5 Reasons Why Your Divorce Services Business Needs A Website

In the age of information, having a website is not a “nice-to-have” for a divorce services business; it’s essential.

Your website acts as your digital storefront, your marketing platform and your social media hub, enabling you to reach, convince and influence your potential divorce services clients.

Why your divorce services business needs a website

1. You Need the Power of the Internet to Reach Your Audience

The Internet has fundamentally changed the way in which people find, discover, share, shop, and connect. Translation: Your customers are no longer waiting for you to find them – they are actively looking to find you!

  • More than half of all U.S. residents and more than three-quarters of all U.S. adults are online.

Your potential clients and search engines love content generated through blog posts. For potential clients, blog articles help them understand your services and stay up on the latest happenings with your business and peaceful divorce news. Search engines use blogs to index each blog post page for specific keywords, and then direct people searching on your keywords to your website. Blogging builds traffic and awareness of your business.

  • B2C (Business to Customer) companies that blog generate 88% more leads per month than those that do not.

2. You Need to Advocate Your Peaceful Divorce Philosophy and Business

Most people are not aware of the divorcing options available to them today. Peaceful divorce, while not a new divorce option, has not been around as long as the traditional legal establishment. For many people, the usual default action after deciding to get a divorce is to go get a lawyer.

Having a voice to communicate your divorce philosophy to your local market is really only possible with a website presence. The cost of having your own website is the least expensive way to advocate for peaceful divorce and promote your own peaceful divorce business services.

Today lawyers, mediation firms and online-forms-only companies are using the Internet to grow their business. You need to be doing the same just to maintain an equal competitive position in your marketplace.

3. You Need to Demonstrate Caring for Your Audience

Divorce is an emotional and life-changing event. Even if the divorcing parties are reasonably amicable, it is human nature for people to want more than a computer and a legal form to help end their marriage. The most important element for anyone considering or seeking a divorce is to find someone who cares. Adversarial lawyers and online form services do not care. Divorce With Dignity Providers do.

Divorce With Dignity Providers not only care, they provide personal service in a welcoming and safe place as they guide clients through the divorce process. This personal, caring approach provided by legal professionals who are knowledgeable and experienced in traversing the legal maze is the best divorce option for those seeking a peaceful divorce. There is no better way to network with this target audience than with social media. People seeking advice on divorcing use social media in the same way they use offline referrals from their friends to obtain information and recommendations about where to get help.

4. You Need to Engage With Your Audience

Your website can do this better than any other marketing tool at the lowest possible cost. Internet marketing tactics such as search engine optimization (SEO), blogging, social media, website lead generation and lead nurturing are more cost-effective than traditional forms of marketing, and give you the opportunity to build relationships online.

Recognizing that your sales prospects have active social media accounts on Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn it is no longer optional – it is a “must”.
