Would I be crazy for paying 3200 rent on 130k tc? Currently pay 2900 and max out my Roth, contribute up to empl match to 401k, spend freely on what I want, and usually end up with 1-2k at EOM depending on how crazy I go. I guess I can afford it but want to gauge if this is unwise in people’s minds.

Additional Posts in New Business. The good, the bad, the ugly.
We've focused on networking and self promotion through a monthly newsletter for our new business process; sprinkled in with a tiny bit of RFPs. We're considering doing a mailing to targets. Thoughts?
I’ve seen a lot of agencies bring in freelancers for new business work (either production or concept creating). Would you ever consider bringing in a new business consultant or pitch expert?
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!
Anybody care to share tactics for negotiating rates with procurement? Know they’re bluffing to drive all competing agencies down, but not sure what leverage we have to push back.
I’ve been working on a pitch that continues to get delayed and it’s poorly managed. The RFI was due in July. Then days AFTER submission I received an email from the consultant saying we now had until August. End of September rolls around and frankly I had forgotten about this 100-page beast. They want a meet and greet….the following week. The day before the meet and greet we get a list of questions (that aren’t easy softballs). Now 2 weeks later and nothing. What a gross feeling this process is
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!
We got a new business email that reads, “Interested in quadrupling my business in six months. Contact me if you can help.” If there’s a marketing firm that can do this, please contact me too.
Quick Q - how are your comp plans structured ? Not the amounts but more how do you handle recognizing revenue of multi year deals?
I find myself looking for a new role in agency / production company biz dev. I co-founded a creative production agency back in 2010. Grew it to a staff of 80 FTE, creating strategic content-driven campaigns for brands, tv networks, streamers, platforms, publishers etc. We developed and produced original TV as well. Around 2016 we positioned the company for sale and then sold in Jan 2019. After going over to the acquirer in 2020, I’m now free for the first time in a long time. What to do?
Any new biz roles open in NY? I’m looking for Account Supervisor level! I’m struggling to find New Business roles in general, I feel sometimes it can be such a niche search. Any tips / words of wisdom?
Anyone here have any advice for outsourcing new business? We’re an 18month old, busy design consultancy. I’m getting tied up in delivering the work and the pipeline suffers.
Hello! Curious if anyone has any thoughts on new year new business resolutions. Maybe it’s the fact that 2020 sucks but I’m already planning for the new year. I’m going to try and schedule time better for outreach and social media marketing. I tend to be too reactionary with my time.
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.)
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?
