Decisions agency

a. Who are you and what do you do? Hi! My name is Aigerim, I'm a agency owner. We provide brand-marketing services. b. What are the biggest issue with organization in your/an agency? Getting new hires involved in projects asap. And upgrading their expertise. I tried Notion for projects, but often clients can't use it. c. What kind of OS/system do you use today and what limitations does it have? We mostly use google drive for storage of all data and project information, it sometimes gets messy and new team members often don't get the full picture or doesnt spend enough time studying materials. d. What would your DREAM system for an agency look like if you could design anything? One storage with easy access and visually easy to navigate, I've tried to organize it myself in Notion, but I didn't get much progress.

a. Who are you and what do you do? My name is Justin and I am the CEO of a unique marketing/advertising agency located in Atlanta, GA (USA). What are the biggest issue with organization in your/an agency? We've used tools like Trello/Basecamp/WorkFront and found Notion.so last year and love the platform.... however we are trying to learn new ways of leveraging the software and love what you have done with it. We would love to emulate/learn from you considering you have a tremendous amount of experience with notion.so. What kind of OS/system do you use today and what limitations does it have? MacOS....its stable and serves us well... if you mean 'tech stack' overall we use a slew of different tools across channel execution and strategy consulting with our clients. We use ChatGPT/Bard daily. What would your DREAM system for an agency look like if you could design anything? I'm experiencing great success with Slogan's "Marketing Subscription" as a service model. We are a highly skilled and experienced group of consultants delivering tremendous results without all the 'fluff'... and our clients love it. **And we love to LEARN. Although we are technical marketing geeks, we know there are others folks who are incredibly talented that we can learn from! - you being one of them.

Teslim Adeyemo

A. I'm Teslim. I work for an NGO that operates more or less like an agency. We train Muslim organisations in personal development and resource management. We also help them manage their projects. B. We operate 100% offline. It will be nice to have a system that can help us move our operations online. Personally , I'll soon start my own virtual training outfit for Muslims individuals and organizations. D. Frankly speaking, I think the screenshot you shared has everything I'd want in want in an OS. I'd only add a product idea hub where members can share product idea with the whole team. I believe this product is ready to ship as it is. P.S. I bought the Course Architect Pro. Loving it. Though I've not yet launched a course, I've been using it to organise my course idea. And I'll be using it mainly for my training program

Rayan Ducastelle - Digital Marketing

Hi Pascio, My name is Rayan, I'm 26 years old and I'm French. I created my digital marketing agency in 2019, it's called Agence Workm21 (www.workm21.com). My agency specialises in branding and social media. I started with community management contracts and then gradually moved on to more comprehensive and in-depth services (consulting, audit, strategy...) These days, I'm also developing my personal branding to talk about my passion for marketing and my job as a community manager. I'm also a marketing teacher in several schools. I've launched myself on Instagram and Tiktok @rayanducastelle My main organisational problem is this: I can't manage to use just one tool, I'd like everything to be centralised in one place: crm, calendar, contact, documents, finances, etc. I'm trying to use Notion but I'm still a novice so a template would help a lot I think. I currently have a Notion system but it's difficult to customise and adapt. Because of this I have to use several different tools, but it's a waste of time and money. I'd like to have a system that is customisable and very intuitive. One that saves me time and, above all, centralises my information. I need to be able to manage my own tasks, those for my customers and store all the assets. It has to be both simple and complete. I need a tool with hyper-fluid task management like ClickUp. Thanks for your help.

Виктор Герасимов

a. Who are you and what do you do? My name is Victor. I am the head of an inhouse agency at an EdTech startup. We mainly create marketing landings in large quantities (20-30 pages per month), but sometimes we still create mvp products for the company b. What are the biggest problems with organization in your agency? We have orders coming to us from different departments. It is necessary to unite everyone, to lead on a timeline of projects, to decompose tasks. But so far it's come down to having a task in Jira, a discussion in Slack, and a simple table with the start date of each project and the end date. c. What OS/system are you using today and what limitations does it have? We use Jira (clunky, difficult to learn and integrate new features) and Google Doc (no single base with notes, tasks, easy task editing) d. What would your DREAM system look like for the agency if you could develop anything? I've turned my attention to Height's project management service. That sounds like what we need. Single space for all participants, discussions, gantt chart, etc. Here you can look at the functionality we need. https://height.app/agencies If your system can also do more, I'm ready to make a choice in favor of it. Because the whole team is familiar with Notion and it will be easier for me to build work in it than to teach interaction with a new service. Plus, startups like Height appear and grow every day. Notion is more stable for long-term use

a. Who are you and what do you do? I work for a branding design agency in UK as a content editor, and know that this would help our company tremendously. I also am wanting to start my own company soon in events mixed with social media and would love to test this out. b. What are the biggest issue with organization in your/an agency? I feel like the company needs a system that is more organised and can find everything in 1 place, rather than scattered. To stay on top of invoices and clients. c. What kind of OS/system do you use today and what limitations does it have? We use lots of different rescources. Paying for more than needed when it could all be in one like yours. d. What would your DREAM system for an agency look like if you could design anything? Ease of use is number 1, to stay organised and always be two steps in front which will alleviate mistakes. An annual planner for the team would be very useful also. For everybody in the team to have easy access to one system.

A) My name is Josh and I run a Google ads agency with a partner in the UK. B) collaborating with him and keeping everything organized is incredibly difficult at the moment because of time difference and different conversations C) we’re using Notion but it’s not very fleshed out D) easy place to track all tasks, communications and projects for the client. I would love a tool that would create easy reports on a weekly and monthly basis for the client that look good and help them understand what we’re doing.

a. Who are you and what do you do? - My name is Hamada, and I'm the CEO of RankTop Media, a digital marketing agency that specializes in SEO, content creation, and social media management. We help businesses increase their online presence and drive organic traffic to their websites. b. What are the biggest issues with organization in your/an agency? - The biggest challenges we face are related to project tracking and team collaboration. With multiple clients and projects running simultaneously, it's easy for things to fall through the cracks. Additionally, we struggle with onboarding new team members efficiently and keeping everyone on the same page. c. What kind of OS/system do you use today and what limitations does it have? - We currently use Trello for project management and Slack for communication. While these tools are great for specific tasks, they don't offer a unified solution for all our needs. For example, Trello is excellent for task management but lacks advanced reporting features. Slack is great for communication but doesn't integrate well with our project timelines. d. What would your DREAM system for an agency look like if you could design anything? - My dream system would be an all-in-one platform that integrates project management, team collaboration, client communication, and analytics. It would have a centralized dashboard that displays real-time updates on project statuses, team performance, and financial metrics. This system would also include automated workflows for common tasks like client onboarding and reporting. Ideally, it would be customizable to fit the unique needs of our agency and scalable to grow with us.
