Agency owners have a lot on their plates. The market is changing, and it’s happening fast. Stuck between freelancer rates rising and client budgets dwindling, we’re seeing more and more agencies closing their doors. Not to mention the pressure we feel from low-priced international competitors. But fear not! By positioning your firm correctly, clearly defining your rates, ideal clients, and services, we think you will thrive.
