Hey bowlers, what’s in your mind the main distinction between an ACD and CD? And how best to advocate for yourself as the latter?

Presenting/selling and client relationships. You can have great ideas and great feedback for your team, but to be trusted as a CD, your agency needs to feel like you’re the best person to be the face of the work.

When you’re an ACD the clock starts ticking until you make CD. When you’re a CD the clock starts ticking till when you get fired because the buck stops at CD. ACD can still play the “I’m just an associate” card. But when things go bad the CD has no way out. It’s a responsibility play. Account goes sideways and you tell a client you let the ACD go and they lick their chops and ask who else can we eat?!? But firing a CD seems to appease the savages.

I’ve seen CDs try that but it doesn’t help. He/she is at the wheel driving the account and takes the hit. Can’t blame the passengers. If the teams “screwed” up it should have been caught in creative reviews.....and trust me the teams saved their work and will bring it back to bury a sideways CD.

Not knocking CDs by the way. It is the hardest job in the agency.

ACDs work the most though.

Question about what’s realistic: My boss, vp of marketing, is dead set on working with an agency who can produce multiple videos over the course of several small shoots so that we can iterate on what’s working. From my experience, this would cost a lot more than our budget (80k) and would ultimately be more expensive than one larger shoot with more deliverables. Videos are short, 10s or less and without a real narrative — more just for a sizzle reel kind of thing. Thoughts? Nyc based.

How much would you consider investing on a company that’s ‘high risk’ in the sense that it is a social-media? The goal is to sell in 3-5 years. This has been created in an established market, has increasing site visits by the day and hour… the vision and market need is clear. The hustle of the team is undeniable.

What other questions would you want answered? Is 200k for 20% unrealistic?
