Company Description

The Wild is a social experience agency — a new breed of social agency that believes social should be core to the brand experience, not an add on. The Wild combines traditional advertising rigour with new media speed, agility, and creativity – bringing the best from old and new together to provide an engine for modern marketing, with social right at the heart.

Ultimately, The Wild exists to help brands unlock social and thrive in culture. In a fragmented world, we help brands command the attention they deserve and create ideas that cross the digital border and have an impact in the real world.

Along with offering unrivalled services and expertise across strategy, social media management, marketing, advertising and branded content, what makes The Wild stand apart is that it is publisher powered, with access to the network of 132 million followers across the portfolio of Jungle Creations media brands that live cross-platform and across different passion points. This provides unrivalled access to consumer data and insights that help drive strategy for clients.

The Wild partners with some of the most progressive and exciting brands, including the likes of ITV, Major League Baseball, Braun, Panasonic, Wasa and Heinz, with our work recently being recognised in awards for Best Branded Content Series at the Digital Content Marketing Awards and Agency of The Year at The European Media Awards.
