Some Law Firm KPI’s (Key Performance Indicators)

Measure Your Law Firm Goals and KPIs More Closely

If you have decided that now might be a good time to start measuring some Law Firm KPIs to ensure that your firm makes progress more quickly with all of your marketing efforts, what would be a good idea to start to measure?

The purpose of this article is to provide you with some ideas for Key Performance Indicators (KPI’s) that would be good for you to measure. However, it is first worth considering what makes a good KPI.

In my opinion, a good KPI should be:

  • S – specific. They should be specific and easy to understand.
  • M – measurable. As with all targets, there is ‘No Treasure Without Measure’ so you must be able to measure your KPI’s.
  • A – achievable/attainable. You need to make the goals within your KPI’s achievable to ensure you remain focused on achieving them and do not give up too soon. You can always adjust them upwards again once you reach the first target.
  • R – realistic. You have to be able to reach your target.
  • T – timebound. When are you going to be able to hit the target?

Once you have considered this, here are some KPI’s you should be measuring (or at least considering measuring) which will help to make your law firm more successful:

  • New files opened (often costs are measured but not new files opened each month, yet if you measure this one the other one tends to follow).
  • Costs.
  • Quotations/estimates provided.
  • Website traffic overall.
  • Website traffic by department.
  • Pay Per Click Advertising:
    • Overall spend;
    • Average cost per click;
    • Total clicks;
    • Average Click Through Rate;
    • Leads generated; and
    • Average cost per lead
  • Articles written and added to website.
  • Articles submitted to local papers.
  • Videos added to website.
  • New prospects added to email marketing database.
  • Email newsletters sent to client database.
  • Blogs written.
  • Referrals received.
  • Potential new referrers of business contacted.
  • Existing referrers of business thanked/looked after.

It is so important that you use KPI’s. If you are not currently doing so I would urge you to revisit this subject and start using them and monitoring them on a weekly basis. You might be staggered by the results this focus will achieve for you!

Law Firm Marketing

Case Study

A straightforward approach with a genuine expertise, providing you with a proven plan of exactly what you need to do to grow your firm.

I first stumbled across Nick when searching on Amazon for help growing a firm in the legal sector.

Straight away I was struck by his no-nonsense approach, so after checking out a preview of his book, I bought it on Kindle and started devouring it straight away.

What was immediately apparent was that Nick really does know what he’s talking about, which was hugely refreshing in an industry with plenty of bluffers and chancers.

I found the fact that Nick has actually been there and done it in the legal world very compelling indeed, and after finishing the book, I knew there was plenty he still had to teach me.

I booked a free call, which contained plenty of value, but what became clear is that if I was really going to get Nick’s personalised help to grow my firm, I needed to do it properly, so after speaking to a couple of Nick’s clients to reassure myself I was making the right decision, I took the plunge, and booked the Steady Stream of New Clients meeting.

And I’m so glad I did.

From the moment my wife Rachael and I arrived, Nick put us at complete ease and we quickly built up a strong rapport, and thanks to the pre-meeting preparation put in by all parties, we were able to wring a huge amount of value out of it, because most of the fact-finding had already been completed before the meeting began.

Consequently, the meeting was chockfull of useful, actionable information, and most importantly, that information was grounded on what actually works in the real world – no theory in sight.

When we left Bristol, we were hugely energised and excited; but more than that, we also had clarity, and three days later, things were even clearer, thanks to the report Nick prepared for us detailing exactly what marketing we needed to be doing AND how to make sure that that marketing was actually implemented.

Having used a consultant in the past, my biggest fear was that there’d be a lot of talking around the issues, and a whole lot more questions than answers, but that simply isn’t how Nick works.

Instead, he calls a spade a spade, and fuses that straightforward approach with a genuine expertise, providing you with a proven plan of exactly what you need to do to grow your firm.

If you’re considering booking one of Nick’s Steady Stream of New Clients meetings, I would say, unhesitatingly, that you need to go for it”
