The Definitive Marketing Agency Selection Guide
As mentioned previously, the Amalgamated Marketing Network is a network of highly specialized agencies that allows these agencies to promote and succeed. In this, they have recently announced and released a guide to selecting a marketing agency.
Unbiased and informative, this new guide teaches companies searching for marketing agencies the following 4-Step process:
- Planning the Agency Search: How to develop an Agency RFP, decide on a budget, and devise selection criteria.
- How to Identify Agencies: Depending on your needs, your scope of agencies to select can vary. Different agencies are better at different things. Learn who best suits your needs and fits your budget.
- Vetting Agency Candidates: How do you develop a long list? A short list? What questions do you ask?
- Making the Final Agency Decision: After developing a short list, how do you make your final decision?
Much more is available in this guide, including different types of marketing agencies and how to follow the previously mentioned four steps. The Construction Marketing Association supports the Amalgamated Network.
