In this podcast, Sierra Winter talks about the importance of law firm branding and how it encourages new cases. Everything from logos to custom website layouts are talked about in this week’s podcast.
Recently, we have been investing in new ways to help our clients tap into the internet to get more cases and clients. What has always set us above the competing law firm marketing companies is our dedication to social networking as an absolute must in the search engine marketing strategy. Of course you cannot advocate social networks without talking about Twitter.
Twitter is a micro-blogging application which allows users to update a list of “followers” on various topics and happenings. The popularity of this ever changing exchange of information has even prompted Bing and Google to integrate Twitter feeds into their web search results when searching for popular topics.

News and early forms of journalism can date back to biblical times when messengers were used to send information to villages and civilizations. Today, information is everywhere and the craving for more is growing.

Here at the SEOLawFirm.com lab, we have been working on new plans to help a more diverse group of law firms market themselves online.
Ok, we don’t really have a “lab”, but we do have a few people who monitor search engine optimization trends and come up with new ways to effectively get traffic to our client’s websites.
In fact, getting traffic is what these new plans are all about. Search engine optimization is one very important part of online marketing.

The object of search engine optimization is to reach local clientele who are in need of legal counsel in your practice area. It’s a pretty simple concept but getting ranked on the first page in many metro areas requires a lot of work. Google basically is looking for a short list of items.
