Better positioning.
Better
results.

Positioning and pricing strategies for agencies and customized services firms that want to stand out, sell more and get paid for the value they create.

Is poor positioning sucking money out of your business?

The signs are there if you know where to look

Giving away ideas?

Do you spend time and money developing concepts for pitches, that you let clients have for FREE?

Dangerously exposed?

Are you dependent on one or two big clients? Or does one client make up more than 25% of total revenues???

Hourly rate hamster wheel?

If you want to make more money, do you need to bill more hours? To bill more hours do you need more people?

Don't stand out?

Do lots of competitors offer similar services? Is it hard to differentiate? Are you in a market of the few or a market of many?

Selling feels hard?

Are you generating enough leads? Are prospects interested in what you have to say and the value you offer?

Addicted to discounting?

Does nearly every proposal you make include a discount, to “show value” and “win the business”?

Underutilized team?

Is your team billing enough hours to hit revenue goals? Are you winning enough new business to keep them busy?

Top talent hard to find?

Do developers and creatives WANT to work for you? Or are you losing them to bigger, better agencies?

Losing to 'better fit' agencies?

Do you lose pitches to more specialised, larger or ‘better fit’ agencies? Do you lose more pitches than you win?

Inconsistent story?

Does everyone on your team tell the same story? Do they buy into it? Can they convince prospects to buy in?
