The latest Drum Independent Agency Census results are in and we have been rated as one of the top independent agencies in the UK again. We are also one of only two North East agencies to feature on the list which is seen as the annual benchmark for the best of the best.
The Drum is a global media platform for the marketing creative and digital industries. They provide up-to-the-minute industry news from around the globe and showcase marketing that is changing the world. They do this via their website and magazine, award shows, live events and research. The Top 100 Independent Agencies Census is part of their annual research into the sector.
The Top 100 celebrates the best-run independent agencies in the UK and is the most comprehensive study of its kind into the performance of UK agencies. Agencies gain entry into the Top 100 based on performance across six financial metrics – turnover, turnover growth, turnover percentage growth, turnover per head, gross profit and gross profit growth – and two years' worth of financial data is analysed to determine their ranking.
The research also incorporates client satisfaction scores from agency search service The Drum Recommends to champion the agencies delivering value for their customers and not merely deriving it for themselves.
Enigma have consistently featured highly in the Top 100 year on year for the last four years. This year we are one of only two North East agencies to be featured in the list.
