If you’ve had enough of struggling to build a profitable accounting firm and you feel overwhelmed…

Now is the time to put in place the essential foundations to build a great accounting firm

Why is it so hard to build a profitable accounting firm to be proud of…

…and why are you working too hard?

Whether you are a bookkeeper or an accountant, there are 4 essential foundations for building a great accounting firm...

#1 Essential Foundation - CLARITY

First, you need to know the right strategy.  Right?

You need a clear picture of what you are trying to build.  A clear picture of the right client.  And a clear strategy for your marketing and pricing.  Without the right strategy, you will always struggle.  

Creating clarity is the first step to avoiding the overwhelm you might be feeling right now.

#2 Essential Foundation - PRICING

Next, you need to get your pricing right BEFORE you win any more clients. 

You see, if you are not charging enough, you attract the wrong clients.  This will result in low margins, working crazy long hours, and working for clients that drain your energy.  

You must get your pricing right, and stop pricing based on hours… this is an old-fashioned, redundant way of pricing in our profession.

#3 Essential Foundation - GROWTH

You want to grow your firm, right? 

Unfortunately, marketing is not like a tap you can simply switch on as soon as you need new clients.  You need to put in place the marketing foundations that will keep bringing you a consistent level of new prospective clients

You cannot leave marketing to chance.

#4 Essential Foundation - SYSTEMS

The fourth foundation is systems

There are essential systems you need so that parts of your accounting firm can run on autopilot and deliver you consistent results.

When you have these 4 foundations in place, you have the right foundations to grow your firm faster and more profitably.

  • I’m struggling to get the prices I want; I know I should be getting higher prices.
  • Clients often complain about my fees, and I find myself struggling to justify my prices.
  • I feel overwhelmed by all the things I need to do in my firm.  I don’t know what to focus on first.
  • I’m worried about cash flow and paying my bills.  Some of my clients are slow to pay.
  • I find it hard to attract the right clients.  I want clients who VALUE what I do and are fun to work with.
  • I find I must work long hours just to make ends meet. Sometimes running an accounting firm is tough.
  • I’m just not growing my firm as fast as I want.  I have no idea how to grow a successful accounting firm.

Which of these applies to you?

Don’t worry. You are not alone…

… these are common frustrations among accountants and bookkeepers.  In fact, I was once there too (when I was running my accounting firm – I started it in 1996).

The problem is, we know how to do the technical work (you are great at accounting and bookkeeping). But your technical skills will not help you build a great business.

The most common problems small accounting firms have are:

Not having a clear plan

Pricing the wrong way (the hourly mindset)

Struggling to win enough of the right clients

It starts with the right plan. The right strategy.  And a critical part of your strategy is your pricing strategy.  You do have a pricing strategy, don’t you?

When you get your pricing right, everything else follows from there.  With the right pricing, you make more money.

With the right pricing, you attract the right clients.  With the right pricing, you can work fewer hours.  With the right pricing, you have more money and time to then fix the other problems.

All the challenges, frustrations, and pain you are experiencing now is a result of the DECISIONS you have made in the past. And here’s the great news…

You can’t change the past, but you can change the future.

If you want a better future, you just make different decisions and do different things.

Don’t let these MYTHS prevent you from achieving your goals

MYTH #3It's so overwhelming! I don't know where to begin!

MYTH #2I don't have time to do this!

I know how that feels.  I made so many mistakes in the first 3 years of building my accounting firm. What I learned is this…

“You need a roadmap and a plan, then you just work the plan one step at a time.”

It takes time to build an extraordinary accounting firm. There is no magic pill. There is no quick-fix solution.

But when you take things one step at a time the results will come…

I’ll show you how to create that plan in the Value Pricing Academy.

MYTH #1 I cannot raise my prices!

No one does!  The demands of running a business keep us all extremely busy.

However, something magical starts when you build the right plan, pursue the best pricing strategy, and have a system for growth. In fact, with the right pricing strategy…

… you find you can make more money working with fewer clients!

I discovered how to do this in my accounting firm, and I will teach you the process when you enrol in the Value Pricing Academy.

There is a fear that raising prices results in losing clients.  

That’s not true.

The right client will gladly pay more when they perceive they are getting more.

We show you exactly how to do this in the Value Pricing Academy.

Introducing the Value Pricing Academy

I’m Mark Wickersham, Amazon #1 best-selling author of “Effective Pricing for Accountants” and author of “How to Build a Successful Bookkeeping Business”, “A Practical Approach to Value Pricing”, “Value Pricing for Accounting Professionals”, and “Price: The Fastest Way to Grow Profit”.

I made every mistake in the book when I started my own sole practitioner accounting firm in the 1990s.  But then I discovered value pricing, and everything changed. I figured out how to fix the mistakes which helped me sell my firm.

I have been teaching accounting firms around the world since the year 2000, helping them avoid the mistakes I made, successfully transition to value pricing and build more profitable firms.

Academy membership will show you how to implement the core foundations and create a plan that will change you from feeling overwhelmed, overworked and underpaid to…

… joining a community of other like-minded accountants and bookkeepers getting incredible results by pricing your professional services more profitably and winning better clients.

This is for you if you are an accountant or bookkeeper running your own accounting firm (or wanting to start) and you want to master value pricing, win better clients, make more money and have more fun.

Every month you learn powerful value pricing concepts, marketing to grow your firm, essential systems, and strategies, get your questions answered, learn from other people in the group, and get access to ready-to-use resources, so you hit the ground running.

Since all meetings take place online there are no travel costs.  All you need is a connection to the Internet and a computer with speakers.

Re-pricing Existing Clients

Other people pay $1,995 for the course

The most important thing to us at the Value Pricing Academy is that:

And rather than spending time, money and energy on winning new clients, the quickest way to boost profits is to re-price your existing clients.
The trouble is... your current clients know what you charged last year.
So you might feel RELUCTANT or NERVOUS to increase their prices in case they decide to leave.
But when you learn how to effectively re-price using value pricing, you'll have them actually GRATEFUL FOR A PRICE INCREASE.


This course alone could REPAY YOUR INVESTMENT in the Value Pricing Academy

In this part of the training we will look at 5 strategies for getting fast results. Choose the one you like best and implement it right away for results.

Get clear on your mindset and then create your plan. This session comes with a 'Re-pricing Results Tracker' to help you check your progress.

Before you can start sending out your contract renewal letters you need clarity over your packages. Suggested package examples are included.

In this video I will walk you through the contract renewal letter - a powerful process for re-pricing your existing clients effectively.

Just take it one step at a time.

The Value Pricing Academy is definitely NOT for everyone

Our Academy is the most complete, comprehensive way to build a profitable accounting firm.

It keeps you focussed on getting your pricing right, getting the right clients with effective marketing and putting the critical systems in place so your firm runs like clockwork. But… 

...it’s definitely not for everyone.

If you’re looking for a magic button or a “get-rich-quick” formula for building an accounting firm, this isn’t for you.

Building a profitable accounting firm takes work and effort.

If you’re thinking about starting an accounting firm in the future, this level of the Academy is probably not right for you (yet!). You need to be up and running with some clients to get the best out of the Academy. But maybe you'd like to check out Level 1.

If you want to bill by the hour (which effectively means a job) then this isn’t for you.

The Academy is centred around the concept of VALUE PRICING, which means you need to be open to a better way of pricing and wanting to make the CLIENT and delivering VALUE the primary focus of your firm.

You do not need to understand Value Pricing (we’ll teach you that), but -

You must be willing to embrace this way of thinking.

If that sounds like you, and you’re finally willing to make that commitment to yourself and your dreams, I promise you the Value Pricing Academy will be your SUREST PATH TO SUCCESS!


Remember, you’re in control. There is no minimum period to be part of the

Value Pricing Academy.

In other words, you can leave and stop the payments whenever you want.

You are in COMPLETE control.

It gets better...

Try the Value Pricing Academy for a full 30 days.

If at any time during those first 30 days you decide it’s not right for you, not only can you stop the payments, you can email my team and ask for a FULL REFUND of your first payment – no questions asked!

You do not have to give a reason!

So with ZERO risk to give it a try for 30 days, you’re probably wondering…

OK, How Much Is My Investment?

The Value Pricing Academy may not be cheap, but it shows you how to get the results you desire.

It’s a small investment in yourself that pays huge dividends in your future.

One that will pay back for the rest of your life. One that will get you pricing better. One that will give you the systems to grow profitably every year.

It’s also the best way to access training and mentoring from me, and from Jessica Fox.

When Jessica first started working with me, she said, “My income grew over 70% and my monthly recurring revenue has grown over 144% this year so far!”  

What would a 70% increase in your net income mean to you?

And she is going to teach you, during the live training, how she got those results so you can copy her.

You will be able to enrol in Level 1 of the Value Pricing Academy for a small payment of just $110 per partner every month. (Click here to see your local currency).

Remember, your investment never changes. When you are successfully enrolled in the Academy you know your investment will ALWAYS be the same (even when we add new training, tools and resources).

Put it this way… today is the very best time to join this community.

“Joining the Academy was one of the best decisions I've ever made for my business growth and stability. The value far outweighs the cost in my opinion.”

Jan Baudat, QB Jan, LLC dba: FitBooks

“The ROI is just amazing. There is no risk to joining just rewards if you put in the time and effort and adopt what is being delivered.”

So now it’s time for you to make one of two choices


You can choose to do nothing.

And as you already know, if you choose nothing… then nothing changes.


BUT, if you already know you want to price better, grow your business, make more money and have more fun...

We would love to welcome you to this community and start your transformation… in the full knowledge,


So there is zero risk to give it a try.


With the right mindset, with the right training, the right tools and with the right support, you can transform your accounting firm. My whole team (and the community) are here to help you.

If you’re still on the fence, wondering whether to take the leap, let me share one last thought with you.

Maybe you're thinking...

It all sounds great, but I just don’t have the money, energy, or time right now

… then you’re not making the choice at all!

You’re letting your circumstances make your choices for you!

If you’re struggling right now, if you find you’re working crazy hard and not making enough money, you’ll find that will always be the case until you CHOOSE another way.

It’s never the right time to make a big change. But until we do make that change, NOTHING CHANGES, and nothing gets better.

I get that, but I just can’t afford it!

The fact that you’re on this page is because you KNOW you need to change the way you price and start winning better clients. Everything about Academy membership is about getting results. Helping you get those better prices. Helping you get those better clients.

It’s an investment that will pay back. So perhaps the real question is, 

“Can I afford NOT to do this?”

What will things be like in 6 months from now if you do nothing and nothing changes?

We put the price up twice a year, so you'll need to choose quickly if you want to lock in the current low price.

Your Most Popular Questions, Answered:

Below is a list of the most common questions we get asked.  If you cannot find the answer to your question below and you have a question about the Academy, email my partner, Sarah, on: support@wickersham.co.uk.  

What makes the members of the Academy so successful?

It’s an ATTITUDE and MINDSET… we’re just the catalyst.  We focus on giving, not just the training, but the tools, resources and systems to get results.  Our most successful students show up to the live training, they get involved in the community, and most importantly, they take action.  Everything we teach has been proven to work… you just have to follow the plan.  JUST DO IT!

If I am just getting started in my accounting firm, is this still a good fit for me?

Yes.  When I started my accounting firm in 1996 I wish I had access to this.  I made so many mistakes in the first 3 years.  Mistakes that cost me ridiculous amounts of lost profit.  This is exactly the sort of support I needed back then.  The benefit of doing this early in the development of your business is you can get the strategy, foundations and systems in place, and avoid the mistakes I made.

If I don’t have many clients, will membership still help me?

That’s why one of the 4 foundations we teach is GROWTH… we give you the training to help you win more clients and grow your firm.  Think of it this way, just one new client could pay for your entire first year of membership!

I don’t have a team. Will this be too much work for me?

This training is best for solo practitioners who want to get the core foundations in place before they decide to scale through people (and that’s not essential to building a profitable virtual firm).  Most of the members of the Academy are sole practitioners, and some of those are solo practitioners.  When you get your pricing right and when you get your marketing strategy and positioning right so you attract better quality clients, you can build a very profitable accounting firm without a big team.  That’s very possible in this digital world we live in with access to so much great technology.

What is the guarantee and refund policy for the Academy?

Remember, you’re in control. There is no minimum period to be part of the Value Pricing Academy.  In other words, you can leave and stop the payments whenever you want.  At any time in the first 365 days you email my team and ask for a full refund of your first payment – no questions asked! You do not have to give a reason!  Click here to read our full terms and conditions.

Can my team go through this program with me?

Your investment is for ONE person to join the monthly trainings, breakout sessions and study groups.  If you want another team member or business partner to fully participate, they will need to join the Academy too.  However, your team can watch the recordings and work through the video-based training.

Is there any support available if I have questions or get stuck?

Absolutely.  There is the support from the entire community via the round table study group sessions.  If you have questions for me and my team you can email Sarah on: support@wickersham.co.uk.

Here's what the members of my Pricing Academies have told me...

“I have tried to learn value pricing a few times before with 1–3-part training sessions, but could not quite get the hang of it and I didn't have the confidence to implement what I did learn. I am understanding it in this program. I really get it! This program has also raised my confidence in my value and the value of the services that I offer. It makes so much sense and I want to get all of my clients on this system. One by one I am doing that now. It is making a world of difference in myself and my business.”

“The guidance received from Mark has been very valuable as I work to increase pricing and better understand the psychology behind pricing. As a result of the information I've learned I've added several new monthly clients which has helped me add more valuable revenue. Mark is very insightful and willing to help.”

Jeremy Stark


Cammie Hughes

Account Ability, Inc.

“The Academy has introduced me to many valuable concepts that will benefit my practice in the coming years. Mark teaches us how to communicate the benefits that our work brings to our clients and price our services so we can bring home a profit to our families.”

“The Academy is fantastic. I've learned a lot about value pricing from Mark which allowed me to implement value pricing in my firm and increase my profits.”

Michael Braun

Upfront Consulting

Katryna Coltess

Plus Associates Bookkeeping Inc

“If you're stuck and unsure and looking for help or answers, join - the information is very valuable. You will learn something.”

“You will easily recoup the small investment in time and membership by improving your prices and negotiations with clients.”

Stephanie Jones

Enchanted Moon Ltd

John Johnstone

JMJ Accountancy

“Mark has a true ability to explain pricing methodologies in a way that is easily understandable and that an accounting firm is able to implement. There are many straight-forward strategies to implement, and some strategies require more effort but with Mark's ongoing commitment as well as help from the group you can achieve a new level of pricing success!”

“Joining the Academy was one of the best decisions I've ever made for my business growth and stability. The value far outweighs the cost in my opinion.”
