Ipsos Aggregated Reviews
On a side note, I did an IHUT for a large home fragrance company a while back with IPSOS. When they send you an IHUT package, they take everything out of the box that the parent company wanted you to have and replace it with their own branded letterheads, instructions, and contact email, in a new box. They tried to stiff me once that way. I reached out to the parent company (the fragrance company) on their Facebook page and told them about the IHUT and how IPSOS wouldn’t pay (or that they’d only pay $0.90 for what was supposed to be a $50 IHUT; IPSOS messed up a little and forgot to remove part of the survey invite where they mentioned the exact payment, which I took a screenshot of). The company said they were aware of the IHUT through IPSOS but not that they were taking such a huge chunk of my payment (they said the $50 was my portion and that IPSOS had already been paid a fee). I showed them all my screenshots and the emails I exchanged with IPSOS with them refusing payment. They thanked me for my participation, sent me a gift card directly that was separate from the IHUT payment as an apology for the inconvenience they said, and said they would be speaking with IPSOS. Pissed the hell outta IPSOS, but I got my money. I’m sure Swagbucks does this, too, with surveys, but they’ve yet to tamper with an IHUT.

As a web agency we never could and never will be able to escape the urge of building things.
Among million other things we played with an idea of text-based games and the last piece that was missing was the story itself. So via in-house outreach platform we found two established writers that believed in the project and agreed to participate.
Shout out to Richard Abbott who wrote Fraud on Thetis and Eva Pohler who sent us a huge draft we are still reading through.
At some point we realised that list building, fetching contact details & outreach tech work just as well for b2b lead generation
Once, we fell in love with ecommerce, because of short feedback cycles on marketing & development efforts.
Today we ship into production inhouse SaaS project - AVOKADO - the web app for learning languages with flash cards.
The year after we built it we realised how long is the road map ahead & what resources we'd need to promote it and decided to put it on hold.
One day as we ship GRIN tech v3.0 into production we'll distrupt the language learning market with Avokado.
