Are You Growing Your MSP Out of Business?
Why cash flow is so important for a growing MSP
As a growth minded MSP, you are always looking for ways to grow your business. You invest resources into sales, marketing, and customer acquisition. But MSP owners often overlook a critical part of their business when in growth mode: cash flow. In this blog post we talk about how to make the most of your investment in sales and marketing by focusing on your cash flow and collecting that hard earned revenue.
The Importance of Cash Flow for MSPs
Growing MSPs invest heavily in sales and customer acquisition. They spend money on marketing campaigns and hiring sales people, hoping to land new clients. While having a good sales process is essential, it's only half the battle. Without good cash flow, the business can suffer. It's not just about money coming in, but also about collecting that money.
If an MSP grows too quickly without focusing on cash flow, they risk running out of money. They may not be able to pay their bills or their employees, leading to a loss of credibility and trust with their clients. In addition, they may not have the resources to invest in new technologies or to provide the level of service their clients expect.
Improving Cash Flow for MSPs
One way to improve cash flow is to focus on billing and collections. MSPs should make sure they are invoicing their clients on time and following up on late payments. They should also consider offering incentives to pay online and implement a recurring billing system.
Often times, MSPs are doing some of this manually - emailing clients one off, using a spread sheet to track payments or manually reconciling checks into their accounting software. But as an industry focused on technology and leveraging automation for efficiencies, payments should not be any different.
