Online marketing for attorneys isn’t as simple as some SEO firms might make you think. They don’t understand that every detail of your law firm’s website is under scrutiny. Where most companies will see your website as little more than a tool for the search engines, online marketers experienced in law firm SEO know that your website also serves as evidence of your experience and professionalism.
Every day you file court papers and send letters on behalf of your firm, and each time you do that chances are someone on the receiving end of those actions will look you up online. They need to be able to find your website, and when they do, it needs to send the right message.
You’ve seen your fellow attorneys make all of the marketing missteps over the years. Sometimes it’s an ill-conceived print ad. Other times it’s a television advertisement that makes you cringe with secondhand embarrassment. The legal field requires a certain level of discretion in marketing, and that’s just as true on the internet.
The pitfalls here are different, and in some cases far more problematic. If you sign on with the wrong advertising agency and get an embarrassing ad, the danger is that people might see it. If you sign on with the wrong SEO firm and get a poorly planned online marketing strategy, the danger is that no one will see your law firm’s website at all.

From the start, Mack Babcock knew he wanted to attract a high-quality clientele. To reach that audience, he shunned traditional channels and focused on building a strong Internet presence. He told us, “Many law firms take the traditional approach, relying on TV and Yellow Pages ads. You’ll never see the Babcock Law Firm advertising on TV. I’ve seen how TV advertising can completely change the way a law firm is perceived. It attracts a certain type of case that ultimately erodes profitability.”
