Their secret?
The 1-3-5 Agency Formula

The 1-3-5 Formula systematically evaluates your processes, helps create a plan to reduce inefficiencies, and works with your team to implement an effective solution.


Formula Tablet
one goal-clarity

One Goal

Lack of clarity is the source of all inefficiency. It makes hand-offs confusing, frustrates team members, and delays project delivery. Clarity is the bedrock of successful, efficient teams.

Three Keys

Use the Right Tools

We will help you select the most powerful tool for increasing productivity in your organization. We will also help you set it up and use it properly, so you can deliver projects faster with fewer mistakes along the way.

Build the Right Habits

You will succeed or fail by the habits that you and your team have built. We'll help you establish the habits that drive a healthy, happy, and efficient organization.

Execute the Right Processes

Executing established processes will decrease the mental load on your team, improve hand-offs, and help keep projects on track. We'll help you build the processes you need to create clarity for your agency.

Five Steps-2

Agency Success Spotlight


The real game changer of working with ZenPilot was the visibility it gave us into our whole business. I can now feel peace knowing where projects are at, see blocks coming ahead of time so we can proactively communicate with clients, and plan out work accordingly with my team.

There is no way I could’ve built out all the top-tier processes we did in such a short amount of time without ZenPilot—or train my team on healthy project management habits.

ZenPilot is hands down one of the best investments we’ve made as a business. They help us live up to our value of excellence. If you have any doubts, leave them at the door and jump in!

[We] are starting to see deep insights from the work that we do. Where we are committing more time than contracted on certain functions, where we have burgeoning resource constraints, and a host of other valuable insights. Most importantly this has been helpful to the sales process in creating more clarity around pricing and packaging.

Hiring ZenPilot to help us implement ClickUp was easily the best investment we made in our agency’s growth. In the year since implementing ClickUp, our business has doubled, and our project management systems and structure have been able to adapt and scale with us, and ZenPilot continues to offer valuable guidance to keep us on the right track. You can’t ask for a better partner than Andrew and Gray!

We have more buy-in from our employees on the usage of ClickUp (and benefits!). From our Production Department specifically, we spend less time tasking out projects with the new templates we made and can quickly roll out each month/instance need.

We were able to develop a rock solid preliminary offering that allowed us to train sales reps on how to sell and then ultimately made it easy to convert clients onto retainers with us.

This had a ripple effect on our business in that it ultimately allowed us as owners to step away from the sales process and let it run while we focused on growing the business.

We are more efficient than ever and have streamlined our communication so it's organized and on task, vs having a huge Slack channel or Slack mess.

How much does it cost to work with ZenPilot?

We'd begin answering this question by asking "How much is inefficient operations currently costing you?", but...

To briefly answer the question, a full transformation can be $25,000 to $75,000, but most of our clients can get started for as little as $3,000.

However, even if you do have an appropriate budget, we won't move forward if we can't all see a clear path to achieving a 4-10x year one ROI for you.

When you have a conversation with ZenPilot, we'll walk through your situation, your goals, and the best path to achieving the outcomes you want.

Based on that, we will determine if you can get the ROI that would justify using our services.

Booking a call with us is completely FREE, so let's start there and see what we can improve in your business!

What results can we expect to see? How do you measure results?

That depends on your goals and your plan, but it's not uncommon for us to see up to 300% increase in efficiency for our agency clients.

But that's just one example. Working with us will allow you to reliably measure + improve a variety of agency metrics.

Our main tool for measuring success is called the Agency Operator Scorecard. The Scorecard gives you a clear view of key data about your agency (target vs actual), such as utilization, earnings/FTE, net margin, PM technology costs, and more. The Scorecard will show you how much money you're leaving on the table by letting underutilization and inefficiencies persist in your organization. Working with us will allow you to get that money back.

To see an example of the Agency Operator Scorecard, book a call with us.

How long does the process take?

That depends entirely on your stated goals, but most agencies will undergo a complete transformation in 10-12 weeks and will have reached 4x ROI by 12 months.

Do you only work with agencies?

Not exactly! We also work with in-house marketing teams (who often see themselves as an "internal agency")—one example is the marketing crew at LegalZoom.

And we work with businesses who do client work that may not necessarily see themselves as agencies, such as accounting firms.

While it's true that our expertise runs deepest in the agency space (and we have a library of 200+ plug-and-play process templates for that specific context), we have lots of advice and specific frameworks to share for any business that wants to put an end to chaotic project management and stop hopping from one PM tool to the next.

Book a free consultation with us and let's find out if we're a fit for you!

Do we have to use Teamwork or ClickUp?

Technically, no. You can work through the 1-3-5 Formula with whatever tool you currently use.  In fact, we wrote a guide on how to choose the best project management tool for your organization.  However, in our experience working with hundreds of agencies, ClickUp and Teamwork stand out as the most versatile and easy-to-use tools for agencies.
