Q: How did you get started on Grow Your Agency?

I was born in a small Russian village, much like the one depicted in the movie Borat! Growing up, I really took in a lot of the sociological factors of wealth. When my family moved to London--so I could get a better education--my perspective changed.

The U.K. is full of opportunities for entrepreneurs. I was never a fan of what was taught in schools, but I was grateful to have a seat at the table. In response to this, I became self-educated in business, personal development, and leadership. When I was seventeen, I tried out various online businesses. I was not successful at first. But as soon as SMMA came along, I knew it was the right business for me. I could see how it was disrupting the marketing and advertising industry. I had to be a part of it.

You can quickly scale a company if you have the right resources and you provide a service that businesses genuinely need.

I learned to be good at sales and found myself acquiring several clients. SMMA changed my life because the income potential was so high. Client retainers ranged from $2,000 to $15,000 a month. Since the costs of a completely digital SMMA are incredibly low, most of that was profit. I learned how to outsource certain roles and do other tasks myself.

In the field, I learned that clients needed to improve several aspects of marketing campaigns. Some needed funnel work and others had no idea how to run Facebook ads. I had to learn things the hard way regarding Facebook’s strict ad policies, ill-performing ad sets, and creative copywriting. I documented everything, so I could learn and adapt quickly.

After streamlining the process and consistently getting great client results, I knew I was on to something. I not only mastered Facebook ads, but I learned everything I could about personal branding.

When I started making YouTube videos about my SMMA success and teaching others useful tactics, that became my second calling. I was making an impact, and others really wanted to learn from me. From there, my personal brand took off and I decided to create an SMMA course.
