If you're serious about building links to your law firm's website, you're going to need to sign up for some heavy-hitting attorney profiles.
Although you'll have to invest some money in some, others are entirely free of charge and even help improve your call volume.
Here is a list of some of the most important attorney profile sites to get listed on. We've even included links to a sample profile for each, so you can see what yours might look like:
- Thales Directory
- Courthouse Square
- My Attorney Home
- Law Father
- Law Dee Da
- eLocal Lawyers
- Attorney Directory DB
- Lawyer Central
- Alpha Legal
Remember, these are only 19 of the lawyer profile sites out there, but these seem to be the best in terms of authority.
Don't forget to keep up your blogging and social media marketing while adding these profiles. It's crucial to develop a schedule to help you manage all of your marketing-related tasks.
While it might seem silly or even annoying to construct these profiles and to maintain them, plenty of people go directly to these sites to find lawyers. Think of Avvo or HG as the Google for law firms. After all, some of your potential clients already do!
Consequently, it's vital to put your all into making these profiles pop and to really beef them up. Don't forget to add a link to your law firm's website. After all, that's one of the main reasons you began creating these profiles in the first place, right?
It’s pretty hard to be a lawyer and to manage your time as is. Adding online marketing onto it and social media management is a near impossibility.
While you're out defending your clients, be sure an intern is helping your staff with all of this. Another option is to hire a law firm SEO company to do it for you. Believe it or not, leaving this stuff in the hands of a professional usually works wonders.
As with all SEO campaigns though, it will take time. Google doesn’t see what you do overnight. Don’t lose heart if you put your firm in all of these sites and you still haven’t seen any upward movement in the search engine results pages. You might simply need to wait a month.
Here’s to your your firm growing beyond measure and reaching its business potential!
