Searching for a pay-per-click advertising (PPC) agency in Edinburgh, 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 effort in the process. AgencyComparison’s free and innovative comparison tool has been created to meet this issue, matching your business with the pay-per-click advertising (PPC) agency in Edinburgh, 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 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 disappointed by a lack of results.
It is because of this 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.
By providing a competitive and fair platform, you may discover an exciting pay-per-click advertising (PPC) agency in Edinburgh, UK that is not as visible when utilising 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?
Perhaps one of the more obvious benefits of using our agency comparison tool is the breadth of agencies that are available to you by doing so. By simply having a variety of agencies to choose from, the likelihood of finding one that best meets your needs 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 pay-per-click advertising (PPC) agency in Edinburgh, UK has proven itself to be effective for a number of clients, this does not necessarily mean it will be 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 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 advantage that results from using AgencyComparison’s unique tool is that you have much more control over your relationship with your selected pay-per-click advertising (PPC) agency in Edinburgh, UK. From the tailored selection process that allows you to choose the agencies that you believe will have the best effect on 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 there to guarantee that your relationship is protected from the offset. By guaranteeing that both parties are comfortable sharing their unique ideas and methods with each other, 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.
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 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 pay-per-click advertising (PPC) agency in Edinburgh, 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 very best reviews 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 pay-per-click advertising (PPC) agency in Edinburgh, UK, it can be a challenge to determine which is best suited to 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 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 benefit from the specialist approach of a smaller pay-per-click advertising (PPC) agency in Edinburgh, 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, 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 the progress reports of your projects 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 significant 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 pay-per-click advertising (PPC) agency in Edinburgh, 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, 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 comparison tool will only display those that are most likely to fit your requirements. This is because each pay-per-click advertising (PPC) agency in Edinburgh, UK that comes up in your search is selected intelligently. Utilising AI, machine learning and data science, you can be sure that your search will only show appropriate agencies.
How do I Begin Comparing Each pay-per-click advertising (PPC) agency in Edinburgh, UK?
Prior to beginning your agency comparison, it is worth considering your budget and the service that you require. Your budget is of particular importance as this will have an influence over which agencies pitch for your project. With this in mind, having a clear understanding of what it is that you require from a supplier will also help when it comes to making a selection. This can be ensured by being as concise as possible in your project’s objectives. So, if you have a tender for your project already, this is worth uploading to your account.

Similarly, it can be useful way to rediscover a pay-per-click advertising (PPC) agency in Edinburgh, UK that you had previously liked but forgot to shortlist. Simply sort results alphabetically if you can remember the name of the supplier or search by keyword.
Explore and Shortlist your Favourite Agencies
To begin the next stage of your agency comparison, go through the profiles that interest you most. An agency’s rating, work history, feedback, and certificates are all worth consideration at this stage.

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. From this, you will arrive on a page like the one above. From this page, click ‘Submit New Project’ from the menu bar along the left side of the screen.

- Minimum and maximum budget
- The project’s specific service requirements
- A proposed start date
- Details about your project – this can be in the box provided or, should you already have a tender, this can be attached as a document.
After inputting this information, click ‘Submit’. This will then send an alert to your shortlisted agencies about your project. With pitches sometimes taking a short while to prepare, it is recommended that you have your account’s email alerts enabled to see them as they arrive. Accounts will receive email alerts by default, so this will only require changing if you disabled email alerts when creating your account.
Select from pitches
To begin looking through your proposals, simply visit your account’s ‘Projects’ area and then click on ‘Pending Proposals’ from the menu along the left. On this page you will be able to see any pitches that you have received for a project and can accept or reject them as you please.

Whilst there are a number of lead gen platforms and directories that serve as platforms for agencies, AgencyComparison.com is the first and only website that allows clients to properly compare potential suppliers. As a platform that allows suppliers to create accounts for free, there are some agencies that consider AgencyComparison.com as a lead source. This does not mean, however, that it is a lead gen platform. This is because, unlike lead gen platforms that sell leads to as many businesses as possible without considering their capabilities, our platform is there to assist in the effective sourcing and managing of agency contracts.
Our platform has been conceived with the protection and development of the client-agency relationship at its core. It is by ensuring that all of the crucial elements of a project are found within our platform that any developments, good or bad, can be identified. This guarantees that everything can be easily found when required and reduce the risk of any confusion.
Aside from the comparison and progress-tracking capabilities of our platform, it has also been created with user interface in mind. One clear way this has been implemented is by the clear division between the sourcing of agencies in the ‘Shortlists’ area of the platform and those that have been shortlisted already in the ‘Projects’ area. This means that your search for a pay-per-click advertising (PPC) agency in Edinburgh, UK, for example, can be carried out in a separate portion of the platform away from any ongoing projects you may already be involved with.
