Local Services Ads for Employment Lawyers

Picture the synergy of SEO and Google Ads giving rise to a revolutionary offspring – Local Services Ads (LSA) or Google Screened ads. In the highly competitive legal sector, where online visibility and lead conversion present hurdles for small solo law firms, a breakthrough emerges. Enter Google Local Service Ads, also known as “Google Guaranteed” or “LSAs.” Having actively participated in this program since its initiation in the legal sphere, we’ve witnessed its seismic impact on the legal Search Engine Results Page (SERPs). Before you take the leap, let’s lay the groundwork for navigating this platform and understanding the basics.

How are Local Services Ads Important to Your Legal Marketing Strategy?

Given the financial constraints faced by most employment law firms, the necessity for diversified strategies ensuring a steady lead flow cannot be overstated. Local Services Ads (LSAs) offer a strategic solution by effectively balancing performance and budget considerations. LSAs empower law firms to “dispute” leads not meeting specific criteria, with Google refunding qualifying disputes. This strategic approach ensures the optimization of both lead volume and quality within budgetary constraints. LSAs mark a significant departure as Google’s first “performance-based” paid platform – transitioning from paying per click to paying per lead. Distinct from traditional Google Ads/PPC, LSAs prominently feature at the top of search results, eclipsing Google Ads/PPC, organic listings, and map results. Payment solely for qualified leads results in a varying cost per lead, influenced by competition and bids in your practice area. For personalized estimates, reach out to us.

The Nifty Approach to Lawyer Local Services Ads

Having engaged with numerous law firm owners, we’ve encountered many who carry the scars of poorly executed paid campaigns. If skepticism looms large, rest assured, you’re not treading this path alone! The reality is, you might not need an agency’s intervention. If your in-house team is committed to managing this channel, they could potentially handle the lead processing aspect. However, before you venture into the realm independently, consider the nuanced details of various account considerations. From tackling Google’s setup challenges to grappling with lead processing intricacies, it’s a multifaceted landscape. We offer a free, helpful sheet to aid you in tracking LSA lead attribution, disputes, and management – simply reach out for access. Yet, be mindful, effective management can be time-intensive, and not all employees may adeptly follow the protocols, risking substantial amounts with each lead valued between $40-200+. The key is to sidestep the pitfall of “tripping over a dollar to pick up a dime.”

With no connection to the area, Joshua Goldstein moved to Boston to attend law school in 1994 and never left. Over time, he built a successful firm with a stellar reputation. He had it all. But after a brutal winter in 2015, Josh decided enough was enough and that it was time to relocate to Los Angeles where he had been considering moving to for years.

The team at Naqvi Injury law has more leads than ever and an ever expanding team to take on the increased workload. In fact, the team has grown from 11 people in 2013 to over 70 people today. The firm will soon be opening a second office and are already looking into options for a third.

The results from this campaign are the outcome of both Nifty and Farhan being willing to push the envelope, try new things and take calculated risks. This is why we have worked with Naqvi Injury Law for 6+ years with many more to come.

AN INCREASE OF 550%

IN MONTHLY BRANDED SEARCH VOLUME

In January 2018 Walthew’s branded search volume accounted for only 8% of overall traffic. 12 months later that number had grown to 24%, and by June 2019 that number had risen to 47%.

While a 550% increase in the branded search volume was certainly impressive, the Nifty team wanted to prove the true value of social ads. A closer look at search ads lead volume (with no budget changes) revealed that lead volume had increased 85% compared to the same time frame before and after social ads.
