The top marketing agencies..
That’s tough. The whole agency model is so insanely oversaturated like there’s so many small-mid size agencies making outlandish claims that it’s become really difficult to know which ones are actually industry leaders.
I think finding true answers regarding that would require some rabbit hole digging through twitter and sifting through people you personally trust and who they are engaging with over time. That’s the only reliable way to know who is actually winning in the industry.
There’s a small % of superstar agencies that thrive because they essentially monopolize audiences. And most of the ones that do that are based in NY, Silicon Valley, areas where they leverage their network and have plentiful of networking opportunities. Beyond that subset, I felt like it was time to make a real list.
I’ll start by putting it together for you. I’m gonna include my top picks then some links to ranking lists. I think it’s hard to just list off the “top 5 agencies” because there’s just so much variability between agencies now. Considering the vast differences in what niches they can specialize in, the budget sizes they deal with, etc
Also another factor, especially in the bigger cities the reason why there can be so many different “top agencies” that are all doing well is because they tend to have a more collaborative environment with each other rather than directly competing. And a big reason why most of them are willing to collaborate is because being in a big city where there’s so many different agencies it forces you to niche down to a very specific specialization.
So you’ll get tons of agencies but they all prioritize things slightly differently. They all pretty much do the same thing, or are capable of doing the same thing, but for their own marketability they create a very niched down brand story.
