The engineers want to know about the tool’s whizzes and whirrs–what it can do for them and why it beats competing products. To see all these record stores in America shut down, it’s awful. Then there are the perks that usually come with the job.
Ken McElroy, author of “The ABCs of Real Estate Investing,” has a method he uses to find prospective investment real estate. He’s been at it for a long time but, he says, no matter how much experience he gains, he always uses the same method.
Shipping costs/delivery charges (Often these costs are charged separately from the product and are additional cost. Make sure they are listed separately and itemized for a clear overview. If they are “thrown in the deal”, make sure you still include them and marked them as an added bonus with the charge marked as nil. This is a great way to show your customer the value he is getting).
I have been working with an Agent in Canada for the past 2 years. When I was a manager with a large life insurance company, he was one of my agents. I was impressed with Tim Laskey from the first moment I met him. He is a sincere, interesting, knowledgeable, bright and articulate individual.

Closely related to a futile drive for perfection is a need to “finish” the site. This is also a trap. Website design is a lot like building a house. Once the site is up it needs to be maintained and improved. Your accounting or CPA website won’t ever actually be “finished”. If you wait to take your website public until it’s “finished” you’ll never get it up, and if you ever allow yourself to treat your website as “finished” it will quickly slide into obsolescence.
Now we go back to the 180 Trillion dollars that run through the Federal Reserve every year. Remember how big that number is because it is very important. What if there was a four percent transaction fee on every dollar that went through the treasury every day. That would equal 7.2 TRILLION dollars. For the year of 2009 the federal budget is an estimated 3.1 TRILLION dollars. That would leave a 4.1 TRILLION dollar surplus to pay down debt or stimulate the economy. Personally the word surplus scares me a bit. Politicians usually just buy votes with the extra money and don’t really accomplish anything with it. I have a solution for that later on. I think you will like it.
Your website is an investment in your practice. Handle it like you’d treat a new lobby, a cold-call campaign, or any normal marketing expense. It doesn’t matter if you opt to use a custom accounting site design or begin with a template. What matters is that you get the lead out, get the site up quickly, and let your customers and prospects observe as you unremittingly form it to suit their needs.
