"At Sortlist, we love partnerships that work"
We exist because we believe that any company deserves to work with the most talented partner that believes what the company believes, without any friction.
As a community, we have a very rigorous screening process to identify the best agency out there. We are experts in our domains, and we look for great talents with passion and drive — the types of people we want to work with ourselves.
But how do we do that?
As an agency, you don't want to waste time filtering projects that are not relevant to you. On the contrary, you want to spend your time doing what you do best, building and delivering awesome experiences. Thanks to Sortlist you'll be able to finally focus on pitching your services, while we save you hours scrubbing the web for real active projects.
Therefore, we developed an algorithm capable of going through agencies' profiles and look for relevant agencies in our database, sending you opportunities for which you are the best.
- We take services into consideration in order to send you opportunities matching your core skills, and location for projects where being near is important.
- We also look at previous works and industries in which you have worked, as clients are always looking for previous experience in their industry. This means you receive a project for which you have already a competitive advantage.
- Keywords are also taken into account, allowing every piece of content you want to showcase on your profile to match you with relevant projects.
- As an agency, we know you are proud of your clients and are always trying to find new ways to spread the word of your work together. Therefore, you have the possibility to collect reviews and endorsements, as well as listing your previous works, allowing you to showcase your portfolio. You can also share your social accounts on your profile, allowing the visitor to jump through your pages and discover your social activity.
All this reflects in the attractiveness score of your profile. The more your profile is complete, the more your score will be high, leading to a higher rank on our algorithm and on public directories.
We use the algorithm, then, to identify the right agencies for a specific project based on objective criteria. However, at Sortlist, we strive to deliver a sound and qualitative matching and that is achievable thanks to the effort of our dedicated experts. They spend time analyzing the selected agencies and validating the selection in terms of cultural fit and values, making sure a partnership is possible.
Try to search your agency in our database via our marketing website (e.g. https://www.sortlist.be/en/design/belgium-be), see how you rank, compare your profile to other agencies and adjust it if needed.
Bear in mind that a complete and updated profile, with information about your agency, its services and works, will increase your chances of popping up in our search. (Check this article for the 5 best practices for a good agency profile on Sortlist)
