Firm Operations Series: Embracing Business Development in Accounting Firms

Despite predictions that they will become obsolete, many accounting firms still expect to see strong organic growth. The role of business development in accounting firms has been hotly debated in recent years, but it’s clear that achieving high growth targets will require new and better ways to differentiate. In Part Two of our Firm Operations Series, we’ll talk about the role business development plays in accounting firms, including:

  • Growth strategies – Real-world tactics for growing revenue
  • Marketing outreach – Tips for identifying new prospects and building your brand
  • Data analytics – Tools for finding opportunities within your existing client base

Improving firm operations can help firms grow profits and add value to client relationships. Don’t overlook this critical component of your firm’s well-being.
