1stGlobal.com Offers Interactive, Business-Building Opportunities
Posted by accountingweb on 0 354
1st Global, a growth consultant for CPA firms, now offers interactive, in-depth wealth management and business-building opportunities on its new website – 1stGlobal.com. With many CPA firms experiencing flat or little growth over the last five years, the information on the site, as well as the ability to exchange ideas on the site, will be beneficial for CPA firm partners seeking sustainable profits.
1st Global Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer Brian M. Finnigan said, "We launched 1stGlobal.com for two reasons: (1) to better illustrate our core mission of increasing overall CPA firm growth through unique and dynamic consulting engagements, and (2) to express our thought leadership and encourage conversation on this important topic."
"What's exciting is that 1stGlobal.com offers the ability for CPA firm partners and wealth managers to 'weigh in' in real time on these ideas and facts of growth consulting using the DISQUS comments platform that many online publications and blogs use. It will enhance the interaction we have with those in our industry," Finnigan added.
Many of 1st Global's thought leadership articles and white papers have been published on AccountingWEB, but without this social media feature. In addition, 1stGlobal.com offers engaging testimonials from CPA firm partners about their experience with 1st Global's consulting heritage and educational programs, an integrated social media button with LinkedIn, and a careers page highlighting the multitude of career opportunities currently available as 1st Global continues to grow.
What's more, the company plans to provide prospective firm partners an invitation to 1st Global's Wealth Management Feasibility Analysis and Consultation on its website. This consulting engagement is designed to help firms of distinction discover the emotional and financial value of offering wealth management in addition to their traditional accounting services.
"For more than twenty years, 1st Global has been a growth consultant for market-dominating CPA firms striving to be preeminent providers of high-benefit services to their most valued clients," said 1st Global CEO Tony Batman. "1stGlobal.com will be an additional resource of value for top-performing firms."
