Looking for a email marketing agency in Manchester, UK 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 money. AgencyComparison’s free and intuitive comparison tool has been developed to counter this issue, matching your business with the email marketing agency in Manchester, 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.
Through our competitive and fair platform, you may find an exciting email marketing agency in Manchester, UK that is not as present when utilising 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 options to choose from, the likelihood of finding one that suits your requirements increases dramatically.
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 email marketing agency in Manchester, 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 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. 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 much more control over your relationship with your selected email marketing agency in Manchester, 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 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 is done so that your relationship is protected from the beginning. By making sure that both parties are comfortable sharing their thoughts and unique approaches with one another, the relationship can be sure to have no early limitations. 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.
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 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 email marketing agency in Manchester, 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 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 complex terminology and marketing jargon that it is easy to encounter when researching a email marketing agency in Manchester, 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 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 email marketing agency in Manchester, 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 means that progress can be effectively tracked and compared across ongoing projects, highlighting their individual strengths and weaknesses. 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 coherent across projects, but there can also be a noticeable reduction in labour costs.

Explore and Shortlist your Favourite Agencies

Create a project
Before you can request quotes from your shortlisted suppliers, however, you must create a project. To do this, click ‘Projects’ at the top right of the home screen whilst signed in.

Select from pitches
To look through your proposals, simply visit your account’s ‘Projects’ area and then click on ‘Pending Proposals’ from the menu along the left. When you are on this page you will be able to see all of your pitches and accept or reject them whenever you please.

Invite existing contacts
Should you already have a few agencies shortlisted but would like to compare another one that you have found that does not have an account with us, you can send them an invite to create an account on AgencyComparison.com.

This is also useful as, should you prefer an agency’s pitch that does not have an account with us, your relationship with them will be protected once they sign up and complete the contract on our platform.
