Every agency owner experiences the tension of working in their business vs working on their business.

You just need to get out of the way and trust your team.

Do you find yourself wanting to try new services but are unsure if you need to hire an employee or just outsource it? Do you need to grow your team to meet the demands of your business but aren't sure which route to take? You are not alone.
Figuring out the best way to scale your agency with the right personnel can be a challenge. If you aren't sure if a new service will take off, you don't want to risk hiring a full or even part-time employee and then have to let them go if it doesn't pan out. You need a good plan on how to scale your team effectively.

We’ve all experienced it. The crazy hiring dilemma of the 2020s. It’s a candidate’s market out there with more job opportunities available than people to meet the demand, or so it seems. High starting pay, signing bonuses, and benefits that you only dreamed of when you were looking for work. So how do you recruit and hire top talent in today’s market?
In this April 2022 webinar, we discussed actionable things you can do to recruit and hire top talent for your agency, without the dog and pony show.
Do you have rockstar employees that you don’t want to lose? Are you worried some of your team is looking elsewhere for work?

It’s an employee’s market right now but employees are looking for something you can actually give them without a lot of extra overhead on your part. Most employees are looking for a sense of meaning in what they do. That doesn’t mean some earth-shattering mission but it does mean the work they do or the parameters of the job they have, fits into a bigger picture of their life as a whole.
In this June 2022 webinar, we discussed ways to keep and engage your top employees so you don’t lose them to someone else.
We’ve talked about several ways to scale your marketing agency in our webinar series. However, there’s one area we haven’t touched on that we think is one of the best ways to grow in both brand exposure and client acquisition.
