Most law firms recognised many years ago that the internet was taking over from traditional marketing channels such as Yellow Pages as the dominant method by which clients find lawyers. They now have a website but very few of these sites bring in a substantial number of new enquiries.

The reason for this is that web design firms are generally just that – designers. Many have little knowledge of how to build a website which actually brings in new business. They will dazzle you with their beautiful designs, and of course you want a good looking website, but surely the number one priority is to try and make some money out of it.
