Outside of the results, their commitment and their ability to be nimble and adaptable to our requests. They were really outstanding as a team, and, as people, they felt more like an extension of our company rather than a 'vendor.'

Are there any areas for improvement?

They need to be more adaptable to work with big-data and analytics to ensure they stay at the forefront, especially for large clients.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the Director of Communications at CASA of Travis County, a nonprofit empowering volunteer advocates in the child welfare system that is a state and national leader in the CASA/GAL network.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire (un)Common Logic?

We were looking for better recruitment results from our paid social efforts. (un)Common Logic restructured our account and implemented a testing plan to make and keep our efforts data-driven. In the first six months, we had a 55% increase in average weekly results and 2019 ended up being our best recruitment year yet.

What were your goals for this project?

Our goal was to recruit more volunteer advocates for children than ever before.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

They were recommended to us via connections from our Board of Directors, and after meeting with (un)Common Logic, there was no question about wanting to work with them!

Describe the project in detail.

We have drastically expanded our digital advertising budget for the purpose of recruiting new and more diverse volunteer advocates to serve children in the Child Protective Services system. We worked with a creative marketing team to develop a new recruitment message and testimonial campaign, but we needed serious support in the distribution of these great new messages. We reached out to (un)Common Logic to bring in the desperately-needed expertise in targeting and optimizing our digital ad campaigns.

What was the team composition?

We've had wonderful conversations with the CEO, the Director of Sales & Marketing, and the Director of Client Operations, and we work regularly with their SEM & SEO Analysts.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Since (un)Common Logic restructured our social media campaigns, we’ve had a 55% increase in average weekly results. We reached our highest volunteer recruitment rate of all time in 2019, and numbers are already looking great for 2020. We saw a 32% increase in the diversity of our volunteers which was a specific goal of our advertising efforts.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We meet via Zoom every other week to check in on our ad campaigns and make adjustments. The team is incredibly responsive and wonderful to work with.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

Beyond all of the great results we've seen since turning over our digital advertising to (un)Common Logic, we really enjoy the people at this company. They are generous, fun, and all-around lovely to work with.

Are there any areas for improvement?

None that we've seen!

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the Marketing Director for a Manufacturing Operational and Safety Excellence Consulting Company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire (un)Common Logic?

We hired (un)Common Logic to build and manage our SEM efforts, sponsored social media advertising, and optimize our SEO.

What were your goals for this project?

The initial goal was for UCL to audit our current PPC account structure and provide recommendations for this channel. As we have continued to grow our partnership, our goal is to increase brand awareness and generate new leads.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

UCL was a vendor of mine at my previous company.

Describe the project in detail.

Upon working with UCL, they audited our current PPC account structure to determine if best practices were in place and optimize the account. From there, they helped to restructure the account, implement proper tagging, build out conversions, and manage our ads.

With the success garnered in this channel we expanded to sponsored social posts on LinkedIn utilizing their knowledge of our offering and best practices. We have since grown our partnership to include SEO content reviews, content development recommendations, and other SEO tactics.

What was the team composition?

Initially we had 1 account director and an SEM specialist. The team has now expanded to include an SEO specialist and CRO specialist. Each member is responsible for implementing different actions for each of the projects we are running. Our daily communication happens with our account manager, however, the team is very flexible and always available.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

From 2018-2019, we increased our spend by 44% and saw an increase in leads by 59% and a 10% decrease in CPL. On the SEO standpoint, we saw an increase in traffic of 24%, a 200% increase in form fills, and visibility was up 44%. These results far surpassed our expectations and given UCL's consistent performance, we have been able to steadily grow the channel.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We have a standing meeting to review weekly performance and discuss any recent or upcoming actions. It is a 1 year phone call each week. Outside of this, we communicate over email as needed throughout the week and they are always available my phone if anything comes up.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

UCL feels like an extension of my team. They took the time to understand our business and how we work. They are respectful, responsive, and thoughtful in their recommendations. Before implementing any changes we thoroughly review and UCL always gives us time to discuss and ask questions and ensure that we understand what is changing, why, and what we can expect to see. They are open and honest about where they are spending our marketing dollars and the results we are seeing.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Due to the nature of managing tasks over email, there can sometimes be a delay or miss in communication. It would be nice to have a better tracker for action items coming out of meetings. We have worked to implement Google docs which has certainly helped!

RESULTS & FEEDBACK
