Typically businesses use accountancy firms that are geographically close to them over large corporate accountants. There are several reasons for this, including the understanding that local accountancy firms can provide more personalised service and have a personal relationship directly with the business. To ensure that your firm can be found online when businesses are searching for local firms, it’s important to focus on SEO by creating local landing pages that will drive targeted traffic to your site, increasing the likelihood of conversions.
Another consideration for your SEO strategy is to think broadly about what terms you would search if you were a prospective client. As an example, if someone wanted to search for “Accountants in London” what are they expecting to find in the returned result? Testimonials of existing customers, details of the services you offer, your location, a local telephone number, FAQs? Putting yourself in the mind of your customer will help you to build a better user experience which will in turn enhance your search engine rankings.
