2017 was an exciting year for UpCity and for our Local Agency Marketplace. Reflecting the value we’re providing agencies seeking new clients and SMBs seeking reliable, high quality agencies, we now have more than 15,000 agencies in more than 300 markets across the United States and Canada! Thank you!

And while we’re making some big improvements in 2018, we’d like to start by recognizing stand-out agencies which made huge efforts in 2017 to build their presence, gather high-quality reviews from clients, and provide great experiences to businesses which use the UpCity marketplace every day.

UpCity Names the 2018 Top Agencies, Representing the top 1% of US Agencies

Without question, all of the UpCity agencies across the United States provide great digital marketing services to clients in their local markets. However, we want to recognize agencies who go above and beyond what’s expected on a consistent basis. After seven years serving the agency market, Upcity is proud to announce its 2018 Top US Agency list, which showcases the top 1% agencies in the UpCity network.

Congratulations to the top agencies, which earned their spots through incredible client focus and outstanding work on their clients’ behalves! Well done!  

Here are some of the most prominent service categories in the marketplace today, and the preeminent players in those categories:

Top Web Designers in the United States

Top Digital Agencies in the United States

Top SEO Agencies in the United States

Top PPC Agencies in the United States

These top agencies were determined by our new UpCity Rating system that takes into account first party reviews, location, website performance and a number of other variables to help determine the best marketing providers in the marketplace.  

An Improved Badging Center & Self-Badging Experience

One of the benefits of our certified partner program is access to our badging center in the UpCity application, which allows partners to log in and select customized badges based on speciality, which can be easily embedded into an agency’s website to help demonstrate an agency’s reputation.

New Reviews Made a Difference, and Agencies Made an Impact

Throughout November and December, new reviews of Certified Partners not only helped small and medium sized businesses find great digital marketing partners, but also made a global impact. We pledged to donate $10 for each new review generated by Certified Partners to charity. As a result of the hard work of agencies throughout our marketplace, we donated of $3,700 to Feeding America at the beginning of January – talk about a great way to start the year!

Receiving client reviews is the best way for an agency to increase their profile’s UpCity rating and achieve a higher list placement. Browse our top reviewed agencies for a true look at how impactful reviews are on an agency’s list placement.
