In our industry, these qualities are very hard to find, and they matter.
We will always keep you informed on exactly what we’re working on. If you have questions, we’re happy to answer them, without sales jargon.
As long as you’re an Elite client, we’ll never work with two competing law firms, so if your competition calls us, we tell them we can’t help.
Our battle tested formula has been built over 10+ years working exclusively with attorneys who compete in big cities and extremely competitive markets.
Our clients get results they expect. No excuses or false promises. We believe in setting clear expectations and ensuring they are met.
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 Law Firm SEO strategy based on proven techniques that are presented in the expert SEO community. Elite Legal Marketing SEO specialists are 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.
See how Elite has helped our existing clients dominate their market areas.
“Truly interested in helping our firm grow. I’ve worked with Brian at Elite for over 6 years now. You expect any company you bring your business, 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.”
“It was a pleasure. No other way to put it. Emails were promptly responded to. Phone calls returned. Just an amazing top to bottom experience with 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 … 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 ...
“Elite Legal Marketing has far surpassed our previous online marketing agency (Findlaw) in every way, from their service oriented approach and transparency to the results our practice has seen, I cannot recommend any online marketing company as highly as I would recommend Elite for lawyers who really want to break through in their market. I cannot recommend any online marketing company as highly as I would recommend Elite.”
“Elite Legal Marketing is a best-in-class agency. Beyond that, their business ethics are exemplary. Holly Davis and I have worked with them for the better part of a decade and they never, never failed to deliver.”
“I am a solo practicing divorce attorney in Annapolis, Maryland. I have worked with Brian at Elite Legal Marketing for about 2 years. Before switching to Brian, for the previous 6 or so years, I had worked with other web marketing firms, including Scorpion, with inconsistent and usually frustrating results. After switching to Brian, my results became consistently solid. Brian delivers what he promises, and I couldn’t be happier. First he built for me an amazing website. Then he worked t...
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!
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.
Your law firm should only have one, consistent online identity across lawyer directories and general business directories. 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.
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.
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.
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.
There’s a lot of law firm SEO agencies making promises to lawyers that they cannot keep. Here are just a few examples of how we are different:
Our battle tested formula has been built over 6+ years working exclusively with attorneys who compete in big cities and extremely competitive markets.
Lots of trial and error while they figure things out on your dime, while your website sits on page 5 of Google.
All of our staff is In house which means you get accountable professionals who deliver quality work.
Outsourced to multiple companies, which means low quality work that produces erratic and mediocre results.
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.
No link building at all or even worse, tired and lazy tactics like “We submit your site to over a 100 directories”.
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.
No reporting at all or at best a keyword rankings report which tells you very little about the work being done.
We’ll never work with two competing law firms, so if your competition calls us, we tell them we can’t help
“If you have money you can be our client!”, which means you rhave no advantage in the event you do get great results.
Our clients get the results they are looking for, within the reasonable time frame we set out from the beginning.
“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.
With the dozens of law firms we have worked with, every single one had some issue or challenge that made it unique. So rather than taking a cookie cutter approach for every client, we keep an open mind during this process to ensure we accurately diagnose your problems.
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.
Some of these fundamentals we address in the setup process are; your firm’s Google listing, website page load speed, on page SEO, creating listings on every quality legal directory and ensuring analytics and conversion tracking are giving us reliable information.
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.
A key component to Elite’s SEO services that we cannot stress enough, is the QUALITY of the links that we build for our clients. Link building is very time intensive, tedious and requires that you think outside of the box at all times which is why most SEO companies either do a poor job or pay for cheap links that can and will eventually hurt you.
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.
A habit many SEO professionals have is being over confident in their process and making adjustments too late. While we have supreme confidence in our strategies and tactics we also are humble in our approach to SEO and understand that it’s really about results – namely, that if you aren’t getting them, it’s time to make an adjustment.
