Second creative agency appointment in six months…we should work better as an industry to protect eachother from clients like these.
There’s something about Telco clients like these every agency should be afraid of. Vodafone and Circles Life.
As @burnt said there is job to do by Procurement companies to keep these clients from hurting agencies. To the agency who.are not Hero…you dodged a bullet. To Hero….best of luck.
Good luck Hero!
Only advice I could give you is …. get paid upfront!
Don’t do it H
This client is amazing.
Their tech stack is revolutionary and they are going to transform the landscape of Australian telco through a “Genzennial at the core” strategy.
This will be a wonderful brand and experience for both Hero and young Australians.
Literally the worst client I have ever worked on, and that is saying something.
Nice bit of astroturfing. But Perhaps we should just wait 6 months and review the progress. Hopefully the experience will be good for all. Client reputation aside the market for digital telcos is very small and promiscuous.
