Chicago, IL (PRWEB) February 16, 2011
With more customers becoming web-savvy, it is imperative for attorneys to have reliable and effective websites, according to BIT Studios (http://www.bitstudios.com), an agency providing web design and internet marketing services in Chicago, IL. According to Brad Johnson of BIT Studios, "More customers are going online to learn about legal firms before calling up an attorney. Today, the era of looking up an attorney in the phone book is over. Customers are Internet-savvy and look online to find reliable attorneys with plenty of experience. Law firms and attorneys without attractive and professional web sites are really at a tremendous disadvantage in this market."
Statistics prove this view. According to some experts, up to 93% of customers do research online before paying for a product or service. As well, customer perceptions of company websites have been proven to have a direct influence on consumer confidence and on consumer behavior. When customers see a company website that they feel is professional and reliable, they are more likely to have a positive association with the company the website it represents, according to polls. When potential customers have a negative reaction to a website, they are less likely to do business with that company, according to studies.
Statistics like these have a significant impact on attorney marketing, according to experts. Since legal services usually are very important to customers and usually represent a sizeable investment, customers are more likely to carefully research potential legal firms and attorneys online before making a decision about representation. Legal firms and attorneys with highly visible and professional websites have a better chance of attracting potential customers, say experts.
Large legal firms know this and have sizeable online marketing budgets to raise awareness about their brand through websites, blogs, and social network marketing. Smaller legal firms have traditionally had only two options:
1) Very expensive customized websites and online marketing plans
2) Pre-made template sites that offer a low price but also fail to look professional.
At BIT Studios (http://www.bitstudios.com), designers have developed a third solution for legal clients. The company's new service, Law Firm Web Design & Marketing, is specifically designed for small and medium-sized legal firms and for attorneys with more modest budgets. The service allows legal clients to buy a fully-functioning and professional website for a low price. All the sites are professionally designed with easy-to-use layouts and attention to conversion as well as search engine visibility.
The sites feature well organized content structure, blogs, RSS newsfeeds, fast load times, and more - providing attorneys and legal firms with everything they need to get their marketing message online.
The Law Firm Web Design & Marketing service is ideal for new small and medium-sized legal firms needing a new professional web presence and for existing legal service companies requiring a web site overhaul.
With the Law Firm Web Design & Marketing service from BIT (http://www.bitstudios.com), a legal site can be launched in as little as 7-10 days and comes in two pricing categories: A $1000 site package with more modest features and a website for under $1500 with a few more additions. Both packages include free SEO setup to ensure good search engine visibility.
For ultimate search engine visibility and traffic legal clients have the option of buying monthly search engine promotion for up to seven keywords for $399 monthly. With both packages, Law Firm Web Design & Marketing offers top-tier customer service support and a commitment to helping legal companies meet their marketing goals.
