A Sneak Peek at the Episode
[1:25] We are introduced to Michelle, who owns her own agency, and is very sought after in the digital marketing industry.
[8:00] Instead of having Michelle’s vision be on numbers, it’s been on what those numbers can bring her and how it can open up new opportunities for her and her team. And she tries to transfer that same mindset to her clients.
[10:15] Don’t lose sight of the snowball effect that your work can create, the change it can create for your clients, and remember that when determining your worth and what to charge.
[12:30] Don’t assume that a potential client will understand how your services will benefit their business!
[16:00] If you are ready to hire someone you don’t need to jump right in with a full time employee, don’t forget you can break it up into what will be the most efficient work flow.
[18:30] It is okay to change your business structure. It is your business and you can decide what you want to do and what works best for you!
[19:50] When Michelle is looking for a copywriter, or helping a client find a copywriter, she makes sure to look for someone who can guide her on what they think she needs to get the most leads, sales, conversions, etc.. She wants someone who can give her all the information so she can make a savvy business decision.
[24:00] It’s important to know there is a different between being nervous and being apathetic when on a call with a potential client. Show that you value your services and are interested in the business of the potential client!
