Lawyernomics 2017: Day One Recap

We're coming to you from Lawyernomics 2017, held this year at the Bellagio Hotel in Las Vegas. We're proud to be sponsoring the conference for the second year in a row. Day One of the conference featured some great speakers - including Avvo CEO Mark Britton, who broke down several key changes to the legal environment. Britton noted that lawyer job growth has dramatically slowed, with legal work often going to Read More

Why We’re Not a One-Stop Shop

Every once in a while, we chat with a lawyer who wants to know why we're not a one-stop shop for all their legal marketing needs. The conversation often goes like this - "I really like what you guys do but I want to work with a single company that can handle everything." I get it - there's no doubt it would be convenient to only have one vendor relationship to manage. But if you really think about it, working with Read More

Why Hire a Marketing Company That Focuses Solely on Lawyers?

At Spotlight Branding, we focus exclusively on small law firms. There are a handful of reasons why we do this, but here's what it boils down to: Small law firms face unique challenges, serve a unique client base, and require a unique branding and marketing strategy. Many of the strategies that work for other professions and other industries aren't relevant for lawyers and won't produce results. Here are five Read More

Four Ways to Maximize Your Networking ROI

Networking is a critical piece of the business development puzzle for just about every lawyer. Referrals are arguably the very best source of new business - and an active, engaged network is critical to generating those referrals. In addition, for lawyers still in the "I have more time than money" phase of growing their firm, networking is even more crucial. Unfortunately, it's easy to waste your time. You need a Read More

Five Reasons to Include a Blog on Your Law Firm Website

Every lawyer's website should include a blog. And you should regularly create new content for it. I've talked elsewhere about what that content should look like, so I won't repeat that here. Here are five significant reasons to include - and regularly update - a blog on your law firm website. 1 - Engage visitors. If you create blog content that provides practical information for your website visitors, you're Read More

Law Firm Marketing: Don’t Be Afraid to Narrow Your Focus

Here's a business paradox for you: The less you do, the more money you'll make. I'm talking specifically about practice areas and services provided. Most attorneys don't limit their practice much - I'm sure you know plenty of lawyers who practice family law, estate planning, business law, with some criminal defense on the side. Maybe you're one of them. It's easy to understand why. We're all trying to grow our Read More

How to Close the Referral Gap

This post was originally published as a guest-blog for Evolve Law.  According to a marketing survey conducted by Texas Tech, 83% of satisfied customers are willing to refer products and services. But only 29% actually do. In other words, the average business is only receiving one-third of the referrals they could be getting from their customers and clients. Apply this statistic to your law firm and you’ve got Read More

How to Use Social Media for Your Law Firm, Part 2

Last week we covered several critical goals for an effective law firm social media presence. I recommend that you read the entire post if you haven't already, but here's a recap of the "big four" goals you should accomplish on social media: 1 - Build top-of-mind awareness with clients and referral sources. 2 - Enhance your credibility and reflect your status as a highly-educated and skilled professional. 3 - Read More

How to Use Social Media for Your Law Firm

It's 2017 - and at this point, most lawyers have accepted that they need to have some type of presence on social media. Maybe it's a LinkedIn profile, maybe it's a Facebook business page, maybe it's a Twitter account, or maybe you're not sure where to begin. The problem is that "social media presence" is an impossibly nebulous term and just deciding that it's "time to get on social media" is so vague that it Read More

Why Your Law Firm Website Should Repel (Some) People

Question - should your law firm website repel visitors, actively discouraging them from contacting your law firm? The answer is (sometimes) YES, which may come as a surprise to some. Of course, your website should make you extremely attractive to your target market - by positioning you as an expert in your area of practice, by providing valuable resources, by making it easy to contact you, among other Read More
