Attention Marketing Service Providers & Agency Owners:


How to Claim Your Status as a Trusted Advisor, Increase Your Income, Impact, and Influence, & Set Yourself Apart from the Vast Sea of Average Marketers

You are at wit's end!

Imagine you run a successful marketing agency providing top-notch services to a growing list of clients.

Despite the constant hustle and grind, you're proud of the work you do, and your clients love you for it.

But as much as you love your work, you can't ignore the mounting problems that are driving you crazy.

It seems like no matter how hard you try, your agency just can't seem to pull in enough leads.

You're constantly having to hustle for new business, which means you're not putting enough time into serving your current clients.

And with competition from low-priced marketers overseas and the rise of DIY software that clients are using themselves instead of paying you to do the work, it seems like you're always fighting an uphill battle.

To make matters worse, clients are abandoning you left and right.

You've had more than a few run-ins with clients who have unreasonable expectations, and it seems like no matter how hard you try to make them happy, they're never satisfied.

And even though you're doing great work, you're not getting the referrals you need to keep your agency growing.

You're starting to feel like you're in over your head, and you're not sure how much longer you can keep this up.

Get ready for a shocking truth...

You are not the only marketer experiencing these struggles.

We know... because we've spoken with hundreds of agency owners and marketing service providers in recent years, and hear the same three complaints over and over:

High Client Attrition
• Competition from Overseas & Clients Taking The Work In-House
• Owners Not Taking Home Enough Money

We understand these issues all too well... because we've been exactly where you are.

We know what it's like to feel like you're running in circles, trying to keep up with the competition and struggling to keep clients happy.

That's why in 2018, we abandoned the traditional marketing agency model and...

We reinvented our business as a Marketing Strategy Consultancy

And we're not talking about any old consulting...

We designed a comprehensive consulting program to deliver HIGH VALUE to the businesses who go through the process...

...and a HIGH NET PROFIT (to the tune of around $30k per client) for us!

And now, we're sharing everything we've developed (and all of the knowledge behind it) as part of our official... 

The Prepared Advisor Program

Our proprietary consulting system has revolutionized the way clients think about their marketing...

...helping them make better, more profitable, and more strategic decisions.

And businesses are willing to invest significantly in this kind of comprehensive planning process, because it is an investment that pays off for years to come.

The "Start With Strategy" model we teach you inside The Prepared Advisor Program helps you choose better clients, too!

Clients who recognize the value of investing tens-of-thousands of dollars and committing to a comprehensive consulting process so they can benefit from better, predictable, and consistent marketing systems for years to come.

Small Businesses Are Craving Guidance... And We Need Your Help To Provide It!

When we started offering our consulting program back in 2018, we thought we'd become known as the agency that helps small businesses create profitable marketing systems.

But we quickly realized we could help more businesses... by putting our consultative approach into the hands of the marketers and agencies already serving them.

Which is why we've decided to turn to to marketing professionals like you and show you our new and highly profitable "Start With Strategy" business model.


Inside The Prepared Advisor Program, you or your designated consultant (trained by us), will guide your clients through a series of decisions about their market positioning, the way they structure the offer of their products and/or services, and identify multiple paths to increase their revenue.

When you become a Prepared Advisor, you'll also...

    • Have your very own plug-and-play high-ticket, high net profit offer (netting you as much as $20k or more per client you sign in take-home-profits)


    • Increase your client retention (agencies whose clients go through this program can easily earn their continued patronage and loyalty for years to come - which is often tied to a happier and longer-tenured team members)


    • Move your agency from "service provider" to "trusted advisor" status (positioning is everything - and this new positioning give you the ability to play a more active and influential role in the growth of your clients businesses)


    • Access free ongoing support and training from The Prepared Group team.


  • Plus you'll receive access to our archives of sales and promotional materials as well as our extensive collection of books, videos, interviews and other resources to help you serve your clients in a way they've never experienced before from other marketers.

And don't worry about "finding extra time" in your busy schedule to take on more "work."

If you or someone on your current team doesn't want to be responsible for doing the consulting work... you don't have to do it yourself! Like we said above, if you'd like, we'll help you find a consultant - and train them to do the work for you - at no additional cost to you!


This program is NOT RIGHT for you if...
  • You prefer "quick fix" solutions to rolling up your sleeves and doing the necessary work to grow your agency. (Reality check: nothing with the kind of financial payoff available here is push button easy.)
  • You don't think there's anything else worth learning about marketing or business growth. If you're convinced that the latest tactics are also the greatest tactics... that can be applied to just about any type of business, this program is not for you.

  • You'd rather invest your efforts in cookie-cutter business models of "Scale Your Agency" Gurus who teach you how to sell simple, repeatable marketing "solutions" over and over, while you pass along the work to low-paid workers overseas.
  • You believe your job as a marketer starts and ends with driving traffic or leads to your clients - this program is definitely NOT for you!
This program is RIGHT for you if...
  • You own an agency or provide marketing services to businesses... such as lead generation, web design, SEO, PPC, social media, branding, offline marketing, print media, outdoor media, broadcast media, promotional products, public relations, content marketing, video marketing, email marketing, direct response copywriting, or any other service that helps your clients grow.
  • You recognize the value in repositioning your agency or advisory into a non-commoditized "category of one" business which has clients clamoring to invest heavily with you to help them grow their businesses.
  • You are willing and dedicated to implementing a "Start With Strategy" approach to the work you do... allowing you to charge $30k or more per client engagement (and keep the majority of the money).
  • You're excited about continuously learning and growing your business through ongoing training, interactions with your peers, and support and guidance from our team.
