There is sometimes a negative connotation that many people associate with accounting firms and the financial industry as a whole. We’re not saying we agree with the notion, but the reality is that it’s present just the same. When connecting with prospects and leads, your success relies on your ability to break through any negative implications related to your industry and connect with those leads on a more emotional and personable level.
As with all industries, selling takes skill and patience. You aren’t going to get very far with your prospects if you aren’t taking the time to genuinely understand their needs. Establishing trust in the beginning of a relationship will result in effectively generating more business. There are, however, a couple of things you need to be conscious of when speaking with your prospects.
- Be conversational. When first connecting with a lead, take the time to understand their business situation and do an extended amount of listening. After you have a full grasp of their current situation you will be able to explain to them how your firm can alleviate their current business pains.
- Offer time saving solutions. If your firm’s busy, then you should assume your prospects are busy, too. Offer them solutions that will save them time and minimize any effort their team will have to put in.
The more solutions your firm can easily provide its prospects means the more long-term relationships for your firm. Our team knows what it takes to create those long-term relationships and we offer the solutions your firm is looking for.
