Should You Display The Price Of Your Legal Services On Your Law Firm Website?

This is a common question and one that can cause much confusion. Should you display the prices of your legal services on your website, or should you deliberately avoid doing this and only discuss the prices for your services once you speak on the telephone?

Would you like the answer immediately, or to be made to wait for it? Well seeing as you spoke so nicely to your computer screen then, here is is:

Do not display your legal services prices on your website!

Why? Displaying your prices simply allows your prospects to use your prices as a benchmark before moving on to call another law firm to find out their prices.

A major supplier of UK Legal conveyancing services discovered that when they put an instant price calculator on their website the enquiries literally dried up overnight. Needless to say they removed it, and instantly the telephone started ringing again!

Whilst it might have been a nice gadget, it failed to bring in the new clients and you must remember that the only purpose of your website is to find you leads and get those leads to the point that they are ready to engage with you.

If your prices are displayed and easy to find on your website, unless you are the cheapest firm in the UK (and that is not a strategy I advise you to follow when new national competitors are entering all of the time) you will lose potential clients.

There needs to be plenty of information on your website about each area of law that you are looking to attract work for, enough so that you prove your expertise and convince a visitor that you are the best firm to handle their transaction, but you do not want to give them everything.

The last part of receiving an instruction from a potential client must come from one on one interaction with them, either face to face or over the telephone. Present all of your prices on your website and you will be a very useful tool for your prospects in gauging other solicitors’ prices, but you will receive no instructions for your own law firm!

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.

Iain MacDonald

Excellent consultation very practical and straight forward planning, positively and optimistically reimagining a small law firms prospects.

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.

Emerson Scotland

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

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.
