Dec, 2015

Welcome to the latest Agency Wire, where we follow major trends in the communications and marketing industry.
Can You Describe Your Agency in 140 Characters?

We recently spotted this fun holiday initiative by Digiday to ‘describe your agency in 140 characters or less’ 

While many of the big names got involved, it reminded us of some of our recent pitches and reviews, and the importance of standing out and making an impact.

We usually say that sometimes it feels like 80% of agencies have the same point of difference – they are "uniquely 360 degrees, brand building, media neutral, ideas driven, holistic ideas shops." The challenge comes – when everyone is saying the same thing – what can you say to stand out? In 2016, the challenge is going to be how to be truly relevant to a few people, not generic to all people.

We wish you the best of the holiday season and a strong future.
