Go From Freelancer To Business Owner

How To Turn Your Agency Into An Actual Business

[THREAD]
You have an 'agency' but you're essentially a freelancer

You're the bottleneck

Without you, there is no 'agency'

Here's how to turn it into a valuable business
1. FOCUS ON RESULTS

Without results, there are no clients, without clients there is no business

Ensure you're consistently getting results for your clients

If you're not getting results:

> Test messaging
> Improve lead quality
> Multi-channel outreach
2. SYSTEMS & PROCESSES

- Creat standard operating procedures for EVERY task

- Detail step-by-step how to complete each task

- It should be simple enough that anyone reading could complete the task

This will help you delegate and scale
3. DELEGATE & AUTOMATE

Use your standard operating procedures to hire VA's to free up your time
- Lead sourcing
- First-line writing

Automate what you can
- Client onboarding
- Prospect replies etc.

Use your time to focus on
- Getting results for clients
- New client outreach
4. RE-INVEST YOUR PROFITS

Use profits to build an in-house team of employees

Recruit roles for every task

> Lead sourcing and cold outreach
> Copywriters
> Project manager
>Client retention etc

You want to slowly remove yourself from the day-to-day tasks and focus on growth
5. FOCUS ON GROWTH

Become THE experts within your niche

> Get results
> Have Social proof - Client case studies
> Generate client referrals
> Build and leverage reputation
6. A REAL BUSINESS

Now you will have built a real, valuable business, that isn't solely dependent upon you and is an asset you can leverage

> Exit for 7 figures
> Pass it onto your children

Stop being a freelancer and start building a real business

Took My Agency From 18k - 20k/month Today Without Signing Another Client

Here's how

[SHORT THREAD]
When I first sign a client I make it clear that:

My goal is to increase my monthly price because I aim to increase their revenue

I agree with the client revenue scale targets that then lead to an increase in my monthly price

Example

I bring in $40K/month > I charge $4k/month
I make the client give me a list of 10 of their dream clients

- I go out and try to get them

- When I do, they get to name-drop a great client

- I build leverage

Ask the same of your clients

My friend was made redundant from his 9-5 on September 25th

In November he earned £1,785 working for himself (£350 more than his monthly wage)

Here’s what we did to get him there

[THREAD]
First we identified what he wanted to do

He said he’d love to have his own web design company but had ZERO experience

Not ideal, but I said I’d help
First we got him a domain through Google and added Google workspace so he would have personalised email

He used Carrd to create a landing page for his services “local web design”

Now we needed someone who could actually build a website
