The stats are in your favor; learning QuickBooks is a great business decision.Becoming a QuickBooks Specialist would provide you with countless ways to bring in more business, increase your income, and make your job easier.
New Income Opportunities
If nearly 80% of small businesses use QuickBooks; where’s the income opportunity, you ask? You can offer QuickBooks set-up and consultation services for $65-$95 per hour. You’ll find companies who want to do their accounting tasks themselves, but need help configuring QuickBooks to meet their needs. And once you’ve helped a company set up its initial QuickBooks system, who do you think they’ll turn to for help? You, of course! After all, you’ll have the training and expertise they’ll need whenever they run into a problem.You can compliment your QuickBooks services by offering QuickBooks support. Consider this: Intuit charges $75 an incident and $349-$600 per year for support. That’s too pricey for most small business owners; you could offer QuickBooks support for a more reasonable fee and draw in more clients in need of a little QuickBooks help.
Attract New Clients
Geometric growth, remember? With QuickBooks expertise, you can increase your services by appealing to both new and existing clients. The secret to obtaining new clients is to begin with at least a small portion of their accounting pie, with the expectation that your portion of the pie will grow as the company and its accounting needs grow. You can begin by automating a business’s accounting process. And even if businesses are doing the books themselves, they will need help in certain areas or have problems that only you can solve. Taxes and depreciation come to mind immediately, along with installation support, accruals, job costing, estate planning, and a myriad of additional services that only you can offer. And once your QuickBooks clients recognize the value and competence of your expertise, they’ll come to you for other accounting and bookkeeping needs.
The biggest complaint we hear from accountants and bookkeepers is that the information provided by their clients is often difficult to sort out and in some cases unusable. This is true whether the client is doing the books by hand or through QuickBooks. Your QuickBooks services will enable your clients to get going and continue in the right direction. You’ll quickly find that the information they give you will be useable, making your job easier.
