Lawyers.com Profile Redesign Enables Improved User Engagement
At Martindale-Hubbell, we’ve just made your Lawyers.com profile more attractive — and more powerful. Our goal in redesigning your profile page was to make it as accessible as possible to potential clients, with an open and inviting layout and user-friendly navigation. By emphasizing client reviews, videos, and attorney photos, Lawyers.com profile pages offer users the same type of engagement that other popular social media sites offer. For example, as online feedback now serves as a vital marketing tool, we have simplified the review function to make it easier for you to promote your strong track record.
To boost the effectiveness of the Lawyers.com profiles, Neil Sainani, Internet Brands vice president of product management, relied on extensive customer input for the new design. He coordinated the efforts of individuals from across the Martindale-Nolo Legal Marketing Network to create a more active platform. Specific advances that will improve your ability to reach prospects include:
- Ensuring that the Contact Us widget is always accessible to profile viewers. People will no longer have to search or scroll the page to contact you. The updated widget “floats” with the user so they can start a conversation with just one click.
- Customizing practice area searches to reduce confusion. Now, when someone enters one of your legal practice areas in a search, it is highlighted in the result rather than appearing as one item in a list.
- Enhancing and tailoring the presentation for both mobile and desktop users. The redesign not only looks and works well in both formats, but your outreach is specifically geared to the device used by the prospect: a phone number on smartphones and a contact form on desktops.
Our companywide commitment to increasing your marketing potential does not stop there. As we track the performance of the flexible new platform, we can make adjustments quickly to increase the site’s effectiveness.
Beta testing results and the response to the redesign launch have been highly positive. Though the work continues, the new profiles are a major step toward the goal set by Neil Sainani’s team to generate the personal connections that are increasingly necessary to reach potential clients.
