In the past the best answer to this has been that you need a website because other accountants have got one. However, this is now not the case because we can supply you with an interactive marketing resource for your firm. We will also build an attractive brochure site for you, to give you a competitive advantage.
With the accountancy market changing rapidly and competition growing, it is increasingly important to be able to differentiate yourself from the competition, in order not only to pick up new clients but to retain existing ones. We believe that a Mercia totalSOLUTION website can contribute towards your differentiation (or more importantly the perception of it) and put you at the cutting edge of technology.
A Mercia totalSOLUTION website also enables you to keep in contact with your clients / prospects / contacts without you having to lift a finger. This is done via monthly newsletters and an email taxREMINDER service.
We are accountants designing websites for accountants. We have all the pre-written copy text and tools that you need to build a comprehensive, interactive site. Your client may be able to produce some nice graphics for you, but undertaking the project with him will result in a lot more work for you and is likely to end up with much less functionality and content. Not only this, we have all the systems in place to keep your site up-to-date and we are continually developing new products. We make it so easy . . . . . is there really a choice?
We can take anything you want to keep from your current site and incorporate it in a new Mercia totalSOLUTION website, which will include all the Mercia totalSOLUTION functionality. Alternatively look at our range of website resources and tools which can be used to enhance your current website.
Included in every package is web hosting. If your current domain (e.g. www.abcaccountants.co.uk) is registered with another ISP then all you have to do is make a simple change (something known as an A Record change that will point the traffic at our servers) and the site will be hosted on our servers - this will not affect your email or any other systems. We need to host the sites on our servers to make use of the software and database infrastructure that we've set-up.
No. We have developed a unique service called webBUILDER. This process will take you through the information we need step-by-step. It will also provide you with pre-written text for the brochure sections of your site. You can edit this text as much or as little as you like. We will then use this edited document to build your site. We try to avoid going backwards and forwards for information because we know how busy you are - webBUILDER aims to take the pain out of this process.
Yes. We will submit your site to the major search engines (including Google) using their free submission service.
Yes, we will be able to make use of any domain names you may own. If you do not have one then we will purchase one of your choice as part of the Mercia totalSOLUTION package.
This really depends on you! As soon as we receive your order we will send you webBUILDER. Once you return this form to us with all the relevant information, we will have your site up and running within seven working days.
Under NO circumstances will your contacts' details be passed on, or sold, to a third party.
