Imagine if it was possible to get paid for marketing your services through selling Accounting publications...

We are so used to the idea of having to pay a fortune for the smallest Accounting service marketing campaign that the headline probably seems totally unrealistic to you.

But things change in this world and we can only find new marketing ideas by questioning some of the old "truisms" of traditional Accountancy marketing.

All right. So HOW can you totally REVERSE the money flow on marketing?

Well, by SELLING the information that is needed for a business owner to realise the value of your services... that which you now deliver for free!

Instead of trying to push home the information to a single business owner at a time, why not go into PUBLISHING and start selling this same information in form of a manual?

"Oh," you may say, "but I am not an author..."

You don't have to be one.

You don't have to write a single word to start utilising the power of accounting publications and publishing in your marketing. You just have to understand the principle and decide to go for it.

How, I will explain further down the page. But before that, it's vital that you get all the data.

 

Accounting publications: Start client-relationships with a "starter manual"

A starter manual is a very special form of an accounting publication, used in marketing your Accounting firm and services.

Starter manual is so called because it STARTS the cooperation between you and a new client — it is the first item of sale in what is known as the client-relationship.

It's not the premiere or principal Accounting service we intend to sell to the business owner but one that's intended to be sold FIRST in order to give a sample of your knowledge and service attitude.

Obviously, when dealing with a business owner you've never met before, it's much easier to sell him a manual costing same as a good lunch (and without any obligation to change Accountants) than to get him to sign onto your services for years to come.

A starter manual is a great way to start communication with members of you LARGEST target audience — all those businesses in your area. It's not what you would use with REFERRALS or those rare clients who contact you and have already DECIDED to change Accountants.

But to make those thousands of businesses in your area accessible to your marketing, a starter product is very much the thing to use.

As you know, it's not at all that easy to get those business owners interested in changing Accountants. And even if you succeed there and get a prospective client, it's not that easy to actually convince him that you're so much better that he should change Accountants.

Enter the starter manual.

Instead of trying to get business owners interested in CHANGING Accountants, why not offer them a low-cost GUIDE on how to get MORE out of Accounting?

You know, if they really find out how much you could offer them (with the help of Monthly Financial Consulting Service) they're not going to want to stay with their current Accountant...

But until then, business owners are reluctant to even CONSIDER changing Accountants.

And that's the strategy of this starter manual. It will CREATE the willingness to start planning changing Accountants.

It will allow the business owner to purchase your manual without any intention of changing Accountants... and let you "get clients" without having to handle that reluctance.

Once they READ the manual and discover how much they COULD (and should) get from their Accounting service.... well, then they WILL want to change over to your services!

There can be many kinds of "starters" — whether products or services — but they all have these things in common:

1. Broad appeal to the large target group: A starter must be something everyone in your target audience could buy and will buy if they understand its benefits.
2. Standardized, easy and quick delivery: A starter must be quick to deliver and its quality must be standardized and high so that buyers will absolutely get MORE than what they expected from it.
3. Inexpensively priced at below the impulse-purchase limit: A starter must be priced low enough so its purchase can be decided immediately. This is the so-called impulse-purchase limit, a level below which the business owner feels free to buy it without asking anyone's opinion or approval for his decision.

I mean, think about it for a second.

If you had a low-priced manual that appeals to every business owner and whose contents will impress them even more than what they expected AND show them what they're missing... AND contain a one-on-one interview with you at the end of it... what would happen?

A lot of business owners would buy it... and each of them would effectively become preselected prospective clients for you... and many of those would eventually sign on as new clients!

Your readers would KNOW you (although you don't know them!) and thus your chances of winning their business increase. With the manual, you show them how you always deliver even MORE than you promise — see? — and now they will TRUST you further... which is usually enough to get them signed onto your services!

All right. Now, let's get back to the "how you can start" of it.

 

 

"How to get profit-creating information from your Accounting service..."

...is the name of a 97-page online manual that you get with your Modern Accountancy Marketing & Sales Course (part 12). It's written in layman text so business owners have no trouble understanding the contents.

This easy-reader manual starts the existing reality of the reader on Accounting services and advances to bringing him more and more realisations on how much he could benefit from a better service.

This better service is based on the basic added-value Accounting service given in your Modern Accountancy Marketing & Sales Course, namely Monthly Financial Consulting Service.

It's a uniquely and positively different basic service whose presentation will give dozens of reasons for the reader to start considering a chance of Accountants.

You get the right to sell and deliver this manual, tailored with your name and contact details (and any changes or additions you wish to include) and pocket the money.

Publishing this "Business Owner's Profit Guide" is a great idea because it will...

allow you to give enough information to each prospective client so they can understand the value and uniqueness of your services
ensure that when they PAY something for the information, they'll also automatically assign a higher VALUE to it. More value means higher interest and greater degree of believability... which again translate into more effective marketing.

save YEARS of your time since potential clients will read the ready materials rather than take up your time explaining these same things to every prospect over again.

You can use your time as you want and your prospects will spend THEIRS reading your presentation materials until they're ready to contact you for the next step!

achieve much higher functionality and efficiency in your marketing because this type of a manual will let the READER realise and formulate those facts you would otherwise have to TELL him.

When HE invents those positive things, they're much more truthful to him — they're HIS conclusions, not your claims, see?

actually MAKE MONEY with your marketing rather than having to put money into it. Now, isn't that a novel idea?

We will also give you the full briefing on HOW to sell this manual (and even how to create OTHER similar manuals on other subjects if you're interested) and give you the ready-to-use messages and tools to do so effectively.

 

The secret of obtaining new clients

The reason why this approach works so well is in the unique Monthly Financial Consulting Service that the whole Modern Accountancy Marketing & Sales Course is based on.

The fundamental problem in acquiring new clients for any Accounting firm lies in that ALL ESTABLISHED companies already HAVE an Accounting firm.

Thus, all valuable clients are currently "someone else's clients" and, while the majority of them are NOT satisfied with what they receive from their current Accountant, they continue with the same firm simply because they don't believe that other firms have anything better to offer.

Add to this the trouble brought on by transferring accounts from one firm to another and you get the picture.

Why bother changing Accountants, see?

So, when you call to offer THE SAME SERVICE they're now receiving, the easiest way to get rid of you is to say "we're fully satisfied with our current Accounting firm..."

It gets rid of YOU fast, doesn't it?

But, if the truth be known, they're NOT satisfied with the service.

Absolutely not.

Oh, most of them have nothing against the Accountant personally.

They just don't think his SERVICE is much to write home about.

It's not the degree of politeness, manners, service attitude or technical expertise of the Accountant I'm talking about here.

I'm talking about the Accounting service itself — what elements it contains, how it is presented to prospective clients, what clients receive from in ON TOP of compliance services (or, as most business owners say, "keeping the papers in order")... the "MEAT" of it.

The STRUCTURE of the basic Accounting service is practically identical firm to firm...

...and very lacking in terms of what it GIVES THE CLIENT (as compared to what the average client WISHES to receive from it).

The problem, of course, is that it takes a lot of hard work to FIND OUT what clients really want because they don't know how to put it in words due to their (almost complete) lack of understanding of Accounting.

It took us YEARS.

By the same token, once we DID find out what they want and piloted the service for three years in more than 50 practices... we HAVE the special service that is the only effective way to INTEREST established firms to consider changing Accountants.

Apart from business startups and an occasional referral, the ONLY (meaningful) source of new clients can be defined as "those thousands of companies in your area currently using the services of other Accounting firms but not actively satisfied with what they receive."

The only reason these clients hang onto their current service providers is because they don't believe ANY Accounting firm has anything BETTER to offer.

Nice words, fancy terminology, stylish presentations... none of those will help you unless the business owner can see that the SERVICE you offer is MUCH BETTER than what he now receives.

It has to be CLEARLY BETTER so that he can see it's worth going into the trouble of changing Accountants.

And that's essence of Monthly Financial Consulting Service. That's what it does.

So, order your Modern Accountancy Marketing & Sales Course so you get this service for your firm, start offering it... and you've opened up many cost-efficient ways to market your services just because WHAT you offer gives you the edge.

Once you have Monthly Financial Consulting Service on the menu, one way to up the ante and get an almost UNFAIR advantage is to offer the Business Owner's Profit Guide for sale.

It will not only do your selling but also MAKE MONEY for you!
