Accounting marketers face many challenges when managing the needs and demands of the department. The Partner group has expectations about what marketing should be doing for the firm. Depending on the size and sophistication of the firm these expectations can differ.

This most commonly comes in the form of someone that is responsible for proposal development or event management. For smaller firms, the department is often a “one-man band” that requires the accounting marketer to wear many hats to meet the firm’s expectations.

Google regularly enhances and adds to its search engine result page (SERP) features. One of the most interesting features that’s noticed by marketers is position 0. This is the small box that appears at the top of the SERP when someone conducts a search based on a question.

Over time Google has changed its search results and how they are presented to provide the searcher with additional value, access to information and enhanced ability to get to important information in the shortest amount of time possible. In fact, there is currently 16 search engine result page (SERP) features designed to make using Google friendlier and more convenient. These features often referred to as packs, ranging from featured snippets, image packs, and reviews, to news boxes and related questions. More than likely you have seen, used or experienced some or all these SERP features at some point in the past. As you can imagine, having your firm’s information appear in one of these features is not only good for visibility but also has a powerful impact on the click-through rate (i.e. people who come to your site because it’s there).

     -     Oct 11th, 2018   -     Search Engine Optimization   -     0 Comments

Any seasoned marketer or business owner wants to make the right investment when it comes to marketing tactics to help accomplish their objectives. This is the case whether it’s traditional advertising, radio, print publication and even search engine optimization (SEO). Since many businesses are unfamiliar with the various ways to demonstrate progress in SEO, they typically have only one metric in mind when it comes to identifying the return, and that’s new business. While this is certainly a compelling metric and one that should be regularly monitored, there are several others that can provide additional insight into the return being received from SEO efforts. It’s important to measure progress in ways that extend beyond just the amount of new business generated by a website because different sites have different maturity levels in terms of content quality, engagement, influence and amplification. Therefore, the appropriate level of return for one site may be completely different for another.

When it comes to website and search engine marketing efforts, the time comes when business owners and marketing managers realize they need the assistance of an outside.

From time to time we work with companies that have microsites that focus on a specific area or niche the company serves. The thinking is that the company’s expertise can be prominently featured and not have to compete for prominence as it does on the main site.
