How can MSPs make money?
The MSP industry is growing by the day. Competition is getting higher, and businesses find themselves faced with increasing customer demands.
Standing out from the crowd can sometimes be overwhelming. Not only do you need to provide reliable and trustworthy customer approaches, service offerings needs to reflect growing customer numbers; all while keeping competitive rates at the forefront. This can be a budget challenge, especially if additional team members are needed to help manage demand, and other outgoings get larger.
So, how can MSPs make sure they are noticed in the spotlight, grow business successfully, all while keeping their revenue stream in the green light? Here are a few ideas:
Ditch intensive manual processes
Demanding manual processes can, understandably, create human error. Offering a greater number of automated MSP services can cut overheads, help with reliability, increase customer numbers and give teams more time to focus on scaling business.
What flexibility is needed to help maximize profitability? Moving away from one-size-fits all price plans allows MSPs to define product catalogues and sell custom services at their own price margins, per SKU and service. A bonus for customer clarity and MSP price management and price control.
Fair is fair. Consider the cost of business overheads and resources, and manage margins closely and realistically. Price too high and customers may go to a more cost-effective competitor, price too low, business profitability could suffer if cross or up-sell strategies don’t work.
Providing custom services or product bundles can support customer needs. Why? Customers will invest to keep their business IT operations running efficiently, so adding services is a smart way to obtain new or reoccurring revenue.
