If you are either looking to start your own agency or restructure your existing firm, Paul Roetzer’s book, The Marketing Agency Blueprint, will be a big help.

Paul is a small agency owner. He is the founder and CEO of PR 20/20 established in 2004. He has built an incredible national and international awareness and appeal for his agency’s new business using social media and inbound marketing. PR 20/20 was also the industry’s first provider of standardized services and set pricing and grew revenue

When I wrote The New Small: How a New Breed of Small Businesses Is Harnessing the Power of Emerging Technologies (shameless plug), I profiled a new set of companies that used intelligent management and technologies to do amazing things. Had I known about Roetzer's company, it surely would have been featured in the book. While I'm not familiar with the inner workings of PR firms and marketing agencies, I found that the lessons in "Blueprint" can be extrapolated for many types of businesses.

Very redundant and going nowhere but in circles. The basic idea is great though.

If you are about to open an advertising agency and you don't know where to start, start with this book. It consists of a great introduction that describes what and ad agency is supposed to do and how to calculate your prices, income, revenue...what kind of people there are and who do you need to employ to make your agency work. I would recommend it to all of the ad execs who feel lost in the brave new social networked digital word that renders them obsolete. I am sorry. Time to adapt or die, din ...more
If you ever need a crash course book to a new marketing agency project, you need to read this book.
Paul did a really great job putting together all the pieces for decision making and processes regarding a marketing agency challenges nowadays.
I personally found the "think talent and team" part of the book, because it gives me a fresh perspective of what an agency needs towards its goals.
Highly recommended book for every marketing entrepreneur or student.
I fell into the world of marketing. I didn't go to school for marketing, and I've only been at it for just over a year. So when I landed a dream content developer job with a digital marketing agency, I wanted to do a deep-dive and learn some basics quickly. This book, coupled with A Project Guide to UX Deisgn, was a huge help! I recommend it to anyone working in marketing or interested in the field.

As a boutique digital marketing agency owner, this book is arguably one of the best books I have read in a long.

The information he provides to help smaller, smarter agencies compete in the new economy is priceless.

This is not a philosophical book filled with hyperbole, but a practical, how-to guide to building an innovative, competitive agency... Of any size.
while not revolutionary, it was a systematic read in helping us becoming a market leader in the years to come. Will not help with quality of service issues but will help in giving a systematic view pr/marketing agency business development and management
Roetzer lays out a clear view of where he feels the marketing agency world is going, and lays a detailed path for you to get there. If you are a marketing pro working with clients, or hope to one day, this book is a must read.

One of the best books I've read on Marketing Agency Management 2.0. Written really well, not the boring old hum-drum of your typical business / management book. Anybody running a modern marketing agency must read this.
Jay Best
One of the very best books on modern marketing.
It's awesome reading books railing against the madman style of advertising execs.
It covers the true digital and digital methods but combined with the Old school too.
Mailis Viiand
Good writing style, good mixture of different knowledge and experiences. I agreed with many points made and I got some new ideas when reading this, which always gives extra plus points in my opinion.

The title covers the contents. We are using it as a guideline to transform into a disruptive agency. If you are an agency owner you got to read his.
I Like it! Although I don't agree with some perspectives of the author it's a book I recommend!
