The Solo Practitioner’s Guide to Websites

Working as a solo practitioner provides unique challenges. Although you get to be your own boss, you also have to manage your employees – whether you’re the only one or whether you also have support staff. You get to make all the decisions, but then you inevitably second-guess them. You get to set your own hours. However, those hours, more often than not, are longer than they would be if you worked for someone else.

One of the many things a solo practitioner has little time for is marketing. It can be extremely difficult to make time to attract new clients while you’re trying to do top-quality work for the clients you already have. Skipping marketing when you’re busy isn’t a great idea. Your current work will run out eventually and you probably won’t be able to afford to spend several weeks looking for new clients.

This is where a quality website can help.

With professional help and just a few hours of work, you can create a website that will announce to all visitors that you are open for business. It can advertise your areas of expertise. And, tell potential clients why you’re the best attorney for their needs. As well as giving them an easy way to set up an appointment or ask you a question.

Even better, with the right web design company working for you, your website can quickly climb up the search engine results, so that your firm’s name is presented boldly near or at the top of the first page of search results when potential clients in your area search for an attorney with your skills.

A solo practitioner can’t afford to spend hours every day looking for new clients. Your website, however, doesn’t sleep, doesn’t ask for time off, and will keep working for you while you spend time with your family.
