OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address?

"We wanted assistance with marketing and digital media for two conferences we were organizing in China."

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

"Linked facilitated the whole process with minimal services fees. A rep planned and organized the building of and assisted with managing our WeChat account since many of our usual media platforms are not allowed in China. They helped with content and visibility by providing translation and linking with contacts."

How did you come to work with them?

How much have you invested with them?

"We spent $6,500 on their services for two Chinese conferences."

What is the status of this engagement?

"We began working with them in 2018 and we collaborated again in 2019. We can’t hold any events this year in China because of the novel coronavirus outbreak. However, we will resume our collaboration with them in the future."

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

"We don’t have any specific metrics because we had never worked in China before our engagement, so there’s nothing to compare. However, I was happy with their services. They increased our visibility and were quick to respond to our questions. I felt like our customers were taken care of."

How did Linked Partnering Agency perform from a project management standpoint?

"We couldn’t use some of our preferred project management tools because they aren’t available in China. We mostly communicated with them directly through our WeChat account."

What did you find most impressive about them? 

"I was impressed by their friendliness and their fluency in both English and Mandarin. They were able to translate perfectly between the two languages. The team was readily available whenever we needed something. We were even able to visit their offices in Shanghai, and they were very hospitable."

Are there any areas they could improve?

"Not really."

Do you have advice for potential customers?
