How to Effectively Increase Your Law Firm’s Client Intake

Developing effective intake processes at a law practice is a critical first step to increasing client numbers and law firm revenue. As the digital world further evolves into a digital/mobile world, law firms must compete to stay in the game. As potential clients search the internet from their home computers and mobile devices hoping to find the right legal match for their case, law firms must be ready to quickly vet, optimize, and track all incoming calls and web inquiries so as not to lose a lead.  

If your firm’s phones are ringing off the hook, website traffic is steady and leads are robust, you may feel confident that your firm is profiting.  However, that is not always the case. Today’s digital-age consumer has come to expect immediate response satisfaction and if your response rate is slow and impersonal, chances are your lead/conversion rate is not what it could be.

Thriving law offices recognize that the initial contact with a prospective client often determines the viability of a case. Law firm leadership must therefore ensure that the intake process and all stages of the client experience are managed effectively and in a way that personalizes the interaction and makes your firm stand out from the competition. The dedication will result in higher ROI from improved conversion rates for signed clients.

So how can your law firm streamline its lead intake process so it can take on more cases and increase revenue?  How can you integrate your website to capture all leads and cultivate maximum engagement? Did you know that text messaging of leads and Email Drip Campaigns can significantly increase your conversion rate?

For legal teams that are ready to take their firm to the next level, legal case management software is often a priority. With so many software programs available on the market, it is important to find a system with innovative and intuitive features to fit your firm’s needs.
Before deciding on any particular brand of software, make some important comparisons using these top 10 considerations when choosing your legal case management software:

  1. Will it turn leads into clients and help grow the firm?
  2. Will it manage your client relationships and empower your staff?
  3. Is case information easily accessible through a centralized database?
  4. Does your firm need a cloud-based or on-premises suite?
  5. Does the system offer ready-to-use templates that seamlessly integrate with your website?
  6. Are there marketing analytics for quick assessment of your marketing efforts and ROI?
  7. Is there customized and automated management of deadlines and reminders?
  8. Will it track, log, and stores details about phone calls and case expenses?
  9. Does it import and organize the contacts online and offline with tagging and segmentation to maximize lead/intake contact management?
  10. Is there an easy-to-use self-training dashboard?
