2021 is just around the corner. And that means that tax season will be here before you know it. While knowing that you’ll have steady work for a few months is great, the way it hits you usually isn’t.
People wait until the last minute to make an appointment… Others show up at your office without the required paperwork… Still, others make an appointment and promptly disappear. But you can cut down on all three of these problems with an effective text reminder strategy.
Appointment reminders allow you to stay better connected with your clients, so business runs more smoothly. Simply take advantage of some of the following text reminder tips for your tax preparation services and you’ll be able to streamline 2021’s busy season so you don’t suffer from no-shows, unprepared clients, and last-minute appointments.
One of the easiest ways to ensure your old clients don’t bombard you with appointment requests in late March is to send out a text reminder early. Most people go to the same person for their taxes, year after year. So, there’s a good chance that many of your 2020 clients will be calling during 2021.
By proactively sending out a text reminder to those clients, you’ll be able to spread your work out over several months. In addition, you’ll ensure that your old clients haven’t forgotten about you.
This is something every CPA & Tax Firm should plan to do in the first month or two of the new year. Simply fill in the text template below and set a date to send it to all of your 2020 clients…
