FAQ page vs. Blog article – Where is best to post my content?

My client loves what PF has done for our firm. Who do you recommend for businesses that aren’t accountants?

*EDIT: UPDATED APRIL 2020 with new recommendations! You know PF works only and exclusively with accountants.

If I give away free stuff, am I educating and empowering someone so I put myself out of business?
