The Foster Web Marketing Boot Camp has a huge success each year, primarily due to everyone's participation and their eagerness to learn. In the past we've covered the basics—like a step-by-step guide to Local SEO—to the in-depth, like using the data provided by Google Analytics. We always have a great time and lots of positive energy, but we also feel it's important to gather anonymous feedback to get a real grasp on what our attendees thought of their time at the Boot Camp. It would be an understatement to say that we, as well as the attendees, were incredibly pleased with the whole experience! Read about what they had to say: "The staff was approachable and able to answer any and all questions. It was a comfortable environment, everyone was helpful, and provided me with all of the tools and information I needed regarding the navigation of DSS and social media." "I was interested the whole time. There wasn't a moment that I didn't want to listen. You really provided excellent information." "I liked how you broke down each feature of a complete marketing strategy and showed us how to manage it all ourselves." "I liked going over in detail each section of DSS and LOVED being able to print out the presentations after the boot camp." "Seeing how to use the different features—which I hadn't really played around with yet." "Covered a lot of good stuff. Good overview." "I liked the hands-on experience in the classroom experience." "We were told this would be a 'boot camp,' and that was no joke. I enjoyed the wealth of information, and the free-flowing format that allowed free-flowing ideas and questions between speakers and participants." "There's a lot to do and I need a strategy to address each area one by one. You guys are the best of the best. So grateful to be a part of this!" The attendees rated the Boot Camp with an overall score of 70% "fantastic." Eighty percent of our guests thought the DSS Review was "excellent," and 70% said they were "very likely" to recommend Foster Web Marketing to a friend or colleague.

Hi, I'm Jim Dodson. I'm a personal injury lawyer practicing in Clearwater, Florida. Early on I was with Tom and Foster Web Marketing for about three years, and we went through a period of growth. Tom has talked at many of our functions about some frustrations that developed at that time, and I made the decision to pull out and go to greener grass. I spent two years in the wilderness, however, because it is NOT better out there! I'm back with Foster Web Marketing, and very glad to be here. The company that I'm with today is a totally different company—in terms of what they do and what they provide—than they were even when we were here two years ago. I can tell you that if you want a hands-on experience and you want guidance, and you want to know how your site is producing, what you need to change to make it better, this is the place to be. There is nothing like DSS that I've seen on the market, and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Foster to anyone who's considering a website. Our website is a very important part of what we do, but it's not the only thing that we do. My business has been built on referral-based marketing for years, but I know through the website that I can reach more people, more opportunities to find and reach my perfect client. And quite frankly in my market, with the development of the 800-pound-gorilla who's now become the 1200-pound-gorilla, the opportunity for my referral sources to get cases continues to be diminished in my view, because people are not necessarily going to the lawyer that they knew. So using the website to reach these people before they even find the referral source. Jim Dodson Personal Injury Attorney Jim Dodson Law 310 Wildwood Way Clearwater, FL 33756Jim Dodson
When it comes to successfully marketing a legal practice, it is sometimes the most obvious lessons that are the easiest to overlook. Attorney Kevin Mottley understands this, and recognizes the importance of the basic fact that potential clients want to be shown why they should hire you before they even meet you in person. While an effective website is important, merely reading words is not enough to develop a relationship with new clients. Video is able to reach people in ways that the written word cannot. Why is this theory so obvious? It is because in the practice of law, “seeing is believing” applies every day. Juries, for example, need to be shown why they should find in your favor during a trial. Many attorneys, however, fail to recognize this simple concept. Attorney Mottley uses video to lay the groundwork for a good rapport with his potential clients. They are able to see and hear him before ever meeting face-to-face. He then has the opportunity to explain to them what they need to hear and want to know—earning their trust and ideally building a successful attorney-client relationship. It is vital to note that not all legal marketing videos are created equal. Interested in learning more about how effective video has helped attorneys like Kevin Mottley grow a successful practice?

Prior to joining Foster Web Marketing, Bob had his law firm's website with another company. After being with this company for some time, Bob noticed that his rankings on the search engines had taken a nosedive. Even more disturbing was the fact that Bob recommended a friend who practiced in the same area and did the same type of law who was getting very good results from this company. When Bob asked his webmaster about the discrepancy, the webmaster responded that he had been trying something different for his newer clients that was working very well and had not bothered to institute this for the clients who had been with them for a longer time! As Battle recounts, "So much for loyalty and sayonara to that webmaster." Right off the bat, Bob Battle was impressed with Tom Foster's knowledge of search engine optimization and his drive to be the best. Also, by doing an independent search of Tom's existing clients at that time—such as Ben Glass—Bob was able to see that Tom was telling the truth about his ability to drive clients to the top of the search engine results lists. By the beginning of 2007, BobBattleLaw.com began dominating the search engine results for all the Richmond area jurisdictions under Google searches for "DUI lawyer" or "reckless driving speeding lawyer." Battle recalls, "Given the experience I had with my previous webmaster that led me to Tom Foster, I consider myself to be an extremely demanding client. Despite this predisposition, Tom Foster far exceeded my expectations and I was thrilled at how rapidly I began to get tremendous results for all relevant search terms in my practice." Today, Bob Battle counts himself as a "raging fan" of Tom Foster and Foster Web Marketing. In fact, when Battle—who has moonlighted as a professional comedian for over 20 years—was asked by Foster Web Marketing whether he wanted the Basic, Pro, or Premium Web Content Package, Battle responded: "I'll take the Plutonium level!" Given his background as a professional actor and comedian, Bob Battle is one of the first lawyers in the country to recognize the value of video on a website. Bob even had uploaded a homemade video on his previous website before switching to Foster Web Marketing. When Tom Foster announced that he had secured the services of the amazingly talented videographer Jim Folliard in a joint venture to provide video for Foster Web Marketing clients, Bob Battle jumped at the opportunity. When other lawyers are contemplating making the switch to Foster Web Marketing, one of their biggest questions is whether someone can put a number on how much more money comes into their practice as a result of having a top-ranked website. Without hesitation, Bob Battle likes to tell the story of coming back from his initial Great Legal Marketing seminar and reading a book by Dan Kennedy which had an exercise requiring the reader to write down how much money they hope to gross in a year. Energized and pumped after attending the seminar, Bob chose a number that was $50,000 higher than any year he had grossed in his first 20 years of practicing law. Bob came nowhere near that number because he wound up making $250,000 more than he had made in any previous year of practicing law! And what about the recession year of 2008? "Because of the great positioning my website gets in the search engines and the fact that most people who see the outstanding design and content on my website decide to hire me before I even speak with them, I have chosen not to participate in the recession of 2008," quips Battle. "In fact, 2008 was once again my most successful year ever, and that is not even including the additional income I make from the DUI Marketing Success System. Because of my position as a coach of other lawyers and someone who is honest and will always give a no-B.S. answer, I speak with a lot of lawyers who tell me that they are not sure whether they can afford a website with Foster Web Marketing. My answer is always the same. I tell them they can't afford not to invest their money with Foster Web Marketing. In fact, it should be priority number one with any lawyer's marketing budget."Bob Battle

To me, what's great about Foster Web Marketing is that they have great people who understand search engine optimization and programming for the web. And they are building a tool just to do that. They're big enough, and powerful enough to have a lot of information on best practices and what you should be doing on the web but they're small enough to give you tons of personal attention. You're not going to get that with a FindLaw or Martindale-Hubbell website because they are just too big. When we had a FindLaw site, we were just another small law firm to them and it was really hard to get the customer service. For me, Foster Web Marketing is just the right size. They give us the technical expertise that we want. When we have real issues or things we want to accomplish, we go to them and they work with us, their designers work with us. They've added new features for us before. I love that, practically speaking, it's like having our own web services team right in our office...they are like an extension of us. We would never get that with FindLaw. – Mischelle Davis Davis Law Group www.InjuryTrialLawyer.comMischelle Davis
