Choosing among the 10 best advertising agencies is not an easy task, especially since each work methodology applies and adjusts differently according to the client.
To the extent that to create a ranking of the top agencies in Mexico City is required a methodology that goes beyond billing and profit.

Once again Endor is making an appearance in the Ranking of best advertising agencies of Mexico 2018, just like last year 2017.
We had a huge improvement, moving from 178th place to 67th, the number of agencies involved was 294, which means a great step forward towards our goal to consolidate ourselves as the best branding, design and advertising agency in Yucatan and the Southeast of Mexico.
For us this achievement was due to the methodology that over many years we hace managed to improve and continue to improve.
It is a great honor for any agency to receive a place in this ranking. It acts as motivation for starting agencies, so they can look up to the most important agencies of Mexico.
We leaped 111 spots, an improvement of more than 60% compared to last year.
How are positions determined in this ranking?
Five variables are taken into account, since each represents a percentage of the final score for the ranking:
- Number of employees
- Total accounts
- Digital presence (social network followers, engagement, content production)
- Years participating on the ranking
The top agencies are large companies, names already recognized with international presence, great tradition on the industry and excellent work. We feel really honored to be sharing a spot with all of them!
What is the benefit of appearing in this ranking?
Aside from having the honor of sharing a spot with advertising agencies with years of experience and innovation, you also get recognition from agencies and potential costumers.
The closer you are to the first positions the more likely it is to land new accounts, since companies see you as an opportunity to grow their business. It gives you credibility in the market and everyone knows you are in an important place.
You can also use this ranking to know how much you have improved year by year.
How do I rank higher?
Going up in the ranking is improving in all the key areas we mentioned before: billing, employees, accounts, digital presence and years, but keep in mind that although you get better at them, the competition will improve as well.
Think of it this way: there are more and more agencies and you can’t stop growing if you want to get to the first spots.
Not only on the ranking, but in a professional way. An agency that is not growing or innovating can not be in the ranking.
But even worse, if you don’t grow or update your methodology, the agency you belong to could seize to exist.
What is next for Endor?
We still got a lot of work to do, we are currently focused on our methodology, because we believe you should never stop improving, which is why we are certain next year we will keep climbing up spots.
Alongside the efforts of our account and creative teams, and the openings of new units in different points of the country, our constant specialized work in key areas such as brand agency, analysis, planning and creativity.
There are still a lot of things to be done, but we are certain that we will keep growing and climbing up, because you keep us moving forward.
