<![CDATA[How to Make the Most of Testimonials on a Law Firm Website]]>

Testimonials are the glowingly positive statements people share with you about your law firm. And while testimonials are similar to reviews, they do differ because they don’t come through an independent website, like Yelp. Instead, testimonials are typically collected by you to be used on your website and in your marketing materials. 

(Confused? Find out more about the difference between testimonials and reviews.)

Testimonials are a huge deal for law firm websites because they carry so much power to impress, assure, and convert potential clients and referral sources. They give people that are new to your brand a taste of the positive experiences others have had, and they can even create a subtle sense of “missing out” on something that so many other people are willing to say is great. 

When you use testimonials well, you motivate more people to click, call, or dig deeper into what you have to offer. And you show them, in a concrete way, what you do for your clients and why you’re a good choice. 

However, while hearing and reading testimonials about your law firm is great, you have to actually USE your testimonials in your law firm’s website design to make sure they can do all the above and more for you. 

So, if you’re new to testimonials, or if you just want to use your testimonials better, here are some quick and easy ways to do just that.  

Love these tips? Check out 7 Small Law Firm Website Design Details That Make a Huge Difference for even more quick ways to make your law firm website rock. 

1. Get Your Testimonials Ready for Your Law Firm Website

Raw text and unedited videos aren’t always a great look, even if the testimonials hidden under the mess are superb. So, before you start flexing your testimonials on your law firm’s website, you have to get them ready to shine for you. 

First, make sure you ask for permission to use the testimonial, especially if you make any small edits to the grammar or phrasing. Format your testimonials, so they look great on the page, and add a name, location, and photo if possible. Do what you can, within sensible and professional limits, to show that these testimonials are from real people and businesses that are offering sincere praise. 

If your website and software include the functionality, make your testimonials modular! In DSS, for example, you can build your testimonials into panels and sidebar widgets that can be used over and over again. Even better, you can tag your testimonials by practice area, making it super easy to find and use a relevant testimonial when you need one. 

2. Create a Testimonials Page

Once you have collected your testimonials, feature them on a dedicated “Testimonials” page on your website. Link to it from your homepage, and make it easy to navigate to from all the most popular and important pages on your website. Remember that reviews and testimonials are often the first things people look for when considering your law firm or visiting your website for the first time. 

So, make sure they’re there and look great! 

It is critical that those testimonials are clearly available, easy to get to, and collected in a way that makes sense and is easy to read.  

3. Place Testimonials Strategically

Even if you have a dedicated testimonials page that you link to from your homepage, you should still use a few testimonials directly on your homepage. That way, those testimonials are working for you right from the get-go. 

And, since lots of people DON’T come in through your homepage, make sure you place testimonials on all your most popular landing pages and posts. It doesn’t have to be hard! If your website is built on DSS, for example, you can easily set testimonials to automatically show on the sidebar or at the bottom of just about any page. Ultimately, you want your testimonials peppered throughout your website, so they’re always beaming that sense of trust and authority!

However, there is a little more strategy that you can apply to how you place your testimonials on your law firm website. For example, the right testimonial appearing near a contact form or offer can be a powerful motivator for potential clients. So, choose your best testimonials and use them at all the points where trust really matters. Any time you ask your reader or viewer to call you, request an offer, send an email, fill out a contact form, or act on some other call to action, there should be a testimonial nearby that shows you are worthy of that trust. 

4. Incorporate Testimonials Naturally in Your Law Firm Website Content 

Along with the above strategic placement, don’t forget to use testimonials in the text of your website. Naturally weaving a few testimonials into your landing page content, blogs, FAQs, and articles can add weight to what you have to say and convince readers that you’re the person to talk to about it. Testimonials can help illustrate a point, show that you get results, and lend more credence to your expertise. 

Make sure that the testimonials you choose are relevant to the page and fit with the content. If a testimonial seems disjointed, irrelevant, or too sales-y, you could diminish trust instead of increasing it! 

Ready for a Law Firm Website Design That Will Make Your Testimonials Glow?

The FWM design team has worked with lawyers and law firms for decades to build websites that are modern, functional, and ready to do what you need them to do. If you’re having trouble making changes to your website, attracting new clients online, or converting potential clients, then we know from experience that you’re not really getting what your law firm needs out of your website. 

Looking for the freedom to use testimonials and other elements better on your law firm website? Give us a call at 888.886.0939, or schedule a design consultation with our team to discuss the possibilities.

When your family has lived and owned businesses in a city since 1885, your family name becomes well-known. If you decide to continue the family tradition, that history follows you around town.

The Frees family is a staple in Phoenixville, Pennsylvania; generations have lived and worked there. Robb Frees, owner of Frees Insurance, said, “We understand the fragility of relationships, why they need to be maintained, and why you need to be honest.” Robb and his brother, Dave, an attorney, talked to Tom about how they’ve been doing business together since they were kids and how they were raised to understand what people around them want and need.

Dave said he was introduced in his shop class by the teacher saying, “If a Frees can make a buck, they’ll probably sell you something.” How have you used history and relationships to cement your standing in your community? Find out how Dave and Robb’s involvement has led to years of community support.

The pandemic brought business to a standstill for a lot of doctors. Many shifted to telemedicine visits and looked for other ways to bring in revenue.

Email marketing is a key way to stay in touch with your patients, offer your services, and keep them updated on what’s going on in your office. Dr. Marybeth Crane, a Texas podiatrist and long-time FWM client, said, “Resiliency is what gets you through these times because this too shall pass.” Marybeth and Tom talked about how her practice used an email offer to their client list to make up for lost office visit income and how each doctor reached out personally via email to explain all the safety measures they put into place when the office reopened.

Marybeth also said, “If you don’t have a great website, you’re dead in the virtual world.” What marketing strategies do you use to stay top of mind? Find out how Marybeth’s ability to adapt and try new things has led to many years of marketing success.

<![CDATA[Making Ghost Calls Work for You and The Most Important Tool]]>“Great Marketing Is Not Enough if Your Prospects Don’t Convert”

Making Ghost Calls Work for You

By now you know it’s sort of a mantra with me: Inspect What You Expect鈩? This may sound ominous, but it’s not when you do it right. And getting it right is pretty simple…

Relationship Is Key

The educational portion of your business – the ongoing coaching and training you’re providing for your staff – must be based on relationships, communications, and sales. How you treat your internal customers (your team) is how your team will treat your external customers.

So, when you tell your team that you’ll be doing mystery calling, or ghost calls as we call them in our phone sales program, they won’t like it. Initially, they’ll be concerned, afraid, threatened or feel like you don’t trust them and that you want to catch them doing something wrong so you can get rid of them or lecture them. (Check the laws in your state regarding recording calls.)

Any of the above reactions are normal, and you should expect them. Don’t back off or get nervous; remember, this is your business, and you make the decisions. You’ve got to monitor your staff daily. The telephone is one of the most important sales and marketing tools in your business for prospects, clients, and referrals. Without the phone and good staff, in that order, you’ve got nothing! No matter how good you are, you’re done.

Ease into this process. Explain to your staff that ghost calling is a positive program to help them become sharper than ever, to do even better than they already are, to enhance what they’re already doing right. Notice what I just said: to enhance what they’re already doing right. That’s a better message than “We want to fix what you’re doing wrong” or “We want to correct your mistakes.”

Another way to ease into ghost calls to your own business is to have your staff ghost call your competitors. Intake specialist Anita found when she called a competing firm that empathy was totally lacking. This showed her how important it is to express concern for callers. Making ghost calls can help your team members prepare to receive their own ghost calls, all in the spirit of improving themselves.

Your Most Important Tool

We’re Talking About the “S” Word

Folks that aren’t hired to be hardcore sales closers hate scripts. They hate the “S” word because they don’t want to be phony, to lie or to sound like a robot with no feelings or empathy.

You don’t have to read the script word for word, but there are some very important words and sentences on your script for a reason. A script is a guide, a cheat sheet, a road map to guide you accurately to the next step while staying focused on what the sole purpose is: to close the deal.

Here’s exactly what we teach our students to do when it’s time to learn a new script. In fact, I do this myself. I use scripts all the time, but I don’t sound scripted.

  1. Get a recorder and read your script into your recorder three different times. Pick the best one, and then delete the others.
  2. Listen to the recording every single day a minimum of three times per day for 10 consecutive days. That’s while you fall asleep, while you’re on the treadmill, while you’re driving in your car.
  3. After 10 days, test yourself. If your intake calls are recorded, listen to them. Did you leap ahead? If you don’t have recordings, have one of your teammates do a difficult role-play with you. Also, record the role-play and listen to it over and over again.
     

Andrea is a paralegal, and she reported in her recent What I Learned (WIL): “Chris’s explanation helped me understand what we can achieve when we follow the script.”

Real sales athletes never stop role-playing or listening to their recordings or practicing new scripts. They do it daily to stay sharp, more often when they’re trying to learn a new script quickly. Try this, and you’ll lose your fear of the “S” word!

Feel free to email Chris Mullins, The Phone Sales Doctor for Intake Specialists Worldwide with any questions at: phonesuccessdoctor@gmail.com Office: 603-249-5878. Chris would also love to review some of your real call recordings.

There’s something wrong with most law firm websites. And, although it’s something that’s obvious to visitors and potential clients, it’s something that can be a little tough for lawyers to spot for themselves. On the surface, your law firm’s website design may be attractive and modern. You may think that it showcases all the best parts of you and your business. However, you might be missing the one important thing that really divides the best websites from the less-than-stellar ones. 

What is that “special something” I’m talking about? 

If you look around, you’ll see that most law firm websites out there are designed for lawyers’ egos, not for the consumer that’s being served. You’ll see the same ego-based designs over and over, with the same formula and same competition over who can shout the loudest about the highest-dollar case results. 

It’s a huge mistake! And it really misses the whole point of what your website needs to do for your law firm.  

Want to get granular about the design of your website? Learn more about the small details that go into a successful law firm website design.

The Big Picture: What Your Law Firm’s Website Needs to Do

Your website must make a connection with the clients and referral sources you want to attract. Instead of focusing on you and your accomplishments, it should focus on:

  • Answering your perfect clients’ questions and offering solutions
  • Empathizing with and speaking to your perfect clients’ pain 
  • Building trust with new visitors and showing the success you have given to other clients

That’s how you build online relationships that turn into real-life cases and clients!

Remember this: people buy from people they like. So, make your website less about your greatness and more about how you’ve used your expertise to resolve problems for real people. 

By the way, don’t be afraid to be authentic and really show your potential clients who you are and why you do what you do. You don’t want a website that gives you a generic personality, just like all the other guys. Instead, your law firm’s website should facilitate real connections with the clients, contacts, and referral sources that matter the most to your business.  

The Small Details: What Your Law Firm Website’s Design Needs to Do

To accomplish the big picture, you need to look into some of the smaller details of your design. You have to think about what your potential clients are looking for when they visit you, and you need to meet those needs at every turn. You want all those little touches that show you care about their experience.

This kind of care can be built into your law firm’s website design in a number of ways, including:

  • Contact information. Don’t make it hard for people to reach out to you. Your firm name, phone number, address, and other contact information should be right in front of your potential clients when they need it. 
  • Device responsiveness. All kinds of businesses make this mistake with their websites. If your website can’t deliver a great experience on the most common devices and browsers, then it is designed to fail. This is something that WordPress templates are particularly bad about!
  • Clear and intuitive navigation. If people can’t figure out how to get to the answers they want and need, they won’t spend a lot of time digging for it—they’ll move on to a competitor’s site!  
  • Personality. Like I said above, you need to be authentic, not generic. Ditch the “lawyer tropes” you see in everyone else’s website designs—the gavel image, the Scales of Justice image, the photo in front of the bookshelf, tough poses with arms crossed, etc. Instead, use your photos, videos, and even website colors to tell your story and welcome potential clients. And don’t forget to use your bio and office pages to build trust and show people what to expect if they hire you! 

Of course, there is a lot more that goes into it, but that should give you a taste of the kinds of details that build up to a great user experience. It all adds up to a law firm website that is designed to SUCCEED.

Have you been wondering how to measure the success of your website? Are you ready to start fresh with a new design? Join my team for a website design consultation, or give us a call at 888.886.0939 with your questions.

Podcast title card with Jamie Kelly on the left and Tom Foster on the right.

This time, however, they’re letting us know what they’ll be looking for and when the changes will go into effect.
