Step Up Your Agency: Practical Forecasting for Smarter Decisions

Agency owners, want a peek into your business’s future to make smarter decisions? Good forecasting can do just that, showing you a clear view of what’s ahead for your finances and business.

Keeping track of your agency’s info is key for growth. But just looking at old data doesn’t cut it.

Want to know what’s coming? Use practical forecasting tools to see your future data and make detailed forecasts.

This way, you won’t be surprised by future financial challenges.

Do Regular Cashflow Forecasts

Keep your agency going strong by making sure you always have enough cash. Regular cashflow forecasts help you see and sort out future financial gaps, making sure your agency runs smoothly even when times are tough

Income can often be unpredictable, especially in challenging economic times. If customers fail to pay an invoice, or suppliers increase their prices, this can all start to eat into your available cash.

Using forecasting, you can extrapolate your numbers forward to which weeks, months or quarters are looking financially tight. And with enough prior warning, there’s plenty of time to look for short-term funding facilities, or to get proactive with reducing your spending.

Use forecasting to plan ahead and stay safe from unexpected financial issues.

Do Sales and Revenue Forecasts

A successful agency needs steady sales and reliable revenue. Like cash flow forecasts, revenue forecasts show your future sales and how much revenue is likely to be brought into the business in the future weeks and months, keeping you on track with your profit goals and letting you manage your working capital in a more practical way. 

This insight lets you confidently invest in new projects and growing your team, helping your agency grow.

Try Out Scenario Planning

Even though the future is unpredictable, being ready is crucial. Use what-if scenarios to check out different situations and see their possible outcomes. This approach helps you make smart decisions, making sure your agency stays strong no matter what comes.

What if there’s an economic recession? What if our sales increased by 25%? What if we raised our prices by 10% next quarter?

What if we lost a quarter of our customers? By plugging the relevant data into your forecasting engine, you can run these scenarios and see how each option pans out. That’s massively useful when the worst (or the best) does happen.

Update Your Strategy With Forecast Insights

By making the most of your forecasting tools, you give your board, your finance team and your advisers the most insightful data and projections to work with.

A good business plan is designed to flex and evolve to meet the needs of the changing market – and the changing needs of your own business strategy. By making use of your cashflow forecasts, revenue projections and what-if scenario planning, you give yourself the insights needed to update your strategy and your business plan.
