The new year always brings new trends, but in the accounting profession, many of the trends firms will face in 2017 are continuations from this year. Yet, there are some new things on the horizon that you should be thinking about, too.
In this industry, you often hear people share that firms spend between 2 and 4 percent of revenue on marketing. Well, what number is it exactly? And what is included in that calculation? These are important factors for a firm to properly benchmark how they stand in relation to the industry.
A few years ago, the Association for Accounting Marketing (AAM) partnered with the Hinge Research Institute to better figure that out. Firms were asked to submit their spending, as a percentage of revenue, in specific categories that it felt should be included in a budget. And they are conducting this survey again now to be released in 2017.
