You’d take an airplane and fly to New Zealand. Why? Because the destination requires a specific method of getting there. […]

My Interesting Experience With BNI Visitors Day

by pkenney @ Digital Marketing Specialist Patrick Kenney

When I walk in at 7:05am, I have an open mind about the whole thing. But much like second hand accounts of movies never compare to seeing it with your own eyes, second hand accounts of BNI just don’t compare to experiencing it for yourself. Having read Brandon Rossen’s post about BNI, I am well prepared for the worst….or […]

    How YOU and YOUR Customers Benefit From Surveys and Focus Groups

    by @ Fayette Heating and Air News / Blog


    ​All to many times, we assume that other people THINK THE WAY WE DO - in fact, statistics tell us that 60% of our first impressions are WRONG due to this assumption. Think about it, age, gender, education, culture, family background, life experience, personality type, emotional make-up and the like, ALL make us who we are and go along way to determine HOW we think. The result of NOT finding out HOW our customers think and ASSUMING we already know is a clear path to marketing, advertising, promotion and “Campaign-Aggedon!”

    Here are a few things to think about when setting up the audience, type, verbiage and general content of an effective survey campaign or focus group. Keep in mind - surveys are great to find out what your customer is thinking (who, what, when and where) while focus groups tend to be less objective, more subjective and tell us WHY and HOW! So, a few things to consider…

     

    Top 12 Survey Best Practices

    One of the best ways to keep your finger on the pulse of your business or organization is to gather feedback from your most valuable asset: your customers and members and vendors. Then, efficiently gathering feedback, analyzing it, and acting on it in a meaningful way to increase your business or organization’s success and strengthen your relationships. To help you gather feedback from your customers, donors, members, and constituents, we’ve assembled the top 12 best practices for effectively building and promoting an online survey. Put them to work as you plan and implement your next one, and it’s sure to be a success!

    1. Have a single, well-defined objective. 

    What feedback do you really want from your customers? Narrow down what you want to know to the key questions that get to theroot of the issue. For instance, when conducting a post-transaction satisfaction survey, stick to questions surrounding the sale process and nothing more. This will keep your survey focused and help avoid the “just one more question” syndrome when building your survey. Take a few minutes to plan your survey and consider what you want to get out of the results before building your questions.

    2. Keep your survey short. 

    In a best-case scenario, a survey should take 5 minutes or less to complete in order to get the best response rate. Anything longer than 10 minutes should be re-thought, or survey takers should be given an incentive for giving that much of their time to answer your questions. Another key for keeping your survey to the point: Avoid questions with more than 10 answer options. Too many options for a single answer can confuse the survey taker and slow down completion time. Break the question into multiple questions or consider another way to phrase and answer it.   

    3. Design your survey for easily measurable results. 

    The key is to ask closed-ended questions that generate results that are easy to analyze, spot trends, and set base lines. A good example of a closed ended question is:

    What service(s) of ours do you use?

    a) Digital Marketing/Advertising

    b) TV and radio

    c) Billboards

    Using too many open-ended questions that require respondents to type out responses (i.e., “What do you like about our business”) will take time to read, code,and trend. Plus, they make for a longer survey completion time. Closed-ended questions make it easy for the survey taker to whisk through the questions and give you easily quantifiable data.

    4Ask one thing per question. 

    Seems simple enough, but it’s an easy trap to fall into when compiling questions. Avoid such inquiries as “Do you like pizza and ice cream?” These are two unrelated subjects and should be broken into separate questions that will allow survey takers to answer both independently.Make sure to give respondents a full opportunity to answer the question with an: “Other”, “Prefer Not to Answer”, or “Not Applicable” option where necessary. These answers, while vague, can provide better insight than a non-answer. Note: When giving an option of “Other,” it’s best to provide a text box for write-in answers.

    5. Avoid biasing the response. 

    Ask questions in a manner that doesn’t trend or lead to a preferred answer in a particular way. For instance, when gauging a customer’s likelihood of referring your business to friends, use a scale that ranges from “not very” to “extremely” with a few options in between. Avoid using “Always” or “Never” extremes as they can bias responses in the opposite direction.

    6. Limit required questions.

    Too many required questions in a survey can ruin the flow and likely decrease your response rate. We recommend making required questions only those that you absolutely need to make a business decision. 

    7. Question order matters.

    The first question or two should be easy and interesting to engage the respondent and get them into the ow of the survey. Place profile or demographic related questions at the end of the survey to avoid scaring people off. If a person has taken the time to answer all your questions first, they are more likely to provide at least some of their profile information at the end.

    8. Create a logical flow. 

    Group questions that cover similar topics together and use text boxes to introduce each section of the survey. Page breaks should be used to break up longer surveys to prevent what seems like an endless scroll of questions. A side bene t to page breaks is that they provide for an auto-save of prior responses every time someone clicks on them.

    9. Test the survey.

    Once you’ve completed building your survey, send it to a couple of trusted associates for testing purposes. Have them time how long it takes to complete and provide feedback on the overall ow of the survey. You can also check on the test entries to ensure the answers’ format will provide useful data.

    10. Spell out time expectations in your invite and on the greeting page. 

    When using an email survey invitation or a survey greeting page, tell the audience why you’re asking these questions, provide an estimated completion time, and explain what you will be doing with the data collected. Make the invite about the customer/survey taker by using “you” pronouns in your text.

    11. Get it in front of the right people. To get the most out of your survey efforts, you have to get the right people to take it, thereby providing the feedback about your organization that you’re looking for. Your objective and how well you know your customers will determine the appropriate audience for your survey. For a good response rate, we recommend sending it to the segment of your audience that will care most about the topic(s).

    12. Share the results and actions with respondents. 

    Once the survey is complete and the data is collected and analyzed, let the respondents know what you’ve learned and what actions you’ll be taking as a result. Following up with respondents (and customers in general) helps validate your relationship with them and sends the message that their opinions make a difference. When customers feel like a part of a business, they’re more likely to provide feedback in the future. 

    And so, you have the 12 Commandments of good survey questions. Here at Brand Advertising Group, we want to ensure YOUR success by giving you the very latest and up to date information so as a TEAM, we can make the best business decisions with your Marketing and Advertising dollars! And remember, with us - YOUR success is already in the B.A.G.!

    Five Little Reasons - And One Big One - To Hire an Ad Agency Part 2

    by @ Fayette Heating and Air News / Blog


    4. You don’t want to spend all your time wrangling freelancers.  I’m the last person in the world to bag on freelancers. I used to be one. I’d encourage anyone who wants the freedom of a freelance career to give it a go. It’s not for everyone but, for a great decade, it sure was for me. 

    It’s also likely that you can get really good freelance marketing help for less than you’d pay an ad agency for the same work. Freelancers have lower overhead. 

    But hiring and coordinating freelancers can be a hassle. With an ad agency, you ideally have a single point of contact - an account executive - you can lean on to coordinate getting all your work done. Having a great account executive you can rely on to oversee your advertising business can save you countless hours you’d otherwise spend bringing together the right team for each part of the job and keeping your projects moving. Ask anyone who’s ever had one: a great AE is worth his or her weight in the paperwork you don’t have to do to coordinate your advertising efforts. 

    5. You want to do the best advertising you possibly can.  If you think any advertising is good advertising, you may not need an agency. If you want to shake up your market and rocket your company to power, influence, and wealth - and you’re committed to expending the brainpower, time, and money to do the advertising it takes to help you get there - you probably need an ad agency. 

    All of which brings me back to my first thought: The reason you hire an ad agency is that we’re professionals. We’re really good at this stuff. When you invest the time and money in great advertising, it works. 

    You want your advertising to work? Hire a great ad agency and trust them. That works.

    Branding vs. Marketing: What’s the difference?

    by @ Fayette Heating and Air News / Blog


    Branding vs. Marketing: Creating “Top of Mind Awareness” or TOMA. 

    Branding is strategic. 

    Branding should both precede and underlie any marketing effort.  Branding is the expression of the essential truth or value of an organization, product, or service. It directly supports whatever sales or marketing activities are in play. It creates awareness so that when the customer has a NEED, you are the first company they think of to meet that specific need.

    Marketing is tactical.

    Marketing directly supports whatever sales or marketing activities are in play, (type of media and message: inform, persuade or remind) its message is simple: “Buy me – NOW!”  Marketing unearths and activates buyers to purchase your BRAND! It is –  THE CALL TO ACTION!

    5 ways to Measure the Effectiveness of your Social Media

    by @ Fayette Heating and Air News / Blog


    ​Across the board, social marketers and CMOs alike view social media as the marketing channel with the greatest ability to drive both of the major directives of any marketing team:

    1. To be the steward of the BRAND

    2. To allocate budget according to fan DEMAND

    To be a steward of the brand: Creating brand awareness and protecting brand’s reputation -  • To drive demand: Generating revenue opportunities and retention of current customers 

    • In order for social media to successfully fuel these two components, marketers need to understand how to measure success in each. 

    • On the revenue side, this means understanding conversions, attributing value to each post and link. This isn’t easy, but there’s an end-point. You’re connecting the dots between activity and purchase. On the brand side, it’s more nuanced than that, because there isn’t an end point. Over 2 billion people are active on social media, and not all of them know your brand.

    Five Little Reasons–And One Big One–To Hire an Ad Agency Part 1

    by @ Fayette Heating and Air News / Blog


    1. You value outside opinions and professional expertise.  The people who work in ad agencies are professionals - like lawyers and plumbers and accountants. I’ve dabbled in all three of those areas enough to know that dealing with them is best left to professionals. I’ve also learned that sometimes I’m too close to a situation and I need outside advisors to help me sort out a plan of action. Those are good reasons to hire an ad agency. It’s shocking how often we reveal strategic advantages and pitfalls our clients never anticipated - just because we have an outsider’s perspective. And because we’re professionals. You do what you do because you’re good at it. We’re good at advertising. 

    2. You have ongoing advertising/marketing needs that require professional attention.  If you need a product flyer or a radio spot, you may not need an ad agency. If you need a coordinated campaign that includes several media, or you need a big collateral system, or ongoing content for your blog, or videos and programs and speeches for your big event, or - well, you get it. Ad agencies are great for planning, coordinating, and executing complicated marketing communications programs and helping you get the most for the money you spend. 

    3. You can’t afford to have top-level advertising talent on staff.  We employ the talents of expert writers, designers, art directors, creative directors, web developers, business and marketing strategists, media planners, project managers, and account executives - not to mention photographers, videographers, directors, audio engineers, models and actors, printers, etc. All of these people have professional and technical expertise used in the creation of advertising. 

    You probably don’t want all these people on staff (neither do we). If you’re a big company, you can probably afford to have some of them on the payroll, and you may be able to keep them busy enough to justify their salaries. And if you’re lucky, you can snag a great writer or a fabulous designer with the promise of a steady paycheck in a stable environment. We know lots of great creative people who work on the client side. 

    But most top ad people don’t want to work for in-house departments. Most want to work for ad agencies, where they can use their talents to work on a variety of challenging assignments for different clients in different industries. They’re motivated less by job security and more by the prospect of doing daring work.

    Secrets to Unlocking Creativity - Can you say: “Weekend Re-Creation?”

    by @ Fayette Heating and Air News / Blog


     

    Blogpost: Secrets to Unlocking Creativity FOR the workweek. 

    Lindsay Kolowich 

     

    Let me make one thing clear: This is not a post about how you should spend your weekends working yourself to the bone.

    “Productivity” has a much wider definition than many of us give it credit for. We tend to equate productivity with doing things, rather than with taking time to think, reflect, rest and “re-create.”

    But busyness is not the same as productivity. Being productive can mean working on a project efficiently, but it can also mean giving your mind a break. After all, w hen people are exhausted and burnt out, they become less engaged at work—and Gallup reports that engaged employees are a whopping 28% more productive than unengaged employees. (Not to mention they’re happier, more attentive, and more innovative.)

    So, what are some ways you can make your weekends more productive, in every sense of the word?

    Check out the list below for some ideas. Some of these are geared toward the more conventional definition of productivity, while others are biased toward giving yourself a break so you can be happier, more creative, and more efficient in the long-term.

    (Note: If you’re finding you’re still working nonstop on weekends, check out our guide on how to be more productive to learn how to manage your time and maximize your workplace performance during the week.) You probably spend the majority of your workweek sitting at your desk or in conference rooms, slogging away at your day-to-day tasks. That’s why changing the types of activities you do on weekends can play a big role in both your level of happiness and productivity.

    1) Use different skills than you use during the week.

    Why? By changing the types of activities you’re doing, you can actually change the neurons firing inside your head. Using different neurons makes it easier for you to make different types of connections and associations. When composers get stuck writing a piece of music, for example, it’s not uncommon for them to switch to a different instrument to help get over their writer’s block. The different instrument helps them think about the “problem” in a different way.

    Laura Vanderkam, author of the book What Successful People Do Before Breakfast, agrees, saying your weekends need to feel different from your weekdays. She suggests rotating in different activities and hobbies that you don’t have time to do during the week. Celebrity Chef Marcus Samuelsson plays soccer on the weekends, for example. And billionaire Warren Buffet plays the ukulele. Making time for hobbies and non-work activities can foster creativity, relieve stress, and make you a happier, more successful person. If you wake up on Saturday with a list of 20 to-do list items, you’re setting yourself up for failure. (Or at least for a whole lot of stress.) The key is to prioritize so you get the most important things done, not all the things done. That way, you allow yourself the time to do them well. 

    2) Don’t try to do it all.

    One technique for prioritizing your to-do list is called the impact vs. effort analysis. Here’s how it works: Before you begin a task, ask yourself how much effort this task will take, and what the immediate impact will be. This’ll help you quickly figure out which of the items on your to-do list will have the most immediate impact in the least amount of time.

    For example, if you wake up on a Saturday and find your inbox is overflowing but you were hoping to bang out a blog post before lunch, run a quick impact vs. effort analysis in your head. You might realize that getting through 30+ emails takes a significant amount of effort, but actually has little impact on your success. Writing that blog post, on the other hand, requires more effort, but it carries a much higher impact.

    “The early bird catches the worm” isn’t a common phrase for nothing. Practically every article out there on productivity says waking up early can help you get more done—provided you went to bed at a reasonable hour the night before. If not, it may be better to catch up on sleep. (See #6.)

    3) Kick into gear first thing in the morning.

    Either way, when you do get up, try to get up and out of bed as soon as you can. Mornings tend to be slower and lend fewer distractions, making it easier for you to get things done more quickly.

    “I try to leave my house as early as possible,” says Leslie Ye, writer and editor for HubSpot’s Sales Blog . “That way, I get fresh air and don’t just sit on my couch all day.” “If I do an easy but rote chore right when I wake up, like clean the kitchen or empty the dishwasher, I’m usually really productive the rest of that day,” says HubSpot’s Director of Content Corey Wainwright. The idea is that, if you kick yourself into gear first thing in the morning, you don’t give yourself a chance to laze around—and you’ll put yourself in the mindset to get things done.

    Alternatively, if you don’t have anything specific if you need to get done, sometimes the best thing you can do for your future productivity is to give your mind a break.

    4) Give your mind a break.

    After all, time off is good for your productivity and performance at work. Almost nine out of ten American workers feel like time off increases their happiness, and 91% of business leaders believe their employees return from breaks recharged and ready to work more effectively.

    Ye likes to use weekends to get outside and get some fresh air. “Being in an office five days a week leaves me drained by Friday,” she says. “Taking the time to do an outside activity, even if it’s just taking a walk along the Charles River, helps me recharge and gives my mind a break.”

    Meditating is another way to release your mind from stressors—and it happens to have extraordinary health and productivity benefits, like increased focus, reduced stress, and greater creativity. Plenty of successful people—Jack Dorsey, Rupert Murdoch, and Oprah Winfrey— all meditate daily.

    If you’ve never meditated before, there are a few great apps that offer guided meditations, like Headspace (which gives you 10 free guided meditation sessions with the option of subscribing later) or Calm (which offers two-dozen guided meditation session ranging from a few minutes long to about 30 minutes long). Sleep deficit is a real thing. The downsides of sleep debt aren’t just that you’re tired all the time—chronic sleep debt raises the risk of obesity, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. And in the short-term, lack of sleep can have significant effects on the hippocampus—an area of the brain involved in memory creation and consolidation.

    5) Catch up on sleep.

    The good news is, if you find yourself getting fewer than the recommended seven to eight hours of sleep per night, you can make up that debt on weekends. One University of Chicago study followed a group of student volunteers who slept only four hours per night for six consecutive days. All of the changes they experienced during that period of sleep deprivation—from high blood pressure to fewer antibodies to insulin resistance—were reversed when the students made up the hours of sleep they’d lost. So if you missed, say, ten hours of sleep over the course of a week, then add three or four extra sleep hours on the weekend, and an extra one to two hours to nights the following week—until you’ve repaid all 10 of those hours.  Don’t make this a habit, though. Try to factor those seven to eight hours of sleep per night into your daily schedule as much as you can. (Read more about the science of sleep here.) 

    While you should use your workweek to nail the job you have, if you’re gunning for a promotion—or another job altogether—then why not use some of your weekend time learning the skills of the job you want? Learning a new skill or diving deeper into an area of specialization that’s growing might be just the ammunition you need to land that coveted position.

    6) Hone a skill for the job you want. 

    The skills you choose to work on will depend on the role you have your eye on. For example, if you want to move up as a digital marketer, you may want to improve your HTML/CSS skills, read up on trends in modern technology and emerging platforms, or brush up on your SEO knowledge. If you want to work for an agency, you’ll want to gain experience with cross-channel marketing, mobile marketing, and design. Want to be a CMO? Make sure you master personnel development—perhaps by taking on mentorship roles outside of work—as well as financial analysis and strategic thinking.

    For more ideas on which skills to work on, here’s a list of 13 valuable skills you can learn for free.

    Want to get your get her name out there as a thought leader and industry expert? Most media outlets allow people to submit authentic, original articles on topics that are relevant to their readership.

    7) Write a guest post for a publication.

    Each one has different requirements and submission instructions, though. While some require you to submit full articles, others accept topic pitches and are willing to work with you on an outline. To help you sort through these requirements, here are guest blogging instructions and guidelines for 11 top media outlets, including The New York Times, Business Insider, HBR.org, Mashable, and more.

    If you want to write more regularly, consider creating a personal blog. The social publishing platform Medium is a great place to publish personal blog posts because it comes with a built-in audience. This is especially helpful for people who don’t have time to do a lot of content promotion. (Here’s a beginner’s guide to Medium to get you started.) Weekends are for stepping away from the daily grind, spending time with friends and family, doing things that make you smile, and generally keeping your work-life balance in check. These things may not necessarily boost your company’s profits by 200% or make you CEO next week, but that doesn’t make them any less important.

    8) Pick at least one obligation-free day.

    But some of you might find it hard to step away from all those obligations—work-related or not—for the entire two-day period. If that sounds like you, then try to choose at least one of the two days to remain totally obligation-free. Saturday is my no-guilt, 100% work-free day,” says Ye. “I don’t do any errands, chores, or open my work computer—I save that for Sunday. Giving myself one day a week to do exactly what I want with no guilt makes it that much easier to tackle my chores and errands the next day.” I find it harder to work efficiently on the weekends, simply because it feels like I have so much more time. But time can fly, and all of a sudden it’s 5:00 p.m. and I just spent the last several hours in limbo between getting work done and procrastinating hardcore.

    9) If you choose to work, set a time limit.

    When you literally reserve blocks of time to get specific tasks done, it can be much easier to focus and get your work done quicker—leaving you with more time to actually enjoy your weekend.

    Emma Brudner, who manages HubSpot’s Sales Blog, uses laundry as a work timer when she works from home. ” I set mini-deadlines for myself corresponding to when I have to go downstairs to switch loads,” she says. “If I’m working on an article, I tell myself I’ll get to a certain point before the wash cycle ends. Then I set another goal for the dryer.”

    Tyler Littwin, a content strategist and graphic designer at HubSpot, agrees it’s important to set a limit on work when you’re at home. “If you work from home full-time (or on a regular basis), it’s really easy to let your work life bleed into your personal life. Maintaining a boundary is important for both halves of the equation.”

    Another handy trick? The laptop battery countdown. This one comes from Ginny Soskey, who manages HubSpot’s Marketing Blog. She suggests bringing your laptop with you to a remote location—like the coffee shop downstairs—without your computer charger. Then, aim to work until your computer dies. This is a way of gamifying your productivity, and it works: The pressure of a looming deadline can do wonders to keep you focused and working smarter.

    Didn’t get as much done as you wanted to in your designated block of time? Forgive yourself, and then move on. The more you set these hard time limits for yourself, the more efficient you’ll get during your designated work time. Think about all the things in your home that you haven’t touched in months or years, but can’t bear to throw away. Those shoes you never wear anymore. That unopened kitchen gadget you got for Christmas three years ago. All those old notes and receipts you haven’t looked at in years.

    10) Declutter your living spaces.

    A lot of us simply have too much stuff. Why not spend some time over the weekend getting rid of it, little by little? Decluttering your living spaces will make you feel a lot better—especially if you can give some of those items to charity, or sell them online.

    Donating is the easiest way to get rid of things without throwing it away. Start by finding the nearest Salvation Army or Goodwill or other local charitable organization. For the more expensive things—like that unopened kitchen gadget—try selling it. If you’re in the U.S., try using Craigslist for items you don’t want to ship, like furniture or other large items. For items you feel comfortable boxing and shipping, try eBay. You can also trade in old items like electronics on Amazon for Amazon credit. (For more ideas, here’s a great guide to decluttering your home from Lifehacker.)

    Billionaire Richard Branson said, “It is amazing how focusing your mind on issues like health, poverty, conservation and climate change can help to re-energize your thinking in other areas.”

    11) Volunteer.

    Serving others has a long list of intangible benefits, like pride, satisfaction, accomplishment, connections with others, strengthening your community, and improving the lives of others. Nothing helps put things into perspective—and can make your problems seem a little smaller—than helping those less fortunate. Plus, along with social benefits, research shows there’s a strong relationship between volunteering and physical health, too.

    Weekends are a great time to get involved in local and community volunteer events. If you don’t have a specific cause in mind, check out your local library, youth center, animal shelter, homeless shelter, or hospital to see if they’re in need of volunteers. VolunteerMatch.org is another great place to find good causes in your local community for a wide variety of time commitments. Sunday night blues are never fun. Instead of using those last few golden weekend hours to check through all your boring work emails, do something you’ll actually look forward to. For me, it’s watching Game of Thrones. For you, it might be reading a book, taking a run with your dog, meditating, or cooking a nice meal.

    12) Do something fun on Sunday night.

    Another idea is to take the time to reflect on the week gone by. Reflection is something you should be doing daily, but weekends are a great time to step back and think about what made you smile, what you’re grateful for, what you’ve accomplished, and how to make the next week even better.

    “This extends the weekend and keeps you focused on the fun to come, rather than on Monday morning,” writes Vanderkam in her book. That way, you’ll go to bed with a calmer mindset, unperturbed by all the stuff you have to do the next day.

    Why with Brand Advertising Group…it’s in the B.A.G.!

    by @ Fayette Heating and Air News / Blog


    ​By: Drew McLellan 

    Despite their best efforts to stand out, nearly every agency looks, sounds and acts just like every other one. We all think we have figured out how to differentiate ourselves using catchy tag lines and clever techniques, but from the outside looking in, it’s hard to tell the difference from one to the next. 

    Don’t believe me? See whether any of these phrases ring a bell: 

    • “We are a full-service integrated marketing agency.” • “We partner with our clients.” • “We’ve been in business for X years and have more than X years of experience.”

    Don’t Please Everyone All The Time -  New avenues of competition are part of the reason for this. Agencies are now commodities competing with freelancers and others who take advantage of low barriers to entry. Differentiating your agency from the masses requires clearly defined areas of expertise. Clients want specialists, not indistinguishable, cookie-cutter generalists. According to our research, one of the biggest factors for clients choosing an agency is industry-specific expertise, which they define as having 25-50% of the agency’s business in one industry. 

    Although most agencies struggle to stand out, differentiating isn’t as hard as it seems. These four strategies help the most successful agencies split from the pack and say something interesting, while other companies waste their breath trying to shout louder than everyone else. 

    Ideally, you need four areas of expertise or industry specialization. We all watched entire market evaporate in the recession of the late 2000’s, and agencies that served only single markets dried up with them. Standing on a four-legged stool lets you invest 25% of your business in different markets, meeting the 25-50% specialization criteria of your clients while insulating you from disaster should one niche dry up.

    Create a philosophy around how and why you do what you do. Take a specific position or point of view that puts you squarely on one side of an argument, then merchandise that position heavily to the client base to which you want to appeal.

    Specialization works even better when it extends beyond client selection and into services provided. Choose a specialization like SEO, public relations, branding, or digital media. Don’t do generalist work - do one thing better than everyone else. 

    Are you fully virtual and therefore less expensive than others? Do you have only senior-level executives on your team, ensuring that no client works with a rookie? Does everyone on the team have client-side experience? Make your structure stand out by building a company that doesn’t look like any other. 

    Differentiate Your Agency (for real)  1. Create a four-legged stool  2. Believe in something 3. Specialize further 4. Build a unique structure 

    A Different Avenue of Success  You can’t serve everyone and expect to stand out from the other agencies trying to do the same. Differentiate your business at every opportunity, and clients will flock to you for the specialized services you provide. This is how we make the BAG difference with each and every one of our clients.
