In previous decades, attorneys like you may have been able to generate buzz for your practice through print ads, newsletters, and traditional marketing strategies; that’s simply not the case in 2019. With so many firms in competition for the same cases, you have to take prompt action to stay on clients’ radars if you hope to have a steady flow of business.
Targeted communications can help you grow your business, generate great referral leads, and keep you in touch with past and present clients, media contacts, and more.
Organizing Your Contacts
You can organize your contacts easily by switching over from Word documents and Excel spreadsheets to a contact relationship management (CRM) tool. These programs will allow your firm to categorize contacts, easily add new contacts, and define your sales process. Some CRM programs can even send out targeted communications on your behalf – an invaluable tool if you’re trying to home in on your best clients and referral sources.
When organizing your contacts into different lists, include categories such as past clients, insurance professionals, media contacts, lawyers, business owners, and more. The goal is to be able to identify a group where you have many contacts and determine the best types of targeted communications for that group.
