Washington DC Advertising Companies FAQs

Browse our list of award-winning Washington DC advertising agencies above or check out some of our most commonly asked advertising questions below.

Advertising companies help businesses design, implement and assess the success of their advertising campaigns. Sometimes the ad agency also leads sales promotions and branding/marketing initiatives. An advertising agency handles traditional ad methods, but the line between digital and traditional is more blurred. Advertising agencies typically do both to some degree.

WPP, Publicis Groupe, Interpublic Group and Omnicom are known as the big four ad agencies. HQs span the US and Europe. These large agencies also make up many smaller ones. WPP has shown the strongest revenue growth in recent years.

According to the Washingon Business Journal, Crosby Marketing, HZ, a Division of BCW LLC,
Yes & Holdings LLC and RP3 Agency are the largest four ad companies in the DMV.
