Firms continue to rely on referrals from existing clients for the bulk of new client acquisition: 73.4% in 2016-2017 compared to 66.5% in the previous report. More respondents are reporting that their websites are a larger part of their marketing and promotional strategy than in the past: a growth of 6%. Social media use has also grown by 2.7% during the same period.
