Solo Discovers Power of Video When Phones Won't Stop Ringing

Solo practitioner Suzanne Meehle who blogs at Solo Practice University has an exciting story to relate about her use of video in marketing her law firm.

In exchange for helping a local film studio set up an LLC, Suzanne had a number of videos of herself produced that feature her sitting in her office while a friend interviews her on basic business law topics.  (You can see them here.)

She set up a channel for herself at YouTube (“YouTube makes it easy,” she reports) and linked her videos back to her website. 

And here’s what happened after she did that:

In the first week, traffic to her website increased 62%.

Page views on her website increased 30% (visitors didn’t just watch the videos, they stayed on her site and visited other pages).

Her phone has not stopped ringing and she is thinking about making her part-time assistant full-time.

Her inbox is filling up with emails from people who have filled out the form on her Contact Us page.

She is not only getting prospects, she is getting actual clients -- and, oh happy day, her referrals have increased as well because her referral sources are now better educated on what she offers.

Here are some of her tips for making videos that connect with prospects:

  • Look professional -- wear a suit.
  • Clean up your office so the viewer can’t see piles of stuff on your desk or credenza.
  • Prepare what you are going to say but don’t read from a script.
  • Produce at least one video that says what you do, but use the rest to provide actual educational content (she did 8 videos on different subjects like tax, employment law, IP, business formation and business planning).
  • If you don’t have access to a local studio, hire a freelance professional in your area -- you can find them at Elance.com or Guru.com.
  • Post your videos on your website and create your own YouTube channel with links back to your site to help your SEO.

Good stuff, Suzanne.  Congratulations on using what works and reaping the benefits!

6 Reasons Why Video Belongs In Your Legal Marketing Mix

Here’s a statistic that is hard to wrap your head around: more than 4 billion videos are viewed on YouTube every day

YouTube also says that more than 6 billion hours are watched each month – one hour for every person on Earth.

Video is a great way for attorneys to connect with prospects on your law firm website and demonstrate expertise in your field of practice. 

Beyond the YouTube stats that demonstrate virtually everyone is viewing video online, here are 6 more reasons why video belongs in your legal marketing mix:

1. Better search results. According to Forrester Research, videos are 53x more likely than traditional websites to be found on the first page of Google search results.

2. Better retention. Forrester Research found that people retain 58% more with both visual and auditory stimulation.

3. More traffic. Forrester Research reports that over 60% of all web traffic comes from online video.

4. More likely to buy. People who view a video are 64% more likely to purchase (comScore).

5. Found in the C-Suite. 65% of senior executives say they have visited a vendor website after watching a video. 59% say they prefer video to text. (Forbes’ Video in the C-Suite).

6. More likely to be shared. Video has the best potential to be shared and go viral compared with other media.

Barriers to Social Media Adoption by Law Firms

I’m in Dallas today at our Rainmaker Retreat law firm marketing seminar, where a lot of our discussions center on the use of social media by law firms.

Last month, I participated in the LegalTech New York 2013 panel — "Taming the Wild West of Social Media: The Secrets of Social Media Success in the Legal Profession".

During the discussion, my fellow panelist, Larry Bodine (editor-in-chief of Lawyers.com and martindale.com), and I were asked to identify the primary barriers to social media adoption in law firms.

Here’s a video outtake of our answers:

Using Your Website to Generate Leads? Make It Move!

Yesterday’s post at Law Marketing Blog by Larry Bodine shares the reasons why video is the killer app for improving your website’s Google ranking and how you can add this important functionality to your site:

There is a "killer app" that will greatly improve the likelihood that potential clients will find you in a Google search.  Research confirms that it is online video, and many lawyers have gotten the message. Just pay a visit to the LawyersDotCom channel you YouTube and check out the 500+ lawyer videos.

Video is the No. 1 reason that people go online, according to Pew Internet Research.  Clients and potential clients would rather watch to a two-minute verbal explanation than read a two-page article. "I don't want anything on paper. I don't have an in-box; if I did everything in it would go into trash. I want something that will catch my eye in 30 seconds or less, certainly not a long block of text. I'm more likely to look at a video," said MeMe Rasmussen, VP and Chief Privacy officer of Adobe Systems Inc.

Consider this:

More than 4 billion videos are viewed on YouTube every day.

Video is the easiest way to a first-page ranking on Google. A website with video is 53 times more likely to be found on the first page of Google compared with a website without video, according to Forrester.

Statistics show that having a video on your law firm website increases the chances that a potential client will retain you, and increases the time a visitor spends on your website.

Therefore it is surprising that only 51% of lawyers in firms of 1-5 lawyers say they plan to use video in their online marketing, according to a LexisNexis/Vizibility survey of law firm use of social media. The lack of video on your law firm website is a marketing mistake.

"Lawyers should develop an introductory video that showcases their personality as well as expertise. Post the video on the Web, including YouTube. Our studies have shown that a well-produced video can be a primary factor in a consumer's decision to contact a firm," says my colleague Craig McGuire, Product Marketing Manager, Websites/SEO/SEM at LexisNexis.

A small firm that is harnessing video effectively is Tully Rinckey of Albany, New York.  The firm's videos have been viewed more than 140,000 times - an outstanding result for a law firm. Many are clips from TV news reports in which a station interviewed a lawyer for comment about current events. Chief Marketing Officer Graig Cortelyou has cultivated good relations with local TV producers who give him these videos for free.  The 33-lawyer firm also displays a video on its home page.

 

Tips for a good video

Recording a video is easy and can be done right in your office. An experienced videographer will have the camcorder, lights and lavaliere microphones that are required. I recommend that you do not write a script and read it word-for-word from a teleprompter. All you need are a set of bullet points to follow, as you would use when making a presentation.

Click Here for Information on LexisNexis® Personal Video Production

To create a video that generates new business, follow these tips:

Don't talk about yourself. Clients are more interested in their legal issue than your credentials. Instead, talk about the problems you solve for clients.

Keep your video short: 2-3 minutes tops. Any longer and you'll lose your viewers.

Get to the point in 8 seconds or else viewers will move on.

The more light the better. Do not rely on sunlight or office light, which will produce dark and off-color videos.   

Move when you speak, because video is designed to capture action. Most lawyer videos show someone sitting at a desk, which is boring. Try standing up and gesturing when you speak, which is how you talk to people in person.

Mind the background. What is seen behind you makes a big difference. Do not sit in front of your office window or a lamp, which will put your face into a shadow. There should be no distracting cars or people moving in the background. Get rid of the clutter too.

One thing is clear: video is the future of law firm marketing. Adding video to your website is like getting an audition with a potential client. Don't delay in bringing your website up to date.

Webinar on Key Performance Indicators: Knowing the Numbers That Run Your Law Firm Now Available On-Demand

Our law firm marketing webinars are great for attorneys who want to learn about proven legal marketing strategies in one-hour doses. But sometimes the timing just isn’t right. Which is why we are now providing one of our most popular webinars – Knowing the Numbers That Run Your Law Firm – in an on-demand format, so you can watch and learn at your convenience, as many times as you wish.

Over the last decade we have helped over 8,000 attorneys market and grow their business. During this time we have identified many of the key characteristics of highly successful law firms.

One of the more consistent ones is that they track specific numbers and key indicators that give them instant insight into how their law firm is performing on a weekly and monthly basis.

Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) are the numbers that make your law firm run. By analyzing these critical metrics, partners and owners of law firms can easily determine whether they are on track to achieve their goals or if they need to retool and refocus their marketing and business development efforts.

In this fast paced webinar, you learn:

  • How to easily identify the 12 key metrics your law firm needs to track and measure
  • How to set up a system to identify these numbers
  • The 7 critical systems every law firm must have
  • CPL and CPC: the 2 most important numbers every attorney must know in order to succeed
  • How to avoid “paralysis by analysis” and being overwhelmed by too much data
  • Delegating roles and responsibility to your staff
  • Using software to track your KPIs

If you’re a spreadsheet and data driven individual then you will love this webinar! However, if numbers scare you or you tend to ignore them because you have a hard time making heads or tails of all the different data you see, then this webinar is a “can’t miss” event!

We cut through the clutter and give you clear and easy to understand guidance on which numbers really matter the most, how to track this information, and what to do with it once you have it!

NY Times Touts Online Video as Low-Cost Marketing

A feature article earlier this week in the New York Times touted the virtues of online video as a low-cost marketing tool for companies of all sizes.  As the Times reported:

Online video is becoming a first stop for many customers. It is akin to what the Web page was a decade ago — something that can give early adopters an edge over competitors. It gives them a channel to talk directly to customers in ways previously accessible only to large companies that could afford TV advertisements.

Online video is a highly underused form of law firm Internet marketing that promises a big return. Whether you place your video on the homepage of your web site, or upload it to YouTube, the benefits are undeniable.

Use these five simple guidelines to make a highly effective online video for use in your law firm Internet marketing efforts:

Use real people, using real words. One of the biggest mistakes attorneys make is using video the way they use PowerPoint. Stringing together static images accompanied by a faceless voice on audio is not an effective use of online video. While this may get seen by some potential clients, it is not nearly as valuable as giving them a chance to see your face and hear your sincere words.

Create a well-thought out script designed to persuade potential client to call you. To accomplish that, ask yourself what makes your law firm different from, and better than, your competition – and then build your script around those key points.

Focus on the viewer, not yourself. It is easy to get caught in the trap of thinking potential clients want to hear about all of your qualifications. The real truth is they want a law firm that understands their problems, and knows how to solve them. Your script should describe some of the problems clearly, and then explain how you can solve them.

Use sidebars to emphasize key points. The time to use still images in your online video is in a sidebar to emphasize your most important points – such as key statistics related to your area of law.

Include your contact information 2-3 times within your video. The goal of your online video is to persuade potential clients to call you. Yet, no matter how well crafted your video is, if those clients do not know how to reach you, it’s wasted effort. With that in mind, say it once within the video, usually at the end, and “write” it at least once in full screen, at the beginning and the end.  By including it at the beginning, return viewers can quickly get your contact information without wading through the entire video again.

If you are looking for a way to connect with clients and prospects, make online video a part of your law firm Internet marketing strategy.

Law Firm Marketing: What the Dancing Merengue Dog Can Teach Lawyers About Online Video

Last week I pulled up the Yahoo! home page and one of their promotional boxes was urging me to click on a video of a dancing dog.  For some reason, it just caught my eye and so I clicked and – I have to admit – it was a pretty amazing performance.  (You can catch it here.)

Monday night I turned on Letterman and noted his guests were Bill Clinton and...the Dancing Merengue Dog, from that same video.  I just checked it again and it has over 5.5 million views on YouTube and a movement is afoot to get the dog a spot on Dancing With The Stars!

So how does a dancing dog fit into your law firm marketing plan?  Look at the video.  It was shot in a parking lot.  Production value is pretty poor, but that didn't matter -- the video has turned that dog into a worldwide sensation.

Whenever I talk to lawyers about adding video to their websites or blogs, the first thing I usually hear is, “I don’t want to spend money on a film crew and make it a big production.”  The lesson from the Dancing Merengue Dog is you don’t have to. All you need is a $200 video camera (they're all pretty high quality these days) and something interesting to say (to your potential clients, not other lawyers!).

Online video is a highly underused form of law firm Internet marketing that promises a big return. Whether you place your video on the homepage of your web site, or upload it to YouTube, the benefits are undeniable.

Video adds value to your law firm Internet marketing approach in three ways:

  1. It engages the viewer immediately and convinces them to stay awhile and listen to your message;
  2. It provides the viewer (aka potential client) with a chance to hear the authority in your voice, to see the sincerity in your face, and ultimately to get to know you, trust you and choose you;
  3. It enables you to tell the client precisely what makes you the better choice in legal support over your competitors.

If you are looking for a way to connect with clients and prospects, make online video a part of your law firm Internet marketing strategy.

Law Firm Marketing: How to Create an Effective Online Video

There is more to online video than simply adding it to your law firm Internet marketing efforts.

Like many things, if video is done well, it can have a significant, positive impact on your law firm Internet marketing – by attracting clients and increasing visibility.

Done poorly, an online video can sidetrack your law firm Internet marketing goals, hurt your credibility and even deter clients from choosing you.

Use these five simple guidelines to make a highly effective online video for use in your law firm Internet marketing efforts:

  1. Use real people, using real words. One of the biggest mistakes attorneys make is using video the way they use PowerPoint. Stringing together static images accompanied by a faceless voice on audio is not an effective use of online video.
