Many of our clients come to us using several third party programs for their online marketing efforts; they have one provider for their e-newsletters, another for their blogs and yet another for their event management. This can be a major drain on firm resources as they’re paying a monthly fee for each and devoting a large chunk of time trying to master separate control panels. We’re proud to offer the most comprehensive suite of features for attorney websites. Here are just a few of the integrated tools that have helped countless attorneys cut overhead, and save time, and have helped to make us a leader of small firm websites.
Integrated Attorney Blogging
One of the most exciting developments in website marketing is the growth of web logs, or blogs. A law blog (commonly referred to as a "blawg") is an online journal with commentary on news and developments in all legal matters. A blog enhances your reputation as an authority in your area(s) of practice and improves search engine exposure by adding to the volume of relevant content on your website. Blog entries are not intended to be scholarly articles or sales pieces; instead, they let your voice and opinion be heard on topics which are most pressing to your practice and clients. As such, blogging allows you to communicate with your colleagues and clients on a more personal level and serves as an education based form of top of mind marketing for your firm.
The Amicus Creative Blogging System is seamlessly integrated into your website and includes state of the art features such as RSS Feeds, Email Subscriptions and optional moderated comments.
Seminar/Event Management System
If your firm conducts seminars or other events, Amicus Creative's Advanced Seminar Management System offers a variety of features to help you and your staff efficiently administer the event. This valuable tool allows you to post an unlimited number of seminars. The events may be posted by category allowing clients to easily find seminars that interest them. Visitors have the option to register for these events through your website. Once they have submitted their registration, your firm will receive email notification informing you of this new registration and the registered guest will also receive a confirmation email. By logging into your account, you can easily print registrant lists or export them to Microsoft Excel. To ensure that your website never gets outdated, the Site Manager will automatically remove seminars from your website once they have been held (though registration lists are always accessible via the Site Manager).
Amicus Creative offers cutting edge Click-to-Call technology that allows site visitors to contact your offices with the simple click of a button. Clients who subscribe to this feature report a noticeable increase in the volume of calls received from their website. We can set this feature to work with any phone number or phone line, including your main office line or your cell phone. There are no additional connection or per minute fees for this service.
Estate Tax Calculator
This interactive tool allows website visitors to calculate their estimated estate tax at the time of death. The calculator is uniquely programmed with the correct Federal Exemptions for upcoming years and takes into account the estimated year of death and appreciation of asset values. This Estate Tax Calculator is designed to encourage site visitors to implement estate tax planning.
To encourage website visitors to contact your firm, all Amicus Creative sites include forms through which interested parties my easily submit their contact information. When a visitor submits a request, your office will receive email notification and a back up of the submission is stored in the Site Manager. We also offer a special Appointment Request module through which clients can request a consultation with your firm.
Newsletter Management System
The Amicus Creative Newsletter Management System makes it a breeze to send professional newsletters and email notices to colleagues, clients and those who have subscribed on your website. Simply draft your newsletter, upload any attachment or photos and with just a click of your mouse, the email message will be sent to all of the subscribed recipients. This feature sends individual emails to each recipient and generates a status report for each mailing. Our graphic design team will even create a custom newsletter header which matches your website to ensure consistency among all of your online marketing efforts.
This advanced document storage and exchange system allows your firm to easily and securely archive clients’ documents and vital information for convenient retrieval by clients, advisors, healthcare providers and authorized heirs and administrators. Accounts can be accessed 24/7 directly through your firm’s website giving your clients peace of mind and ensuring that your firm remains at the forefront of providing premium client service.
