How to Start A Digital Marketing Agency As a Beginner in 2019 (Your FIRST $10k+/month)

– You see people like me
doing consulting services and making money from it. Would you like to learn how
you can do the same thing? Hey everyone, I’m Neil Patel, and today I’m going to teach you how to create your own
digital marketing agency. (upbeat music) Before we get started,
make sure you subscribe to this channel and if you’re on YouTube, also click the alarm bell. That way, when I release
more videos like this, and also go live on
YouTube or even Facebook or LinkedIn, you’ll get notified. Question for you: Do you want to know the exactly process I took to start a agency? It will works today if
you want to know it, leave a comment with Yes below. If you don’t want to know
it, leave a comment with No. The first thing you need to do is go and find companies. Everyone thinks oh I
need to buy this course, or this service that teaches me how to create an agency. Yo don’t need to do any of that. I’ll break it down in the
most simplistic fashion: You go online and find
companies that you can help. That’s the first step. And it’s as simple as going
to site like Crunchbase and looking for all the
venture-funded companies. If someone raised a lot of money, what does that mean? They got to spend it. And they got to spend
it on people like you who can help them grow
their traffic and sales. Now you may be like, hmmm, I
don’t have a lot of experience. I don’t have a lot of case studies. I’m not going to be able to
get a lot of these customers. I’ll teach you how to do that as well. Step two. Now that you found a list of companies that you can potentially help, I want you to go through their website and really look at it and be like, what can you do to help em? Don’t just say oh I can
help em with their SEO, I can help them with their paid ads. I want you to really break down everything that they’re doing
wrong and how to fix it, like line item by line item. The more detailed you are, the
better off you’re going to be. If you don’t get detail,
this isn’t going to work. Step three, Eliminate all of the
companies on that list that you can’t provide
enough feedback for. If you can’t provide pages
and pages of feedback, you’re not going to do well. You need to break all of that down, so then that way, people
can get all of that insight. When they get that insight,
they’re much more likely to hire you. They want the meat, they want the guts. The next step, I want you to email the CEO,
the founder of that company, the head of marketing,
your sheet breaking down everything that they’re doing wrong. And at the end, even tell em, sorry to be blunt, I just
want to help you grow. If you need help implementing any of this, let me know. I don’t mind working something
out and helping you guys out. If you send out five of those emails, you’ll get one to two
customers like clockwork. If you’re not, that means
you’re not sending it out to the right people, in which these people aren’t raising millions of dollars. If they haven’t raised at least
one to two million dollars, you’re wasting your time emailing them. Also on that note, when
you’re emailing them, you need to keep following up as well. In many cases, I’ll email
them, I’ll text them, I’ll call em. I’ll do whatever it takes
to make sure that they read and see that document. And you’ll find that some
people will be offended, some people will like you,
and some people will hire you. But it really is one to two out of five will hire you as long
as you’re sending out really thorough emails. The email doesn’t have to be pretty, doesn’t have to have all
these crazy cool graphics. It can just be basic emails breaking down what they’re doing wrong, how to fix it. And when you lay it out step by step, where they can do it
without even hiring you, they’re more likely to hire
you because they’re like, oh, you’ll send me everything. I trust him. I can see his game plan. Why not just hire him? I’m strapped for time. Because the moment someone
raises venture capital, they got to move fast. And that’s your advantage. That’s how you create a
digital marketing agency and get your first few clients and get over $10,000 a month in income. If you like this video, make

  13. Neil Patel…you ROCK. I'm a new comer to the digital world with 20yrs backed up experience in marketing and your content is spot on for people like myself born in the 70s 😊 I'm a dedicated subscriber, your content did the job to convert a traditional marketer to the new era of digital. Having said that though, MARKETING in any form never changed. So for the newbies, PLEASE remember, whether Traditional or Digital, you're most important asset is your CORE customer and understanding his/her H&A followed by strategic approach BEFORE playing with tools to attract or engage. Thank you Neil, keep up the amazing videos.

  35. Great video! You basically summarized something that would basically take a whole course
