The Legal Toolkit

Online Reviews: Yelp for Help

December 16, 201527 min
Online review sites are increasingly important for product and service consumers, but to what extent are people really taking them into consideration when selecting an attorney? If potential clients are counting stars before they call, how do lawyers take control of their online reputations? Furthermore, with limited time and marketing budgets, what should solo and small firms focus on?
On this episode of The Legal Toolkit, Jared Correia interviews Jabez LeBret, co-founder of the digital marketing agency Get Noticed Get Found, about how lawyers can and should monitor their online reviews, how to respond to negative feedback, and ways to increase positive reviews where they matter.
Topics include:

General consumers' interest in online reviews
Get stars to get calls
The hierarchy of your online marketing budget
Ethical responsibility of review content
Who to send to Google, Yelp, and Avvo
Two types of clients who leave anonymous reviews
Checking your pride at the door when responding
Collecting and analyzing data to determine what’s effective
