The program was informative and very convenient.
I am glad I found you. I am more confident and picked up a lot of great ideas. When I decided to go on my own it was a journey without guidance. I am great as a Tax adviser but marketing is a new world for me. I am no longer traveling the dark path I have BYF GPS guiding me a very successful future. Thank you very much and I also would like to complement on how great your staff has been with the support I received with my website. Thank you Nita, Robin, Dawn.
Accounting Management Advisors
Great company to work with. They do exactly what they say they will and because of them my website is actually helping my business grow by bringing new customers. I always ask how someone finds me and they tell me it was my website as it came up in the top 5 when they searched for a local CPA.
The information provided in the seminar was timely and helpful. The presenters make a strong case for CPAs changing from hourly billing to fee-for-service billing and provide concrete examples of how the system can work. They also include useful hand outs which can be adapted and used in any practice.
The speed at which they had my website ready is very impressive. After I signed the contract, they immediately contacted me for an interview to learn my focus areas. Next, there were some design decisions for me to make. And then I was amazed at how quickly Build Your Firm had a draft of my new website ready for my review. It was less than 2 weeks after initially engaging their services that my website was ready for me to see. It looked very professional. I did have some text changes that I requested and they promptly handled those changes. My website just went live last week, so it is too soon to see any internet marketing results. However, I do see my ad whenever I do a related Google search.
If you want a professional-looking website, but have no idea where to begin, how to organize it, and what to include, this is a great option for you. The fact that they write 95% of the material on the site is a huge help in getting you started too.
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.
