Feedback summary: 

The final video received positive feedback from stakeholders and will be integrated into marketing and pitch materials. What a Story’s work consistently arrived on time and within the budget. Their team took the lead on the project while remaining open to feedback, making for an effortless workflow.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m a digital marketing executive for a large online party service provider.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire What a Story?

We engaged What a Story to create a promotional explainer video for our company.

What were your goals for this project?

We wanted to explain our services and offerings to new customers through a quick animated video (that also reflects our branding).

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I came across Naagendra (Business Development Manager, What a Story) through Clutch three months ago. What a Story’s portfolio impressed me enough that we hired their team to complete this project.

Describe the video(s) and the process in detail.

We provided our video requirements first. What a Story came back to us with a script one week later. After making adjustments, the team began end-to-end video development—from storyboarding to the first mockup to the final video. They delivered a finished product within three weeks.

What was your vendors' project management or feedback process?

What a Story coordinated the entire project independently from start to finish. The team provided constant progress updates and made any requested changes immediately.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The video has received positive feedback from prospective customers and stakeholders. We’re using it in our social media channels, sales pitch, and email marketing. We plan to launch it on our website as well. We couldn’t be happier with What a Story’s final product.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

I primarily interfaced with Naagendra, but I also interacted with a project manager for day-to-day tasks. Their team behind the scenes delivered all work on time and within our budget. We had an excellent experience collaborating with them.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

What a Story provided a high level of technical expertise for very reasonable prices. 

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, we’re highly satisfied with their work. What a Story was straightforward and flexible to work with. We’d happily work with them again for future projects, and we highly recommend them to anyone new to the production process.

I’m the founder of Youngtycoons. As a startup school, we provide entrepreneurship training, mentoring, and support with setting up a complete ecosystem. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire What a Story?

We hired What a Story to lead a complete branding project and support our advertising efforts.

What were your goals for this project?

As the first business of our kind in India, we wanted to establish awareness and trust within the market.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We had worked on multiple projects together previously, so I was familiar with the quality of their service.

Describe the scope of their work in detail.

What a Story initially focused on understanding the scope of work required for our project. They took the time to prepare and plan before executing the complete project. Starting with the logo design, they progressed on to building our website, creating stationery, and designing our marketing collateral.

What was the team composition?

We worked with a five-person team from What a Story comprised of two designers, two developers, and a project manager.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The quality of the work What a Story produced was very good. We received a great response to our entrepreneurship bootcamps after we launched them.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

We established our collaboration method using the agile process. On a daily basis, we held 15-minute phone calls to check in on the progress.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

What a Story’s quality work and timely delivery impressed me.

Are there any areas for improvement?

Their price point is high. If they reduced the service charge, I bet they could capture more of the market.
