14:13 – Tool 2 (SEO monthly reporting)
19:19 – Tool 3 (Website quality audit)
22:49 – The process to build your own tool
25:44 – What’s next?
🧠 (Most) already know how to use it…
There’s virtually no barrier to adoption for Sheets, Data Studio or BigQuery-based products. No need to train your staff or customers, it plugs in perfectly to your existing systems.
🤜🤛 Collaborative by default
Lean on Google’s built-in access controls to share across teams, update files in real time and easily collaborate with clients.
🔌 Integrates widely
Teams can use Google-based tools in coordination with their existing stack.
Teams can take Google-based tools and modify them to their heart’s content.
Ryan’s marketing agency struggled with project management. They struggled to get existing tools to fit the specific needs of an SEO agency.
We built a custom PM suite running entirely in the Google Sheets and Drive that fit their processes perfectly.
WEBRIS ended up selling this as a stand alone solution to other agencies. To date, they’ve generated over $300,000 in sales from this one tool. Below is a promotional video they made that gives a solid overview of the final tool.
Ryan’s team was spending 3 to 6 hours building monthly reports – for each client. When you have 40+ clients, that’s a major drain on resources.
We built a custom reporting solution in Google Data Studio that cut that time spent down to 15 minutes per report.
Clients are drawn to agencies that have unique capabilities and tech stacks. As a small agency, Ryan was losing pitches to larger agencies who has more resources to build technology solutions in house and offer to clients.
We built a custom audit that pulled in data from 4 sources, processed in Google BigQuery and reported in Google Sheets + Google Data Studio. Ryan was able to pitch this product and steal work from larger agencies. He cites this audit as one of the main reasons he was able to scale and sell his agency within 2 years.
