"You have about two seconds. If your visitor can’t figure out what you sell or what the best thing about your firm is in two seconds, they’re gone. Don’t bury your best traits three clicks down; put them front and center on the home page."
No matter how web designs change over time or what tools come out to produce them, you can count on these ten hard truths. If you’re willing to accept them, you’ll get the most out of your website and you’ll avoid making rookie mistakes.

Ball also highlights the potential for blockchain to revolutionise transactions. “It’s especially exciting for financial services and the securities processing industry, because it removes the need for central authorities,” he says. “If you’re doing a share-sale at the moment it’s got to be conformed, certified, the money has to be checked in place. With blockchain you can do all that in one transaction.”

Story
Introduction
I'm a chartered accountant and member of Chartered Accountants Australia and New Zealand (previously known as the Institute of Chartered Accountants Australia). 

My interest in exploring how accountants can use social media led me to Google+ in 2011. I'm interested in how accountants can be better professionals, business leaders, employers, marketers, client relationship managers and trusted advisers, and so I regularly post links to these topics, and to others that help me make sense of being an accountant in the second decade of the 21st century. Your comments, encouragement and opinions are always welcome.
