5. Bernstein-Rein

BR is an independent agency that does more than creating ads. We invent a better way. Ad agencies start with a consumer problem and create an ad campaign. We’re different. We’re entrepreneurs who see a consumer problem and then invent a better way. Sometimes that better way is advertising. Sometimes, it’s not. Inventing a better way is exactly what we’ve been doing for more than 50 years. We’ve started businesses, grown businesses, sold businesses. We’ve developed entirely new retail models. And yes, we’ve created some of the country’s best-known ad campaigns. There’s always a better way. Take it from an agency who’s not just in the advertising business. But in the business business.

8. Mammal

Mammal is a video-based advertising agency creating on-screen solutions for any device and any platform. We work strategically and ‘think in video’ across the entire customer journey and purchase cycle. Why ‘video thinking’? Because as digital and video technologies continue their growth, marketers and audiences are becoming more and more screen-literate.

Whether you seek advertising and marketing solutions in social, pre-roll, other web, TV, point of sale or beyond, Mammal is built to deliver maximum value on video-based components.

An agency that was born integrated and multidisciplinary, where digital is a natural part of DNA and not a department. An agency that was born at the moment in which brands need intensive care - because users are intensive and their relationship with them too - that can only be provided by agencies with partners committed and present on a day-to-day basis. We are an agency that believes in the value of human relationships nurtured by respect.

11. Socialistics

Welcome to Socialistics. After 20+ years of doing it “their” way, we’re ready to re-write the rules when it comes to marketing and it starts with focusing on what really matters… content. Channels and technologies evolve, change, come and go, but great content stands the test of time. If you can effectively tell your company or organization’s story across all your channels and with the right people, well, that’s marketing. Unfortunately, many companies and organizations don’t have the time, money or expertise to pull it off. That’s where we hope Socialistics can fill the gap. Socialistics is about providing an agency solution that doesn’t feel like an agency solution. We work exclusively with small and medium-sized businesses and we do so affordably. Big fancy downtown office? Nope. Expensive, over-sized staff? Nah. Streamlined, results-oriented, experience at your disposal? You bet. Our team’s collective years of experience have worked towards building Socialistics by gaining a wealth of experience, a network of subject matter experts, and a business model that just plain works. No matter what the scope is of your specific marketing needs, Socialistics can help create, curate and connect your story to the world.
