WordUp May 2019: How fast-growing agencies win business


🗣 Simon Cooke - How fast growing agencies win business

Simon tells his story of becoming a salesperson after 20 years as a designer. Now heading up the Commercial team at Pragmatic, one of Europe’s largest WordPress agencies, he reveals how agencies experiencing rapid growth can win business and retain valuable clients.

For agencies and freelancers who want a professional approach to sales with a creative touch, Simon shares practical advice on positioning your business, pitching digital solutions, and creating a unique value proposition, with a sprinkle of sales presentation tips to ensure you stand the best chance of success.

Simon is a Design, Digital Marketing and Sales specialist with over 20 years of industry experience, having co-owned a creative agency for 14 years, which merged with Pragmatic in 2016.

Nowadays, Simon heads up the Commercial Department at Pragmatic, the UK’s largest WordPress Agency with big plans for the future. Simon is also a jury member of the Automattic Design Awards and co-creator of PACE, a marketing technology conference held in London.
