Step 1 – Gathering Content & Getting Organised

Get ready. We’ll be asking you for content. Start thinking about what message you want to convey to your audience. Organise your ideas and send them to us. We’ll show you where to send it. You’ll be guided with a Google document. This will include a Q&A section.

This is a crucial stage of building your website. Remember – output always equals input. So, the more dedicated you are to providing content, the better the website will be. 

It’s also recommended that you have a professional logo and great team photos. Need help? Get in touch. We can sort this out for you.

Step 2 – Site Development

This is where the fun starts. We’ll build your website on our content management system. You’ll also receive a private link so you can watch.

Step 3 – Website Design and Branding

It’s time to add some flavour. The framework is now complete. So, we’ll design the pages to reflect your company’s brand. The website will be almost complete. It’s time for you to provide feedback.

Step 4 – Design Edits and Deployment

You get two revisions. These can be made via email or phone. So, what do you like? What don’t you like? Let us know. Take time to think carefully about your feedback. We’ll read your ideas, implement them, and discuss any suggestions from our end. Final testing will be completed. Then it’s time for launch!

FYI

We’ll conduct in-depth market research on your niche. This includes competition and keyword analysis. It’s okay, you don’t have to worry about this stuff. We’ll pick the most profitable search phrases and sprinkle them throughout your website.

Yes. 50% will secure our services. Final payment is due upon completion.

All details are explained in the proposal and invoice.

Yes. This is explained in the Proposal.

But our monthly marketing services can be cancelled with only 1 month’s notice.

We believe in ethical law firm marketing.

We prefer to host the websites that we build. This ensures better performance and reliability. It’s a feature of our monthly care plan.

Yes. We’ll show you how. But, if you’re already using WordPress, we won’t need to spend much time training you. Why? We use WordPress too. So, the system will remain the same.

Yes. This is the only platform we work with.

Most of our clients sign up for our monthly website support plan.

Inclusions are listed on this page.

If you insist on taking care of these services yourself, then it’s unlikely you’ll have ongoing costs from us.

Including hosting, security, backups, updates, Elementor WordPress builder premium subscription, website edits, tech support and more.

But, if your monthly requirements significantly exceed the inclusions of our monthly care plan, we’ll need to negotiate a fee that’s more reasonable. 

If you’re a small law firm, this is unlikely.
 
We can negotiate a fee for ‘once off’ updates. But, we’ve found the care plan provides better value in the long run.
Yes!
 
The monthly care plan includes general WordPress software and plug-in updates
 
It also includes website edits.
Yes
 
All our websites are automatically backed up to a secure server.

Legalsites will develop a Google document that both parties can access. This will include a Q&A section. We will write your content once you answer our questions. Various adjustments will be made to optimise your website for traffic, leads and conversions. These adjustments can be undone at the client’s request.

Your ranking will most likely IMPROVE.

Most of our clients receive a boost in their ranking shortly after site migration. What does site migration involve? Well, it’s a bit complicated. We’ll spare you the technical mumbo jumbo. Essentially – LegalSites will upload your new website. We’ll also redirect your domain to your new website. All site visitors will see your new website. It will be optimised for SEO.

It will probably improve. Especially if you hire our SEO services.

Site visitors will be directed to your new website. All existing links to your domain will go to your new website.

You can request reports from our team. This includes information on contact form submissions, where your audience is coming from, traffic and user-behaviour. Additionally, all of your traffic and lead data can be viewed on-demand by logging into your website.

Was your website built on WordPress? If so, we’ll use a plugin that ‘clones’ your website. Then we’ll re-design it. This saves us a load of time. e.g. your blog articles and site structure don’t have to be re-added or uploaded again.

 

If your website was built on a different CMS, our web developer will ensure a smooth and easy migration.

 

Most websites will not go offline during migration and launch.

 

If your website needs to go offline during launch, it’s usually very brief (a minute or so).

Yes. There are plenty on options available. For example, RapidPay.

We can add a ‘pay now’ button which allows clients to make online payments.

Yes. We like to use Calendly. It’s got a free version and a free trial that includes the premium featured. But, most law firm’s can get started on the free plan.
