Demonstrate your DUI knowledge to attract more clients

Educate yourself and your prospects

People charged with a DUI have an immediate need for help on what to do. They seek information after they are arrested, especially if it’s their first offense. You need to educate prospects on specific state and evolving laws, and you need to master the answers to the top questions they might ask, such as: What are the police allowed to do? What constitutes drunk driving in my state? What are the fines and consequences? What are my options to fight a DUI? Tap into What Everyone Should Know About DUIs, content briefs created for you to adapt and share with your prospects, positioning you as the most knowledgeable lawyer to handle their matter. This list will be updated on a regular basis to provide you with a steady stream of marketing content.

Search engine optimization (SEO) and search engine marketing (SEM), including pay-per-click (PPC), were in #2 and #3 positions.

Marketing tips & recommendations

Establish your online presence and credibility

Confirm for prospects that you are the right lawyer for them

Over 75% of consumers start their search for an attorney online, looking for information about you and your firm’s qualifications before they decide to retain your services. In fact they will often look up several attorneys. Having a professional website and online presence on directories where lawyers can be found becomes critical. If someone can’t find credible information about your firm, they’ll move along to the next attorney.
Creating your online profile

Engage prospects to increase conversion

Learn how to grab prospects' attention in just a few seconds

To convert phone calls or emails from website visitors into business for your firm, you need to make it as easy as possible for the reader to contact you. Encouraging interaction requires a thoughtful assessment of the myriad touchpoints for you online: email, contact forms, live chat, your social profiles, etc. and a corresponding strategy on how to respond. An example of this is Text-to-Chat, which gives mobile users the chance to ask questions via text message by clicking an ad extension. Google’s new tool engages users so that your business doesn’t miss a single opportunity.

Respond and nurture your prospects for client retention

Follow-up time is critical

Results from a recent Martindale-Nolo survey show that most successful attorneys contact the prospective client in less than 1 hour – preferably within 15 minutes. This is so important – many attorneys spend an inordinate amount of money generating DUI leads but fail to retain clients simply because they don’t contact prospects immediately and constantly. It’s a proven fact that consumers will look up and vet multiple attorneys before they choose one so the attorney quickest to respond will often land the client. Remember, too, that 90% of the leads you get will not turn into immediate clients. You need to follow up on leads, stay in touch and engage them before and even after you make contact. Leverage what you know about your target audience to provide ongoing information and tips on DUI through email, your website blog and social media. Read more
