The Sprout agency team and I work with 1,000 agency partners and thousands of agency customers.
These social media and digital marketing agencies offer best-in-class services and consulting to their clients, big and small.
One in five provide full-service marketing to clients, and nearly 25% have a full-blown paid social media services offering to supplement the integrated marketing campaigns they execute on social. That, plus SEO, SEM, PR, email marketing, web development and more.*
It’s a lot.
Which is why we take a moment every year to recognize the excellence our agencies achieve with our Agency Partner Value Awards.
These awards echo a tradition we have at Sprout to celebrate those that achieve great things and move our company forward.
Our Partner Value Awards recognize agencies who Cultivate their clients’ success, have an Always Be Growing mentality, are MVPs in the #SproutPartner community and work hard to build amazing Social Media Campaigns.
The culmination of these awards is our Partner of the Year: the agency that embodies each and every one of the categories and helps us all move the industry forward.
We couldn’t be more excited to recognize this year’s Partner of the Year: Digital Natives Group.
Our Director of Marketing Strategy and founder of the Agency Partner Program, Tara Robertson puts it best:
“At Sprout Social, we care deeply about the success of our team and customers, and we look for that same type of dedication from our partners. Digital Natives Group is a perfect embodiment of these values, and this is why we are so excited to recognize it as our 2018 Agency Partner of the Year. From delivering world-class client services to creating innovative campaigns to continuing to push the agency community forward, the team at Digital Natives is a shining example of how great relationships are born from putting your team and clients first.”
A member of the partner program’s founding class, Digital Natives has consistently invested in its social offering and how it impacts clients’ bottom line.
An example of how the team puts clients first:
Thank you to the team at @ComcastNBCUCI for a year of storytelling around purpose and mission, work that inspired us to consider how we could improve the way we incorporate these values into the work we do.
