Yep... I start conversations and pass notes for a living. Take that, Mrs. Dansby!

Lee Goff
CEO at Lee Goff - Your Marketing Agency Coach

I am an entrepreneur who grew up in the deep South, raised in Pascagoula, Mississippi by people who taught me to work hard and do what is right. I started my first agency, GETUWired, in 2003 in my upstairs bedroom with absolutely nothing. After growing GETUWired into a multi-million dollar agency, winning 2012 Technology Partner Of The Year, 2013 Infusionsoft Innovator Of The Year, Top Company Culture - Entrepreneur Magazine in 2015, and Infusionsoft Elite Business Of The Year Finalist in 2015, and many more accomplishments, I decided to step out and retire. I took the advice of Jim Collins and the Infusionsoft Leadership and began handing off leadership responsibilities, eventually leading to my retirement from the agency in early 2014. Then in June of 2016 I sold out the remaining shares to my long time partners to pursue my passion of mentoring small businesses. Leading, guiding, mentoring and encouraging other entrepreneurs down a slightly easier road than I had, is my true mission! By combining timeless old school philosophies with automation and the cloud, my team and I have created the perfect combination that allowed me to work smarter by actually working less - giving me the time to take care of myself and my family - therefore, allowing me the quality of life I and every entrepreneur needs and deserves!

Alex Glenn
CEO at Partnerhub®

I'm a proud dad and founder of Partnerhub.app - a unique new marketplace and partner management solutions built for digital agencies to find, vet, manage and enable their partners.

In 2006, I founded my first agency with the intention of creating full transparency marketing programs to help his clients learn to operate the strategies without him.

While this was successful - the agency secured dozens of $5K+ retainers, the unique model of training the clients while executing was too altruistic and not scalable.

Eventually, the agency morphed into a directory called Automated.af which helped match marketing automation experts to businesses who needed them.

In operating this marketplace, I discovered how few of these saas platforms in the automations actually enabled the agency experts to sell services on top of their solutions.

This was the genesis of the research which inevitably became Partnerhub®.

I've spent my career helping founders and teams to build and execute creative growth systems. Now, I am helping digital agencies find strategic and referral partnerships using our community and Partnerhub.app/

Opening Keynote: The Cube of Creativity - Why adding constraints sparks innovation, action & builds business.

Live Workshop

Andrew Davis
Thursday, August 25th · 10:30 am ET
Andrew Davis

Sure. Covid-19 created some constraints. We are constrained to our desks, our homes, our families, and Zoom calls. We're constrained to virtual events, virtual sales calls, virtual networking, virtual happy hours. For some, all these constraints severely affected our businesses.
For others, the constraints became their fuel for growth. If the pandemic has taught us anything, it's that constraints breed creativity.
In this exhilarating and inspiring 60-minute session, Andrew Davis will break down the five limitations you can add to any initiative to drive better outcomes.

You'll learn how one non-profit turned its shutdown into millions of dollars in donations. Andrew will reveal how a small bet with massive restraints resulted in a best-selling book. He'll even show you how one business beat the pandemic by snooping through old SEC filings.

More importantly, you'll walk away ready to apply smart constraints to your business: limitations that result in more significant success.

Are you ready to embrace the constraints?

Grow Your Agency With More Time, Ease and Impact!

Live Workshop

Bryan Kramer
Thursday, August 25th · 12:15 pm ET
Bryan Kramer

As business owners, we all want to know that our lives and our family’s lives mean something. However, the agency business is not for the faint of heart. We all too often get caught in a “crazy-eight” that holds us back from success, and that’s not what we got into business to do.

 

There are three “root cause problems” that hold most business owners back:

 

1) You are really good at what you do, but YOU have become the service and the product.

2) You’re working for a paycheck instead of building an asset.

3) You’re anchored to the business because you haven't built a productive, profitable team that makes it possible for you to go on vacation without checking email.Imagine a world where you led with impact and created impenetrable growth that doesn't create burnout. Bryan will show how it’s possible, with the power of self-ownership.

Consider Bryan your personal change agent, as you learn the steps to take control over how others see your most valuable asset – you.

Today’s consumers expect it all: a rewarding experience at every digital touchpoint; a lightning-fast response when asking pre-purchase and post-purchase questions on social; personalization and a sense of belonging. Add to that a pandemic that forced even the most hesitant users online to make purchases (and complaints) and it’s mandatory that brands get on board with digital transformation. And, from experience, they’re all asking: “Where do we start?”

Effectively, to compete in 2022 and beyond, you must know your customers inside and out. You also must meet them where they are. And increasingly, they’re asking questions and filing complaints through social media. Join Brooke B. Sellas, Founder & CEO of B Squared Media, for a conversation on creating highly effective customer experiences that elevate your brand and encourage customer loyalty. She’ll provide real-world examples of how to use high-tech tools -- while still being high-touch -- and together, we’ll learn how social media listening and social-led customer care are springboards for increased sales and brand loyalty.

How to Win the RFP

Live Workshop

Jody Sutter
On Demand
Jody Sutter

For most agency leaders, the Request for Proposal or RFP is not their favorite point along the sales journey:

- You have limited-to-zero opportunity for communicating with the client
- You're often asked to work within restrictions that seem unfair and arbitrary
- You find yourself reinventing your agency creds and shoehorning them in to fit the client’s needs- And the questions can confound you—what exactly are they asking and why?

By design, RFPs are meant to level the playing field. And because of this, agencies overlook them as a strategic sales tool and default to simply doing what they’re told.

But your job in a pitch is to win.In this talk, you’ll benefit from my experience responding to hundreds of marketing RFPs as both a new business leader at large agencies and an advisor to small agencies. We’ll explore how to turn the RFP response from a dreaded chore to a strategic moment in the pitch process for demonstrating why your agency is the best choice.

Do you have systems in place for when your social media accounts — or your clients’ social media accounts — go viral and gain 10,000 followers overnight? You have a gigantic influx of DM’s and questions from followers in the comments that your team needs to respond to in an “on brand” way — and fast— to maintain that high level of customer satisfaction.Or, what happens when yet another national tragedy strikes on the day of your clients’ new collection launch? Do you have a crisis communication system in place for how to respond internally and communicate with your clients’ customers on social media?The answer to both scenarios is community management, and not JUST community management, but establishing an easy-to-follow system of “on brand” responses and protocols that your agency, your clients and any new hires can follow. An established community management system will not only maintain — but amplify — your clients’ brand reputation, customer satisfaction and (arguably the most important for you) alleviate unnecessary stress on your team.

Your Clients Need You to Stop Storytelling and Start Storyselling... Today!

Breakout

Andrea Hubbert
On Demand
Andrea Hubbert

Humans are hardwired to remember stories. Using stories to sell yourself or your products and services is a compelling way to connect with customers, which is why getting it right is so important.

But storytelling by itself is not enough.

You need to help your clients start storyselling, too. This does more than just captivate, entertain, and build a bond. Storyselling drives action and purchase.Let’s break it down:

• Storytelling is great for sharing information, entertaining, or influencing your audience.

• Storyselling has a much clearer objective: it's about getting your peeps to take action (buy your thing... join your program... attend your event).Storyselling offers that little extra panache that gets your audience to fall in love with your offers... and then makes them trip all over themselves to ensure they don't miss out every time you ask.

IT'S TIME TO LEVEL UP YOUR CLIENTS’ STORYTELLING SO THAT THEY:

• Are set apart from the competition by speaking authentically and intentionally with their peeps.

• Can be confident in sharing their uniqueness because it cannot be duplicated or copied no matter how hard others try.

• Have all eyes on them because they’ve cracked the code on calling their audience to act in a way that feels good for them both.
