    Episode 360 – From Potential to Paying Clients: The Key is to Follow Up – Even on Your Follow-Ups

    Most attorneys who aren’t hired right after an initial consultation will just count their losses and move on. If Richard Jacobs had done that, Speakeasy Marketing simply wouldn’t exist.
    What do we do that our competitors don’t?
    We not only understand the value and impact of following up with potential clients, but we also do it for our attorney clients as an add-on to our call answering and conversion service.
    In this episode, you’ll learn roughly how much money you’re throwing away for every potential client that you don’t follow up with.
    It’s one of the simplest and smartest decisions you can make for your practice.

    Episode 359 - Knowing Your Ideal Clients on a Deeper Level, Before You Even Meet Them

    Episode 359 - Knowing Your Ideal Clients on a Deeper Level, Before You Even Meet Them

    Regardless of your practice area, we have the tools to provide you with a clear picture from the inside of your ideal client’s mind.
    Through our attorney call answering and conversion service, we have taken well over 10,000 calls from potential clients in every practice area, and we’re growing at a pace of about 5,000 calls per week. Before long, we’ll have hundreds of thousands of calls to study so we can’t answer critical questions with ease.
    For example, what do DUI callers fear most? What are the top three questions asked by almost every bankruptcy or family law caller? What are estate planning callers looking for in an attorney? Once we have this information, we can conduct even deeper analyses to extract more pertinent information for optimizing your online presence.
    This means you'll receive real, tested advice on what to include – and not include – on every page of your website.
    Curious about how we can help your practice?
    Don’t hesitate to call (888) 225-8594 or visit https://www.speakeasymarketinginc.com/.

    Episode 358 – 10,000 Calls and Climbing Quickly: What We’re Learning From Our Call Answering and Conversion Service, and How It Will Benefit You

    Episode 358 – 10,000 Calls and Climbing Quickly: What We’re Learning From Our Call Answering and Conversion Service, and How It Will Benefit You

    Having taken well over 10,000 calls from potential clients in every practice area, our call answering and conversion service is doing something else critically important: using these calls as information mines by carefully analyzing client behaviors, desires, questions, and needs. Why?
    Because knowing how your potential clients think and feel enables us to guide your marketing strategies in the smartest way possible.
    Consider, for example, that nearly 50% of callers seeking criminal defense advice have the same question: "Can my case be dropped?"
    Depending on the case, the answer might be no, or yes, or maybe … but all that matters is that every potential client who asks themselves this question can click on your website and find some sort of answer.
    Not a day goes by that we aren’t learning something new and sharing it with you.

    Episode 357 - Money Talks: Does a Call Conversion Service Make Financial Sense For You?

    Episode 357 - Money Talks: Does a Call Conversion Service Make Financial Sense For You?

    What’s the average fee you collect for an average case?
    How many valid potential new clients (PNCs) are calling your firm each month?
    Of those, how many end up hiring you and paying your retainer fee each month?
    These three questions can help you determine whether Speakeasy Marketing’s call conversion service makes financial sense for you.
    Let’s say your average fee for an ordinary case is $2,500.
    Now, let’s look at Speakeasy Marketing’s call conversion service prices:
    - About $900/month for basic gold service
    - About $1,700/month for top platinum service
    The numbers tell us that in order for our service to make financial sense for you, we’d only need to convert ONE additional potential client per month into a paying client for you.
    Considering the quality and expertise of our call conversion service team, this is hardly a feat to accomplish. Here are just a few things we’ll do for you:
    Never let a single call go to voicemail. Our interests are aligned with yours: our reps get a bonus for every call that turns into a paying client of yours. It’s about quality, not quantity. Apply the nuances of different practice areas you serve. Ask PNCs the right questions so you have the answers you need. Build rapport with PNCs so they begin trusting you before they even meet you. Distinguish between viable PNCs and tire kickers. Stay up to date with the newest trends in various practice areas by learning from our massive phone call data bank – this translates to knowing how to communicate with a wide range of PNCs. A general call answering service can’t accomplish anywhere near what this service can, because their representatives simply aren’t trained accordingly.
    Ready to be THE lawyer PNCs want to hire?
    We’re about to take on a new cohort of 10-12 attorney clients.
    Check your email on Monday morning, June 20 for a special offer, more details, and a link to the registration page.

    Episode 356 - From Call Answering to Call Conversion: The Key to a Booming Law Firm

    Episode 356 - From Call Answering to Call Conversion: The Key to a Booming Law Firm

    Every potential new client (PNC) who calls your firm is dealing with some form of pain, whether emotional, physical, or both – this is irrefutable.
    As an attorney, it’s your job to find legal solutions for lessening that pain. And as a call conversion service for attorneys, it’s our job to handle every single call to your firm with the knowledge, patience, and compassion every PNC is looking for.
    This is about way more than just answering the phone – it’s about answering to PNC fears, needs, concerns, goals, and questions. It’s about making them feel understood and hopeful within the first 5 minutes of speaking to us.
    By the time a PNC gets to you, they will already have confidence in your ability to help them, and this makes a world of difference for everyone.
    What Speakeasy Marketing’s Call Conversion Service Can Do For You:
    Ø  Answer every call, always.
    Ø  No conflict of interest: our reps get a bonus for every call that turns into a paying client of yours. It’s about quality, not quantity.
    Ø  Know and apply the nuances of different practice areas you serve.
    Ø  Ask PNCs excellent, qualifying questions.
    Ø  Build a strong connection with PNCs so they begin trusting you before they even meet you.
    Ø  Identify good vs. tire kicker clients.
    Ø  Utilize a massive amount of data from thousands of similar calls to know what to say, when to say it, and how to say it.
    The value of a call conversion service compared to a general, run-of-the-mill answering service cannot be overstated.
    This coming Tuesday, we’re opening our doors to an additional cohort of 10-12 new attorney clients, and we’re running a special offer – learn the details in the next episode.

    Episode 355 - Golden Tip for Client Conversion Lies in the Golden Arches

    Episode 355 - Golden Tip for Client Conversion Lies in the Golden Arches

    What do fast food restaurants have to do with law firms?
    It’s not churning out as much low-quality product as quickly as possible. But it IS about taking customer orders as soon as possible when there’s a long line. Whether it’s multiple ordering stations along the way, or an employee walking out to your car directly, this strategy accomplishes two things:
    1)    It makes the customer feel they are being well taken care of.
    2)    It “locks” in the customer; once they’re in that line and they’ve given their order, they aren’t going anywhere until they get what they came for.
    Nowadays, people want stuff on demand, and your potential new clients (PNCs) are no exception. The biggest mistake you can make, as an attorney, is not giving it to them.
    This is especially true now that everyone’s equipped with a smartphone and the ability to call 10 different law firms in the span of 5 minutes.
    If you don’t answer the phone the first time a PNC calls, you’ve likely missed a potentially great new client; by the time you see the missed call, that PNC will be well on their way to a different attorney.
    And all the ad money you spent on attracting that one PNC? Well that’s gone too.
    Here’s the Solution:
    It’s not enough to ensure your phones are answered by “someone”: your phones need to be answered by someone who can take PNC “orders” by:
    ü  Initiating the intake process
    ü  Asking great qualifying questions specific to your practice area
    ü  Building rapport
    ü  Listening, so the PNC feels understood
    ü  Identifying viable vs. “tire kicker” PNCs
    ü  Creating confidence in the PNC that YOU are the attorney they need
    You don’t need a call answering service: you need a call conversion service. And Speakeasy Marketing can be that for you.
    We’ve taken well over 10,000 calls this year for attorneys in various practice areas, and by the end of the year, that number will be 10x greater. We are learning more and more every day about what your ideal clients are looking for, how they are feeling, and how to make sure they go from potential to PAYING clients.
    Play the next episode for more details on what sets Speakeasy Marketing’s call conversion service apart from call answering services.
