Professional websites for accountants
Web design that showcases your accounting expertise for real ROI
There are now more than 1.27 million accountants in the United States alone. So while many businesses and individuals need a CPA, they have plenty of options to choose from. Standing out in this highly competitive field starts with a mobile-friendly, optimized website that clearly communicates your value. That’s just the beginning, though.
Your website has to do more than list your basic services. It must differentiate you from competitors and allow clients to work with you conveniently, remotely, and efficiently. This calls for powerful functionality built into your site, like client intake, contracts & eSignatures, online scheduling, payment processing, and more.
Whether you specialize in tax preparation, payroll, bookkeeping, or business valuation, it's time to launch a well-designed, user-friendly website that demonstrates your credibility, streamlines client engagement, and increases lead generation.View our portfolio of accountant websites
What makes a professional accounting website?
Highlights trustworthiness and value
Seventy-five percent of people judge a company's credibility on its website, especially for clients seeking accounting services. They can’t afford to work with a company that lacks precision and attention to detail. Stellar design, clear and concise copy, and ease of navigation all play into the client journey. Incorporate smart design principles into your accounting website to demonstrate integrity.
Converts visitors into clients
The ultimate goal of every website is to convert visitors into new clients. Successful website design applies conversion tools like banners, pop-ups, and live chats to encourage more conversions. A strong SEO strategy will funnel traffic to your website, but you'll need to integrate additional design elements like forms, calls to action, testimonials, and urgency to transform traffic into clients.
Did you know that 43% of firms are increasing the amount of virtual work they do? Part of that shift from paper to digital is through the online client experience. Websites for accounts need to do more these days than provide basic contact information. Today, you need technology and automation that facilitates online communications, reminders, signatures, and more.
Reduces administrative liabilities
As an accounting professional, you want to allocate your time to helping clients make critical financial decisions, not chasing down overdue invoices or following up on leads. Make your website work for you and reduce business administrative tasks with automation and integrations. Eliminate redundancies by funneling more of your marketing, contact management, and invoicing through a centralized dashboard.

What separates a basic accounting website from a great one?
Accounting services are changing, and so should your website.
A basic accounting web page is just a landing page with text and basic functionality. It may offer a list of services and contact information but little else. But, these days, clients demand much more than a phone number and service menu. In fact, a recent survey reported that 82% of accountants find their clientele expect more than ever.
A solid website is built on core qualities like mobile-friendly design, rapid and reliable page speed, and search engine optimization. Beyond these basic principles, CPAs should demonstrate professionalism with helpful blog posts, easy navigation, compelling calls to action, and tools that let clients work with them almost entirely online. All of these elements drive traffic and increase credibility.
This is just the start. Once potential clients are further along the buying journey, a great website encourages conversion with banners, CTAs, intake forms, live chat, promotions, and well-timed pop-ups.

Frequently asked questions from accountants
Businesses don't take financial decisions lightly, including choosing what accounting firm to work with. So your digital marketing strategy, at its core, should strive to build trust and demonstrate your firm's unique value.
In more actionable terms, that could include social media built around free educational content, email marketing campaigns to gradually bring leads down the sales funnel, or more conventional approaches like keyword research and PPC ads.
When it comes to marketing your accounting services, there are so many possibilities. But it's easy to get started with B12's all-in-one solution. B12 comes packed with a suite of tools that empower you to drive more traffic, send email marketing campaigns, and guide prospects through the sales funnel.
SEO is a constantly evolving algorithm filled with indecipherable topics like rankings, traffic, alt text, click-throughs, keywords, and backlinks. But it doesn't need to be so complicated.
There are simple changes you can make to your site to optimize it for search engines and get on page one of a valuable keyword’s rankings, including:
- Perform keyword research to discover keywords that your audience is searching for
- Include targeted keywords naturally in page titles for each page on the website
- Add landing pages geared toward high-impact, relevant keywords
- Frequently publish engaging blog content
If maintaining SEO doesn’t fit your schedule or interest, B12 can help.
Our specialists find the right keywords and ensure SEO best practices are incorporated into your content and design, and that your firm is listed on relevant online accounting directories. We make sure your site is properly crawled by Google, and that the on-page experience pleases both visitors and search algorithms. As SEO best practices evolve, we ensure your site is up to date to help boost your search rankings and strengthen your online presence.
To start, you'll need a standout design with striking visuals that grab attention but don’t overwhelm your audience. If your site is too cluttered or busy, visitors will bounce. Your accounting website will also need to highlight any relevant information, like your services, credibility, and company information. There should be visual cues, such as CTA buttons, that naturally guide the visitor toward the next step in working with you.
Finally, you'll need to incorporate an online promotions strategy, including pop-ups, discounts, and banners. These elements all work together to attract new visitors and win them over to repeat clients who are willing to give you a referral.
If a custom website sits on one end of the spectrum and a DIY version sits on the other, you'll find B12 as the perfect midpoint between the two extremes.
The B12 website builder offers time and money savings from AI technology, combined with the creativity and expertise of a real-life human team. You benefit from the speed and efficiency of automation without compromising on branding, copywriting, and user experience.
To start, answer a few basic questions about your business, and then our AI gets to work. In 60 seconds, you'll see a draft curated for your firm and the accounting sector, which we customize over the next 30 days or less to suit your accounting firm's clientele, vision, and brand.
Our unique AI-powered, human-tailored approach ensures a faster, painless web design process for accountants that gets the details right. It’s better than an agency because you don’t spend months going back and forth or blowing your budget. You don’t feel lost or frustrated, like many business owners do when creating their site using a DIY platform. With B12, from your first draft to a successful launch, it only takes 30 days and doesn’t cost tens of thousands of dollars.
