At Windy City Law Designs, we hear from time from clients that call us or just lawyers that we meet in networking groups, Chamber events, charity dinners, etc that they don’t know if their law firm needs a website. There is a statistic that came out from Nielsen that should open their eyes to this new generation; 3 out of 4 people search online when they are looking for a lawyer. Let that sink in. 75% percent pick up a device and will find you from there.
Here are other reasons you should have a website for your law firm:
- Builds credibility and trust – Your site is like a large business card that has all the bells and whistles. Testimonials, content about practice areas, attorney profiles that offer your credentials and things you may do outside of work that can offer a connection. It is very important for customers to know you can help them before they call you.
- It works for you 24 hours/ 7 days a week – Name anything else that can do this? Everyday anybody can find you, read things, fill out a contact form and now you may have a new client, or at least one that now knows about you and is interested in your services.
- Provides information – When people get to your site they can read about the attorneys, make sure you provide the legal service they need, blogs and anything else they want like credentials and experience is cases. All this without having to pick up a phone or go to the office.
- Marketing – This is self explanatory after offering you that great tidbit that 75% of people start online to find an attorney. The key here is that you need to have a website that has been designed and created correctly and that includes having pages for each of your practice areas. Do not just list what you offer as you lose the credibility and informative sides of marketing.
Just having a website and doing Internet marketing for your law firm is not that simple because you may be wasting money not knowing what you are doing.
