A law firm blog allows potential leads to access your information and see your expertise regardless of your office hours.
Blog = Clients leads
Nowadays potential clients find their lawyer’s website and information by searching online, making a lawyers website appear prominantly in search results is crucial. It’s the content on a website that turns it into an asset, so with 96% of clients searching for a lawyer via Google or Bing, how can you ensure those leads find your law firm’s website among all the others? By being a law firm that blogs regularly and posts useful and informative content.
It is imperative to have a consistent blog to benefit from the full potential of your law firm marketing. By consistently demonstrating your key services, specialist skills and successes and providing useful information, you will increase your chances of attracting leads and retaining clients.
Ensure your law firm website is the top result by including search words, words or phrases that people are searching for called ‘keywords’, in your blogs. For search engines to start showcasing your law firm’s website you need to write law firm blogs filled with keywords (primary and secondary keywords) relating to your services. The more your law firm blog features keywords when those leads start looking, the better your chances of appearing on the first page of search results.

Consistency creates a valuable law firm blog
The most important part of blogging, aside from writing relevant, infromative and interesting content that services your future and existing clientele, is to post a blog consistently. By blogging consistently you could see up to 67% returns for your efforts.
When marketing your law firm, the amount of blogging you do will depend on your resources and is an understandable afterthought for many lawyers. However, we can assure you that blogs for law firms do not require several posts a day or even several times a week. What matters most, over time, is the quality of what appears on your law firm blog and that it appears consistently.
Also, consider that you don’t have to use your blog posts in isolation. You can make your blog post work harder by repurposing content for e-newsletters and social media posts. Repurposing your law firm blogs expands the marketing of your law firm.
