Pile has worked with sixdegrees to develop agency selection criteria and is in the process of contacting a number of agencies that meet the criteria to determine interest. The review will consist of capabilities presentations and a brand strategy assignment for three the finalist agencies. sixdegrees said it expects to name an agency by mid-October.
The $6 million advertising assignment, which will include both online and off-line media, will involve the creation and implementation of a brand building and membership acquisition campaign.
“In selecting an agency consultant, we were looking for a partner with a demonstrated reputation in the industry and an established, proven selection process,” said sixdegrees Marketing Director Nicole Berlyn. “We were impressed with Pile and Company’s experience in the field and impeccable references.”
Pile has managed more than 350 advertising, public relations, direct marketing and interactive agency reviews over its 13-year history.
