How do ad agencies usually get paid?

Ad agencies commonly use these pricing models: 

  • Fixed-rate pricing: This sets an upfront fee for specific services, making it transparent and easy to understand for clients 
  • Hourly rates: This is a flat fee for each hour worked on the project 
  • Value-based pricing: In this structure, the agency determines the pricing after completing the project. The cost is based on the success and value of the final deliverables 
  • Project-based: The agency charges a fixed price for the entire project. Both parties agree on the terms and conditions, including the scope, timeline, and services, beforehand 
  • Commission-based: The agency takes a percentage of the client's media spend, usually around 15%. For example, if a client spends $20,000 on advertising, the agency receives $3,000 as payment. 
  • Retainer-based: The client pays a fixed fee at regular intervals to retain the agency's services. For example, if an agency charges $1,000 per month for social media management, the client pays this amount on an ongoing basis. 
  • Owned media: Ad agencies can sell or retain the rights to media they create for clients, generating additional income.

What is the difference between a creative agency and an advertising agency?

The difference between a creative agency and an advertising agency lies in the scope of services, strategies, goals, the workforce’s expertise, and the organizational structure. 

A creative agency has teams of designers, writers, and other creative professionals. These experts combine design and branding strategies with marketing. They collaborate to craft engaging and memorable concepts, designs, and content that establish a connection with consumers and help businesses reach their marketing goals. 

Creative agencies are mainly responsible for: 

  • Brainstorming content and branding strategies 
  • Copywriting and editing 
  • Designing visual content 
  • Producing marketing collaterals 

Meanwhile, an advertising agency plans and executes advertising and marketing campaigns to distribute information about a brand's products or services on TV, radio, print, and online. It has specialized teams for account management, media planning and buying, and more. 

With the primary objectives of promoting to intended audiences, generating sales, and increasing ROI, advertising agencies focus on: 

  • Finding new demographics to target 
  • Exploring new methods to reduce ad expenses 
  • Optimizing content for search engines 
  • Ensuring a consistent brand identity and presence on different digital media 

That said, these specialties aren’t necessarily independent of each other. Ad agencies employ creatives, and some companies offer both creative and advertising services.

Are marketing and advertising agencies the same?

No, marketing and advertising agencies are not the same. However, some marketing agencies may offer advertising services and vice versa.  

Marketing agencies focus on creating campaigns and collaborating with clients throughout the campaign's duration. Their goal is to communicate a brand and demonstrate its value to attract paying customers. 

A marketing agency houses these experts: 

  • Content strategists 
  • UI/UX designers 
  • Graphic designers 
  • Web developers and designers 
  • Videographers and photographers 
  • Video and motion graphic editors 
  • Affiliate and PPC specialists 
  • Email and influencer marketing specialists 

On the other hand, advertising agencies primarily handle the paid aspects of campaigns by utilizing partnerships with offline and online channels. They formulate strategies and execute promotions for your products, services, business, or brand on different channels, both online and offline 

An advertising agency typically comprises the following professionals: 

  • Business development manager 
  • Advertising manager 
  • Media coordinator 
  • Media planner 
  • Media buyer 
  • Brand planner and strategist 
  • Research analyst

How do I choose an advertising agency for my business?

Take these steps to select the ideal advertising agency for your company: 

  1. Plan and align your short and long-term business goals with your ad campaign ideas. Identify if they're for increasing brand awareness, promoting on social channels, or aiming to boost sales, so you'll know the services you need. 
  2. Decide on the agency size you'd go for and allocate a budget. Weigh the pros and cons of hiring a large agency with impressive offers and complex processes, as well as those of a smaller specialized agency that can provide boutique experience and quicker responsiveness. See if it handles all advertising services or specialty solutions, like branding, affiliate, social, lead generation, or television, among others. Does it cater to your specific advertising needs? 
  3. Identify and create a list of potential service providers with a successful track record of driving conversions. 
  4. See if they have served brands in your business category, with similar challenges and comparable goals. 
  5. Investigate their areas of focus, the strategies they prefer to use, and how they measure a campaign's effectiveness.  
  6. Consider in which media, analytics, communication channels, reporting tools, and technologies they specialize. 
  7. Check their membership with professional associations, such as the International Advertising Association (IAA), American Advertising Federation (AAF), etc. 
  8. Examine previous advertising campaigns and learn how successful they were.  
  9. Look at their past and existing clientele and the industries they're in.  
  10. Go through the advertising services they offer that can benefit your brand. 
  11. Check reviews, references, and testimonials for credibility, management skills, and realistic promises. 
  12. Send a project brief that includes your goals, budget, timeline, etc. to the agencies that interest you. This helps you get better proposals and the best agency match. 
  13. Ask for a price estimate with a breakdown to assess if you can afford their services. Also, inquire if they accept payment based on performance and results. 
  14. Based on your findings, create a shortlist of up to five agencies and invite them for an interview.  
  15. Inquire about their advertising strategies and how they plan to personalize and adapt them to your brand. 
  16. Investigate their familiarity with your specific audience types: their needs, pain points, and demographics. It will help you understand the extent of their knowledge in reaching your target market. 
  17. Get to know exactly who will be working with your brand and what they bring to the table. Request the potential team members’ names, previous experience and campaigns, and areas of expertise.  
  18. Observe the company culture and how its employees communicate. Do they look like they are inspired, hardworking, and enjoying their time at the agency? If they align with your business’s values and communication style, chances are you’ll be able to build a positive working relationship.
