Marketing planning shared between marketing agency and marketing team
From utopia to reality

Marketing agencies and marketing teams work together on campaigns and marketing projects. But how far does “together” extend?

Digital marketing tools & marketing agencies
Marriage, spider's web or ecosystem?

Marketing agencies are ‘early adopters’ for digital marketing tools. Over the past few years, they have put a great deal of effort into digitising their organisation, much more than the marketing teams for which they develop actions and campaigns. There’s been a successful marriage between marketing agencies and marketing technology. However, the explosion of marketing technology providers, the fragmentation of the office landscape and the emerging digitisation of marketing teams (the clients of the agencies) are endangering that marriage.
