Accounting in the Web 2.0 World
We began this process the same way we begin any new engagement - by educating ourselves. This began when we invited the Maryland Association of Certified Public Accountants’ Executive Director Tom Hood to speak to us about his experience with Web 2.0 technologies. After hearing Tom speak, we did additional research, which helped us develop our objectives and establish a plan for maximizing the firm’s use of these technologies.
Our goals were to enhance our name recognition, bring our experience and knowledge to the web and improve our communications, both internally and externally. We have worked very hard over the past 10 months on these efforts and like most large projects there were a lot of talented people participating in the process. It is with a degree of pride that we can say we have successfully changed our name, our logo, our website and our collateral materials. We have also instituted our blog, Watkins Wire, and we have developed and begun to deploy our CRM system, allowing us to better manage and keep in contact with our clients and prospects. Additionally we’re in the process of launching an e-mail newsletter, which will provide valuable and timely news and information about the accounting industry.
We have also established a presence on LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter. We hope these platforms will help strengthen our brand and showcase the knowledge of our staff. The enhanced communication will also provide value to our clients, employees, and the communities in which we live and work. We encourage you to follow us on these sites and provide us with your feedback on Watkins Meegan’s presence in the Web 2.0 world.
