what we do

how it works

An efficient and zero cost service to find you the right agency.

Using GO! maximises your time, reduces risk and makes finding the right agency an efficient and enjoyable experience. What makes this work? Here's an overview of our agency search process.

1

START WITH THE CHALLENGE

We put NDAs in place so we can provide unbiased advice and benchmark your current agency performance. We’ll assess your current challenges and see what we can do to help.

You’re always welcome to grab some advice from the team and leave it at that – in fact, we support a number of brands long-term without any need for a pitch. We’ll only start to suggest alternatives or agency search if you tell us you want to go down that route.

2

confirm the brief

If you do decide to take your project/retainer out to market, we’re here to guide the process.

We’ll book a slot in your diary for your relationship manager to ask all the right questions needed for us to draft a brief and send it back for approval in no time.

From here, we’ll already have an idea of agencies that might be able to support, and will begin working with our agency search team.

3

Run the Pitch

We’ll agree on a pitch process that works best for you and your team, based on your workload, timescales and experience. We’ll handle all the admin and make sure the whole process runs smoothly.

We will endorse a shortlist of agencies based on their suitability to the agreed criteria, for you to choose who to take forward. Pitches can then be done remotely, on-site or at our award-winning Manchester Head Office. The aim is to give you a difficult decision to make but never to overload.

4

Mutual Success

Once you have settled on the agency you want to appoint, the good news will be shared (either directly from yourselves or via us). GO! will deliver feedback to those that are unsuccessful meaning all parties leave the process with a positive and constructive sentiment.

Contracts are handled directly between yourselves and the agency, though we are on hand to advise and support.We’ll continue to be there if you need us, checking in and supporting the relationship as you grow.

why it

works.

Truly understanding your channels and challenges.

Our model is based on the ethos of raising the bar of Brand-Agency relationships. This starts by having a best in class team who really understand modern marketing priorities in their sectors. 

Your dedicated Brand Relationship Manager will help you take maximum benefit from our coverage and market knowledge. 

And the GO! Network goes way beyond simply finding you the right partners. Our aim is to become a trusted resource for market intelligence, benchmarking and thought leadership – continuously keeping you connected to best practise.

UNBIASED SUPPORT BASED ON MORE THAN JUST A 'FILTER'.

Because we only benefit when you're actually working with an agency we've endorsed, there's no vested interest in promoting any agency other than the ones that are exactly right for your needs.

We won’t just match based on specialisms or case studies – that's what Google's for. We'll understand your needs across a whole scope of considerations from preferred ways of working to size, location and set up, to ensure we really are finding a good culture fit.

This means you only see agencies we’re sure can exceed expectations, making for a competitive pitch process.
