The Agency Episode 1 | Design Pickle x tribetactics

Published Feb. 27, 2022 4 Min. Read

All creative agencies have problems, right? Maybe your clients ask you for 15 revisions on every project. Maybe you’re having trouble finding and retaining clients because of the increasing competition. Or maybe, just like the Agency, your printer isn’t working.

More often than not, you’ll find that people dressed in pickle suits won’t magically show up as the Tooth Fairy to fix your problems (and printer!) for you — meaning it will be up to you to find solutions to these problems. The good news, however, is that you might have some outside help, in the form of tribetactics and Design Pickle subscriptions.

The Need for a Shift in Approach

As a creative agency, you know that it’s getting more and more competitive by the day. It used to be that delivering top-notch service in unrealistic deadlines was the gold standard in the industry. With competition being the way it is right now, it’s just the bare minimum. At times, this can put a lot of pressure on you and your teams, leading to poor results, unhappy clients, and finally cascading until the problems are too many to solve.

If this sounds like you, it’s time to shift gears and work in a more effective and lean fashion. Dedicate your revisions and repetitive tasks to a specialized subscription service, and focus on what truly matters: providing creative and innovative ideas to your clients.

So what would this new approach look like? Say you have a 2-hour webinar ready, and you wish to use it in various marketing channels for an entire month. This would involve:

  1. A few short videos, in the form of a trailer for the content.
  2. A few articles introducing the topic and talking about the issues most commonly faced.
  3. Posts customized for each social media handle that your business uses

The list goes on and on. The more efficient your methods of content distribution gradually become, the higher will be the synergies between these methods, and the more you will benefit in terms of increased engagement, higher conversions, and a much better reach.

How You Can Repurpose Your Content (and Find the Right Aura)

With tribetactics, content repurposing becomes incredibly straightforward. In a few clicks, you can adapt your content to different forms of media, different audiences, and different platforms. The subscription-based model also makes sure that you can easily scale up in months where there is a higher demand, and wind down in less active months.

Not only does tribetactics provide several templates that you can apply your brand guidelines to and make your own, it also allows you to create your own custom-made templates. These templates can then be used in the future for other forms of content too, making tribetactics the perfect long-term, flexible content repurposing platform for you.

While it’s debatable how well eucalyptus and desert sage work in creating the right tribetactics aura (at least, employees from the Agency think it does), one thing is for sure: our services combined with yours will definitely create the right aura for maximum content creation efficiency and success.

You Won’t Ever Need to Use Vegetables for Designing Again

Sure, the vegetable analogy in the episode might be hyperbole, but is it really? Any of your designers and account managers who have worked with corporate clients in the past can attest to how clients sometimes make unreasonable demands at the strangest hours of the day. It might not always be easy for you to always come up with original ideas. Even when you do, the back and forth revision process is often exasperating enough to make anyone want to quit their day job and go hiking in Timbuktu.

Not anymore. With Design Pickle, you can get out of this pickle (pun intended), and get all your designing needs catered to in one place. Whether it is social media posts, ads, or packaging design that your clients need, Design Pickle has got you covered.  By providing all these services to your clients without having to spend money on hiring a specialist or employee training programs, you get more diversified service offerings, more clients, and higher margins. It’s a win all-around!

All you need to do in order to get started is subscribe to the Design Pickle services, which is a matter of a few clicks. Along with tribetactics, you get the ultimate one-two punch combo. These subscriptions are also flexible, meaning you only pay for what you need, to adjust with the seasonalities of your agency.

Final Thoughts

The world of creative services is cutthroat and competitive, and it’s either eat or be eaten. In order to survive (and thrive), you need time to improve your margins and expand your clientele.  By providing highly specialized services at competitive rates, you can ensure that clients are the ones calling you, not the other way around.

With Design Pickle for your content creation needs, and tribetactics handling your content repurposing needs, you’ll be smarter, faster, and more affordable than your competitors. And maybe, just maybe, the Pickle Suit Guy will pay you a visit to fix that printer.
