Our annual BenchPress survey and report highlights the key trends, stats, and averages, allowing UK agencies to benchmark themselves against their peers. Started seven years ago, BenchPress has grown to become the largest survey of independent agency owners in the UK.
The 2019 survey is now open, with agencies of all shapes, sizes, locations and sectors participating in it, providing a benchmark for agency owners all over the UK.
Last year, revealed that confidence remains high amongst agency owners, with their drive and determination to grow in 2018 overriding any doubts about wider market conditions. With the majority of agency owners were forecasting a minimum growth percentage of 11%.
This year's survey will focus on this more looking at cash flow and new business for agencies. Alongside this, we'll also be looking at how agency owners are spending their time.
It’s fantastic to see how much BenchPress has grown over the years. It's all about reflecting the reality of agency life across a wide range of sectors; capturing their successes, challenges and expectations of the year ahead.
With the previous years worth of data to draw on, we’re now able to highlight key trends, make predictions for the future, and share what the UK’s top-performing agencies are doing differently to the rest. We will also be releasing this in a new format this year, allowing participants to engage with benchmarking themselves in real time.
