Top 20 Marketing Agencies Report: June 2018

Marketing, they say, is an umbrella term. Does that make the agencies on our latest Top 20 Marketing Agencies Report the umbrella-best?

Agency Spotter just dropped the June 2018 Top Marketing Agencies Report, which features the top 20 marketing agencies across marketing strategy, SEO and SEM, experiential marketing, promotions, shopper marketing, influencer marketing, multicultural marketing, word of mouth marketing, events, direct marketing, and marketing automation.


Response Marketing made the number one spot on this report. The agency is based in New Haven, Connecticut and its work spans digital, social media, branding, packaging, motion/video, in-store marketing, and traditional advertising. Having placed third in Agency Spotter’s last Marketing Top Report, the agency jumped two spots and earned the win this time around with an eye-catching portfolio touting detailed case studies that showcase their work for McAfee, DEWALT, GUESS Watches, and more. Response Marketing also partners with Citrix, Amazon, Logitech, Office Depot and other companies of varying sizes.

Clients of Response Marketing say the agency is ahead of the marketing curve. The Senior Director of Consumer Marketing at McAfee says she is impressed with Response Marketing’s ability to keep their clients on trend. Another valuable trait customers cite as one of Response Marketing’s strengths is finding right-fit teams that mesh well with the people they will be working with.

Here are the top ten agencies on the list:
