How to Take Your Freelance Accountancy Firm Online

Many accountancy firms began as a small, freelance business

And although small, even freelance accountancy firms need high-quality websites that demonstrate their services and effectively spread the word of their business. But how exactly do you go about setting up your freelance accountancy firm online?

We’ve brought to you the 5 main steps to giving your freelance accountancy firm a great online space.

Find a platform

There are many platforms out there that can help you create your website, it just depends on the individual circumstances of your business. If you’re looking for a quick and effort-free way to get online, then template sites like Wix or Squarespace will be best! However, this will not give you the means to truly replicate your unique business, or help you stand out amongst your competitors.

Going with a more renowned site platform such as WordPress not only gives you the flexibility to make the site your own but guarantees a long-lasting site that can grow alongside your business. If you don’t have the means to work with such a platform, sourcing a web design agency can help!

Finding an agency

Hunting for the right agency takes time, as you need to find one that suits your needs and that brings your vision to life. Will they take your specific business and its needs into account? Are they going to be thinking of your target market? These are questions you need to be asking when deciding on what agency will be right for you.

Create a brand

In order to stand out amongst your competitors, you will need solid branding so your services can be easily recognised. It’s time to have a think about what your freelance accountancy firm represents, its ethics and what you want to bring to your clients. This might help you begin to mind map logo ideas, colour palettes and other design ideas.

If your not as handy with words like you are with numbers, then seeking the help from a copywriter is the best way to guarantee flawless content that demonstrates your high-quality services.
