Searching for a ad agency in Liverpool, UK that fits your needs is not always straightforward. Primarily using search engines, for example, can result in a series of mismatches, wasting time and money. AgencyComparison’s free and intuitive comparison tool has been developed to counter this issue, matching your business with the ad agency in Liverpool, 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 existed for a variety of services providing a host of benefits for supplier and client alike. 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 unsatisfied with a lack of progress.
It is because of this that 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 puts an emphasis on a well-matched client-agency relationship first and foremost. 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 Liverpool, UK that is not as visible when searching with typical agency sourcing methods. Here are just some of the areas that are benefited when using agency comparison:
Will There Be More Agencies Available to Me?
Perhaps one of the most significant benefits of our comparison tool is the range of agencies it makes available to you. 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. Every client has different needs and expectations. So, while the most well-known ad agency in Liverpool, UK may have a proven history of as an effective supplier for a considerable amount of people, that may not be the case for your business. With a broad variety of agencies to look through on AgencyComparison.com, you can properly compare and contrast them whilst considering your business’s unique requirements. 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. 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 upshot that results from using AgencyComparison’s unique tool is that you have much more control over your relationship with your selected ad agency in Liverpool, UK. From the tailored selection process that allows you to handpick the agencies that 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 making sure that both parties are comfortable sharing their unique methods and thoughts with one another, the relationship can be sure to have no early limitations. Once completed, we strongly recommend that the NDA is uploaded to our platform for each party’s peace of mind.
It may also may be that, for whatever reason, you are not satisfied with your project’s progress. Should this be the case, we promise to mediate the relationship or, if required, find a replacement supplier. By having us assist in this area, you will not need to worry about any of the drawn-out difficulties that may arise when trying to change supplier.
Will I have More Control by Comparing Agencies?
When searching for a ad agency in Liverpool, UK 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 considerably more insight into how each agency will approach your project and, resultantly, more control over the direction of the relationship.
By being able to analyse the individual approaches of agencies side-by-side before signing a contract with any, you can be more confident in your choice from the beginning. 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 Liverpool, 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 also gives agencies that may be effective but less easily discovered a chance to pitch for your project. It may be, for example, that your project will benefit from the specialist approach of a smaller ad agency in Liverpool, 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, when agencies are compared side-by-side, it is easier to determine who will add the most to your project.
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 makes it easier to identify strengths and weaknesses of projects by being able to compare their varying progress. Simply visit the ‘Projects’ area of your account and analyse the progress reports of your projects 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 business’s overall progress from a range of projects can be more easily determined whilst time is saved that might usually be spent relaying information over email or in meetings. 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 agencies and buyers of all sizes have a platform to tender services. This means that, when searching for a ad agency in Liverpool, UK, you will have a varied range of potential suppliers to choose from beyond the most established that you may have already encountered. This accessibility also means that, just like comparison tools for other services, suppliers have more competitive quotes and pitches. 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 innovative comparison tool will only display those that are likely to suit your requirements. This is because each ad agency in Liverpool, UK that comes up in your search is selected intelligently. Utilising AI, machine learning and data science, you will only discover those that are likely to be appropriate for your project.
How do I Begin Comparing Each ad agency in Liverpool, UK?

Budget is particularly important as this will have a direct influence over which agencies pitch to you. With this in mind, having an in-depth understanding of your project’s requirements will make the selection process much simpler. This can be guaranteed by being as concise as possible in your project’s goals. So, if you have a tender for your project already, this is worth uploading to your account.
