Most people these days aren’t finding their family law attorney from a television commercial, a billboard, or the yellow pages. They are either referred by a friend or found by everyone’s best friend, Google. In fact, Google helps most people find most things! And since there are so many options at people’s fingertips, it’s important to have something that sets you apart. Having positive reviews (on Google, Facebook, Avvo, etc) is one of those ways.
Unfortunately, it seems we live in a society where people are quick to leave a bad review but aren’t as apt to leave one for a good experience. So, it is up to us to do a little prompting By no means am I an expert at this. In fact, I have just gotten around to getting a website up. But it has become clear to me that it is important to make that ask sometimes to ensure I have some positive reviews popping up when people are searching for a family law attorney.
A blog post I recently found provided some simple yet helpful suggestions on asking for reviews and dealing with negative ones (because let’s be honest, it’s only a matter of time before some former client isn’t happy about something!). If you are wanting to increase your reviews, take a look at this post.
