New this January: Top 20 Marketing Agencies Report

​​​​Agency Spotter’s has just released our January 2018 Top Marketing Agencies Report. The report features 20 marketing agencies specializing in marketing strategy, public relations, experiential marketing, promotions, shopper marketing, influencer marketing, multicultural marketing, word of mouth marketing, events, direct marketing, and marketing automation. Ranking is based on agency credentials, level of marketing expertise, verified client feedback, and project work.

NEXT/NOW, an experiential marketing agency from Chicago, remains, since last October, the #1 agency. They have done work with companies such as LG, McDonald’s, Under Armour and many more.

Clients of NEXT/NOW say the agency “operates under reasonable deadlines and budgets, and delivers on expectations,” specifically on AR VR, or Augmented and Virtual Reality, projects. Because AR VR is a growing marketing trend, it can be said NEXT/NOW specializes on the cutting edge.

Here are the rest of the top ten:
