Scoping – What is Scoping?
We understand not everyone knows exactly what they need from a project. It’s this lack of knowledge that some agencies and consultants build their business model on. Action Agents build their business model on your project or campaign getting executed. Before you agree to a contract with any agency you might want to scope out your project and budget. That’s exactly how our scoping services work, you work with directly with a strategist to get a project scope based on your goals.
You pay only for the time with the strategist to help scope your project with no commitment to work with Action Agents after scoping. You can take your scoping and look for other agencies or contractors to help you execute it. The value of scoping is you get a straightforward breakdown of some ranges of costs and approaches to your needs. You’ll get a breakdown from an experienced strategist who wants to help you design a budget for you project that fits your needs.
