Kwikwap Training Pretoria (February 2019)


Lets start the website training session with a short accounting lesson:

Advertising is a variable expense and not a fixed expense!

For most small business owners time = money. This morning is an example of time and money spend on your business website which is an advertising tool for your business. You can also spend time doing work on your website such as a newsletter or blog entry, adding faq's to your website or you could spend direct money on Google advertising.

When your accountant prepares your annual income statement you will normally see the following under the heading expenses:

Expenses  
Advertising R12,000
Bank Charges R12,000
Commission R60,000
Depreciation R20,000
Electricity R50,000
   
Total expenses R154,000

 

These are typical annual financial statements drawn up for the receiver of revenue and not management accounts where expenses are viewed differently or should be viewed differently.

In this example the commission and the advertising should be viewed as variable expenses, that is expenses which varies as your turnover varies. For example commission is only paid when a person has closed a deal for the company. The same should be said if your advertising is done correctly. Advertising and spending time and or money on your webiste should not be viewed as a normal fixed expense, an expense which you would have to pay no matter what your turnover is.

The reason for this introduction is that we want you to:

  • Think differently about your time and money when it comes to your website
  • Create a great website which will result in people wanting to make use of your services
  • Consider making use of Google advertisements

With that introduction we thank you for your attendance and the time and money invested in your website, making us look good when you get the results!
