If you take a look around Digital Agency Coach’s website you’ll see the two core services we offer to digital agency owners: Mastermind Groups and Coaching & Mentoring Programs.
Digital Agency Coach’s bi-monthly Mastermind Groups provide a peer-to-peer learning and networking environment for agency owners and are a brilliant way to share ideas, learning and insights with other like-minded professionals. Watch our Mastermind Group Explainer Video (1min) for a detailed look at how this service benefits busy digital agency owners.
Our Coaching & Mentoring Program is by far our most comprehensive and rewarding service, where our agency owners benefit from extensive 1:1 consultancy and expertise guaranteed to scale and grow their digital marketing agencies.
In this article, we share how our Coaching & Mentoring Programs work and what you, as an agency owner, will experience both during and as a result of the program.
1:1 coaching provides a dedicated space to solve problems, gain accountability, design and execute business plans through external, expert advice. You’ll make decisions faster, build better teams, deliver higher quality work and your digital agency will grow, and you’ll enjoy the journey.
All Digital Agency Coach Mentee’s have the opportunity to become one of our successful agency owners who:
Grew Their Revenue & Profit
You’ll achieve significant growth in both your revenue and your profit within the first 12 months of working with us.
Won More Leads, Clients & Awards
You’ll develop the skills to convert more leads, grow your client base and win noteworthy, genuine industry awards as part of your recognition.
Bought, Merged Or Sold Businesses
Want to grow quickly through Mergers & Acquisitions? We’ll guide you through the processes and purpose behind these growth strategies so you can benefit from the results faster.
Gained Freedom And/Or Early Retirement
You’ll be able to spend less time in your business and start working on it. Our mentees now have more time and freedom to do the things they enjoy, and many have been able to reap the rewards of their lifetime’s work and step into retirement.
Participating in our Coaching & Mentoring program generally follows this engagement process:
Onboarding — This where the scope of work is agreed and all our reciprocal learning and understanding is carried out.
Building — Together, we put together a strategy and a plan based on our learnings from Step One
Execution — As the name suggests, Stage Three is where we execute the plan and start to grow your agency.
This is where we get to know each other. We’ll begin with a discovery session, where our consultant will ask you to share details and insights about your agency’s current status and any plans, aspirations and goals you have for the future.
This then is reviewed, packaged and shared with you. We’ll put together a presentation that summarises your goals, business position and the strengths, weaknesses and opportunities for your agency. We’ll also detail a top-level roadmap and a handful of quick wins for you to implement then and there which are guaranteed to have an immediate effect on your business from day one.
This onboarding phase usually takes about a month to complete and once we have this understanding we can put together a plan and roadmap for us to move forward with.
This is where we put together your growth strategy. We’ll use our Agency Accelerator Canvas to break down your business plan into achievable, bite-sized objectives, milestones and KPI’s for you and your team.
Our consultants will work with you to formulate a plan and share insight, context, benchmarks and tactics from our portfolio of the 250 digital agencies we’ve worked with. Creating these objectives and key results and writing your business strategy usually takes about 6–8 weeks to complete.
Stage three – execution, makes up around 75–85% of our program. This is where we put our planning into practice and start to make big, impactful changes to your agency’s operations.
You’ll chat with your consultant weekly for 10–15 minute accountability meetings to check in and make sure things are running smoothly. Between these sessions and our ongoing, ‘always-on’, ad-hoc support, you’ll execute the daily and weekly tasks in your business plan.
Every four weeks we’ll set aside a few hours to plan for the coming month and set the KPI’s to make sure the overarching plan is still in sight. Then each quarter, we’ll orchestrate a full review of the work completed and the work ahead and make any necessary changes to the master plan.
At Digital Agency Coach, we work deeply with a small roster of agencies at any one time as our Coaching & Mentoring Programs are long-term relationships that deliver long-term, long-lasting results. The average timeline for these programs is anywhere between 12 to 18 months, depending on your capacity.
Now that we’ve unpacked our Coaching & Mentoring Program and how our services can help you achieve stratospheric growth for your marketing agency — it’s time to ask yourself if this is the right fit for you and how you like to work.
If the answer is yes, please get in touch and Arrange A Free Consultation with one of our friendly consultants. We’ll be happy to answer any questions you might have and get you on the path to success.
