In my 15 years of being an agency business coach, I’ve come in contact with many different creative businesses. Time and again, I’ve seen that those agencies that understand how to properly manage client relationships consistently earn better profits, win (and retain) more of their ideal customers, and build a business that allows employees and owners alike to enjoy life outside the office too.

We train ourselves and our staff to be better at our jobs (e.g. design training, SEO training or "how to be a better writer") so why don't we give the same attention to developing skills around client and account management?  Assuming as staff move up the agency ladder, they will naturally be good account managers is a BIG expensive mistake to make!

The cost of acquiring new clients can be 10 times that of keeping and growing an existing customer and the key to this is great account management, so if managing clients is part of your job and you are tasked with retention and growth of clients then download this FREE book on Improving your client management skills - it is a must read!

By the end of reading this book you will have 5 strategies for attracting & retaining your ideal clients and growing your agency in a sustainable way.

About Rob

I have 30+ years of commercial business experience. After beginning my career by working in various blue chip companies, I took the leap In 1991 to start my own marketing, PR and design agency. Over the next 11 years, I grew the business into an award-winning agency with 25 staff and revenues in excess of £1.5m. In 2002, I sold the business and then retrained to become a coach and mentor. Since forming Da Costa Coaching in 2007, I have helped over 450 agencies to grow in a sustainable, profitable and enjoyable way.

Why work with Rob?

Jim Gilroy

Our agency has a very specific growth target for the next three years. We engaged Rob to help us break down our target into manageable monthly actions, to sharpen our competitive edge and to crack the whip so that we remain accountable. It's still early days but already the sessions that Rob has chaired have yielded positive outcomes - most importantly an engaged management team who are focused on delivering a series of tasks towards fulfilling our quarterly targets and annual goal.

Amanda Williams

We were about to start the planning process for the year and wanted to work a business coach to be our conscience to ensure our plans became reality and actually make decisions! Rob is very straight forward (and sometimes tells us things we don't want to hear!). He provides sound advice in a clear and easy to understand way. He has a great insight into the stresses and strains of running an agency.

We’ve worked with Rob for many years. Originally when my agency was very small - to help create (and keep on track) a business plan. Now he works with some of my team as well as the Directors, Rob challenges our thinking and provides different solutions to put into the mix. We’d happily recommend him.
