Clutch, the leading B2B ratings and reviews platform, has ranked Catchword #1 worldwide for branding in its annual report on Global Leaders in Advertising and Marketing AND placed Catchword in the #3 position for best B2B service providers in every category in its Global 1000 list for 2019.
“With an impressive array of projects and clientele, superior knowledge, and attentive, detail-oriented customer service, the Clutch Global 1000 companies have established themselves as industry leaders both locally and in the global B2B market,” Clutch founder Mike Beares said in a release.
The Global 1000 companies range in expertise from software development to design to digital marketing to naming. Catchword leads the agencies in this year’s list from Clutch’s naming services category. The next highest ranked naming firms came in at 16, 24, and 68.
“We are thrilled to be placed so highly on the Global 1000, and to gain the top spot for branding as well, particularly after our recognition in June as #1 naming agency for the third year,” said Maria Cypher, Catchword principal and cofounder. “It’s the perfect way to close out a fantastic 2019.”
Although Catchword is a dedicated naming firm, the 2019 report for Advertising and Marketing groups naming with general branding, and Catchword topped the list. No small feat given the fierce competition on Clutch for naming and branding services. Naming, in particular, has exploded this year, with 1,366 agencies listed as offering the service in June and 2,279 today. (For comparison, the total was 615 in 2018 and only 159 in 2017.)
Through in-depth phone interviews with verified clients, Clutch evaluated companies from 35 countries and 374 cities based on
- quality and recency of verified client reviews
- industry expertise
- portfolio of clients
- brand reputation
- ability to deliver results
“We are deeply grateful to the clients who took the time to give Clutch feedback on their Catchword experience,” said Catchword principal Mark Skoultchi. “The client and project details in these reviews are more valuable for potential clients than simple testimonials or star ratings, so we are especially proud to be a top agency on this platform,” he continued.
