Is Your Law Firm Where You Wanted It To Be In 2017?

You know where you are.

You know where you want to be.

Now, be honest with yourself, are you now, at the beginning of 2017, where you want to be?

If you can answer yes to that question, well done. You are amazing, awesome and an action taker. Keep up the good work my friend and let me know what ou did to make it all work so well.

If, however, you are more or less where you were at the beginning of 2016, you are probably wondering what happened and how are we here already. Another year in the same place.

“If you are not moving forwards, you are moving backwards.” Andre Agassi.

So what are you going to do next year to change this?

Einstein is famed as saying that doing the same things over and over again and expecting different results is insanity. So what are you going to do differently in 2017?

If you weren’t able to answer ‘yes’ to being exactly where you want your law firm to be at the moment, why aren’t you there yet?

I am pretty confident that I know what it is, based on my experience of working with hundreds of law firm owners now.

It is lack of a structure, a bespoke marketing action plan to follow and this coupled with being answerable to someone else to ensure that you do what you need and have agreed to do to get you where you want to be.

It is the final part that is so crucial. It is hard running your own business and answering only to yourself. In fact, I think it is actually almost impossible. We are hard wired to answer to others from birth. First, our parents, then our teachers, then our lecturers and employers (not to mention our partners…).

Whilst we might all assume that working for yourself will simply be amazing because we reap all of the benefits of our actions, the truth is somewhat different.

I recognised this some years ago.

When I was a practising solicitor I used to make very good money for my employers because I have always had a strong work ethic and some good ideas.

So when I started my own business I wondered why it wasn’t going as well as I would have liked as quickly as I wanted it to.

I analysed all of my best former performances and realised that they all had one thing in common; I was accountable to someone else for my actions.

It was then that I instantly hired someone to make me accountable to them, and since then I haven’t looked back.

I have someone outside of my business looking in. Someone to bounce my ideas off and tell me to drop the bad ones, and someone, most importantly, to make me do what I have committed to doing. Commitment to taking action is vital. Having someone hold you accountable to your commitments is the difference that makes the difference.

Can I do this for you to make a world of difference to your law firm in 2017?

From my group Fast Track Programme, meeting four times a year and working with other smart solicitors (and me) on your business, to my one on one consultancy and now my new Marketing4Solicitors Fast Track Programme, there is an opportunity to work with me whatever your budget is.

There is no minimum contract with any of my services; I only want you to work with me because you want to and because it is putting more into your bank account than it is taking out.

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.

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.

Michael Birch

Less than a year ago I asked Nick to help me grow our practice by making the telephone ring.

He’s certainly done that and much more.

The improvements are incredible and Nick has guided me through the many challenges of scaling up, not least the need for a client focused approach.

This has allowed me to start the next phase; organising the practice to ensure a better lifestyle balance for all of us, whilst we continue to grow.

Vinay Tanna

As a medium sized Law Firm we have been dealing with Nick for a good few years now – his assistance and support delivered in a friendly but professional way has been invaluable; added to this, coming from a legal background he has a firm understanding of what solicitors require.

At our initial meeting with Nick he advised on various marketing strategies including simple changes to our website that would enhance traffic to the site.

We are now working on a new marketing project and know, as always, we are in safe hands.

Tim Weir

Having implemented a raft of improvements to our website and marketing campaigns suggested in Nick’s excellent books, I decided to contact the man himself for a one-to-one discussion.

The thirty minutes spent with Nick on that video call provided me with more business improvement tools than I could’ve hoped for. Nick even took the time to give me some insights on client conversion particular to our area of practice.

Online reviews are often brimming with trite phrases and hyperbole, but I cannot find any other way of saying that my only regret is that I didn’t contact Samson Consulting sooner.
