The IPA’s quarterly Bellwether report, released this week, revealed that marketers feel more pessimistic about the financial prospects of their firms than earlier in the year. If you’re facing more pressure on your budget, you’ll want an agency that knows how to make a budget work as hard as possible.

To help with that, we’ve pulled together a list of 20 London agencies, each rated by their clients for providing value for money on The Drum Recommends. It’s a free service designed by The Drum to help marketers find relevant, trusted agencies. Recommendations are based on reviews by the people best placed to judge their expertise – their clients.

Every year, The Drum Recommends receives thousands of ratings from advertisers. Marketers complete a survey that scores their agency’s performance, the quality and range of their services, as well as price. Agencies must receive at least three client ratings to become recommended for a service.

Below, you’ll find the names, headcount and office locations of 20 top-scoring London agencies for value for money as rated by their customers.
