Does your website create business for your firm? Join us in Port Elizabeth for a morning session on the 4th October 2012 – the way your website works now will be turned upside down!
In this morning’s interactive TechShare session we will tackle the fundamental necessities needed to create and maintain a successful website for a law firm.
It astounds me when attorneys ask me why there website doesn't generate any new or recurring business for their firm. But right from the start, the website has been created like all other commercial websites, no fault of the web designer, but the law firm is to blame for not knowing what they or their customers require from a practical law firm website.
Topics that will be covered:
• Why is the law firm website different to what web designers deliver?
• How do you identify the criteria?
• Correcting the focus.
• What are the key aspects of a law firm website?
• Who should be involved in the design and creation of a law firm website?
• You get what you pay for!
• Social media on and related to a web site
• Live reports
• Domain names and pricing
• ADSL internet bandwidth pricing
• Blogs – are they needed, do they work, should they be part of a web site, who should blog etc.
• How do you create value from your web site?
• What are the fair prices to pay for web site hosting?
• Backup of your web site
• Local vs International web site hosting
• Once the site is up, who and how should it be maintained?
• Content Management Systems
• Workshops of your own web site – if you are bold enough to take constructive criticism
• Practice examples of good, bad and ugly law firm websites.
So as you can see there is plenty to discuss and gather to perfect the core focus of your law firm web site.
