The moment a user visits your website, a great way to connect with them is via the introductory video. It makes the user experience very personal and it is your first chance to make an impression on them and introduce them to your legal company. You could show members of your firm, your client base, case studies or just a general overview of your core offerings. Creating your first impression has a powerful impact from the moment they land on your page.

Use Webinars to Attract Your New Clients

Webinars (online seminars) are a unique way to build a relationship with potential clients; you provide them with a personal and interactive way of building a relationship with you, establishing rapport before you meet face-to-face. Organising webinars is a great way to establish, or increase your online identity and build a great community.

These webinars can be uploaded to your YouTube channel and sent out via newsletters or on your blog and converted into PDFs. There are numerable ways you can engage video to help your law firm.

Create an Online Educational Video Library

It’s no good making one video and leaving it there. As with anything digital, you have to keep doing it for it to work to its maximum ability and to your benefit. It is key to maintain an online identity by regularly uploading videos to your channel. We recommend you release 1 video per week, it can be from 1 minute to 3 minutes long – it can be based on the latest things going on in your firm and converting any articles into video. Use your imagination but be relevant and concise.

In your production process you can film 5 to 10 videos in one go, to make the process as efficient and less time consuming as possible. It’s important your editor/producer creates an "intro" and "outro" for your videos to help build your legal brand identity and give your videos a slick finish. You can then market the video to be released once a week or as often as you feel is needed.

Make sure you add your Videos to your Social Media

Video can be shared in so many ways. Most social media platforms nowadays have an extensive outreach to potential clients and audiences and is dominant in the Internet community for sharing information. The videos you produce can be posted on sites such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn just to name a few.

And finally....

Create call to actions, keep a track of the results such as engagement and use analytics such as Google Analytics to help you keep track of this. It’s vital to measure the videos impact on your website, so you know where to improve, re-record or do more.
