Solicitors – It’s nearly Christmas, so give up?

I have had so many conversations recently with solicitors explaining to me that there is no point doing anything marketing wise at the moment because it is close to Christmas and the world is on go slow.Solicitors - It’s nearly Christmas, so give up?

This is totally the wrong way to think about it.


Because this is exactly what the rest of the legal world is saying, so you should completely do the opposite, which is one of my favourite sayings:

“If everyone else is doing it, I should probably be doing something completely different!” 

Now is the time to start that Google Ads campaign so that by the time 2019 starts you already have some data to work from to really ramp things up and win a lot of new client instructions.

Now is the time to plan your referral campaign (a topic of this month’s double issue of Marketing4Solicitors – jump on the waiting list if you would like to know when it is going to print:

Now is the time to start your email marketing software and upload your database so that you can send out the first emails early in January to make the most of the legal seasonal trends.

Now is not the time to sit on your laurels.

Now is the time to make plans and take early action so that you start 2019 at a canter whilst the rest of the legal world doesn’t really get going until February at the earliest.

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.

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.

Chris Carter

Approachable, friendly and fun to deal with he will always make sure you are travelling in the right direction and on the road to success.

Can’t recommend enough!

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

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.
