Upon completion, the return is sent back to the customer for review and signature eliminating the need to meet in person.

Not only can you stream entertainment, you can plug a keyboard and mouse into the device to play apps and games from the Google Play Store. Whereas the unit can cost anywhere from $100-200 in other locations, customers who meet minimal thresholds can add receive one at the time their refund is funded by the bank for just $29.99.
Collaborating Marketing Efforts with Other Businesses
Advertising your services with another business allows you increase your market coverage area. When you each provide coupons that motivate customers to visit both of your businesses, you can increase customer traffic. By incentivizing the team members at the other location, you encourage their participation. Build strategies for creating messages that lend themselves to promoting both businesses and energizing team members to provide enthusiastic referrals.
$5000 Cash Advance / Loan
When customers defer their preparation fees to be taken from their returns, you can receive the full fees which you have posted for your services. The secondary benefit of using a bank product is participating in the up to $5000 Advance/Loan. Outside of word-of-mouth referrals, this is the strongest tool in most client’s marketing arsenal.
Incentivizing Customers to Offer Referrals
Just as co-marketing with other businesses provides access to new customers, rewarding customers for referrals will also help build your business. Besides the Android TV Box, discuss strategies for encouraging customers to provide leads through giveaway items, name draws and other rewards.
