The Accounting Practice Exchange is no different to these sites and the feedback we receive from brokers that use our site is that the leads it generates are of a significantly higher quality than 'other' general business classified listing sites. With competitive rates and excellent levels of highly targeted website traffic interested in accounting M&A opportunities, the real question is 'why aren't you advertising with us'?
