So here’s the thing…

It’s quite easy to start an agency. You almost certainly opened your doors with a couple of tame clients in your pocket (brave if you didn’t!). The next few came along by recommendation or just in through the window. You acquired clients because you’re you, you knew and handled them all, you pitched the concept, you helped with the strategy. And, of course, you ran the business.

As you got bigger, things started to change. You couldn’t do it all. You hired more people. You had to ‘manage’ more and be with clients less. But, as you hire more people, you have to keep them busy. So you need to find more clients, even though you’re spreading yourself more thinly. What’s more you need to be selective.

The best way to build your business is to work out what the agency needs. In all honestly, the first thing you really need is probably a dedicated new business person. That’s a big commitment. Yet without somebody doing the hard yards for you, you’ll never find time to do structured new business.

Yes, it’s quite easy to start an agency. The thing is, how do you turn a small one into a medium sized one? Or a medium-sized one into a big one? To do that you need a business development partner that can take your Agency to Brands in the quickest way possible.
