Creative Digital Agency or Digital Creative Agency: Is there a difference?

So, you run a business and it’s time you took the marketing up a notch. You know you need a professional agency, BUT, you are not sure which kind of agency you need. A digital agency? A creative agency? Or wait…do you need a social media marketing company in Ahmedabad to target a very specific audience?

Now, you might think they are all the same fantastic beasts with different names. Or you might they are different Pokémons with their superpowers. (proud millennial here).

Traditionally, businesses have relied on advertising agencies or a geographically specific branding agency in Ahmedabad and other cities, to promote and market their brand. An advertising agency typically designs and writes copy for advertisements run in print such as newspapers, hoardings and magazines, designs collaterals for events, conceptualises and creates television commercials, creates radio jingles….you get the idea.

But times have changed and the platforms for promoting your business are no longer restricted to print and television. Digital is now a more pervasive and cost-effective medium, to market and advertise businesses to customers right where they are: On Their Phone!

As you consider digitally marketing your business, it’s time to understand the differences between a digital creative agency and a creative digital agency and how they fit under the umbrella of an advertising agency.

What does it take for an agency to become a Top Creative Agency?

A creative digital agency’s role is to make your brand stand out. This can be done through weaving captivating stories created through stunning visuals and words, creating concepts that inject life into your business offerings and creating a unique brand voice for your business.

The output of this can be a single unique graphic design, an animated video, a memorable website, a social media campaign, newsletters and packaging.

This usually requires the creative brains of a visualiser or graphic designer, video animator, illustrator, or content writer, all of whom work together for your business to stand out through creative storytelling across any medium – offline or digital.

So if you want to create mind-blowing brand campaigns, whether audio, video or pictorial and someone to craft your brand’s personality memorably, then a digital creative agency is the way to go. In India, Flora Fountain consistently ranks as one of the best creative agencies in Ahmedabad for lifestyle, fashion, food, travel, education, medical and media brands.

What makes any agency the best digital agency?

Once the creativity is put on paper or in bytes, a digital creative agency’s work comes into the picture. Digital agencies work on creating a strategy to market a business and then executing this on various digital platforms like websites, social media, search engines, mobile applications and more.

A creative digital agency helps businesses amplify their brand on digital platforms. This is usually done through digital marketing practices like search engine optimisation, social media marketing, paid promotions on Google, Facebook, Instagram, Youtube and other such mass platforms, developing websites and ecommerce management for the brand.

The services offered by digital agencies include:

  • Search Engine Optimisation or SEO
  • Pay Per Click or PPC advertisements on search engines and social media
  • Email Marketing
  • Social Media Marketing and Management
  • Influencer Marketing
  • Affiliate Marketing
  • Collaborations with other digital entities and influencers
  • Web design and development

Apart from executing these services, strategy is one of the core services offered by digital agencies to businesses, where the agency collects data and analyses the brand, their competition, their users’ needs, desires, expectations and engagement with the brand across all digital platforms.

This kind of data-driven research helps digital agencies create and target a brand’s ideal audience with curated content, both organically and via paid ads. This creates more data to analyse and use as feedback for the next round of strategic digital campaigns.

Research + Strategy + Execution lies at the core of Flora Fountain’s DNA and is what makes us a top digital agency in Ahmedabad with clients worldwide.
