It is important to understand that unlike traditional consulting you will have a unique relationship with your business owner clients. Using the 8 Drivers, Benchmarking with BizBench, and other proven business processes and procedures you will help your clients achieve greater resell value of the business, clarity of objectives, priorities, strategies, plans, and actions to provide the greatest level of business and personal success. Value Builder™ Your Success Value Builder™ Universal Accounting SchoolWhy should you enroll now to become a certified Value Builder provider: It works! This is what you can look forward to when you work with your business owner clients:

  • Respect and Appreciation – You will help people take control of their businesses and their lives.
  • Getting Paid What You Are Worth – You are paid a premium because the ROI is so great with your clients.
  • You’re the Expert, you work when and where you want – You make your own hours (full-time or part-time). * Work with the clients at their business, they can come to you, you can work with them remotely

Listen to John explain “How to Make Your Bookkeeping Business Built to Sell” and learn how this also applies to YOU and your clients as well as the method for analyzing and moving your business towards ultimate health and potentially salability:

Why business owners don’t see accountants as their “coach” and what you can do to CHANGE it. See what you can do to become a Profit & Growth Expert.  Consider this, How many business owners have you met that you know you can help, but they won’t engage in a conversation about planning their eventual exit from their business? They’ll say they aren’t thinking about leaving any time soon.  Or that they already have everything planned out.  Or that they don’t have the time to spend planning an exit when they’re so busy running the day-to-day operations.

There are 5 questions every advisor should be asking their clients—questions that will shine a light on helping an owner connect to why they started their business, what they want out of it, and how you can help them get it.

Become a Value Builder provider (VB) and learn:

    • The 5 essential questions to ask every business owner up front to ensure a happy and lucrative exit
    • The 2 major factors that lead business owners to sell
    • How to make sure a business owner’s reasons for leaving correspond to the type of exit they’re planning
    • The best ways to help business owners balance how much they want to get for their business versus how much they need for a satisfying exit
    • The statistically proven program that advisors use to double the value of their clients’ business
    • 12 modules of the Value Builder Engagement
    • Set-it-and-forget-it marketing tools that work 24/7 to nurture your prospects
    • Leveraging The Challenger Sale methodology to win consulting work. – The Challenger Sale is a new sales methodology which is fast replacing the consultative selling approach you learned starting out. It’s based on the premise that today, business owners can learn a lot more about you — through sites like LinkedIn and Google – before they call you. Business owners are coming into a discovery meeting with a potential coach much more informed, and it requires that you take a different approach to selling – one based on challenging your prospect’s point of view.

Why Owners Don’t Buy Coaching From Their Accountant from The Value Builder System™ on Vimeo.

Let’s talk about how you land new business owner clients.

It’s the lifeblood of any advisory practice but it can be tricky. Here at Value Builder, we have worked with hundreds of business advisors and discovered that many of the most successful individuals use at least one of the following three lead generation strategies:

  1. Piggyback Speaking

This strategy involves approaching the organizers of events and offering yourself up as a speaker. Instead of having to fill the room with business owners, you’re “piggybacking” on the organizers efforts to drive attendance to their event and you get to be positioned as the expert.

  1. Sales Navigator

Sales Navigator is a paid product offered by LinkedIn. It gives you a way to query the LinkedIn database with very specific criteria (e.g. CEOs of roofing companies, with 10-99 employees based in Houston or software company founders based in San Jose who graduated from Stanford). Once you find a prospect, you can use LinkedIn’s messaging platform called “inMail” which, according to LinkedIn, is up to 30 times more responsive than a cold prospect call.

  1. Drip e-mail

One of the inherent problems with being a business advisor is that it takes a while to develop the trust required to get business owners talking about a potential exit. It takes them months – even years – to become convinced that they are ready to exit. Trying to stay in touch with hundreds of owners can be exhausting if you’re doing it one-by-one which is why savvy professionals have a drip marketing campaign where they are sending out thought-provoking content each week. This ensures that you stay top of mind with your business owner prospects.

The one common denominator across all three of these strategies is that they are enabled by The Value Builder System™. If you’re keen to learn how business advisors leverage Value Builder, enroll and you’ll learn:

  • The 5 Best Ways to reach business owners through Piggyback Speaking
  • Our ranking of the 6 best B2B lead generation tactics
