humm is a neuroscience company with a wearable patch to help you learn faster. The patch delivers electrical charge to the pre-frontal cortex of the brain responsible for memory and learning. When we first met humm they had just applied for the Plus Eight Accelerator and looking to scale up the team and investment. Ammo's first task was to build early access signups in order to support investment. Now our role in the team is ongoing strategic advice and delivery. We support the CMO and Founding team to build community and get their product to market.
humm needed a pre-launch campaign to drive traction and investment. After working with us for 6 months they raised $2.6M USD.
Early in the relationship we uncovered specific channels which work well for humm’s target market. Over time we have conducted a series of workshops and presentations to guide the team and to help bring interns and new team members up to speed.
Before the pandemic we travelled to San Francisco to visit the team. This got us closer to the product and gave us good exposure to the large wearable ecosystem that humm is part of.
Rapid testing allowed us to identify key channels for humm to focus on after the raise. This has supported continual growth and allowed them to prioritise marketing spend and changes to product.
When dealing with pre-launch products, social proof and alternative transactions are crucial for keeping up momentum. Together with the humm team, we meticulously tested and optimised the humm website to attract the most amount of email signups possible.
As of 2021, we've help Humm collect over 11,000 emails from prospective customers through website signups.
Ammo has continued to help humm focus on what channels were working best for them to grow their customer base.
This allowed the founders to focus on investment and leave the growing of their customer base to us.
