What was the challenge?
Peter had created his own website using WordPress and had attended many seminars on SEO and website promotion. However, he wasn’t able “to find the time or energy to properly get the SEO working” for his website. His goal was to find professionals that can handle his website and social media marketing. He wanted to “improve online search results and solicit reviews from clients.” Because of this, Peter was finding it “difficult to identify and secure new clients” in order to make his business profitable.
How did CountingWorks PRO help?
Peter received an email indicating that he had an unclaimed listing and that there were clients looking for his services. He decided that he needed help with his website SEO and was interested in the social media posting and client communications option that CountingWorks PRO offered. According to Flournoy, he found the portal and related tools to be very “user-friendly and the staff to be both knowledgeable and helpful.” Partnering with CountingWorks PRO enhanced his online presence and increased his online reviews from clients.

Overall, CountingWorks PRO was able to solve the challenge Peter’s practice was facing, which was to outsource his website SEO, increase online presence and automate his client communications.
