Top 20 Marketing Service Providers Announced for New York City

UpCity is excited to announce the winners of our City Excellence Awards, celebrating the top 20 marketing service providers in New York City!

In January of this year, the UpCity Quality Team analyzed over 33,000 marketing service providers on our Marketplace, awarding our first annual UpCity Excellence Awards. The awards were created to celebrate the top 1% of marketing providers, as measured by their UpCity Rating.

What is the UpCity Rating?

In order to provide a credible, unbiased rating of each provider on our Marketplace, UpCity created the UpCity Rating. The UpCity Rating is an algorithm that considers signals and indicators like the number and quality of reviews, website performance, domain authority, and more in order to gauge a marketing service provider’s recommendability. This provides businesses who visit the UpCity Marketplace with an impartial assessment of how one provider stacks up against another in their market and across North America and gives them peace of mind knowing that they are partnering with someone they can trust.
