Organic Growth: How to Capture a Greater Share of Each Client's Marketing Spend

Client expectations of agencies have spiked. They are demanding deeper insights and strategy that cuts across a growing number of channels and creates immediate business impact. 

At the same time, clients are now leaving at a pace we’ve not seen before. With little notice, they are moving to those agencies they believe can most quickly achieve growth given all the recent change.

Completely updated for the year ahead, this live training program will give your teams the skills to more proactively identify business-building ideas their clients need – then presenting those new project ideas so clients will buy them. Ultimately, your team will be put to work crafting Organic Growth Plans that are assertive, actionable and accountable.

Identify Business-Building Ideas Your Client Will Want to Buy 

Clients have become incredibly particular about any unplanned work they approve. Often, when agencies proactively take new project ideas or new agency capabilities forward to their clients, the most common reaction is, “sorry, we have no more budget.”  

This issue is not with the client’s budget, it’s that none of the ideas were deemed worthy of funding. “No more budget” really means, “I can’t justify the budget for this random idea. It’s easier just to tell you I have no money.” The truth is that clients regularly create budgets for new projects, but only when the return is adequately justified.

In this session, step-by-step, you'll work through two powerful strategic tools to identify new project ideas clients will want to buy – with a particular emphasis on projects that directly impact their business growth. We’ll also reveal the new criteria by which clients are now approving incremental projects.
