A collection of shortlists for industry awards from 2018
Prolific North Top 50 Digital Agencies
For many in the industry, Marketing – whether on or offline – is something that happens in the capital; yet year after year, agencies in the north have grown, consolidated and progressed, picking up numerous awards (with Click contributing more than its share), big clients and producing fantastic campaigns. The north has, by no means, been left behind by the – outperforming numerous London agencies and picking up a stellar list of clients.
For this reason, Click Consult is proud to sponsor this list – which looks at more than 150 northern agencies each and every year to calculate the top 50 – and to play a part in recognising the tremendous work that the north of England is doing in the digital sphere.
Click Consult is yet again in the top 15 agencies – and 5th in the list of those which are independently owned. While we’ve dropped a place this year, it is a pleasure to see Click remain steady in the face of stiff competition from agencies with global parent companies. With independent agencies proving themselves to be more agile and able to respond quickly to a client’s needs, we can only keep doing what we do best and know that success will follow.
In addition to 15th place overall, Click Consult is the 5th best placed independent agency and 3rd in the North West.
