For many lawyers, marketing means handing out a few business cards, maybe setting up a website, and that's it -- if you build the firm, they will come. And once you've established a practice and a reputation, this might be enough to keep you afloat.
But it's rare to find a lawyer who doesn't want (or need) more clients. And with a smarter, better-informed marketing plan -- one that accounts for online and offline trends, and one that is customer service-focused -- you will get more clients. The key, though, is to work smarter -- to know marketing and to do it well.
