His marketing agency was like everyone else’s: doing anything for anyone.
Fast forward to today, he’s happily married, has four kids, has fewer employees, tight relationships with partner firms and a thriving business that’s helped 100s of banks and credit unions transform the way they do their marketing and sales.
How did he do it?
Compared to his first years, James Robert says, “I am healthier. I am happier. I am calmer.”
As I’ve said a million times before, I’m a big advocate of marketing agencies (really, any service provider) focusing on a vertical market. Unfortunately, very few really commit to a market. Some dabble. But, dabbling doesn’t produce the type of results James Robert Lay has – for himself and his clients.
For anyone that’s looking for some inspiration, James Robert Lay shared the exact steps he took to build his firm, the Digital Growth Institute into a small, but very successful niche training, consulting and services firm. He’s also an excellent communicator and shared a bunch of frameworks that will help you communicate too.
Hear James’ full story on the latest episode of Agency Spotlight on the Ground Up podcast.
