As good and as experienced your legal firm can be, it can still be hard to earn the trust of your clients if you’re not active on social media. Some of the most successful legal firms even dedicate big marketing budgets for their social media marketing campaigns because they know it is one of the best ways to expand their reach presence and influence. But what if your legal firm has just started out and you don’t have the finances yet to invest in social media marketing strategies and tools used by other firms?
Lucky for you, it is possible to improve the ranking of your legal firm through social media on your own and without spending too much. Here are some of them.

For example, the long-tail keyword “lawyer in Clearwater, FL” provides more detailed information to the search engines which in turn produces more accurate results rather than using the keyword “lawyer” alone.
It’s not that hard to find long-tail keywords you can use to include in your website’s contents.
- Type a keyword to search in Google, for instance, “lawyer.” Scroll down to the bottom of the page, and you’ll see the related searches. You can use those as long-tail keywords for your contents.

Once you found long-tail keywords, be sure to use them every time you create new contents. You can also add them to all your existing contents as well so all your web pages will have the potential to rank high when these keywords are used.
