Many lawyers ask me why bother with Google Plus when they already have pages on Facebook, Twitter and Yelp. I believe every law practice needs Google Plus and should make all of Google’s free services its top priority. Here’s why:
Your Google listing is your company’s most visible asset. Your Plus page is more than a popularity site. Google Plus is a community building platform interconnected to all of Google’s products and services including YouTube, Maps, Photos, Hangouts, Circles and of course Search. A law practice that makes Google Plus their priority will quickly establish their practice as an authority in their field of law. Becoming an authority builds your brand identity and builds trust in your legal expertise. Building authority translates to better audience engagement, better SEO and ultimately more clients.
The golden opportunity hidden in Google Maps.
It’s not too late to start building your brand authority on Google but where does one begin? An easy place to start is Google Maps Street View for a See Inside 360 virtual tour of your law office. Did you know many of your clients including the ones using Facebook, Yelp and Twitter, also use Google Maps to search for local businesses on their mobile devices?
