Linking In

We’ve added LinkedIn profiles on our Xero Advisors directory. Simply click on the person’s name to see the individual profile they’re sharing.

Accountants and other advisors have been key to our success at Xero. We’ve seen online accounting change the relationship between business owner and advisor. With everyone able to work off the same set of numbers – rather than emailing files around – small businesses can cost-effectively get the coaching they need to be more successful.

We’ve always promoted our partners and we get a real thrill when they call saying they’ve just landed a new customer who found them on our directory.

We are frequently asked to recommend advisors. After some brainstorming we came up with the idea of adding LinkedIn profiles as another way that our advisor partners can differentiate themselves, leveraging the profiles they’ve already created on LinkedIn.

To add LinkedIn profiles to your Xero Directory listing, please email the names and LinkedIn profile URL’s of the staff you’d like to display to your Xero Account Manager. Here’s a tip: You can create a custom URL under Edit Profile, Public Profile option on LinkedIn.

Let us know what you think.

Accounting professionals have moved on from the question “why cloud?” to asking how they can use the cloud to move forward in the current accounting landscape. CEO and Executive Director of the Maryland Association of CPAs, Tom Hood, recently told AccountingWEB how accountants should not just “manage” change but “lead” it, while still keeping sight ...
