5 Top Digital Marketing Agencies (and the brands they serve)
Great digital marketing agencies are highly sought after by brands with an online presence, big and small. With so many of these agencies out there today, how could you possibly name the best of the best? Well, the following five companies definitely make a mark in our industry.
Based out of places like London, New York, Chicago, Kansas City, and even Sydney, Australia, these digital marketing agencies have struck gold. For different reasons, each of these big-name businesses has proven to be a top-dog marketing agency in the digital world, and here’s why:
360i is a self-proclaimed “interactive digital agency specializing in search engine marketing, social media, mobile marketing and web design and development.” With a list of clients that includes Oreo, J. Crew, and Coca-Cola, 360i is doing well in our books. Last year, 360i was named one of the “World’s Most Innovative Companies” by Fast Company, and one of the “Best Places to Work in Media and Marketing” by Advertising Age for the past two years – not too shabby.
One successful digital endeavor was creating the 100th birthday website for Oreo. This included the “Oreo Moments” campaign, where fans shared videos of their favorite Oreo “moments” on the website. Consumer engagement is key!
VML is a worldwide agency focused on bringing innovative thinkers together to develop successful, holistic digital marketing programs. VML’s client list includes Gatorade, Microsoft, and Dell, among other impressive name brands. They recently received various awards at Cannes including four Gold Lions, a rather prestigious accomplishment. VML was also selected as a 2012 Ad Age A-List Standout Shop. Props to them!
One of their most valued clients is Gatorade. VML revamped the company’s website and took it to the next level through implementing eye-popping visual displays to create a one-of-a-kind experience for the website’s visitors. According to their leaders, VML “encourages a balance of good times and excellent work” – an agency after our own heart.
The first thing we noticed about Razorfish was their sleek, alluring website design. Their big-name clients include AT&T, Audi, and Sony – another plus. Razorfish has won hundreds of awards for their digital efforts, but what is featured foremost on their own website is the site they designed for Mercedes-AMG. And it’s a good one. A visually stimulating design is what sets it apart from other car manufacturer websites. In a more highly visually-focused digital world, Razorfish wins.
With over forty Fortune 500 clients, iCrossing is one of the most successful global digital marketing agencies. Their client list includes Porsche, eBay, and Mastercard. In 2011, iCrossing received top honors in Forrester’s Search Agency Wave Report Q1. As described on iCrossing’s website, the report noted “Any marketer will find this agency a sure bet.”
iCrossing built AutoTraderClassics.com, wherein classic car enthusiasts can buy and sell cars online. They also encouraged engagement through the website, which has helped AutoTraderClassics rise to the top of their market. Well done, iCrossing.
Huge Inc. has some huge clients – HBO, Target, and Nintendo. Aside from the sheer size of their portfolio, Huge was also named a 2012 Top 10 agency on Ad Age’s Agency A-List. It was selected as the Most Innovative Agency of the year by Digiday Awards, and OMMA Magazine recognized Huge as the industry’s top social agency at the 2011 OMMA Awards. Impressive, right?
Huge Inc. is the company that brought HBO to all mobile devices, including Xbox. With the HBO GO app, HBO subscribers are able to view all their favorite series on the go. As one of its most impressive endeavors, HBO GO shows how Huge is leading the scene of mobile technology.
Our hats are off to you big digital marketing agencies for paving some great streets for big consumer brands!
