Email Marketing For Solicitors: one of the four most effective marketing tactics.

Have you ever been to a restaurant and the menu has dozens of items for you to choose from for each course?

When I see this two things happen:

  1. I am completely overwhelmed by the huge choice; to such an extent that it actually puts me off eating at all; and
  2. I KNOW from a former life in catering that there is absolutely zero chance that anything they are going to serve me is freshly cooked. With that much choice it is all just being slammed in the nuclear heater and plopped on a plate.

I know that this form of overwhelm is often a huge problem for solicitors too when it comes to the best ways of generating new clients for their law firm.

“Should I try facebook advertising, everyone is talking about that?”
…Well, the truth is that everyone that sells facebook training as a business model is talking about it.

“I think the secret is video. If I have 100 videos I should never need to market my legal services again!”

“It must be twitter. So many people are talking about twitter, so it must be that.”

“I’ve heard that LinkedIn is now the only thing that solicitors need to do to sell their services, so I shall try that?”

The key point is that all four of the above types of marketing above should not even be considered before you have mastered the four marketing arteries of legal marketing.

The reason is simple; all of the above methods are all forms of ‘interruption marketing’.

What is interruption marketing? It is marketing that places your message in front of people who have not shown any interest in your legal services at that precise moment in time.

 Email Marketing For Solicitors: one of the four most effective marketing tactics.They are happily going about their working day, maybe looking at the pictures from their friend’s wedding at the weekend, updating their profile on LinkedIn or watching a video on Youtube when an advertisement from a law firm is the last thing that they are interested in.

If someone has shown no interest in legal services, what do you think will happen if an advertisement appears before them? Not a lot, in short, is the answer.

With interruption marketing your advertisement needs to be placed in front of hundreds or thousands of people to obtain even the slightest amount of interest.

However, the other type of marketing which includes the four marketing arteries that I mentioned above, are all ‘attraction based marketing’.

With these methods of marketing the person you are communicating with has actively gone looking for a legal services provider either for an immediate need or for one in the not too distant future.

Attraction marketing is cheaper, more effective, more cost effective and faster than interruption marketing.

One of the best forms of attraction based marketing is email marketing.

If you do not yet have an email marketing database, I am going to show you over the course of the next few articles how to set up your email marketing database (including a free step by step guide), how to grow your database when you speak with every prospect and how to communicate with it so that you have a steady and consistent flow of new client enquiries.

I want to leave no stone unturned for you because I know how powerful email marketing is for a law firm.

If you can’t wait and want to take action now, you can read more about the four marketing arteries in my book, “The Law Firm Growth Formula – How smart solicitors attract more of the right clients at the right price to grow their law firm quickly” by downloading the first four chapters completely free of charge.

I was explaining to a solicitor the other day why I wrote the book. He couldn’t see why I would give away all of my marketing secrets and methodology in a book when I could charge much more for the same information at my consultancy meetings.

He was right, of course, but there was a good reason for it.

I had simply had enough of solicitors coming to me after they had spent all of their money on the wrong types of marketing (like the ones I mention above) without any results.

The book was my answer to solving this problem. For under £15 you will know precisely which marketing methods work and which do not. No solicitor should waste money on the wrong marketing methods again.

You can read the first four chapters completely free of charge by entering your details below. I decided on four chapters because there is enough practical, actionable marketing advice for you to take action and see results:

The Law Firm Growth Formula Book For Solicitors

Imran Ali

I have been working with Nick Jervis for well over a year now.

I am a subscriber to the Marketing for Solicitors Service which has taught me integral techniques and tricks of the trade to grow my firm.

I can honestly say that Nick Jervis taught me a number of techniques that I would not ordinarily have thought of.

I feel that Nick Jervis is essential if you are serious about growing your business.

I would recommend his services to anyone who is serious about growing their firm.

I feel that Nick has totally transformed the way we now think and he is a genius in the world of marketing for law firms.

In my opinion, the consultancy offered by Nick Jervis will drive real value to your business.

Tim Bishop

As the owner of a small to medium-sized law firm, I have found that Samson Consulting’s Marketing4Solicitors monthly newsletter has proved absolutely invaluable throughout the last three years or so. Of all the marketing advice I’ve had over the years, this has proved by far the best value – bringing us tens of thousand of pounds of extra work every year.

One of the best tricks Nick Jervis [who owns Samson Consulting] uses, is not only to identify the kind of marketing actions a small or medium-sized business can take themselves, but he also explains why it works and most importantly then takes you through, step-by-step exactly what you need to do. As someone who is passionate about growing my business, I really look forward to receiving Nick’s excellent newsletter every month.

It’s worth pointing out that initially I was sceptical about his promises – so many marketing businesses promise the earth. But within a couple of months I was absolutely convinced he was right and I have been hooked ever since.

I recommend Nick Jervis and Samson Consulting without any hesitation whatsoever.

Emerson Scotland

Brilliant, insightful and a great discussion. Nick certainly knows his stuff and makes you feel at ease.

Chris Thomas

As usual with Nick he was super informative and helpful and gave me some very good tips for me to go forward with. He exudes positivity and makes dealing with him a pleasure. Also gave me a steer in helping two other contacts I have who may be able to use his services

Chris Rennie

Nick takes a no-nonsense approach, cuts the fluff and gets straight to the point – which is an approach that you see very little nowadays in the world of marketing where you have many gurus with complex approach that most probably never work. I look forward to working with Nick.
