It’s too easy to make all sorts of claims about how good your business is. It’s harder although so much more rewarding to be recommended by clients. And of course a recommendation can be the key decider when choosing a supplier, right from a plumber your neighbour has used through to a key supplier for your business.
That recommendation carries even more weight if it’s part of an independent recommendation programme in your industry. It could be argued that the marketing services industry needs more independent verification than most, as its practitioners are skilled at publicity and therefore at self-publicity.
We are therefore thrilled that our agency, Business Data Prospects, features in the top 100 agencies, as chosen by the Recommended Agency Register, RAR, www.recommendedagencies.com.
Instead of just believing what we say about our service, RAR asked a broad cross-section of our clients what they think about us across seven key criteria, everything from creativity and innovation through to whether we complete work on time and on budget.
This client feedback was overlaid with an assessment of our business, looking at aspects such as our resources and key staff, our sector experience, the state of our finances and our level of growth.
Marketing and media magazine The Drum, in conjunction with RAR, has published this top 100 list and you can see it here: www.thedrum.com/rar-top-100/2013. We are delighted to appear on this list as this is out of thousands of agencies across the UK… And we’re one of the top 10 fastest growing marketing agencies in the whole of the UK too.
So, have a look at this list and perhaps add it to your selection process when choosing an agency to work with. And maybe investigate what verification schemes exist in YOUR industry to allow people to benchmark your business against your competitors. It requires supreme confidence in the quality of your own business to subject yourself to this level of evaluation, but you’ve got that, haven’t you?
