What People want to know when they check out your Attorney Website

Most attorney’s think that what their visitors are looking for on their attorney website is

  • “Which college did you attend?
  • “How expensive are you?”
  • “What seals, certificates, and  degrees have you earned”?

But what people are really looking to know is:

  • “Can you perform the exact service I need”?
  • “Are you approachable and easy to work with”?
  • “Will you answer my phone calls if we work together”?

These are good things to keep in mind when designing a website.  As you can see, what the attorney thinks is important for the client to know usually differs greatly from what the client is asking in his head. For your attorney website to be effective, your prospective client must believe that you care about their situation enough not only  to do a quality job representing them, but reaching out to them and listening.

How to Enable the “Follow” feature on your Word Press blog.

Did you know that a lot of people run across your blog on the WordPress platform?

And did you know that a lot of those people would love to “follow” your blog. But they can’t because you haven’t enabled the “following” setting.

Here’s how you do it.

From you dashboard, go to Settings.  Click on it. You should see a drop down menu (it might display on the side of the tab, rather than “dropping down”). Hover your mouse over the Word discussions and left click. A page will display, labeled, “Discussions”. On the left hand column will be a series of choices, with check boxes. Scroll down to find the option that says “Follow Blog”. It must say “Follow Blog” and not something similar.

Click on the check box, and don’t forget to save your settings.

Settings > Discussions> Follow blog.

That’s the sequence you need to click in order to enable your fans, like myself, to follow your blog.

Once you do, we will all be able to follow your blog and read your latest post in our reader.

Happy Blogging!

 

How to Follow My Blog

If you like my blog, and want to “follow” it, you just need to click on the “follow” tab. It’s a small rectangular tab with the word “follow” on it, and it’s usually hanging around the bottom right hand corner (though it may display anywhere on the border of my blog, depending upon which devise you are using.

When you do so, you’ll be able to read my latest posts in the “reader” of your WordPress blog.

Web Design Made easy

Well, it finally happened. I took my Web Design Business “Online.”  At first, I just approached friends and close associates about by Web Design Business. But as the compliments began rolling in, I knew I needed to take things to the next level.

Pounding on church doors with “no one home” wasn’t working very well. Since I understand Search Engine Optimiztion, the best choice seemed to be letting others find me online.

Will it work? Will they find me? Great as I am at SEO, I know that the field of Web Design is fiercely competitive. I know my work is good, but without great SEO, I have to rely on referrals only.

So today, I decided to GO FOR IT and try to get on the first page of Google with my business.

Yes, I know that the only other search term that might be harder to rank in might be something like, “SEO”, but I still believe I can do it.

I believe it.

Think that doesn’t work? Oh, yes! Yes it DOES work! But only if you really really believe.

Will the favor fairies dump free goodies in your lap if you just believe? No. But if you believe in the One who believes in you, all things are possible.

 

 

Successful Marketing

Alot of you have been asking questions every since I took my business “live” on the web.

Questions like: “Wow! Sue! I just saw the church website and I was surprised! I…I didn’t KNOW you did...that…Um…how long have you been, doing what you…do??

Then there comes the inevitable subtle hint of could I , um, maybe, like, show them how to do it?

As though cranking out websites just sort of “comes” to people in their dreams.

I earnestly wish I could get people to ask the right question. And here’s what it should be…

Question: How can I be successful at everything and anything?

I want you to know, reader, that there is absolutely nothing, and I mean nothing, that you can’t do if it meets the right criteria.

Criteria number 1.  Is this what you are meant to do?

#2. Is this what you WANT to do?

#3. Are you willing to do ONE simple thing to make your dream happen? Because if you are, if you are willing to do one step, and one step only, then you can

Build websites

Make money

Be famous

Be happy (not that the above will guarantee happiness).

But, really now…what do you want. What do you really, really want. Are you thinking about it?

Good. Because now, you are ready for the next step.

It’s got a name. It’s acronym is WIT and here’s what it stands for:
