Congratulations, your hard work has paid off and you landed a new client! But the real challenge comes now: how do you ensure this victory turns into a lasting, successful partnership.
In the fiercely competitive ad world, winning is just the beginning. The true test lies in how you onboard and integrate these clients into your agency’s culture and processes. This is where many agencies falter, lacking a systematic approach to foster a strong, enduring relationship.
