New March 2018: Top 20 Content Marketing Agencies

We just drafted the Top 20 Content Marketing Agencies Report for March 2018, and it showcases the 20 best content marketing agencies out of the 330+ listed on Agency Spotter.


Brass Ideas Advertising earned the #1 spot on the list this month. Based in San Francisco, the agency specializes in electronics, consumer goods, financial services, and telecommunications marketing.

One of Brass Ideas’ most notable achievements is their Bill Lumbergh campaign for Atlassian HipChat, which went viral with 12 million YouTube shares in 90 days and over 100,000+ clicks despite a small media budget.

According to Atlassian’s Head of Brand & Advertising, Brass Ideas swooped in, “ninja-like,” and “delivered results in less time and for less money” than the big-name agency the company had recently stopped working with.​

Brass Ideas has worked with Microsoft, Intel, Google, Twitter, Taylor Made Golf, PUMA,, SmartRecruiters, and Galvanize among others.

PACE Communications out of North Carolina and with offices across the U.S. came in close second. PACE is well-known in the content marketing space, and they have helped some of the world’s top brands including the Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts, Gold’s Gym, Rackspace, Verizon Wireless, Southwest Airlines, New York Presbyterian, The Auto Club Group (AAA), and Walmart achieve their marketing goals.
