5 Beasts Your Agency Faces (And How to Slay Them)

December 15, 2017


First, the bad news: Your agency is in danger. But the good news is now that you know, you can do something about it.

The things that hunt you may be readily apparent or nearly invisible, but like other agencies out there, they hunt you just the same. Maybe it’s a struggle with tracking and quantifying your freelance spend, dealing with the collaboration struggles that come with agency growth, or maybe it’s the daily battle against a mountain of busywork that keeps you distracted and steals creative time.

You want to fight back and reclaim the job you love, but with so much on the line, where do you begin?

In this webinar, Jake Wells and Emily Higinbotham take on the 5 beastly problems that are hounding modern agencies and show you how to fight back, including:

  • Balancing creativity and process
  • Identifying and eliminating time-wasting work
  • Reduce the number of rounds of reviews
  • Solving the resource planning puzzle
  • Taking control of your freelance spend
