Here are 6 great top level content concepts that Cloud Accountants should be creating content for.
#1 Benchmark Reports
Benchmarking is the process of comparing one’s business processes and performance metrics to industry bests and best practices from other companies. Dimensions typically measured are quality, time and cost. In the process of best practice benchmarking, management identifies the best firms in their industry, or in another industry where similar processes exist, and compares the results and processes of those studied (the “targets”) to one’s own results and processes. In this way, they learn how well the targets perform and, more importantly, the business processes that explain why these firms are successful.
Decide on your sector and publish essential key figures that your target market will want to read
#2 Create a Top Ten List
People love reading lists, they spread like wildfire around the internet and they are very quick to do.
Create a top ten list of your favorite XERO plugins, Cloud solutions, SaaS or even tax laws that your clients should know about.
