How leading creative agencies collaborate

It’s the end of the year and time for reflection.  And for once, I’d like to talk about how Creative Agency Secrets works alongside other agencies to deliver high quality marketing services to our clients.

Specialist agencies serve clients well

Few firms can now offer a ‘full service’ to clients.  Creative Agency Secrets are specialists in B2B marketing but we only offer part of the suite of services which clients need.

As a result, we collaborate with other agencies.  These may already be in a business relationship with our client or we may recruit them via our Sub-Contracted Services practice.

We believe that this serves our clients well.  By finding agencies who have specialist skills the clients can get access to experts for their full marketing needs.

Case Study of positive creative agency collaboration

AdWords – Search Engine Advertising we discussed how to optimise the client’s advertising account and were able to cross-match the search queries out of AdWords and from Analytics which enabled us to discover several search phrases which were only on one platform and could be profitably used to drive results in the other.

Graphic Design Services – a range of collateral was specified by Creative Agency Secrets and the design agency responded to the brief with the client.  As a result of discussions, the client ended up finding a better solution to their business cards and brochure and together we created a much better design outcome.

This form of collaboration is only good for the client. It allows us to stand head and shoulders above our competitors and demonstrate strong value and high quality advice to our clients.

thank you,

And so thank you to our clients for trusting Creative Agency Secrets and to our collaboration agencies who choose to work with us in this way.
We appreciate you both.

Quality Website Developers

Website Rescue Brief

The  client has a part-built WordPress website which needs a strong design improvement.

Quality Website Developers

Quality Website Developers

We need a team to take over the current design and create a robust wireframe and template design that fits with their corporate logotype.  We want the end result to be clear and simple for the reader.  

Start from scratch or re-work

You can choose to use the part-built site or for you to start from scratch. The Uber Menu plugin is already purchased.

The home page needs to be easy to navigate and to find the three separate locations (Auckland, Hamilton, Tauranga).  Each site has slightly different services and unique location information.

The client is in the transportation industry.  There are two separate “personas” who will use the site – the manager in the office and the driver out on the road.  Hence, a responsive site for the road-based user is essential. The needs of these two groups of people are different and the site needs to reflect this.  

  • The driver on the road will be using a mobile browser and needs to quickly access the location address and phone number so they can check the webcam and click the phone number to ring in.
  • The manager will probably be on a desktop computer, will have more time for browsing and will be more interested in the pricing, services offered and will want to email us.

Website Content

We have ready all written content, photos, logo, illustrations.  These can be supplied on day one.  There is a web feed from a webcam (still images refreshed every 1 second) which needs to feed onto two of the pages.  We will supply the embed code.

To find out more email Rebecca and we’ll send you a detailed brief.
