What Types of Videos To Use

While individuals and corporations are likely to have different questions about filing returns, there are ways to combine information so that marketing videos can be beneficial for everyone. Find overlapping topics that you can speak to in general terms or answer common questions that most clients may have.

For tax and accounting firms, we suggest branded videos on topics like:

  • Do’s and don’ts before filing taxes
  • How an accountant can save you money on your tax returns
  • Learn how to maximize your refund
  • Common misconceptions about tax returns that can be avoided with help from an accountant

Branded tax videos are a great way to look approachable and confident in your practice. You can set yourself up as a subject matter expert and entice people to schedule an in-person meeting to get more information.
