The directory comes with features and processes designed to help you attract more ecommerce clients.
You'll notice the ‘match me request’ feature on the directory. This is when ecommerce businesses ask A2X to match them with the right accountant or bookkeeper based on their needs. If the information we have about your practice matches a request, we'll assign the lead to you. You'll receive an email (check spam) with the lead's information. We ask that you respond to leads within 24 hours (1 business day). After 48 hours (2 business days), we'll reassign the lead to another partner if no action has been taken. This is to keep the process fair and to ensure potential clients are kept happy.
This is a feature that enables ecommerce businesses to reach out to you directly. Again, we ask that you try to respond in a timely manner.
How to respond?
From the email notification you receive when a request is made, you can click “let A2X know you have this”. This will let us know if you have accepted the lead. Sometimes you may find the lead isn't the right fit for your practice, so please decline the lead, so we are able to reassign it. Lastly, it would be great if you could let us know once you've signed the client, this will help us get better at assigning the right leads to you.
