3 Things To Think About When Introducing A New Payroll Service To Your Clients
Are you an accountancy firm who offers payroll services to your clients? Do you want to expand your payroll services and generate new income for your business? Great! BrightPay Connect makes it easier than ever to do just that, but you need to know how to sell the idea to your clients first.
Most businesses are finding themselves in extremely challenging circumstances with the COVID-19 restrictions and aftermath that will come. For some business owners, COVID-19 presented businesses with a unique opportunity to sit back and assess every element of their business. It’s given them time to ask hard questions.
- Where could I be saving money?
- What’s making me the most profit, and what isn’t?
- What does the future look like for my business?
- How can I best prepare myself and my staff for that future?
For a huge proportion of those businesses, modernisation is at the forefront of their mind. The COVID-19 pandemic has shown us that e-commerce isn’t just a bonus anymore, it’s an essential safety net that every business needs now. So really, this is a perfect time to start talking to your clients about how modernising their payroll processes makes sense for their business moving forward and how you can do it for them.
3 Things To Think About When Introducing BrightPay Connect as a New Payroll Service To Your Clients
Introducing a new service to your payroll clients isn’t always as simple as we’d like it to be. Yes, you know that it would be great for their business and maybe they do too, but it’s likely that they’ll still need some convincing to get them over the line and on board. So, here are 3 things to keep in mind when introducing BrightPay Connect as a new payroll process.
1. What Does Your Client Need
Before you make your case to your clients, you need to be sure that you’re offering them the best service for their business. Every client is different in one way or another, and this means that a one-size-fits-all approach to their payroll just isn’t going to work. It’s also not going to give them confidence in your ability if they think you don’t understand their business, so doing your homework here will really pay off.
In order to get your client on board with your new payroll offering, it’s useful to think about what challenges they’re facing right now regarding payroll, and whether BrightPay Connect is a right fit for them. BrightPay Connect offers a whole range of additional benefits, so think about how these extras can save your clients time. Begin your introduction by showing your clients that they’re in safe hands because you fully understand their payroll challenges and you’ve got just the product to help them make their payroll processes even easier than it’s ever been before.
2. How Can You Provide Added Value
So now that you’ve established how BrightPay Connect can modernise your client’s payroll process, it’s time to pitch the benefits to them. For most clients, this is a simple case of informing them about the HR features they may not have themselves including:
- Client payroll portal
- Payslip library
- Employee payroll app
- Annual leave management
- HR document upload feature
- Automated payroll reports
You can also present BrightPay Connect as a time saving opportunity by explaining to them that the cloud functionality frees them up to dedicate additional resources to other aspects of the business.
3. What’s The Bottom Line
Every client, whether big or small, is always trying to find new ways to cut costs, reduce administration and maximize profits (without cutting quality services). And in today’s climate, most businesses don’t have any choice in keeping their costs down as much as possible. So, one of the best ways you can sell your payroll services to your clients is by simply showing them just how cost effective it is.
BrightPay Connect offers highly competitive pricing options where users are billed based on usage. The usage subscription model is based on the number of active employees in the billing month. The more clients you have the lower your cost per employee, which means you can pass the savings along to them. You can also find ways to make it even more tempting to your clients, such as offering them a free trial period, or a special deal if they refer a new client to your bureau. This is totally up to you, but don’t be afraid to be creative with how you cost this service.
