You need to know how to get your first clients. You know how to go to have success with those clients because I know a lot of people. They like want to start their own agency, but their biggest fear .
This is me a couple years ago is why I want to get clients. But what if I have no idea how to help them how to run ads for them how to get leads or success or any of that stuff.
How to really build a digital marketing agency?
So, I want to cover that for you all today get those first couple and honestly, you can run your own market agency as a one-man show and take in a ten thousand dollars per month Fairly easy.
It really is not that hard. That’s what I went through and did but now I’ve kind of merged to the fact where I am Just you know I’m trying to go through and specialize only in sales and market.
We’re going to talk about that here as well, okay, so Awesome guys.
Let’s jump into this so the first point.
What you need to do first is go through and get experience with Facebook advertising with marketing with starting your own agency.
Whether it’s SEO Facebook Ads Google Ads whatever it is and so Number one key point number one kind of contradicts number two which I’ll tell you about here It is a little bit, but you need experience, so it doesn’t matter.
What clients you’re going to go through and grab could be chiropractors, dentists, real estate agents, gym owners, restaurants anything you just need to go through and get familiar with the whole Facebook advertising marketing process right now when I first got started This is me back when I was super naive with all this stuff.
Whatever the timeframe is and say hey look you know I’ve been really studying Facebook advertising.
It’s really hot right now, there’s so many successful case studies out there and I want to go through and help you with your restaurant with your gym with your you know real estate agency.
Whatever it is and help you go through and market that business Okay, so you go through and you say hey?
You don’t even have to pay me Okay After the two-week trial or before we trial whatever you’re doing you can say then we can go through and we can talk about What the right amount to pay me is?
Clients Say, “Let Me Think About It.” And You Say, “..."
And we kind of move forward from there, okay, so we’ll just like we’ll use your Facebook advertising money Okay So they set aside a budget of 200 400 500 whatever the number is and you go use that money to gain that skill set Because honestly guys I’ve been through a lot of Facebook advertising Courses and all that stuff especially when I first got started but honestly at the other day it all comes down to just getting that experience and going through and Using the ads manager in Facebook or Google or any of that stuff And you will learn way quicker way more by actually going through and gaining that experience okay, so anyway, that’s number one and the best way to go through and get clients you guys have probably seen this on some other trainings of Mine or some other people is just going through and posting on Facebook hey, I’ve been studying Facebook ads where I’ve been studying you know at Google Ads or whatever you’re like been focusing on and I’m looking for some people to go through and help them out.
Struggling to Start a Digital Marketing Agency in 2019? Here’s a Online Business on what to do, step by step:
- Hey, what's up everyone? Adam LaRoche here from Viewership.
We have Neil Patel here for Q&A Thursdays where basically we gothrough all of your comments, we find the most relevant ones, and I'm gonna ask them to Neiland really pick his brain, and get all the good stuffthat you want to hear from him.
- So, well first off, thankyou for leaving comments.
The more comments youguys leave on my videos, we're gonna end up using them, and then make sure we answerthem in future videos.
We're going to be doing a Q&Aeach and every single week, going after the most-askedquestions in marketing.
So the ones that get up-voted the most, those are the ones thatwe're gonna answer.
So if you see a comment, and you like it, up-vote it if you want the answer to it.
Or, if you have your own question, make sure you leave acomment with your question, and we may consider it forour next week's Q&A video.
- Leave that right there below.
So this one's from Boost ORM: "Hi Neil, I want tostart my own SEO agency.
"I have some clients alsoright now, but I'm not sure "I will get more clients in the future.
"Please tell me what I can do.
" - All right, so, here's what I would do.
And I was in this position.
When I first started an SEO agency, and people, nowadays, "Oh,Neil, you're well-known.
"It's so easy for you.
" But when I was startingout, I was a little kid.
16 years old, and when you're 16, who wants to give money to a 16-year-old? Two, I didn't have money.
Three, I didn't have a college degree.
Four, I didn't have any experience.
It was really tough.
And I could even give youa number five, or six, or whatever we're on.
The next one would be,I would go to school from 8 a.
to roughly 2o'clock in the afternoon.
So customers would be like,"Wait, you can only work "on my account for two,three hours a day?" I'm like, "No, no, I'll worknights and weekends as well.
" And I still made an SEO agency work.
When I was a little kid I got well into the six figures per month,and this was in high school.
And I know at 16, I cappedout at around $20,000 a month.
And then I grew from there.
And I'm not trying tobrag, I'm just trying to prove a point that if I could do it when I was 16, anyone can do it.
- That's the first thingsomeone needs to know.
If you want to anagency, and you guys want to go and createsomething, don't be afraid.
- Just believe in yourself.
- Exactly, just believe in yourself.
The second thing is, theway I used to get clients, and this still works today, I would go find outwho's doing a ton of ads on Google AdWords, and back in the day there weren't tools like there are now, but if you go to SEMrush, andyou put in the company URL, it will even tell you how much money they're spending each month.
That'll give you idea of howmuch money a company has.
Because if they spend $500,000a month or $1 million, or $200,000, there's a good chance they could pay you for SEO.
You don't want to goafter the ones who spend a half a million or a million a month because those guys are big organizations.
It's gonna be too hardto find the right people to go out there and sell.
You want to go after theones who are spending 20, 30 grand a month.
Hit up the founder, and shoot an email that goes something like this, right? Now that you've figuredout who to go after, the third step wouldbe you create an email and you send it off to them.
And it could be something like, "Hey John, I noticed that you're "spending a lot on Google AdWords, "what if I can end up getting you "a similar amount of traffic "from the same key words without "spending money on paid ads? "Would that interest you?" Yeah, a lot of CEOs will ignore you, but I send you that and you'respending 30 grand a month, what would you say? - Done.
- Or at least you'll get on the phone.
You may not hire, but you'llget on the phone with me.
- Well, I think that's the thing, is most people think youhave to focus on inbound, and no one's doing the outreach.
No one's doing the outbound.
- No, they're all lazy.
And it's easier to get them from outbound than inbound because theproblem with inbound is, like we generate right now around 5,000 consulting leads a month.
Almost 90-somethingpercent are not qualified.
- And that's the problem youend up with with inbound.
Outbound you can have 100% qualify because you're reaching out to the people that you know that can pay you.
Another strategy that Ilove using is Crunchbase.
So I go on Crunchbase.
They list out all the companiesthat are recently funded, their valuations, howmuch money they raise.
When these companiesraise $4 or $5 million, and you hit them upand their investors up, you always want to hit up their investors because if you invested in a company and someone emailed you saying like, "Hey, this company youinvested in is screwing up.
" What are you gonna do? - Uhhhh.
- Yeah, you want that RIO, right? So I would find all thecompanies that recently raised money, and I would email them.
I did this when I was a kid to Michael Moritz of Sequoia Capital.
And one of the companies he invested in.
And I emailed both of them and I'm like, "Hey, I know you guys are busy, "but this company is screwing up, "and you guys aren't gonna do well.
"And here's what's wrong and here's why "you're not gonna succeedwhen it comes to SEO "and getting Google traffic anddominated and grow as fast.
" Investors never wanna hear that.
- And you know they're gonnaforward the email over.
I would email themseparately, not together.
What ended up happening was, these guys would get an email from their board of directors and they would be like, "Oh, go figure this out.
" The investor's not gonnaspend any time or energy solving the problem, butthey're gonna be like, "Oh, go check this out.
" And when they tell the personwho's running that company.
You know they're gonna go check you out.
And I got a lot of deals that way because those guys were like, "Whoa, whoa, you justbroke down in a six-page "Word document ofeverything that was wrong.
" It was a fancy PDF.
I didn't hold things back,I just gave it all to them.
If you have $5 million, would you try and learnthings on your own, or would you just pay theperson who just outlined everything for you? - Just pay it.
- Exactly, especially ifit's not that expensive.
You want to charge 5grand a month for someone who raised $50 million or $5 million? They don't care, it'sa drop in the bucket.
And the genius part about this is you didn't go for the marketing director, or even the CEO of the company, you went to the people whowere funding those people.
- That's right.
- So it's like, (laughs)just guaranteed money, right? - That's right.
And if youdo well for those investors, they're gonna tell alltheir portfolio companies "Hey, this guy did thisfor one of my investments.
"You should hire himfor your business, too.
" And that's a great way to get clients.
- All right, so there we have it.
That is how to start anSEO agency, like Neil said.

How to Start a Digital Marketing Agency in 2019 [SMMA]
Welcome YouTube to another video in thisvideo what we're gonna be talking about is I'm looking at the list chip boomfrom the comments and Instagram stuff like I brought it over here so I keeplooking back just think like literally like right here right yeah okay you guysthe truth about running an agency that's a number one question over the last twoto three days and I was pulling my Instagram and if you even followed me onInstagram what do you do and go click the links in the comments and form afollow me on Instagram these videos come out like once in awhile those videos come only daily so one of the things that you know a lot ofpeople want to know from what if you follow me for the Tai Lopez program orplenty of the other programs I'm involved in they teach about a agencymodel is the truth about it you know some people struggle with it some peoplehave amazing success with it and it really depends on you know your mindsetthat's what it comes down to that's a whole other video but what my you knowwhat my core unquote opinion is and the truth about running an agency for meit's I'm not biased or I don't even though my biggest company is the agencythat I run however the one thing you gotta look at from a businessperspective is like what is the easiest business model that you as a brand newentrepreneur can get yourself into you know you're currently working a job yourcurrent school whatever it is at the end of the day you have to figure out whatis the number one thing that you can do what is the number one thing that youhave access to then there's not gonna cost you a lot of money and that isbusinesses that are in your neighborhood that you you know you communicate withyou deal with on a weekly daily basis and you could literally give them aservice to take them online because a lot of times business in today's day andage is struggling because they don't know how to market to get new clientsnew customers so you know the truth about it now at the end of the day nomatter what business you look at whether you're looking at agency Shopify Amazonbrick-and-mortar corporation style business is like there's so manydifferent styles of business that you can build is you know what is it likethey're all gonna take work ok there's nothing that's out there I'm not gonnatell you that you know you can make you know million dollar your business andit's not going to take work everything is going to take or to where I am todayis taking me eight years to get to this point in my life ok like literallyconsistent day over day month over month week over week year over yearyou know it's literally got take me eight years to get to this point and thenumber one mistake that most people think is that they can wake up one dayand the next day they can literally be in a ten thousand dollar month businesscan you do that in 30 days yes if you don't succeed esq 90s yes but you haveto work like that's what it comes down to like you know I'm not here on thisYouTube channel and I don't want to attract the type of audience where it'slike you know you think you're gonna make money quick you're gonna to getrich quick scheme or some kind of shit like that because that's not the kind ofstuff that I teach at all if you've looked at any of my other videos if youlook at me on social media on any of my other social media I'm very wrongI'm very straight up I'm pretty pretty blatant with those stuff that I say thereason being is because I don't need to sugarcoat the shit that most people aresaying on YouTube okay people are gonna tell you some BS out there and they'regonna tell you that you can do it really easily but no it's going to take workyou have to get off your ass and get to work for you to get anything if you doif you are not willing to do that you're not gonna get the results okay so thetruth behind an agency in my opinion it is the easiest business to start intoday's day and age in an online so it doesn't have to be paid traffic likewhat I dunno I'm business builder you can do social media you can do videoagencies you can do pay traffic agencies you can do SEO agencies there's so manydifferent digital agencies that you could start today and it literally allit takes is sweat equity like when I first started I got my first couple ofclients I don't run any ads to get me flat I literally just got off my asswent down to the local split ball and I started just knocking and talking tobusinesses and that's literally all I did today you can do that using coldemail you can do that using LinkedIn there's plenty of different things thatyou can use to get those results I'm like this that's the kind of stuff thatyou know I've been fortunate enough to teach insight I'll open this program andfortune up to teach inside my programs and a few other programs that I'minvolved in but stop thinking that it's something that you can make doesn'tmatter you know like literally this doesn't matter maybe one day I'll do avideo on like you know breaking down the grade of like agency where Shopifyversus Amazon versus you know brick-and-mortar and like and kind ofshowing you guys on the water like a whiteboard behind me or something a lotwhere it's like what is the least amount of resources you need to get into abusiness and it's an agency you literallyyou need is like a laptop or even an iPad like if you have one of these iPadsthat's all you need and you can get yourself going so stop it like listeningto people that are gonna tell you that it's going to be you know all airy-fairyand shit like just stop like stop following this people you're you'refucking up your mindset by doing that because you know all people are tellingyou they're lying to you to try and get you to follow them without actuallytelling you the water to involve it's going to get easier a hundred percent itgets easy all you need is one client you believe in yourself you get one plantyou repeat that process rinse and repeat that process if you canget one you can get ten if you can get ten you can get 100 so just keep doingwhat it takes to get done and if you need help subscribe to this YouTubechannel go follow me on Instagram because or if you really want to I don'treally give a shit if you do or don't click the link in the bio somewherebecause there's gonna be a link to a course and I teach them how to build avery profitable agency and I teach and I show you all kinds of agencies one wordsite you know where I built the first half of my life in the agency worldwhereas travelling the world and doing clients just like more of like anoutsourced agency versus now I have a full team we've got eleven people thatwork for us across the world and you know how to even build it like an actuallegit structured agency and that's the dinner they you know I don't care if youbuy it or you don't if you do and you really want to know how to build a realagency going in like that's literally my call to action for you like that's itlike I don't really care um other than that I hope you guys enjoyed this videodo me a favor and give this video a thumbs up because if you if you reallygot value out of this video and you understand the truth about the agencymodel it's the easiest one you can get into however it's gonna take work likeit's easy to get into but it's gonna take work so that's a literally thetruth of it and like to give if you give this video a thumbs up for me leave us acomment if you want to know more videos about like specifically but what'sworking in the agency we're put in the comments because I'm reading thecomments by team 3
