Scottish Law Firms Lack Essential Digital Skills – Prepare your firm for success

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.

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.

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.

Creating Effective Email Marketing Campaigns for Law Firms - 5 Best Tips

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.

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

digital marketing law firms inhouse marketers

Increasingly, we find ourselves speaking to law firms that have an in-house marketing resource. 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.

Local SEO Update: How Can Law Firms Rank Higher In Local Search?

shutterstock 127728248

Google recently updated its document on local ranking signals. The addition of ‘prominence’ to the document would suggest that businesses which have been focusing on quality SEO work are subsequently more likely to benefit from a boost in local search rankings. In this blog I will elaborate on what this really means and what your firm should be focusing on going forward for great local search rankings.

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

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!).
