How A CPA Can Help You Grow Your Business

Published by:

Vaughn CPA LovelandI was talking with the Vaughn CPA Company a Loveland cpa firm with offices in Colorado and New Mexico about how something like an accountant can help you grow your business.

The old saying “you can’t grow what you don’t measure” comes to mind.  When you let someone who is an expert in this area take a look at your books they can see things that you can’t.  They can see things you can do that will directly touch your bottom line.  They also can see where you are hemorrhaging profits.

How much does it cost you to get a lead?  How much does it cost you to get a customer?  How many times do your customers buy from you a week, month, year, or lifetime?

If you don’t know these things you can’t grow your business.  A CPA can help you discover these little known pockets of profits.

Or maybe you hate doing books, you hate doing your taxes every year.

Get someone else to do it who actually enjoys that kind of thing!

Here’s what their website says they do:

TAX PREPARATION

Northern Colorado CPA FirmOur experienced personnel have been preparing tax returns for many years as a tax and CPA firm. The business and the laws have changed, but the judgment required to accurately prepare and plan only improves with experience. Every year, we prepare more than 1000 individual, corporate, partnership, and business tax returns. Business planning and consulting and coaching go hand in hand with proper tax accounting and tax preparation.

If you have been selected for a tax audit, we can assist you to be ready for your appointment or represent you, if necessary. When your tax accounting records need to be squeaky clean, we can help. Tax audits may be intimidating and emotional.

FINANCIAL STATEMENTS

Our CPA firm performs audits, reviews and other assurance services. These services carry that extra measure of assurance that reports of Certified Public Accountants (CPA’s) have always provided. Accurate accounting records are the foundation for all financial statements, which should be prepared under generally accepted accounting principles. These statements are critical for business planning and consulting, and other financial decisions.
Audited or Reviewed Financials or Compiled statements may be required by your bank or for bonding. Construction contractors may have special requirements. Accurate accounting is the foundation for all financial information; a service we provide. Business planning and consulting begins with proper statements prepared using generally accepted accounting principles, and that may mean audited or reviewed financial statements. If you are considering purchasing a business, you may want the assurance that such statements provide.

BUSINESS CONSULTING PLANNING

How is your business doing and why do you need a consultant? Our firm asks this question early in the process. Let’s focus on where you thing a problem may exist. No matter what size business you have, how much money you gross or net, a moderate review may reveal some underlying problems that have been overlooked because you have the day to day operations, sales, collections, bills, etc. to complete. A step back is the first step of our approach to business consulting. Call VaughnCPA to find something in your company that can be fixed.

INDIVIDUAL FINANCIAL CONSULTING

Individual Financial Consulting takes effort. While we all realize that we need to do the planning, we rarely sit down and actually PLAN TO PLAN. The financial consulting offered by an outside firm, becomes a great help. Monthly scheduled meetings at neutral places, “homework” assignments and discussions on specific problem areas will become meetings to look forward to rather than a chore to be avoided. The outside influence keeps you on track and moving in the right direction.

NON-PROFIT ACCOUNTING

Organizing and operating a nonprofit corporation, or serving on the board of your favorite activity may seem a simple thing. You have a mission and a passion. These, along with a lot of hard work, may make your organization a huge success. There are some guidelines to follow and our CPA firm, will guide you through rules and regulations and give you practical advice about Non-profit accounting best practices.

NON-PROFIT TAX

One of the instructions given by the IRS and most States to nonprofit organizations is that they follow guidelines to insure that the organization is governed properly (good governance). Your bylaws should state these rules and how to use them. If they do not, then it is time for a bylaws committee to revise them to be in line with “best practices”.

NON-PROFIT CCOMPLIANCE

One of the instructions given by the IRS and most States to nonprofit organizations is that they follow guidelines to insure that the organization is governed properly (good governance). Your bylaws should state these rules and how to use them. If they do not, then it is time for a bylaws committee to revise them to be in line with “best practices”.
Bylaws may be relatively simple. There are many examples on the internet and on some State websites. These will give you the basic format and should be changed to conform to how your nonprofit actually works.

 

If any of you need help with that kind of thing. Give them a call.

Using Webinars To Grow Your Company

Published by:

Webinars are one of the easiest ways to grow your company especially with the new system Webinar JEO by Walt Bayliss is among the most powerful webinar systems out there. Walt has actually created a lot of other powerful software application tools like: Lead Geyser, Hydra Video Marketing, a content curation software, a seo keyword plugin … And now he is releasing Webinar JEO. Here’s the link If you want to see my evaluation There’s a lot of features I truly like about this software application.

You can easily record your webinars to utilize in the future or to provide your consumers a recording if they missed out on the event
You can setup evergreen webinars with any video you have. Simpy pick the times you want to provide your webby and let er rip and generate consumers on car pilot

And there’s probably a lot of other things it can do that I haven’t figured out yet!
This might be a good http://www.gotomeeting.com/webinar replacement if you would love to attempt another webinar system. A number of the top marketers in the world would say webinars are a huge part of their yearly income. In fact, Russel Brunson recently stated that if had to begin all over once more and build a company as much as the million dollar a year level, he would do it by running webinars. There’s a couple of factors I believe webinars work well. Initially, they are like a live event/seminar that individuals can go to from the comfort of their homes or watch on their mobile phone. So they get that live occasion excitement without the expense of an airplane ticket, hotel room & pricey registration cost. Two, they’re interactive. Individuals don’t wish to just sit in a class and be lectured at by a teacher. Webinars are a terrific way to teach and train people without having them feel like they’re back in high school. Three, you can offer a huge amount of value and training during your webinar and this makes the sale a lot easier. No one prefers to be sold to but everybody likes to purchase. If you have an excellent script for your webinar, it’s a lot easier sale than simply asking somebody to buy your things. Four, you can and clone your best sales discussion. We’ve all had those days where we wished we might give that very same sales talk a thousand times since we stated everything perfectly. With this system, you can actually tape your best discussion and play it to people every hour of the day without you having to be there every hour of the day. This is leverage at it’s best! You do the work one time and it remains to settle, day in and day out.

Borrowed Authority Method Review & Bonus

Published by:

Here’s my Borrowed Authority Method Review & Bonus after implementing it for the last 4 months.

Whenever I want to rank multiple spots on the 1st page of Google I use the exact method Derek teaches in this product.

Sometimes I don’t even create my own website I just use the different BAM properties he recommends.

For example, I wanted to rank for a review term for a local massage therapist here in  my city but I didn’t want to create a website for it.  The cool thing was if I got 4 referrals to him he would give me a free massage.  So I launched one of the BAM sites he recommends and it shot up to page 1 for that search term.  Then I started the linking process he recommends in Module 4 and now it’s at the #1 spot.

In this course you’re going to get 4 modules and a bonus module.  Module 1 reveals the BAM sites.  Module 2 shows how to monetize your sites.  Module 3 shares a sneaky way to use email companies to build and rank sites.  Module 4 is all about promotion and the Bonus has graphic templates and a case study were Derek used these methods to rank for one of the top launches this last year.

Go grab through my link http://www.HermitMarketing.com/BAM and I will throw in my Local Lead Maximizer Sales System as a bonus!  In the LLM Sales System I will show you how you can get clients anytime you want without having to be a sleezy sales person.

How SEO Can Help You Grow Your Business

Published by:

Nowadays everyone goes online to find a business to work with. And almost all of them will go to Google.

Google is by far the most used search engine.  Coming in 2nd is actually YouTube.   People actually search in YouTube more than that do in Bing or any of the other search engines.

When they visit Google  they will rarely ever get past the 1st page.  So if your business isn’t on the first page of Google whenever someone searches for whatever you do….they won’t be calling you.

This is why “SEO is one of the most important things a business should focus on to grow their company” said RK Castillo, CEO of Purpose Concepts, a marketing firm in Honolulu that focuses on SEO Hawaii.

Some interesting stats were released a number of years back.  When you look at the percentage of clicks that get distributed on the first page of Google.  More than half will go to the #1 spot,  13% will go to the #2 spot and then it just drops from there.   So you could even be on the 1st page of Google and not getting all the business you could get.

Think about this, what if your business was ranked at the #10 spot getting 2 out of every 100 people searching for whatever your business does to click over to your website.  If you were to get your website up to jump 5 spots up, you would double your visitors to your website, which essential doubles your business.  If you could get your website up 7 spots you could quadruple your business and if you could get all the way to #1 you would increase your business 2500%!

How you might ask?

If you are tracking and measuring.  You know exactly the action you want people to take once they visit your website and that action should be trackable.  Lets say this action is a phone call.

You should know that for every 100 people visiting your website you get X amount of calls.  For that sake of this example lets say your website has a 10% conversion rate, or 1 in every 10 people that visit your website will call you.

Lets also say that you were ranked at the #10 spot and getting 100 visitors a day to your website from that Google search.

You do a little bit of search engine optimization to your website and you get your website up to the #5 spot and now you are getting not 100 visitors a day but 200 visitors a day.  1 in every 10 visitors leads to a call.  So instead of getting 10 calls a day, you are now getting 20 calls a day.

You should also be tracking your closing rate.  If you get 100 calls how many turn into customers?  Lets say 10% again.

So you were getting 1 new customer a day from your old google ranking.  Now you are getting 2 new customers a day.  Doubled Your Business!

So you work on some more SEO….get to the #3 spot and now you are getting 400 visitors a day, 40 phone calls and 4 new customers a day. Quadrupled your business!

Get it to #1 and now you’re getting 5000 visitors a day, 500 phone calls and 50 new customers a day!

This is why you should spend some time working on your website.  Check this out For more info on how to get SEO in Hawaii

If you divide your company into these 3 different divisions: Before, During & After.

You’ll discover that each division is critical to growing your company. The Before Unit gets leads in front of your sales team. The during unit converts those leads into customers and delivers a dream come true experience. The After Unit makes sure those customers become repeat customers. Because if you can get each customer to buy from you one more time you have essentially doubled your business.
