BUILD YOUR BUSINESS THIS TAX SEASON.
Now that the New Year is behind us, tax professionals are feeling the pressure of an April 15th filing deadline. If you’re trying to grow your tax business in Lancaster County, you still have time to attract new clients in the 2016 tax season. Here are four quick ways to make 2016 your best year ever:
1. SEND OUT REMINDERS TO PAST TAX CLIENTS
Don’t assume last year’s tax clients will reach out to you again. It’s your job to contact each customer and remind them about upcoming deadlines, or ask them to set up an appointment. LNP Media Group makes reaching out to past tax client easier by offering customized email options that allow you to send personalized emails to your list, along with an opt-in form that allows tax clients to request an appointment. We can also set up a series of reminder messages for clients who don’t contact you after receiving the first email. We can even connect the email to your own scheduling software so tax clients can make their appointment online.
Social Media Reminders
Another way Lancaster County tax pros can reach past tax clients is with social media ads. Social media ads offer tools that allow you to limit your ad exposure to your current client list. While not as personal as an email, social media ads increase awareness and often offer high conversion rates. LNP Media Group can help you sync your email list with Google, Facebook, LinkedIn or other platforms. These platforms then limit ad distribution to your client list*.
2. GET REFERRALS FROM YOUR CURRENT CLIENTS
Email Requests for Referrals
You’ve heard it before. The best way to get new clients is through referrals. Have you asked your satisfied tax clients for referrals? Again, a customized email campaign can be a fast way for you to reach a lot of tax clients while still personalizing each and every email.
3. BE EASY TO FIND
While you may be getting busy, this is not the time to hide from your existing and potential clients. Search engines are the first place all types of consumers and clients look for information on products and services, even professional services that they’ve used before. Make sure you’re your firm is ranking high in searches, or your customers may contact your competitors instead.
4. SPREAD THE WORD
