Need some advice. Been at a new agency for two months, but because agency and the client are parting ways, there’s been little for me to lead/manage. How do I bring this up to boss?

Just let them know because if the changes going on you have the bandwidth to help out in other projects should anyone need it. Often times if you don’t mention you have the ability to take on more they don’t know it. I am currently going through the same thing as well.

YES to this advice! Lean in.

Are you saying you're assigned to work on an account that the agency is about to lose while you just started working there?? Because that means you might get laid off (what happened to me except I called the upcoming loss of business and my eventual layoff)
I'm not quite sure what your situation is from how described it

Yea, you need to be actively pushing for what is next if you are on an account that is going away.

I hate project management. I literally hate it. I've done it for a bit now and I don't know if it's this current role but I don't want to manage other people to make sure they're doing their job anymore. I honestly don't understand the people side of it. You have a job you should be managing your time to get things done accordingly. Oh you're swamp and need help remembering, well get a calendar. I don't want to rake notes, send out next steps, manage meetings invites I don't run myself. Ugh

Round or exact numbers on banners/LPs? I was curious about this since in negotiations for example or pricing it's better to have the exact number. But if you have a case study, for example, is it better to say "Client X increased their revenue to 1,000,000 ARR" instead of "Client X increased their revenue to 987,500 ARR" ? Anyone has seen any impact on conversion rates?
