Online marketing companies are abundant these days, as more businesses—law firms included—are grasping the importance of a strong online presence for branding, client generation, and client retention. Content that sells, an engaging website, a well-developed email campaign, organic search engine optimization, and social media management is what gets your law firm found, and keeps it found.
Online marketing companies, however, are not created equal, and some can actually sabotage your business development efforts.
While we don’t want to point fingers here, or drop names of bad marketing companies, we do want to point out what makes us better, and why using our services is the best marketing decision for your law firm.
But first, let’s look at the bad stuff.
Online Marketing Pitfalls
There are pitfalls when it comes to some attorney marketing companies, such as FindLaw (OK, we dropped one name).
These pitfalls can damage business development, both in the short and long-term, and include:
- Domain ownership
- Content ownership
- Contract issues/retainer fees
- Migration processes
- SEO penalties
- Cancellation penalties
