For law firms, a great website can mean the difference between enticing new visitors on a regular basis or having people click off and go elsewhere. It can take, on average, less than six seconds for someone to make up their mind about your website - so first impressions are important.
The main purpose of your website is to work, on your firm's behalf, to be your 24/7 salesperson and turn visitors into leads and leads into clients. A few questions you should ask yourself when looking at your website are:
- "Is it eye-catching and interesting?"
- "Can it help visitors find what they're looking for?"
- "Will someone easily be able to find their way around to relevant pages?"
- "Is it optimised for mobile?"
- "Is it aimed at my target audience?"
If the answer is "no" to any of these, don't worry! Digital Media Stream are here to help you make those much needed improvements and turn your website into a lead generation machine that retains interest and keeps your visitors coming back for more.
