Why Do Accountants Need An SEO Strategy?

The size of the internet is growing faster than ever before, with over 1 billion active websites. Standing out among the crowd is also now harder than ever before with 87% of users not going past the first three search results. That is where Search Engine Optimisation (or SEO) comes into play.

SEO is the term to describe the process of ranking a website in a search engine (think Google) to appear on the first page for different search terms. Knowing what and what not to do can take years of learning – not to mention the time investment it is to carry out all the associated tasks.

For Accountants and Accounting Firms, the lifetime value of a customer is so high that each client is extremely valuable. Due to that, the small investment in SEO can conceivably bring ROI returns anywhere form 10-100x the cost of acquisition.
