We have learned from experience that small business owners are a unique group, especially in the early stages. Deciphering their entrepreneurial mindset routinely perplexes larger organizations looking to provide a service. Even though these owners may appreciate the need for a 3 or 5 year business plan the reality for them is more like a rough draft monthly plan. Typically, early stage businesses do not respond well to future “Return on Investment” messages or “Value Received” over time projections because they're looking to fix something right now.
Like all businesses they seek service first... They want the seller to understand their need and to be oriented on what they bought. They want to know what to do next, who to contact with questions, how to pay, how to receive additional services, how to add features and they want it all included within their service agreement. When received they will reward good service with their loyalty.
So, that’s a good thing... but it’s a two-way street. They will be loyal to service providers who are loyal to them. They’ll go out of their way to maintain the relationship because what they have learned about you is more comforting than what they don’t know about someone else.
And more than anything, they want consistency... They’re looking for relationship builders. Don’t sell, listen because they're searching for a willingness to understand their concerns.
So, here’s the question... in short, have we been describing your thoughts...? If yes, then in the time since you started your entrepreneurial journey has your internal bookkeeping, payroll or tax reporting become frustrating and time consuming? Have you been encouraged to find a good service that can assist you? What about strategic planning?
If you've put off that advice thus far, it generally means you’ve been spending most of your time growing your business and managing most roles yourself or with the assistance of a small staff. Now might be a good time for some research though, because now, you're involved with more than recording payables and receivables. Now, you’ll want to guarantee the security, power and continued success of your business.
