What does a creative agency do? A creative agency is a company that develops and executes innovative responses to help businesses with their marketing by increasing brand awareness, highlighting products or services and most importantly, drive profits. Many creative agencies offer services like branding, marketing, advertising, design, public relations, social media and many more.
Many companies hire creative agencies to outsource the work they may not have an in-house team for and to utilize experts in the field. This additional support can also help companies free up their internal team to focus on other work advancing the business. Typically, if a business is looking to increase profits, they'll turn to agencies to create a marketing strategy to amplify the business as a brand to help achieve their goals.
You may find a variety of titles and roles at agencies but generally the most common leadership roles in a creative agency are: Project Managers, Account Managers, Creative Director, Traffic Manager, Account Director and Brand or Marketing Managers.
