Additional Posts in New Business. The good, the bad, the ugly.

Say we’ve got a pitch in 3 weeks. What’s a typical fee for a freelance strategist to lead the strategy and work with the team to build the deck? How much would they make in that gig?


Do you have a philosophy of approach to the initial q&a call for the RFP?

Hi there. Interested to know if Mirren is a resource you all use. Curious about it but it’s expensive. Any input is appreciated

Quick poll: if you are presenting case studies in a one on one setting or over coffee or lunch do you use printed deck or use an iPad? Or laptop? Thanks!


Anyone going to Mirren next week?

Ok I know some folks are heading back to the office. But for many we are still WFH. So question: how are you dressing for zooms? How has it changed over the last year if at all?


Do you have specific New Years resolutions that relate to biz dev? Would love to see them. Im going to post something of value on linked in each week in an effort to grow my familiarity with folks in my network. For context we are a small production shop with very little in the way of a social media presence.


$100K for high preforming business development manager in NY reasonable ask?


Fishies, I am hiring a partner in crime to help me introduce PETERMAYER to the national stage. This isn't your typical biz dev role - it's designed to be a hybrid/cross-discipline role for someone who wants to use their full creative, strategic brain and most definitely NOT stay in their lane. Know anyone that sounds like that, send them my way! (Agency is full-time flex/hybrid, but a desire to be NOLA-based is strongly preferred; however remote may be negotiable.)


Is there a going rate if you bring in new business (and aren’t on the new business team)? What if it’s per project and not retainer?

Does anyone have tips for getting prospective clients to state a budget? I'm not trying to milk anyone...I just hate wasting my time scoping projects they can't afford.


Thinking about trying to change into a career in new biz dev. What is the earnings potential of top new biz dev people in the US? For example “Head Of” or CMO level at well known agencies?


I’ve had bad experiences with New Business hired in the past. As in, nothing happened over 6-12 month periods bad. My agency (independent national player with Fortune 500 clients) is asking me to help search for a dedicated resource to business development. What should I be looking for and what should the agency’s expectations be? Thank you!


Does anyone know where to source an updated list of search consultants. My 4A’s list is terribly outdated.


Hi all! First : shout out to the folks who sold the super bowl clients! Question for all. What tools are you using for biz dev? For finding clients specifically. We are a video production house so our needs may be different but we want to grow direct to client work as well. I know of winmo, agency access and agency source. Any other online tools you are using? Thanks!


Hi all! Just introducing myself. I’ve become a Bowl Leader here in the new biz bowl. Looking forward to it! This bowl helped me tremendously when I switched from prod co sales to full service agency biz dev. Great group! I’m now biz dev director for a production/post/animation facility. Please comment with a bit about you and your role. Thanks!


What kind of digital (design, platform) RFPs are you seeing out there recently? Looking for some digital new biz trends. What keeping digital marketers up and where are they investing in 2021?
