"Now that tax season is over, I have reviewed my numbers and was very pleasantly surprised to see that my website earned my over $22,000 in gross revenue in 2013. I picked up eight new business clients and received four referrals from them for a total of 12 new business clients directly related to my website. I also picked up fourteen new individual clients and received four referrals from them. The revenue from the business clients totaled over $18,000 and I also received another $4K from individual tax returns. Not a bad return on a $1,000 investment. I also want to commend you on your outstanding customer service. Although, I don't contact you that often, when I do, Robin and Dawn handle my requests both promptly and courteously. Bottom line: Build Your Firm gets results and I highly recommend them. They are very professional and are just a nice group of people who I enjoy working with."
We have been using BYF’s website services since 2006. Our website provides 6-7 qualified leads a month. Most of the leads we receive from the internet are very good and well worth meeting with. They are motivated to hire an accountant.
Hugh, Allen and their team have been great to work with. Not only has their advice quickly proved on-target and profitable, they have also have been patient and persistent while I change my practice. In a world of uncertainty and quick change, knowing BYF is accessible and available to help makes running an accounting practice so much easier.
Qualify Your Prospects First
When a prospect calls your firm and immediately launches a series of questions, who is in control of the discussion? As the rainmaker for your practice, the rainmaker should be in control of the process. By asking qualifying questions and seeking to understand your client’s need before answering their questions, you can quickly gain control of the dialogue and establish yourself as the authority.
Selling Your Personal Brand: What To Be Aware Of Every Day
When David was a small boy his father asked him, “What do you want to be when you grow up?” David thought about it for a minute and answered, “I don't know what I want to be, but I know that I DON'T want to be a salesman.” “That's too bad,” his father responded. “Because, whatever you WANT to be, you HAVE to be a salesman.” It is so true. You are always selling. You sell your services, your ideas and, most importantly, you sell yourself. No matter what you do for a living, you are a salesperson. So what will help you succeed in this world of “sales”? Let's take a look at how branding can help you sell yourself more successfully.
Today you will encounter countless opportunities to quit. It might be that a business proposal you hoped would come through will fizzle. You might have an argument with your spouse. You might lose an investment. Disaster might knock on your door any one of a thousand different ways. The only question is what you are going to do about it. Will you pick up your marbles, go home and declare that the game is unfair? Will you believe that you must just not be meant for success — that you are a loser that can’t get a break? Or will you decide to persist in your struggle, educate yourself and seek the answers you need?
Stop Wasting Your Money on Yellow Page Advertising
If your goal is to attract more small business clients, then stop wasting your limited advertising budget on yellow page advertising. That’s because there are more effective means to target small business owners and generate a higher return on investment. Over the next few years, the traditional yellow page providers will start milking this cash cow because it’s becoming less relevant. That’s right, the companies that sell advertising and then distribute those enormous books are investing their money on the internet. In fact, they are spending money with Google and Yahoo. That’s because consumers and small business owners are more apt to use the internet rather than hunt thru the traditional yellow pages.
