The Internet has changed the way taxpayers and businesses decide whom to work with. Buyer decisions are no longer made in a vacuum. By the time the consumer has decided whom they want to work with, it is usually too late for most tax professionals. Consumers spend their time searching the web. They use marketplace sites like TripAdvisor to compare multiple alternatives at once. The common cycle goes from research phase to awareness and then the intent to buy. If you do not have a solid online presence, you are not even considered during the buying process. And you may not even know about the business you are missing out on.
It is the CPAs, EAs and tax professionals who know how to establish themselves as trustworthy authorities online who are reaping the new business. Even the traditional referral process has been disrupted, as someone who is referred to you will search your name to see client testimonials and reviews first. This will either cement the referral or stop the potential new client in their tracks. Protecting and fostering your online reputation is paramount to your success.
So what is a busy tax and accounting professional going to do to stay relevant?
It is all about building authority and trust online. How many accountants have you seen dominating a market by becoming an “influencer” when you know they do not know their stuff?
