Small Law Firms find it very difficult to compete in the legal industry and can't afford legal marketing companies to do the work for them. In this presentation, we map out the basic law firm marketing strategies that can help every small law firm compete on an even field.
The legal industry is over saturated and
filed with competitors at every corner.
As a consequence, some small law
firms and solo lawyers are finding it
more and more difficult to compete in
the legal industry and many lawyers
struggle to pay the rent at home and not
just the office.
The small firms can't compete with the
large law firms and can't afford to hire
law firm marketing companies to do
the work for them

Build quality links to your site to get authority
and online exposure.
Quality of the link is very important factor.
Bad links can destroy your online marketing
strategies while great links will reward you

marketing companies for link building.

You have to be compelling with your video.
Stop being a cardboard cut out and appeal
to those people looking for help by tapping
on their emotion. That's how your video will
stand out above the crowd.
For example, there is a female criminal
lawyer whose short captivating videos
capture the emotion and you just can't help
but watch her. Imagine then, if I was
someone in need of help because of a
criminal charge, she would be the most likely
candidate that I would call.
GO GREEN AND EVERGREEN
Evergreen content is content that will last and rank for a long period of time. The content is structured in
such a way, that it attracts other sites linking to it because it is informative, well structured and offers great
information that is in demand.
For example a lawyer can publish content regarding how an individual can file a law suit against his/her
employer for wrongful termination. Other examples of evergreen content may include question and answer
content for questions raised by people quite frequently, video based content on different court proceedings
and procedures involved in criminal and civil cases.
However, the main motivating factor would be to attract consumers and customers to visit the source of the
content and hence drive traffic to the original author's page and make a connection when a need for the
service arises. Evergreen content is definitely the way to go with your legal services and is unlikely to
change for the future.
Law firms and lawyers keting should consider local targeting to
become an authority in their local area. It is necessary to make sure
that it is targeting the right demographic locally. Failure to do so
result in wastage of efforts.
Law firms that are smaller in size and have recently started their firm
should target their internet marketing efforts at the local (city) level
rather than a macro level (state, country and internationally).
Getting proper business citations is one step closer to getting you
found locally by optimizing your presence in locally targeted law firm
directories and business listing sites as well as optimizing your
business location on Google maps.
WHAT IS A LOCAL CITATION?
A local citation is any online mention of the name,
address, and phone number for a local business.
Citations can occur on local business directories, on
websites and apps, and on social platforms.
Citations help Internet users to discover local
businesses and can also impact local search engine
