Marketing & promotional tools, strategies and techniques for small to medium sized CPA firms and accounting practices

Smaller CPA and accounting practices need inexpensive and easy-to-use methods for marketing accounting services.

Yet practical systems of client-acquisition for accounting professionals are few and far between. I'm talking about the "meat" — securing the exact tools and instructions of WHAT TO DO TO OBTAIN RESULTS.

The "accountancy marketing market" seems to be overflowing with great orators, clever theories, ideas for adding value, and motivational seminars lasting several days.

But what about giving the TOOLS for accounting professionals they could use without the need for all this motivating, training, new ideas for adding value and whatnot?

Successful systems for obtaining new year-round clients are rare.

The marketing, advertising and promotional strategies of big CPA & accounting firms are not suited for smaller practices - we don't have the unlimited financial and personnel resources like they do.

On you will find marketing strategies that ARE suited for a low cost, continuous marketing that small to medium sized firms are currently using worldwide.

CPA firms in 45 states and accounting practices in 30 countries use these cost-efficient techniques successfully.

Above all, we have specialized in creating ready-to-use marketing tools that are comfortable to use and suit the unique role of the accounting professional.

On this web site, you will find a wealth of information from the practical viewpoint of a small-to-medium sized firm of accountants or Certified Public Accountants. There are more than 100 letter-sized pages worth of articles here.

It may prove a bit too much to read at one go — and we also add materials constantly — so please bookmark this site to ensure you find back when you want.


"Harry Kafka's marketing guides were instrumental in helping my firm to reach almost full market penetration of our area.

I am often able to gain new clients long after our initial contact because our message was clear and rememberable. This is critical given the small number of prospective clients within our target area.

With the help of these marketing systems, my practice grew from $59K to $280K (2001 Gross Revenue Collected) in one year. This year is on track to reach $400K. My main concern now is getting all the work done!

"Harry Kafka is the most effective ‘how-to’ writer I’ve ever encountered. It is a Godsend that he chooses to write truly useable material for Accountants in public practice around the world.

Whatever Harry Kafka writes about is down-to-earth and practical (and even more importantly, it is well thought out AND on top of that, it works).

Don’t even think about delaying; get Harry’s material, put it to work and watch your profits multiply."
