GENERAL DESCRIPTION OF ADSTRUMENT

The database consists of agencies creating their own company profiles through Adstrument.com. Agencies can create a profile free of charge, but will be required to update the profile consistently and truthfully.
The database is used by search consultants that work with the data in a confidential environment when searching for an agency on behalf of a client. The data collected in the database will be used to present the agencies to potential clients and to create long- and shortlists for the selection process. Agencies that are selected for a shortlist will most probably be contacted and asked to supply more information and to participate in some form of pitch process.
Show reels uploaded on Adstrument.com will be displayed on the website adstrument.com and some show reels will be displayed in the newsletter A Taste of Adstrument.
