Hi Connor I don't have a Mac but I've an iPhone & iPad so this is still relevant to me. I use Pocket - on the Apple devices I send things to Pocket to read later via Tweetbot for iOS. Then once I've read it, If I really like it and want to keep it, I store it in Evernote. I dIdn't know about lots of these Apps and Skype Call Recorder is of particular interest to me. Thanks Connor - I always love to find new apps :) ~ Helen"
Last year I kept mine - no parking violations! I just made sure that every time I parked, I paid. Park, pay, lock. Very specific - so I second your advice. I think some people make plans that are just too grand and sweeping, then they set themselves up to fail as these resolutions are not realistic. Great article and very timely Elaine :) ~ Helen"
I've been thinking about this - I think the answer if yes, Deferred Revenue principle will always apply. The sale itself and the receipt of cash are two separate transactions. Let's imagine that you paid a subscription for a year in advance to ABC SaaS. After 3 months, ABC goes into liquidation, now you have only received 3 months of service but paid for 12. You would have a claim against the company's liquidator for non delivery of service for 9 months. The company should have provided for this in the Balance Sheet in the Deferred Revenue account. As a customer, it is not advisable to sign such an agreement.If ABC SaaS company provided poor service you would want to have some recourse. What a great question Sian! Thanks :)"
You are spot on Warren, the Deferred Revenue principle applies to any business where you get paid in advance for a period of time, not just SaaS companies. For example, if you belonged to a Business Coaches Association, and paid them a membership fee for a year, that Association would have to apply the Deferred Revenue principle to your membership. I'm delighted that you found the post useful Warren. ~ Helen"
Hi Niall One of the things about writing B2B content that I find challenging is the balance between providing valuable content and the need to present that in the context of what you do. I have delivered several seminars/written content for accountants, about using content and social media for practice development. I've always been asked to do this rather than pro-actively sought it as a main income stream. The requests have come from either an accountancy body, or from accountants directly. However, I merely practice what I preach, "preaching" or coaching is not my main thing. This week I met an accountant who has been to a few of my "gigs" / read my stuff and thought I was a marketeer for the accounting profession. He had no idea that I was an accountant - one who just happens to be up front about the tactics that I use, and who shares it with my colleagues. So, it's a case of the shoemaker's shoes for me - and while B2B marketing is not hard sell, I need to make sure that I am seen in the right context when I do that type of "by-product" work. On the other hand, there is nothing worse than reading a post that has been written solely for the purpose of being self promotional, and contains no real value for the reader. As you rightly point out in the beginning of your post - it's all about being authentic! Great post Niall, good tips there, thank you, ~ Helen "
