The Digital Agency Rate Card Survey is based on a survey of nearly 400 UK digital agencies, carried out in September and October 2016.

The objective of this research, carried out in association with Marketing Week and Design Week, is to show what UK digital agencies charge for different types of skills and levels of seniority, and to understand how and why rates may vary, for example by size of company and region.

The report will help you benchmark day rates for more than 50 individual job roles, including positions such as creative director, digital content strategist and social media consultant. We are confident that this report provides practical value both for those working client-side who want to understand what the going rate is for different services, and also for agencies who want to benchmark their own fees.

The report also contains sections on business confidence and projected turnover increases which have once again enabled us to provide top-line data about the health of the industry.
