I was talking with two of our spies over the weekend about the impact AgencySpy has inside agencies, specifically on the matter of internal secrets. Both spies were from different prominent agencies that have been the subject of posts here on AgencySpy. The spy who worked for a WPP agency said there had been a meeting during which employees were told not to talk to me, and managers did a lot to assure them that things were indeed OK.
The other spy, from a smaller shop, told me that just a few hours after I posted an article about said company, the CEO had posted an article on the agency’s internal-eyes-only blog, essentially rebuking what had been written. Funny that their PR department hadn’t done the same when I contacted them.
Nonetheless, with your help, AgencySpy’s infamy continues to grow, which we feel pretty darn good about. So keep e-mailing us tips at matt@mediabistro dot com and superspyin@gmail dot com, tweeting/IMing us at AgencySpy and of course using the anonymous tips box. Cheers!
