How to Scale Your Lead-Gen Agency to Five Figures A Month

(The Proven Way)

⚡THREAD⚡
IDENTIFY A NICHE & NARROW IT DOWN

Broad niches are saturated. That ultimately means less money.

Marketing agencies offering EVERYTHING > That's a saturated niche

Marketing agency offering SEO integrated with influencer marketing to tech industry > That's a NARROW niche
DEFINE YOUR OFFER

Countless agencies have bland offers.

The purpose of your offer is to:

- Reduce the perceived risk
- Reduce the odds of receiving a negative response

Get paid for your performance and offer a guarantee

5 months ago I knew nothing about starting a Lead Gen Agency

Today my agency is at $25K MMR

Here's my story 👇
End of November 2020 I bought Cold Email Mastery

Here's me asking @blackhatwizardd VERY BASIC questions

I had no idea how to run an agency

I just knew I wanted to make it work
I saw the results everyone was getting and knew I could do the same I just needed to put the WORK in

I worked at it EVERY DAY consistently

Applied what I learned from CEM

Didn't give up, EVEN when things didn't go the way I wanted them to

HOW TO GO FROM 0-10K A MONTH

AS A SALES CLOSER

[THREAD]
The service:

You’re going to contact SaaS companies and offer to help them DOUBLE their closing rate on calls

These companies are typically tech-minded and tend to have <15% closing rates (from who I have spoken to)
Why SaaS companies?

They tend to have:

- Higher priced services/product
- Quicker delivery to customer
- Lower costs
- Recurring payments
- Ability to scale quicker

Absolutely make sense for them to pay someone 5K/month to double their closing rate

How To Close Your Next Call

[THREAD]
1. BE CONFIDENT

- Remember the prospect is already interested in your service
- Create a structure for your call
- Role-play calls with a friend
- Address questions you feel may be asked by a prospect and have answers ready

This will build your confidence
2. FORGET EMOTIONAL SELLING

You already know your prospects "pain-points" - They want to make more money

Sell the outcome your service delivers

- Them making more money

Fact find

Understand what they've tried & what didn't work

- Explain how you'd make it work

How To Get Results For Your Next Client

[THREAD]
1. BEFORE YOU SIGN A CLIENT

- Hire 2 VA's

Have them writing killer personalised lines & ready to go

- Hire a lead-gen VA

Use Upwork or Onlinejobs/ph and expect to pay around $0.15-$0.30 per lead

80% of the work outsourced
2. QUALIFY

ONLY sign a client if

> They have minimum 2 EXCELLENT case studies
> Charge minimum $3k for product/service
> Are already CLOSING deals

This means turning down 75% of the people you speak to

The more qualified the client, the easier it is to get results

How To Write Better Emails

⚡THREAD⚡ Image
1. Make Sure You're Targeting The Right People

If the leads you're contacting
- Don't have a need for your service
- Aren't the decision-makers

Your campaign is going to suck no matter how good the email is

Research the industry and target the relevant decision-makers
2. Understand Your Audience

Understand who you're speaking to and adapt your emails to suit them

Example:

You should have a different approach when contacting IT directors than you would if you were contacting Creative directors

Don't use the same template for everyone

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

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

HOW TO RETAIN YOUR CLIENTS

Something I don’t see anyone talking about

[THREAD]
1. UNDERSTAND THEM

Know your clients and understand their:

- Pain points
- Ideal clients
- Goals

Also, get to know them personally

This will help you know how best to provide value
GO ABOVE AND BEYOND

I want to provide MASSIVE value for my clients

When I first onboard them, I ask who their dream clients are

I then make a plan to go out and target them

- If I get them, I’ve 10x my value

- If I don’t, I’ve shown I’m ballsy enough to try for them

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
