Legal Internet Marketing Specialist Offers Free Consultations…plus 10% Off…
Any legal professional who performs legal research or case law research has used LexisNexis and WestLaw in college, law school, and their law practice. Even when VAP Services is conducting legal marketing research for solo attorneys and law firms, LexisNexis is utilized… A recent study from Lexis revealed more than half of people who hired a new lawyer in the past 12 months used the Internet. Some Internet marketing attorney professionals will argue that number is higher or lower, but by 2015 that number will be much closer to 90%. The problem is not the clients, but the legal marketing techniques used are simply not reaching them appropriately.
VAP Services announced today their offering free consultations with attorneys to help improve the number of clients obtained from Internet marketing. This will include a full review of the attorney website, legal blog, lawyer profile, and any other Internet related content. VAP Services will analyze each page and construct an outline of the best practices necessary to amp up the attorney online presence. Each attorney taking advantage of this special promotion will also receive 10% off all services.
VAP Services announced to solo attorneys and law firms nationwide, a free consultation to discuss their Internet marketing strategy; plus 10% all law firm Internet services. Details of the specific attorney IT services offered are posted at VAP Services.
The Lexis study confirms what we knew from personal experience. Personal injury attorneys who advertise only on television or on paper are missing a huge potential market for their services. Online marketing for cases involving mass torts, medical malpractice and defective drugs can reach millions on the Internet at a much faster rate if done correctly.
Over the last seven years VAP Services and its founder, Heather Nelson has worked with attorneys in the U.S., assisting them with achieving their goals with Internet Marketing. “Every year technology goes farther and farther away from what it was the previous year. Lawyers and even their legal staff don’t have time to catch up. Which is why our company steps in and takes over their ‘virtual law firm’ so to speak. While a good lawyer can meet people and market himself in person, at the same time the Internet can also market legal services 24 hours/7 days a week for only a small fee.”
Social media for law firms is one of the hottest areas of online legal marketing currently in which there are opportunities, but there are also risks of wasting time and money, plus the risk of running afoul of state bar association rules governing the professional conduct of attorneys. Hiring a professional service is key to not breaking any of those rules.
VAP Services only staffs legal professionals who understand and respect the ABA Rules.
Although there are both financial and ethical risks to social media for law firm marketing, there is also the possibility of a great reward if the social media campaign makes sense, is well-planned and is well-executed. It’s not the type of responsibility that can be left to the young intern answering the phones who spends all her time on Facebook and Twitter.
Heather is currently inviting interested attorneys to connect with her via Linkedin, her Attorney Marketing Website or Law Firm Marketing blog on legal marketing, law firm technology, and paralegal services.
