From the Oct. 2018 reviews of Website Builders for accounting firms.

Build Your Firm Accounting Website Packages offers a variety of web building solutions for accounting firms of any size. Build Your Firm offers three different types of website plans; the Premier Plan, which is best suited for smaller accounting firms; the Niche Plan, which is a good solution for firms that specialize in a particular industry, or niche; and the Custom Plan, which is best suited for mid-sized to larger firms that are looking for a completely customized website.

Extremely scalable, Build Your Firm also offers three hosting levels, with users able to scale up to the next level if desired. All plans can be hosted at any level, with all levels offering full SEO capability, an email newsletter, content library, and a social media posting wizard.

Build Your Firm does not use web templates, but creates every website from scratch, using their in-house staff to create custom content for each site. Build Your Firm also handles all subsequent website changes as well.

Those interested in Build Your Firm websites will first need to determine the plan type and hosting level they wish to purchase. They would then provide Build Your Firm employees with relevant data in order for them to begin building the website, including staff and partner information, key employee bios, the company logo, a list of services and/or specialty services offered by the firm, along with any other information that they wish to be included on the website. Firms without a current logo can choose one from Build Your Firm or can request a custom logo, if desired.

Specialized content such as articles and other resources are available from Build Your Firm, and a variety of other options can be added to the site, including custom graphics, videos, and slides. Firms can also choose to use some of over 600 stock photos included in the Build Your Firm library.

Firms can be reassured that their completed site will not resemble another site, as all websites are custom built around the needs of each firm. The Professional hosting level offers up to 6 email accounts for a firm, and the Platinum level hosting option offers unlimited email addresses for firms of any size. Domain management is also included in the cost of hosting the website, and users can point multiple domain names to a single website if desired.

Each firm receives an assigned consultant upon sign-up, with the consultant serving as the point of contact for any issues or problems that may arise. The consultant can also assist firms with email setup and any domain registration or domain management issues.

Along with standard web pages, Build Your Firm also offers a variety of tools and resources designed to build visibility as well as offer firm clients needed resources. These tools include a comprehensive tax center, which offers tax articles, current tax rates, and a link to the IRS website for additional resources. The content library is created by Build Your Firm and includes hundreds of articles that change monthly that firms can include in client newsletters, with users given the option to choose the articles they wish to include in their newsletter. A client dashboard is also available for Build Your Firm users to access help documentation, videos, and application support options.

Build Your Firm offers a variety of other applications designed specifically for accounting professionals, including a Practice Management application, an Accounting Marketing application, and a payment portal that can be used to accept payments from clients. The product also integrates with WordPress, for easy blog creation. Add-on options available include a Pay-per-Click advertising option, Retargeting Advertising, Blog Setup, and a Custom Logo Design.

Build Your Firm integrates with popular social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn, and the Platinum Plus hosting plan offers advanced SEO capabilities, as well as integration with Google Analytics.

Mentioned earlier, Build Your Firm offers three different plan types; Premier, Niche, and Custom. The Premier plan does not charge a setup fee, so monthly hosting is the only charge firms would pay. The Niche plan is for firms that specialize in a particular niche, with setup fees starting at $500. The Custom plan is the most comprehensive, with a setup charge of $1,750. All plans are can be hosted at any level, with Professional level hosting starting at $83.33 per month, Platinum Level hosting running $99.95 per month, and Platinum Plus hosting running $299.95 per month.
