Is Your Firm Website Working for You or Against You?
WARNING: It’s time for your website to adapt or risk becoming extinct.
We are not being overly dramatic either, just factual. Here’s the deal: The best website built in 2013 will simply not compete with a website built in 2017, no matter how frequently you add excellent content. The Internet is always changing, which means your site will quickly become outdated, no matter how great it was upon launch. The best performing websites are the ones that adapt to dynamic Internet marketing methods and stay on the cutting edge.
It Doesn’t Have To Be a Massive Overhaul... Meaningful and Strategic Design Changes Can Make a Huge Impact
Although aesthetics are important, success is not just about your home page looking pretty; ALL the pages in your website need to provide the right kind of information, delivered in an efficient and effective way. Your website needs to build trust, generate qualified leads, answer their pressing questions, establish your brand, follow current best Internet practices, and above all, your website needs to generate more profitable cases and clients.
Good news for you: a successfully coded and designed website will drive qualified traffic, generate visitor engagement, answer important questions, convert users into leads, and ultimately, it will generate more business.
Your website is often the only chance at a first impression—if it’s not beautiful, fast, and functional, your users are going to look somewhere else. Remember, while it may not be “fair,” your website is a direct reflection of you and your abilities as an attorney. On average, you have about 10 seconds to make an impression before a user will leave your site if nothing hooks him.
Long-time Foster Web Marketing clients Bill Voss and Vaughan de Kirby have redesigned and upgraded their websites three or four times over the years, and each time they get more leads and cases as a result. Good design DOES make a difference. I encourage you to check them out and see for yourself:
When is the last time you updated your website design? If it’s been over a year, I can pretty much guarantee your site is in need of some major updates.

As you know, we only work with those we want to work with. We turn away most law firms because they don’t have the right attitude towards marketing. These are not templated sites created in a factory in Asia. These are hand-crafted, hand-designed and -coded websites that you can help build the way you want. They are unique to you and made in the USA.
