Great conversation

Great conversation

Discuss and learn from other amazing agency owners. A big part of what makes Agency Bites so special is the agency owners we’re able to bring together. We connect people that have something in common – whether it’s their location, size of the agency, or the challenges they’re facing.

Top insights

Top insights

As well as working with hundreds of agencies, we also run the largest survey of independent agency owners in the UK – BenchPress. Run annually, the survey and report highlight key trends, stats and averages for agency owners to benchmark their performance. Join us at Agency Bites to hear the very latest findings from BenchPress.

The best start to your day

The best start to your day

Our events are normally in the morning, giving you a chance to start your day with a dose of inspiration. We find doing them in the morning means you’ve got a clearer head and you’re less likely to get pulled into the day-to-day running of your agency. We suggest blocking some time out immediately after to digest what you’ve learned and turn your ideas into actions.

What other people say

I was fortunate to be invited to an Agency Bites session with Rory. I had a thoroughly fascinating morning. Left and spent the next 48hrs completely re-jigging and re-framing my sales funnel. So much gain and insight. A great way to start the morning!

Our next topic -

Maintaining a healthy profit margin

Our first BenchPress report of 2023 revealed that average gross profit has reduced to 40% (for £1m+ agencies) and to 36% (for agencies under £1m). This means agencies have fallen even further behind the target gross profit of 50% or more. Many are ‘at risk’, with a gross profit percentage of 30% or less. 

In periods of economic uncertainty, it’s more important than ever to maintain a healthy profit margin, which is why our first Agency Bites sessions of 2023 will explore this important topic in more detail than ever before. 

Join us to discover: 

  • The five levers you can pull to increase your profit
  • How the top-performing agencies achieve a gross profit of 60%+
  • Simple changes to increase your profitability right away

Each workshop is from 9.30am - 10.30am. Sign up below for the date that best suits you:
