Why Search Engine Optimisation for Accountants & Financial Advisors is Important

If you are an accountant or financial adviser of any kind, attracting clients through search engine optimisation or SEO and online marketing in general is probably one of the best things you can do for your business in the long run.

We’ve seen many accounting firms struggle with the ever changing online world in an attempt to attract new prospects and convert potential customers into paying clients.

Since the Yellow Pages for most consultants are not working as good anymore as they used to, digital marketing offers cost effective and ROI driven results.

However, first page Google rankings are not enough to generate new business. Without interesting, relevant and compelling content those high Google rankings for “accounting” or “financial planning” related keywords are pretty much worthless.

If you are looking for a professional digital marketing agency that understand the specific needs of the finance and accounting industry we highly recommend to get in touch with The Perth SEO Company.

With this tight competition, all business enterprises are equal as far the business licenses go and the terms of trade go. However, because of their relatively smaller capital base, the relatively smaller business enterprises are at a disadvantage. This is the reason these business enterprises need loans to expand and be on even playing field with the bigger enterprises.

The major concern for small enterprises is that banks and financial institutions have increasingly stiffened their norms and regulations for landing money to small enterprises as far, as the financing of the business is concerned.

Most small entrepreneurs have no collateral that is why they are commonly being declined of small loans by banks. Even if the loan applicants intend to buy a business that has a constant cash flow, the banks would still insist on collateral that would amount to around 50 to 100 percent of the total value of the business they want to purchase.

If you want to borrow money to start a business but do not have something to use as your collateral, you don’t have to worry! There are many other options for you.

When shopping for new coolrooms, you need to know all the characteristics and features of each coolroom. In order to be able to choose the one best for your commercial establishment’s needs, you need to know a ballpark figure on how much goods you are going to need space for in your coolroom.

Keep in mind that coolrooms come in a wide variety of food storage capacities and if you purchase one that is too big you will end up wasting money that you could have used towards any other important aspect of your business. On the other hand, if you buy a piece that ends up too small, you are just going to end up having to buy another one in order to store all of your food.

Another important factor that is in connection to picking the right size of your coolroom is the available space in your kitchen. You need to consider all the equipment in your kitchen and determine how much is left for your coolroom. The best thing you can do if you are not sure how everything is going to fit, is to go to a store offering coolroom sales and take the time to have a CAD drawing drawn up for your establishment.

Commercial coolroom is an important part to starting a business. Any restaurant or bar is going to need the some sort of refrigeration equipment in a few different sizes. So if you want to get the most out of your investment, pick wisely.

ACCC cracks down on fake reviews

If you are a businessman, fake online reviews can also hurt your company. Running a business takes a ton of effort. Aside from the managerial and other important tasks such as accounting and marketing, there is another issue that modern-day businessmen have to deal with – fake negative online reviews.

Today, online reviews are easy to find. Every business organisation is aware of the immense power that the internet holds. It is capable of altering your opinion regarding any topic under the sun. In the internet, anyone can say about anything and it is a known fact that you trust what past customers have to say about the product.

However, the problem with online reviews is that you cannot see the reviewer or know him at all. They may not be customers at all; they could possibly just be salespeople or marketing people in the disguise of customers, saying what they would want to say through promotions; or in some case, the other way around.

Therefore, next time you read your customer reviews is careful to verify whether they really are customers. Of course there is no way to verify an online review. Luckily, according to an article posted by Frank Chung at The Daily Telegraph Sydney, consumer watchdog is getting serious in its war against fake online reviews.
