Prior to working with TapClicks, Imagemark was having trouble offering the same level of reporting delivered by their competitors.
As a mid-sized local agency, they were competing against major companies and were losing to their competition because they couldn’t offer the same level of reporting. Imagemark’s Digital Marketing Manager, Chris Downing, understood the importance of reporting early on after joining Imagemark. Coming from an agency background, he knew that clients needed a seamless reporting system in place that was efficient and easy to use for both Imagemark’s employees and their customers.
Chris initially tried using Canva to create reports, which was extremely time-consuming and rudimentary. From there, he tried Tableau, Supermetrics, DashThis, and several others. After deciding to go with DashThis, he quickly realized that every client needed a custom dashboard created to review analytics each month, totaling 2-3 hours per report per client. With 16 clients, Chris was spending 48+ hours each month reporting before their integration with TapClicks. He was in dire need of a platform that would not only allow him to create custom dashboards for their clients but that also wouldn’t make reporting nearly as frustrating, time-consuming, and cumbersome.
TapClicks created a custom dashboard where Imagemark could connect all of their clients in one place.
Chris can now go into the dashboard and change the view for each client when he wants to review an individual client’s analytics or pull their monthly reports. They were able to set up a native integration through TapClick’s Connector Marketplace, which helped significantly streamline the process of importing their data. In doing so, Imagemark was able to merge their data with other marketing sources to review analytics and compile reports quickly. Chris set up a different login for each client through TapClick’s platform, offering a competitive reporting experience where clients can track their marketing campaigns in an easy-to-use portal they can access at any time. Chris can customize the TapClicks dashboard and all reports with client branding, making reports more polished and professional. White label branding was something that was important to Imagemark, and TapClicks was able to deliver on that.
“Overall, TapClicks has made our life easier. After going through multiple reporting tools, our clients now trust us thanks to the high level of reporting we can provide through TapClicks."
