Hey there, fellow digital marketing agency owners! In today’s video, I’m diving into something crucial for your agency’s growth: EOS, the Entrepreneur Operating System, and more specifically, the power of scorecards and key metrics. If you’re aiming for substantial growth and scaling up your agency, this is a must-watch.
So, here’s the deal: as you expand, you become a master at landing clients and delivering results.

That’s where EOS comes in. It’s a system that has the potential to transform your agency, and today, I’m focused on a crucial part of it: the data component, aka the scorecard.

The Importance of Scorecards
Imagine this: You’re on a deserted island, completely disconnected from your business. If your leadership team could provide you with just a handful of key data points that show whether your agency is on the right track, what would those be? That’s the essence of the scorecard. It’s a way to keep everyone aligned and moving forward in the same direction.
Now, let’s break it down by department: marketing, sales, account management, and operations. In marketing, your scorecard might include metrics like new opt-ins, scheduled appointments, average cost per lead, and cost to acquire a customer. In sales, you’re looking at strategy sessions, new clients closed, closing ratio, and monthly recurring revenue. And the same goes for account management, where you track churn, retention rates, and client engagement.
These metrics aren’t just numbers; they’re your agency’s vital signs. With a well-maintained scorecard, you’ll always know if you’re hitting your targets or veering off course. It’s the tool that keeps your leadership team focused and accountable. And don’t worry about the format – whether it’s a simple Google Sheet or a dedicated tool, what matters is that it works for you.
Remember, this data isn’t just for your eyes. Your leadership team should update the scorecard weekly before your level 10 meeting – a structured meeting where your team reports and discusses these metrics. This keeps everyone on track and ensures the business is moving in the right direction.
