DesignRush Launches First-of-its-Kind Marketplace for Connecting Brands to Agencies
Industry: Digital Media
Platform Aims to Combat $120 million Businesses Waste in Poor Project Performance by Streamlining Agency Sourcing Process
New York, NY (PRUnderground) April 2nd, 2019
DesignRush, the one-stop B2B marketplace that connects brands with agencies, announced today the launch of a new online marketplace where businesses can post digital projects for bid and receive proposals from qualified agencies.
Researching, vetting, communicating with and selecting the right agency can take brands weeks or months of work. DesignRush streamlines the agency sourcing process, empowering brands to find the best possible agency for their goals. Then brand managers can dedicate their time towards growing their business.
“I’ve seen firsthand – from both an agency and a brand perspective – how difficult finding the right agency for a particular project can be,” says DesignRush Founder and Executive Director Gabriel Shaoolian. “DesignRush takes pride in shouldering the heavy burdens of research and organization in order to streamline the agency selection process and save brands massive amounts of time.”
How DesignRush Works
Brands can post digital projects – including full-service digital agency projects, web design, marketing, logo design and branding, app development, video production, software development, technology and more – for just $25.
They can include as many project details as they would like, such as:
- Type of project
- Project due date
- Key performance indicators
- Ideal results
- And more.
Posting a project on DesignRush automatically places it in front of thousands of qualified, top-rated agencies that specialize in each individual project’s requirements.
Interested agencies can then view complete project details and write a customized proposal for the brand, which is submitted directly through the DesignRush platform.
Brands can manage all submitted proposals through their dashboard, as well as take notes, rank proposals, communicate with agencies and select the winner – all in one place. There is no limit to the number of professional, customized proposals a brand can receive for any given project.
Notably, DesignRush does not take any additional middleman fees or commissions. All agreements and financial transactions are done between the brand and their agency of choice.
DesignRush’s agency selection team routinely analyzes hundreds of agencies, determining the top full-service agencies, web design companies, digital marketing firms and other top B2B service companies before allowing them to submit custom proposals.
“We’ve actually turned away over 1,000 agencies who didn’t meet our inclusion standards,” reports Stephanie Sharlow, DesignRush’s Editor-In-Chief. “And it’s those standards that make our marketplace a unique and powerful resource for brands looking to forge a trustworthy and dependable relationship with an agency that’s going to assist them with their long-term business success.”
