On Friday 9th May, The Drum announced the results of The 2014 Independent Agencies Census and the team at Sagittarius Marketing were delighted to discover they had been highly voted in one of the UK biggest industry polls!
274 agencies across the UK took part in the census that looked at financials and maybe more importantly client and peer ratings.
Sagittarius Marketing was included within the 1-25 person agency criteria, which excludes the large agencies that are owned by networks or groups. However, the client and peer polls for the 1-25 person agency group were some of the most competitive in the census, proving that you don’t need to be the biggest agency to impress your clients and contemporaries!
The financial poll looked at turnover as well as profit. With the combined turnover of just the agencies surveyed totaling over £1 Billion, the census highlights how strong the Sagittarius figures are. Based on the Recommended Agency Register (RAR), the client poll showed that positive reviews from Sagittarius’ clients rank them amongst the best. The peer poll is recognition of an agencies overall success. Industry votes were merged with public votes to score the most respected independent agencies in the UK.

Paul Stephen, CEO at Sagittarius commented, “Being recognised within the census is a recognition of the hard work, determination and commitment that we have within the agency. To be ranked 63rd in the peer poll is a testament to agency and the people within it, without whom we would not have any of our success.” He added, “If indeed our clients needed any reassurance that they are working with one of the most innovative and leading agencies in the UK, this recognition further cements this”.
