Some of us will remember the dread of school reports day, desperately trying to scribble that D into a convincing B. Thanks then to Campaign Magazine, for bringing this childhood trauma into our adult lives for those in the ad industry with its annual (and often brutal) agency rankings.
Thankfully, no tippex was required at We Are Social this year. We scored an impressive 8/10, otherwise known as ‘Excellent’. Here are a few of our highlights:
“It’s been a year of steady, though not dramatic, growth for We Are Social – an achievement not to be sniffed at during a time of industry unpredictability. The agency picked up seven accounts and grew its work with existing clients YouTube, Adidas, Samsung and Netflix.”
“As part of (its) innovation focus, the agency launched an Alexa Skill for Domino’s that allows users to order a pizza by asking their Echo devices to feed them. We Are Social also pioneered Snapchat’s animated geofilters on behalf of Samsung for Christmas Day.”
“Diversity is something the agency claims it has been championing since long before its rise to the top of adland’s agenda. More than half (53%) of its staff are female and three of its five most senior employees are women. The agency has also set up #WeAreShe – an internal group to help empower its female employees – and launched an internal diversity task force.”
“All in all, a solid year.”
Thank you to the team at Campaign for a positive write up of what has been another exciting year at We Are Social. We’re looking forward to building on this in 2018.
