You can build the business of your dreams. I'm living proof.
I'm Jeff Sauer, founder of Jeffalytics. I worked for 5 years building my agency from 5 to 50 people, learning the hard way how to multiply growth by over 500%. During this time I was named CIO of the Year, founded an industry association called MnSearch and won the 32 under 32 award in the Twin Cities.
I've been in the trenches recruiting new hires, putting out client fires and building a profitable agency. My agency grew so rapidly we made the Inc. 5000 list five times from 2010-2014. Throughout it all, our company maintained a great culture and won numerous best places to work awards.
When my agency grew so fast, I learned how important it is to find the right talent for growing an agency business. In 2014 I created the first ever digital marketing certificate program at the University of St. Thomas to train the next generation of digital marketers.
I struggled through the transition from full-time employment to freelancer to building a strong team. I know what it feels like to be overwhelmed by the entrepreneurial journey. That is why I developed the Agency Jumpstart Course to help entrepreneurs build smarter, more profitable businesses.
From one entrepreneur to another, I toast to your upcoming success.

So you want to grow a healthy business.
Basically, you have 3 options:
Option #1: Figure it out yourself
If you are stubborn like me, your first instinct is to figure it out by yourself.
You search Google for answers to your questions (i.e. "Can I afford to add employees?") and get annoyed with the contradictory results and blog posts written by people who clearly don't understand your industry.
Or you attend conferences to rub elbows with other business owners. That $2,000 trip to San Diego is worth it when you get to commiserate with other business owners over the "free" happy hour beers in some ballroom with cruise ship carpeting that hosted a medical tourism conference yesterday and a wedding this weekend.
You spend too much time on the phone with your accountant or attorney, seeking their opinion about your business. They keep on saying nice things about your business, so you must be doing something right. Or are they just saying nice things because you are paying them by the hour?
There will be doubts in your mind of whether you have created a healthy business or if you have just gotten lucky. These doubts will stay with you from now until you reach "retirement" (but you may never retire, because you love the work so much).
After years of long hours, you will eventually decide to invest in an "expert" opinion to give you peace of mind.
Option #2: Hire a business coach
Here's what I did. After several years of winging it with my business, I finally decided to seek professional help. This came in the form of a consultant that charged us $6,000 a day to talk about our business (we talked him down from his normal rate of $9,000).
For our multi-million dollar agency, this was money well spent. We talked, we found clarity, and we worked through answers to our most important questions.
It was worth every penny.
Option #3: Make an investment in your business today
Not every business is ready to hire an expensive business coach, and not every business needs one. If you are a freelancer or small agency, there is no need to invest in a $6,000 a day consultant.
What you really need is an operating framework to use while you grow your business. You need to dedicate time to focusing on your business, and you need an advocate to support you along the way.
I have structured the Agency Jumpstart Course to help you through each step of your agency journey, and I have priced the course to be an affordable investment for any agency owner.

The Agency Jumpstart Course consists of 5 modules
Each module guides you through the most important phases of your business
Topic 2: Business development
Topic 3: Filling your funnel
Agencies have 99 problems, but business development shouldn’t be one.
This module provides insights in how you can build a perpetual customer machine.
Learn how to find high paying customers and weed out the bad ones. Hear case studies of battle-tested strategies for business development, and gather tactics that you can apply right away.
Have you ever wanted to follow the step-by-step blueprint of a 5-time Inc. 5000 award winning digital marketing agency? Then you need to pay attention as I share wisdom that you can apply over and over again throughout your career.
Topic 4: Growing your agency using process
Topic 5: Growing your agency with people
In an agency, human capital is your biggest expense, but it is also your greatest asset.
This module gives you a framework for making good on your biggest investment: people.
During this module we'll be covering topics like
* When should you hire employees?
* How do you project employee salaries and how does this affect profitability?
* How do you maintain company culture while growing?
The steps you take in developing your agency will make a huge difference as you scale.
This module provides a reality-check for when you should be making these decisions in your business.
Topic 6: Business planning
Topic 7: Business operations
Anyone can find clients, but it is a lot harder to build a business that lasts.
This module gives you the building blocks to graduate from fledgling freelancer to thriving business owner.
What is the most profitable part of your business? If you were hit by a bus, would your company go under?
Learn how to structure your business for maximum profitability, the financial realities of running an agency, and strategies for exiting your business down the line.
Topic 8: Don't get your butt kicked
Not every idea we have is a good idea. In fact, most ideas are not worth our time.
This module gives you a decision-making framework for how to evaluate each opportunity that comes your way.
As agencies grow, the temptation will be to expand beyond the zone of comfort and outstretch expertise. Are these ideas the future of your business or the beginning of the end?
Learn how to make the right decisions for your business, adjust your state of mind, and increase your chances of sustainable success.

FREELANCER MODULES will get you:
Are you ready to ditch your 9-5 and start freelancing?
Then you should get the FREELANCER MODULES of the Agency Jumpstart Course. Start your freelancing business right.
I learned more in this course than I have pretty much all the other courses I’ve taken in my life. The great thing about this course is that everything is actionable. It’s not all theory, it’s all actionable and Jeff makes it very easy to take action with the handouts and spreadsheets.
The biggest thing that the Agency Jumpstart Course saved me from was instead of entering into a partnership with another freelancer, I decided to remain independent. Based on what I learned from the course, and the personal feedback I got from Jeff, I broke off that relationship amicably. It saved me from making irreversible mistakes with my business. That alone was worth a lot of money that I could have wasted in the future.
And if you are worried about the investment, this course can easily save you tens of thousands of dollars of mistakes in the future. Depending on how big those mistakes are, it could even be hundreds of thousands of dollars. I feel confident in saying that it can save you tens of thousands of dollars over just a few years.
Jeff’s course is like getting an MBA in running an Agency. Intense, thorough, rich in detail, and taught by someone who has lived the agency life and started and scaled a successful agency. This is not theoretical knowledge – these are hard-learned lessons, taught by an entrepreneur who is excellent at teaching.
Seriously, this course is not for the faint of heart. If you are truly interested in becoming a freelancer, starting an agency, or growing an existing agency, this is the course for you – it’s probably the best investment in yourself you can make. You’ll learn details on the best business models; how much to charge clients; what clients you should go after (and how to say no to the 70% of clients you shouldn’t be going after); how to differentiate yourself in the market; how and when to hire employees, etc. There is so much great information in this course.
I can’t recommend Jeff’s Agency Course highly enough. Even though I’ve run businesses for years, I learned a lot and wish I had had a course like this earlier in my career. Take this course – you will not regret it!
Your questions about Agency Course
You will be enrolled in the Agency Jumpstart Course as soon as your purchase is completed. Lessons will be delivered via email for each of the 8 modules, and you can study at your own pace.
Each module consists of two weeks of video lessons, followed by a third week for reflection. The two weeks of videos will each have concepts that you can immediately apply to your business during the reflection week.
This course is designed for accountability and success. It is important to participate in a timely manner (following the lessons as scheduled) to maximize the value you receive.
We recommend our students to dedicate one hour per weekday (during non-reflection weeks) to complete course materials.
Yes. Lesson 4 of the course covers the importance of serving a specific market. This could mean you decide to serve the B2B or B2C market. Or you could select a certain industry niche. Or a specific service niche.
In this lesson we evaluate niche opportunities for digital agencies, and provide a framework for you to evaluate each opportunity ahead of you.
Throughout the course, you will learn how to position your business in a powerful way in order to maximize your profit and the value you deliver to clients.
We have an entire module dedicated to business operations. We cover how to onboard new clients and add process and how to set expectations.
Another video discusses the importance of client relationships and how to focus on the long term. The next lesson focuses on how to use client successes as case studies and marketing materials to draw in more clients.
And we round it out by providing a lesson on cash flow and how important it is to agency survival. We provide models you can use to project your own cash flow.
Yes. The answer will depend on the employee’s salary and their role within your organization. We examine different scenarios for projecting employee headcounts against cash-flows based on your business goals.
Yes. When you’re trying to scale, carefully choosing your team members and the roles they play within your organization is critical. Who you hire will be contingent upon what your goals are for the business. In this course you will identify your goals first so that you’ll be prepared to know who your next hire is and why.
We cover all aspects of building a team from first hire through filling out your entire organization chart. Lessons 29 and 31 are particularly helpful in the business planning process.
