Since then, a total of 950 licences have been given, with 892 of these still in use as of March 2017. (Although ABSs have not been fully introduced into Scotland, it is understood that the Scottish Government is going through consultation to draft legislation allowing its implementation, and therefore Scotland’s position remains relevant to the discussion of future-proofing your firm).

effective-email-marketing-law-firms

The topic of the effectiveness of email marketing for law firms and professional services companies is one which marketers regularly debate; is it on its way out? The answer is that it certainly doesn’t appear to be. One of the best statistics to quash this argument is the fact that nowadays more than 200 million emails are sent every minute, according to this article. In a society where everyone’s inbox is updated daily with a fresh batch of emails, it’s essential that yours stand out. And what we tend to find from speaking to many lawyers in firms without a marketing department (whether inhouse or outsourced) is that email marketing is almost always put on the back-burner, whether because their contacts database hasn’t been updated in years or they simply don’t have the time or resource. Below we’ve outlined 5 of our top tips for making sure your law firm’s newsletter is effective in capturing the attention of recipients. If marketing through email is an unfamiliar concept to you, please click through to read more on the benefits of email marketing for law firms.
