Before I let you have this week’s opportunities, I’ve been asked by a few people who haven’t been with us since the start to explain what these e-mails are all about in as few words as is possible, so here’s a summary:
They are for proactive accountants, lawyers, and others who provide support to British business owners.
They help you, and in turn your clients, by:
(i) enabling you to provide an added value service at no charge to yourself. This will help you move away from commodity price comparisons with your competitors;
(ii) helping your clients achieve their business and personal goals. Doing so will enhance your reputation as a solution finder, differentiating you from your technician competitors;
(iii) giving you, and your clients, options for solving their problems that neither you nor they would otherwise have. This is because you leverage our and others’ clientbases, contacts, and time – things that are currently outside of what or who you know;
(iv) giving you a chance of earning more fees both from your existing clients and by attracting better quality clients. It will also reduce your client attrition rate. You won’t have to waste your time going out into the highly competitive marketplace, engaging in pointless networking to attract what will probably be pretty poor quality work.
Once you receive an e-mail all you have to do is cross check it with what you know of your client base and contacts – who do you know who can provide what the people listed below need? Often it will give you an opportunity to call a client, to discuss what they need right at this moment from you or generally. This shows you care, that you have their interests uppermost in your mind. You’re seen as part of the solution to their problems, not part of the problem. This alone will differentiate you from most of your competition.
Because it’s all done on a no-names basis, client confidentiality is respected until you decide otherwise – only after consultation with your clients/contacts do you have to reveal their identity to the ‘other side’. And then you drive the solution forward at the pace you dictate, on the terms you agree.
My fees for my hard work are paid by your client, not you, and then only if a solution is found through me. There’s no upfront fee, no cancellation charge. Fees are success-based and a fraction of the benefit your client receives.
So, if you are the sort of person who works with clients to help them achieve their aims, then this is for you. Try it, it’s simple, there’s nothing to lose, everything to gain.
If however you’re stuck in yesteryear trying to solve 21st Century problems using 20th Century techniques, or if you just don’t have the time to support your clients in the ways they need from you RIGHT NOW at this time in the continuing recession, then just unsubscribe by clicking the unsubscribe button at the bottom of the page.
