Why is a website essential for your accounting firm? More and more people are hopping on their phones or computers to find the best bookkeeping service in the area before they leave their flat or house – if you don’t have a website, how are you going to show up as an option, let alone a destination to visit?
Despite this, fewer than half of small-to-medium sized businesses (SMEs) have any meaningful online presence, despite the fact that nearly everyone is looking for local businesses online these days.
In other words, most customers are looking for businesses online, but most local businesses aren’t there. They’re as good as invisible to today’s customer. Most accountants know this – and are keenly aware that they need to get online if they want to bring their payroll and VAT returns services to more clients in their area.
So why haven’t they?
Well, most think it’s too expensive or time-consuming, or that they lack the technical know-how. Some of them paid a substantial amount for a website a few years ago that didn’t do much for their business in the first place and now looks dated and terrible – in other words, they’re wary because they’ve been burned before.
Luckily, there are some do-it-for-you alternatives available today specifically designed for small businesses like accounting firms, and a few even take care of things like hosting and other optimisations for you. Some will even update your information in multiple places, so you don’t have to worry about correcting things in your Google Maps listings or other directories; when you use UENI, for example, any information added to your accounting firm page will be automatically updated on these other platforms.

Not only do we create your website, but we also launch your Facebook Business page, verify you on Google Maps, and list your commercial cleaning company wherever on the web is relevant to your industry.
Each one of our websites cleanly and clearly displays your accounting firm’s location, the payroll services you offer and allows for online booking requests that go straight to you via SMS and email. Our website design is optimised for speed, adaptability, and presenting the information customers are looking for as clearly as possible.
