As an attorney, you already understand the importance of writing excellent legal content. Unfortunately, with all the legal writing you do for your clients, finding time to write content for your website can be difficult. In addition, because many attorneys are focused on "legalese," often times they are not best equipped to write content attractive to potential clients visiting their website.

Making a good impression on a potential client, as well as others in your industry, is one of the most important things you can do to establish and grow your website presence. The words you speak and write make an impression on people with whom you interact. You must also use writing to express your point of view and help clients understand what they get when working with you. The professional impact you make through your writing is an essential part of establishing a strong reputation and authority in your field. The bottom line - great website content provides useful information and encourages clients to choose your firm over others.

Writing well is an important part of marketing your firm, but finding the time to write and implement a content-based website marketing plan is too time consuming for many lawyers. Fortunately, there are options.

Having the Time to Write Well

Writing well takes time. Not only is creating, editing, and proofreading time consuming, so are the initial creative stages of writing. Coming up with ideas to share with website visitors, newsletter readers, and others who read your writing can seem like an overwhelming task. Unfortunately, when this time is not invested, you get little more than junk writing – repurposed content from the Internet, basic information that has little value, and poorly structured sentences and paragraphs that do not make sense. Without time you cannot write well.

Exploring Your Options

It is possible for attorneys to produce quality content to help them grow their practice. You may have strong writers in your office with time to generate topic ideas and author well written material. You can hire a freelance writer to author material for your website or newsletter. If you have time to do some of the writing required to market your business, you can supplement your writing with additional hired services to fill the gaps and generate content ideas.

Understanding the role solid writing plays in marketing your firm and finding a way to produce well written materials is one of the best things you can do for your firm. If you would like to know more about how writing can help you market your practice or you have questions about a writing project you have in mind, schedule a free consultation with Legal Web Design for more information.
