News Tech: During the 2022 tax season, ActiveCampaign, a market leader in customer experience automation (CXA), assisted several businesses with a focus on taxes in increasing customer engagement. In comparison to tax season 2021, accounting and financial companies used ActiveCampaign CXA to send an average of 45% more emails and boost client email engagement by an average of 53%. Tax professionals broke the pattern of transactional, uninteresting emails in their business this year by deploying ActiveCampaign CXA, positioning themselves for even greater success next season.
In addition to the pandemic, Louisiana experienced four significant hurricanes over the course of the previous two years, leading to a record number of emergency regulatory and tax proclamations that had an immediate effect on the members of the Society of Louisiana CPAs as well as the taxpayers and businesses they support. The amount of information being disseminated, whether it was from the IRS, the Louisiana Department of Revenue, or another organisation, was occasionally overwhelming. The group was able to condense the important information and distribute it to its members in a timely and correct manner thanks to ActiveCampaign. More members express satisfaction with this service than any other service they offer, and these tax notifications have the highest open rate among all the emails they send.
While ActiveCampaign assisted tax professionals in streamlining procedures and improving customer experiences during the most recent tax season, one client utilised CXA to contact CPAs during the pandemic and four other natural disasters, including Hurricane Ida, when they had limited resources. The Society of Louisiana CPAs provides advocacy and professional assistance to more than 5,400 CPAs and 1,500+ aspiring CPAs throughout the state. Distributing breaking news notifications that may affect their position within their companies or organisations is a part of this. The timeliness and quality of such notifications have significantly improved after CXA was implemented.
The Society of Louisiana CPAs has been able to provide personalised experiences and timely information to its members through the usage of ActiveCampaign’s CXA, but they are not alone. According to recent statistics from ActiveCampaign, 96% of companies believe that CXA helps them improve the interactions their consumers have with them, and 95% say that automations enable them to do things that they couldn’t have done on their own. The society’s email campaigns were entirely manually created and distributed because there was no email campaign automation available to them before ActiveCampaign. The technology behind CXA has not only enhanced the members’ interaction with the society’s communications, but it has also saved its employees countless hours of labour. In fact, using ActiveCampaign’s automation technologies allows businesses to save an average of 20 hours per month. More than ten of the 850+ pre-built automation recipes in ActiveCampaign are expressly geared at the accounting sector, including recipes for credit score tagging, virtual meeting reminders, and reminders for paperwork filing.
According to Misean Reed, marketing manager at the Louisiana Society of CPAs, “when we needed to reach our members with limited resources, like electricity, we could use our email lists and segments not only to send out important bulletins, but even more personal outreach efforts to see what resources our displaced members needed.” Then, the emphasis was on securing crucial deadline extensions, declarations, and policy adjustments to assist victims of natural catastrophes on behalf of our members and the customers and companies they represent. ActiveCampaign enables us to accomplish both of our goals of getting the message over to the audience quickly and accurately.
