"What should I do to get new clients?"

This is the most common question that I get asked when I speak with accounting and tax professionals.

I ask them, “How are you currently getting new clients?" The answer is mostly “word of mouth” or “referrals."

Pay close attention. “Word of mouth” and “referrals” have been and still are two of the topmost sources of new clients.
