How mobile is affecting the accountancy profession - getting an iOS and Android App for your accounting firm_MyFirmsApp

1,331 views

Published on

A free 1:1 Demo available by calling +44 (0) 7879 654191 or emailing danielr@myfirmsapp.co.uk. 2013 is the year of the App for Accountants. More than a half of your clients and prospects are already 'living their lives' on a smartphone and using Apps as part of their daily lives...

Yet, less than 0.2% of the UK Accountancy market space are currently doing anything positive regards Apps.

Taking action now gives you, like those who already have, a tangible first mover advantage. It has been many years since there has been something that can so easily and genuinely differentiate your firm. Presenting you as forward thinking, proactive and technologically advanced.

www.myfirmsapp.co.uk is helping firms gain their own iPhone and Android App; one that is endorsed and promoted by many of the professional bodies and institutions and is as close to a bespoke App as possible - without you needing to pay the £30-40k+ prices to build your own!

Instead for between £649+£1995 you can gain your own iPhone and Android App and engage your clients and prospects far better than your competitors.

What's more, with over 50% of local searches now being delivered by mobile devices, and Google saying it will surpass desktop browsing altogether by 2014 - It also presents options through www.myfirmsapp.co.uk to help you make your current website mobile enabled, through the use of 'adaptive technology'.

In short, that means for most firms you don't need a brand new website but instead can have a solution that recognises the device viewing it; presents your website in the perfect way for that user; and avoids you being one of the sites that 61% of people say they would quickly leave if it is not mobile friendly.

This presentation, gives you and your firm the key stats and market factors to allow you to make the right decision for your firm - plus shares examples of how other firms are already benefiting by taking action.

If you would like a free demo and 1:1 chat by phone about your firm and your goals then please email danielr@insight-marketing.com, call me direct on +44 (0) 7879 654191 or our office on 0800 8030826 and we'd be glad to schedule a time.

Best wishes!
Dan Richards

  23. 23. 23 Learn from the innovators That’s not to say I was disappointed; after all there’s a limit to how sexy a calculator or a fact sheet can be. Personally, I didn’t actually think or believe clients would download it, let alone use it. Like I say that was not my goal for the App, as it was specifically to help differentiate us. It worked I was right, it did differentiate us What I underestimated was by how much and in how many different ways. We have had PR articles in important local publications like Cotswold Life and Business & Professional life, and we have had people sharing feedback with us on the App stores. It’s strengthened our message of being proactive, forward thinking innovators - focused on entrepreneurs and helped us become even more visibly different than our competitors and all for such a small investment of money. But I was still wrong It didn’t stop there though. Before this project I didn’t expect our clients to really engage with our App; that was until we started getting feedback from clients. They were loving it; I mean not just downloading it or using it once or twice. They were engaging with it, some of them multiple times each day. Each time they did, our branding and name was in front of them. And, well, am I glad it’s not a competitors! I underestimated the desire for our clients to interact, communicate and get content via their smartphones. Best of all it doesn’t require any of my time to manage it..........
  24. 24. 24 Biggest hurdle is was price... The most powerful App available at the very best price! X  From just £649+VAT or,  Your own Gold App at £949+VAT  Unique Platinum at £1995+vat How many clients would you need to win or retain to get a return on this small investment? X

  40. 40. 40 What just two of your colleagues thought... We are delighted with our App, which was designed by the team at MyFirmsApp. The process was simple and the cost extremely competitive. It gives us great content in two sections - first the tax tables and really helpful calculators, and second the content we can update ourselves, which helps us keep clients and potential clients updated with news and events at Alexander & Co and the different ways we have helped clients. It’s a fantastic marketing tool with links to our blog, website and social media. Richard Alexander | Alexander and Co We have had a successful website for years, but working with Insight has significantly improved our enquiry rate - and we thought that it was good before!
