Q. How long is the listing contract?
A. You can unsubscribe at any time by sending us written cancellation (email fine).

 

Q. Our firm employs several accountants - how do we list?
A. We have tried to give this website a very personalised flavour. People want to deal with people, not corporations. Every accountant is therefore listed individually. However you can also activate a Firm Page once at least one accountant from the firm has listed. We also offer bulk discounts where more than one accountant from the same firm lists. Email us for details.

 

Q.Our firm has already invested in a website and we have been disappointed with the response. Why should FindanAccountant be different? 
A. Most people (including many website designers that develope individual websites for clients) grossly underestimate the time, expertise and resources required to successfully market a website. It is a full-time, ongoing job. They also do not realise that Website construction and Website marketing are two completely different fields which website developers usually do not have the capacity to execute. Nevertheless, if you do have a website our internal statistics have shown that click-throughs from your listing on our site to your website are substantial (justifying your investment in your own website).


Q. Won't certain accountants always appear at the top of the list on the initial search results page?
A. No, we have an algorithm in place which orders the list in a totally random fashion so that every accountant has the chance to be at the top of the list.


Q.How do I make changes to my profile once listed?
A. At the time of signing up, you elect a Username and Password. Once your application has been approved, you login to the Member area and can access and make changes to your own profile. Alternatively you can fax or email us the changes.

 

Q. As more and more accountants are listed - won't my listing get lost amidst the crowds?
A. We aim to limit the number of accountants that appear on the initial search results page. This will be monitored on an ongoing basis and achieved through the application of a series of progressive filters. We have specifically not broken the dial code area in the main search into suburbs, as we do not believe that choosing the accountant down the road is necessarily the best way to find the most suitable accountant. Bear in mind too, that in a traditional directory where all that is supplied is a name and number, a large selection of accountants is much more of a problem. Our accountants can be easily differentiated according to their offerings by the astute web visitor.

 

Q. Ek is 'n Afrikaanse Rekenmeester - hoe sal die werf my help?
A. Jy is welkom om jou besonderhede in Afrikaans te lys (baie ander het dit alreeds gedoen). Ons is besig om 'n taal soek filter in die toekoms aan te skaf en ook 'n spieëlbergwerf in Afrikaans te begin (met geen ekstra subskripsie koste nie).

 

Q. Do I have to have a photograph?
A. Photographs are optional, but we believe that it is in your best interests to have one. If you wish we can load your company logo instead of a personal photo.

 

Q. How do you market the website?
A. We market the website through a comprehensive multi-layered strategy:

  • On-line advertising in several prime niche positions.
  • National press advertising (print and radio).
  • Comprehensive publicity campaign. (publicity already achieved: Features in Sunday Times, Men's Health, Personal Finance Magazine read article, Die Burger, Femina and Cosmopolitan. Numerous websites have also featured our story, including the Proudly South African website who decided on their own accord to put us on their front page as an example of South African innovation. Radio 702 and Cape Talk have interviewed us comprehensively on air.
  • Ongoing Search Engine Optimisation (SEO). We are employing top consultants to assist in this regard.
  • Keyword sponsorship.
  • Cross-linking with other professional search sites.
