Is there really a shortcut to Agency Excellence?
Turn chaos into clarity
Go from confused to confident with a comprehensive toolkit, proven to boost agency profitability
While you certainly can’t cut corners when building a great marketing agency, there is a fast track—a set of battle-tested tactics and shortcuts that result in better processes… and sanity for your agency.
And of course, higher profits.
These processes are easy to deploy; they’re designed to speed up and smooth out the ride, while also diminishing the stress of running and scaling your agency.
What is the one thing the most profitable agencies have in common?
(Hint: for scaling a high-profit agency, you absolutely must have this.)
Some wildly successful agencies charge high rates, others… not so much. Some boast big-name brands as clients, others don’t. But the one thing they all share—and this is what makes them amusingly profitable: they all have the right internal habits and processes.
Highly profitable agencies have well-engineered processes and company-wide habits that guarantee agency profitability and client satisfaction.
How do I know? I have advised hundreds of agencies that became highly profitable—because they followed certain key procedures. The Agency Profitability Toolkit™ helps you create systems that guarantee:
Better work-life balance
First, a mercifully brief introduction about me, Karl Sakas. In short:
I’ve been in digital marketing since the days of dialup (1997).
I know the stress and frustration of running an agency… the chaos, the overwhelm. I’ve been there. But I also know what it takes to turn things around—and create order, scale, and profitability. Now I do this everyday.
My consulting clients typically report a significant ROI within the first year... and many of the processes continue to benefit their agency for years to come.
I’ve drawn on my experience advising 300+ agencies worldwide and my prior background as an agency operations director to develop a library of templates to help agencies achieve excellence faster.
With proven, battle-tested templates, there is no need to reinvent the wheel. Smart agencies look for shortcuts: tools and SOPs that have worked for others that they can adapt.
When designing the growth of your agency (or when you want to just get rid of chaos), there are seven areas screaming for structure:
Within these seven areas, there are several common profit-wrenching symptoms your agency may be experiencing. If you bump into these issues, you will not grow. Even if you do grow, you’ll only create more headaches… or even chaos.
Read that again: if you don’t get your processes and internal habits in order, chaos will be infused into the DNA of your agency. You cannot outgrow these problems; they will stick around and magnify chaos—and erode profit margins.
The good news is that there are solutions for them. Here are just a few:
For account management:
Many agencies are leaving money with clients… and don’t even know it!
You’ll be shocked at how much free work has slipped out undetected in each project: use my Work Breakout Calculator to find the holes… so you can plug them.
Do you regularly have clients who just aren't happy… but don't know why?
My Client Happiness Audit will help you find and fix problems before they cause trouble.
We all hate surprises mid-project.
They frustrate everyone and cost you money. Use my Client Intake Questionnaire to avoid problems before they happen and clear up questions in advance.
Account Management is just one of seven areas that are crucial in turning your agency into a high-profit powerhouse.
You also need structure to manage your teams. The Agency Profitability Toolkit™ can help:
Track key info about employees and contractors—using a simple yet powerful scorecard.
Create a plan to help struggling employees. The Performance Improvement Plan (PIP) guides you through this process… so you don't have to start from scratch.
To transform your agency, you also need to “create time.” Time to work on important systems, do your own marketing, and unplug to recharge and re-energize yourself!
Here are three of the tools designed to help you find more time in your schedule:
The Time-Bucket Template: A tool to find things to drop, delegate, or defer.
The TOP5 Daily Checklist: A simple worksheet to prioritize what to do each day.
Quarterly SMART Goal Planner: A no-nonsense way to do goal-setting 90 days at a time.
What is it costing you every month that you don’t have these processes and systems in place?
Can you put a price tag on…
Never having time to work ON the business?
Saying "yes" to the wrong prospects?
Leaving client retention to chance?
Not tracking billables properly?
Feeling like you can't unplug from work?
Normally, my clients pay at least $25,000 a year to get unlimited access to help like this. With the Agency Profitability Toolkit™ (A.P.T.), you gain access to those same templates, tools, and SOPs… for a fraction of the price.
The Agency Profitability Toolkit™ is an easy and straightforward way to drag ‘n’ drop these industry-leading best practices, templates, and methods into your agency.
Instead of a course* that takes you months to complete, the Agency Profitability Toolkit™ is an ever-growing library of resources—a toolbox you can access any time you get stuck.
Here is how it works:
- You have a problem (like: “I need to tell an unhappy client we made a mistake”)
- Access the Agency Profitability Toolkit™ and find the right tool (like: “25+ pre-written scripts for difficult client conversations”)
- Apply the tool… and “crisis averted!”
* The A.P.T. focuses on fast-access, fast-help. But there are a few high-value books and training videos to help you dig deeper.
“The Agency Profitability Toolkit™ has spoiled me—in a good way! Since I’ve gotten my hands on it, I now default to it anytime a process-related problem comes up and realize: ‘oh, there’s a template for that!’ The A.P.T. has been of huge value.”
–Dan Renyi, Campgrowth
Without the Agency Profitability Toolkit™, you’re left guessing, experimenting, or scouring the Internet for tips. This costs you time, money, and opportunities.
You can see the Agency Profitability Toolkit™ for yourself and experience the immediate value you’ll get from implementing even a few of the 50+ templates, worksheets, and processes. You get an unconditional 30-day, money-back guarantee. If the A.P.T. doesn’t meet your expectations, you can ask for a full refund and keep whatever you’ve used.
“I would highly recommend Sakas & Company and Karl Sakas to any agency owner or manager interested in getting great advice, increasing their profitability, and making their overall lives a lot easier!”
