Today, your image online is what will win or lose business for you. Prospects search for accounting professionals online and if they don’t find you, they will never contact you. When they find you, they will check you out online and, based on what they read and see, they will make the decision on whether or not you are the solution they are looking for. Only after they are convinced that you can help them will they contact you. To successfully attract new prospects, your online presence must make people aware of you and convince them that you can solve their problem.
How can you create an online presence that is professional and effective, but doesn't cost a lot or take a lot of time to maintain? In this workshop we will examine:
Making people aware of you
- What you can do on your website in order to rank highly in web searches (probably the number one way people will become aware of you)
- How to leverage social media and not end up wasting time or money on social media strategies that don’t work
- How can local search help you tap into the growing mobile search trend
- Offline ways to leverage online content to drive awareness
Convincing people that you can solve their problem
- What your site needs to communicate so you get only the most qualified prospects to call you
- How to develop your site so it is easy to maintain
- What to look for in a website developer to improve the chances your website project will be successful
- Why you should include video content on your site and how to add video easily
Evaluating your online efforts
