Side Project Sunday

by | Dec 10, 2017 | 0 comments

Side projects are a beautiful thing, and Logic Inbound leverages side projects in four ways to drive value to our agency.

R&D

It’s important to stick to proven techniques with clients, but if we only worked on client projects we would become stagnate, and less effective over time. We use side projects as an experimentation platform to test out new theories and techniques, and processes to deliver those techniques at scale.

360 Insight

As consultants our role is to act as strategic advisers in a specific part of your business, and the more knowledge we have about how our marketing activities impact the entire business the better we can work with clients to succeed. Running an e-commerce store means we understand you from acquisition to conversion to customer support.

The Proof is In the Pudding

It seems like every company has been burned by an agency that said they could, but couldn’t.  Having success with a side project to include next to our list of happy clients is super important to differentiating ourselves from other agencies and builds a great deal of trust with prospects.

Scratches an itch

As a team of serial entrepreneurs, we like building companies. Working on side projects allows us to develop and flex skills outside of what we provide to our clients.

Maybe Someday

All of the side projects we execute on play to our strengths in search engine optimization, and the thing about entrepreneurship is you don’t fail until you quit. As long as we continue to make time for these projects, I am highly confident several of them will grow large enough to spin out into separate entities.
