Where to find accountants in order to convert them to customers

The idea that helps Accountants

Accountants want to streamline financial reporting processes. However, they can't get it because they are overwhelmed with manual data entry tasks.

Therefore, they need to use your solution, e.g. Automated Financial Reporting.

FinRep Assist : FinRep Assist is a cloud-based software that automates financial reporting tasks, saving accountants time and reducing errors. Of course it is much better than the stuff from XYZ Accounting Software, or ABC Financial Reporting Tool!

How to find Accountants

You can get insights about the pain points of accountants if you listen to them carefully, either in person or online. Listening online is much easier because you need not ask them for a customer interview but you can observe them talking about their problems, out there in their natural habitat. They won’t even notice that you are there, watching and listening to them.

The process, step by step

One process that we can totally recommend is this:

  • Find out where accountants hang out (Reddit, Mastodon, etc.)
  • Read what problems they talk about, and how urgent they are to them. (Did they try any solutions, yet? Did they spend money on anything, yet? Did they even cobble a homegrown solution together?)
  • Enter the conversation: Help them with tips, ask more about their situation and why they are in pain.
  • If you find recurring questions or pet peeves of accountants, create some helpful content for them (e.g. a blog post, a podcast episode, or a video) and share it with them for free, in the same conversations. They will be delighted.
  • At the end of the blog post, invite them to use your solution: FinRep Assist.

I described the process here in my blog post: Identify a hungry audience.

If you do this manually, it may take you hours each day. Automate it, with a little help from the AI in CustomerPing!
