The Pitfalls Of Starting An Agency (And How To Avoid Them)
Join Darian Kovacs at Creative Pulse on Thursday, November 28th
How do you grow your business without feeling awkward and inauthentic?
As an agency owner that started in his basement in Fort Langley, then a small storage room in Abbotsford, Darian Kovacs tried everything from cold email to attending random networking meetings.
But these tactics didn’t feel right.
Then, Darian found a different way to get the name of his business out there, all while doing what he loved to do: give.
Using this new strategy, Darian gained attention from the decision-makers he was looking to attract.
And within a few years, Jelly Digital Marketing grew from 2 people to 18.
On November 28, Darian will share the biggest mistakes he made when starting Jelly Marketing. He’ll also show you how to avoid these pitfalls, so you can grow your creative business faster.
Agency founders, freelancers, and industry leaders can attend this Talk + Social to discover:
- How to grow your business by giving first.
- How to pitch ideas to clients and keep long-term, healthy relationships.
- How saying “no” makes room for your best clients.
Join us at Elevator Strategy for tasty beverages and pizza — and discover how to take your creative business to the next level.
