Is your law firm different?

Is your law firm different?

Law firms throughout the UK and internationally are facing the same challenge – how to distinguish their offering from that of a multitude of other law firms.

If you are no different from your competitors then you are a commodity. In order to avoid commoditisation you need to be able to differentiate your services with something unique, something that is not easily copied by other law firms and which is valued by clients and potential instructing agents. It’s never been more important for law firms to identify their own unique message and shout from the rooftops about how they offer a better, different service than their competition.

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.

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.
