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. How to Start All Client-Agency Relationships Hint: It doesn’t start with an annoying sales pitch! Watch the video below to discover the 1 thing all client-agency relationships need […]

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 […]

Today I want to talk about something that every business owner finds precious, yet oftentimes scarce: our time. More specifically, time management for entrepreneurs. The question is: are you working hard or hardly working? It’s a common joke – but it’s something we as marketing entrepreneurs do need to consider. Just because you’re working hard 16 hours a day does not mean you’re doing the RIGHT work. I recently took a cruise to Alaska and Canada (with a stop in Seattle on the way), and while there had limited internet access – meaning I really had to manage my time effectively! Keep reading to learn more about the strategies I’ve learned when it comes to time management for entrepreneurs. And if you want even more tips like this, make sure to join my new, free Growth Talk series, where I send an email every Tuesday with valuable insights and tips that […]

When it comes to Google AdWords™, you have lots of options to customize your promotions to reach your specific target market and attract more agency clients.

That’s why I was excited to have paid advertising expert Charles Kirkland join me for a Facebook Live training and Q&A video, available exclusively to members of Mod Agency Insiders.

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 […]
