Resources to help you grow your agency

Below is a curated list of consultants, coaches, firms and vendors that help creative and marketing agencies grow – to survive and thrive

You are here either because:

1. You may not be ready yet to work directly with an agency development coach or consultant and are at the research stage. I put together this big list of agency growth resources in the spirit of helpfulness: see if any help you with your goals.  

2. You have now read enough blogs, binged on YouTube and want some tangible support.
I’m your man: please get in touch.

Smart Insights Agency Growth Toolkit

http://www.smartinsights.com/toolkit/agency/

The first place to look if you want to go it alone is the excellent Smart Insights site. They have a huge amount of digital marketing learning materials AND a specific section that supports agency growth.

I write the majority of the content in that section for Smart Insights agency members to use.

But I also work directly with agencies so you can engage with me here if you want to move on from the online guides.

Agency Growth Coaches and Consultants

Larger agency growth consultancies

Agency marketing systems / platform providers

who serve (and write about) agencies

Finance or legal services for Agencies

Agency owner communities / networks

Agency owner and senior team development

Agency owners can often be ‘accidental leaders’, here are some books and course I have come across that hopefully help you to develop

Account Handler development

Account handlers (or client services, terms vary) are the bedrock of great agencies (alongside awesome creatives, genius coders and data and media experts of course!).

But they can often come straight out of college or university and be thrown as an exec straight into the deep end with little or no training across a range of skills. The organisations below may be of help in rectifying that:

Podcasts on #agencylife and #agencygrowth

Intermediaries / directories
