Make It Easier For Your Legal Website Visitors To Find What They Are Looking For!

The next opportunity to instantly attract more clients is to make it really easy for your clients to find what they are looking for. Take a look at your website at the moment, particularly the navigation for your legal services, and ask yourself if it is logical to a client, or logical only to a solicitor within your practice.

The biggest problem when it comes to navigation is usually twofold:

  • The website navigation is not listed alphabetically but usually in the order of the importance of each service to the law firm (remember everything has to be all about your clients);
  • The navigation has grown so much since you created it that it makes no sense to the visitor.

I so frequently see navigation listed in the order of importance to the firm, so Personal Injury services might be first, then Employment, then Wills & Probate (more on that in the next email).

This means absolutely nothing to your client. The only logical order for a client to follow and to expect is alphabetical. We are all trained from a very early age that the alphabetical order is the usual order to use unless there is good reason not to do so.

The other point is to make sure that you have not created an enormous list of navigation items which are no longer relevant. A good website will always grow so it is understandable that the navigation can become unwieldy, so all you need to do is run your eye over your navigation to make sure this has not happened, and if it has, to fix it quickly.

Spending time fixing your navigation so that it allows your website visitor to get to exactly where they need to be as quickly as possible is a great use of your time.

Marketing For Solicitors

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

Mark Shepherd

I have worked with Nick for many years. He is an excellent consultant and helps law firms and businesses attract the clients they are looking for. Highly recommend.

Emerson Scotland

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

Claire Johnson

Nick is a fountain of knowledge, tried and tested personally. He has that rare gift of not making you feel daft for asking any question. After our consultation I felt far less like a rabbit in the headlights and far more empowered to climb the marketing mountain successfully.

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.
