Whether you are a new or seasoned marketing agency owner, a consultant or business coach, you’re already aware that local businesses need help, particularly when it comes to leveraging digital marketing to grow sales.
And they’ll pay you every month to help them, every single month. You just have to know how to find them, how to sell them, how to actually help them and how to keep the referral engine going so you can keep them long term.
Restaurants, salons/medspas, realtors, home improvement contractors, chiropractors, dentists, specialty health practitioners, HVAC, weight loss clinics, attorneys, accounting firms, e-commerce businesses, and more – they all are struggling in a hyper-competitive digital business environment.
I’ll Show You How To Have Potential Agency & Consulting Clients Come To You — Instead Of Having To CHASE Them Cold Like Most “Average” Agencies or Consultants
You’ll discover in Marketing Agency Academy that chasing potential clients is one of the worst things you can do—and puts you into a subservient position where you’re handicapped when it comes to closing deals and potential income.
Instead, imagine waking up in the morning with inquiries from prospects begging you to take their money and have you help them solve their problem! The confidential secrets I reveal in Marketing Agency Academy allow you to attract clients with proven online sales funnels…(that I give you).
You could easily justify the price of the academy alone with just 1 or 2 high-paying clients who will gladly give you money to discover what you know. More on that in a second.
In reality, this was actually three courses in one. Here’s why:
1. I show everything I know about prospecting, attracting, selling and closing new clients, including how to price your services, how to present with little to no resistance and how to get the clients to ask to do business with you, not hte other way around. I guess you can say this section of the course is certainly worth the fee I charge by itself.
2. I cover the OPERATIONS and CLIENT EXECUTION of the agency and consulting business from how to invoice and take payments, how to kickoff and onboard your clients, and MOST importantly, how to get your client results leveraging digital marketing and/or consulting services – I show you how to do it all inside the course.
3. I uncover EVERYTHING I know about scaling and creating a real referral based business. 90% of our clients now come from referrals and that was BY DESIGN, not by accident. You’ll discover the EXACT strategies I’ve used to build an agency referral system that now brings us weekly agency and consulting clients. No stone is left unturned. Some will question my sanity for releasing this information now, and someone advising me can easily make a strong case for me NOT doing this. It will be impossible for you to NOT pick up at least a “short list” of very useable information you can implement right away to generate referrals.
I guarantee you’re going to have your eyes opened to entirely new, different, bigger, and more exciting opportunities. This could trigger a whole re-engineering of your current agency or consulting business…or the blueprint for transition to a new and better business.
