Common Legal Marketing Questions
Yes! Many lawyers try to “do marketing” on their own and often run into issues around what they should and should not do; how they should be spending their time; and, what types of activities they should invest their money on.
Yes it does. Today every law firm needs a strategic SEO approach that will increase page rankings on Google, and help people find their firm based on keywords and other queries. Try doing a Google search on topics and practice areas you would like to be found under. If you’re not in the top three organic (not ads) search results, you need a law firm marketing SEO strategy.
Yes. Once you have set your firm up on Google My Business (GMB), it’s important to complete your GMB profile as thoroughly as possible by including your phone number, hours, a description of your firm, categories for your firm, photos, and by asking satisfied clients and referral sources to give five-star reviews on Google.
Yes! Mainly because when a client or referral source leaves a Google Review, they need to do so through their Google account. So every review can be traced back to the individual who wrote the review. Many law firms worry if they receive a negative review. In fact, a negative review out of 25 or 30 reviews actually makes your firm look more credible than a firm with only 5-star reviews.
Make sure you have a content marketing strategy. Post blogs and new content on your website. Actively post on social media. Send e-communications to clients and referral sources with links to your website. Work with a marketing partner who can perform strategic law firm SEO on your website. Ask clients to write Google reviews. As you can see, there is not just one answer. Rather, law firms need to have a comprehensive strategic marketing approach to driving more business to their websites.
Quite honestly, PSM Marketing is one of the nation’s leading legal services outsourcing firms. Why? Because we have over 30 years of legal industry-specific experience working with individual lawyers, law firms, practice groups, and industry groups to develop a strategic approach to new client development.
First, take a look at law firms you compete with and look at how they are branding themselves. Go to their website. Review their social media activities. Read a few of their blog posts. As you look at their branding, determine if you think it makes them look new and fresh, or if they look dated and stodgy. The first step to branding your law firm is to figure out what type of clients you are marketing to, and what will visually appeal to them.
Yes. Depending on the size of your law firm, you may have an in-house marketing director with a staff of marketing professionals. If your firm cannot justify an entire marketing team, it will benefit the firm to hire an outside consultant to come into the firm and help the firm develop a strategic marketing plan. Then, at PSM, we have the resources to actually implement the marketing strategy allowing your lawyers to focus on serving clients and expanding their relationships.
