Ranking and the Top 10
What is Ranking?
Your ranking is based on your primary industry, which you can set in your Work Settings.
You can see your ranking progress on your stats page.
Where you rank is worked out using a complex algorithm. It is based on your profile, the interactions you have with the site, reviews from clients and employers, award wins and also how the other members and companies in the Creativepool community appreciate your work.
You are highly encouraged to keep your profile updated and relevant. Your Interactions score is based upon the apportioned number of your likes, pools, followers and connections.
Getting Spotlighted (featured on the Creativepool homepage) is a great way for you to boost your overall ranking score.
The Creativepool Annual plays an important part in where you appear on the list. Being shortlisted, and ultimately being an Annual winner, has a big influence on your ranking.
Points for Award wins can have a significant impact on your ability to appear in the Top 10. Award wins need to be added when you upload a project. Where possible, award wins should be chosen from the drop down menu.
Reviews are the most important ranking feature that we use when deciding where you turn up for search in particular searches. You should request reviews from your clients when you upload your projects.
What is the Top 10?
The Top 10 represents the Top 10 ranked companies for their chosen field of expertise. Being in the Top 10 means you are recognised for being the best in class in your chosen field of expertise.
What are Ranking and the Top 10 good for?
A higher ranking will mean that you will turn up higher in searches made by prospective clients in the Creative Services Directory. Being included in the Top 10 means that your company is ranked as being in the Top 10 of all companies on Creativepool for your industry. You will now have the coveted Top 10 badge on your profile, making it easier for you to be noticed by potential clients and talent. It helps in your search ranking and, being at the top of your field, you may also be offered exclusive content, marketing and events opportunities from the Creativepool team.
