Accounting Marketing Program


Victor Delerme
I have a new accounting practice and used this program to quickly grow my practice. Both instructors were knowledgeable and informative. I would not change any part of the Program, it was excellent and delivered what was promised. After, BYF has encouraged me to implement the marketing program. I am shocked at the response I am receiving immediately after implementing what BYF recommended and now realize that I should have done this program earlier. BYF really delivers.

I enjoyed the program. It gave me a lot of good ideas. I have been practicing for a long time. My structure is different. Billing quarterly would be a time saver. We do a lot of writeup, payroll, and small business consulting. I want to get more knowledgeable about internet marketing so that I can have a constant flow of new business. It makes sense to work on your business and let your staff be the technicians. Thank you!

What I loved about this program was it is a sales and marketing program. The marketing does a great job of landing good quality leads and the sales presentation shows you how to close the prospects. And you do not have to be a great salesperson to follow the system.

Well done on every level! As a CPA for the last 30 years, both in public and private practice, this is one of the top courses I've taken in terms of getting substance from start to finish. Give me an ounce of concrete solutions over a pound of fluff any day!

Practice Management Program


Katie Ihndris
I recommend the Practice Management program to ALL accountants. Implementing recommendations from this program has enabled me to streamline everything from work flow to billing and collections. Doing this has left me more time to focus on my clients and maintain a balanced lifestyle.
John Siebert
The tools presented have dramatically helped streamline our workflow management. We doubled our practice over a 12 month period since we began working with BYF. Using the concepts and tools presented in the practice management program, I've been able to handle the increased client load without needing to increase staff size. My staff is more productive, and my form is more profitable as a result.
Jennie Bordeaux
This practice development program is a must, to go along with the accounting marketing program. It has an easy to implement, systematic approach to managing your practice. It gives you the tools to have your staff assist your clients in a consistent, professional, and efficient manner.

Art of Closing and Keeping Clients + Coaching


Pedro Torres
An excellent business growth tool, I am still able to use the lessons learned as part of my daily contact with my current customers and the ones who are evaluating our services. The Program is an excellent way to prepare to get more business.
Mark Sizemore
The 1-on- 1 Coaching System takes the Build Your Firm program to another level. It makes them live and relatable. I have used the BYF system for several years and had reasonable success but never really understood how to pull together the most salient points in consultations with small business owners. The roleplaying was the most effective part because it forces you to implement the concepts and you struggle in a non-threatening situation. I highly recommend this coaching system.
Chris Brown
Allan has a great deal of knowledge based on years of experience. Just to “hear” how he would handle things is the highlight. It is great to see another’s perspective on how to go about obtaining clients, and what to emphasize.
Don Musselman
The role playing and the Appointment Profile template reinforcement are very helpful as you are able to easily teach the worth of the simple approach to selling the value of our expertise to potential clients. As the training sessions progressed by using different client scenarios my confidence increased, as I was able to deliver what the client wants to hear. Personally, your enthusiasm, confidence and desire to provide a path to success for your clients are traits that ensure your program will continue to be a valuable tool to anyone seeking to grow the size and value of their business.
Bob Gomez
Other accountants can significantly benefit from this program. If an accountant is able to digest the personal coaching and therefore focus on communicating their underlying value to the client and prospect, they will be more successful than if they continue to focus on their technical skills. The personalized role playing is the most important part of the 1x1 coaching.

Outsourced Marketing Program


Katie Ihndris
Despite the economy, I have managed to acquire over $150,000 in new business and at least 50 business clients in just 11 months. I am incredibly excited about our growth prospects over the next two years and confident that BYF’s Outsouce Marketing Program will propel my practice to even higher levels.

Despite the terrible economy, I have managed to acquire over $150,000 in new business and at least 50 business clients in just 11 months. I am incredibly excited about our growth prospects over the next two years and confident that BYF’s Outsouce Marketing Program will propel my practice to even higher levels in 2009.
Richard Reid
The Outsourced Marketing Program of Build Your Firm has been an incredible experience for me based on my first year participating in the program. The preparatory work by the website development team, the coaching by Allan and Hugh, the direct mail campaigns, and the periodic follow-up recommendations have all been very helpful to me as I have developed my CPA practice. I look forward to the remainder of the 3 years in the program. One area that has been a challenge for me has been the social media program, mostly because I have not had exposure to social media before now.
John Charles Roe

I have been a BYF client for 8 years. I think it is a Great program. My only regret is that I didn't find them when I first opened my business in 2002.

Brad Filmanowicz
I just finished the Outsourced Marketing programs first year, it generated 170k. I immediately signed up for an extended term because I was extremely satisfied with the results and I loved working with Alan and Hugh.

I consider the folks at BYF a valued partner contributing to the success of my small firm. They played a huge role in helping me get my small, one person firm off the ground. Their web sites are awesome. When I got busy this past tax season I was unable to keep up with some of the BYF marketing suggestions. I basically had my web site and did a few chamber events. My business was still up over 50% from the past year due to the traffic being generated by my BYF site.
Edward Cooper
Robin did a most excellent job. I wanted to make some changes to an existing website and she did not only that but made smart suggestions keeping SEO in mind. I appreciated it when I suggested doing something that was not really a smart idea, and Robin gave me a better idea - in a superbly tactful way. Thank you Robin and BYF.
Lorie Tola
Kallie exemplified timely after hours tech support that helped me begin to navigate the new dashboard.
Michael Dipede
Something I was originally skeptical about proved to be a smart move. BYF did a wonderful job on my website. They were very helpful and it was very easy. In the first month the site already covered the fees.
Mark Orlando, San Diego, Ca
I recently upgraded to Platinum and really like the ePay payment processing.  I like the way it works.  It’s simple to track payments and reconcile them to the deposits in our bank account.  I have been using the convenient link creation tool within ePay and added the live link to emailed invoices.  This speeds up payment and helps a lot.  I really like the recurring billing feature in ePay for eCheck and credit cards.  This provides us with more control over when we get paid and eliminates the discussion about fees and when the check will get mailed to us.  Our goal is to get 90% of our clients onto ePay so our cash flow improves even further.  The days of waiting for checks to arrive in the mail are thankfully over.

Niche Website


Lee Pennington
Love the website design. Looks fantastic. Thanks for all your help. You really made the process very easy.
Ralf Heyer
BYF developed a niche website for our firm a little over a year ago. I am proud to say that this year we have received various referrals directly from the site. We are very pleased with all their professionals and work. Thank you!
Bob Kilkenny
A guy with big IRS problems called me yesterday because my web site hosted by BYF popped up first in his Google search. He signed up to have me get the IRS off his back AND I am now the CPA for his restaurant. That’s $3000 now and about $3000 per year that I did not expect. Thanks BYF!!!
Jon Bell
Build Your Firm developed my website nearly three years ago. From the start, I have been incredibly happy with the results. The site constantly delivers consistent quality leads to my practice, and based on the results, I have recently added a second niche website . Now when someone calls me about how they can build a better website or boost my rankings, I can confidently say thanks but no thanks! I will be a loyal Build Your Firm client for as long as I am blessed to be in practice!
Josh Dixon
Build Your Firm did a great job creating my Pet Accounting niche website. (www.petaccounting.com) They created a website better than I could have come up with myself. The best part was that our firm was able to bring in a new client from the website within 2 weeks of it going live, and we hadn't even started advertising yet. The client found us organically on Google, because of the SEO optimization that Build Your Firm had built in to the website. I couldn't be more pleased with the quality of the website, and the great customer service I received from all of the BYF staff. Thanks for doing such a great job!

Mark Bailey
From the initial design process through implementation and maintenance, BYF has exceeded my expectations. The professional guidance we have received from everyone has been exemplary. Ture professionals with a great sense of service. I would recommend and endorse BYF unconditionally.
Gianna Nguyen
The team and I wanted to send you and BYF a huge thank you for all the hard work and patience through this whole process. We are really happy with the website and hope that you share in our excitement. You have been especially wonderful and open with us, and we really do appreciate all of that on your end.

Webinar


Robert Quaye
It was practical and informative, which clearly provided some direction. It is obvious that Niche building is the way forward, for which the webinar helped to sharpen the focus
Kelley Nanna
I appreciate the thoughtful tips, ideas, sharing what works and what doesn't. Suggested pricing and time involved, potential questions to ask, are all things that many training sessions will not even approach!
Gerald Hoffman
I took many notes during the webinar. I thought you talked about a niche that every accountant needs to find. Excellent. Also, the examples were easy to understand, and were true examples. Keep up the practical seminars that apply to most accountants.
William Hellmann
thank you an excellent program! i learned much
Martin Budinick
I thought all info presented in a logical and decisive manner...very well organized and directed. I would rate it 5 stars except that for me it was pretty basic...I have been following the "plan" for a number of years. What I did take away from the presentation is that I am not charging enough for my services and the rationale for my decision as to whether I accept a new client or not. These two items made my day...thank you! On second thought...I have changed my rating to 5 stars!

BizPayO


Larry O'dell
No complaints, in fact I have integrated my billing into BizPayo and dropped my Intuit merchant account as well as ACH provider. I have had a few clients who have fallen behind and this tool helped us get them back to current and empowers the client to make payments directly without me taking a phone call.
Peter Frueler
I’m actually surprised how many will pay 3% more to pay by charge cards.  Makes it a no brainer.  I’m happy that transactions are batched gross and fees subtracted at the end of the month.  This makes it easy to reconcile. I’m happy that the system is intuitive and easy to use - we’ve had no client questions on how to pay us online. 
Vito Curcuru
The application process was simple and very straightforward.  Build Your Firm was very responsive for every question I had along the way.
Steve Mueller
The establishment of my account with BizPayo was made simple by first viewing their carefully crafted videos which showed what needed to be done in a step-by-step manner.  The videos even provided helpful hints on how to save me unnecessary fees.  I also received personalize help - this was a much better experience than I had before with setting up a merchant account and the resulting confusion and costs. 
Riggins & Co.
Love the charge back feature, that was essential for us.
