First, Why Should Ladder Be On Your Radar?

Ladder is a global growth marketing agency (and might be the largest growth agency too). What that ultimately means is that Ladder is uniquely suited to help companies across most timezones, and we can ensure that each of our partners has a dedicated team of technical marketers, strategists, and analysts. We even have a growing data science team (and that’s where it gets really interesting for any company spending tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars on digital strategy).

Interested in some fancy numbers? We’ve launched (and recorded) over 7,000 marketing experiments across 200+ companies and $40M in marketing spend. And our digital strategy success rates are 300% above average.

*mind blown*

Ladder believes in ROI-driven strategy, because modern companies need something more than just “data-driven”.

Going above and beyond other digital strategy agencies, Ladder looks to productize our collective expertise. For example, we built a digital strategy database a used it to fuel an internal marketing tactic recommendation engine with machine learning. We also build a system to automate creative analysis and audit most platforms at scale. 

As full-service digital strategy agency we scale PPC accounts, fix conversion rates, and crack new and unique chanels. And Ladder’s talented in-house design and copywriting teams handle landing pages, emails, and ad creative. Clutch has recognized our success in that regard and lists Ladder among the top digital strategy agencies in New York.

Second, What Is Clutch And Why Should You Care?

Clutch is a B2B ratings and reviews platform that allows companies to research and select a firm for their upcoming projects. You can search their site listings and find a company that is shown to be reliable and a good fit for the job, based on the information in their reviews and company profile. Clutch ranks all service providers based on their industry and location – and ensures that users are seeing the most relevant and qualified options.

Two scores are assigned to all companies listed on the site by Clutch analysts:

  1. Focus – A reflection of a company’s expertise with a given service.
  2. Ability to Deliver – A reflection of client reviews, work experience, and market presence.

Client reviews are collected and verified by the analyst team, who will interview past clients on the phone or online about previous projects. This process allows Clutch to post details about the overall job and the client’s relationship with the service provider throughout the entire project.

P.S. Ladder has a 4.8/5 star rating 🙂

Exibit A

Recently, we were hired by a vitamin and supplement startup to develop and execute a marketing strategy for over 10 different products that each appealed to different buyer personas. The goal of the project was to increase new customer acquisition while simultaneously decreasing acquisition costs.

  • First, we audited the client’s paid channels.
  • Next, we developed advertising deliverables and landing pages before deploying and then evaluated their performance.
  • We used that information to adjust and optimize.
  • This process included messaging/value proposition tests for upcoming product launches and figure out the optimal creative tone, graphics, language, and audience for each of the products.

This is what the client said about working with us:

They are the most skilled digital team I’ve worked with.
– Digital Marketing Manager, Vitamin & Supplement Startup

Another detials how we built the growth strategy for a new SaaS product that was very different than the client’s existing offerings. The client’s goal for the project was to acquire trial users. After opportunities for messaging and advertising were identified, we created ads and launched them on multiple social media channels aimed at multiple targets and segments. The ads drove qualified traffic to a new landing pages that we created. We also tested follow-up engagements, copy, and functionality.

Thousands signed up for the product even before it was even launched. After the successful campaign, our client was happy to speak with Clutch to relay some specifics:

The cost per lead was one-tenth of our initial projections. We spent less money and generated way more leads than anticipated. Since then, we’ve adjusted metrics to improve the quality of leads without increasing the cost too much. We’re now seeing great progress with that effort.
