About the Seminar
Managing Your Online Presence for Lawyers
Whether you voluntarily participate in online client development or not, big internet companies are creating content about you and your firm. This trend has spread from niche "attorney search and ratings" websites to the master of the internet: Google. Eighty-eight percent of all internet searches in the U.S. are conducted using Google. Many lawyers are unaware that Google is creating ads with content about law firms gleaned from other sources. The ads may contain information that is incorrect, and even include ratings and reviews. These ads appear when anyone searches for your firm using Google. Lawyers know to consult the South Carolina Rules of Professional Conduct on advertising before adopting any online marketing products or tools. Our two experts in legal online marketing and SEO will provide an overview of the latest online trends, including Google Ads, so that you can make better informed decisions.
Legal Technology Trends for Client
The more things change, the more they stay the same. While the world has felt flipped upside-down, the pillars of the business of law remain unchanged: reputation and relationships. What continues to change is how we rely on technology to create, nurture, and solidify relationships and demonstrate our reputation for remarkable client service. Let's explore the technology trends driving transformation for the legal profession.
