Should an Accountant Blog?

In today’s world, having a blog is a very important part of every business, including that of an accountant. Some accountants say that they do not have the time to blog, or that they don’t know what they should write about in a blog. It isn’t too difficult though. Even though you might be a “number person”, you can still find areas of your business, such as changes to the law, changes to the technology that you use, and more that could be interesting to write about in a blog. You could even write about some local happenings in the community. The blogs do not have to be overly long, nor do they have to be masterpieces, so they should not take up too much time.

When you have a blog, it is going to provide you with a host of different benefits. Once you see the benefits that your blog can offer, you will see why you just can’t avoid blogging for another day!

Accountants with a blog are going to be working actively on their SEO. With every blog they write, they are filling up the search engines with information that is useful to prospective new clients. Your current clients can get quite a bit from the posts, as well. In addition, you can add social media icons to the posts, so that your readers will be able to share them with their network. This means that it should be possible to gain more followers and visitors to your site with your posts.

The blog posts give you a chance to exercise your creativity, as well. Best of all, your readers will be able to comment on and interact with the posts, which can give you feedback. You can use this feedback to help focus your firm and perhaps even learn more about areas where you can improve.

Of course, for those who are really stuck when it comes to ideas, outsourcing is always a possibility. Those accountants who outsource their blogging duties should make sure that they are working with a company or individual who knows English well and who can write informative and interesting copy. Again, it doesn’t have to be Shakespeare, but it does need to be coherent!

Blogging remains important for businesses, and it seems as though this is going to be the case for some time. Starting a blog now, if you do not have one already, is a great idea. It can do wonders for your accounting firm.
