MARKETING SOLUTIONS FOR BETTER RESULTS

Dear {{first_name}},

Thank you for contacting Your company name  and discussing your marketing vision with us.
We understand the challenges accounting and finances companies face when trying to build their brand image.
It is not easy running the practice and handling client issues, then having the time and expertise to write a formal marketing plan.

The good news is, we can do it for you.

Overview 

As we discussed during our conversation, you would like us to develop a practical plan that will drive your firm’s efforts, maintain focus, and ensure resources are properly directed into effective marketing programs.

The strategy we had in mind would consist of the following: 

  • Establishing goals
  • Identifying targets
  • Creating a SWOT analysis
  • Creating a marketing plan and strategy
  • Setting the specific actions
  • Creating a budget
  • Progress measurement and monitoring

We understand the {{company_name}} offers expertise in all areas of accounting, bookkeeping, and financial planning. Even though your firm has a solid and loyal customer base, there has been slowing growth in recent years.  Since the firm is highly dependant on revenues from tax planning and preparation for businesses and individuals, these areas account for more than 75% of total revenues.

This presents a long-term threat to the firm due to competition and changes in the market. Your company name can help you to diversify your revenue base that will result in ongoing growth and stability in this changing industry.

IDEAS THAT WILL GROW YOUR BRAND

In order to create the best marketing plan possible, we need to focus on the targeted audience. Your best clients value their time and resources and seek to minimize their tax obligations.

Your objective is to minimize the tax exposure of your clients while complying with all the tax laws. In the bigger picture, it means that you are providing peace of mind for your clients - making them more money and giving them a better night's sleep.

To market what you do in the best way,  gain more targeted customers, and get the best ROI on your marketing plan, we have come up with the following: 

Analyzing the market and demographics  

As we discussed, your most profitable business clients fall into the "over 50 employees" category. Many of these accounts are in the medical, dental, and lodging industries and are most likely to use the widest range of services your company offers. We will analyze the market in-depth and provide you with the best plan to influence the targeted demographics. 

Market trends

A very important thing many companies oversee when building a marketing plan is to keep an eye on market trends. In your case, the use of tax software has increased over the past few years and it continues to erode revenue from individual clients with simple returns.  Our marketing strategy will create the best ways to impact the market and focus on key clients in this everchanging environment. 

SWOT summary

The marketing plan will also include a SWOT analysis. It will help us address the strengths and weaknesses of your company and the opportunities and threats that exist in your environment. This analysis highlights areas that must improve within both, your company, the industry, and the market.

Previous strategy evaluation   

You have mentioned some of the marketing strategies your company used before, such as professional referrals and selective sponsorships, have been successful. We will evaluate those strategies and find the best way to implement them in your new marketing plan.

Analyzing competition   

Your competitors fall into three primary categories; other firms, sole practitioners, and software. We will help you identify exactly who your competitors are, what they’re doing, and how you could find yourself a place alongside them in your niche – and ideally, surpass them.

Creating a new strategy   

Finally, based on the research done above, we will create a strategy that will cover all of your critical issues, financial and marketing objectives, branding, promotion, advertising, and public relations. 

Result tracking  

To save you from any kind of frustration or questions along the way, we will introduce you to the best ways to measure and monitor the progress of your marketing plan. It will include the answers to all the questions such as: 

  • What will you track
  • How do we plan to track the results
  • How often will they be measured, etc.

RESULTS THAT MATTER

After you sign this proposal, our team will schedule a follow-up call and agree on the best meeting time so we can start working on your marketing plans.

FROM OUR PORTFOLIO

When Adam, a Senior Marketing Advisor reached out to us and asked for our help in better utilizing social media, LinkedIn in particular, to increase brand visibility, we were delighted for the opportunity. 

The solution and the outcome

Social media was relatively new for Adam's company and they were looking for ways to improve their recruitment and marketing strategies. Your company name formed tactics and offered guidance in achieving business objectives across sales, marketing, and recruitment. The goal was to create a strategy that will start showing results in a very early stage, followed by a long term action plan. 

Both, Your company name and {{company_name}} had a very clear vision of the setup and marketing process and the result was a future-focused strategy that will keep growing and strengthening with their business.

A few words from Adam

“Working with Your company name was absolutely amazing. The work that they delivered helped us by giving us not only the tools but also the support that we needed to get the outcomes we wanted.
