DesignRush MARKETPLACE connects qualified brands with verified agencies for different projects such as digital marketing, graphic design, e‑commerce website design, software development, to name a few.
In other words, our team of experts help businesses find the right agency for their project as well as help agencies find clients they can bring most value to.
To ensure we recommend only the most qualified agencies for a project, we take several careful steps from project vetting to agency shortlisting and beyond.
Each Marketplace goes through:
DesignRush only announces thoroughly vetted digital projects in various fields from marketing to software development.
To vet their project, each brand must complete an:
Once we have vetted and announced a project, our team of experts browses thought our network of top-rated agencies to find the best match.
We only shortlist candidates from our pool of verified agencies (get verified now!), reviewing their expertise, rates, portfolios and other information, to find experts who satisfy the project criteria.
Once the best candidates are shortlisted, the DesignRush MARKETPLACE team invites them to bid for the project.
DesignRush MARKETPLACE team sends the shortlisted agencies a bidding invite that is valid for 48h.
The bid represents the amount they are willing to pay for an introductory call with the brand that announced the project. In other words, it’s the amount an agency would pay for a lead.
Please note that bids do not represent the estimated project value.
For each project, 2-5 highest bidders are awarded the lead.
The next two steps are simple.
As soon as the winning bids are settled, DesignRush MARKETPLACE team connects the shortlisted agencies (i.e. the winning bidders) with the brand behind the project via email.
The brand representatives take over from here and begin reviewing the 2-5 recommended agencies.
The rest is up to you!
The winning agencies can then set an exploratory meeting with the potential client to further assess their capabilities with the client’s requirements.
