One of the key piece of information potential clients want to know is what the fees would be.
So far I have not put fees on my website for illogical reasons:
1) Do not want to give this information away to competitors - it is easy to find this out
2) I could get more from client than what I I have in mind - not a good approach and so far it has not worked.
I am now thinking it is time to state the fees on my website. I have a good idea what to charge. It could be a time saver in that if the clients cannot afford my fees they can go elsewhere. Plus there is added advantage of transparency from the outset.
Furthermore, I want to a Xero seminar a few months ago where they advocated stating the fees on the home page. Listening to them., it made sense.
I understand client needs are different so we have to price appropriately. Most of the clients I have taken on fall within the standard fees category.
I am now thinking about taking the bold step (is it?) of putting my fees on my website. This would include exactly what would be covered by the fees.
Fees that would be stated are:
1) Limited company
2) Sole Trader
The question I am asking myself should I includes fees for:
1) Accountants references
2) Companies House secretarial services - fees for this?
3) Xero training
Have you put your fees on your website? How has it worked? If not will you?
