How Strong Is Your Law Firm's Marketing?
Analyzing Your Site…
Matt, in his own words.
My first consultation process is different because I am just there to help. I will go through what you are currently doing, and if you have something in place that is working very well, then I will not mess with that. However, I will come up with a solution that will compliment your current setup to maximize your profits in a way that makes you comfortable. Bottom line: I will develop the best possible solution based on your specific needs. If you decide not to go with me, you will at least learn some valuable information about the industry that can be applied to what you are already doing.
Success drives me, and I strive to be number one in my position. I am very competitive and want to beat anyone else who is in my current position, and this is what I want for my clients as well. As far as law firm marketing goes, in past years you would buy a big Yellow Pages ad and that was how you reached clients. Today, the market has changed dramatically. Virtually everyone looking for legal help these days is using the internet, whether it be their cellphone, tablet or computer. Without law firm marketing, firms would only bring in clients through word of mouth or referrals. Our job at FindLaw is to get your phones ringing through the most advanced form of integrated online marketing utilizing your website presence, SEO, social media outreach, and much more.
Clients should choose FindLaw because of the resources we can provide. Being a part of Thomson Reuters and our sister company WestLaw is a great advantage. FindLaw is the premier site for free legal information with more than 11 million visitors each month, and we have the largest online lawyer directory available. FindLaw’s digital marketing solutions bring a strong brand presence with award-winning website design, search engine optimization, internet advertising, online videos, attorney profiles social media management, and much more. We also offer 24/7/365 support to all clients.
Philadelphia Integrated Law Firm Web Marketing Solutions
The legal markets here in the Philadelphia metro area can be challenging and difficult to penetrate. Downtown Philly is highly competitive, with lots of lawyers and law firms, many of whom spend a fortune on attorney advertising. As you go further out into Delaware, Montgomery, Chester and Bucks Counties, the Mainline area and into towns like Media, it becomes less competitive, but it is still challenging to compete in common practice areas like personal injury, criminal and family law. In markets like these, it is more important than ever to have a strong digital presence. Billboards around town might establish your name, but it doesn’t give the client enough information to research their legal issue or your firm.
Consumers are becoming smarter and more educated, so it is vital for firms to be able to attract them, engage them within their site or directory listing, and finally connect with them through a phone call or email. FindLaw’s industry-best integrated law firm marketing programs provide the tools Philadelphia area attorneys need to build their practices. After a thorough assessment of the specific needs of your firm, our local experts integrate just the right mixture of our cutting-edge tools to address your needs, accomplish your goals, and maximize return on your marketing dollars. At FindLaw, we are continually adapting to shifts in the online marketplace, and we never stop working to keep our clients several steps ahead of their competition.
