Grow Your Firm Online with These Strategies
1 – Know and target your audience.
As you start to grow your firm online, the first step will be to focus on who your target audience is and how you can reach them. If your firm or business has been up and running for some time, this should be a relatively easy aspect of the process, as you will likely know your target audience fairly well. If not, however, take some time to think about who will need your business’ services or products and when they would be reaching out for you for them.
Identifying your target audience upfront can be critical to:
- Developing an effective design for your website
- Pinpointing whether your site needs new content
- Developing other tools for your site, like “click to talk” dialogue options, email forms, etc.
2 – Develop high-quality, original, personalized content for your target audience.
What your prospective clients read when they first get to your website is important, as it can make the difference between whether these people immediately click off and leave your site versus whether they read more and end up responding to your call-to-action (whether that be calling you, emailing you, signing up for a newsletter, etc.).
To this end, it’s critical that the content on your firm’s site is not only well written and free from any typos but that it is also:
- Specifically personalized to your target audience
- Original, as copying already published content can get you in trouble both with a prospective audience and with search engines.
Such personalized content can include (but is not necessarily limited to):
- Traditional content pages, such as those that explain your firm’s services or products
- Blogs, which can be informal and can be based on any topics related to the business of your firm
- Videos and photos, which can be as compelling as written content and can further help optimize your site while providing another way of delivering your message to prospective clients.
