We understand that many people who join the TaxAssist Accountants network, may have limited experience of marketing themselves or a business. That is why we have a large and highly experienced team of marketing and communications professionals on hand to provide extensive training, support and advice. 
The Business Development Team focuses on generating client leads on behalf of the network and driving marketing initiatives to ensure TaxAssist Accountants maintains its market leading brand position. 
Each team member also has an important role to play in supporting the network to develop and grow their own business. The team provides initial and ongoing marketing training, assists in managing online and social media presence, delivers centralised email campaigns to clients, provides guidance with setting up the right shop location and supports with local marketing activities. 
Below are just some of the marketing initiatives and techniques we use on a local and national level to generate leads (business opportunities) for our network. Further discussion and information is provided on our Discovery Days.

Generating your leads

Our proven client lead generation service delivers the right prospects to grow TaxAssist practices, with each lead qualified before being transferred to the office in the relevant territory. 
We have an experienced in-house, Inbound Sales team, who respond to a high number of lead enquiries generated by the targeted marketing campaigns run on behalf of the network. They are the first friendly voice that a new customer hears, welcoming them into each accounting practice, which supports the chances of winning new business. The combination of targeted marketing activity and qualification of leads, ensures that high quality leads are delivered which helps with converting to client signings. This service is hugely valued by the network and is consistently one of the key sources for practice growth.  

Our national marketing

We regularly run national marketing campaigns and we are constantly evolving our marketing strategies. Our network of branded TaxAssist Accountants shops and cars ensures that clients and potential clients will see the brand and recognise our name in the marketplace. All enquiries we receive are qualified at the Support Centre and then sent on to the relevant TaxAssist Accountant.
