Video Agencies:

How to take on $12,000 more projects EVERY MONTH

(without increasing headcount or outsourcing work)
 

SPOILER ALERT:
Your video agency isn’t underperforming because of the quality of your work

..it’s because, every day of every week, you (and your team) are wasting copious amounts of time that could and SHOULD be spent doing great creative work and generating new business.

Instead, that time is spent putting out fires, duplicating work, searching for files and dealing with disorganisation in your team.

Does this sound like you?

  • You run, own or manage a video agency
  • You want to DELIGHT your customers with awe-inspiring video content but constantly come up against time restrictions.
  • You want to have a happy, focused team that will run through brick walls for your business.
  • You’ve tried a bunch of tools to manage your process but none work in the way you need them to and they aren’t made for YOUR business.
  • You’re sick to the back teeth of your clients getting a crappy experience – when you work so hard to win them.
  • You look in the mirror and know that your client experience doesn’t match the quality of your work.
  • You’re pissed off with your team using their own siloed methods for managing projects, meaning well but only creating a mess.
  • You try to get your clients to work using your tools or processes but it always reverts back to email and file sharing.
  • You’re exhausted, burnt out and never know where video projects are up to without asking someone else.
  • You’re the boss but you don’t feel in control.
  • You’re missing deadlines.
  • You’re making great videos but your clients aren’t happy with the process.
  • Your business doesn’t run properly without YOU doing stuff.
  • You want personal freedom – but whenever you try to take time away, you get a barrage of emails and requests to deal with so you can never switch off.
  • Your dream of selling the business and retiring on a sailboat is slipping away

You’re not alone…

“I knew we should be achieving more based on the quality of our videos, but didn’t have time to spend on sales and marketing.”

“I had no way of knowing where each project was up to without actually interrupting and asking my team.”

We were in the exact same position…

Matt Byrom

I’m Matt Byrom, founder of Wyzowl animated video agency.

When I started out we were speaking with clients by email and phone (video calling wasn’t popular back then). We saved files on a shared hard drive and our computers. We discussed things internally and made things work!

But as we grew this quickly turned into organised (but mostly unorganised) chaos! We didn’t have clarity over what had been agreed, by who and when. This meant we were chasing around for answers, files and project information. This resulted in us working harder than we needed to on the admin side of things which meant we had less time for creative work.

“Something had to change”

Running a video production company without the right systems, processes and tools is like expecting an orchestra to play a symphony without sheet music or a conductor. You might have lots of talented artists, each with their unique skills – but without organisation and leadership, all you get is an uncoordinated mess. There might be moments when it comes together briefly – but, in the end, improvisation and individuality only ever lead to chaos.

So, we started looking for tools to manage our projects. There was an abundance of tools all with a comprehensive set of features. But most importantly for us… None of the tools excelled at working with clients and none of them were made for video agencies so they didn’t fit our way of working.

“We built a tool that was perfect for our video agencies needs”

We built our own system so we could keep all our client communication, projects, tasks, files and information in one place. We wanted a system that our team and clients would actually love to use. A tool that would work for our video agency and give us all the information we needed when we wanted it.

We created a tool that acts as the backbone of our business. It’s helped us manage over 4,000 total projects. It means our team can spend 95% of their time on creative work as we have 1 simple place to do everything else, quickly! And it means we can find everything when we need it. So no matter if someone is off our out of the office, anyone can pick up their work as all the information is to hand.

This has been the secret to how we’ve grown our agency and why we can run our business without stress. And now I want to share it with you…

And today….

We’ve created over 3,000 videos
We start 30 – 50 new videos every month
We have clear visibility of all our work
Our team of 20 runs with little management input
We create videos for some of the world’s most well known brands
