My partner who is a long time friend of mine is a great marketing companion and sales guy. He's also very motivating to work with as our goals are aligned. We started our company from the ground up a year ago. It's fresh I know, and before we went to seek clients we made sure we had everything together. We created content for video commercial ad's, produced an Instagram account with original and manipulated content. We split up the work, I run the gram, he runs the twitter, I do the backend facebook and ad setup, he does the content building for reaching out to clients. It's a solid formula so far and we have a lot of highend visuals. I feel as though it's only a matter of time someone wants to work with us.
Now... In terms of getting clients we started out boot strapping, We did research on a company that was local, analyzed their content and create audits to meet. We got meetings but couldn't close a deal. We then developed and tested different strategies. We began using Instagram DM and have recently got a connection with a large corporate brand who we emailed and are waiting back to hear from after pitching our project idea. We are also continuing to call larger brands who we want to do with with. As for work we are focusing on video production services for social media along with well designed ad's for content creation. We can also manage their accounts.
I feel like we are doing it right but can be doing more. I've been pulling overnighters like back in undergrad trying to crack code, break pattern and figure S#!t out so we can win this. I'm not sure if I have a question for you all but more so advice or inspiration on how we can get more done, our work in the forefront and land big deals. We do a fair share of branding for our company as well.
Looking forward to hearing back from folks on and tips or advice. I think time is our biggest commodity by far because we both have day jobs. I work three days out the week and the rest I do from home remotely as I already work in digital marketing for a company running their ad's. This gives me first hand experience and the ability to learn and build my brand while offsite.
