Episode 298 – How to Build a Barrier Against Bad Reviews

Episode 298 – How to Build a Barrier Against Bad Reviews

Bad reviews are inevitable—there’s no way around them. But this doesn’t mean they have to negatively impact you or your firm’s reputation, and it certainly doesn’t mean that you should avoid asking for reviews for fear you’ll receive a negative one. The more positive reviews you have, the less those occasional bad reviews will have an impact on your overall rating, and more importantly, on the overall perception of you formed in the minds of prospective clients.

So, how do you get positive reviews…how do you begin building a barrier against the effects of bad ones? According to Richard, it’s pretty simple: just ask for them, but make sure you ask at the right time. He explains when that time is and why, and how to implement a system for making sure you get good reviews on a continual basis.

Don’t let less-experienced attorneys take your clients simply because they have more reviews than you. Want help? Call (888) 225-8594 or visit speakeasymarketinginc.com.

About Richard Jacobs

My name is Richard Jacobs, and I've discovered quite a bit about the plight of solo practitioners and small, 2-5 attorney firms like yours these past 12 years.

I've come to understand the unique challenges in marketing ethically and effectively that attorneys face because I have:

  • Helped over 180 attorneys author their own practice area book and become the 'implied expert' in their practice area
  • Helped hundreds of attorneys successfully navigate Google's search algorithm changes, growing their websites from 2 potential clients calling a month to 4+ calls per DAY for some clients.
  • Interviewed and promoted over 507 attorneys nationwide, in practice areas such as:
  • DUI / DWI
  • Family Law
  • Criminal Defense
  • Bankruptcy
  • Auto Accidents
  • Social Security Disability
  • Slip & Falls (Premises Liability)
  • Real Estate
  • Estate Planning / Probate
  • Wage and Hour Claims
  • Expungements / Post Conviction Relief

Before you decide to invest in your marketing, it makes sense to first request your complimentary, custom, no obligation video website review.
