Blog: How to Hire an Ad Agency

Interesting read from BusinessWeek, here’s a excerpt:

10 guiding principles to consider when looking for an advertising agency

1. Don’t limit your search geographically.
2. Don’t screen out agencies based on size.
3. Don’t make industry experience a requirement.
4. Don’t ask for—or even entertain—speculative work.

10. Do narrow your list to two or three agencies and spend time at their shop.
