Why You Should Niche Down ft. Jason Swenk with Alex Quin

Episode Description

We’ve teamed up with ManyChat’s Conversations 2019 as the official podcast sponsor! For our fifth episode, we sit down with legendary agency owner and the host of the Smart Agency Masterclass Podcast, Jason Swenk. Jason discusses how he became an “accidental” agency owner and the challenges he faced. On top of his experiences, Jason and Alex Quin go in on the importance of differentiating your agency from the others, focusing on a niche, and the value of understanding your client. If you currently own or are planning to own a marketing agency then this podcast will be extremely helpful in understanding the nuances and challenges of doing so.

Entrepreneurial Wisdom Nuggets:

  • You don’t need to know or do everything, understand what you lack and hire for it.
  • Don’t be a “me too” agency, know what you want and focus on that and you will reap the rewards of doing so.
