Why we are building this..

Everyone knows that sales and marketing are important to business and we take that very seriously. Not everyone thinks about the impact that it has on society as a whole. When money is exchanged for a solution both parties increase their value. When that value is compounded and ripples out to the world we can truly make a difference. 

Our mission is to help every business in the world to make data driven decisions to increase their exposure, their revenue and their value.

How we are building this..

It's not easy to compete and make an impact. We have to constantly keep an open mind and adjust our strategies and our offerings to fulfill the ever-changing needs of our customers. 

  • We listen to our customers, our employees, our friends, and our family. 

  • We learn from everyone and everything we can.

  • We are transparent. Ask us anything and we will answer openly and honestly. 

  • We are consistent. We want to move fast and we want to grow, but we know it is more important to show up every day and consistently perform at the simple daily tasks that move us in the right direction. 

What we are doing..

We are evolving as a company. Right now our focus is helping entrepreneurs find the perfect marketing agency for them because we know that's not always us and each business has unique customers and unique marketing needs. Check out our Competitions.

We are also helping entrepreneurs succeed on their own by teaching them how to market themselves on Instagram and Facebook and get the best possible return on their investment. Check out our daily training videos on Facebook and the Playbook.

Doesn't PPC just show short term skill/results? How do you know that they (winning agency) will also be good at long tail marketing (SEO...)?

During the competition it is great that you get quick results from PPC marketing. Lots of data and sales result from this, however the true test of a Compete Agency Competition is WHICH AGENCY UNDERSTANDS YOU? In a very short amount of time who can connect with your potential customers? Who instinctively KNOWS your audience, your product and how to make them take action?

Compete Agency experts have vetted Competing agencies to make sure that they know and understand the fundamentals of marketing. If they can’t help with longterm growth, they wouldn’t be in the competition.

The true purpose of the competition is to make sure that winning agency is the best fit for the host. They get you. They understand your market. This is something impossible to prove before they market for you. We have seen time and time again that this directly translates to their ability to provide quality long tail marketing like SEO. You don't have to explain to them what keywords to go after and how to write because they get it.....

If I lose, will it tarnish my reputation?

Absolutely not. Compete.Agency's goal is to minimize risks and maximize rewards, so every competitor remains anonymous unless they win the competition. 


Host | Competitor

How do you choose the winner?

At Compete.Agency, data is king, and will always dictate the winner. 


Host | Competitor

What if it's a close race?

There have been situations where it has been a close competition, but the data always reveals one clear winner. Data don't lie.


Host | Competitor

How do you find competitors?

This all depends on the Host and the type of marketing partner they want to work with for the long term. Sometimes a Host will prefer a local partner vs remote one; or perhaps a freelancer vs an agency.

Once we've defined what kind of marketing partner the Host wants, we get to work on our rigorous vetting process. If we can tell that an agency won't serve your best interest, we won't invite them to compete.

Is there a limit to how many competitions I can do at once?

HOSTS:

We recommend that Hosts only run 1 competition at a time. This keeps the data clean and prevents any confusion or duplicate data sets. 

COMPETITORS:

Most agencies compete for 1 Host at a time. However, we understand that marketing agencies come in all shapes and sizes. If your team can handle it, and you can produce great results, you're welcome to compete for as many as you'd like, simultaneously.


Host

As a business owner, what am I responsible to provide for the competitions?

The best competitions typically include:

  1. An enticing agreement for prospective marketers

  2. A good amount of high-quality, existing assets for the marketers to use, like images and videos

  3. Most competitions require access to Facebook and Google Analytics

  4. An easy chair and your beverage of choice so you can kick back, relax, and watch the marketing magic unfold.


Host

Will I have contact with the competitors prior to the competition?

Scooter McGavin or Rik Buckets can answer this question.

 

Host

Can't I just run a competition by myself?

Sure. It can be done, but it's a heck of a lot of work. We have refined our process and assembled a team of professionals that will do all the work for you. We find and vet the best agencies, organize and manage the competition, and analyze the results to ensure a fair and effective competition.

How is this different from an RFP (Request For Proposal)?

Compete.Agency's process is similar to a RFP, but so much better. We took the best parts of the RFP process and left the rest.

In our opinion, the typical RFP process isn't a good way to establish the best marketing partnership. Long, drawn-out deadlines; subjectivity/strong opinions that don't serve the business' best interests; and the sheer time and cost associated for the marketing partner are just a few downsides to the RFP process, that, with Compete.Agency we circumvent completely. 

We are all about maximizing results while minimizing risks. This means that . . .

What if our partnership doesn't end up panning out?

One of the many reasons why we arrange 3-month agreements (as opposed to the industry standard of 6-12 month agreements) is so that both parties can get to know each other and develop a strong working relationship without the pressure of a lengthy contract looming over your heads.

In the unlikely event your relationship doesn't pan out, you're under no obligation to renew the agreement once the 3 months are up.
