Legal News Service
Legal News Service
We are pleased to have established a legal news service for our law practice customers.
What are the benefits?
There are really five main benefits
- Client retention
- Increased existing client work
- Prospect engagement
- Client database integrity
- Website optimisation
The main considerations
In designing the service we were conscious of a few important things:
- Many law practices complained that they did not have time to organise and operate such a service themselves;
- Some only thought about producing a hard copy version which would sit at Reception – and occasionally be sent to clients in the mail;
- There was a perception that newsletters created by third parties lacked customisation. While they may be branded to the practice, they were not tuned in to the particular customer base and its needs.
How it works
We, or experienced authors commissioned by us, author articles relating to newsworthy events, legislative change, and cases.
The articles are written as clearly as possible to minimise legal jargon and make them comprehensible to the target audience – the practice’s clients. While informational, we ensure there are calls to action where appropriate.
Once compiled, we send these to our law practice customers 4 times annually, allowing time for them to review, vet and suggest any changes they may want to make. They may also want to include their own articles or even items of relevance just to the practice (e.g. recent staff additions).
Distributing the Articles
Full service and reporting – Only available for Law 2 Web customers running a website with us
This involves the quarterly despatch of the content via email to a database of clients held in the website. We set up (and maintain) the email template fully configured and branded to the law practice’s requirements.
The outgoing email contains the articles without the need to have to open or download a separate pdf. We then report back metrics to the law practice including;
- Open rate of emails;
- Click rate of links in the emails;
- bounced email addresses; and
- clients who opt to unsubscribe.
The process is repeated for each quarterly release.
The law practice concerned then updates the database as required and the process is repeated for each quarterly release. We also load the articles on the website fully tagged for practice area (e.g. Property, Commercial, Company, Trusts, Succession). These have leaders and of course can be linked from other platforms (e.g. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn). This assists in optimisation of the website for Google.
Price is $1,200 per annum. This includes all the above services but there may be additional costs if the practice wants assistance with the establishment and maintenance of the database.
For practices wanting to utilise some, but not all, of the Full service we are happy to discuss a customised arrangement. POA.
The following diagram shows how the system works. BESTLAW is the law practice here.
