Creating Recurring Revenue with Loyal Clients & Staff While on the Road
It’s one thing to build a business, and it’s a completely different thing to build a business well. Almost anyone can start a business these days (even if you’re just working for yourself), but to build a business that is sustainable, provides consistently great value and treats its people well is a real accomplishment.
Our guest today has done all of that and more with his podcast agency – which he also founded on the road while living a nomadic lifestyle.
Jeremy Enns is the founder and Storyteller In Chief at Counterweight Creative, a podcast production agency with more than thirty clients. Jeremy started his business while travelling the world so he could have a flexible source of work, and over the past three years has become incredibly well-known and respected in his niche.
Now, he’s focused on delivering high-quality content to clients and awesome work culture for his team.
Jeremy and I had a great conversation about how he started his business and why he chose to build his own company rather than work for someone else. We talk about how he got his first clients, what he did to get a steady stream of referrals and how he keeps his clients happy in the long run with a recurring revenue model.
We also talk about more of the business side of his agency, why he decided to accept and lean into his niche and what that’s done for his business since. Jeremy also shares the philosophy behind his investment into team-building and self-management tools that keep his contractors coming back and his turnover incredibly low.
Jeremy’s business is a great example of how strong the agency model can be when it’s done well – you’ll love this episode!
