Since Exceptional Services Agency began in 2016, we’ve provided our services to a variety of businesses. On every project we undertake, our most important objective is to relate with clients and understand their core necessities and goals. Below are some examples of the work we’ve done - take a look, and get in touch to learn more.
How Exceptional Services Helped Up On Deck Start a New Business
Up On Deck is a navy-owned business that sells custom flight deck jerseys to the flight deck crew on Navy ships. With so much competition, it’s difficult for new brands to stand out and claim a slice of the market share.
To achieve our goal of helping Up On Deck become a viable and successful business, we utilized the Lean Startup Methodology and combined it with Tactical Marketing to reach new customers and quickly scale.
This approach helped us reach the appropriate customers, such as Department heads looking to order jerseys in bulk, and also provided the analytic insights necessary to make data-based decisions.
“Exceptional Services Agency has been instrumental in increasing our online visibility and lead generation from social media campaigns. We have seen an increase in visibility and sales have doubled since working with Exceptional Services.”

Implemented Lean Startup Method
Leveraging the lean methodology allowed us to develop products that flight deck crews already wanted but weren’t prevalent on the market: custom jerseys.
Rapid A/B Testing
To quickly get products to market and build inventory, we conducted multiple A/B experiments to determine which designs would be most likely to sell.
Deployed Tactical Marketing
With military-precision thanks to analytic reporting, we were able to pinpoint the channels where we could target the right customers at the lowest cost.
Made Data Driven Decisions
Running A/B experiments for designs, choosing the marketing channels, and customer targeting are some examples of how we relied on analytic data.
Successfully launched product lines for Officers, Air, and Weps
Created a long-term process for quickly scaling new designs

How Agile Marketing Methods Were Used to Double Yearly Revenue
Love My Do’ is a full service luxury salon suite servicing the greater Kenner, Louisiana community. Since 2014, Love My Do’ has helped countless clients get the luxury hair they want.
While Love My Do’ had a steady clientele, Instagram and word of mouth were the only ways the salon reached new clientele. They knew they needed to get target messaging in front of the right people, but how? That’s when Exceptional Services Agency helped implement agile marketing methods.
“We’ve achieved much success. Since working with Exceptional Services, we have been booked consistently — so much that we had to stop taking new clients for a while. In addition, we have been able to eliminate waste and saved $15,000, while doubling our revenue year to date. We also began selling other products that have contributed to our revenue.”
--Love My Do’ Salon
Kenner, Louisiana has an annualized growth rate of 0.447% and median income increase of 4.62%. Instagram and word of mouth were not enough for Love My Do’ to keep pace with the growth of the city.
Exceptional Services Agency helped Love My Do’ implement Agile Marketing methods. This included rapid iterations and testing, focusing on individual interactions over mass reach, streamlining internal collaboration through silos and hierarchy, and responding to real-time results rather than sticking to a predetermined plan.
We chose to focus on the tactics and benefits of marketing, rather than the theory of marketing.
Doubled revenue year-over-year
Eliminated waste in advertising budget and internal hours
Created a replicable marketing plan that can be utilized anytime in the future
How Using Lean Methodology Helped Cut Cost and Tripled Registration Rates
After launching a child care center, the team at Royal Learning Academy found themselves looking at their internal processes in a whole new light. While their child care services were excellent, they were limited by a lack of an accounting system as well as an inefficient process for onboarding new clients. They knew they needed to cut costs and increase registration rates, but how? That’s when the team at Royal Learning Academy discovered Lean Methodology.
“We’ve tripled our registration rates and had to create a waiting list. Exceptional Services helped us to get organized by creating processes to help us see where we were wasting time and other resources. In addition, they automated some of our tasks so we can focus on other important duties that bring value to our business.”
What Is Lean Methodology?
In short, Lean Methodology is a continuous improvement cycle. By optimizing the resources (people, funding, effort, energy) of an organization to create value for the customer, both the business and its services improve.
Exceptional Services Agency assisted the Royal Learning Academy in implementing the kanban system to create a regulated workflow and monitor tasks. The new process allowed the leadership team at the academy to set the work pace while maintaining quality.
In Japanese, the word “kan” means visual and the word “ban” means card. The kanban system utilizes visual cards to streamline internal processes and deliver an enhanced customer experience.
Cut costs by 30% through implementing automated processes and eliminating waste.
Tripled registration rates while improving the accounting and record keeping systems.
Provided management a workflow to monitor tasks and set the work pace.
