That being said, it’s important to understand that soft skills are only 50% of the final product that is you. You need to get good at what you’re going to be offering as “professional” services.

  • Build landing page
  • Designing ads
  • Setup social media platforms
  • Create powerful copywriting and content

Just make sure to have rules as far as if a client quits early or scales up with their requirements. The next pricing model is the percentage of spending. This makes sure your agency will receive the correct compensation from your hard work. You can also check our digital marketing agency pricing guide to find out which model fits best for you.
