I enjoyed the Webinar. It gave me a lot of good ideas. I have been practicing for a long time. My structure is different. Billing quarterly would be a time saver. We do a lot of writeup, payroll, and small business consulting. I want to get more knowedgeable about internet marketing so that I can have a constant flow of new business. It makes sense to work on your business and let your staff be the technicians. Thank you!
The program seems to be good and time will tell if it works. The problem I see is that most people procrastinate and don't have the time to implement as they are trying to run a practice by themselves and another 15 hours a week is hard to find. My initial reaction was this is great and as you know it is a numbers game and it is time consuming. Also the biggest barier is the typical accountant thinking that we are not supposed to market and solicit for business.
Very well done.
I attended the accounting marketing program in 2007 and it put $100,000 net (per year) into my pocket. After attending the program a second time, I will now realize an extra $500,000 in my pocket (per year). Guess I should have listened closer the first time around. I highly recommend this program.
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.
Had been having troubles for months sending emails. Robin of BYF was able to analyze the situation & come up with a solution that solved the matter. (Not even ATT-my internet provider-was able to figure out what was wrong. Way to go, Robin!
Build Your Firm developed my website nearly three years ago. From the start, I have been incredibly happy with the results. The site constantly delivers consistent quality leads to my practice, and based on the results, I have recently added a second niche website . Now when someone calls me about how they can build a better website or boost my rankings, I can confidently say thanks but no thanks! I will be a loyal Build Your Firm client for as long as I am blessed to be in practice!
We have had great success with the website. Potential clients are calling. We have closed 80% of them.
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.
Using BYF for our website development was one of the best marketing decisions we ever made. BYF has vastly improved our SEO. More importantly, BYF is always there when we need them, whether it be for a website technical issue, a marketing question, or a general marketing question. When we ask a prospect how they found us, it usually is because of an Internet search where we were listed at t he top of the page.
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.
Build Your Firm has an Outsourced Marketing Program which is outstanding. The team is very progessional and develops a comprehensive marketing program which identifies all aspects of where/how to find new clients. Recommend highly
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.
I just finished the Outsourced Marketing program for a year, it generated 170k. I immediately signed up for an extended term because I was extremely satisfied with the results and I loved working with Alan and Hugh.
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 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.
Excellent material. Recommend following up with live program for full efffect.
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.
The accounting marketing program was great. It was one of, if not the best, accounting education programs I have been too. The live discussion helped clarify and emphasize points out of the home study program.
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.
The practice development program has been the best investment I have made since starting my practice.
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!
This practice development program is a must, to go along with the accounting marketing program. It has an easy to implement, systematic approach to managing your practice. It gives you the tools to have your staff assist your clients in a consistent, professional, and efficient manner.
Very good, very practical approach and information. I agree very much with the objectives and am hopeful about the marketing results.
