Website Design For Law Firms – Common Mistakes Are Made…

If you are in the process of obtaining a new website for your practice please don’t finalise your decision before you speak with me. I will explain more now but for the more cynical let me just advise you that the call is free of charge and I am not trying to sell you a website as I do not touch them anymore.

Let me explain why.

I have spoken with a lot of really good law firms recently. The most frustrating part for me is that in nearly every case they have recently (within the last 12 months) obtained a brand new website design. The cost has ranged from £500 to £10,000, but in nearly every case the result has been exactly the same; a complete and utter waste of money!


The main reasons are nearly always the same:

  • Difficult for the client to navigate the website
  • No consistent calls to action
  • Poor design layout
  • No multiple calls to action (method for the prospects to get in touch)
  • Not built with the client or Google in mind (usually just built to please the website designer – and they generally (nearly always), know absolutely nothing about marketing)

In each of these examples if only the solicitor had picked up the telephone to me before pressing the ‘Go’ button, I could have saved him or her a huge amount of money and ensured that they obtained a good website which will produce leads for them in the future.

Case Study

From biggest fee earner to no fee earning whilst doubling turnover

I’d been looking for somebody to help me with marketing for a while, and I came across Nick on Google.

That was three years ago, and in that time it’s fair to say that he’s had a massive impact on my business, and my life as a result.

In the early days, my goal was simple and specific: increase the turnover of the business so that I could take more money out of the business.

I had an amount in mind, and I expected it to take years to get there, but when I achieved it in just six months, it began to dawn on me that this guy really knew what he was talking about.

As a result of that early success, and with Nick’s help, I realised that my expectations were too low, and what I could actually achieve, with the right thinking and guidance, was far beyond what I’d ever imagined.

What Nick saw – and what he made me see – was that my business had fantastic potential, but to realise that potential, things needed to change.

Even before Nick got involved, we were getting a decent volume of leads, but it was what was happening to the leads that was the problem.

We weren’t tracking them, there was no process in place and to top it all off, we didn’t have a clear pricing structure, which meant that we were nowhere near as profitable as we could be.

And that’s where Nick came into his own. He built us a bespoke lead generation and sales process, and the results were staggering.

We pretty much doubled our turnover, allowing me to build a four-person sales and marketing team that gets us more leads and more sales.

Of course, Nick’s Google Adwords expertise has been a key part of our growth, and today it’s a hugely profitable marketing pillar for us.

But regardless of the medias or mechanisms we’ve used to grow over the last three years, it’s been Nick’s rock solid marketing plan that underpins it all.

He’s stopped me trying this and that, and got me to focus on the things that’ll have the biggest impact on the business.

And I think there’s a lot more to come – we still haven’t implemented everything that Nick has given us to do, and when we do, I reckon we’ve got around another £250,000 of revenue per year to add to our figures.

And it’s not just the business that’s seen a transformation – it’s been a personal transformation too.

When Nick first got involved, I was the biggest fee earner, and consequently I was reluctant to stop getting involved in cases.

Nick eventually made me see that if I was serious about growing this business, that needed to change and as time has gone on I’ve taken on less and less work – now I don’t do any of it.

And I only wish I’d done it earlier, because the result has been me having more time to build the business, and spending time with the people that are important to me.

Not only that, but the business is stronger, because it’s much less dependent on me.

Nick was right about that one, as he has been about pretty much everything else – it pains me to say it, but it’s true!
