What is a social media marketing agency and is it really possible to make 6 or 7 figures doing it? Let’s find out!
We’ve talked about almost every side hustle out there — dropshipping, affiliate marketing, flipping, you name it! — and today we are going to talk about SMMAs. As mentioned, SMMA stands for social media marketing agency. I actually own a marketing agency myself! In addition to social media though, we do other types of marketing such as traditional, architectural/design, and of course, digital.
I often get asked, “Adrian, should I build an SMMA?”. In comparison to when I entered the marketing agency world, the script has been changed. Apparently, there are these courses that are being sold that will teach you to sell to a business. Don’t get me wrong, that’s important! But what good do these courses do if they don’t teach you how to actually do the marketing itself?
These popular SMMA courses don’t sit well with me because the customer, or student in this case, should never be tricked out of value. These courses may teach you how to get the client but they fail to teach how to meet the client’s needs. The marking business is a people industry. You cannot automate real relationships and connections with customers.
Lucky for you, I’m here to teach you the right way.
First, we need to have a serious talk; with great power comes great responsibility. What I’m about to show you how to do works. In fact, it is the most reliable type of business model I use. As long as you do a good job, you’ll have happy clients and a nice payout.
I want you to make a promise to me if you decide to do this side hustle. If you get to the point where a local business is offering to pay you $1,000 a month to run ads for them (which is pretty realistic), I need you to promise me that you won’t take advantage of them. In fact, I want you to work your butt off and deliver them even more value than you are being paid to give. This way, you will always have clients and we can change the negative feelings about SMMAs into positive ones!
