We'd love to hear about you and your agency. Get in touch.
Becoming a member
Most of our members value being around other agency owners who are incredible helpful and open about running their agencies. Peer support. Especially those that are ahead of them in the growth journey. They can learn from other people’s mistakes.
The events are great places to meet people, but also learn from the experts we bring in. Many of our agencies didn’t know some of the basic things they needed to fix before they joined. Now they’ve grown significantly as a result.
No. We are inclusive of all agency sizes, as long as you are not a freelancer who lives off working for agencies. That makes for very boring conversation between an agency owner who has 10 full time people and you.
Mainly independent agencies from startup to £10M turnover. See the types of agencies in our community section here
We’d love to support your whole agency, but some of the conversations that agency owners have with each other an account manager for example just won’t be able to relate to. It will also make agency owners not open up as much about their challenges.
Therefore The Agency Collective is a community exclusively for agency owners and shareholding Directors. To create a safe environment where agency owners can openly talk about anything.
We take a lot of care to not create an environment where agency owners don’t feel like they are constantly sold to. Therefore we only rarely let in highly selected suppliers, approved by the community.
Yes we do. We have a fair few members from outside the UK. Some of them are Online members and others travel from abroad to attend our epic events. That’s true dedication to your agency! Find out more about the membership options for agencies from abroad.
We have four main hubs: London, Manchester, Edinburgh and Bristol. But sometimes host local events if the demand is high enough.
No way. Our events are super relaxed. We’re encouraging a place where you feel comfortable, no matter how you dress. Some people come in tshirts (our MD, Daniel loves his black tshirts), some in dresses, others in suits and others in wacky outfits (especially during our seasonal events ;)).
“Scaling” membership tier
It’s a membership tier that only allows 10 agencies at a time to be part of. The minimum criteria is that you are turning over at least £1M. It has a strict qualification process and only a select few agencies ever make it.
We based this mainly on the type of agency and how the personality of the agency owner fits into the group. They group get together on a regular basis with some of the most influential and successful people in our industry to discuss how to Scale their agency.
If you’re interested in Scaling, give Anne a shout: firstname.lastname@example.org
Yeahhhh, that ol’ chestnut. We only ever allow 10 agencies into this group. The best thing is to get in touch and we’ll chat to discuss your options.
Yes. The minimum size is £1M turnover at the end of your last financial year, when applying for membership.
The more specialised you are, the easier this process becomes (take the ‘how specialised are you’ test here). When you join we give you a call to find out what you’re really good at and what type of people and agencies you want to be introduced to.
100% yes. Just because you offer a wide range of services, to a wide range of clients does not make you a bad agency. Also you will learn a lot from your peers along the way.
Absolutely. We’d love to take you through the journey of becoming an agency specialist. If you’d like to specifically learn how to become a specialist, download your starter kit here.
Congrats. You’re part of a group of agencies that will most likely go far in their journey. We want to help you capitalise on your expertise. We provide introductions to complimentary agencies and new business partnership events for agencies, where we match you up with suitable new business partnerships.
I'd like to speak at one of your events / host a workshop for your agencies / be on one of your panels.
Cool 🙂 Let’s chat and see if there is a fit. Give Yiuwin a shout, via email@example.com
