Marketing agency client specialist

I help marketing agencies grow through stronger and more sustainable client relationships.

HOW DO I HELP AGENCIES?

Client Services
Performance

If you need to lift this team’s performance, I have a long and proven history of helping achieve the right structure, talent, culture and behaviours to create the conditions for success.

DELIVERABLE

Organic Growth Development

The best agencies know that organic growth rarely just happens. That’s why they use a dedicated strategic approach to unlock growth opportunities across their client portfolio.

I embed this well-used approach in agencies, equipping teams with the systems and behaviours necessary to develop and convert new revenue opportunities from existing clients.

PROCESS: 
Client Lead 1-2-1 coaching to develop growth-focussed account plans for each key client

DELIVERABLE: 
Key account plans for agency leadership approval plus ongoing coaching to ensure successful implementation.

TIMESCALE: 
Approximately 2 weeks for account plans plus quarterly reviews

Client Relationship Evaluation

The most insightful appraisal of any agency’s performance is from their customers. They have the power to turn spend on, or divert spend away.

Utilising a mixture of quant and qual techniques, this objective analysis delivers unique intelligence and insight where it is needed most: at the heart of the client/agency dynamic.

PROCESS: 
Mixture of quant/qual bespoke survey together with supplemental 1-2-1 key client interviews

DELIVERABLE: 
Objective performance appraisal of all client relationships coupled with recommended action plan
