Advertising Agency Search Consultants Discuss 5 Comments

Big companies like to hire advisers to help them select an ad agency. Typically, these matchmakers send out invites to the agencies they think would fit the client the best- and then run some sort of creative show-down. It’s one way to pick an agency- but it almost guarantees that clients will only be looking at large agencies- since they are the only ones who can afford to spend un-billable time on speculative work. Gambling on an agency as a partner never seemed to make sense to me- but, since it does happen, we thought we’d provide a list of the search consultants we were aware of. If you’d like to have your firm added to this list- please drop us a line.

We’ve posted some thoughts on picking the right ad agency and have them under a topic “How to select an ad agency”

Of course- for a lot less than you pay the consultants- or what you are going to pay the big agencies that they are used to putting on parade, you could spend a very reasonable amount with us- and see if we come up with the next big thing for you. Most times- even in the big shops, it’s still just an art director and a copywriter, working together that come up with the big idea. Why not try the people who are smart enough to get you to this page?
