(N.B. there are 9 references to AC/DC songs throughout this article. We will send a £20 iTunes voucher to the first person who gets in touch to tell us what they are)

Consumers would rather go online in search for a solicitor

For some people, finding the right solicitor is half the battle. So, how do they find exactly what they are looking for with someone they can trust? Previously consumers would refer to family and friends for referrals but, as our new digital marketing expert Nicole Donald notes following new research outlined below, it seem times are changing as the Internet emerges as the number one resource.

When we first started generating business online for law firms we always had a hurdle to overcome – the doubt and scepticism of lawyers. I would like to say that as the Internet has become a fundamental tool in the day to day life of the legal professional this hurdle has disappeared, but I’d be lying. Despite using the Internet to find and buy all types of products and services sometimes lawyers, for some bizarre reason, think that this same type of buyer behaviour does not apply to them.

Infographic on Inbound Marketing: 57% of businesses have acquired a customer by blogging; 42% through Twitter

Inbound marketing infographic

A fundamental change has been happening with Internet marketing and indeed with marketing itself in the past few years. Facilitated by the Internet, including social media, people rely much less on TV, radio, newspaper and billboards to learn about and connect with products or services ("outbound marketing"); instead, two-way conversation focused not on buying a person's attention, but instead earning it, is becoming key for people to connect with products and services.

Does your law firm post its newsletters to a blog? Here are some reasons why it should...

Law firm newsletters are usually produced following hours of fee-earner time and are usually distributed by mail and email. Such newsletters have been, and indeed still are, useful both for marketing purposes and for keeping clients and potential clients updated with legal developments in practice areas of interest to them. While law firms also choose to post such newsletters to their websites, many are still missing out on the opportunities offered by blogging.

Social Media for Law Firms & Businesses: Avoiding Distraction

With an average of 600 tweets, 34,000 Google searches and 700 Facebook posts being made every second (source: Exact Target), today’s online conversation is a loud one. If harnessed correctly, the rewards for law firms, businesses or other professional organisations can be great. However, if care is not taken, employees and fee earners may be distracted to the point where the firm could lose a lot of money through reduced productivity.

One blog or two?

Often we speak to law firms and other professional service companies who are interested in setting up 'microsites' to focus on particular service offering, or niche. We generally advise against this for the same reasons that we would generally advise setting up a number of blogs, instead of focusing on one that is already doing well. Our reasons are detailed below, but we would happily go into more detail on any point covered.

Law Firms: How to generate business online.

I know our posts have been a haphazard in terms of timing, but we’re sticking with it and if you follow our advice you will attract new clients. We’ve given a brief overview of domains and templates and are now ready to move onto on page seo for law firms.

First things first; if you are commissioning a third party to design your website make sure that the following are editable:

1) Page Titles: The most important aspect of online seo – if your page titles aren’t keyword rich you’re onto plums.

2) Descriptions: Although the descriptions are hidden within the code of your site and have little actual relevance in terms of affecting your rankings, they should be drafted carefully as they present one of your first opportunities to get potential visitors to click on your natural results. Essentially they should include reference to page keywords together with clear calls to action (i.e. Phone 0845 620 5664 for free initial advice!)

3)Heading Tags: In the same way as headings in a written document help to identify degrees of importance and natural breaks, heading on a website serve the same function and help to distinguish less important body text frompage headers.

If you don’t have control of any of the above, then our advice would be to go elsewhere.

There’s no point in buying a Ferrari and keeping it in your garage

Unless you can no longer afford the petrol….

Recently we have been reviewing a lot of professional services firm websites and in spite of the fact that we shouldn’t be, we remain surprised at how many of them are being let down by proprietary content management systems.

Larger organisations often have vast amounts of content and good domain histories, and as such they should routinely rank well for the short tail and longer tail keyphrases related to their services. It would appear that often poor on page optimisation arising from inadequate CMS functionality is holding them back.

Traditionally larger professional service companies would have taken the view that ‘we do not wish to be instructed by members of the public and as such search engine rankings are not important to us’ but as internet usage continues to grow, particularly mobile internet searches, they run the risk of only being found by those who already know them thereby losing out on countless opportunities to grow their brand, extend their influence and reinforce their authority.

Recent research by Forrester (as brought to our attention by Ben at Barker Brooks) titled The Rise of the Digital C-Suite, where ‘C-Suite’ is a term used to describe the chief executives, heads of finance and heads of information at the 10000 most successful companies in the world highlighted that not only is the internet the C-Suite’s top information resource but also that members of the C-Suite search for information themselves.

So, back to the title of this post; if you have a strong professional online presence which is not being presented properly to search engines as a result of a content management system which is not fit for purpose then, effectively, you’re keeping the Ferrari in the garage.
