Searching for a ad agency in Ottawa, Canada that fits your needs is not always straightforward. Relying solely on word of mouth or search engines can mean a series of false starts, wasting time and resources. AgencyComparison’s free and intuitive comparison tool has been developed to counter this issue, matching your business with the ad agency in Ottawa, Canada that it fits 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 created a level and competitive playing field for a range of services, with resulting benefits for 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 unsatisfied over time without growth.
It is for this reason that we developed our innovative comparison platform. Unlike comparison tools for energy or insurance providers that focus on finding the cheapest deal available, our comparison tool works to match clients and agencies that are best suited to one another. 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 discover an exciting ad agency in Ottawa, Canada that is not as established when using 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?
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 larger, more established, agencies being by far the most talked about or visible, it is easy to assume that they will automatically be the most capable. This, however, is not always the case. The needs and expectations of clients vary widely. So, while the most well-known ad agency in Ottawa, Canada 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 wide range of agencies to choose from on AgencyComparison.com, your business can effectively compare and contrast them with your business’s unique demands 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. When analysing agencies side-by-side, it is much easier to determine which work best with your project and rule out those that don’t. This means that less time is wasted researching various agencies or in discussion with them.
How does AgencyComparison Guarantee Effective Matching?
Another upshot that results from using AgencyComparison’s unique tool is that you have a significant amount of control over your relationship with your selected ad agency in Ottawa, Canada. 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 promise that clients will be satisfied with their supplier.
Once you have chosen an agency for your project, both you and your supplier will 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 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 happen, 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 Ottawa, Canada 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 much more insight into what an 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 hand-picked 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 Ottawa, Canada, 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 a pitch discusses every stage of you’re your project will be handled, it is much easier to identify which agencies are likely to produce the best results.
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 Ottawa, Canada. 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, not only can the management process become more dependable across projects, but there can also be a sizeable reduction in labour costs.
