Iman Gadzhi is the founder of his own marketing agency called IAG Online Services Unlimited. Through his company, he aims to assist his clients in increasing their sales and boosting their revenue using their expertise in social media marketing. Due to his success, he has decided to develop various online training programs that can help you build your own SMMA and scale it to six figures or more. Currently, the online course goes by various names, including Iman Gadzhi’s Six Figure SMMA, Grow Your Agency, and most recently, Agency Incubator. He also has a YouTube channel that discusses various topics related to making money online, and is now currently at 263K subscribers and counting.
Grow Your Agency is the website where Iman Gadzhi hosts his training programs on how you can build a successful and high-earning SMMA. According to the website, their mission is that it basically wanted to reform the business education system. Because for them, traditional education available for it is outdated, invalid & even overpriced. Thus, their courses aim to deliver 10x the impact on your income for 1/100 of the price tag of a regular college education.
While the training programs of Iman and him are considered “beginner-friendly,” they are primarily aimed at agency owners who are already earning between $5,000 to $30,000 per month or more. Because what they’re mostly striving for is to help businesses like these scale their earnings from 2x to 5x of what they’re earning right now. That doesn’t mean that beginners with zero business experience can’t take advantage of some of the training presented here in this program.
In one of their case study videos, Iman mentions this statement. “Our students literally get unprecedented access to both my team at the agency, as well as all the systems we’ve built over the last four and a half years. We are so confident that we can get you results, that not only do we have a 14-day money-back guarantee, but if you’re truly not satisfied? Not only will we give you your money back, we’ll even throw in a hundred dollars for wasting your time.”
Yes. You read that right. While other online courses require you to wait 30 days or more before you’re eligible for a money-back guarantee if you’re not satisfied with the course, Grow Your Agency’s courses do it differently. They’re so confident of their offer, that if you’re not satisfied with their program after 14 days, they’ll give you a full refund of the purchase price, plus an additional $100 as compensation for, as they say, “wasting your time.” Of course, such a guarantee will also mean you may have to jump through some hoops in order to claim your refund, but it’s not clearly mentioned upfront.
But Iman himself has all the proper reasons to be confident in his training programs. After all, his angency, IAG Media, routinely clears more than $100k a month, he claims, with a team of four individuals who clearly have the expertise needed in social media marketing. The clients that he has served are also quite big names in some industries, too. Names like Oura Ring, Kevin Rose, ZebraFuel, and AJ&Smart, are just some of the clients he has served along with dozens more.
Iman elaborates further on this in this statement, “We’re the experts that the experts go to, to learn from. Our track record is truly crazy. And I think the most important thing is to look at what someone does, not what they say. At Grow Your Agency, we have conviction, that if you’re the right fit for [any of their courses], we can get you results.” At this point, he ends his presentation and will ask you to book a call with his team to apply.
As for the cost of Iman’s online courses? It can always vary on which course. For example, one of Iman’s earlier courses, Six-Figure SMMA, cost around $997. His newer online course, Agency Navigator, costs around $1,499. But his most expensive one is Copy Paste Agency, which costs $5,000, but seems to be the most complete and comprehensive SMMA online course that Iman offers. As for Iman himself, he seems to be a rather trustworthy and legitimate guy. But I have some concerns about the SMMA business model.
Running your own marketing agency involves having to get in touch with clients who are looking to avail of specific services, and then providing them with the results. Some examples of these include clients who are looking for a way to increase organic traffic, or people who want to get their money’s worth in advertising. These client needs may sound similar, but actually, they are not. This is why it is advised that you know how to multitask, as it could overwhelm you when your workload starts piling up.
If you are not able to meet deadlines set by your clients, this will result in revenue loss, and you will also lose the trust of the people who decided to avail your services. You have the potential to earn the big bucks, but it is not guaranteed whatsoever. You will be facing a lot of rejection, and it is quite tedious. What you need to be doing on a daily basis includes having to reach out to potential clients by phone or by email.
This business model can be quite tough, as you would be working for multiple people at the same time. To be honest, they wouldn’t really understand that you are also working for other people, as all they want is results. They don’t really care how you get them as long as you provide them. Basically, it is quite a stressful side hustle to get into. If you are working alone, then the stress and workload can easily overwhelm you. I think you should consider other side hustles which are more relaxed. That way, you can still make money without having to deal with a lot of stress and toxicity.
