Looking to find the very best Ad agencies in New York? You're in the right place.

Everyone knows that there are hundreds, if not thousands, of advertising agencies in New York, so it can often become a challenging task to find a trusted agency that fits your exact needs.

This is exactly why we've written this article, to make the search for an agency much, much easier.

In this post, we've included advertising agencies that cover various services and industries, including:

  • Social
  • B2B
  • TV/AV/Media
  • Creative
  • Digital

Let's dive in.

What makes a top Advertising agency?

So, what are the reasons these ad agencies got included in this article?

We've undergone a thorough research process that covers all of the reasons below to find agencies you can partner with that have been vetted properly.

  • Case Studies, Portfolio & Results. Go check out the brands they've previously worked with and see how they represent themselves within their marketing, website and branding. If they've worked with brands similar to yours or businesses of a similar size, even better!
  • Cost. We've picked a wide range of agencies that work with all types of budgets. With some focused on delivering solutions for large enterprises and others who are more focused on small businesses. Different agencies have different day rates, so find an agency that fits with your budget, but it's advised not to pick one that's also massively under your budget. Typically, the larger their team size, the larger the day rate - but this isn't always the case.
  • Communication. During the enquiry stage, has their communication been efficient? If they're slow to respond or seem uninterested, then it's time to move on... quickly.
  • The Agencies Team. Firstly, it's important to consider which of their team will actually be working with. Sometimes agencies say they have experience in fashion, which they might, but have they assigned you a team that's worked on another fashion brand? Secondly, there needs to be good chemistry with your agency team. You need to be able to connect, enjoy each other's company and work well together.

Now we've gone through what makes a good Advertising agency. It's time to take you through the top 13 agencies in New York.

Why hire one of the best Advertising Agencies?

Simply put. Your business deserves it!

There are a lot of good and bad agencies out there. So finding and then hiring the right agency for you is incredibly important for the short and long-term growth of your brand.

Advertising on social media, digital platforms, out-of-home and TV are also key ways to attract your target audience. So without a strategy or strategic partner in place, you'll struggle to grow and hit the targets you've set.
