RAA grabs 16 new accounts since beginning of 2006

Risdall Advertising Agency (RAA) is continuing its success as the 23rd largest independent agency in the country by wrapping up the second quarter of the year with 16 new business wins.

"We build business for clients, so naturally we should build business for ourselves," says John Risdall, chairman of RAA. "Luckily, we are good at both."

The sixteen accounts represent an additional $13,000,000 in capitalized billings, which should bring 2006 billings to over $150 million. RAA provides the following for each client:
  • Advanced Bio-Surfaces (collateral work)
  • Alert Nutrition (branding)
  • Alliance Management (branding, web development)
  • Direct-A Marketing Services Company (branding, web development)
  • Employers Association Peoria (agency of record)
  • Imation (web development)
  • Masters Forum (marketing communications)
  • Minneapolis Heart Institute Foundation (event planning and
    fundraising)
  • Naterra Land (search engine optimization)
  • Opportunity Partners Inc. (business consulting and web
    development)
  • P.B. Loco (web development)
  • NCS Pearson (web development)
  • Rauenhorst Recruiting Company (agency of record, web
    development)
  • Solbrekk IT (marketing planning, web development)
  • Troll Dental (advertising, creative development)
  • U.S. Toy Company (interactive layout design, web development)
  • On top of those additions, two new restaurants, Nicollet Island Inn and Dixie's, have joined Twin Cities Originals (TCO), a client that has been with RAA since 2003.
