Notes: Dollars in millions. Indie networks see the world as local with advertisers best served by local, entrepreneurial agencies. The most common model of operation is a network run by dues-supported secretariat that develops services to aid members. Dues range from $1,500 to $19,000 in this group. Agencies are granted exclusivity for their respective countries. *ComVort grants exclusivity by city; it also is a lower-cost variant of this group. Network ownership often is held by agencies; Interpartners, IN and Worldwide Partners have such a model. Indie networks in 2006 had worldwide revenue of $3.05 billion, up 16.2%, and U.S. revenue of $1.51 billion, up 7.8%. See profiles of these networks in the Agency Profiles Yearbook, a free PDF download found in the DataCenter at adage.com.
