New this January: Top 20 Digital Agencies Report

Agency Spotter’s Top 20 Digital Agencies quarterly report for January 2018 evaluates more than 4,500 digital agencies based on Agency Spotter’s proprietary research methodology. It covers a range of services, including digital strategy, marketing automation, web, mobile, e-commerce, social media, content marketing, email marketing, inbound marketing, CRM automation, search (SEO and SEM), and gaming.

The Portland-based firm Emerge Interactive was ranked number one this quarter, and can owe its win to an extensive list of projects for brands such as AXE, Mercedes-Benz, and Nike, for which Emerge Interactive turned an otherwise unpalatable CR manual into an interactive website that is both informative and fun to explore. Take a look at the creative feat and its many accolades here.

The agency’s CEO Jonathon Hensley and team pride themselves on Emerge Interactive’s ability to “help brands do things they’ve never done before,” using proprietary world-class expertise to “quickly solve user experience challenges and address untapped opportunities.” The impressive outcomes? Nimble digital products, services, smart websites, and mobile apps.
