The value of legal directories for your law firm

Directory season isn’t too far away and many of you will have the submission process on your radar, along with that familiar tightening of the stomach and slight cold sweat as you remember last year’s mad dash to the finish line on deadline day (the one you promised would never happen again the previous year.)Whilst it’s always nice to be recognised for your hard work, it’s important to understand why you’re pursuing a certain award or status. Our new Insight, "Are legal awards and directories worthwhile for your firm?" asks the question, would the time and effort involved in the submission process be better directed elsewhere?

Law firm websites for £500

Law firm websites for £500

We were recently invited to attend a meeting in London with a well-respected law firm with a tremendous history of working on high-profile cases that attract widespread media interest. The firm’s reputation in the market in which they operate is well established and the clientele they act for and type of instruction they receive has undoubtedly evolved with the times. There is however one aspect of their business that hasn’t evolved, and with one eye to the future, they contacted us to ask how they could improve their online presence with a view to attracting more clients.

Spinning plates – the life and times of an in-house legal marketing professional

digital marketing law firms legal website design glasgow scotland

Increasingly, we find ourselves speaking to law firms that have an in-house marketing resource, albeit in many cases that in-house resource is limited to one or two individuals. Coming from an in-house law firm marketing background myself, I find it heartening that law firms are recognising the value of having in-house marketing support during these times of unprecedented change in the legal profession. I have worked with some incredibly talented marketing professionals within law firms, professionals who have achieved a seat at the top table of their respective firms and who consistently make a tangible difference to their firm’s bottom line. Increasingly, I’m glad to say, having spoken with many legal sector marketing professionals over the past couple of years, marketing within law firms is increasingly being viewed as an investment, not an expense.

After 25 years, are law firms taking advantage of the internet?

law firms website design uk

Time stands still for no man, so the saying goes. This feels especially true for those of us involved in online marketing for the legal sector. While in my mind I’m still the same fresh faced Kurt Cobain wannabe as the kid in the baggy jumper, as I sit down to write this I suddenly feel rather old (because I am, my colleagues helpfully point out). Incredibly, websites, much like this photograph, have been around for 25 years (which is longer than some of our niche legal sector digital marketers!), while the first search engine was born in 1993 (Aliweb for those of you who are interested) and Google turns 18 this year. Remember a time before Google? Me neither!

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

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.
