Our standard hours of operation are between 08:00 – 18:00, Monday to Friday. However, we understand that emergencies can happen, or that waiting until the next working day for assistance might not be ideal.

Onboarding FAQ

We’ll spend some time analyzing your digital marketing goals and budget, conducting research, and creating a winning strategy.

Once finalized, we’ll submit this plan to you and can then discuss whether you would like to proceed with it

Quotes are sent within 1-3 working days after you’ve gotten in touch with us (depending on the scope of what your brand is looking to accomplish.

Your onboarding officially begins!

Our onboarding process is purpose-built to ensure a smooth transition between sales, finance, and production. An easy and seamless client experience in this transition is of paramount importance.

Our process involves finalizing contracts, connecting with Accounting, assigning dedicated strategists, and conducting thorough kick-off meetings. 

Finalizing Contracts:

Upon receiving a signed SOW, your New Business Strategist at Digitopia will connect with the CEO of our company to review the contract, countersign the agreement, and send it back to you for your records.


Within 72 hours of receiving a signed SOW, our Accounting Department will be in touch with a request for initial payment. 

Dedicated Strategist:

For multi-service clients, you will be assigned a dedicated Account Strategist as your main point of contact. Unlike the typical “overloaded Account Manager,” your strategist only leads a handful of clients. This allows each strategist the time needed to immerse themselves completely in your brand. Your strategist will act as a seamless extension of your internal team.

Initial Audit & Kickoff Meeting:

Prior to the client kickoff meeting, the team will have requested access to all necessary platforms and reporting tools, which will be used to perform an initial audit of all relevant systems and past marketing activities.

Your account team will come prepared for the workshop-style kickoff meeting (3-6 hours) with additional questions and recommendations on how to prioritize your digital marketing opportunities.

In this meeting, all stakeholders will review a detailed project/service timeline as well as examples of deliverables that will be developed within the first 8 weeks. Additionally, we’ll work through a series of discovery and planning exercises that span subjects such as: sales process and performance, marketing goals and current performance, market segmentation, buyer personas, content marketing, advertising channels, and more.

You will have two main points of contact: your account manager and strategy expert.

Your account manager will be your main point of contact, handling your day-to-day queries and ensuring you are always up-to-date on your marketing campaign’s progress.

Your strategy expert is an experienced professional that specializes in a particular core service at SSG (e.g. an SEO specialist or web developer).

They are responsible for the execution of your online marketing campaigns.

You’ll be able to communicate with both your account manager and strategy expert in meetings or via email.

For longer status/reporting meetings, we will coordinate a frequency based on your preferences. This can be weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly.

Otherwise, during the ongoing running of your account, we will communicate with you (telephonically or via email) as often as is necessary. We understand how important timely feedback can be, so you can expect any email queries to be responded to within 1 working day.

We’ll also keep you informed about deadlines and task completions where applicable.

Ultimately, your satisfaction is what is most important to us. We want to help you, and we will – whether by partnering or by parting ways.

Should you decide that you don’t want to work with us, we will gladly refer you on to a different consultant or agency who might be better suited for your project.

Similarly, if we don’t think we’d be the right digital marketing agency to execute your campaign, we’ll put you in touch with one that is.

We’ve spent time developing connections with other marketing companies, and will only refer you on to those we trust.

Billing & Contract Terms

Bank Transfers:

This is an easy and secure way to pay. You will submit your bank information electronically when you receive your invoice via email.

We hold bank accounts in South Africa and Europe.

No, there are never any hidden costs with Loom. We cover all of our work in the set monthly retainer. However, you’ll need to cover any biddable media spend such as Google Ads, Microsoft Ads, and Facebook Ads. This is billed separately to our management fee.

Contact your strategist via email to request a cancellation of services.

Recurring Service SOW’s must be terminated with at least 90 days written notice (a “rolling 90” agreement).

There are three types of potential SOW’s that may be established between Digitopia and its clients.

Project SOWs:

Project SOWs are services that start and complete over four (4) or more weeks. In order to commence the SOW, a payment of 50% of the total investment is due on or before the date of the kick-off workshop (“kick-off”). The second and final invoice for the remaining balance of the total investment will be sent when the scope of work is complete. This invoice is “due upon receipt.” Project SOW’s are priced as a flat-rate. Project pricing can vary greatly ($10k-100k) due to the amount of work that a client may or may not need to establish their foundation, or what we call an “ecosystem.”

On-Demand SOWs:

On-Demand SOWs are services that start and complete in less than four (4) weeks. Payment is due upon completion of an On-Demand SOW. On-Demand SOWs are priced hourly. Hourly rates range from R550-R650 per hour, depending on the service requested.

Recurring Service SOWs:

Recurring Service SOWs are services that repeat on a monthly basis. Payments are due on or before the 1st of each service month. Recurring Service SOW’s are priced as a flat-rate on a monthly recurring basis. Recurring service pricing can vary greatly (R10k-50k per month) due to the number of areas of our client’s “ecosystem” that we manage and execute. Our pricing does not include advertising spend as those fees are paid directly to advertising channels.


We do not offer pay-for-performance terms with our agreements due to the long-term approach of a quality program. For this reason, only a small percentage of your investment can be measured for ROI within the same period that the investment was made – the majority of your investment will result in assets that drive audience growth long after our work is done.

We use Sage Cloud Accounting for invoicing and accounting. Invoices are set up with the payment schedule and terms as described in your signed master services agreement (MSA).

Initial invoice(s) will be sent out within the first few days of signing, with the option of paying via EFT directly from the invoice.

We only accept EFT. Cash deposit will incur charges which will be billed back to the client.

Each project we work on is specific to the business we are working with. As a result, we do not use a standardized pricing model. Each campaign is tailored to the business we are working with based on what they are looking to achieve and how we can get them there. If you’re interested in getting a custom quote that will produce value and make sense to you in the long term, please give us a call or fill out our contact form. One of our sales representatives will learn more about your business and provide you with your own custom quote.
