5 easy ways to maximize your presence on Lawdingo
By Nikhil Nirmel
At Lawdingo, we want to make sure that you get your moneys worth. Once you sign up for Lawdingo, there are several ways to take advantage of your membership.
1) Write a detailed bio that does more than just list out your credentials
- Be sure to include some personality in your profile
-Clients hire lawyers because they like them and feel as though they can trust them
2) Use a professional headshot
-Anything you put on the web is a reflection of yourself
-You would wear a suit to a client meeting which means you should wear a suit in profile picture
3) Respond to inquires in a timely manner
- It is important that you try to call or email a response to people that reach out to you
- Lawdingo recommends that you call people back within the hour that they submit the inquiry
- If you are unable to speak with them over the phone, it is best to send them an email (even if it is an automated email) to let them know that you received their inquiry and that you will be reaching out to them soon
-If you wait too long to respond, you risk losing the lead to another attorney who is easier to reach. Clients put a lot of importance on how responsive attorneys are. They want to make sure that they can call the lawyer any time for advice or help.
-When fielding inquiries, you also want to make sure that you spend enough time with each prospective client in order to really understand their situation. Clients want an attorney that cares about their situation and listens to their concerns. Take the time to understand what they are going through.
4) Have colleagues write reviews for you
- It never hurts to have both other attorneys and past clients publicly vouch for you. Other attorney reviews can aid in increasing your credibility in a certain field of law.
5) Create a video
-Since personality plays a large part in the client’s decision to hire an attorney, it helps to have a video that shows off not only your expertise but also your softer side.
-Videos allow you to speak directly to prospective clients that you are not able to meet in person.
