Find new clients with our response-driven, fully GDPR compliant email marketing service for accountants
Email marketing for accountants works.
Across all business sectors, businesses enjoy a £43 average return for every £1 spent on email marketing.
And the average return on investment in email marketing actually went up following the implementation of the new GDPR regulations in mid-2018.
That’s because the number of emails sent to businesses decreased following its introduction and volumes have not recovered since.
This has made email marketing one of More Than Words’ most popular marketing services for accountants.
The team leader of the email marketing department at More Than Words has been involved in the industry since 2002.
Over the course of 2014 and 2015, he provided email marketing services to over 100 different accountants to prize out the opportunities delivered by the introduction of both workplace pensions and RTI.
To this day, we still work with dozens of accounting firms each month helping them succeed with email marketing.
Our email marketing for accountants service
Choose your target markets
We have a database of over 350,000 GDPR-compliant business decision makers segmented by:
- line of business (business activity),
- geographical location,
- company size (expressed by turnover or number of employees)
Consult with your account manager to choose from our database only the companies of most interest to you whether it’s for your general accounting services or more specialist services like R&D Tax Credit consulting.
Being as precise as possible about the companies and decision makers you’re interested in targeting means that the cost of your campaign will be lower.
And the lower your campaign cost, the higher the potential return on your investment.
Included with our email marketing campaign service for accountants
We’ll be working with you for a year and, during those 12 months, you receive:
- 12 email advertisements – produced by a professional designer and specialist copywriter with experience in creating original content for accounting websites and emails,
- 12 email campaigns when we send your email advertisements to the targets you’ve specified,
- 12 campaign reports showing how recipients interacted with each broadcast, and
- a copy of the database we’re using on your campaign (including contact names, email addresses, telephone numbers, lines of business, and so on)
We don’t use any email marketing templates for accounting firms we work with.
Each email campaign design is created from scratch to reflect your visual and linguistic branding.
When we receive a direct enquiry from your campaign, we’ll be in touch within 30 minutes with the recipient’s contact details.
Three days after the broadcast has been sent, we produce a campaign report showing:
- who opened your email and how many times they opened it
- who clicked through to your website after recieving your email and how many times they clicked through, and
- who no longer wants to receive emails (the unsubscribers).
You can generate additional leads and book new appointments by following up on the recipients who opened and clicked through from your email the most – ask your account manager how to achieve these results for your practice.

Why email marketing for accountants produces a high return on investment
The most successful email marketing campaigns for accountants are carried out over the course of a year.
By being seen twelve times over the course of a year, you overcome:
- buyer inertia (some companies are reluctant to switch accountants even if the owners are not impressed with their current accountant), and
- potential buyer remorse (a business owner’s worry that they’ll choose a new accountant and later regret it).
To achieve the best results, the emails you send to your target audience over the course of a 12 month period must be a mixture of informative and promotional.
That’s because an accountant is a particularly important partner for any business.
You need to use every contact as an opportunity to establish your credibility and highlight your experience with the audiences you’re targeting.
Your emails must show that:
- you understand the needs of your clients, and
- you’re a savvy businessperson yourself who might know a few things that the receipients of your emails don’t.
From the third month onwards, you’ll start to see a lot more engagement from the company owners you send your emails to.
Traffic to your website will increase and we’ll be also able to tell you exactly who has clicked through to your site.
Inbound enquiries will increase in number both by email and by phone.
Work with our experienced creative team to plan a 12-month email marketing strategy to produce the results you want.
