Deep Dive

Is Social Media Marketing Agency (SMMA) saturated? This is a question I get asked frequently. In this deep dive, I'm going to give you the brutally honest truth based on my own experience. Let's cut through the fluff and get straight to the facts.

My SMMA Journey

I started my SMMA journey 19 months ago. I’ve been full-time in this space, running two marketing agencies: a real estate lead generation agency and a cold email agency. Despite what many gurus claim, it’s not as easy as it looks.

The Hard Reality

First off, SMMA is far from easy. Gurus often paint a rosy picture, promising that you can make $10K a month with minimal effort. They sell you the dream of learning one skill in an hour and magically landing high-paying clients. The reality? It’s much tougher.

Many of these case studies are twisted. For instance, they might showcase someone who went from zero to $10K in a month. What they don’t tell you is that this person probably had prior experience in a related field. Don’t believe everything you see.

Volume Negates Luck

One crucial lesson I’ve learned is that volume negates luck. This means that if you do enough volume, whether it's outreach, ad spend, or content creation, you will get results. Sending a hundred DMs and expecting success is unrealistic. You need to send thousands, even millions of emails or DMs to see significant results.

Stick to It Long Enough

Most people give up too soon. SMMA requires persistent, hard work over a long period. You’ll face rejections, failed sales calls, and unresponsive leads. It’s essential to stick with it for at least six months to a year to see any real progress. Most people quit after a couple of months, which is why they fail.

Avoid Shiny Object Syndrome

Shiny object syndrome is a common pitfall. It’s tempting to jump from one business model to another, hoping to find a quick path to success. Whether it’s drop shipping, growth hacking, or some new trend, switching constantly will only slow you down. Stick to one thing, refine your approach, and you’ll achieve better results.

Learn from Your Mistakes

Making mistakes is part of the process. Whether it’s botching a sales call or a cold email campaign, the key is to learn and adapt. Everyone makes mistakes, even the most successful entrepreneurs. What sets them apart is their ability to learn from those mistakes and keep pushing forward.

Discipline and Mindset

You know what you need to do: send more outreach, create more content, and run more ads. The challenge is having the discipline to do it consistently. Procrastination and consuming too much educational content can trick you into feeling productive without actually doing the work.

Eliminate Bad Habits

Bad habits like playing video games or mindlessly scrolling through social media can hinder your progress. Focus on productive activities and create an environment conducive to work. Limit distractions and stay committed to your goals.

Invest in Mentors and Courses

While it’s possible to learn everything on your own, investing in mentors and courses can fast-track your success. Not all gurus are scammers. Many provide genuine value and can help you avoid common pitfalls. Recognize that there are people more knowledgeable than you and learn from them.

Final Thoughts

SMMA is not saturated, but it is challenging. The key to success is persistence, high-volume outreach, and continuous learning. If I were to start over, I’d consider working for an agency first to build foundational skills before launching my own. This approach allows you to gain valuable experience and avoid the steep learning curve of starting from scratch.

Remember, success in SMMA—or any business—requires hard work, dedication, and the willingness to learn from your mistakes. Stick with it, and you’ll eventually see the results you’re aiming for.
