The ECD Difference

Why choose CPA Digital Pro?

We are results-driven. We don’t just focus on getting you more traffic, we want to drive new talent to your firm at a substantial return on investment. 

Our company was founded by a fellow CPA who knows the accounting profession inside and out. Let us leverage our 15 years of experience to build your talent pool so you can focus on what you do best.

Our Guiding Principles

Here's how we do it:

Live the Golden Rule

It’s a profoundly simple idea but it guides everything. We treat our clients the way we want to be treated.

We make you look good (really!)

Our goal is to make you look good to the people that matter.

Never chase an update or response.

We hate being neglected ourselves, so we don’t neglect our clients.

Never be locked into a long-term contract

Our clients stay because they want to.

Never wonder if your brand matters

You’ll never wonder if you matter to us.

Good People

We want to work with people that we’d have over for a family bbq.

Speak the truth and speak plainly

We don’t sugar coat, especially when it comes to your business.
