Agency Empire takes a comprehensive approach to scaling your business. Although many marketing tactics are used, Ty believes cold emails will put you in front of the people you want to get in front of. Why does he put so much value in cold emails? Because when done right, they will make it easy to close the deal. They need to be personal to the receiver. Take the time to learn something about the person. Make sure they notice that you researched them. Second, ensure your offer is excellent and mitigates risk. Build confidence in your company through testimonials and case studies. The purpose of the cold email is to secure a call with your target audience. Ty guarantees that you can scale your agency to where you want by following these steps.
Another tactic Ty uses is an email campaign. Don’t just send out one cold email and be done. Email a sequence of emails, including a LinkedIn connection. Show your potential client that you have a fantastic offer that can scale their agency. Know your client and what will speak to them. How are you going to mitigate risk to entice them? These are all key components of the Agency Empire model. Listen to the One Big Tip podcast as Ty Frankel shares the tips and tricks he used to put Agency Empire on the map and scale your business.
