Niche Marketing for Accountants

Niche Development For Accounting Practices

Niche development is instrumental in differentiating your accounting practice from every other firm in town. Simply said, it is a process designed to create competitive advantage by being better and different.

Niche development is a marketing process designed to accelerate your growth of a certain type of client, understand their needs intrinsically, develop unique solutions to exceed their expectations, command superior pricing, and dramatically increase your referrals. And when done well over many years, measuring your market share to determine where you stack up relative to other firms and becoming known as the best firm around at servicing that niche.

At Build Your Firm, we’ve been advocating niche development since 2003 and support over 30 niches. In some cases, we help accounting firms maximize the opportunity on the internet by customizing a website around their expertise. In other cases, we actually manage the marketing for them in an outsourced marketing capacity. We’ve even gone as far as creating two niche associations to support our clients seeking to become the best firms in town.

Benefits of a Niche Website

Developing a niche in your accounting practice has many benefits including:

  • Differentiate Your Practice: Show how your accounting practice is different from the competition and give potential clients a reason to choose you.
  • Earn Higher Profits: Becoming an expert in niche allows you to sell your specialized accounting services at higher fees and avoid competing on pricing
  • Less Competition: Choosing a niche market means that the sandbox you are playing in is smaller.
  • Attract Better Clients: Gain the clients you want and allow your practice to grow the way you want.

As the late CEO of Coca-Cola, Roberto Goizueta, once said:

“In real estate, it’s location, location, location.
In business, it’s differentiate, differentiate, differentiate.”

Let us know how we can help you gain competitive advantage in your niche pursuits.

Perry Cronin Review

"A guy with big IRS problems called me yesterday because my website hosted by BYF popped up first in his Google search. He signed up to have me get the IRS off his back AND I am now the CPA for his restaurant. That’s $3000 now and about $3000 per year that I did not expect. Thanks BYF!!!"

R. Lee Pennington Review

"Niche marketing gives you a leg up over most local firms because you have a depth of knowledge in certain areas so it's easier to sell to clients in those niches because you have a deeper understanding of their business."
