3. Segment, benchmark and triage your clients
Many accounting firms don’t use a CRM system. Even more aren’t able to pull off a breakdown of their clients figures by revenue (or the other key numbers).
Being able to look at your client base from lots of different angles gives you the opportunity to be much more proactive with the advice and support you are giving.
A great place to start in this environment is to triage your clients. Using the firm data tags in Clarity’s Portfolio View and glancing at the 7 key numbers, note down which clients are Critical, Serious, Stable and Growing. You can then adjust the urgency and tone of your communication with them.
Do you have a niche or specialism within your firm? You can benchmark your clients in the same industry and use this information to tailor your advice and focus of your conversations.
4. Simple, hi-impact, visual report
You can send out a profit and cash potential report directly from Clarity. Tell your clients you’ve been thinking about them and crunching their numbers. Show them that with some focus, actions and a layer of accountability, what can be achieved within their business.
This simple report is a great way of engaging your clients and encouraging them to book in a meeting with you. Your opportunity to get to the bottom of what each business owner wants to achieve and putting a plan together to make that a possibility.
Within Clarity, it’s never been easier to identify who needs funding conversations. Using the Portfolio View, you can sort by who in your client base has the biggest ‘cash gap’. These will be your most critical clients to speak with first. Of course, it may not be critical.
But you won’t necessarily know until you reach out. The answer might be to do a cash flow forecast or bring in credit control to recall outstanding debtors. Or the answer might be that they need to apply for additional funding. Either way, you have quickly identified who in your client base needs to be speaking with you and now.
So, those were the 5 ways of generating quick wins using Clarity. Take action today and grow your firm’s profitable revenue with Clarity.
