2008: Recommended! 2009: Recommended! 2010: Recommended! Back of the net!
Yep, we’re already missing the World Cup and we’re still dumbfounded at England’s rise in FIFA rankings despite some of the most ineffectual performances ever managed by 11 men in England shirts. So, finding out that we’ve been Recommended by our clients for the third year running is definitely cause for a celebration and a suitable dance around the corner flag.
We’ve started so we’ll continue with our football analogy. There are tens of thousands of design and marketing agencies in the UK from Sunday league hackers right up to the Premiership big boys.
To help marketers know which agency is best suited to their requirements there’s an independent organisation called the Recommended Agency Register (RAR) that undertakes extensive insight into the skills and abilities of these design and marketing agencies. Agencies have to be endorsed by their current clients across key skills including client service, creativity, effectiveness, strategic thinking and value for money to gain Recommended status.
This year we’re proud to be recommended for Brand Strategy, Design, Digital, Print production and TV/Video production and prouder still that we have a perfect advocacy rating. In other words, how highly our clients would recommend Engine Creative to other organisations.
Here’s some comments made by our clients in the research process. This is our Manchester United moment:
“Impossible not to score Engine Creative highly in all these areas. They are a pleasure to deal with and the results are always of the highest standard.”
And our Roy Hodgson moment:
“Engine operate on the cutting edge and are a particularly innovative and contemporary agency. They are also excellent value for money.”
Oh, and here is Paula’s Harry Redknapp moment:
“…for fantastic account management and meeting and exceeding client expectations.”
We’re not sure which client said what as it’s all confidential but we are very grateful to all of our client partners for helping us to retain our position in the Premiership of creative agencies. Now I’m sure there’s a line about continuing our winning ways this season to round up the blog post…
