A creative agency is a type of agency that helps businesses by specialising in a variety of services that fall under the marketing and advertising banner. These services cover everything from conceiving ideas and designing strategy all the way through to executing campaigns and analysing performance.
The overall goal of a creative agency is to conceive and implement creative and effective marketing solutions that support your business goals. Whether that goal is to increase brand awareness, grow market share, or showcase products and/or services.
Every creative agency is structured differently and will offer different processes and procedures. Typically, however, a creative agency will have an account management team and you’ll be assigned your own representative.
They are responsible for managing the client and then liaising with everyone in the creative agency. A good account manager, account director, or account representative will thoroughly comprehend and understand the client’s business and their goals, and will then effectively communicate those needs and visions with the team.
A good creative agency is going to help you find your voice and personality as well as the traits and behaviours of your target audience and create digital assets that represent you and appeal to your potential clients. They will bring new, creative ideas to the table instead of a cookie-cutter approach and design strategies that have been used 100 times before.
Absolutely anybody. No matter the size of your business, a creative agency can provide all of your digital assets, creatives, content, social media, website as well as all of your digital marketing and advertising campaigns. Any business can achieve great things and creative agencies ensure you are sending the right message to the right people.
A creative brief is your document outlining all of your strategies, goals, challenges and objectives so that your creative agency knows exactly what you want to achieve. It should include your branding messages, your personality, the demographics you are trying to reach and any other key information that you think might be relevant. Often, creative agencies will have a template available for you to ensure they are getting all of the information they require.
This varies depending on the creative agency. Some will work on a retainer plus commission, some will work on commission only. There are some creative agencies that only take their fee out of your return on investment. It always pays to shop around, but remember that the cheapest option is not likely going to be the best option either. Weight up the fee schedule with the services provided and review history to find the right fit in your area.
There are many skills required to be a successful creative agent, including being a strong graphic artist, content writer and advertising guru. You will need to understand all social media channels and be able to build strong and engaging websites. Outside of the basics, you will also need to be exceptionally talented when it comes to communication, problem-solving, teamwork, strategising and management.
Jobs are usually charged out by the project and its deliverables, not by the hour. These costs are calculated by the resources that will be required to complete the job and will vary depending on the skill and reputation of the creative agency. Most creative agencies will shape their services around what you are willing to spend (as long as it is viable) so in many instances, the more you pay the better services you will get.
A creative agency provides a variety of services. General service examples include:
i. Strategy services, such as advertising, social media, content, video, branding, digital strategy, and media strategy.
ii. Content creation services, such as the creation of annual reports, white papers, case studies, blogs and article creation, branding, copywriting, graphic design, content planning and publishing, data visualisation, proposal and pitch decks, video content, infographics, animation, photography, web design and development, and EDM and email newsletter management. The list is endless.
iii. Communication services, including media buying, media planning, paid placement, influencer collaborations, branding partnerships, public relations (PR), sponsored content, digital advertising, social media marketing, and print advertising.
An agency is a team, a collective of sharp minds with skills across the board that are going to be able to provide you with exceptional experience and talent. A freelance designer doesn’t always have the same capacity or portfolio, and sometimes aren’t able to offer as much in the way of resourcing.
This will depend on your overall brief and project, as well as the timelines we believe are accurate for the process. You’ll be kept in the loop across each stage.
Look for an agency that treats you like a real human and not just a number. If they have taken the time to meet you personally, tailor an amazing proposal based on your needs, goals and challenges and they rank highly on the creativity scale, they will likely be a good fit for you. Try to avoid the agencies that churn and burn their way through clients as they will not offer the right levels of creativity that is tailored to you.

Creativity is such a subjective area. What appeals to some won’t necessarily work for others. Consider the many varying opinions on a famous artwork, photograph or film. And who’s to say the piece actually ‘worked’, depending on what it’s meant to achieve?
Fortunately, in business, great creativity can be measured. And we’re well aware of this at Shout. That’s why we do more than plan, design, write and execute effective creative solutions for our clients. We guarantee they ‘work’ – to deliver the results they set out to achieve.
Enjoy targeted numbers, on paper, forecast and delivered.
