As millions of workers across the country grapple with their new reality of working from home because of the pandemic, it can be tough to establish boundaries between your professional and personal life. While a traditional office environment has its drawbacks — like a potentially long commute and office politics — but it also gives employees predictability. Without the regular 9-to-5 office structure to rely on, some workers are struggling to be as productive as they were before — especially in the face of issues like burnout and general distraction. Below, we’ve put together some tips to help you stay focused and productive while working from home. Keep reading to learn how to create balance and positivity in a remote work environment.  Tip #1: Start the Day off Right Even if you don’t consider yourself a morning person, you can still use the morning to create a routine for yourself […]

Many of us have developed a different outlook on personal hygiene, interacting with people in public, and how we react to the potential spreading of germs. And while some have returned to office environments, that transition has been anything but going back to business as usual. From social distancing measures being taken regarding desk layouts and sharing common areas, to temperature check policies, the current in-office environment is a far cry from what it used to be.  And then there’s those of us who are working remotely due to the flexibility of our industry. For individuals who didn’t use to work remotely on a daily basis, this has been one of the biggest changes the pandemic has brought on. While some have flourished in the work-from-home environment, others have found it difficult to adapt—from staying connected to their team to keeping their own focus and motivation on track—and are looking […]

When it comes to successful client-agency relationships, getting things started on the right foot is vital. But during our weekly Facebook Live sessions in Remote Agency Society, lots of our members tell me the same thing: that they’re afraid they’re going to sound too “salesy” during a phone consultation with a prospective agency client. And sounding like a sleazy car salesperson is definitely not the way to start successful client-agency relationships! As digital agency owners and marketing consultants, we need to pitch prospective clients – otherwise we would go out of business! But you should never sound “salesy” – because you’re coming from a consultative approach of genuinely caring. Discover how you should approach your next phone call with a prospective client below.

Do you have a digital agency coach for your business? Even though I founded Mod Girl Marketing nearly a decade ago, I still talk to my mentors and coaches often. Just because someone is a digital marketing “expert” or “coach” doesn’t mean they don’t need coaching themselves – we can all gain value from an outside perspective giving us advice and sharing how they approached a particular challenge you’re now facing. We often become so close to our work that we overlook obvious mistakes or missed opportunities. And since there’s so much involved when it comes to running a business, everyone can value from having a digital agency coach. That’s why I host weekly Facebook Lives with our Remote Agency Society members. Having access to a digital agency coach – along with 24/7 access to a community of fellow remote agency owners – is so valuable when it comes to scaling […]

On May 25, 2018 GDPR went into full effect – so what exactly does that mean for digital agencies? For starters, it means you are responsible for safeguarding the data of your audience, from potential leads who sign-up to get notified when you publish a new blog to your customers. As a digital agency owner, it’s important for you to make sure you’re fully compliant with all of the latest privacy and security requirements from around the world. The internet allows us to interact with anyone, but that means we have the responsibility to stay up-to-date with the compliance requirements beyond just our own country. Discover what GDPR means for digital agencies in this snippet of a live training video I hosted with compliance expert John “The Agile Monk” Fisher below. What GDPR Means for Digital Agencies The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) officially went into effect on Friday, May […]

One of my biggest passions is helping fellow marketing entrepreneurs and remote agency owners achieve their growth goals. That’s why I founded our free Facebook group, Mod Agency Insiders, a little over a year ago. We’ve since grown to 2,500+ members from around the world, sharing ideas, exchanging feedback, and helping one another grow. In addition to sharing daily posts aimed at helping you grow your remote agency, I’ve hosted several Facebook Lives inside Mod Agency Insiders, including free trainings and live interviews with industry experts. (You can check out snippets of two of my previous interviews on my blog: I discussed client onboarding with Karl Sakas and went over agency growth tips with Jason Swenk.) Now, I’m excited to announce my first-ever Facebook Live “Ask Me Anything” (AMA)! This is your opportunity to put me in the hot seat, and it’s available exclusively to members of our free Facebook group. Request […]
