With the new year upon us, we are excited to announce our partnership with Clutch, a B2B ratings and reviews platform for service providers in the IT services, web/app development, and advertising & marketing industries. Clutch uses various metrics such as market presence, quality of work, and verified client reviews to evaluate companies and identify the best agencies on their platform. Our high score on Clutch has earned us a leading position in their directory of the best brand consultants in Canada in 2019.

What makes their platform unique is that their team actually speaks directly with our business partners to get their feedback on their experiences working with Brand & Mortar. In their conversations, our clients have shared why they selected to work with our team over other providers, the scope of our involvement with their company, and specific metrics of success that have come as a result of our partnership.

The reviews we’ve collected so far on Clutch have been a wonderful opportunity for us to reflect on our growth as a company. We don’t always get to receive such honest feedback from our clients through a third-party source and it’s already been more than we expected. Check out what they’ve shared:

In addition to our inclusion on Clutch, we were named one of the best video production agencies in Canada by their sister site, The Manifest. The Manifest provides industry insights, recommendations for business solutions, and how-to guides. We’ve also joined their affiliate site, Visual Objects, amongst their list of leading branding companies in 2019. Visual Objects showcases visual examples of our work.
