A survey that we run annually with Marketers establishes benchmarks on how their current agency is performing.

One of the questions asks them to rate how reliable their agency is in consistently doing an excellent job on a 10-point scale.

This goes beyond creative, media planning and buying; it includes the agency’s ability to discern business developments that will impact their client’s business months in the future.

With 10 being “excellent”, the aggregated rating across Marketers surveyed is 6.2.
