Key Considerations for Digital Marketing Agency Accounting
Digital marketing agency accounting has a lot of moving parts. For every step of a real estate transaction (from buying a property, renovating, renting, or selling it), you need to keep proper records. Here are 3 key considerations when setting your real estate accounting:
- Key Performance Indicators (KPIs). KPIs are the specific metrics you need to consider when analyzing your agency’s performance. You and your CFO should work together to define what your KPIs should be. A KPI you’re tracking for your own clients but probably not yourself is the cost per lead. The lower the CPL, the better. The only way to lower it is to know what it is in the first place.
- Chart of accounts. A chart of accounts is a comprehensive list of accounts you need to record your transactions. Your chart of accounts is needed to create reports, which show your financial results. Your chart of accounts needs to be set up that all of your transactions can be reflected. So this means having accounts for client expenses, advertising, rent, commissions, etc.
- Budgeting. Digital marketing agencies typically have a large volume of transactions. Ranging from marketing, rent, and supplies to payroll, benefits and client expenses. In order to stay afloat, you need to manage your expenses and track your results. One way to do that is through budgeting.
