We’ve been around since the early days of search engine marketing. We know it’s a constantly changing craft, and as such, we’re always learning and updating our strategy based on proven techniques that are presented in the expert SEO community. Dan Steiner and Brian Gomez, the founders of Elite Legal Marketing are both avid contributors at numerous marketing and search engine marketing publishers, which means we’re usually the first to know about search engine updates, and often times, have already written articles about them.
We designed Elite to avoid all the common pitfalls of working with a larger agency. No confusing phone systems, ill-trained account managers, rotating staff members, and usually, average service at best.
Here at Elite, we prefer to form close, long-term relationships with our clients, keeping a constant line of communication open at all times. Our clients are never treated like “just another account.”
We believe the greatest form of flattery is through client referrals. Elite is around to this day because of our track record and reputation, not our advertising budget.
Google Map can be tricky. A great Google Listing will help potential clients find your law firm more easily online. We’ve spent years studying all of the little things that go into an epic Google Listing. Through experience, we’ve also identified things that don’t help, or even harm your Google Listing. If you want to ensure your business shows up in Google’s Map 3-Pack, we’d love to help!
Your law firm should only have one, consistent online identity. It’s easy to create a mess, through business re-locations, phone number changes, and normal growth. But, if you want Google’s attention, you need to use the same NAP – Name, Address, Phone Number – everywhere you’re mentioned online. Patrolling the internet for inconsistent business information is time consuming. We use advanced software to help us quickly find errors, and then manually check thousands (yes, thousands) of citation websites.. Let us do the heavy-lifting, while you focus on running your law firm.
We're some of the best technical SEO experts in the business. Why? Because we actually understand the technology behind every website. Where other law firm SEO agencies fall flat, we're able to come in and find problems that would otherwise go unnoticed. Our websites incorporate all the fancy technical stuff that you'll need to be successful in the eyes of Google, and other search engines. From under the hood, to the way your site looks and functions, it will be setup properly.
Links from the right sites can help your website show up in Google’s search results and local map. But spammy links will get your site the wrong kind of attention – causing you to disappear. Our law firm SEO strategy is unparalleled in executing link-building strategies that get your site the attention of high-quality websites. We combine content marketing, publicity and local engagement to help you outperform the competition online. Once the basics are in place, your local SEO strategy needs quality links to deliver maximum ROI.
Your clients, and Google, pay a lot of attention to your online reviews. In fact, negative reviews can completely decimate even the best SEO strategy. Unfortunately, every business gets a negative review from time to time. Thankfully, the way that you handle a negative online review can actually help you win over new customers. Our agency knows how to help you keep negative reviews to a minimum, by driving genuine, positive reviews to all the right places. We help successful law firms maintain their online reputation with customers and Google – ensuring our SEO strategies deliver big results.
Paid search engine marketing and social ads can generate a massive surge in client intakes – if they’re created and managed properly. Our agency has helped clients effectively manage millions of dollars in ad spend. We know how to balance aggressive tactics with cost-saving execution. We help clients setup call tracking, conversion reporting and other tools to ensure you can carefully track and appreciate how powerful our ad campaigns are – while quickly identifying and stopping underperforming campaigns that are costing you money.
Our battle tested formula has been built over 6+ years working exclusively with attorneys who compete in big cities and extremely competitive markets.
All of our staff is In house which means you get accountable professionals who deliver quality work.
We build the most high quality and authoritative links possible. We’ve scored our clients links from some of the top media outlets in the nation, including HuffingtonPost, Inc, American Bar Association (ABA), and many others. Simply put, we build links that pack a serious punch.
Monthly reports showing every task completed by us for your firm which we are happy to explain when needed so you can trust we are hard at work getting firm results.
We’ll never work with two competing law firms, so if your competition calls us, we tell them we can’t help
Our clients get the results they are looking for, within the reasonable time frame we set out from the beginning.
Lots of trial and error while they figure things out on your dime, while your website sits on page 5 of Google.
Outsourced to multiple (often overseas) companies, which means low quality work that produces erratic and mediocre results.
No link building at all or even worse, tired and lazy tactics like “We submit your site to over a 100 directories”.
No reporting at all or at best a keyword rankings report which tells you very little about the work being done.
“If you have money you can be our client!”, which means you really have no competitive advantage in the event you do get great results.
“If we give it another 3 months I think we should see some improvement.”
Upon engagement, the first tasks we perform are a website and back link audit to ensure we are building on bedrock rather than sand.
Once we have a clear picture of everything affecting your SEO we create a strategy that addresses your challenges and set some clear goals by which we can measure success.
Like anything else, if you want to have success online there are some fundamentals you MUST have to be successful before you attempt advanced techniques. Upon launch of your campaign we go through a labor intensive 125 step setup process that makes sure those key components are in place.
Additionally, we create custom reports based on what's important to you and your campaign and schedule them as frequently as you would like to see them.
Now the real work starts with your monthly SEO campaigns. Though they vary depending on your strategy and service level, every SEO Campaign consists of monthly link building and content that will help your clients to see you as a knowledgeable and credible source to come to when they have questions related to your expertise.
We'd be lying if we told you every campaign we launch immediately sees the projected results in expected time frame but what we can tell you and show you many examples of is our habit of taking weekly and even daily assessments of your campaigns progress and tweaking it to keep your ship sailing toward it's ultimate goal.
“Just an amazing top to bottom experience with Dan, Brian, and the team at Elite Legal Marketing. I can’t speak highly enough about both my experience working with them as well as the finished product of my firm’s website. The finished product is what most care about and it speaks for itself. Everything I hoped for in terms of what I wanted my website to portray they did so at a level beyond my expectations. It’s an amazing site and I couldn’t be happier with it. Just as important to me is what the experience working with their team was like. It was a pleasure. No other way to put it. Emails were promptly responded to. Phone calls returned. My ideas, concerns, thoughts, etc. were always taken seriously and ultimately reflected in the finished product. There’s nothing about my relationship with the team at Elite Legal Marketing that I would change. I consider myself lucky to have found them and look forward to working w/them in the years ahead.”
Katzner Law Group, PC - Attorney
“Wow! Dan and his crew takes care of business! We run a mid-sized law firm and had contacted other website companies. Across the board they upsold, overpromised and undelivered. We called Dan and he was responsive, gave a straightforward quote with timeline and COMPLETELY DELIVERED THE BEST WEBSITE OUR COMPANY HAS EVER HAD! After the site launched he even helped me with my emails and added a couple extra items to the site. I have had A LOT of compliments on the new site from customers and peers. I cannot recommend these guys enough. It was really nice to get the website and service that he delivered.”
Phillips & Pelly - Managing Partner
“I’ve worked with Brian at Elite for over two years now. You expect any company you bring your business to to be honest, ethical, and to deliver on your expectations. What has set him apart from the numerous other marketing firms that I’ve encountered is that he has always been proactive about modifying our tactics ahead of the competition. He has never once tried to ‘sell’ me on a service, but is truly interested in helping our firm grow.”
Wandres Law - Partner/Attorney
“Elite took over the SEO for my website and Brian and his team got right to work and I immediately saw an increase in performance over the months continued to see improvement. Its meant a lot to my practice and it means a lot to me. I work hard for my money and I appreciate when someone understands that and does their job and does it well.”
The Law Office of W. Andrew Arnold - Attorney
“One of the best marketing decisions I made in my practice was choosing to work with Elite Legal Marketing. After seeing the work they had done for other law firms I decided to turn to them. Before working with Elite, we had marginal success with advertising our practice on the internet. We had tried a few other internet lawyer marketing companies and picked up the occasional client but the business was never consistent. Within a few months of working with Elite, we started to generate new cases as a result of our high ranking on Google and Yahoo. I’d recommend them to any law firm.”
The May Firm - Case Manager
“The guys are Elite Legal Marketing are extremely talented in their field. I’ve gotten a number of compliments from fellow attorneys about my new website, and our search engine marketing campaign is already driving traffic. I’m happy to recommend Elite to anyone looking for an honest and straightforward legal web design and marketing company.”
Robert Hamparyan - Trial Lawyer
“The staff at Elite are hands down the most knowledgeable, talented and honest website design firm I have ever worked with. Finding a solid agency is very difficult and as a consumer/client it is very difficult to know who to choose. I would (and have) recommended Dan to fellow business associates that are looking for high quality design. One thing I really separates Elite from other agencies I have worked with is the level of transparency. You’ll know what was done and what you are paying for. I absolutely recommend Elite Legal Marketing.”
The May Firm - Founder/Attorney
