Agency Access Acquires Workbook Creative's Yodelist



The Creative Industry Database Company, Agency Access acquires Workbook Creative’s Yodelist database to offer visual artists the strongest, most robust network of client data and premier customer support.

NEW YORK — Agency Access announces the acquisition of Yodelist in a strategic move to position itself as the top Creative Industry Directory company for professional photographers, illustrators, directors, production individuals, artists representatives, and stock agencies. Yodelist members now have access to the largest and most comprehensive creative directory available in the commercial advertising and editorial industries. In addition to the acquisition, Agency Access has formed a partnership with the parent company of Yodelist, The Workbook, offering all members under this umbrella special pricing and access.

“Combining these companies felt natural and I have the utmost respect for Bill Daniels and Yodelist,” remarks Keith Gentile, president, and CEO of Agency Access. “Our motivation has always been to supply our members with the data and tools they rely on to grow their businesses. Combining forces now gives both Agency Access and Yodelist members the best of both worlds. My team and I are excited to work hard to bring these companies together for the benefit of all our customers.”

Yodelist members will immediately get access to the Agency Access next-generation platform including their Directory of 95,000+ contacts, Smart List Builder, and Concierge Services. The Agency Access research and customer support teams update hundreds of company listings and contact profiles daily and offer real-time assistance through its online chat service during normal business hours. This acquisition now gives former Yodelist members the keys to the Agency Access universe.

“Making this a smooth transition for Yodelist subscribers is my top priority,” says Gentile. The Yodelist website will come down on November 1st; leading up to this date, the Agency Access support team will be offering one-on-one demos to educate and help Yodelist members migrate over to the Agency Access platform. Kayla Riveros, support representative at Yodelist will also remain on, making sure she is there to assist members through this transition.

Along with the acquisition of Yodelist, Agency Access is announcing a new partnership with Workbook Creative. Moving forward, all brands under Workbook Creative (Workbook, AtEdge, Directory of Illustration, Medical Illustration & Animation Dripbook, etc.) will be using the Agency Access database for its client distribution lists. All Workbook Creative members will also receive an exclusive lifetime discount on the Agency Access platform.

The Workbook’s owner Bill Daniels says this is a great opportunity for our members to collaborate with all Agency Access has to offer, “I have full confidence in the quality of its data and think that our Workbook family will be extremely satisfied with the services and support that an Agency Access subscription offers its members.

Agency Access president and CEO Keith Gentile also goes on to say that this acquisition and partnership helps strengthen his company’s overall ethos of helping creative talent succeed, “With the ever-changing landscape of the creative industry, the forms of self-promotion and client databases, things have been moving at such a rapid pace… we are thrilled to partner with The Workbook’s owner Bill Daniels and the team at Yodelist to provide talented, creative image makers with the means to connect with and get hired by thousands of art buyers, producers, creative directors, and design directors at corporations, ad agencies, publishers, in-house creative studios... The list goes on!”
