What is Agency Spotter?
Agency Spotter is an online marketplace, disrupting agency search, by making it fast and free for marketers to discover, compare and connect with new agencies, design studios and research firms. We’re like match.com for brands and agencies, helping both sides start new relationships, make better decisions, and build great partnerships.
What’s your traction been like thus far?
Every single metric continues to head in the right direction and we have started to see more growth spikes over the last few months. We launched with revenue over a year ago, have continued steady growth while bootstrapping with over 3,200 agencies on the platform, over 670 brands searching for partners, and over 4,500 unique marketers come to search Agency Spotter in April.
What do you know now that you wish you would have known when you started Agency Spotter?
I would consider raising a small amount of money earlier so that we could have focused more energy on growing sales even faster. That said, bootstrapping Agency Spotter has taught our team incredible discipline and how to squeeze maximum value out of everything.

What’s your favorite thing about being an entrepreneur?
I love helping people be successful. Whether that is a team member, a marketer looking for an branding studio, or an agency who needs to build new relationships and win business, I get to help people and scale how helpful we can be.

If your company were an animal, what would it be and why?
That is a hard question. I love animals. Maybe a dog. They are always there for you, you can count on them.
