Chicago Bound for NACBA’s Annual Convention

This week, members of the Amicus Creative team will be heading to the Windy City for the National Association of Bankruptcy Attorneys’ 23rd Annual Convention. This great event attracts over 1,000 legal professionals from across the country, providing attorneys with a slew of educational programs and connecting  them with vendors who offer valuable tools to market and manage their law practices. 

Amicus Creative is a member benefit partner of NACBA and the “Preferred Website Developer of NACBA Members”. Representatives will be at the conference to give attendees an inside look at our innovative online marketing suite for bankruptcy lawyers which includes attorney-written content, an integrated attorney blogging system, an interactive debt calculator and a comprehensive e-newsletter management system. NACBA Members can save as much as 47% off of the website development fee and receive discounted monthly maintenance and hosting fees. 

If plan to be at the show, we’d love to see you; you can find us at booth #82!

No SEO or SEM Requirements Here

Over the past few years, a number of web developers serving the legal industry have started to require that clients have an ongoing search marketing campaign or search engine optimization plan.  Essentially, if you don’t want to pay the price of these services, they don’t want your business. Some might argue that from a business perspective, this makes sense. After all, large SEM campaigns and SEO services can be incredibly lucrative.  At Amicus Creative, however, we refuse to take this approach; while SEO or SEM services are an option, they’re not a requirement. Here’s why:

The Key Elements of Animation

If you take a trip around the web, and visit the websites of companies, organizations and even government entities, you’ll find that many contain animation. Simply defined, animation is a simulation of movement created by a series of rotating photos or frames. For many years, web animation was largely synonymous with Flash (it was created using Adobe’s Flash Animation software). However, as we detailed in a blog several years ago, HTML5 animation is now the prevailing technology allowing animation to be experienced across all devices.

Animation can be a great way to showcase the different strengths of your law firm, highlight multiple practice areas, showcase big settlements that you’ve attained for clients or can be subtly integrated to add a more professional feel to the design. If you’re contemplating animation for your practice’s website, consider the following:

Under Construction Pages on Your Firm's Site

In your time on the web, you’ve undoubtedly stumbled across an “under construction” page. All too often, these place holders include a generic message to visitors to “check back soon” along with a photo of a construction cone or a stick figure in a hard hat. While some of these graphics may be cute, these templates don’t help the visitor learn a thing about your practice.

Should I put my firm’s videos on YouTube?

If you’re like the majority of Americans (78% to be exact), you likely watch a video on the web at least once per week. Video hosting and sharing sites like YouTube have made it easy to post videos and disseminate them to the masses, revolutionizing video marketing for all businesses, including law firms. We often hear from attorneys who have videos, or are looking to create them, and question whether YouTube is the right medium for their firm.

Did Your Site Get a D? The Dangers of Automated Website Graders

Every so often, we get a panicked call from one of the attorneys we work with. Our client has been contacted by an online marketing company who ran his site through their “industry leading website grader” and his site got a failing grade of a D. As you can imagine, our response is one of less concern and reassurance that the site is not in any way a failure. After all, we’ve been doing this for years and we know how to develop an effective website.  So what’s the deal with these automated website graders?

Google Warns About Mobile Usability Issues

Last week, webmasters around the globe received a notice from Google warning them of mobile usability issues. These warnings were emailed and posted in users’ Webmaster Tools accounts. The warnings included a full report of the non-mobile friendly pages on the site in question along with a list of the problematic components on the offending pages.  The reports highlighted issues like “small font size” and “touch elements too close”; while these site elements may not be problematic on the larger screen of a PC, they are not ideal for a visitor trying to access or navigate around a site on the smaller screen of a handheld device.
