Top Social Media Marketing Agencies Report

Atlanta-based company Agency Spotter ranked approximately 750 social media agencies this May and chose the New York City-based Bigbuzz Marketing Group as #1 on its first-ever social media marketing agency report.

Bigbuzz Marketing Group has worked with companies such as HBO, Honeywell, Nikon, and Disney. Despite the wide industry range of their clientele, Bigbuzz is able to develop “custom roadmaps” for each of their partners to help them successfully navigate the huge amount of channel opportunities available to marketers today. Their strategy is designed to move merchandise and build brands.

The opportunity really is so much greater in the social space. You are creating a community, where there is a shared experience and content goes both ways, to and from the brand and individuals. That is powerful.

Negeen Ghaisar, Head of Social/Digital Strategy, Bigbuzz Marketing Group

Bigbuzz’s recent social media campaign for the children’s brand, Garanimals, shows they are able to stay on the cutting edge. Targeting millennial moms via social media, the agency engaged with one of the most important audiences in order to refresh the decades-old brand. Their campaign helped Garanimals become Walmart’s #1 selling clothing brand.

“The opportunity really is so much greater in the social space,” said Negeen Ghaisar, the Head of Social/Digital Strategy at Bigbuzz Marketing Group, continuing, “You get the opportunity to build lifelong relationships through a shared voice, telling a story and bringing the brand to life for potential and existing consumers alike. You’re creating a community, where there is a shared experience and content goes both ways, to and from the brand and individuals. That is powerful.”

Aside from consumer goods, Bigbuzz Marketing Group also specializes in the banking, healthcare, and the food and beverage industries.

Number two on the report is the Los Angeles agency Creative Deviants. The agency has worked with companies both large and small, including Volvo, Oakley, Mooney Aircraft, and the Boys & Girls Club. They pride themselves on having achieved success partnering with both established companies and startups that are just planning to launch. The five-star-rated agency does all production in-house, which allows them to “work with their clients’ budgets rather than around them.” Creative Deviants thinks its work speaks for itself, and urges those interested view their online social media marketing portfolio.
