Start the New Year Out Right: Expand Your Online Marketing with Niche Practice Websites

You’ve been thinking about marketing for awhile… Stop procrastinating and start putting your New Year’s Resolutions into action. Clients are searching the web every day to find the perfect attorney for their particular situation. Niche practice websites show potential clients your firm’s expertise in one practice area rather than diluting your focus.  This gives them more confidence in your abilities.  For example, if you practice family law, you might have a website devoted just to adoption issues or surrogacy.  This shows your focus on keeping the family together rather than having content and images about divorce and custody battles.

Multiple websites also help with the optimization game since the sites link to your main website and to one another. Inbound links help your placement on major search engines, such as Google.  Though it might take some time to prove to the Search Engine Gods that your new site is viable, once this is done, all of your sites will benefit.  The sooner the process gets started, the better for a return on your investment.

Niche practice websites are also great for using a keyword-rich domain name. A personal injury main practice site may have a name such as SmithLaw.com, and the niche sites would be OrlandoCarAccident.com or FloridaBrainInjury.com. The keywords in the domain name also help with the optimization process. The registration of a domain is inexpensive and can have value in the future.

Niche practice websites can target specific geographic regions.  Not only is it difficult to focus on a broad area (like your home state), but people are more likely to search for an attorney in a particular city or town.  These websites show that you are local, which will appeal more to potential clients.  You can even have websites for multiple cities that focus on a single practice area (such as Dallas, Fort Worth, Arlington, and Richardson for workers comp).

The creation of a conglomerate of websites for your firm helps to create a large community that you have control over.  The interlinking of the sites will help push them all up in the search engine rankings.  Let me caution you that multiple websites all must contain unique content.   You run the risk of getting blocked by Google if multiple sites share the same text, even with small variations.
