Elite classification in The Drum Independent Agency Census continues award-winning year.

Brighton-based digital marketing agency RocketMill is celebrating the latest in a string of awards, having achieved the coveted Elite status, ranking 5th overall in the 26-50 staff bracket of The Drum’s annual Independent Agency Census.

The Census ranks agencies by client satisfaction, financial performance, and peer recognition, with the top agencies in each size bracket awarded Elite status. RocketMill has already been named a Top 100 agency in 2016 by the Recommended Agencies Register, which collaborates with The Drum on the Independent Agency Census.

Despite healthy revenue growth RocketMill plans to maintain its modest size, and concentrate on delivering a unique mix of consultancy and traditional digital agency work – a mix which they believe gives them a competitive edge at the smaller end of the agency market.

Sam Garrity, RocketMill’s Managing Director, said of the result:

“As a relatively young agency it’s exciting to receive such lofty recognition, especially when it’s heavily related to client feedback.

“We’re seeing two trends in digital marketing – smarter clients and more talent. If you consider the relationship between those trends you can appreciate why more clients are taking activities in-house. We’ve built our agency around these needs, and it’s exciting to see it paying off.”
