“New Breed” Digital Agencies
The only thing these marketing agencies have in common is that they do things differently. It may be their approach, their world view, their way of doing business or just the combination of intangibles that makes them so uniquely who they are. They are not going to be right for everyone, and they are likely to put as much energy into determining whether you are the right fit for them as you would expect them to put into trying to prove that they are the right fit for you.
Independent, and proud of it
These agencies are staunchly independent and very proud not to be beholden to the oversight of large holding agency holding companies.
Small(er) with a fresh new approach
These ’boutique shops’ have specialized core competencies and more often they will tailor their offer to a particular industry or sector. Despite their small size, they can pack a strong punch. You’ll likely find that all of their talent is their top talent, so you’re working with key personnel every step along the way.
