online-marketing-for-law-firms-2017

Is your law firm lagging behind in terms of digital skills and online presence? You’re not alone. According to a recent survey reported in The Times, more than half of Scottish small businesses do not have a website and do not use social media to promote their business. With 56% of Scottish businesses having no online presence, and 34% of companies believing that a digital presence is simply ‘not relevant’ to their business, the Scottish economy is facing a massive digital skills deficit – one which could dictate which business thrive and which simply disappear.

legal aid cuts

More than ever before, firms that provide legal aid need to find alternative revenue streams. In England and Wales, the effects of LASPO are still being felt. North of the border, the Law Society of Scotland are expressing concern about the proposed cuts to legal aid announced in December's 2016's Scottish budget. As such, law firms that provide legal aid services throughout the UK need to look at ways in which they can future proof.

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!

What is ‘Mobilegeddon’?

As many will already be aware, Google had a major update to its mobile search algorithm on Tuesday 21st April. The changes meant that websites that weren’t mobile optimised would see a dramatic dip in their rankings on Google. What's more - Google has hinted that the changes will dwarf those of two of its previous major updates Panda and Penguin.

Nor would you want a website which didn’t rank well when a potential client was searching for your services online.

Announcing MLT’s first American Client. The Law Offices of Nolan Klein

Nolan Klein Law

I founded Moore Legal Technology more than a decade ago. In that time, we have gone from strength to strength. I started MLT in 2003 because I spotted a growing chasm in the legal services industry – that between the partners, many of whom who had earned their stripes before the fax machine was invented, and the IT support department. The 'dot com' boom was over, and the technological tide was rising again. It was time for law firms to embrace the economic potential of the internet.
