Latest digital marketing news
Ever wondered what it’s like to work at a digital marketing agency like Fresh Egg?
I’ve been a senior account manager based in our Worthing office for a few months now. It seemed as good a time as any to provide a new starter’s perspective on the agency, so that’s exactly what I’ve done.

So, here’s what I’ve learned so far about Fresh Egg and its people:
The culture at Fresh Egg is open and friendly. You would expect this from a digitally-focused employer but it isn’t always the case. The warm welcome offered by everyone makes joining the company and hitting the ground running easier for new starters. It’s also a very down-to-earth culture, refreshingly lacking in ego.

One of the main differences at Fresh Egg is how rigorous the discovery process is. Most agencies have a planning process and carry out audits etc., but, at Fresh Egg, the process feels much more comprehensive, logical and complete. (You can find out a bit more about our discovery process here.)
I was fortunate to join two accounts during their discovery phases, so I’ve witnessed first-hand how it works. The outputs are truly impressive, more akin to a management or strategic consultancy than a digital agency. This is a real point of difference in the market, and it gives us confidence that the work we subsequently do for clients is based on meaningful insight from the start. Which leads me to…
It’s a cliché to say so, but the pace of change in digital is relentless. There’s a strong commitment at Fresh Egg to keeping on top of and leading that change. Relevant articles, data, tools, widgets, and new developments are shared on our Wiki, in weekly agency meetings and in client-focused team huddles.
The enthusiasm on show in client meetings and internal catch-ups is clearly evident and infectious. People are passionate about their areas of specialism and readily share their enthusiasm and knowledge with others.
There’s a lively atmosphere of discussion and sharing, which not only helps our customers, but makes being at work an enjoyable experience.
Agencies can get themselves into a terrible muddle by trying to over-complicate processes and ways of working. They can over-intellectualise what they do and end up losing sight of what we’re here for, which is to help our customers meet their commercial objectives.
I find things to be simpler, more straightforward and more commercially-focused at Fresh Egg. It’s easier to get the job done without disappearing down the rabbit-hole that some agencies unwittingly fall into.
