Wondering how to get clients for your tax preparation business? Our marketing ideas for accountants will help during tax season and all year round! The key to getting more tax clients is to implement these tax marketing ideas off-season as well as on.
Point of Sale: The tax-themed promotional mug you hand your clients with their tax return will remind them with every sip of coffee that’s it’s you they’ll be speaking to when tax season comes around again. (Check out a few of the templates you can choose for your mug, below!)
All Year Long: Implement off-season marketing ideas for tax preparers that help your clients to stay organized, prepared, and ready to file with a smile (and with YOU!) when the time comes. Like death and taxes, increasing traffic to your small business is a sure thing with these marketing ideas for accountants:
Keep your name top of mind as “call accountant” creeps to the top of every client’s to-do list, with newsletters, tax preparation flyers, direct mail, and local ads. Focus on filling up your calendar early with tax preparation marketing at the beginning of the year. Mail a tax newsletter with a promotional pen that your prospects can pocket to remind them to get on your calendar.
If your tax prep services focus on a specific industry, sponsor or attend an industry event. Hand out a customized pen or sticky notebook that includes your logo and a reference to their industry, e.g., XYZ Accounting & Tax Services: If you serve food, we serve YOU.
Watch heavy sighs and nervous knee tapping give way to a collaborative “we got this” attitude when you kick off a tax prep meeting with a stress ball, chocolate, or other lighthearted little something. And whether they end up owing money or expecting a refund, make sure they leave your office or your Zoom call with a tax prep giveaway like a document holder, notebook, or calculator.
Taxes are personal and connecting your tax services to the local community helps build trust and familiarity between you and your customers. Plan your tax preparation marketing to include sponsoring a local youth sports team or donating to a homeless shelter, and let your clients know your favorite local (tax deductible!) charities.
No one likes taxes and everyone likes freebies. Keep your customers feeling good about the inevitable notetaking, form-filling, and paper-filing of tax season with promotional gifts that lift their spirits and promote your brand. Following are our favorite mugs, stress balls, pens, chocolate, and more:
