How Benefit-Focused Is Your Website?

In developing and enhancing your law practice’s website, it’s always important to keep your ideal visitor in mind. Depending on your marketing goals, that visitor may be a prospective client, current client or referral source. As you develop your site, make a list of your visitors concerns, needs and questions. Then compile a list of the benefits that your firm offers that helps to address some of these issues. This list should not only be a description of how you’re different from competitors but how you can specifically speak to the emotions of your site visitor.

Converting Website Visitors into Leads

We often hear from attorneys who have hundreds of new visitors to their websites each month but only receive a handful of leads despite these strong traffic patterns. There may be many explanations for low conversion rates but a poorly executed call to action is almost always one of the culprits. Last week, we held a webinar for attorneys exploring the development and implementation of an effective call to action. 

If you are struggling to generate leads from your law firm’s website, we encourage you to watch the recorded session and learn more about this critical component of online marketing success.

Disclaimers on Your Firm’s Website

In developing websites for hundreds of law firms, we’re often asked what kinds of disclaimers should be included on a legal website. The answer to this question largely depends on the jurisdiction(s) of the firm and the local Rules of Professional Conduct. We recommend that all firms carefully comb through this information and all ethics opinions when developing a website to ensure compliance.  Some states require a label on all site pages indicating that the site is a form of “Attorney Advertising.” Others are less restrictive mandating that disclaimers may only be needed on certain pages where the information presented may confuse visitors.  

While we can’t get into each jurisdiction’s guidelines in a single post, generally speaking, there are several places on a legal website where your firm should consider adding a disclaimer:

Should you be worried about your law firm’s website?

Exact Match Domains: How important is one for your SEO strategy?

The law firms we work with often get notices from domain vendors offering to sell them highly coveted domain names for a small fortune. These attorneys generally call us to ask if the desirable domain name, which is supposed to be top-notch for SEO, is worth the investment. For many years, having a domain name that was an exact match to the search query essentially guaranteed top placement in the search engine result pages (SERPs). With this great SEO benefit, exact match domain for highly competitive searches like “Chicago Bankruptcy Lawyer” (chicagobankruptcylawyer.com) could easily be worth tens of thousands of dollars.

Event Management on Your Website

It’s not at all uncommon to see law firms include a list of upcoming events on their websites. After all, it’s a great way to showcase your expertise, demonstrate an active presence in the community and inform clients and colleagues about these events so they can attend or spread the word. Unfortunately, far too many attorneys let this powerful resource fall to the wayside—allowing it to become outdated, stagnant or fail to implement tools which will make the listing of events a true resource for site visitors. If your law firm is considering future events and making these a part of your website, be sure to utilize an integrated event management system which features the following tools:
