  • Scaling a Service Business Through Client Memberships, Community, and Transparency
    Maren Hogan, Red Branch Media

    People think it's impossible to scale a service business. After all, the more people you're serving, the more employees you have to hire, the more you have to sell. It's a vicious cycle that keeps most agencies desperately seeking new revenue and new clients and never REALLY scaling the way their software counterparts might. But what if it were possible to use the principles of companies like American Express, Jeep, and yes...HubSpot to scale your service agency? Maren Hogan will describe how at her wits' end, she started looking to the principles of belonging, collaboration and transparency to scale her service agency and start growing a holistic, comprehensive community of her clients and employees.

    Maximize Peace and Profit with a 3-Dimensional Niche
    Phil Lockwood, Distill

    Today's business trends demonstrates the power of focus ("The riches are in the niches" says HubSpot's Dan Tyre), but a true niche isn't just about picking a client industry. To maximize margins—and minimize headaches—the most successful agencies are leveraging the 3Ps in positioning: People (vertical expertise), Process (horizontal expertise), and Platform (systemization/productization). If more than 10% of your agency services are still custom, this blueprint is for you.

  • Yeah, Sometimes Prospecting Sucks...But Enough with the Excuses!
    Josh Curcio, protocol 80, Inc.

    Let's face it, for most of you agency folks, prospecting isn't the most exciting thing you could be doing. But at the same time, you want to grow your agency. As someone who works in the agency and as an agency leader, I've found myself putting prospecting on the back-burner to try and handle "other things" that come up, but it only hurts sales. I'd like to share what's working (and not working) for me when it comes to successful prospecting.
