of having a troubleshooting method for your Accountancy marketing
overlook the importance of troubleshooting when choosing their
Accounting service marketing system.
Yet, it's the
only way to ensure that you'll reach your goal.
And so it is
that IF you obtain a system which does NOT contain a troubleshooting
tool for debugging the various activities such as prospecting,
presentation, marketing, quoting, closing of the sale, and so
on within the system, one is CERTAIN to get lost and give
irrefutable evidence of extensive piloting
vital point about troubleshooting. The fact that it EXISTS within
the system whose purchase you contemplate is, in itself, proof
that the system has been USED under the supervision of its creators
at some length and extent.
The only way
the creator of the system can GET the data required to build
a troubleshooting tool is by EXPERIENCE in the USE of the system.
If he has used
the system, he KNOWS how pricelessly valuable the troubleshooting
information is for his clients... so, if he has it, why would
he not give it... or even MENTION it?
at two very different scenarios on how one can develop a marketing
system for Accounting firms.
While it takes
a lot of creativity and writing, it's the easy way. The "guru"
just sits down at his computer and starts writing. He
has these GREAT IDEAS which he now puts together into some form
of a marketing system which he then starts to sell.
a name he has, the better known he is within the industry, the
easier it is to sell such a system to a lot of practitioners.
isn't that system totally UNTRIED and UNTESTED?
a system completely UNPROVEN in practical application?

No, it can't,
sorry. And I'll tell you why.
prospecting, for example. If you reverse-engineer a viable, functional
prospecting system used by Accounting firms, you'll find that
it contains at least 50 separate STEPS (smaller independent
actions), all of which are VITAL to obtaining the desired end
result prospective clients with a reasonable success ratio!
Each of these
smaller parts acts like a STEP onto the next. Miss one and you
won't get prospects.
Each step is
an ACTION, requiring a tiny RESULT in order to actually do its
job and "graduate" the target person onto the level
of the NEXT step.
could be a realisation in the mind of the business owner. It
could be that his attention needs to be directed to something
so he can look at it in today's light before he can accept the
next bit of data.
It could be
anything... but the important thing is that it needs to HAPPEN
for else you'll LOSE that prospect.
Now, if this
makes prospecting seem like a huge challenge, don't worry. It
isn't, not if you have a set of tested and proven tools which
incorporate all those smaller actions in the right sequence...
and a troubleshooting tool which lets you find WHERE you went
wrong if you don't get prospects.
activities are, in fact, a SERIES of consecutive smaller actions.
When you drive home from work, a staggering number of smaller
actions are needed for that to occur so you achieve the intended
end result... arrive home safe and sound.
You get to
the car (and remember where you parked it), find the keys, open
the doors, sit down, put your seat belt on, start the car, move
it onto the road, stop at traffic lights, operate the gears and
clutch, make correct selections at junctions, avoid other cars...
well, you get the idea LOTS of smaller actions are required
just so you could drive home.
So, why doesn't
it feel like a major challenge, then?
got those smaller actions down pat.
You know each
of the well, you have each action "built into your nerve
system" so it occurs automatically when there's a need for
it. And because you're handling a piece of non-thinking physical
matter (the car) that never disagrees with you... unlike a living
business owner with his own willingness and determination.
there are traffic regulations whose disregard is punishable by
law... which certainly don't exist in marketing.
See, in marketing

to market your Accounting services to business owners, there
are no rules that say they must listen to you.

The point I'm
making here is that marketing Accounting services is by FAR

Now, the other
way of creating a marketing system is by EXPERIENCE.
This way is
extremaly unpopular among marketing consultants and publishers

do it RIGHT. It's the only responsible way... after all, we are
asking practitioners to invest their time, money and hopes into
our system... so we want to be triple-certain that their trust
is not misplaced.
And the ONLY
way you can achieve such certainty on functionality is through
experience. Years of it in real-life situations,

Now, if you
sense a bit of negative emotion on my part on this subject, then
you're right. I can't put to words my dislike of these fancy
boys peddling their overpriced, untried theories which cannot

actions without extensive practical testing.
