Video marketing for law firms - untapped online strategy opportunities in the legal sector

Video marketing for law firms - untapped online strategy opportunities in the legal sector

Just as 2014 was labelled “the year of content marketing”, 2015 has been called the “the year of video marketing,” (probably by somebody selling video marketing services I would imagine. I think I’ll start putting it out there now that the coming years will be those of online business generation for law firms!). I digress, all unnecessary labels aside, law firms, like any other businesses, require to find new and interesting ways to reach potential clients and video remains largely untapped in that regard within the legal sector. Read my new guide to video marketing for law firms including 5 top tips for video marketing excellence for law firms.

Social Media for Law Firms: Benefits, Risks and Generating Business Online

This article was first published by Howden Insurance Brokers, and is re-published here with permission.


 Solicitors are risk averse by nature, and the perceived risks of social media marketing can put a lot of law firms off. However, social media is becoming ever more prevalent in modern culture. This head-in-the-sand approach could mean law firms without a social media marketing strategy are missing out on a good chunk of business.

You have an impressive looking website, social media campaign and PPC strategy, your site is ranking well in Google, you have tons of quality content throughout your site and social media platforms but somehow you are not pulling in half as many enquiries as you were expecting.

Is your law firm getting the Google search rankings it deserves? There are new competitors on the block

Is your law firm getting the Google search rankings it deserves? There are new competitors on the block

How is your law firm doing in search? Where do you rank? What does your meta data look like for organic results for your main legal services? What do your PPC ads look like? Don’t know? Don’t care? Over the next ten years we’ll be seeing more and more businesses, not necessarily law firms nor solicitors, advertising alongside you in organic (whether in the local block of results or otherwise) and paid Google search. And it probably won’t be the same competitors you may have expected to appear there in the past. In today’s blog, I look at the forces that are driving such unexpected competitors to appear there, how you could be missing out on significant amounts of new business and what you can do to take advantage of the opportunities the internet still presents law firms and solicitors who deserve to have an outstanding online presence.

Recently we were invited to tender for the delivery of online marketing services to a long-established law firm in England. At the meeting one of the key discussions related to whether we’d recommend focusing the online marketing efforts and investment into targeting people searching locally for their lawyer or nationally. Indeed, we get asked this a lot and taking the wrong approach on this could be costing your firm thousands of online enquiries each year. So what’s the right answer?

Online Reviews for Law Firms

Online Reviews for Law Firms

“My law firm has a bad review online. Can you delete it?”

We get asked this question all the time. Unfortunately, there’s not a lot we can do to get rid of negative reviews. Google, Facebook and review services such as Trustpilot, get companies reporting bad reviews all the time, and it has to be genuinely libellous or inappropriate to get them to take action.

What is ‘Mobilegeddon’?

As many will already be aware, Google had a major update to its mobile search algorithm on Tuesday 21st April.
