Social Media: Today’s Source for Word-of-Mouth Referrals

Many lawyers obtain clients and cases through word-of-mouth referrals. The quality of your services, for instance, may be well known throughout your city or neighborhood. Today, word-of-mouth referrals are secured through social media networking. With an effective social media marketing campaign, you can establish your reputation throughout a neighborhood that has no physical boundaries – and cost-effectively reach thousands of potential clients.

Consider these facts about the growing reach of social media:

  • Facebook has 1.44 billion monthly active users as of the first quarter of 2015.
  • 500 million tweets are sent per day.
  • Google+ is closely tied to Google Local and YouTube.

Although 84 percent of people between the ages of 18-29 report regularly using social media, older Internet users are catching on fast. Adults between the ages of 30-50, for instance, are the fastest growing Facebook demographic. Facebook users, age 50-64, have recently increased to 60 percent, Business Insider reports.

Social media users recommend products and services every day to their friends, family and followers. With a creative law firm Web marketing strategy that emphasizes social media, these users could soon be recommending your legal services.

There are many other practical benefits to taking advantage of social media tools, including:

  • Real-time voice: When news breaks that affects one of your practice areas, such as an industrial plant explosion, consumer product or prescription drug recall, legislative action or court decision, you can quickly respond through social media and have a real-time voice in online discussions.
  • Web conversions: One of the most important factors in conversion rate is confidence. A client won’t hire you unless he or she feels you are trustworthy and can deliver results. A properly managed social media campaign can build that confidence by communicating the character and reputation of your law firm to potential clients.
  • Search engine optimization: Social media generates incoming links for your firm’s primary Web properties, and it provides additional Web profiles that can rank independently in search engine results. These two benefits alone can bolster an existing SEO campaign and secure broader online visibility for your law firm.
