Significant digital marketing services budgets, high-quality content, great infographics but minimum lead generation and no conversions? What went wrong?


Marketing is far from the one-size-fits-all campaign, with diverse resources, unique needs, and individualistic goals. This article discusses some common problems we have observed marketers at CPA firms struggle with over the years.


#1 The identity miscommunication:


There is often a fundamental miscommunication between CPA firms & their clientele. CPA firms relying on ancient or generic data are grossly unaware of the evolving needs of their target audience, while clients struggling with extensive modern stimuli fail to retain the particular offerings of the firms.


Solution:

To rectify the above, you and your social media marketing agency need to draft offerings in a way that caters to the modern needs of your clientele - marketed consistently, with jargon-free, value-adding content. Moreover, to ensure client satisfaction & retention, regular follow-ups & introductory meetings for changes made in the offerings portfolio of the firm are a bare necessity.


#2 The differential diagnosis


Differentiation & specialization is the primary organic lead generator, converter & revenue generator. In accounting, this translates to expertise in certain problem statements, industrial issues, or proprietary process efficiency. Determining & leveraging your USP in a saturated market that offers indistinguishable services at its core doesn't leave much room for differential marketing.


Solution:

Plan your marketing campaigns in a way that exclusively highlights your specialty in sustainable niches to set yourself apart from the usual clutter & create better retention propensity.


#3 The campaign misprioritization


On average, CPA firms fail to run campaigns that emphasize accumulating the clients they desire but rather pick up every Tom, Dick & Harry that walks in the door irrespective of the ambition and growth futures their businesses may have. This translates to short-term clients & a never-ending blame game with no referrals.


Solution:

In our experience as a social media marketing agency, high-growth tangent firms use niche targeting from the incorporation stage to offer targeted, tailor-made, and behavioral-science-adjusted solutions for niche problem statements that usually aren't ranked first on Google SERPs. This induces better engagement and attention retention, making way for faster goodwill accumulation alongside higher referral levels.


The formerly stated problems aren't meant to intimidate you despite their complexity & intricacy. Start simple by re-learning the current perception, problem statements, and satisfaction rate of the existing client base.


Use the former as a base while undertaking more complex problems, such as restructuring your marketing campaigns, and in case you get stuck, feel free to reach out to our experts for a free review of your digital marketing platforms!
