What was the challenge?
Steven found that because there were so many “do-it-yourself” tax options, fewer people felt the need to hire a tax professional. “Our business growth had plateaued and it was obvious that a more effective platform for advertising was the internet and social media.” But that wasn’t the only obstacle he faced. Steven was also concerned with Congress and their idea of a simplified tax code. “We had to change the way we did business and the way we communicated our business to potential clients.”

CountingWorks PRO was able to deliver these results for him. “CountingWorks PRO had a great impact on our company by providing support with any marketing. They write and distribute monthly newsletters with up-to-date tax information. They post to our social media often with not only tax knowledge but also Friday Funny’s to our Facebook page.
