Work faster with agency partners

Agencies are extensions of your team. Work together in a Slack channel, just like you do with your internal team

Save time by working in one place

For marketing teams, the shift to remote work makes it harder to closely collaborate with agency partners. Eliminate back and forth and bring your teams together by sharing a channel with your agency of record.[footnote reference=”” note=”Claims and figures based on specific teams using Slack Connect at their companies. Results may vary at your organization.” /]

Marketing teams use Slack Connect to:

  • Discuss important information and changing priorities 
  • Collaborate on campaigns by providing feedback in one place
  • Share ideas and brainstorm concepts for new campaigns [stat_row stat_1="50% | Decrease in turnaround time for reviews and approvals" stat_2="80% | Decrease in emails with an agency" stat_3="3x | Faster response for a customer testimonial request"/]

A channel thats shared with an agency partner looks and feels like a channel you use with your internal team. People from up to 20 different companies can join, so everyone can stay aligned and drive results in one shared space

2. Send the invite

Follow the prompt to share the channel outside your workspace. Send your partner an email invite right from Slack, or copy the link provided and email the invite directly.

3. Wait for your agency partner to accept

Pour yourself a cup of tea. Once your agency partner clicks the link, they’ll be taken back to Slack, where they can accept the invite and set up the channel on their end.

4. Let your admin approve

Depending on your settings, the invitation will be sent to an admin on both teams for approval. Admins can manage channel invitations by clicking on their workspace name > Administration > Manage shared channels.
