Looking for a affiliate marketing agency in Birmingham, UK that suits your requirements is not always simple. Relying solely on word of mouth or search engines can mean a series of false starts, wasting time and resources. AgencyComparison’s free and innovative comparison tool has been created to meet this issue, matching your business with the affiliate marketing agency in Birmingham, UK 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 understand that the requirements of a client and an agency’s abilities did not always line up successfully, with one or both parties often becoming unsatisfied over time without growth.
That is why we developed our smart comparison platform. Unlike comparison tools for energy or insurance providers that look solely for 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 providing a competitive and fair platform, you may unearth an exciting affiliate marketing agency in Birmingham, UK that is not as present 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 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 requirements often vary significantly. So, while the most well-known affiliate marketing agency in Birmingham, UK 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 provides a more balanced overview of your options. 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 pitch to you how they work with your project, time can be saved that might otherwise have been wasted researching them yourself or talking with each of 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 affiliate marketing agency in Birmingham, 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 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 guaranteeing that both parties are comfortable sharing their thoughts and unique approaches with one another, the relationship can be sure to not have any early hindrances. Once you and your chosen supplier have signed the NDA, we strongly recommend that this is then uploaded onto the platform for each of you to see.
It may also be that, for whatever reason, you are unhappy with an agency’s progress for your project. Should this be the case, we promise to mediate the relationship or, if required, find a replacement supplier. By having us mediate or switch over the contract, you do not need to worry about it being a drawn out process.
Will I have More Control by Comparing Agencies?
When searching for a affiliate marketing agency in Birmingham, 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.
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 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 complex terminology and marketing jargon that it is easy to encounter when researching a affiliate marketing agency in Birmingham, UK, 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 affiliate marketing agency in Birmingham, UK. This is especially true if your business works within an industry niche. Or, conversely, it may be better handled by the more straightforward 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?
AgencyComparison.com’s tracking capabilities allows users to manage a range of projects in the same 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 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 consistent across projects, but there can also be a significant reduction in labour costs.
How are Agencies Sourced?
By allowing agencies and clients to register with AgencyComparison.com for free, we ensure that everyone has an equal platform to tender services on.

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.

This is because each affiliate marketing agency in Birmingham, UK that comes up in your search is selected intelligently.
