Top Advertising Agencies & Ad Firms

  2. Advertising

What advertising is best for your business? There’s paid search advertising in search engines; social media advertising across Facebook, LinkedIn, and Twitter; display advertising; remarketing – the list goes on, and that’s just for online advertising. Traditional advertising such as print, radio, and TV ads, as well as out of home advertising on billboards, buses, and benches each come with unique benefits. So, if you believe advertising can help you meet key business metrics and boost your revenue, consider hiring an advertising agency to help you identify the best types of ads and ad mediums for your business. An advertising firm will ask about business goals, brand message, and the products and services you’re marketing. From there, the ad agency will put together a plan for you to review, approve, and test.

Browse our list of the top advertising agencies to find a partner for your next project. Use these case studies, ratings, and reviews to find an ad firm that matches your style and project needs. Learn what questions to ask when hiring an ad agency.

Need Help Finding a Company?

Marketing and advertising experts share advice for clients looking for a partner for their next project.

 

What questions would you recommend clients ask the marketing or advertising agency they are considering hiring for their next project?

Experts recommend asking marketing and advertising agencies:

  1. Have you worked on a project like this before? What about in this industry?
  2. What strategies or processes do you use to execute on their client’s goals?
  3. How do you measure success?
  4. What am I paying for? What is the cost-breakdown by specific service?

Choosing the right partner for an advertising or marketing campaign can be tough. Here are some tips from a few experts to help guide you in making the right decision.

Understand Their History of Work

Erin Milnes, Creative Director at Catchword suggests starting by asking potential advertising partners if any of their experience aligns with your specific challenge.

”What experience do you have in my sector and with my challenge? What is your process and who will be working with me? What deliverable are they responsible for?” Milnes said. “Then after interviewing the agency, ask yourself: Were you comfortable asking questions, and were they comfortable answering? Did their answers make sense? Rapport is critical in creative services.”

Align on Approach to the Project

Joshua Coffman, Founder of 502ads recommends focusing on understanding how agile your partner is in their approach to marketing and advertising by asking these two questions:

  1. Does your company have more than one path or method to support the goals of my business?
  2. What would each of those paths look like in execution?

Ask About Your Specific Needs

Preston Powel, Chief Marketing Officer at Webserv cautions that clients should ask their potential partners different questions based on their specific needs.

“Appropriate questions vary from project to project. If I was looking for paid search, for example, I would ask about bidding strategies and account structure. For organic search, however, I would ask about their off-page strategy.”

Keep Success Top of Mind

Christopher Lara, Boston Branch Manager at TheeDigital Boston says the most important question to ask potential advertising partners is: How do you measure success?

“The way an agency measures success can be very telling. Success takes time and planning — and, it should be measurable.” Lara said. “At TheeDigital, when we lay out a one-year marketing plan, we set expected milestones along the way to help show we’re making progress toward our goals.”

Discuss Payment Upfront

Nasir Jamali, Operations Manager at BrandLume knows that money is an important factor in any partnership and recommends clients ask potential partners to outline what specific services they would be paying for.

“If you don’t understand where your money is going, it will only lead to disappointment and confusion for both you and the agency you are working with,” Jamali said. “Agencies will often suggest $2,000 worth of SEO without the client knowing how SEO works. It doesn’t come from a place of malice, but most of the time marketers and advertisers will forget that some clients don’t even know what SEO stands for.”
