DESCRIPTION

According to a 2016 survey, 84% of people trust online reviews as much as personal recommendations. Just take a look at sites such as Amazon and TripAdvisor where reviews are clearly a major key to success. The same holds true for law firms—when you have positive online reviews, you have a tremendous opportunity to gain new business. On the flip side, a bad review or lack of reviews can greatly hurt your chances of earning a potential client’s trust. In this webinar, we’ll discuss what online reviews mean for your business and how to ethically get as many positive reviews as possible.

Learning Objectives:

  • Understand the online review landscape and find out how to ethically solicit online reviews.
  • Learn how to also get reviews without even having to ask.
  • Discover how to leverage positive reviews by getting them placed on multiple sites.
  • Find out how to protect yourself from negative reviews.
  • Hear how to ethically respond to all reviews to illustrate your professionalism and to promote your skills and your firm even further.
