The Ugly Truth About Your Agency Growth Plan with The Gent from Gent - SDV
There are agency growth plans that are not as ideal as it seems on paper. A conversation I’ve had with an agency owner highlights this fact. Despite steady growth for his agency over the past couple of months, he felt exhausted and burned out. He was shackled to a 12-hour workday, thinking that getting even more clients would give him the revenue he was aiming for. In this episode, we discuss the complexities of scaling as we separate the myths and fallacies from the hard truths of business scaling. Topics: 0:01:58 – The Standard Growth Model: Adding More Customers 0:04:35 – Actual Common Agency Growth Model 0:07:30 – The Growth Sprint Formula and The Perfect Growth Model: Sustainable Growth & Regaining Your Time (And Sanity) 0:08:00 – How the Growth Sprint Agency Model Creates High-Impact Teams on Autopilot 0:09:00 – Working ON the Business, Not IN the Business 0:11:00 – Dreadful Scenario: What If Your Best Employee Suddenly Leaves? Highlights: - A basic overview of the Growth Sprint Formula - The standard growth model versus the perfect growth model - Why the concept of merely accumulating more customers to achieve growth is too simplistic and therefore, often misunderstood and wrongly implemented - Debunking more common beliefs about scaling and growth - Making sure your agency is ready to take on more customers - Maintaining a loyal customer base is more important than piling up clients - How to achieve the growth you want without burning out - Building better teams and systems - Why your team is your best resource Resources: https://stefaandevreese.com/ https://growthsprintformula.scoreapp.com/ https://www.facebook.com/stefaan.devreese.7 https://www.facebook.com/groups/growthsprintformula
