To increase odds of having potential clients come your way, remember a few pointers.
- Don’t be afraid to ask for help – Given you have folks coming to you for legal advice, do you ask for help with marketing? If you have not to this point, is it time to change that? With the right legal marketing experts behind you, your firm can showcase all you have to offer. This starts with a stellar website (see more below), but it does not end there. Make sure you do as much as possible to promote your brand so that consumers know all about you.
- Keep that website humming – When it comes to your legal website, you want to be sure it is firing on all cylinders. Do you have a site to provide potential clients with a full list and description of your legal services? Do you have good blog content that can prove beneficial to prospective clients? Is your website easy to navigate? Remember, a site that is difficult to move around on can turn off consumers in seconds. Last, make sure you have your pertinent contact info in a spot where consumers can find it without hassle.
- Social media – Have you done much with social media in recent years? Too many businesses in and out of the legal profession fail to capitalize on all social media has to offer. With that in mind, do not be one of those types of businesses. If you have not to this point, get active on Facebook, LinkedIn and other relevant social sites. When you do, you can in essence have free promotions 24/7. Be sure you take time to respond to relevant comments and questions from those reaching out. Some potential clients could be swayed to you when they see you are willing to take the time to engage them online.
- Word-of-mouth – As important as online efforts are, do not forget about word-of-mouth. When a satisfied client leaves your office, he or she is more apt to let outside family and friends know about you. When that happens, you could see more business coming your way. One way to spread word-of-mouth referral is asking a client if they would agree to do a short testimonial for you. Whether it is online, on TV, the radio or even a newspaper, positive words about your firm go a long way.
