What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
After hiring them we found ourselves in a lot of local publications right away. They produced some of our best articles, which gained us a ton of new business partnerships. As a result of their work, we have been mentioned in some of the highest caliber national publications. When people tell me they have heard of us, I attribute it to Yulu.
How did Yulu Public Relations perform from a project management standpoint?
They were really good. I worked with a few different people at Yulu and each one had their own style, but everyone was always engaged and attentive. We communicated over email, but if I had to call them after working hours they always answered and were clearly happy to be working with us. They would also put together monthly review statements for us that were very helpful and professional.
What did you find most impressive about them?
They are very focused on social impact and how that ties into the communications space, which is something no one else in Vancouver is doing. The fact they are trying to wield their power for good in the local, national, and even international community is really impressive to me.
Are there any areas they could improve?
As wonderful as I believe their community engagement is, we couldn’t always find an alignment between that and what my business needed in order to grow. This was more of a misalignment between our brands and not a reflection of their agency. In the financial sector, it is sometimes hard to have the same social objective they do.
