As an accountancy firm, there is a certain level of professionalism you have to uphold
Especially when it comes to marketing.
A lot of people go straight to ‘fun, on-trend and out-there’ social media posts when they first think of online marketing – but this style, although it works for some, does not work for all businesses. Accountancy firms provide an important service, one that is built upon trust, reliability and confidence from their clients. So, when it comes to spreading the word of your firm and why they should choose it above the rest, you need to be thinking about how you can portray those particular attributes whilst engaging their interest.
We’re bringing you our top 5 tips on how to build an effective marketing plan, specifically for your accountancy firm.
Assigning your marketer/copywriter

Perfect your website content
Your copywriter can not only make your web content informative and fit to purpose but can also make it so it helps towards lead generation. This can be achieved through strategically chosen language, implemented CTA links and buttons as well as forms that are complemented by engaging content.
Utilise Social Media
Although accountancy is not the first industry you would benefit from social media marketing, with the right touch and adaptations, it can certainly work to your advantage.
