Our Marketing Methodology on How to Get Your “Perfect Clients”

Contrary to popular belief, just building a pretty website isn’t going to get you the clients you are looking for. It’s not one of those things where "if you build it, they will come." Once you have built it, you need to constantly come up with new and improved ways of attracting visitors to as many different pages on your website as you can.  

The fact is, your website is the foundation of your business, from an online perspective. Everyone will visit it at some point. It is simply where people will end up. And it’s got a big job to do for you. Once people get there—by keyword, specific search, brand name search, or some other way—your website's important job is to then convert them into a lead or contact.

This is where interesting, relevant, and helpful content that answers your visitor's questions comes into play. Your prospects need to be able to find you, understand why you're most qualified to help them, and learn why they should contact you—either by phone or using an online contact form. Don't assume this is easier than it is; improving conversion is an art form.

And the process doesn't stop there. You need to retain their interest and your relevance to them forever and ever! Online marketing involves so much more than putting your name out into cyberspace and trying to draw in new clients. It is an active process that truly never ends if you want your business to be successful.

That starts with gleaning and building “your list.” Ideally, this list of yours contains all of your clients or patients, people you have turned away, peers and colleagues, associates, and even friends. Put them all on your list, and be disciplined about categorizing them so you send them only the materials intended for them—that’s key to list management.

If you manage your lead intake and list properly and appropriately, you will be rewarded with a constant flow of the type of business you wish to obtain.

Attorney Mike Cardoza speaks about his experience working with Foster Web Marketing and what it has ...

Foster Web Marketing'sPhilosophyrevolves around 3 main concepts

Attract

Attract the right types of visitors who have the potential to turn into a client or refer other clients in the future.

Convert

Once you have attracted the right kinds of visitors you need to have a conversion focused experienced that allows visitors to easily convert to a lead on your website.

Retain

Follow-up sequences, and ongoing communications will help turn a single potential client into a stronger referral network.

How to get your perfect clients

Each concept is a step in the lifecycle of a client. First you need to attract people to your law firm or medical practice, then you need to convert them to contact you or get something from you and finally, you need to find ways to sustain brand awareness and retain them as a client of your firm.

So, how do you actually do all of this? Stick with us and we'll help you build your firm in ways you never thought were possible.

Cast The Line and Attract Your Perfect Client

The beautiful thing about marketing is that you don't have to strain to appeal to everyone. In fact, it's better if you don't appeal to everyone, because when those leads begin to roll in, a greater proportion will be the clients you want to attract.

You need to sit down and imagine your perfect client. Think about who he is, how he's feeling, where he lives, his level of education and anything else you think would be important. Once you know whom you're trying to attract, your marketing efforts will be a lot more effective. Keeping your ideal client in mind, you need to:

You've Worked So Hard! Make SureYou Retain Those Clients

Just because a person reached out to you about their case or medical issue does not mean they are going to be a client right away.

We live in a society where people are always looking for the newest, best thing—and that's just as true for doctors, lawyers, and other skill-based experts as it is for consumer goods. If you don't constantly remind your former clients that you're still looking out for their interests, they may disappear forever.

There are, however, many different approaches you can take to reaching out and retaining individuals as clients of your business:

Client Case Study

A partner client, Deloach & Hofstra, took an excellent approach to the reputation management process.
  • Education - helped informed the firm on the importance of reviews in today’s marketplace.
  • Pick the review sites to focus on - Google, Facebook, and Avvo are all great to start on.
  • Identify the clients to focus on - loyal past and current clients along with business partners in the local community who’ve used their services.
  • Timing - the team requested feedback as cases came to a close or when clients seemed happiest
Pro Tip: In some cases, hiring an attorney is not necessary. However, if a client receives free legal advice, seeking reviews is completely legitimate and almost always results in positive feedback!
