Specialist growth accountancy firm

Home Our Work Baranov Associates

A well-ranking website helped young accountancy firm Baranov Associates connect with clients and reach near capacity in just 18 months.

The challenge

Baranov Associates is a small Cumbrian accountancy firm which helps businesses drive growth. Owners Liz and Chris Baranov wanted a website to support their vision. With an established local reputation as accountants, it was important that previous clients could quickly recognise them. They needed a website to present their experienced, friendly business. They also wanted to share professional insights and up-to-date tax advice with their clients.

Our solution

Liz and Chris came to us with a blank canvas, but a vision for a clean, bright and welcoming site which authentically reflected their business. We advised on the best way to define and construct the messaging, and a site map for the best user experience.

Tax rules are changing constantly, and potential Baranov clients are smart customers. They check out the quality of technical information and useful advice before they buy. We created ways for the Baranovs to share up-to-date information and professional insights to attract new customers.

A client hub gathers together a range of free resources along with latest videos. The Baranovs share further expertise via a blog on the website’s filterable News page. This page also includes curated latest business news and useful online tools .

The regular addition of new information to the site is great for the site’s Google rankings. We took measures to make sure it wasn’t unfairly penalised by Google for featuring duplicate content from two external feeds.

Development coincided with the Autumn budget – an important landmark in the financial calendar where potential clients look for advice. To make sure Baranov Associates could make the most of this opportunity, we launched a temporary holding page. This gave them a professional online presence to support their marketing communications.

Ongoing support and protection is guaranteed through our Bronze Care plan.

The results

  • The website enabled Baranov Associates to launch their new business and reconnect with old clients
  • It provides a great platform to share the latest news and tool with clients
  • In the 18 months since launch, the business has almost reached full capacity

“I approached Louise at Indigo Tree to help me produce an entirely new website, as well as an alternate agency. On every level, Louise’s response surpassed the other, and we are extremely glad that we appointed her to produce our website. Clear explanations in a language I can understand, speedy responses and advice to ensure we achieved our goals were part of the service, as was liaising with the designer to ensure that the original vision was delivered in a timely way and on budget. Louise and her team took our original ideas and refined them into a site that has gained fantastic feedback and which has been paramount to our launch back into the marketplace. It reflects us perfectly. I would wholeheartedly recommend Indigo Tree to anyone who wants to work with a web agency who will become an extension to your business and have your goals in mind at all times.”
