BONUS: a short bonus episode from the client's perspective - "Why They Didn't Buy Part 11 - Too Good for Sales Coaching." Great CPE or CPD for accountants with tips on how to avoid complacency in thinking that you don't need any training or coaching to win business.
In these bonus episodes, we focus on the buyers of accounting services - the clients themselves. In particular how they feel, react to and experience their interactions with accountants. That includes why they buy or don't buy, why they move or stay and why they think how they think about you, your firm, your prices and your offerings.
Key takeaways from this episode include:
➯ stats from making thousands of telemarketing calls to and for accounting firms
➯ making the case for sales training to close leads generated for accounting firms
➯ the reasons why accountants win or don't win business by converting leads they are given
➯ flipping the power position for accountants meeting potential new clients and the role of humility with prospects
➯ why professional accounting advisors treat new business opportunities with a degree of complacency and even laziness
➯ comparing first new client sales appointments with first dates in the accounting world
➯ reasons why prospects don't buy an accountant or engage your firm that ultimately come down to them not feeling respected or impressed
➯ the reasons behind a complacent mindset in accountants who feel they don't need any coaching or education on turning leads into new business
➯ how accountants can understand the lifetime value of clients to facilitate better sales conversations
