Hosting a Seminar?

Firms often host free seminars as a way to share their expertise with the community and connect with prospective clients. While attorneys spend a great deal of time fining tuning their talking points and Power Point presentations, they very often overlook the steps needed following the event – the almighty follow-up. If you’re hosting an event, consider the following connection tools which will help to create a relationship on the day of the seminar and long after it’s over.

What Are Your Website Visitors Really Looking For?

With major advances in technology, marketers have more resources and data at their fingertips than ever before. Google Analytics is one of the great tools allowing webmasters to better understand visitor behavior and improve their websites to increase traffic and shift behavior patterns.

As we develop websites for attorneys, we are often asked what exactly visitors are looking for when coming to a legal site. While this differs greatly by practice area and even by geographic location, Analytics data has allowed us to identify a number of pages which almost always top the most visited list. If you are looking to strengthen your practice’s web presence, take time to carefully develop graphics and messaging for the following heavily visited pages on your site:

How Do I Encourage Website Visitors to Complete Forms?

Many law firms have a number of forms on their websites. These forms may be for new contact inquiries, to request a free white paper, register for an upcoming seminar or schedule an initial consultation.

Below, we’ve included some expert tips on maximizing the number of online submissions you receive each month:

Does your website feature online scheduling?

If you’re like most attorneys, you have a receptionist answering calls and support staff scheduling appointments for your office during business hours. But what happens after-hours, or over the course of a weekend, when a visitor is perusing your site and wants to schedule an appointment?

Over the past few years, the web has seen an influx in services like ZocDoc that allow for convenient scheduling for healthcare providers. These sites have grown in popularity because they allow web surfers to accomplish their goal– arrange a time to speak with a professional regardless of the time of day. Of course, this idea of self-scheduling is a bit more problematic for attorneys. Before an initial consultation is scheduled, you likely want to have a more in-depth understanding of the legal matter at hand so you can run a conflict check and make sure your office is the right fit. So what’s the best solution?

At Amicus Creative, we offer firms an online consultation request where site visitors can give a bit of background information and indicate the best days/times for an appointment (without actually scheduling one). The submitted information is immediately sent to the firm who can then run a conflict check, consult the most up-to-date calendar, and confirm the request date/time (or propose an alternative). This system is the perfect solution for firms who want to give site visitors the flexibility of scheduling an appointment after hours but retain ultimate control over their calendars.

Contact us today to learn more about this great feature.

Creating a Logo for Your Law Firm

A logo is an essential part of any company’s brand. Many times attorneys overlook the importance of this graphic, seeing it only as a fancy graphic on the firm’s business cards and letterhead when, in reality, a professional logo can be representative of a practice’s expertise, commitment to excellence or a reinforcement of their dedication to their clients. If your firm is working to develop a logo in the year ahead, consider the following pointers:
