You also know that one of the best ways to serve your clients is to keep them informed and up-to-date on the latest developments. But how can you do that effectively and efficiently in a way that gets you more clients?
Enter digital marketing.
By harnessing the power of the internet, you can reach more people with your message and better help them navigate the complicated world of immigration law — especially with countless immigration scams out there.
We’ve already talked about why immigration lawyers need to start using digital marketing.
In this blog post, we’ll share some tips on how to use digital marketing to make your practice more accessible to prospective immigrants — and make prospects more receptive to becoming your clients.
Knowing who your target audience is the start of any marketing campaign.
Growing a successful business, blog, or social media profile boils down to knowing your target audience. It’s important for you to get crystal clear about who you are talking to so that your messaging will be relevant, interesting, and resonant.
Define your target audience by asking yourself some questions:
Answer these questions and you’ll be able to create a detailed “buyer persona” of exactly the type of person who is interested in your services. The archetypal “buyer personas” for your immigration practice could be the immigrant themselves, their spouse, their employer — you get the idea.
Choosing the right channel to market your immigration law firm online can make a huge impact in achieving your goals.
That involves more than just clicking on the first five tools you come across on Google; it takes careful consideration, research and analysis.
With digital marketing channels, you’re really spoiled for choice. You could use any combination of:
There are many more — don’t feel constrained by what everyone else is or isn’t doing. Instead, consider which are consistent with your brand identity.
Because you already understand your target audience, you also know which channels will reach them effectively. And as you gain experience conducting marketing campaigns, you’ll be able to track which channels are most effective for your firm.
It’s hard to stand out in the world of content marketing, especially when hundreds of other law firms are saying the same thing.
First of all, you have to research what content has already been published in your niche — and by whom.
Your content needs to either:
Say you’re researching blog posts from your competitors on “mistakes to avoid on your adjustment of status application.” The top three Google results are blog posts about “5 mistakes to avoid on your adjustment of status application.”
This is a perfect opportunity to write about 7, or even 10 mistakes to avoid.
While conducting your research, pay particular attention to the content’s structure, aims, approach and reviews. Make notes on the key features you find successful. For example:
Then, use those as a guide for creating your own high-quality content.
Achieving success in a competitive field can be difficult, but it’s not impossible — even for attorneys. If you want to stand out from the crowd there are several approaches you can take.
Are your competitors creating in-depth blog posts that you think would be difficult to beat? Consider marketing to your prospects by video instead.
Are your competitors doing video, too? Then consider engaging with prospects via social media.
Can’t hope to compete with social? Well, what if you could take the top-ranking search spots from your competitors?
Struggling with search? Then how well would a website redesign help you?
Any digital marketing issue you face likely has dozens of solutions. It’s all about standing out from the competition.
Creating a digital marketing strategy for immigration lawyers can be a daunting task, but it’s essential to set yourself up for success.
Taking the time to plan out your content in advance ensures that your messaging is targeted, consistent, and relevant. Your content and website should also meet the needs of your audience and draw them in.
That means understanding who they are, what their interests are, and what message resonates with them best. Once you have a clear understanding of this, you can craft content that speaks directly to them — building relationships one word at a time.
Whether you opt for local, organic or paid search, you must ensure that you’re targeting the right keywords and locations to reach the prospects who are most interested in what you offer.
While immigration lawyers can handle clients from all over the globe, remember that Google loves local businesses.
Starting with low-hanging fruit around your geographical area may be the best place to start.
Not everyone who visits your website will contact you, and not everyone who contacts you will become a new client — not right away, at least.
It’s well-known that most prospects needs multiple interactions with your business before they decide to retain your services. By figuring out your lead follow-up process early (hopefully with email automation and retargeting ads), you’ll be able to convert a higher number of leads into clients.
Taking action on any part of your marketing plan is daunting, especially when you’ve never done marketing before.
Tracking your progress keeps you motivated and helps determine how well the plan is working for you — whether you’re trying to boost your search presence or your conversion rate.
