Business Strategy

Do you want even more business strategy and growth advice from your accountant?

Business Strategy services in Harrogate

Are you struggling to find customers, or keep the ones you have? Or are you unsure of your pricing?

We can work with you throughout the year to make sure you get the most out of your business. We are specialists in business strategy and business growth – we have worked with lots of businesses to help them set their business goals and then develop a strategy to achieve them. This is then supported by a detailed plan to support this.

If you don’t know where you want to get to, how will you ever get there?

You may need help in putting together a plan from scratch, or perhaps you need someone to give you a gentle nudge every month to make sure you’re on track? Or do you have a specific problem, for example you need to get more customers? We can give you whatever support you need. The problems we can help solve include:

  • What do I want to achieve? – Sometimes, you need someone to help you work out what you actually want to achieve from your business. Do you want to build a massive business, or do you want freedom and time to do other things? We can work with you to crystallise these goals.
  • How do I get there? – We can help you plan to achieve your goals.
  • How do I get more customers? – We can work with you to develop a marketing plan to identify your ideal customers and then get them to speak to you.
  • How do I keep my current customers? - You may want them to buy more from you, or just keep them loyal. We can help you with this.
  • Does my marketing work? – We can help you measure the return on your marketing. Cheap marketing isn’t always the best – you need to know what’s working for you so you can do more of it.
  • Is my price right? – We’ll look at the effects of putting your price up or down? What is the “magic” price? If you’re underpricing, how do you put your prices up without losing customers?
  • I set plans, but I never stick to them – Perhaps you need a critical friend to meet with and keep you on track. The best plans are worth nothing if they get ignored – they need to be implemented. We’ll hold you to account to make sure you get stuff done.
  • How am I doing? – We can produce management accounts so you know exactly how you’re performing financially and against other key indicators. It’s not just cash and profits, it could be number of customers or return on a marketing campaign. We’ll work with you to identify what’s important to you…and track it.
