Nail down the challenges you need to overcome

Does it feel as though your business is taking one step forward then two giant steps back? When you are operating in a market in constant competition for clients it’s important to set yourself apart. I encourage you to take some time to narrow down where you feel your business is lacking. Is your business model truly working for you?

The #1 thing I see in floundering businesses is the lack of a target audience. If you haven’t narrowed down a niche, you will constantly be competing with thousands of other digital marketing agencies. Listen to this episode as we cover many other challenges that could be hindering your business’s growth and how to tighten up your business model.

A passion and vision for your business can accelerate its growth

The goal for most people when starting their own business is to make money. Obviously, you want to make an income and provide for yourself and your family. But it’s also important to have a clear vision, a ‘why’ behind what you’re doing. I was driven to have the time and freedom to do what I am passionate about, which is to help 100 digital marketing agencies scale their business to seven figures a year.  If you’re not passionate about your field, narrow it down until you find that special niche that drives you. Listen to this episode as we talk in-depth about having a vision for your agency and your future.

How to make the “Rule of Ones” work for your Digital Marketing Agency

The rule of ones is pretty simple, and here’s how we follow it:

  1. We’ve already touched on this, but you want to settle on one target market, which is your specific niche.
  2. You want one focused lead generation strategy—this is the process of landing and retaining clients.
  3. Lastly, you want one conversion mechanism or core service offering. You want to start out with one package, subscription, etc. and don’t diverge from that.

Listen to the rest of this episode as we dive into what each of these core strategies means for your business and how they’ll build your company to a seven-figure agency in ONE year.

Simple business growth strategies that will highlight your expertise and keep the momentum going

Something that makes you stand out in an over-crowded market is proving that you are an expert in your industry. You want clients to see your expertise and reach out to you, positioned and interested in the service you have to offer. Show them your value with the content you offer on your website. Some simple and effective means of demonstrating this is offering marketing guides, video-based training, and customer testimonials. In the remainder of this episode, I lay out eight different resources you can offer prospective clients—for free—that I’m sure will land them in your client list and grow your business.
