Zimmer, Duncan & Cole was already a successful, established law firm when it sought the help of Foster Web Marketing in order to improve its website. Despite their success, the attorneys at the firm recognized that their ability to continue attracting new, high-quality clients relies heavily on their Internet presence. They place a high value on the unique way that a law firm’s website can communicate with potential clients. Traditional methods for promoting the services of a law firm, such as television commercials or yellow page ads, simply cannot compete with a strong website. Since contacting Foster Web Marketing to help with their online marketing, Zimmer, Duncan & Cole has seen substantial growth in the overall quality of their website as well as the content that it contains. A truly effective site requires regular attention in order to stay at the top of a search engine’s rankings. The firm credits the constant assistance of the Foster team with helping them create and maintain a website that is now one of their most valuable assets. With Foster at the helm, the lawyers are able to focus on providing top-notch service to their clients. They recognize that they would not have such a successful website if they had tried to navigate the world of Internet marketing alone. If you are an attorney, your website is one of your most valuable marketing tools. We encourage you to contact Foster Web Marketing today for a free analysis of your site.

Dr. Gibson saw something truly special when he discovered Foster Web Marketing. He raves that their design of websites, using DSS, was a tool that could unlock the maximum potential of his site. Why work harder, when you can work smarter instead? Dr. Gibson discovered when utilizing DSS, or Dynamic Self-Syndication, that he is now able to accomplish two to three times the results with only half the effort. As any professional knows, a website that minimizes the amount of time and energy needed to keep it running effectively is a valuable asset to a business. Foster Web Marketing’s websites are designed to allow professionals like Dr. Gibson to focus on doing what they do best: providing exceptional service to their patients.

My practice is consistently ranked number one on Google and I receive at least one new patient a day from my website. My advice is to get rid of the yellow pages and sign up with Foster Web Marketing. They are light years ahead of any other web designer."Dr. Peter Wishnie
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!"

Jim Dodson Law is dedicated to helping accident victims in Clearwater Florida get the representation they need. Before working with Foster Web Marketing, Jim Dodson and his team had very little insight into what worked on their website, and where they were missing new opportunities.

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?

Success in Seattle This time last year Chris and I were using FindLaw to manage our firm’s website. We were with FindLaw for more than three years and it was a constant uphill battle. Their website management tool was very difficult to use; it would take the account management team months to make simple changes to our site; they offered no real SEO support; our website was periodically down; there was constant turnover in our account management team; it was difficult to get a customer support representative on the phone; and it was very, very expensive. I would email them lists of software bugs and errors, feature requests, and wish lists that always seemed to go into a black hole. For most of the time that we were FindLaw customers, I was still working at Microsoft running marketing for the U.S. Services Division. On numerous occasions I offered to connect the FindLaw development team to groups at Microsoft that could help them and they ignored the offer. I later found out that they didn’t develop the software themselves but bought the tool from another software company and thus had no control over fixing the software or adding features. By the time that I decided to come help Chris manage and grow the firm I was completely fed up with FindLaw. We met Tom Foster last June. I was instantly impressed. He was giving a presentation on Web 2.0 and he seemed to be really putting into practice the concepts that I knew about from my high-tech days—things that had flown over the heads of the FindLaw guys. And he helped to put many things into a practical usable perspective for me. I learned a great deal from Tom. But I was still gun shy from my experience with FindLaw. I was afraid to move our site to Foster Web Marketing. I was afraid to give up control again. So I spent several months trying to manage our website on my own using Microsoft FrontPage. But I just couldn’t shake the feeling that the Foster web management tool and the Foster team was somehow different. So I began talking to Tom and Ken. We moved our site to Foster Web Marketing in mid-December. When you move your website there always an initial dip which can be scary. But within several months we saw a 68% increase in our web traffic (from Dec ’07 to April ’08). And our website placement in Google search results began to creep up higher and higher until we now show up in the top 4 search results for most of the search terms that we track. But what is just as important (and probably a huge contributing factor to our success) has been the relationship that we have with the Foster team. They welcome feedback about the DSS tool. In fact, they are proactive about asking for feedback from customers. They quickly return calls or emails about support issues or my silly questions. They offer educational opportunities to help customers successfully use the DSS and understand critical Web 2.0 and SEO concepts. They truly understand that their success as a company is directly tied the success of their customers. They know that collaboration is key. We couldn’t be more pleased about our decision to work with Foster Web Marketing and we are happy to be an active member of the DSS user community. – Chris & Mischelle Davis www.injurytriallawyer.com Seattle, WADavis Law Group
I Trust Foster Web Marketing When I joined Foster Web Marketing, my goal as a solo DUI and reckless driving lawyer in Richmond, Virginia was to gross $200,000 in a year. I actually wrote that number down in an exercise in a time management book by marketing guru Dan Kennedy. I also wrote that $200,000 number down while writing down my goals for 2006. Last year, in a recession, I grossed in excess of $450,000 while reducing the number of hours I worked to just over 30 hours/week. In 2009, I am on pace to gross around half a million dollars, have worked 0 weekends and averaged four days in the office per week while running my law practice and a lawyer marketing program. My wife and I just purchased and are building a dream second home in the beautiful mountains of Wintergreen, Virginia. Our children, who are 8 and 4, already have their college education paid in advance. My website has dominated the search engine results for my practice areas for several years now. The Foster Web Marketing team has also taught me the skills to remain dominant for as long as I desire. In addition to the unmatched and awesome talent that the Foster Web Marketing Team possesses, the quality that is equally important to me is TRUST. I absolutely know that the Foster Web team is dedicated to delivering not just good results, not just a positive return on my investment, but to constantly blow me away with the results they deliver. That being said, my advice is simple. When Tom Foster says jump, I say, "How high?" Thus in 2009, even though my results were already great, Tom offered his "SWAT conversion program" to turn more website visitors into clients. I signed on without hesitation. The results, as usual, have been off the charts. I have gone from under 10 requests a month for my consumer guide for reckless driving/speeding to 62 requests in May and 76 requests in June 2009. My website already has convinced hundreds of clients per year that I am the best choice for their case before they have even spoken to me! Thank you, Tom Foster, and all of my friends and partners in success at Foster Web Marketing. — Bob Battle BobBattleLaw.com Richmond, VirginiaBob Battle
