The way in which many small businesses are getting their bookkeeping and accounting done is changing. With the convenience of online technology and the Internet making the world a smaller place, you may find yourself feeling like this colleague. He emailed me asking how can we compete…
“I received an email from an Indian-based company offering all things accounting / bookkeeping via internet at £6 per hour. So as we are going more and more automated and not requiring to live local to clients, how can I compete?”
Have you been trying to move toward that highly exalted ideal of ‘Trusted Advisor' and come up with advisory service packages to attract more clients?
If you've felt stuck and not sure exactly how to do this, you're not alone. Embracing change amid the disruptive changes in our profession is not easy.
In fact, this is the question that was asked in one of our All Access Pass member meetings recently. Here's a 3-minute video clip where you can listen in. It may spark some ideas on where to begin when you want to create truly effective advisory service packages that will distinguish your practice from the competition.
Advisory Service Packages Notes:
Member Question:What Would You Include in an Advisory Service Package?
The prediction is an old one: accounting professionals need to be embracing change and transform our role with clients. We need to go from providing compliance services and move to the so-called ‘trusted advisor' role. The thing is, it's no longer a prediction.
Not good if we want them to come to us for advice.
Now is the time for us to push past our comfort zones and start embracing change. To help with that, here are five ways to navigate the path from compliance to advisory in the face of automation and thinking machines.
