With today’s reality and fast-changing technological and business ecosystem, clients and marketers are collaborating with more and more agencies simultaneously, segmenting budget and looking for the specific skills or expertise they have no option but to find outside.
Agency reviews happen more often and collaboration tends to shrink in time and budget, which also means for agencies the need to renew their client base more often. According to a , 60% of agencies interviewed mentioned ‘Finding new clients’ as the main pain point in developing their agency.
Surprisingly, finding an agency is as much of a struggle for clients as finding clients is for an agency, as there is no central place to look for them. Many marketers nowadays rely on Google, on peers’ recommendations, and on consultancy services. These may work, but not all the time.
With the mission to solve these problems and to propose an alternative for agency search, Ad World Masters created the first worldwide agency ranking powered by AI!
An easily identifiable score ranks agencies from 0 to 10 based on a growing database of agencies. ADWM AI algorithms use over 160 parameters to score agencies, allowing marketers to cut through the noise in the blink of an eye and quickly identify good agencies.
The score is also a mark of trust for agencies which complements their story by showing their value on a global scale to current and potential clients.
Marketers and agencies are often looking for what they call the ‘right fit’ or ‘chemistry’ between the brand and the agency. Which indeed is an important part of business success for both sides. Particularly important for long-term relationships, it remains important for marketers to get what they need from their agency from the very start, even for short-term collaborations. However, it is no surprise to say that the agency market is highly diversified. has found that 52% of marketers interviewed believed that websites of agencies failed to communicate the agency difference, which altogether are some of the reasons that make looking for the ideal agency candidates a challenging task.
