Proactive communication opportunities

Social media platforms such as LinkedIn and Facebook offer excellent opportunities to connect with clients and prospects:

  • Help your firm stay in your audience’s minds with tax tips, best practices and reminders.
  • Post relevant industry news and insights to position your firm as a thought leader.
  • Humanize your firm by posting photos of your hardworking team.
  • Share staff events and conferences, and highlight employees who will be working with clients during tax season.

Speaking of tax season, this time of year presents a great opportunity to leverage your collection of online reviews. It’s also a perfect time to prompt your clients to leave a review on your Google Business Profile or Facebook. And be sure to seize the chance to ask satisfied clients for feedback, which can strengthen your online presence and increase the likelihood of potential clients finding and trusting your services.

By taking a proactive approach to client communication, your firm can navigate the demands of tax season and identify new opportunities to provide value and deepen your relationships with clients. Engaging with your clients on social media, sharing relevant content and leveraging the collection of online reviews can position your firm as your clients’ trusted advisor and valued partner.
