I am amazed that when I ask a small business owner if they have a “business model,” many of them shrug their shoulders and say no.
A business model is sort of like a map to help you get where you want to go. As the saying goes, “you can’t get there if you don’t know where you’re going.”
ByTheBook Keepers delights in helping you “find your way.”
Here is an overview of our business model that you can use as a guide. It can be as short or as long as you like and you should review it at least monthly, fine tune it or change it as your market conditions warrant:
1. Our clients are:
a. Small business owners who are just starting out.
b. Small business owners who have been in business for at least a year and know their time is better spent on building their business.
c. Solo professionals such as attorneys, consultants, business coaches who “just don’t have time” to keep their own books.
d. Taxpayers of all types who need help with tax preparation, tax planning and representation when the IRS calls for an audit or overdue taxes.
2. Our purpose is: to help business owners focus on building their business, not building their books, and to help them prepare for tax time.
3. We deliver our services through Xero and QuickBooks Accounting programs, and additional programs that can feed into them.
4. Our pricing is: We price our services competitively in the market place with the overriding principle of delivering more value that what we charge.
5. Our Principles are:
a. We provide the best of service possible.
b. We provide services timely and correctly.
c. We deliver what we say, when we say we will do it.
d. We deliver services with integrity.
What is your business model?
