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.

Apply this statistic to your law firm and you’ve got 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

Four Reasons to Include Video on Your Law Firm Website

Video is an important component of an effective law firm website. If you're not featuring video on your website, here are four reasons to consider doing so today: 1 - Create instant rapport. Video is the most personal and intimate form of mass-communication available.

Law Firm Marketing: How to Attract the Work & the Clients You REALLY Want in 2017

Be honest with yourself: How much time do you spend each week doing work that you don’t enjoy, for clients that you don’t enjoy working with? If you’re like many lawyers, that represents a pretty significant amount of your time. And as a result, you’re not enjoying your practice as much as you should be, and your firm is not running as smoothly as it should be. You (and your staff) are more motivated, more Read More

Law Firm Marketing: How to Develop Your Unique Selling Proposition

Most conversations about marketing a law firm - or really, most businesses - are focused on the medium, not the message. It’s easy to get distracted by bright shiny objects - “Should we try AdWords? What about SEO? Or maybe a billboard?” Those are good conversations to have. The problem is that most firms aren’t first having a conversation about their marketing message. The channels you use to communicate your Read More
