This is because that customers or clients pay for goods or services received and this is considered as their income. For an accounting firm, clients are also important since it is their primary source of revenue.

Sadly, client development and marketing is one area where most accountants need some help and assistance.

First of all, if you are just starting your Sacramento accounting firm, you may want to decide which specific accounting related services you will offer. This may include bookkeeping, accounting, preparation and filing of tax returns, and business consultation.

Growing your social circle increases the chance of getting clients since most people know someone that may need an accountant in one point or another. When making new acquaintances, you can also introduce yourself as an accountant, refer them to your firm and give them a business card.

If you also have friends which are other professionals or business owners, refer clients or customers to them. In that way, they might do the same for you if they know someone who is in need of an accountant. Lawyers are the best partners in this kind of networking exchange since more often than not; those who need law services might also need to avail of accounting services.

It is also a good idea to introduce yourself to new and growing businesses because since their new, it is likely that they still don’t have someone taking care of their accounts and might need an accountant and/or other accounting services. Lastly, you can go for paid promotions which are more effective and will reach out to more people and potential clients of your Sacramento accounting firm. The best example is posting an advertisement on your local newspaper.

Other paid promotion methods include telemarketing, getting listed on online directories, posting on local bulletin boards, and handing out flyers or leaflets. In any kind of endeavor, the first part is the hardest. Getting clients for a new Sacramento accounting firm is hard but with these ideas, it will be much easier for you and your business.
