Your clients and prospects will soon be dealing with 2014 sticker shock when it comes to their business expenses. Not only will everyday business equipment and supplies increase, but other essentials like shipping, healthcare, office rents, and administrative costs will as well.
Take this opportunity to sell your MSP services by letting them know how they can save money by using your services, and use these savings to counteract their increasing expenses in 2014.
These are some of the predicted cost increases for 2014:
- Shipping costs will increase by 5%
- Healthcare costs will rise by at least 7%
- Payroll expenses will increase by 3.1%
- Rents will increase due to payroll increases.
- Insurance costs will rise by 10%
- Accounting costs will rise due to increased regulations
- Travel and Entertainment costs will increase by 3-5%
You can ease their concerns by showing them how you can save them money, and counteract these increases, by using your MSP services.
For example, you can save them money by:
- Converting their variable, unplanned IT expenses to fixed, predictable ones.
- Removing the costs of hiring (and firing) in-house staff, paying benefits such as sick leave, health insurance, workmen’s’ compensation, and Social Security contributions.
- Preventing the cost impact of a system failure, that can cripple their business and decrease revenue.
- Providing free advice on security and back-up storage systems anti-virus software, and 24 x 7 monitoring for critical systems.
- Increasing the efficiencies of in-house IT employees by handling routine IT services.
