A Competitor Eroded 30% of This Agency Owners Market Share Overnight. Here’s How She Got It Back.

By | Ad Agency, Advertising, Digital Marketing, facebook ads

Elite Property Campaigns (EPC) was just a few months old when a large corporation sought to aggregate the agency in 2017. Its founder, Gia Le, was determined to stay independent. Although the company courting her agency had a larger database that she could use to provide even better campaign targeting for her clients, it would certainly threaten the culture she had built. For no reason would Gia “be held ransom to their branding and values,” she said. So, she turned them away. Six months later, the corporation came to market with a service nearly identical to Gia’s. They copied everything…

The God-View Dashboard: How KlientBoost Grew to $600k in MRRd

The God-View Dashboard: How KlientBoost Grew to $600k in MRR

By | Ad Agency, Digital Marketing

When a digital marketing agency jumps from 20 to 160+ clients, that’s a growth worth celebrating. KlientBoost founder and CEO Johnathan Dane was psyched, but his fixation on retention made him wary of becoming complacent. When the agency reached about 100 clients, there was a virtual revolving door of incoming and outgoing clients. Johnathan knew that if it kept up, growth would stagnate—if not decline. The problem was that conversations with staff about putting systems in place didn’t result in action. There were few training materials, so best practices weren’t being followed. There wasn’t any activity monitoring to catch problems…

Founder Interview: How Flume Digital Marketing Became an Agency That Attracts Clients Like Adidas, Canon, and Cisco

By | Ad Agency, Digital Marketing

Embracing the unconventional came about, in part, due to failures for Jacques Du Bruyn and his partner Ruan Oosthuizen, co-founders of Flume Digital Marketing and PR.

They developed an odd assortment of practices that seem “wrong” such as presenting price before service details, hiring “expensive” staff, and systematically developing the writing skills of every person on staff. It’s worked. In just five and a half years, Flume has achieved remarkable local and global…
