The Big Idea
HBC CPAs is a full service CPA firm located in Abingdon, VA. They offer a wide array of accounting services including tax planning and preparation, consulting, business valuations, accounting, audit, reviews and compilations, payroll processing, bill payment services, business advisory services and litigation. They provide these services to individuals, governments, coal companies, financial organizations and other professional and service companies to help them achieve their financial goals. This legacy accounting firm had a goal of increasing their business by 20% per year. This was to be achieved by creating an uplifted brand, a beautiful new website and an effective marketing plan.
We recommended this firm be positioned as big city expertise with small town service, which we then conveyed through their new brand language. We also crafted a new brand that modernized the firm’s image while retaining their warm, approachable feel.
“Since Kudzu began managing our brand, we have reached our growth goal of 20% per year.”
– Tom Hicok
After working with Kudzu to refresh their brand, develop a new website, curate a marketing strategy and provide ongoing management support, HBC CPAs exceeded their growth goals and are beginning to move into new markets. In 2018, Kudzu supported them in a name-change process. During this smooth transition from their former to new name, we ensured there was little to no market confusion or impact on the firm’s gross revenues.
