Smile if You Want Repeat Business

Winning new customers is always harder and more expensive than selling to existing customers. There are many ways in which you can keep customers and sell to them time and time again. But there are also things you can inadvertently do that drive your customers away. Could you be driving customers away without realising it?

My wife and I recently visited an old…

A good bookkeeper does more than bookkeeping

Yes, all your business transactions need to be recorded, and this most bookkeepers will do. But what more can you get for your money?

Through Sharp Accounting Solutions, I can provide management account reports, from profit & loss, balance sheet, variance reports, cash statements and forecast and more.

So what the hell does a Virtual Assistant Do?

I decided to write this post following some marketing that I undertook a while ago and the resulting conversations that I had with business owners provided a unique and shocking discovery for me!

I spent some time doing some marketing calls to local businesses asking them if they would mind assisting me in raising my profile locally in my area. Whilst I conduct business in many…

Customer Service - Why is it so important?

Why is customer service so important?

  • In the long run, good customer service is the only way to grow a successful business.  Satisfied customers come back to buy more and also tell other potential customers about your service
  • Good customer service forms a virtuous circle with employee satisfaction.  People like to work for a business that they can be proud of and they like being able to make customers happy

US Shutdown - Who, What, When, Where, Why (and How)

When I read that the American lawmakers have shutdown non-essential services leaving nearly a million government employees on unpaid leave, ‘furloughed’ as they say in the States, I couldn’t quite believe they had gone down this road again – politicians gone mad!

Avoid Killer Clients

Do you ever dread answering the phone and discovering it’s one of those clients that’s always getting you down? Complaining or demanding more for less with unrealistic expectations? Asking you to do work you hate doing, at times you don’t want to, for prices that are too low? Then it’s time to fire the dud clients and hire the ideal ones!
