The World's Leading Customer Engagement Agency
In November 2012, OgilvyOne was named the Sole Leader by Forrester Research, Inc, in its independent report, "The Forrester Wave™: Customer Engagement Agencies," Q4 2012, in an evaluation of 13 agencies.

Forrester, a leading global research and advisory firm, defines Customer Engagement Agencies (CEAs) as: "agencies that focus on defining customer-oriented business strategies and mapping them to tactics and execution. They help clients maximize customer profitability and optimize customer experiences by applying data and analytics to every interaction."

As the leading Customer Engagement Agency, our core promise to clients is to help them unlock the full value of customers. We do this by turning big ideas and data into personal experiences to help our clients win more customers and make them more valuable.

Doing this requires a broad range of specialty capabilities as well as a relentless focus on the customer experience. We've invested heavily in our engagement planning tools and processes, our technology infrastructure and our data analytics capabilities. The integration of our performance marketing group, Neo@Ogilvy, has allowed us to expand our approach to acquiring and engaging customers beyond traditional CRM channels.

Unlocking the Full Value of Customers
Most companies fail to appreciate the full value that customers can bring to their business. They see a customer as a single transaction or a small series of transactions. They undervalue customers emotionally and financially, and under-invest in the ones who really bring the greatest value to their business.

As leaders in direct marketing, we see customers differently. Our entire global network is devoted to helping our clients find attractive new customers and to make them more valuable. We appreciate the full value and contribution that customers bring to a business. We know who pulls the freight over the long haul, and who influences others.

And we don't just measure customer value, we unlock it through activation of three main drivers: Customer Experience, Rewards and Behavioral Economics.

Creative Excellence
Creativity, the secret sauce for any customer engagement agency, is our lifeblood. This year, Ogilvy outperformed every agency in the most prestigious industry creative awards, and was voted the most creative agency in Cannes as well as the most effective agency at the Effie awards.

As one of the leading direct marketing and digital marketing agencies, our creative work delivers results. We've won more than twice as many Direct Marketing Association (DMA) ECHO awards as our nearest competitor. We are consistently recognized by the DMA for excellence in direct marketing, winning 19 awards in 2012 including the Board of Governors' Award for Strategic Innovation and the USPS Gold Mailbox Award. We scooped 12 awards at the Caples and took home seven Cannes Lions Direct Marketing Awards and four Cyber Lions for excellence in digital marketing.

Leaders in Digital Marketing
In its most recent report into top digital agencies, we were cited as a Leader by Forrester Research, Inc. in its independent report, "The Forrester Wave™: U.S. Interactive Agencies - Strategy and Execution," Q3 2009. We received full marks in three of the five Strategy criteria (Product/Services road map, Discovery and Innovation, and Focus and Reach) and a top score for Account Management.

According to Forrester, OgilvyOne is a Leader because of "its high level of competence across all major criteria — specifically measurement and analytics, account management, and social and emerging media."

Social CRM: Why it is a game-changer and how to win the game
With the rapid adoption of social media, more and more CMOs are asking how they can optimize their social media strategy to create real long term value rather than just short term conversational spikes.

Marketers need to see social marketing not as a media channel, but as a tool for building deeper and more profitable relationships with customers. Customer relationship marketing has never been more important for brands to drive customer value, both individual value (lifetime purchase value), and network value (the value of recommendation and social collaboration with brands).

"Social CRM" is the next evolution of customer relationship marketing. Social CRM is a social media strategy that leverages digital and connected behaviors to unlock deeper customer value for brands, and richer brand experiences for consumers. Combined, these lead to a more profitable customer lifecycle.

Smart Mobility
As leaders in mobile marketing, we published a report into how business-to-business (B2B) brands can leverage "smart mobility" to gain significant competitive advantage. Entitled "Hidden in plain sight: How mobile is quietly revolutionizing the B2B world," the report outlines key mobile opportunities for B2B marketers and describes how to develop mobile strategies for B2B brands.

In developing the report, our researchers spoke to key stakeholders at several large B2B brands representing over half a trillion dollars ($555B+) in market capitalization to understand where they are focusing their efforts and seeing potential for their businesses. There are three key areas where mobile is having the greatest impact for B2B brands: mobilizing marketing, mobilizing the enterprise and mobilizing products and services.
