The New Agency Model: SaaS + Professional Services (Limited Seating)

May 8, 2024 | 8:30 am
Expect a lively discussion as we look at the future of the agency model. 

Product was launched last year by HUGE founder and former CEO, Aaron Shapiro – inspired by the capabilities of AI. He has built an entirely new agency model that automates much of what it provides – providing greater value to clients and requiring far fewer people to operate.

How Product is structured to engage clients and orchestrate projects is quite different from past agency models. Clients subscribe to various aspects of their SaaS AI-based platform, on top of which marketing services are added. To help further improve the efficiency of their operation, much of the backend has been automated. In fact, Aaron often references, “It’s more of a software sell to clients now.”

Important: This session has limited seating for in-person attendees and will require advance signup. Everyone will receive an email (mid-April) with the instructions to sign up.
