    Short blogs or long ones - what are the benefits?(Part 2)

    The first half of this blog looked at the pros and cons of long blogs.

    In this second half we look at the pros and cons of shorter, punchy 350-500 word blogs on topics of interest to your clients and prospects.

    There are a lot of benefits to shorter blogs, as opposed to the long essays that some professionals like writing.  They include:

    1. Since it is far less time-consuming to write shorter articles, it is easier to get your team engaged.

    Long blogs or shorter ones: which is best for my accountancy firm's marketing?

    Should your firm be writing short punchy blogs, say 300 or 400 words, or longer ones that explore an idea thoroughly and give plenty of information?

    They both have their place, and in a perfect world your accountancy firm's blog may well have both. But before you start pasting any old stuff on your blog, let's explore the pros and cons of both... which will also explain why we typically recommend businesses new to blogging to get going with shorter ones to start with.

    However, short or long, a blog is no good if nobody reads it.

    Getting your accountancy firm to the top of Google - SEO tips

    Many accountancy firms fail to appear in one of the most effective sources of new leads when prospects are searching.... the first page of Google.

    While many have put in the effort and generate a regular flow of suitable leads, many other practices either fail to make it a priority or are in denial about its benefits (which of course becomes a self-fulling prophecy).   

    Not sure where your practice appears?
