The information provided in the seminar was timely and helpful. The presenters make a strong case for CPAs changing from hourly billing to fee-for-service billing and provide concrete examples of how the system can work. They also include useful hand outs which can be adapted and used in any practice.
I thought the program was great! Now just need to figure out how to implement it all into what i am doing here at my office.
I attended your last Accounting Marketing Program and just wanted to follow up. Thus far it has far exceeded my expectations. I opened my firm doors on Monday immediately after attending your program the prior Friday. I can gladly say that I have acquired approximately $17K in new business since then in less than 2 months. I am a likely candidate for a practice management course in the near future as the actual work flow is hampering my prospecting and sales process. Thanks again for the program.

Great webinar! I highly recommend BYF services to any accountant serious about marketing their firm.
Internet marketing section is informative, but too long. I think it could have been covered in half the time. Would have like more practice management pointers.
I had a wonderful experience working with Build Your Firm Group, esp James Bowen. He is very professional and is very good at what he does. I am very satisfied with my website and look forward to try their other marketing products in future.
Robin and Dawn were very supportive and willing to answer any questions asked. They were very professional and responsive! Great team to work with!
Thank you to Build Your Firm. I now have a dynamic site that highlights my specialties. If I request even a small change, my team is very responsive and willing to serve. After implementing the local search optimization guidelines, my list of prospects increased significantly. Many told me that they were looking for a CPA and "found me on the web". The website really does pay for itself!
It was a pleasure working with James and Build Your Firm to have my website redesigned. He was extremely responsive, timely, and patient. I highly recommend BYF for your website development.
Very professional website and done quickly too. The support and advice given from Build Your Firm has been worthwhile, I would recommend this company very highly.
I enrolled in the three-year Outsourced Marketing Program. I reached $254,000 in revenues over the last 12 months of the program in a down economy. I continued with the website and internet marketing program and grew 23% the first year after the Outsourced Marketing Program and over 40% the second year after.
I always concentrated my marketing efforts on one type of marketing. However, this program uses different types of marketing all working together simultaneously in an integrated environment, which has produced excellent results thus far. The internet marketing, which I was unfamiliar, was key. It brought my dinosaur marketing efforts into the 21st century.
Despite the terrible economy, I have managed to acquire over $150,000 in new business and at least 50 business clients in just 11 months. I am incredibly excited about our growth prospects over the next two years and confident that BYF’s Outsouce Marketing Program will propel my practice to even higher levels in 2009.
Based on my experience with BYF’s Outsourced Marketing Program, I highly recommend this program. By working with BYF, I am pleased to report that I have met my growth goals over the first year and my outlook for 2009 is very positive despite the recession. With their system and guidance, I know what type of clients are right for me, how to run the practice efficiently, and how the leads will be generated for me. In a nutshell, the website is great and our search engine presence is impressive. By having a diversified marketing approach, we have a nice blend of leads coming from various sources each month. And, their practice management system enables us to operate the practice with a lean staff. This program delivers!!
The Outsourced Marketing Program of Build Your Firm has been an incredible experience for me based on my first year participating in the program. The preparatory work by the website development team, the coaching by Allan and Hugh, the direct mail campaigns, and the periodic follow-up recommendations have all been very helpful to me as I have developed my CPA practice. I look forward to the remainder of the 3 years in the program. One area that has been a challenge for me has been the social media program, mostly because I have not had exposure to social media before now.
I have been using BuildYourFirm for their Accountants Marketing, Website Development, and Practice Management. We use them for web marketing and got some quality leads that turned into well paying clients. Recently we implemented their mail campaign and the response was excellent. Just with one mail campaign, I landed couple well paying clients. We also bought their practice management and it helped me structure my firm to realize better profit margins and implement systems that are essential to our success. I highly recommend anyone considering using their services. Whether is marketing, practice management or their outsource marketing, you will be thrilled.
The Accounting Marketing Program, excellent. I thoroughly enjoy having this material in advance of the live course as it gave me plenty of time to study and research specific points in the privacy of my office. In addition, I have the lecture which can be replayed whenever specific items come to my attention. The live course not only provided NASBA CPE, but had updated information and improvements. The DVD provided to me had certain technical limitations in playback, but overall was above average in quality, the notebook is useful. Be certain to evaluate templates independently for your own environment and practice.
I took the study at home program several months ago and was impressed with the presentation. Now after attending the live version, it really reinforced the ideas and methods that were presented to market and grow my practice.
The Accounting Marketing Program was pretty amazing. You get so much more out of the interaction. I definitely learned some great points that I hope to put into practice within the next couple of months. I have to move slowly since cash flow is a bit of an issue but the tools are great and points clear on what to do. I highly recommend Build Your Firm's Accounting Marketing Program to accountants looking to grow their practice.
Excellent material. Recommend following up with live program for full efffect.
One of the best practice management programs I have used in the 16 years that I have been a practicing CPA. I was skeptical at first, as most accountants are, however I became a believer. After my first month of implementing the program, I attained 5 new business clients and only 1/3 of its workload. I now have a new hope and I actually look forward to going into work for the first time in many years.
This was a great help to organize my practice. I loved the chronological system for client communications and managing workflow throughout the entire year. They provided email communications for each week of the year that gathers work, tells the client what is needed, and reminds them of deadlines, wow!
The practice development program has been the best investment I have made since starting my practice.
Very good, very practical approach and information. I agree very much with the objectives and am hopeful about the marketing results.
I recommend the Practice Management program to ALL accountants. Implementing recommendations from this program has enabled me to streamline everything from work flow to billing and collections. Doing this has left me more time to focus on my clients and maintain a balanced lifestyle.
