This year, we launched the second edition of our Mailchimp & Co Benchmark Report for agencies and freelancers in partnership with BenchPress and The Agency Collective.
For this one-of-a-kind report, we surveyed over 2,000 marketing professionals from around the world about their revenue, overhead, staffing, client acquisition, working hours, and more. This year’s report is an invaluable resource for understanding how the agencies and freelancers we surveyed stack up against their peers—and what top performers do differently to stand out.
As we compiled the report, a key theme kept emerging: Pride. Over and over again, respondents told us that no matter what challenges they faced over the last year, they remained immensely proud of their work, their businesses—and themselves, too.
You can take in some of these responses, along with valuable data, actionable insights, and stories from creative professionals by downloading the report. (And if you’re not already a member, we’d love for you to join Mailchimp & Co. Signing up is easy, fast, and free.)
For now, we’re celebrating the people behind the numbers by sharing some of our community’s proudest moments and biggest successes of 2021.
We hope these insights and quotes help you find inspiration this year and beyond.
