Internet Lawyers Websites Made More Productive

Does your firm’s website have a form link for potential legal clients to send inquires through to your law firm? If so, you may be wasting your’s, or your assistant’s, time!

I’ll preface this by saying that many of the Internet legal client prospects you deal with in your career will likely be good, honest people. However, it seems the inquires generated through many legal web sites cause even the best, most honest, potential clients, to either intentionally, or unintentionally, waste your time.

As a professional in this industry, your time is the one thing you can’t afford to waste. If you run out of money, you can always make more. If you run out of time, all the money in the world won’t help you.

So there is a good argument to be made for the notion that time is much more valuable than money.

The impersonal nature of the Internet and ‘instant response’ culture promoted by it, can be detrimental to efficient lawyer time management.

If you have a popular legal web site, you will notice that a large percentage of the inquires requesting legal advice or opinion, can never be contacted by phone, or reply back to your emails after you have sent them their requested information.

Actually, with popular legal sites these time wasters can be a very serious problem. You’ll notice I said ‘can be’ in the preceding sentence. If you follow my suggestions below, the occurrence of this happening through your site will be drastically reduced or eliminated entirely.

Averaging over 100 unique visitors per day to my Houston legal directory alone, I know my suggestions really can benefit those of you who implement them. These are not theoretical ideas, but field tested and proven techniques.

#1. Show the current average hourly fees or case legal cost vs. settlement obtained for your clients.

This one step dramatically reduces the ‘dreamer/spendthrift’ type of email. It also enhances your credibility to win major settlements.

#2. All inquiry forms on your site should be set up so that if vital information is omitted, the form will remind the visitor when they try to submit it that the fields need to filled in for the form to work.

What information you want is up to you. Many times, personally, I do not require the phone number. This is because I feel that many may fear unwanted ‘sales’ calls. Plus, after all they are contacting me via the Internet vs. my toll-free phone number!

I do require the following basic information:

A. Full name

B. Address

C. Email address

D. Nature of case

Depending on the form, other information will be required. Keep in mind, these people know about you and are requesting your time. If they will NOT provide you their basic personal information, how serious can they really be?

Perhaps key to saving your valuable time, is my last suggestion:
Immediately upon receipt of an inquiry from your site, you or your assistant should reply with a request for some small bit of additional information. If you do not receive a timely reply to your inquiry, why invest any more time on this inquiry?

What should you ask for depends on the type of inquire. I ask for such information as:

When the situation occurred, full extent of damages/injury, and/or have they consulted any other lawyers?

Proper time management is crucial to any successful business. Management of your Internet inquires will increase your productivity!

Tips on What to Do With Traffic Coming to Your Internet Marketing Website

Now that you have plenty of traffic coming into your internet marketing website, you may be wondering what to do. Traffic is the key to being successful in internet marketing, but if you don’t do anything with the traffic you get, you won’t be successful. So, here are a few options to consider.

Convert Leads to Sales. One of the best options is to convert all those leads into sales. If you are selling a product on your website and you have a lot of traffic coming into the site, you have a good site. Now you just have to figure out how you can take the visitors and get them to purchase your product. If you get even a portion of your traffic to convert to customers, then you’ll definitely on your way to success.

Sell Affiliate Products. Another great strategy is to sell affiliate products. Of course if you decide to become an affiliate marketer, make sure that your site is relevant to the products or services that you are trying to sell for someone else. Usually these companies will pay you based on the amount of sales that come from people at your site. This is a great way to achieve success when you have a lot of traffic that comes to your website.

Charge a Membership Fee. Today there are many people who are definitely willing to pay a bit of money for access to great information that they know they can trust and rely on. If you build up a huge amount of traffic and people are constantly coming back to your site for more information, you may want to consider charging these people a membership fee to visit the site. Even if it is just a small fee each month, it can definitely add up over time if you have many visitors to your internet marketing website on a regular basis.

Sell Advertisements. While it is never good business to sell your leads to someone else, if you have a lot of traffic coming to your site on a regular basis, you may want to sell ads on your site. There are many large companies that are more than happy to pay you for ad space if you have a website that has a lot of traffic coming to it daily. You can sell your ad space for top dollar because of all the traffic your site generates.

Of course these are not the only ways that you can make the most of your website traffic. You can sell ebooks, send out newsletters, and even start networking among the visitors to your site. So, just don’t let all the traffic go by; make sure that you have a strategy in-place for your internet marketing business.

To your internet marketing success!
