Agency Mavericks Presents

The Client Acquisition Formula

An Open Letter to Every Agency Owner Who Wants More Clients — But Has Never Been Able to Get Them Without “Luck” ...
As seen in...

Most people probably won’t believe what I’m about to say.

Really, I couldn’t care less. 

However, what I will promise is this: 

If you believe me, you will be well rewarded.

If you don’t, I’ll make it worth your while to change your mind.

Let me explain…

On this page, I’m going to show you a repeatable way to get new clients whenever you want.

Not bottom-of-the-barrel clients who haggle over price and don’t respect your process…

And not the type of clients you have to wait 3-6 months to hear back from…

Good clients, who respect you, who follow your process, who pay on time.

And I’m going to show you how to attract them with so much predictability…

You’ll never have to worry about where your next client is coming from — or whether you’ll have enough money for the month — ever again

If you don’t know me, my name is Troy Dean.

I’m a former web designer turned agency growth strategist, and the CEO of Agency Mavericks.

Several years ago, after my agency grew to high 6-figures, I started getting asked to speak at digital marketing conferences all over the world to talk about agency growth.

I realised there was a big gap in the market for training specific to agency owners — not just the run-of-the-mill fluff that was being repeated by every “guru” — but proven, actionable training from practitioners.

One thing led to another, and I went on to become one of the most in-demand authorities on scaling digital agencies to 6 figures and beyond.

Now, my team and I have helped over 3,417 agency owners scale — some of them to well over 7-figures — by working less, making more, and having more fun.

But it wasn’t always sunshine and rainbows.​

When I started my agency, I spent close to two years spinning my wheels trying to “crack the code” of getting clients…

I tried probably a hundred different strategies and tactics to get clients, but I could never get more than a sporadic trickle of leads coming in.

Nothing seemed to work, and I HATED the fact that I had to rely on luck just to earn enough to survive.

So I became hell-bent on answering the one burning question in the minds of most agency owners:

“Why is Getting Clients — Paying Clients — So Freakin’ Hard?”

I used to ask myself that on a daily basis.

I would lay awake at night wondering how — with hundreds of ways to find leads and all the information on the internet — I was only able to generate a few leads here and there…

And barely make enough to support MYSELF… let alone my family.

I was tired of the sporadic way I was getting clients.

I was tired of undervaluing myself just to put food on the table.

I was tired of having no consistent work.

I wanted more.

I was ready for more.

But no matter what I tried, I couldn’t crack the code… even though I had a good portfolio competitive prices… and great testimonials.

Most of the time when I would reach out to potential clients, I would either be ignored, or get a canned response like “we’ll consider you in the future” — then crickets.

I felt like I was stuck on a hamster wheel… putting in all this effort but getting nowhere.

There’s a metric crapload of information out there on how to supposedly “get clients”.

And there are hundreds of different tactics and strategies:

Niche down…

Work for free

Build your portfolio…


Join BNI…

Cold call…

Door knock…

Cold email…

Direct mail…

Lumpy mail…

Linkedin outreach…

Post on social…


Join local business groups…

Build referral partnerships…


Sales funnels…

Want me to keep going? I did it all. In fact, you wanna know what my marketing strategy consisted of?

“Throw a bunch of sh*t at the wall and see what sticks”

But there was just one problem: nothing stuck.

At least, not consistently enough for me to build a real business.

And I can tell you, after almost ten years coaching agency owners to scale to 6-figures and beyond, that strategy rarely works.

That’s when I realised…

The agencies that are able to attract clients seemingly “on-command”…

That are able to charge $5k… $10k… even $20k per client…

That are immune to the “feast-famine” cycles and cash flow issues so many agencies are riddled with…

Those agencies have a SYSTEM — rooted in fixed principles — that wove the individual tactics and strategies together into something PRACTICAL and EFFECTIVE.

Kind of like a recipe; do this, then do that, and get this result.

Plain, simple “cause and effect”.

With this newfound discovery, I went back to the drawing board and looked at what had worked best for me in the past…

And I started putting together my own system.

There were some challenges, of course.

But after a few months, I had a predictable and repeatable process for attracting quality clients who respected my expertise, whenever I wanted.

And because I could bring on as many clients as I wanted, I had far better positioning with my clients. They respected me and my process — they saw me not just as an expert, but an authority.

I was able to start doubling, tripling, even quadrupling my prices. And clients would pay without hesitation.

There was a hidden benefit to this too:

Whenever I wanted to bring on more clients, I didn’t have to think about where to start and what to do.

I knew exactly where to start:

First Step 1.

Then Step 2.

Then Step 3.

And so on.

Literally as easy as baking a cake.

It was because of this system that I was able to hit my first $10,000 month.

And because I was attracting quality clients who respected my process, there was little-to-no resistance to being on recurring care plans.

That meant I could very quickly build an almost-passive recurring income of $5,000 per month to cover my bills.

Everything on top of that was profit.

And with every new project I closed, that recurring revenue increased.

The rest is history.

Since I started Agency Mavericks back in 2013, I’ve been able to test and refine this system with close to 100 different agencies that I’ve helped coach directly.

Ask the owners of these agencies and they’ll tell you, we practically got it down to an exact science:

Fast-forward to today...

Now… over the last year with the whole “global pandemic” thing… I’ve had a strong urge to share this system with more agency owners.

A lot of new and experienced agency owners were hit pretty hard. This system is needed now, more than ever. And I feel obligated to share.

I would have done so sooner, but I was a little preoccupied…

So in the weeks following my daughter’s birth, my team and I began putting things in motion to put this system in the hands of more people…

Meet Goldie!

And in doing so, I believe we created possibly the simplest, easiest, and most effective client-getting methodology for agency owners — ever.


The Client Acquisition Formula

A four-week program that shows you step-by-step how to create your own repeatable system and process for attracting high-paying clients on-command, whenever you want.

Here’s what you’ll learn inside the Client Acquisition Formula...

Part one

The Client-Getting Mindset

What to do if you don’t have an office or team to make prospects respect and trust you like a bigger agency… so you don’t have to act like the “little guy” and let your own mindset get in the way of charging what you’re worth.

How to banish Imposter Syndrome for good and get taken seriously so you no longer doubt your abilities or let it throttle the growth of your business.

The “Intention” trick to hack your subconscious, double productivity, and get more done in a day than most get done in a week.

You’ll never get to the end of the day and be disappointed in yourself for not doing much because this little “ritual” will have you crossing off your task list in half the time. (This alone is worth more than what we’re charging for everything.)

How to transition between living and working at home and easily “switch off” at the end of the day so you don’t burn out and have time for yourself and your family every day.

Part Two

Positioning, Productisation, and Offer Creation

Consulting and done-for-you services: How to structure, position, and productise lump-sum and recurring revenue offers to make more money per client and avoid “feast-famine” cash flow.

Never worry about whether you’ll have enough money to get through the month — this module will show you how to earn steady income year-round.

Part Four

Your “Circle of Influence”

How to identify your REAL ideal client using the “100 Prospect List” method to take the guesswork out of who you should be working with.

You’ll know without a quiver of doubt that you’re targeting the right businesses because they’ll be eager-to-buy… before they’ve even heard your pitch.

The “Firestarter” technique to establish relationships with top influencers in your niche — and become one yourself — to attract a flood of prospects who know you, trust you, and want to work with you.

How to form your “Gang of 5” — a circle of referral partners who serve your niche, and can send clients your way for free. You’ll have security and peace-of-mind knowing you can always lean on them to help you out when you need business.

Part Five

How to use “gift giving” to leverage the Law of Reciprocity and instantly become more likeable and trustworthy — ideal clients will be lining up in hordes to “pay back the favour”.

Proven organic outreach methods that prevent the infuriating “we’ll consider you in the future” response — or worse, being ignored all together. Have confidence knowing you can use these methods at any time to quickly get leads in the pipeline for no cost at all.

Bonus when you join today!

Introduction to high-ticket sales funnels and paid acquisition Once you’ve gone through the entire system, your client acquisition processes will be so dialled-in that you can either choose to keep things steady… or pour fuel on the fire and rapidly scale your income with paid traffic and an automated high-ticket sales funnel. I’ll give you an intro into how our best students — agency owners doing upwards of $20k per month — are using paid traffic and sales funnels to scale to $50k per month and beyond.

So, what's the investment?

Up until now, the only way you could get all of this training was in our elite mastermind, The Mavericks Club.

Membership for that is $25,000 USD per year, and we have over 60 members who gladly pay that.

The next best option — which only has PART of this training — is our 6 month Accelerator Coaching Programs…

Which is an investment of $6,000 USD.

But I’m not even going to charge that much.

Our program for beginners — the Digital Agency Blueprint — has maybe a fraction of this client-getting training.

The investment for that? $2,997 USD.

But, again, I’m not going to charge that much.

What do you think would be fair?

I want to get this in the hands of as many agency owners as possible.

For a limited time, you can get lifetime access to Client Acquisition Formula for just:

One simple Payment of $997.

The decision is yours alone to make. I urge you to take advantage of the opportunity in front of you. But before I sign-off, ask yourself:
If you were 12 months in the future, looking back on this moment, and your life and business were still exactly the same — would you be okay with that?

Don’t pass up your opportunity to get the Client Acquisition Formula!

Got a question? Your answer may well be in the FAQ below...

Perfect! That means you don’t have years of bad habits we need to undo. If you’re just starting out this is a great opportunity to build a business based on best practices, right from the word go.

The training is available via a private Facebook group where it was originally delivered or within our members website. There will be homework to complete and an opportunity to have your questions answered.

You’re in luck. We will walk you through the process of choosing a niche in the program and then help you craft your message so you can attract more of your ideal client.

Good question. We’ve been doing this since 2013 and have trained thousands of students who have achieved all sorts of life-changing results.

Search the web for any bad reviews of WP Elevation or Agency Mavericks as we are now known. You won’t find any.

We have loads of 5-star reviews on Google and Facebook. Plus, we offer a full 30-day 100% money-back guarantee, so you have nothing to lose.

The simple answer? You don’t. And we don’t either.

The truth is, we have no idea what you do when we’re out of the room, or how good you are at following instructions and executing new ideas.

All we can do is point you to the testimonials on this page so you can see what happened when others followed our strategies and committed fully.

We find that students get the best results when they set aside 2-3 hours a week to focus on implementing what they learn. How you carve out that time is really up to you and how you learn best, but know that it’s entirely possible to get tremendous results from the Client Acquisition Formula, even in just 30 minutes a day!

When it comes down to it, the question of whether the Client Acquisition Formula is worth the investment is really up to you.

Of course, you can find heaps of advice online for free, but in reality, you’re probably already wasting hours searching for answers to simple questions, only to wind up feeling none the wiser.

Alternatively, you can make a one-time investment in the Client Acquisition Formula and receive lifetime access to a course that promises to make building your agency easier and more profitable than ever before.

The bottom line?

When you join us, you’re investing in more than just an online program – you’re investing in yourself and your future.

When you see something that you know you need, it’s easy to think to yourself “I’ll put this off until a “better” time. The only trouble is, no such time exists, and before you know it, you’ve wasted weeks of income generating time, and you’re still frustrated and dissatisfied.

Part of our roles as mentors and educators is to hold you to the same high standards that we hold for myself and encourage you to take decisive actions.

That’s why we’re only offering the Client Acquisition Formula for a short period — to help you quickly decide whether it’s the right option for you, so you don’t waste time procrastinating or avoid making a decision.

And don’t forget, when you enroll you have lifetime access to the course, including all future updates, so you can easily invest now and pick it up when you have time knowing the content will always be relevant and up to date.

Payment can be made with PayPal or any major credit card.

Yes, absolutely. It’s slightly more expensive in total than paying in full upfront, to account for extra admin time and costs.

As soon as you’ve enrolled, you’ll receive an email from us with all the information you need to access the online classroom where the welcome video will be waiting for you.

This email will also provide details of how to join the group and our members website. We’re biased, clearly, but we think we’re pretty awesome at creating community, and know our respective groups to be some of the friendliest, most engaged, and supportive groups online!

And with students all over the world, we predict there’ll rarely be a time when someone isn’t online to answer your questions or help celebrate your wins.

This course was originally delivered via a Facebook group which you are still encouraged to join. It is also available in our members website where you can go through each module. 

We’re pretty sure that once you step inside the Client Acquisition Formula and get a taste of what it feels like to be a part of such an awesome global community, you won’t want to leave.

That said, if after 365 days of working through the program you’re dissatisfied for any reason, we’ll gladly refund your full investment. Simply email us, and we’ll get you sorted.
