May accountant webinar recording & slides

May 14, 2013

Hi all,


Thanks so much to those that joined me today for our May accountant webinar…there were over 300 of you! Lots of great questions and fun as always.


For those that had to miss it, here is the recording:

If you’d like, here are the slides as well. They aren’t that helpful without the recording, so I recommend you use them as a viewing aide but not by themselves: May webinar slides


I know some folks have had trouble listening to the recording in the past–hopefully we have no issues this month! Unfortunately, after spending many hours on the phone with GoToWebinar, we have not been able to identify a source of the problem since the recording does work for the majority of viewers across different browsers and operating systems.


Talk to you all again soon!

Join us for our Twitter Year-end event January 16, 2013

January 14, 2013

Just for QuickBooks Online (US) users! Year-end is now upon us! Are you ready? We’re here to help small business owners with completing the most common year-end activities in QuickBooks Online, like how to prepare your 1099’s. We answer lots of year-end questions over the phone, but instead of keeping these conversations to ourselves, we’re inviting everyone to join a live Q&A session on Twitter where others can see what’s being said and hopefully benefit from the discussion.

So ask away! QuickBooks Online specialists will be on Twitter to answer your year-end questions on Wednesday, January 16, 2013 from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. PT.

To submit your question:
Login to Twitter on Wednesday, January 16, 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. PT, and tweet your question with the hashtag #QBOyearend.

For Twitter newbies, here’s how to send your first tweet:

  1. Visit Twitter and create an account if you don’t already have one. Make sure that the “Tweet Privacy” checkbox in the Settings menu is unchecked. If it’s checked, your tweets will be protected and we will not be able to see them.
  2. From Twitter’s homepage, write your tweet in the “What’s Happening?” box. Include #QBOyearend anywhere in your tweet and make sure to stay within the 140 character limit provided.
  3. Click on the “Tweet” button, and that’s it! You’ve sent your first tweet.
  4. To monitor what other people are saying, again go to Twitter.
  5. Enter #QBOyearend into the Search box at the top of the page and hit Enter. All posts with the #QBOyearend hashtag will appear.

See you there!
