Do you have bandwidth?
If you work at an agency, chances are this word gets thrown around all the time. Whether you’re in a resourcing meeting or discussing who can take on that new client, bandwidth is something we always need and want more of…but how do you get it?
It all starts with addressing the elephant in the room–how your agency operates.
Are you just surviving when you could be thriving? With the constant need to deliver work on time, on budget, and meet client expectations, it can be easier to sit back and settle into survival mode instead of taking the time needed to fix what's holding you back from growing and scaling your agency.
If this sounds like you, you’re not alone! We know you don’t have tons of time to dedicate to a complete operations overhaul, so we’re making it easy for you to learn what you need to succeed.
Bandwidth is our free virtual summit (think of it like a crash course on productivity and profitability), where you’ll hear from agency owners, operations experts, and project management pros who’ve all been there and done that. Tune in and get all the practical tools, tips, and tricks your agency needs to get more productive and profitable once and for all.
And did we mention…it's free? As if you need more convincing!
If you’ve got a few hours to spare (four, to be exact), here are a few reasons why you need to attend Bandwidth.
1. Identify inefficiencies that you didn’t even know are holding you back
You may not know what your efficiencies are, but we do and your clients likely do, too. You can get back the bandwidth you so desperately need, and guess what? You don’t have to reinvent the wheel either. When your business is running like a well-oiled machine, you can focus on the things that matter most. Learn from the best and brightest agencies and experts about how to ensure you’re not missing out on billable hours, why understanding resourcing and utilization is so critical as you scale, how process leads to profit, and much more. We’ll teach you how to solve the most common inefficiency challenges agencies face today so you can grow and scale with complete confidence.

2. Figure out why you aren’t as profitable as you could be (and how you can be!)
Setting yourself up for future success starts today. We all know missed deadlines and burnout can often be what agencies are known for, and whether you like it or not, your bottom line suffers. Profitable agencies that are ready to enter the next stage of growth have a clear understanding of what their teams are working on, where bottlenecks are, who has the bandwidth (wink, wink) to take on more work, and where they’re leaving money on the table. Are you one of them? If not, we can get you there! Learn how to get visibility into the current workflows your team utilizes today, to help drive efficiency and strategic business decisions that will ensure you’re set up to be as profitable as possible.

3. Learn the signs that it's time to say goodbye to a client
Breakups can be tough, and breakups with clients are no different. Why would anyone ever want wave business goodbye? Growth often requires breaking free of relationships that may be holding you back from being the success you’ve always dreamed you’d be.
When building out your strategy for growth, you need to evaluate which clients are a long-term commitment, versus merely a quick stop and drop-in on your road to success. Taking a good look at your client roster with your agency growth goals in mind might make you realize it's time to create space for new clients that are a much better fit for the agency you want to build and be. At Bandwidth, we’ll give you all the tools you need to determine what signs to look out for, and how to know when it's time to say goodbye to the old, and onwards and upwards with the new.

4. You want to know how the best in the business build, scale, and retain an all-star team
What are the most successful agencies doing when it comes to their biggest asset—their team? As the future of work changes and with The Great Resignation well upon us, building, scaling, and retaining a solid team can feel like more of a challenge than ever before. We all know that as you grow, going from a lean team to multi-functioning departments doesn’t happen overnight.
At Bandwidth, learn first-hand how to build a company culture that retains talent and is set up for success, today. When you have a clear picture of resourcing, who’s working on what, how much time is spent on certain tasks, and where there may be gaps, you can better determine how to best allocate your resources internally, know when to hire and avoid burnout along with its friend, sky-high turnover.
