Create Content that Creates Revenue

“I want to learn from people who have done it and every AMI workshop is taught by someone who teaches from experience and shares their tough bumps along the way, as well as the path to success!”

Content. It may well be the most over-used word in agencies today (if you count synergy, partner and win/win as givens!) but we can’t deny that it’s here to stay. It’s not just a part of our lexicon but when done well/right — it’s a significant part of our revenue and business development efforts.

Every agency is creating content. But many of them aren’t all that happy with the consistency or quality even though it’s taking up a serious amount of agency time and attention.

If you have to create it — why not monetize it?

In this workshop, we will teach you how to move content from the costs/investment side of the ledger to the income/profit side. Whether you want to write a best-selling book, be a sought after speaker, create a podcast or video series or something else — we’ll show you how to do it and how to leverage it!

You’ll walk way from this two-day, immersive workshop knowing how to:
