Put Those Benchmark Tools to Use

Bridget Jackson CPA, Manager, PPA Business Consultant

Bridget takes you step by step through how to use each of the online tools created as part of PPA's 2011 Benchmark Survey resources. Using a real studio example, she'll show you exactly how to plug in your numbers in the Studio Comparison Tool and see how similar studios compare to you. Even better? She'll explain what you can learn from the resulting reports. Then, she'll demo the Benchmark Comparison Tool and how you can use it to figure out what your numbers could (or should) be!
