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

Emerson Scotland

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

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.

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.

Chris Carter

Nick has for a long time now been the go to Legal Marketing Expert offering game changing advice in a no-nonsense way.

As well as knowing what works, he will also make sure you don’t waste valuable time on initiatives that aren’t destined to chime.

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!

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.
