Agencies in each of the three charts shown by discipline are ranked only by returns from that discipline. Interactive marketing means creating advertising and marketing using the Internet and other interactive technologies, and doing marketing-oriented Web development that includes creating content and consumer interfaces. Sales promotion agencies consist of two types, those that provide an array of services but are identified by their strength in the planning sequence, and those that pull most of their revenue from tactical and executional services, such as sweepstakes and games, merchandising, premiums/incentives or fulfillment. Direct marketing includes direct mail, postal and email, data-base development, customer relationship marketing (CRM). Direct marketing uses most media.

This ranking was revised June 25, 2003 to reflect adjusted revenue from Ripple Effects Interactive, Pittsburgh, Pa.
