Description:

The marketing agency model is broken. Traditional firms are fighting to remain relevant by grasping for new services and techniques--such as social, mobile, SEO, and content--rather than focusing on what really matters: pricing structure, technology, staffing, infrastructure, processes, and purpose. We are now on the cusp of a truly transformational period in the marketing services industry and the successes of solutions such as crowdSPRING and the HubSpot Marketplace have proven demand for non-traditional platforms and services, specifically among the more than 27 million small businesses in the U.S. As a result, everything is changing: marketing budget allocations, agency pricing and service models, industry influencers, measurement methods, and software platforms. The agencies with the will and vision to adapt and evolve will rise, while many traditional PR, advertising, SEO and web development firms will become obsolete. As such, the book presents 10 rules for a new hybrid agency model designed to help firms disrupt and redefine the marketing services industry. The book  is a practical and candid guide that shows agencies and consultants how to Build tech-savvy, hybrid firms Generate more qualified leads Win clients with set pricing and service packages. Secure more long-term retainers. Create diverse and recurring revenue streams Develop highly efficient management systems. Construct more effective account teams. Recruit and retain top talent. Deliver greater results and value to clients. Increase client loyalty
