Your TDA profile is a tool to manage your agency’s reputation and expand your reach. There are numerous opportunities to promote your agency through TDA.
Use your profile to build trust in your agency. Point prospective clients to your TDA profile to see your achievements, thought leadership, and previous clients’ experiences working with you.
With a premium membership, agencies become eligible to pitch for projects posted by the global clients registered on TDA who are looking for an agency.
The best way to stand out is by building a quality agency profile.
First, complete your profile with all the necessary information which will give potential clients a good idea of who you are and what you do. Make sure to go through all of the categories: Main Info, Additional Info, Expertise, Locations and Languages, and Contacts — use the dashboard progress bar to see what information you need to provide.
Then, you should publish case studies about projects you completed for clients in the past. This will give your future clients valuable insight into the projects that you usually do, and what your line of work is.
After your case study is published, you should always verify it by clicking the request review button and sending that link to the client who was the topic of the case study. This will give a lot of credibility to your case studies because they will receive a score. The average of your case study scores will generate your agency score.
In addition to case studies, you can also publish articles about topics in your industry. Try to write something insightful and interesting for potential clients!
After you complete these steps you’ll be set a Recognized by TDA badge for use on your external website and marketing materials.

There is no limit on how many TDA member agencies can pitch, but you must meet our minimum requirements to be eligible for the work.
You should apply to the projects that are most suitable for you.
To maximize your project acquisition rate, it’s usually best to assess the size of the client, their industry, and any other factors which may tell you what kind of an agency would be the best fit for them.
What you write in the first round of pitching is always determined by the project brief.
Some clients prefer to keep things short in the first round, which is why their brief won’t include a lot of details. On the other hand, other clients may provide a lot of information even in the first round, which will allow you to pitch a more detailed solution.
When you get chosen for the second round of pitching, you’ll receive the client’s contact information and some additional information about the project.
At this point, it will be up to you to get all the information that you need in order to make a good, detailed pitch for the second round.
You will be notified by email. You can also check the status of your pitch applications in your dashboard at any time.
If the client chooses you for the second round, that information will be immediately shown in your dashboard under My Pitch Applications. However, if the client hasn’t decided yet, the status on your dashboard will simply say Applied.
Once the project has expired, the text below the project title will change from Ongoing to Finished.
