Marketing campaigns – support with accountants databases

For many clients, a precise list of accountants and accounting companies is all they need to boost their marketing efforts and reach out to new markets.

As data experts, More Than Words can provide you with an accurate, GDPR compliant contact list.

Self-service accountants data lists

When you order a list of accountants from us you’ll receive:

  • Your UK accountants database –we’ll send your database s in an Excel or CSV file.
  • Technical support – if you want help using the data on your marketing list, our team can provide technical support throughout your 12-month license.
  • Marketing support – want help with what messages you send your list of accountants? You benefit from 12 months’ advertising support.
  • A year to find new clients – direct marketing is something you should do every month. Why? Because, by staying in touch with decision makers, they know better the products and services you sell and trust your company more as a legitimate supplier.

If you lack the resources, employees or infrastructure to carry out your own marketing campaigns, we provide an outsourced marketing service to our customers.

When you get in touch with us, ask us about our outsourced email marketing campaign service and our outsourced telemarketing campaigns

Our email marketing campaign service

We’ll be working with you for a year and, during those 12 months, you have access to:

  • email advertisements – our professional designers and copywriters will create original content that is relevant, accurate and helpful to industry professionals,
  • email campaigns – we send your email campaigns to the databases or individual firms you’ve specified,
  • campaign reports – you’ll receive in-depth analysis showing how recipients interacted with each broadcast, and
  • a copy of the data we’re using on your campaign (including contact name, email address, telephone number, lines of business, and so on) enabling you to follow up as appropriate

We create each email campaign to reflect your visual and linguistic branding.

When we receive a direct enquiry from your campaign, we’ll send you the company name and recipient’s contact details.

Three days after the broadcast has been sent, we produce a campaign report showing:

  • who from your prospect list opened your email and how many times they opened it,
  • who clicked through to your website after receiving your email and how many times they clicked through, and
  • anyone who is not interested in your service and wishes to unsubscribe.

You can generate additional leads and set a date for new appointments by following up on the recipients by telephone.

Start calling those who opened and clicked through from your email the most.

Telemarketing to accountants

Our telemarketing service provides an optimal way to generate leads and sales from your accountants database.

Our experienced UK based telemarketers have a strong working knowledge of the market. They are comfortable speaking with companies and individual accountants alike.

This service includes:

  • Conversations with the decision makers who matter – we’ll call the decision makers from your accountants database across 45 hours. This equates to around 800 to 1,000 conversations. To make the most from your campaign, let us know the 800 to 1,000 accountants of greatest importance to you and we’ll get in touch.
  • Achieving the goals you want – agree with your account manager what you want from the campaign.  This could be setting appointments, generation of leads for your sales team to follow-up, market research, or a mixture of some or all of these aims.
  • Telemarketing rep training and introduction – once you’ve signed off your telemarketing brief, your telemarketing rep will be trained on the market you are aiming for and the aims of your campaign by their manager. We strongly encourage you and the rep working on your campaign to speak with each other prior to calling so that you can get to know each other.
  • Campaign underway – you’ll be able to see your rep make live notes when calling via workspace.
  • Live lead alerts – if, following a call, your rep believes that there is a strong advantage in your getting in touch with a decision maker they’ve spoken to straight away, they’ll let you know immediately.

Can’t I get this data for free elsewhere?

We only supply data that is ethically-sourced and GDPR compliant.

You can find online records with the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales.

On that site, you find a full UK industry list of member firms – this is their ICAEW list of accountants.

There is a similar list of UK member companies available at the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants on whose website you can find the full ACCA accountant list.

Although you can’t download the data from the lists, you’re able to use the search service on their websites to find the firms you want.

However, suppliers often find that building a data list from hundreds of different search requests is time-consuming and challenging.

You need to find the right data (including the employees responsible for purchasing) to create a list of accountants that has all the details necessary for appealing, helpful and professional marketing campaigns

In addition, you can only send email marketing campaigns to limited companies in the UK.

At the time of writing, it’s not clear from either the online ICAEW accountants database or the ACCA accountants database whether that distinction is consistently made.

If you email an accountancy practice which is not a limited company, this will be a breach of GDPR data guidelines.
