Imagine sitting down to sew a teddy bear by hand. Yes, it’s doable, but it may take a very long time to finish the project, and the final outcome might be underwhelming compared to the inspiration. That’s how a lot of brands can feel taking on their own social media campaigns – it’s tedious, painstaking, and resource-consuming to get the basics down, let alone finding how to make the campaign pop and show desired results. 

Now imagine making the toy at Build-A-Bear. You can get specific with what the exact desired outcome will look like, customize its appearance, and receive expert help and troubleshooting from the skilled employees present. At the end of the process, you’ve saved yourself time and a headache, and gotten the bear you wanted. PPC management acts in the same way Build-A-Bear does – answering the brand’s specific questions to achieve specific goals, craft and launch a cross-channel campaign around them, and monitor the outcome to continue optimizing the campaign.  

Who’s leading the digital marketing charge? You have heard of the Big 6 advertising agencies: WPP, Omnicom Group, Publicis Groupe, Dentsu, Interpublic and Havas. These are the biggest names in paid media right now, spearheading the paid social media campaigns behind household names like Apple, Disney, the NFL, Spotify, United Airlines, and more. They hold their titles for good reason – the Big 6 are experts at paid social media strategies, and utilize their skills to drive traffic to your website, lower ad spend, craft google ads, and increase brand awareness. 

However, when it comes to efficiency and expertise in the latest industry changes and how to leverage them for sustainable growth, there are specialized and highly effective partners to work with to optimize your marketing strategy. Boutique studios and consultancies with the best expert talent out there are the name of the game now for long-term partnerships and rapid growth. Enter the 7 best paid media agencies of 2023:
