Having tried other client acquisition programs, I was skeptical of the claims the BYF makes regarding how quickly you can grow your practice. After working with Hugh and Alan for a year, my only regret is that I didn't start working with them sooner. We easily doubled our billings in the first twelve months of working with BYF.
This was a great program to get me back on track with my marketing and looking at my practice as a business and not as a job. I am very excited about getting my marketing program running and I know the tools gathered from the BYF system will help me achieve my new busienss goals. I am looking forward to starting this right away.
I am intrigued by all that was said and how to market myself to our target clients. I definitely learned a lot and as I am starting my business, it will be beneficial and helpful in getting clients.

Great job. I really like the format. Good refresher/energizer for me. Thanks a million.
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.
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!
Build Your Firm recently built a niche site for us and it has been working wonders. BYF did our primary site about 3 years ago and working with Robin and her counterparts was a great experience. The guidance given and patience shown as we went through the building of the site was terriffic. When we decided to build another site there was never any doubt that we would ask BYF to provide the site. I think BYF continues to grow as a company when it comes to client services and I appreciate the support behind the contract.
We have had great success with the website. Potential clients are calling. We have closed 80% of them.
Build Your Firm did a great job creating my Pet Accounting niche website. (www.petaccounting.com) They created a website better than I could have come up with myself. The best part was that our firm was able to bring in a new client from the website within 2 weeks of it going live, and we hadn't even started advertising yet. The client found us organically on Google, because of the SEO optimization that Build Your Firm had built in to the website. I couldn't be more pleased with the quality of the website, and the great customer service I received from all of the BYF staff. Thanks for doing such a great job!
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.
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.
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
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.
Excellent material. Recommend following up with live program for full efffect.
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.
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 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, 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 tools presented have dramatically helped streamline our workflow management. We doubled our practice over a 12 month period since we began working with BYF. Using the concepts and tools presented in the practice management seminar, I've been able to handle the increased client load without needing to increase staff size. My staff is more productive, and my form is more profitable as a result.
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.
Build Your Firm has provided our firm with the marketing help we needed to sustain our desired growth rate. Our dealings with them have been nothing short of outstanding.
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!
