Top 4 Reasons to Use a Celebrity Endorsement

Many companies are looking at different strategies for 2019, having a celebrity endorsement can increase awareness. Anyone who watches a screen of some sort has seen a celebrity endorsing some product or service. Celebrity endorsements are everywhere and businesses big and small capitalize daily on the benefits of a famous person being associated with their company. They are efficient and have been proven to increase sales 20-40% by Harvard

Legal marketing has slowly been evolving yet for decades, celebrities of all sorts have been signing deals to sponsor products. From sports legends to movie actors to talk show hosts to social media stars, it seems like everyone who is famous to some degree is a spokesperson for a product or service, and it truly does work for a variety of reasons. 

Here are the top 4 reasons why a celebrity endorsement would increase intakes;

#1: A celebrity makes a law firm legit

Legal practices often have a hard time entering crowded markets because they lack rapport with their consumer base. They are seen as less legitimate because of their longevity, and it is hard to inspire new business. However, if a well-known celebrity were to attach themselves to this law firm and promotes it, that suggests to the masses that this new practice is credible. People believe that a popular celebrity would only do an advertisement for a law firm that is on the rise and has staying power, so when they see a celebrity endorsement they are more likely to put their faith in that company and become a customer.

#2: Picking the right celebrity aligns two brands

Every celebrity has things people relate to them. If they were asked what they think of when they hear Chuck “The Iceman” Liddell, they would likely say professional fighting and action films. Companies can use a celebrity’s brand and related fields like this to find the perfect person to align themselves with. A fashion store chain probably wouldn’t go to Chuck Liddell to promote their product. They logically would to go with someone much more appropriate like Beyonce. By aligning the right celebrity with the right product or service, a company can benefit greatly.

#3: Celebrities can introduce new demographics to your Law Firm

Every legal practice should have a specific demographic target in mind when advertising to the public. Finding a celebrity endorsement that can expand upon that can be extremely helpful to growing a brand. By using the right celebrity that has mainstream appeal, you can reach your target demographics. When there are aspects, such as Chuck Liddell vs. Tito Ortiz III, this can easily expand the reach of a company. By tapping into interested consumers that might not be in the target audience.

#4: Easy to remember

Great advertisements as a result are inherently memorable. The formula for making a standout advertisement has never been clear-cut. One thing that always helps make a commercial memorable is having a memorable person in it. Even if someone isn’t an avid fan of sports, they know who Chuck Liddell is. The same goes for the leaders in fashion, music, film, television, and social media. Using that instant recognition, viewers will typically have more of an emotional response to an advertisement than if it were an unknown person. 

For that reason, celebrity endorsements are clearly a beneficial tool for businesses of all scopes and sizes, from beauty entrepreneurs to law firms and everything in between. If your law firm wants to increase intakes and find new clients through the use of celebrity endorsements, contact us. We are a full-service marketing agency with extensive experience in celebrity endorsements. Above all, we will make sure your firm finds the perfect celebrity to partner with.

PPC Strategy: 3 Ways to Enhance Your Campaign

As 2019 rolls around the corner, keeping up with digital strategies should be a high priority if you’re advertising online.  Pay Per Click (PPC), also commonly referred to as cost-per-click (CPC), is a digital marketing strategy that increases traffic to a company’s website. In PPC strategy, an advertiser pays a search engine a certain fee every time a consumer clicks on their advertisement. These spots are bid upon and companies receive better placement based on the amount of money they spend.

No matter the firm, a PPC strategy is essential to make a company stand out amongst millions of results. Here are three surefire ways to enhance a company’s PPC strategy at any level:


Create 3+ Advertisements per Group

Every great advertising campaign begins in a sea of different ideas, slogans, logos, and messages. It takes time to find what a company believes to be their best advertising strategy. Putting out just one advertisement with the same message, graphics, and photos can work for some if it is that one-in-a-million idea. However, companies often benefit from creating and implementing three or more advertisements in each campaign.

By making multiple advertisements catering to different sections of a company’s demographic, the internal PPC systems can optimize their advertisement generation and put the appropriate advertisement in front of the right customer. This approach also provides a company with valuable performance data. They can determine which advertisements and messages resonate most with target demographics.


Include Extensions

Extensions on PPC listings are things like extra links, call buttons or other pertinent information that is meant to catch the eye of the consumer and get them to click on an extension rather than another company’s listing. These extensions are the key to catching people’s eyes as they provide more information and make a company seem more extensive and credible than competition listed in a traditional way. Almost every company could benefit from adding multiple types of these extensions, especially site link extensions, callouts, and structured snippets.

Sitelink extensions direct browsers to specific pages within a website, providing them a quick and easy way to find pertinent information like business hours, product descriptions, or an about page. Callouts provide more space to add text describing your business. This gives a customer more information about the company and inclines them to click. Structured snippets highlight specific relevant keywords used in a website and list them directly under the website header, enticing them to click and learn more if their specific need or want is listed in these highlighted words.


Review Your PPC Strategy and Adapt

No matter how successful a PPC strategy is, the internet is an unpredictable place and things change quickly. One week, a company’s PPC may garner thousands of clicks to their website a day. The very next week, however, the phones could be completely silent. That’s why it is crucial to reassess PPC strategies routinely to determine what is working and what needs changing. Once a problem is found, it can be fixed, rather than continuing to pay for something that isn’t getting results. This takes time, money, and resources that many firms simply cannot allocate to such a project. This is why it is helpful to find an outside company to handle PPC strategy and adaption.

In conclusion, PPC development and management is a crucial and beneficial part of every company’s marketing strategy. However, it is a strenuous process for someone unfamiliar with the in the ins-and-outs of PPC. The time, effort, and resources allocated to such an undertaking for a business owner could begin to outweigh the benefits.

Luckily, there are companies like TigerShark Studios who specialize in PPC marketing. We can handle all aspects of an advertising campaigns. Contact our experts today so we can help strengthen your business through a fantastic PPC strategy.


3 Tips On Law Firm Automation

3 Tips On Law Firm Automation

With 2019 around the corner, law firm automation processes should be studied, reviewed and analyzed for possible efficiency.  Using technology to help you maximize productivity is what most law firms are looking into as caseloads become heavier and heavier.  Automation can help your practice with the initial intake, document generation, department communications and so much more. Improving your office, while reducing errors, will ultimately help your law firm generate and manage more business.

Without law firm automation, your business consists of repetitive, tedious tasks that can take its toll throughout the workday. Most aspects of your business can be automated, whether you’re a solo practitioner, smaller law firm or multi-attorney practice.  In today’s age, attorneys are required to use law firm automation to stay profitable and, more importantly, survive.

Here are three tips on the areas where law firm automation can help:

1) Automate client documents / agreements / billing / file management

  • Drafting documents and building out a document database for your law practice is a necessity, especially for documents your office uses repeatedly.  From intake forms to contracts, letters to counsel and much more, turning these into preset forms can be very efficient, but keep in mind preserving client confidentiality. Creating and updating a form library will pay off short term and long term when it comes to productivity.

2) Automate how your firm handles intakes and workflows

  • Every case will have a long list of tasks and relevant deadlines, and while each case has its own set of facts, most cases have the same requirements.  From setting up the intake to the client filling out a questionnaire, filling out a fee agreement and setting up a case timeline, automating these workflows will help improve efficiency.
  • Utilizing self-scheduling software within your website that actively communicates with your staff in the office is crucial. When this is done well, you can expect top level performance.

3) Automate interior and external communications between clients and staff

  • The most known complaint in the legal industry is poor client communications.  Phone calls and emails can be very time consuming yet are very important to your firm.  There should never be a gap in communication that lasts for over 4-6 weeks. Clients want to know what is going on and what the process looks like. Utilize reminders on your calendar to schedule follow-up events.  You can also look at client portals to automate case activities and updates.
  • As a professional, you should never have to write the same text over and over again.  Having email templates ready to use is a great way to save time. You should have multiple email responses preset to be ready to fire off, with little to no customization required.
  • Utilizing a call answering service can help the single practitioner in different ways than it could help a larger firm.  Look at different services and make sure the investment aligns with the potential use.   

When running a law practice, marketing is usually not your specialty nor your first priority. Improving your efficiency throughout the office and fighting for your clients are usually the top priorities as a managing attorney.

Top 3 Tips in Content Marketing for Lawyers

A potential client’s journey begins with content marketing, or lack of.  About 86 percent of potential clients conduct non-branded search queries, as per research by GroupM. Imagine if your law firm came up very high on the first page of an organic search on Google or Bing? The number of intakes would climb significantly, due to the fact that you’re in front of your demographic.

Additionally, accident victims read before they select. The average person consumes 11.4 pieces of content before making a decision based on a product or service, according to Forrester. Content marketing is a proven strategy for acquiring new leads. But not enough lawyers are taking advantage of this marketing technique to generate interest in their legal services.

Tip #1: Understanding how broad marketing is

“Content isn’t limited to the text on our Web pages or product pages or blogs or e-mail newsletters. It’s broader than the things we think of as marketing. Content is essentially everything your customer or prospect touches or interacts with—including your own online properties and Web pages and the experiences they offer, but also everything on any social channel (like Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, YouTube, and so on).” – Ann Handley, Marketing Executive, and published author.

A good content marketing strategy must be formulated to create an effective course of action. Thus increasing the profile of your law firm and generating new leads on a regular basis.

Tip #2: Understanding the importance of blogging

Posting a handful of blogs now and then will not receive much traction. You must post relevant, valuable content on a regular basis so your clients know when to expect new releases of information on your website. Distribution channels of your content should include email newsletters, social media channels, and even guest-posting on relevant websites.

Tip #3: Blogging is a long-term goal

Posting well-curated blogs and social media posts build your law firm’s online presence and credibility. It will also aid in your search engine optimization (SEO). By posting constant, relevant content on your website, you can begin to see an improvement in your search engine ranking score. This makes it easier for potential clients to find you.

Blogging establishes you as an expert to your clients and potential clients. A blog gives you the opportunity to connect with prospective clients on a different, more personable level. Law firms that have blogs are more likely to appear knowledgeable than those that don’t. Clients want to entrust their case and money to the attorney with the most experience and knowledge.

Content marketing is a complex multi-level strategy which is very time consuming to create and stay on top of. It is likely your competition already makes use of a content strategy to fight for new clients. In today’s online environment, not having a comprehensive content marketing strategy tilts the odds in the favor of your competition. Especially if your SEO is suffering and you have no active PPC campaign.

Top Legal Marketing Strategies in 2018

The legal field is a very saturated and competitive market, it is more important now than ever for your law firm to stand out from the competition. Here are the best law firm marketing techniques that can help a law firm market their brand most efficiently and effectively:

1. Invest in content marketing and SEO professionals who specialize in law firm advertising.

One of the keys to building a successful website is having well-written content, Google favors well-written content in search page rankings. Content marketing and good SEO are vital if your law firm wants to gain new clients.

2. Your marketing budget should equal 3% – 5% of your turnover.

This figure does not include the wages of your employees, and anything less than 3% will yield no results, especially in the legal marketing industry. This money is allocated to creating effective branding which will get you new clients. Once you have adapted to this rule-of-thumb, you can track your marketing expenditure against different activities to establish which ones are more profitable.
