THE One Silver Bullet For Your Law Firm Marketing

Everyone wants the one silver bullet that will magically and overnight transform their law firm marketing and ensure a steady and growing number of clients approach them for assistance. I am often asked “What one thing can I do to instantly generate new clients?” Well I am going to share it with you in this article. Whether your recognise it and apply it is up to you, but I am sharing the secret of the ‘One Silver Bullet’ with you, the rest is up to you.

On one of my recent meetings with a good consultancy client, I spent some time with their senior staff discussing marketing in small groups. Each of those groups asked me to give them the “Silver Bullet” that would work easily and quickly for them. What one thing could they do to generate new client instructions? What’s more, how could they do it with no budget and no spare time for this “marketing thing” that they were really not interested in?

I love this question. The funniest part is that it makes a huge assumption that there is just “one thing”, and not only that, but it should be really easy and cost nothing to implement. Well part of the secret to successful law firm marketing is to realise the truth that there is not just one thing that could transform your firm; there are many different things that you can and should be doing. The second part, and perhaps the most important point, is that these will be different things for different firms, depending on the type of legal services offered, the clients being targeted, the budget available, and how quickly results are needed (are we talking a steady campaign or more of a “If we don’t get the clients through the door in the next 14 days we will run out of cash”).

I have a friend in business who from time to time struggles with the challenges that we all face as small business owners. I remind him of the secret to long term success: “If it was really easy, they would all be doing it”. If it was simple to have a hugely successful and profitable business, all of your competitors would be doing it. If you could just do “One Thing” to market your law firm and have all the clients that you will ever want or need, your competitors would do the same as you.

Think about your own professional services; if it was really easy for people to do their own conveyancing, clients would not need you. If I could negotiate my own business contracts I would not employ a solicitor. You have spent years honing your legal skills so that you know the pitfalls and problems that might arise during a legal transaction, and more importantly you know your way around them.

Marketing is no different; it is a skill that takes time to master and learn. Whilst there are things you can do instantly to generate new instructions, if you want long term success and stability the secret is to try new marketing initiatives relentlessly, and above all else, be consistent in your marketing. Trying Pay Per Click advertising this month, then Search Engine Marketing next month followed by a one off advertisement the month after will not work. Trying one method of marketing and then sticking with it, and permanently optimising it’s performance will lead to success. You can try other methods simultaneously, but you must stick with them all. If your time is limited, one at a time is the best way to proceed.

Now you know what the ‘One Silver Bullet’ is for your law firm marketing, what are you going to do with it?

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.

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.
