Learn How Value Pricing Works
You'll establish that initial set cost using your hourly rate to calculate the time to attract additional clients. And start by giving folks a new, fair price. Therefore, multiply that predetermined cost by 1.5. Your new inexpensive rate will be that. And you'll add individuals to that group of three. But once you sign up those three individuals for your new fair rate, you'll see that people aren't as price-sensitive as you first believed.

How Are Businesses Utilizing Taxdome's Automation?
Statistically, 90% of tax users have already automated something in their business because that's part of the onboarding process. Taxdome always promotes automation. Companies help them scale their trade just in general to be more efficient and alleviate some pain. 
02:02
June 24, 2022
The Benefits of Automation
Taxdome automates client sign-up. If you start automating that process, they might begin to have clients sign up on their own using a link if they already have a portal where they have to enter clients manually. They receive instructions through email after signing up. The easiest thing to automate is that. Once that occurs, though, individuals begin to form concepts in their minds and become unwilling to return.

The Second Principle of Subscription
People will spend more in smaller increments over a longer period of time than they will in a single transaction. That is most likely not rocket science to anyone listening.

Ford Baker - How to Double Your Revenue Without Increasing Expenses with BaCo Tech
Ford Baker, CPA, has over 35 years of experience in the public accounting industry, with over 20 of experience running a firm, BaCo Group, PLLC. In that role, Ford constantly sought to improve the efficiency of his firm through technology and forward-thinking. His passion was built out of a unique backstory; in 2012 he weighed almost 400 pounds, but by 2014 he had changed his life and rode a bicycle from Canada to Mexico down the Pacific Coast Highway. He had a passion and focus on eliminating the clutter in his practice that created the 400-pound version of himself that he did not want to see return. Ultimately, Ford developed an in-house transaction-based workflow using Excel and various other off the shelf utilities that make gathering data and working with data more real-time. This workflow concept can change the industry from a reactive service from putting last year’s balances on last year’s returns to proactive services, teaching clients the impact of this year’s numbers on their business, its exit value, and next year’s tax bill, today.
