There are lots of ways to grow your firm with Gusto.
From reimagining payroll into a high-margin service by pairing it with People Advisory to saving clients so much time and money they’re able to pay you for more strategic services, we’re endlessly blown away by the volume and variety of what accounting professionals come up with.
Just take Acuity, which turned Gusto’s R&D Tax Credit Services into a $250,000 line of business with tons of upside. Or hiline, which spends 50 percent less time on payroll. Or the tens of thousands of accountant partners who turn Gusto’s partner program into a recurring revenue team by referring clients.
To make figuring out your own firm’s path easier, we’ve compiled these Gusto marketing materials to make co-marketing simple.
How to explain Gusto to your clients
Gusto is a modern HR platform for payroll, benefits, and more. The “platform” part is important—we’ve wrapped lots of helpful services around a core of payroll so business owners have nearly everything they need to manage and empower people. For example, Gusto includes recruiting tools, new hire offer templates, performance reviews, and integrations with benefits providers like retirement, health insurance, and more.
Business owners love Gusto’s friendly interface, as well as the emails it sends them about paperwork the platform has already filed for them and which they needn’t worry about.
Accounting professionals appreciate the simple dashboard for managing many clients, controlling what emails they receive, and doing things like running off-cycle payroll.
How to stay up to date (and earn CPE while you’re at it)
Gusto is always innovating. How do you learn what’s new? Your best resource is a program we call The Quarterly Scoop, where we present quarterly updates to our platform and partner program, often presented by an accountant from the community. (All Gusto partners are automatically signed up for this. If you aren’t, ask your partner advisor for help.)
