All businesses need to face up to the competition. Even specialised service providers may face stiff competition, such as chartered accountancy firms. Keep abreast of the times and be flexible to incorporate welcome and unwelcome changes in the business scenario. It is important for a CA firm to never slip into a state of complacency.
The three vital areas of a CA firm are:
The various services the firm renders to earn an income
Retention of existing clients and maximising the revenue earned from each account, prospecting and winning the right kind of clients.
How the firm carries on its operations to maximise profits and generate wealth.
The firm should never lose sight of these three critical areas if it wants to have sustained business.
Other revenue-generating ideas for growing your business are as follows:
1. Referral System
You need to incorporate a systematic referral process to ensure that all referrals are followed up and pursued actively until they are successfully converted into business. It makes commercial sense to have a team assigned to convert referrals into sales.
2. Upselling and cross-selling
It is essential to constantly contact your existing customers to understand if they have any additional service requirements. You need to ensure that all your customers are apprised of the range of services you can provide. This can maximise your earnings from your client base.
3. Diversify your service offerings
Every CA firm specialises in specific service areas. However, it would be advisable to diversify into related areas such as management consultancy, advisory services, expanding your customer base and ensuring sustained business.
4. Digital marketing
With many prospective clients active on social media, digital marketing is the way forward.
You need to have a website that is HTML5 compatible and is easily accessible on a smartphone or a tablet. Your content needs to be domain-specific and powerful enough to attract attention. Have gated content that can be downloaded only after sharing an e-mail id. This will ensure that you get enquiries only from serious clients with service requirements.
When you are fighting competition, the right strategy and financing options are important to reduce costs and maximise benefits from the lending operation.
Today, innovative lending products like CA loans are available in the market. Their various features make them ideal for financing initiatives by CA practices.
