The core team of Sortlist was previously active as a Digital Agency with mid-sized clients from Retail and Pharma industry. At that time, we discovered how difficult it was to get to know companies that could be in need of our services. Commercial prospecting wasn't the main focus although we knew there were thousands of amazing companies nearby that we could grandly help. We told ourselves what a pity that agencies and their clients don't meet around the relevancy of their match. It resulted in misunderstandings within the relationships and a loss of performance. That's why we started building Sortlist that now focuses on relevancy and helps companies like yours to meet marketing agencies that really can deliver what's expected.
As a company you definitely need to promote your products and build a strong brand. Marketing's spectrum of expertises is now wider than ever including digital ones and you need specialized partners to craft an engaging experience for your customers. But you want to hire the best teams of creative talents, not the ones that are most visible on Google or that best know you friends. After posting a project for free on Sortlist, a dedicated expert will ask you the right question and will select agencies that are definitly relevant for you. Maximum 5 of these agencies will be able to enter in contact with you. It will save you hours of research and it will save you from the risk of making the wrong choice.
Mid-size companies (~10M€ turnover, ~100 employees) are usually looking for creative boutiques that are able to handle a wide range of expertises to take care of their brand. International brands are looking for very specialized agencies to help on projects that require an in-depth expertise or for bigger agencies that could manage their annual strategic advertising budget. We're also used to work with NGOs looking for rising teams to assist them on very creative campaigns. We don't usually work with small businesses and self-employed as they're not typical clients of our agencies. They better work with freelancers or choose the do-it-yourself as cost-effective solution. The clients using Sortlist have different profiles but one thing in common: they have a real budgeted marketing project.
We love marketing agencies, no matter their size or expertise. Depending on their whishes, we match our clients with small creative studios or big advertising networks. The number of team members of our agencies ranges from 5 to 5000. Some are independent, other are part of groups. Some are specialized, other are full-service. Some think, other produce. We don't match with freelancers as we believe our clients are looking for teams having a collective experience and an historic continuity. We love top-level expertise, team spirit, unbridled creativity and marketing genius.
Well, it's totally free for companies. Agencies are supporting the costs of our services.
All you need to start a project is... to really have a project! Our expert can help you to name your precise need and to define the right budget that makes sense. We make a lot of efforts to satisfy our companies and we love when it's taken seriously ;-)! Anyway, posting a project is quick and simple. We'll just ask you 'what', 'where', 'how much' and 'who'. Our expert takes over from there and starts building your experience.
There is a wide range of budgets depending on the project, the company, the expertise and the expected quality. But keep one thing in mind: 'If you pay nuts, you get monkeys'... The budget, as defined on Sortlist, is not a pain, it's a medium that brings the right ambitions with the right expertises. It doesn't mean you have to pay millions to get quality, but that agencies sell hours of talent and talent has a right price depending on the context. Best relevant agencies won't accept projects that are totally undervalued, so the relevancy is also your matter ;-)! Sortlist's experts are always here to help you establish an estimation, so don't hesitate to contact us.
