How do I encourage potential clients to respond through my legal website copy?

The copy of your law firm website should be original, enticing, and littered with keywords that maximize search engine optimization. In addition, it is very important that the copy gives the potential client plenty of opportunities to respond. If the copy of your attorney website is well written, readers will be compelled to act and should be given access to easy means for doing so.

The following are examples of good opportunities for responding:

  • Ordering a free report
  • Signing up for the law firm newsletter
  • Downloading materials pertaining to the potential client’s particular legal issue
  • Requesting a consultation with the law firm

Every page on the website does not necessarily need an offer like the ones outlined above. However, every page should contribute to the story that ultimately leads the potential client to take one of those actions. Navigation on the law firm website should also be clear and easy, so that the action can be taken through just one or two clicks. Further, the attorney should continuously measure the success rate of each call to action to determine which are working best for attracting the ideal potential clients. It is also important to remember that privacy is valuable to most potential clients. Therefore, if your offer requires the potential client to enter an email address or other personal information, be sure to include a statement that verifies the law firm will respect privacy.
