Course Description

Business Development is crucial to the health of CPA firms and an important factor in the track to partnership for individuals. 

The first step in the process of gaining new business is understanding prospecting. 

When you’ve worked hard for the opportunity to get in front of a business prospect, you want to be sure you are making the most of it and presenting your firm’s capabilities to their best advantage. 

With so much competition out there among other CPA firms, how do you stand out and win that potential client over?

Prospecting and setting sales appointments are arguably the most important step in building an effective sales process. But it’s also tricky to do. To secure appointments, you have to be strategic, bold, and relentless. To put it bluntly, you have to earn it.

You should need to know when to ask for an appointment (and when not to), how to leverage technology for appointment scheduling, and how to prevent momentum-killing no-shows. But the proper discovery, confidence, and setting a conversational tone are also crucial to securing the appointment.

The fact that they agreed to meet with you in the first place is a great sign. But much of your selling success hinges on your ability to lead an effective first conversation and get them to agree to a second conversation with you.
