    GOLD! CHECKLIST: How to Start a Digital Marketing Agency & Hit $5K in Less than 90 Days

    Look through this post again because I feel like I've shared a lot about sales (even if you don't know anybody, etc). But in a nutshell, choose a niche, start providing value (solve problems), and reach out to people and *show* them how you can help. Because you found this forum, it means you...

    For sure. Their communication is a great starting point. How fast they reply, do they pay attention (& answer) specific questions you have, etc. Their portfolio is another great window. Can they do what you're hiring them to do? In the end though, I make my standard operating procedures so...

    As long as there's an internet and as long as there's public businesses that want to make money, there will be a need - it will always be a viable concept. 1 - My agency is set up on software that can scale with us indefinitely. The average number of clients in my first 12 months was around...

    This is a free post where I break down my business model but there's absolutely nothing proprietary about it - which is why I mentioned in the very first post that it breaks MJ's Barrier to Entry commandment. Anyone can do it. I'm no different from any of the other schmucks out there promoting...

    I think I've said this in this forum somewhere before, but I'm not comfortable sharing my clients here. I've been burned before by people trying to poach them. It doesn't work. My clients literally tell me. Hope that doesn't sound crass but I will give you pretty much anything else you'd like...

    If you feel that interior designers in Canada have the budget and see the need, then go for it! As for crafting emails, I've never built anything on cold email so I'm not the best person to talk to about that. But I do know it's a crazy numbers game AND you have to lead with an offer that you...

    Just like literally any other business, it all depends on how hard and how smart you work.

    Makes sense! You can always get involved as little or as much as you like. If you enjoy coding, then go for it! But, if you only code, then you will always stay in freelance mode and only make as much as your hourly rate. If you want to scale, then you need to build a team to do the work and...

    I think I understand your question - you're asking about running ads to grow your own agency, correct? If so, I think that's fine. Just be sure to be targeting a group/niche that will respond to those ads (ie - offer them something of value), and watch your ROI.

    Monterrey is bigger and has more infrastructure, like Mexico City, than most of the rest of the country so they might see the need and have the budget more than elsewhere in the country. It doesn't hurt to try. I have a handful of MX clients and they like that we're based in the US and not MX...

    Hiya Mike, First of all, I would avoid a business partner entirely. It's just not necessary. Second, I wouldn't open a branch for somebody else. You can do it all on your own. I mean, unless you basically want to be an employee, but that's not the point of this thread (or this forum for that...

    No worries Aleks - happy to help. You could price a la carte like that but I would offer three different packages - small, medium, and way big. Something like this: €700 | €850 | €1450 a month You need to change the actual numbers but hopefully you see the pattern? Small, a little...

    I guess that depends on the trust level you have with your client. I've had my business for 11 years now. This is just what's worked well for us. With your business, you're free to do whatever feels comfortable. For copy, I would look at Jim Edwards Copywriting Secrets. Haven't read the book...

    In our case, we let each client be in charge of their own hosting. We simply manage it for them. It's their car. We just drive it for them. They have their own hosting/domain accounts, we have access to it. I like SiteGround for hosting. Great tech support. Not sure how to answer this one...

    It's called ALAN. I love it but I wouldn't recommend it for starting out (it's $20K). I would look at something like GoHighLevel first.

    Wow! Great job Lorenzo! Keep getting good results and more business will come. Then you can implement more fastlane methodologies and scale up. As far as pricing, it really depends on the local market. I'm sure in Rome, like everywhere else, has been hit but as long as you're providing more...
