Chuck Meyst has been in sales all his life, from his childhood bike route to CEO and founder of AgencyFinder.com, a matchmaking service for agencies.
Chuck and Drew discuss the value in finding the right business matches for your agency. They cover everything from measuring the quality of potential match to how to stand out and create value as an agency.
The interview begins here: http://buildabetteragency.com/chuck-meyst/
Some highlights include:
Have a clear focus of your goals and priorities going into a business match, and you will be a better client. Create something of value for potential clients, and you will be a better match as an agency. Chuck describes strategies to achieve this near minute 11:00 of our interview.
At minute 20:00, Chuck explains how the word “sales” is not something to fear, but something to embrace, and how to create maximum impact from it.
At minute 28:00, Agencies make themselves valuable and different by being good listeners and asking pertinent questions to their clients.
At minute 37:00, Chuck describes the “power index,” AgencyFinder’s measurement tool of new business’ readiness. This index is powerful because it serves as a regulatory tool for an agency’s quality.
At minute 50:00, make your agency available for potential matches. Chuck highlights simple ways to do this, without adding extra work to your agency.
That’s a wrap folks!
