Searching for a ad agency in Birmingham, USA that suits your needs is not always simple. Using search engines to find agencies can often mean a series of false starts, wasting time and resources. AgencyComparison’s free and intelligent comparison tool has been developed to counter this problem, matching your business with the ad agency in Birmingham, USA that suits it best. To go through our step-by-step guide below, begin by registering with AgencyComparison for free.
What are the Benefits of Comparing Agencies?
Comparison tools have long been popular for a variety of services, resulting in a host of benefits for both suppliers and buyers. At AgencyComparison, we realised that the wants of a client and the capabilities of an agency do not always match one another, with one or both parties often becoming unsatisfied with a lack of progress.
That is why we developed our smart comparison platform. Unlike comparison tools for energy or insurance providers that search solely for the cheapest deal available, our comparison tool has been developed to match agency and clients as accurately as possible whilst still considering budget. This is achieved by a variety of factors:
- Our use of AI, machine learning and data science.
- A thorough maintenance of accounts on our platform.
- Our years of experience working with agencies from a range of sectors.
- The intuitively simple design of our platform allowing buyers to search effectively.
By using our fair and competitive platform, you may unearth an exciting ad agency in Birmingham, USA that is not as established when using typical agency sourcing methods. Here are just some of the unique areas that agency comparison can develop for your business:
Will There Be More Agencies Available to Me?
One of the more obvious and stand out benefits of our comparison tool is the increased range of agencies available to you by using it. By simply having more agencies available to you, the chances of finding one that fits your business’s requirements increases significantly.
With more established agencies often having the most noticeable presence online, it is easy to assume that they will have the biggest impact on a project. This, however, is not always the case. The needs and expectations of clients vary widely. So, while the most well-known ad agency in Birmingham, USA has made a name for itself, this does mean that this will also be the case for your business. By providing as wide a selection to choose from as possible, your business can compare and contrast the individual merits of each agency with the unique demands of your project in mind. Whether this is an agency’s history, or its unique selling points, using our comparison tool can allow for a more balanced overview of the options available to you. By placing a range of agencies side-by-side, those that don’t fit with your project can be quickly ruled out in favour of those better suited. This means that less time is wasted researching various agencies or in discussion with them.
How does AgencyComparison Guarantee Effective Matching?
Another benefit that results from using AgencyComparison’s unique tool is that you have much greater control over your relationship with your selected ad agency in Birmingham, USA. From the tailored selection process that allows you to handpick the agencies that directly offer the most to your project, to relationship maintenance, we promise that clients will be satisfied with their supplier.
Once an agency has been selected for your project, both the supplier and yourself are provided with a mutual NDA template. This is done so that your relationship is protected from the beginning. By ensuring that both parties are comfortable sharing their unique ideas and methods with each other, the relationship can be sure to have no early limitations. Once this NDA template has been signed, we strongly recommend that this is then uploaded to our platform, for each party’s peace of mind.
It may also be that, for whatever reason, you are unhappy with an agency’s progress for your project. Should this occur, we promise to mediate the relationship or, if required, find a replacement supplier. This means that you do not need to worry about a drawn out process when switching suppliers for your contract should you be unsatisfied.
Will I have More Control by Comparing Agencies?
When searching for a ad agency in Birmingham, USA through more typical routes, such as search engines or word of mouth, it is common to commit to an agency without their approach to your project being properly demonstrated. When using AgencyComparison.com, you have much more insight into what an agency will do for your project and, therefore, more control over the relationship.
By being able to compare and contrast agencies before making any contractual commitments, there is no need for risk or guesswork when it comes to picking an agency. Similarly, an agency’s work history and feedback is user-defined. So, unlike the very best testimonials that will often be found on an agency’s website, all ratings are sourced from other projects they have taken on within AgencyComparison.com.
With the dense marketing language and dense terminology that it is easy to come across when researching a ad agency in Birmingham, USA, it can often be difficult to determine which is best for your project. When using AgencyComparison, your project comes first. By clearly outlining your project, you can quickly receive project-specific pitches from your favourite shortlisted agencies. This makes the selection process significantly easier. When an agency’s pitch directly discusses the ways in which your project will be managed, it is much easier to determine which agency is most likely to produce the best results.
Project-specificity in the selection process also means that you may discover smaller agencies that are just as effective despite not being as established as others. It may be, for example, that your project will be developed best by the specialist approach of a smaller ad agency in Birmingham, USA. This is especially true if your business works within an industry niche. Or, conversely, it may be better handled by the tried and tested, full service approach of a larger agency. In any case, when pitches are analysed next to each other, it is easier to understand their individual merits for your project.
Can I Manage More than One Agency?
With AgencyComparison.com’s tracking capabilities, you are able to manage all of your projects in the same place. This means that it is much easier to compare any and all developments across ongoing projects. Simply visit the ‘Projects’ area of your account and analyse each project’s progress reports side-by-side.
The ability to manage all projects within a single platform also saves the time that can be easily lost in communicating the progress of projects to various departments. By being able to have the same team member monitor projects across IT, Digital or Tech-related agencies, for example, the combined benefit of a range of projects can be more readily identified whilst time is saved that might usually be lost relaying information in meetings or across emails. This means that, not only can the management process become more coherent across projects, but there can also be a sizeable reduction in labour costs.
How are Agencies Sourced?
By allowing agencies and clients to register with AgencyComparison.com for free, we ensure that all agencies are able to have a platform. This means that, when searching for a ad agency in Birmingham, USA, you will be able to analyse a range of agencies beyond those that are already established. This accessibility also means that, just like comparison tools for other services, there is more competitiveness found in the quotes and pitches of suppliers. With less-experienced agencies being able to directly compete with more popular suppliers, you may discover a much better deal than anticipated.
While there are a broad range of options when searching through AgencyComparison.com, our smart comparison tool will only show you those that are likely to fit your needs. This is because each ad agency in Birmingham, USA that comes up in your search is selected intelligently. Utilising AI, machine learning and data science, we will only highlight those that are likely to fit with your project.
