Be careful of what you wish for is a common old saying that recently rang true for us at The Shop. Or putting it another way, “This is What We Wanted.”
When we moved into our new office, Matt Sitser, Dustin Taylor and myself, David Soames, had each of our often-repeated quotes framed and hung in our break room. And it’s these kinds of weeks that I find myself revisiting them. Sometimes, this whole running an agency thing is pretty damn hard. It’ll test your nerves. Wear you down. Stare you right in the eyes and see what you’re really made of.
In the course of the past week we have we shot a pair of spots for Tiff’s Treats Cookie Delivery and another spot for Billy Jealousy – a men’s grooming product. After months of design and development, we launched a brand new website for our friends at Cobra Trading. And we pitched a new piece of business in the spirits space.
But at the end of the day, this is easily one of the best parts of it all. The endless challenge of prepping for a new business pitch, client lunches and dinners, and just being able to prove to yourself again and again that you can do it. And you can do it better than you did the last time. Nothing beats that feeling.
We’ve also actively been on the hunt for a few new Shoppers to add to our team… namely copywriters.
So reach out if you’re interested.
