1. Sortlist+: why we improved our features and plans?
Sortlist’s vision is to create a platform that helps clients and agencies to connect, collaborate, and succeed, without any limitations or barriers. This vision is centered on providing value, control, and opportunity for all parties involved, and building strong, lasting partnerships that drive business growth and success.
As the marketing industry becomes increasingly specialized, businesses are looking for more specific expertise and services to meet their needs. We have noticed that our pricing model was geared towards "generalists" with memberships for unlimited consumption, which does not adequately address this trend.
This is why we have launched a new and improved Sortlist platform. We are introducing a new pricing model that enables you to position your firm on niche services and only pays for results. This allows you to take the time to understand your client's needs and provide solutions that truly meet those specific needs.
We have aligned our pricing more closely with the value that our agencies receive and ensure you are only paying for what you actually need and want.
2. Main benefits of Sortlist+
The new value-based pricing allows for greater flexibility and adaptability. This can be particularly beneficial in today's rapidly changing business environment, where agencies need to be able to respond to new opportunities and challenges. With Sortlist+ you will be able to adjust your investment based on your needs and priorities and only pay for the value that you receive.
Also, this new model helps us drive innovation and growth by focusing on the value that we deliver to you. This helps to foster a culture of continuous improvement, and drive long-term success.
3. What main differences you will experience with Sortlist+?
Greater flexibility and control: you will be able to adjust your investment based on your needs and priorities. In contrast to the legacy plan, which has fixed pricing structures, with the new model, you can be confident that you are paying only for what you actually get by setting up your maximum marketing budget.
Focus on what matters and take advantage of visibility & opportunities: By not being limited to certain services or areas, you can explore new possibilities and test out different development strategies. This can be particularly beneficial for all types of providers from small to medium-large agencies or/even agencies working with clients remotely, who offer niche services or have extra resources to allocate to specific market segments.
The benefits outlined will aid in the expansion and evolution of your business and establish a solid base for continued prosperity in the future.

This vision is centered on three key goals:
Help clients meet the best partner without any limitations.

Build new great business stories without any friction. Sortlist wants to help its clients and agencies to build successful, long-term relationships that lead to new business opportunities and growth.
