What does it take to rank in the top 10?

In order to rank on one of our top 10 lists, you must satisfy the following requirements. Please keep in mind that you will only be charged if you make it to the top 10.

Be in business for a minimum of 5 years

The company must be in business for a minimum of 5 years. Although this is not necessarily a determining factor of what makes a top agency, we require it because it demonstrates that the company has been in business consistently and will likely be around for more time to come.

Submit a diverse portfolio for our ranking team to review

It is important that the agency has a diverse portfolio for our ranking team to assess. Submitting a few similar pieces is not sufficient, as our team looks for firms whose projects require custom work. We assess projects for usability, style, coding, complexity, and customization.

Have reviews of your business on other sites like Google+, Yelp, YP, and other review sites

Transparency is key! If there are no reviews (whether positive or negative) about your agency, it's a red flag. Although we understand that not every review will be a 5-star rating, it is important that we not only see transparency on the agency’s side, but also that its clients were passionate enough about the firm to write a review.

Be open to our ranking team calling your clients for testimonials on your work and service

In order to get an unbiased look at the agency’s services, our ranking team will randomly call past clients of each agency in order to get their honest and unbiased opinion of the firm in question.

Cooperate with our ranking team

Last and certainly not least, we assess how the agency works with our team during the review process. Their responses to our inquiries and level of cooperation tells us a lot about how they do business. Agency attitude and ethics play an important role in our ranking system.

What happens next?

  • Enter your credit card details. You will not be charged unless you make it to one of the Top 10 Design Firms lists.
  • Our ranking team will review your submission to determine if you have what it takes to be featured in our top rankings.
  • We decide the next month's Top 10 rankings list mid-month. If chosen, we'll reach out to let you know you made it to the Top 10. Only then will your card be charged.
  • If you don't make it to one of our Top 10 lists, you won't be charged. 

Good Luck!
