Most CPAs in the US are overworked–working far too many hours–for far too little reward. This needs to change.
The single biggest reason for working too many hours for too little reward is the wrong pricing model. The old-fashioned pricing model of pricing based upon the hours spent results in low prices, frequent write-offs, and fee disputes.
This is crazy and needs to change. The profession needs to embrace value pricing fully.
Discover the secrets of value pricing from one of the world’s leading thinkers on the subject, Mark Wickersham FCA.
Mark Wickersham – Chartered Accountant, public speaker, and #1 best-selling author – is known as the most sought after profit improvement expert in the accounting community. He is famous for helping accounting firms double their profits in less than 18 months without working harder or doing any uncomfortable marketing. Mark is passionate about this great accounting profession. He believes that we have the power to make a profound difference in our clients’ lives, and in return, accountants should be very richly rewarded. Unfortunately, the reality is very different; benchmarking studies show over half of the accounting firms are making a true economic loss. Mark wants to CHANGE that. He is passionate about the accounting profession and helping accountants to become much more profitable. He believes every firm – including you – has the potential to double profits using the 7-step “Fastest Way To Double Your Profits” formula. He also strongly believes that the old business model (the way accountants are taught to run accounting firms) is commercially stupid and UNETHICAL. We owe it to our clients to change our focus. Mark is also a widely published author on practice issues. In May 2011, his book, “Effective Pricing for Accountants,” was a number 1 Amazon bestseller. His other books include “A Practical Approach to Value Pricing” and “How to Build a Successful Bookkeeping Business,” both of which have been widely acclaimed.
