What our customers say

Media Bounty

Media Bounty has been working with the Drum Recommends for the last couple of years. We have recently won our first Drum Recommends client, Wainwright, who are part of Marston’s PLC. The Wainwright team were looking for a social media agency and researched the most highly recommended on The Drum Recommends platform. We have just launched our first campaign for them and the relationship and the work is developing really well. It really does make new business a great deal easier when brands get in touch with you having seen that you come highly recommended. Thanks to The Drum Recommends.

- Jake Dubbins, Media Bounty

MMT Digital

“We have been The Drum Recommends members for 5+ years and have only positive things to say. In that time, the account management has always been excellent and we have seen first-hand how more and more client-side marketers are using The Drum Recommends to find agencies.”

- Rob, MMT

Woven (formerly INK Digital)

“Why do we love the The Drum Recommends? The answer is simple, it’s a recognised impartial platform where our clients can leave honest ratings and feedback which in turn attracts new clients. Yeah, there’s been the odd blip here and there in the system, but the support we’ve received from the RAR team, the great awards evenings we’ve shared and the accolades from our clients have been amazing.”

- Helen Darlington, Woven

Thinking Juice

"Awards as voted for by your own clients could not get more important. The Drum Recommend awards are unique in that the client community are independently surveyed to review their marketing services providers, making it a reliable resource for companies and individuals looking for the right agency to do business with. Our hard work has been recognised over 50 times as finalists and we have been fortunate to win everything from Best in Advertising to Best in Digital Strategy. Our full membership is extremely valuable to not only our new business strategy, but it validates the hard work of our very special team."

- Guy Stradling, Thinking Juice
