Finding a ad agency in Glasgow, UK that fits your requirements is not always straightforward. Relying solely on word of mouth or search engines can mean a series of false starts, wasting time and effort in the process. AgencyComparison’s free and intelligent comparison tool has been developed to counter this problem, matching your business with the ad agency in Glasgow, UK that it gels with 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 came to realise that, despite appearing like the best choice, a client’s unique requirements frequently could not always be catered for by their chosen agency, with one or both parties often becoming disappointed by a lack of results.
It is for this reason that we developed our smart comparison platform. Unlike comparison tools for energy or insurance providers that focus on finding 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.
Through our competitive and fair platform, you may find an exciting ad agency in Glasgow, UK that is not as established when using typical agency sourcing methods. Here are a range of areas that are benefited when using agency comparison:
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 a variety of agencies to choose from, the likelihood of finding one that best meets your needs increases significantly.
With larger agencies tending to have the most effective presence online, it is easy to assume that they will therefore have the biggest impact on your 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 Glasgow, UK has proven itself to be effective for a number of clients, this does not necessarily mean it will be 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 provides a more balanced overview of your options. When placed side-by-side, you can quickly determine which agencies do and don’t work. By having agencies explain how they will approach your project, you can save time that might otherwise have been lost researching each agency or talking to them.
How does AgencyComparison Guarantee Effective Matching?
Another advantage that results from using AgencyComparison’s unique tool is that you have much more control over your relationship with your selected ad agency in Glasgow, UK. From the tailored selection process that means you are able to choose the agencies that will most directly offer the most to your project, to relationship maintenance, we ensure that clients will be satisfied with their supplier.
When an agency has been chosen for your project, you and your supplier will both receive a mutual NDA template. This ensures that your relationship is protected from the beginning. By guaranteeing that both parties are comfortable sharing their unique methods and thoughts with one another, the relationship can get off to as strong as start as is possible. 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.
If, for whatever reason, you are unsatisfied with the progress an agency has made on your project, this is not an issue either. 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 Glasgow, UK through more typical routes, such as search engines or word of mouth, it is easy to commit to an agency without being told exactly what they will do for your project. When using AgencyComparison.com, you have significantly more insight into what each agency will do for your project and, therefore, more control over the relationship.
With the ability to compare and contrast agencies through AgencyComparison.com without having to make a contractual commitment, you can greatly reduce the likelihood of a mismatch. 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 complex terminology and marketing jargon that it is easy to encounter when researching a ad agency in Glasgow, UK, it can be difficult to determine which best fits your project. When using AgencyComparison, your project comes first. By outlining your project in detail, any pitches you receive from your shortlisted agencies will address its requirements directly. This makes the selection process significantly easier. When an agency pitch makes clear how it will address the individual stages of your project, their merits are much more clear.
Project-specificity in the selection process is also a useful way to discover less-established agencies that may best benefit your project despite not having much of a track record. It may be, for example, that your project will will grow much more quickly from the specialist approach of a smaller ad agency in Glasgow, UK. This is especially true if your business works within an industry niche. Or, conversely, it may be better handled by the more routine full service of a larger agency. In any case, by comparing these pitches side-by-side, you will be able to determine who will benefit your project best and be easiest to work with.
Can I Manage More than One Agency?
With the tracking capabilities of AgencyComparison.com, it is also possible to manage all your projects in one 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 provides the added advantage of less communication needed internally across teams or 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 dependable 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 Glasgow, UK, you will encounter a more varied range of suppliers beyond those that are more 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 find that you receive 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 Glasgow, UK 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.
