Most law firm websites are finished in 2 to 4 weeks

How much time have you wasted emailing clients back and forth to set up meeting times?

You can automate this by using online scheduling.

It will help you save time and get more clients.

Online scheduling is software that allows people to schedule a time to have a meeting, phone call or video call with you.

The best part?

We can set it up for you.

Here’s what online scheduling does:

Easy scheduling: Anyone with the calendar link can schedule an appointment with you online. They can choose an available time, and you can set how long each appointment will be. Clients love it.

Set your availability: If you want to do meetings and take calls only during certain times of the day or on certain days of the week, you can set an availability window. People will not be able to set appointments outside of that window.

Calendar sync: You can sync your online calendar with existing calendars. So you don’t have schedule clashes. If you have time blocked out in your existing calendar, people will not be able to schedule appointments with you during that time.

Multiple appointment types: You can set up different types of appointments for different purposes. One type for your current clients, one type for potential new clients, etc. You can set different appointment lengths and availability windows for each type of appointment.

Put it on your website: You can set up a “schedule consultation” button on your website. Potential new clients on your website can click the button and schedule a meeting time that suits them. Potential new clients love it.

How do you get started?

Have a look at online scheduling software options. Acuity and Calendly are affordable and easy to use. Choose the one that’s right for you and set up an account.

Want to accept payments online?

We can add your online payment platform to your website. 

Benefits:

  • Save time

  • Get clients to make one-off payments, or automatically take monthly or regular payments as agreed.

  • Boost your firm’s cashflow every month.

Have you invested in Legal Tech?

We can integrate a chatbot onto your website.

Tell us about your legal tech provider. And we’ll determine if it’s a good fit.

As with all Legal Tech, you’ll need to be invested. Don’t expect a ‘turn key solution’. Invest the time and energy.

Yes, there will be a learning curve. But you’ll save time and money in the long run.

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.

Let’s talk about leads –

Do you want people calling you? Booking an appointment? Sending a message?

We’ll discuss this with you and build an effective lead generation system based on your needs.

This includes:

  • Keyword research
  • Marketplace analysis
  • Standard onsite improvements that every design company SHOULD do (but don’t). For example: title tags, meta descriptions, inbound and outbound links, short URL structure, heading tags and more.

Want to rank for services in multiple locations?

You’ll need our popular ‘location landing page’.

Learn more here.

Our websites are responsive. What does this mean? They look great on ALL devices. Computer, Tablet and Mobile.

Most websites receive more than 50% of new traffic on mobile. So, it’s arguably more important than desktop.

What pages should most law firms have?

  • Home
  • Practice Areas
  • Team
  • Pricing/Fees/Costs
  • FAQ
  • News/Blog
  • Contact

 

What pages should a law firm website include?

Listen to this podcast episode for more information.

This is an important Google ranking factor. In fact, research suggests more 50% of people leave a website if it takes longer than 3 seconds to load.

We’ll listen to your ideas, challenges and dreams. This will form the basis of our work. It’s YOUR project. Expect something special. Not some dull, lifeless, ‘cookie-cutter’ website. Our work is hand-crafted for Aussie and NZ law firms.

We’ll use our experience to guide you through the project. Expect well-written emails and responsive communication. We’ll guide you through every step of the way. After all, every project needs a leader. 

We’ll build your new website on a private URL. This means you can see what we’re doing – before anyone else does. Google won’t ‘crawl’ this private link. In other words, it won’t show up in search results.

Edit and update your own website (if you want to). How? We use the #1 wordpress site builder ‘Elementor’. No coding required. Most people with a basic ability with computers can do it.

Site migration (i.e. removing your old website and launching your NEW website onto your web address)

How do people find your website? What pages do they use? Which search queries are most profitable?

We’ll ensure you can easily access this information.

Brendan was actively involved from start to finish and remained on track and responsive throughout.

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.
