CREATE® FOR AGENCIES

create-logo-150-tmCREATE® FOR AGENCIES

We believe ambitious agencies, that want to break the rules and change the creative industry should be applauded, and supported. That is why we have developed a version of our world’s first agile consultancy model for digital transformation, CREATE®, specifically for agencies.

We want to be clear. CREATE® for Agencies, won’t be for everyone. If you are happy doing what you do, delivering the same services you always have, and ignoring the world of digital, analytics and creativity. Then CREATE® for Agencies is not for you.

If you want to transform and be at the forefront of the digital revolution, then CREATE® for Agencies can help you succeed.

The CREATE® for Agencies agile consultancy model is like no other consultancy model on the market. Knowing that time is of the essence for agencies, we have specifically designed the programme to identify, test and implement learnings quickly; we won’t waste your time (or budget).

The programme has been developed with input from a range of leaders in digital business; from a global business school Professor of Practice, an academic from a leading Russell Group University and a senior Chartered Marketer.

Along with our full CREATE® agile consultancy process (found here), our Agency model also delivers results and recommendations across:

  • Embedding analytics deep into your agency.
  • How to manage millennials.
  • Integrating digital across all your campaigns and within your organisation.
  • Transforming for creativity.
  • Developing high-performance pitch teams.
  • Managing case study and client testimonial processes.
  • How to win awards.
  • Hiring for success.
  • Creating a winning leadership psychology.

If you want to transform your agency for growth, then CREATE® for Agencies is for you. We have a variety of tailored time-based models, which range from a 9-day to a 180 day programme. So whatever your urgency, or ambition, we can help you get there.

If you are a new CEO or agency leader, you might also want to check out our CREATE® for C-Suite programme.

The Holmes Report Testimonial

“Dean is one of the smartest minds I have worked with in the marketing business.

His strategic insight and creativity helped to transform our digital content and social media approach, despite the pressures of working on realtime deadlines across such major events as the Global PR Summit.

He has that rare knack for zeroing in on the pivotal challenge in any scenario and has been able to develop unique ideas to address these, always keeping in mind the relevant business realities.
Most importantly, perhaps, Dean brings a positive mentality that is just as focused on execution and deliverables. Working with him is always fun.”

OUTSOURCED STRATEGISTS

AGENCY SERVICES: OUTSOURCED STRATEGISTS

Creativity, analytics and digital are becoming important growth drivers for agencies. Yet, according to The Creativity in PR report by The Holmes Report, despite over 70% clients expecting higher levels of creativity from agencies, just 39.4% agencies had a permanent creative director.

A recent report by Spencer Stuart found that data and analysis-driven decision-making was also a quality that the majority of CMOs would like to see more of in their team’s culture, yet the largest talent gap, is still analytics.

We understand that creating roles for a new creative and/or digital strategy directors can be a big investment. Although clients might be pushing for greater creative or digital strategic support, they may not pay enough to warrant hiring a full time person. So even when the new full time hire is made, it can take months before they are covering their own costs.

For many agencies, this creates a catch-22 situation. If you don’t hire, you may lose the client, and if you do hire it could take months before you reap the rewards.

Our outsourced strategists service solve this dilemma. Our approach is simple; we can provide agencies with an outsourced creative and digital strategy director. The strategist can act as part of the agency team (including holding a business card and email address) which means they can provide direct client counsel and help build new business until you are financially ready to make a full time hire.

Benefits of outsourcing:

  1. Access to experienced, well-connected, strategists with a wide range of industry knowledge
  2. Part of the team; our strategists can lead pitches and work directly with clients
  3. Risk-free; we help you build the offering and once you hire a full time director, we can step back
  4. Flexible days; our strategists can be there one-day-a-week or several days a month
  5. Cost effective; you don’t have to pay for a full time hire, just increase the days as-and-when needed
  6. Ability to grow junior team; our strategists can provide leadership and training to help get the core team in place
  7. Support in creating vendor relationships; enabling agencies to get the right tools in place for analytics and digital services

According to a recent Spencer Stuart survey, whilst 71% of CMOs state that strategic thinking is their top strength, just 17% feel the same way about digital marketing. In fact, even fewer have confidence in their data analytics & insights skills.
If that sounds like you? We can help.

DMA Testimonial

“Dean at epifny consulting was quick to recognise the DMA is an ambitious member association, and fully immersed himself into our mission and objectives.
The strategy he developed has proved to be a perfect fit for the organisation, and is already being integrated across our business and communications activities.
His ability to combine data insights, creativity and business understanding to deliver powerful, yet achievable recommendations, has proven invaluable for us.  I would gladly recommend epifny consulting to any other organisation serious about transforming to make an impact in the modern world.”

REPORTS & eBOOKS

AGENCY SERVICES: REPORTS & eBOOKS

Having a point of view is easy. Finding time to create content that showcases your original thinking can be more difficult. That’s why we offer white label development of reports and ebooks for agencies (and their clients). That means we work with you to create the content, and you get all the credit for it.

So far this year, we have already created two in-depth digital transformation ebooks for a global agency and brand, but don’t ask us who for. We simply can’t (and won’t say).

Our approach is simple. We help you establish the area you want to focus upon, and we will identify the best statistics, trends and narrative to bring this to life. We can create the entire publication from start to finish, or do the time consuming tasks and your team can finalise for publication.

Our report and ebook activities include:

  • Internal interviews to identify a powerful creative narrative
  • Identification of statistics, trends and insights to support your point-of-view
  • Creation of report or ebook structure and content
  • Development of quotes for thought-leadership promotion
  • Complete ebook design and development
  • Creation of associated presentations and speech-scripts for use at conferences and events
  • Social media content creation including Tweets and social posts for promotion activities

If you would like to reach new audiences and increase subscribers and awareness of your agency, get in touch online or call us on +44 (0)1582 635889. We’d love to hear from you.
