Accountancy Client-Acquisition Service
You don't need
me telling you how hard it is to obtain new clients for an accounting
firm. It is one of the most difficult industries in terms of
there are SEVEN major hurdles or barriers in acquiring new accountancy
You need NOT
create PERFECT solutions for each but certainly a workable one,
if you wish to obtain new clients with any certainty and continuance.
wherever one goes astray would denote the TYPE of problem one
has with client-acquisition and, indeed, with the clients you
So let's go
through these seven points of misery then.
1. Finding potential accounting clients
The first barrier
involves the problems in FINDING potential clients, businesses
who are looking for a new and better accounting service.
Here, the definition
of "a potential client" is of great importance. Mere
"contacts" or "leads" will usually create
a lot more work than they're worth.
preselected prospective clients" is what you should be after
in sufficient quantity every month to ensure you acquire at least
ONE new client from those prospects monthly. Of course, two is
better... but one is the absolute minimum to warrant the cost
and bother of prospecting at all.
This is the
bitter pill for most accounting firms, the first point in the
chain of actions that may lead to new clients or then not. But
here we usually spend far too much for advertising, marketing,
or telemarketing in comparison to what we obtain in tangible
2. Having a successful presentation that
begets desired results with an acceptable success ratio
barrier is actually connected with the first, namely how to present
your services in such way as to make them realise the unique
benefits and the singular value of your services.
Paying an arm
and a leg for appointments with unknown decision makers
whether in money to some telemarketing firm or in sweat equity
prospecting yourself is pointless unless you have reasonable
certainty that you WILL create a uniquely positive impact in
Both of these
first two barriers are formidable because the general thinking
about accounting is that "all accounting firms are alike"
and/or that "their services are identical."
This is why
it is so seemingly impossible to create a positive difference,
to project yourself out there so that potential clients SEE you
as uniquely different and desirable.
3. Achieving closure with potential clients
without salesman antics
The third barrier
to acquiring new clients pertains to CLOSING the prospective
DECISION from the potential client is usually a drawn-out affair
that takes up your time but produces a lot of disappointments.
the longer the client thinks about changing accountants, the
more uncertain he grows about it, so a prolonged decision process
lowers the success ratio of sales.
part of this barrier is the fact that an accounting professional
cannot easily take on a hat of a salesperson. It does not sit
well with his/her actual role with each client and, truth to
tell, few accounting professionals feel comfortable in sales.
Thus, the third
barrier is really a lack of a proven method that would allow
the accounting professional to achieve closure with potential
clients WITHOUT having to sell at all. I'm talking about a set
of tools bespoke for the consulting accountant that ensure the
CLIENT ASKS TO SIGN ON.
4. Having something unique and spectacular
to offer to potential clients
barrier is again a close cousin to the previous one:
To secure such
demand, to be able to elicit such commitment from the potential
client, you need to have something rather spectacular to OFFER
to them. "Spectacular" in THEIR view, that is.
I'm not talking
about those "value added services" that you're supposed
to sell to existing clients that are so enormously difficult
to sell as they're either not related to your core expertise
OR quite advanced so only a few clients realise the value.
about a BASIC service whose value is head above others in the
eyes of your potential clients. An ACCOUNTING service of a basic
level that would interest every single potential client and onto
which they would gladly sign.
5. Having a plan on where you're taking
the client once signed on
The fifth barrier
involves WHAT you sell and HOW you sell it, once the client has
In other words,
do you offer him "hours" or "compliance services"
or "data entry" or "monthly and yearly accounts"
...or something else that's completely identical to what everyone
else is offering and thus altogether comparable by price (and
ONLY price as most clients have not the expertise to compare
the QUALITY of accounting work)...
...OR do you
offer him something that teaches him to use MORE of your knowhow
and services, something which, once delivered, will make HIM
ASK FOR MORE... something that's not available elsewhere and
is NOT priced by the TIME it takes to deliver?
If the latter
then you're going to love working with these clients. They'll
gradually become more and more attentive, interested and active.
They'll see the VALUE of your knowhow because it heightens THEIR
advancement of ability in understanding finances.
If you sell
the first alternative, then it's likely that in a few years they'll
again develop the same dissatisfaction toward regular accounting
services that made then change from their previous accountant
over to you... and you can expect no growth from the average
client in terms of more income, more profits, or more motivating
is important to client-acquisition because the more dreary, boring,
un-motivating and/or financially unrewarding the cooperation,
the less yearning you'll FEEL for acquiring new clients. And
the degree that you are enthusiastic and passionate about it
will decide how much you're prepared to DO for achieving the
goal, of course.
6. Avoiding nonpaying and uncooperative
The sixth barrier
is again related to the previous one: After all the work and
trouble you went into for acquiring a new client, you may find
that he has certain undesirable characteristics which make serving
him an experience you WANT to have?
How do you
screen potential clients to avoid the unrewarding, unappreciative,
uncooperative and slow-paying ones? Well, to do so you need to
have solved the two previous barriers so that what you OFFER
cannot really be bought unless the business owner appreciates
your knowhow and is willing to pay for it.
screening tools exist but it all depends on how successful your
prospecting system is so that it screens deadbeats from the onset
AND produces sufficiently many potential clients monthly so you
can AFFORD to chuck out a couple if you feel like it... if you
get a feeling these entrepreneurs aren't desirable as clients
7. Keeping the client-acquisition activity
going and producing
barrier involves the actual ongoing activity of acquiring potential
new clients and keeping it going and producing expected results.
It's one thing
to START something and a whole another to KEEP IT GOING once
the initial enthusiasm has waned.
Here, the more
you take on to keep going, the harder it will be.
activities function best if you have the tools to do each part
correctly, backup to help if you have problems... and an outside
service that delivers you those potential new clients to work
Thus, let someone
else do the tedious bits and concentrate on the more positive
parts where your expertise counts most. That way you will WANT
to keep it going because it's enjoyable and productive.
