What Does The Agency Of The Future Look Like To You?

Sapient, a business consulting and interactive services firm, recently released the results of a US-wide survey that asked corporate Chief Marketing Officers what they wanted from their advertising and marketing agencies over the next year.

Here are the top ten results:

  1. Greater knowledge of the digital space.
  2. More use of "pull interactions."
  3. Leverage virtual communities.
  4. Agency executives using the technology they are recommending.
  5. Chief Digital Officers make agencies more appealing.
  6. Web 2.0 and social media savvy.
  7. Agencies that understand consumer behaviour.
  8. Demonstrate strategic thinking.
  9. Branding and creative capabilities.
  10. Ability to measure success.
