Market Overview

If you're curious about how we collected our data, check out our methodology.

Agency location

Out of the 43 agencies analyzed, the vast majority are based in either Europe or North America. 22 of the agencies are based in Europe (Poland, the UK, Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Germany, and Finland). Additionally, 16 agencies are from North America (USA and Canada). Furthermore, there are 2 agencies located in Asia (India and Taiwan), 1 in Africa (Nigeria), 1 in South America (Brazil), and 1 in Australia.

On average, the European agencies were smaller compared to the US agencies, with a median team size of 16 as opposed to 40. Moreover, the European agencies had lower minimum project sizes ($5,000 vs 10,000) and lower hourly rates ($100-149 vs $150-199). 

One notable distinction is that European agencies seem to be more focused on serving small business (median: 75% vs 25%), while the US agencies tend to target the mid-market segment more (median: 45% vs 30%).

How To Pick The Best Growth Marketing Agency?

Is it time to make your choice? Here are 7 tips to help you find the perfect agency for your business:

  1. Define Your Growth Goals. Have a moment to assess where your company currently stands, what it lacks, and what stage of development you're in. Every business has unique needs at different stages, and not every agency can cater to them all. That's perfectly fine because specialization is key. So if you run a small business, begin by partnering with an agency that specializes in serving this specific segment. Additionally, check whether the agency possesses expertise in your industry and has undertaken projects in the market where your clients are located. Based on our experience, the better we comprehend the client and their industry, the more successful our results will be.
  1. Use Our Research. Searching for agencies on your own can be exhausting, so we've done the legwork for you. We've thoroughly researched our competition, allowing us to better understand their strengths and weaknesses. While they may know about us too, what truly matters is finding the right match between client and agency, and our findings benefit all our clients.
  1. Compare Your Options and Pricing. Don't solely rely on the lowest prices, but also avoid blowing your budget. The most expensive option isn't always the most effective one. Especially in the early stages of your business, where every dollar counts, finding a well-matched business partner is crucial.
  1. Check The Agency's Reviews and Case Studies. Case studies that mention specific clients are the most helpful (they demonstrate credibility and transparency). Look for reviews of the agency on reputable platforms. For us, Clutch and LinkedIn serve as important indicators, and we base our industry analysis on them.
  1. Check if Their Communication Style Suits You. Transparent communication without jargon or beating around the bush is crucial. Consider how responsive they are and what communication channels they use. How quickly did you receive a response? Do you feel positive vibes from the very beginning?
  1. Go with What Fits Best, Not Just Any Vendor. Don't make decisions solely based on what others choose, as not every agency will align with your preferred style. Don't fixate on specific services – let the agency propose solutions instead. A good agency can recommend services and subcontractors who can assist you, saving you the trouble of searching independently.
  1. Trust Your Instincts. Ultimately, go with your gut feeling and choose the agency that feels like the best fit for your business. Don't worry about what others are doing; focus on what works for you. Good luck!
