Potential clients may be anywhere along the buyer’s journey when they discover your website. They might still be learning about their problem, or they could already be looking for an attorney.

It’s important to convert clients when they visit your website and convince them to call your office or fill out the submission form. Even if you provide visitors with a lot of useful information about their problem, if you don’t convert them, they probably won’t return to your site.Analysts analyzing market.
