Creating New Agency Services: An Innovator’s Guide

May 8, 2024 | 9:45 am
Dive into the art and science of service design with agency innovation expert David C. Baker. Most agencies falter in that their services are based on habits, people, and clients of the past. There is no forward-thinking and market-centric consideration. Making matters worse, the process is often random, emotional, and agency-centric (what will be most “fun and interesting” to provide). This session will provide a step-by-step framework for identifying and developing new services that clients and prospects will be compelled to purchase – at far higher margins. You’ll learn how to continue tailoring your services to meet the new and evolving demands of clients as you establish long-term profitable relationships.
