Marketing agencies are all about growth – it’s the name of the game. We devote days, weeks, months and years to uplifting our clients and watching their businesses become everything they want them to be.
We’ve got all the skills, us marketing agencies, to turn an unknown brand into an unforgettable one. But how much time and effort do we actually put into our own business, to watch it thrive and attract future business? For some, it’s simply not enough, and that’s probably why you’re here.
So, as a premier white label digital marketing agency, we’ve taken it upon ourselves to outline how you can become the next powerhouse of the marketing game. With any luck, when your list of prospective clients becomes too long, we hope to partner with you in the future.
The following tips will apply to agencies of varying age and expertise. Pick and choose those that apply to you and let us know when you start to reap the rewards!
Develop Your Niche
This one’s for all those agencies in their infancy, determined to blaze a trail into their city’s marketing community.
As you set out, it will be helpful to stick to clients from a couple of industries that you know best. This will likely be determined by the previous experience that your team has, as they will know what audiences enjoy and how these businesses measure success. If your team has many young professionals with a history in hospitality, they may be best suited to clients with restaurants, cafes and event management. Perhaps your executive team has a background in construction or travel? Every industry needs some kind of marketing, so build on what you bring to the table.
Once your niche is decided, you’ll be able to highlight this across your website, branding, social media and auxiliary documents. Clients are more likely to trust an agency who specialise in their industry, over one that dabbles with multiple niches.
Be Your Own Client
Sure, you might have previous experience outside marketing, but you’re in the game now and nothing worth doing was ever done half-hearted.
If you’re passionate about growing your business, you should treat it with the respect it deserves. That means treating it as you would one of your clients. You’ve got all the skills, after all, it would be a waste not to use them on yourself.
Go the whole hog!
- Build a social media presence with consistent and quality posting.
- Showcase your best branding and perfect your logo, tagline, and web design.
- Optimise your website for search engines and pride yourself on making Google’s top results page.
- Write blogs! An agency that shares its top tips is one to be trusted.
Nurture Existing Client Relationships
Stocking your team with quality account managers could be one of the best investments your agency can make. It’s one thing getting clients to sign on and it’s another to deliver your chosen set of marketing tools. But it could all come crashing down if organisation is lacking – this is the benefit of a dedicated account manager. They offer a single source of truth who clients can rely on to deliver plans and results at the touch of a button.
Agency Stack takes this tip seriously as a white label digital marketing agency, we make sure our clients’ customers are in safe hands because we value everyone’s time and resources.
This allows us to form marketing partnerships with other agencies over the long-term, growing both our and their businesses in tandem.
Diversify and Learn New Skills
As your agency grows and your clients begin to scale with you, it could be useful to expand your offering to satisfy more of your clients’ needs.
Eventually, as you add experts in SEO, copy, web development, design, account management, and PPC, your clients will rely on you as a one-stop shop for all their marketing needs. Now that is the name of the game!
It’s okay to begin with just a selection of these skills, being sure not to overreach. But over time, you’ll find more clients are requesting skills outside your comfort zone – don’t be scared, lean into the opportunity!
