Agency Mania is an actionable guide for brand advertisers looking to drive efficiencies and quality outcomes from their agency relationships

Published by Beaufort Books, Agency Mania presents insights and best practices for brand managers, marketers and advertisers, including step-by-step processes on how to pursue, manage and maintain stronger partnerships that yield more cost-effective results. Based on years of experience on both the agency and client sides, Gralpois provides a detailed blueprint for advertisers and agencies to collaborate more effectively.

“While brand advertisers face incredible pressure to drive marketing performance and business growth, they rely heavily on the broad experience of their very talented advertising and communications agency partners,” Gralpois said. “These relationships have been under remarkable pressure in recent years, leading to failed partnerships and high-profile breakups. The goal of this book is to transform the way we approach the client/agency relationship so that both parties involved achieve high-quality work outcomes and successful, lasting partnerships.”

Provocative and eye-opening, “Agency Mania 2nd Edition” draws back the curtain on the vital principles of a strong client/agency partnership. Readers from the C-Suite to the front lines can learn how to avoid common pitfalls and how to apply best practices to turn their agency relationships into powerful, competitive assets. This updated edition, with enhanced illustrations, is a valuable resource for any size advertiser or agency that seeks to fully capitalize on the value of solid and effective client/agency relationships. Words of wisdom from the world’s largest brand advertisers and thought-leaders in the agency business will illuminate and drive results.
