The next tip I am going to give you is to use all of the connections you have. Marketing is a fairly common market and it is a good chance you probably have some people that can help you. Whether you have to ask someone to help you promote, or get the word out, it is going to be super beneficial for you. When I first started my agency, I asked all of my friends to pass out my business card so that everyone knew my name and what I was doing. The more people you talk to the better chance you can find to help you out with your marketing agency.
The third thing you need to do to make sure that you have a successful marketing agency is to be very personable and nice with the people you work with. You never know who you are going to be working with. You never really know what connections people have. The more open and nice you are with your clients the better chance you have for them to come back to you or recommend you to their friends. I’ve made a ton of friends doing this now and I can’t tell you how many connections I have been able to get out of it because of just being nice. Marketing is all about how you look and who you know. Make sure to take advantage of your people skills if you have them.
The next thing I would tell you to do in order to have a successful online agency is to make sure that you have a good paying job, preferably something related to marketing somehow, while you are learning and getting started. Having money is going to be key if you want to make money. Once you have the start up, you are good to go though. A good paying job can be all of the difference between a successful company and one that will just fall apart. This gives you the chance to fail more and still be ok. Having a job that is in the same market as marketing can help you make connections and find people to work with as well. I would suggest trying for that first.
