TOP 10 MISTAKES BANKRUPTCY LAWYERS MAKE THAT KILL THEIR LEAD CONVERSION RATE AND HOW TO FIX IT

Presented by:


Stephen Fairley
The Rainmaker Institute

Thursday, May 19th 6:00 pm – 6:50 pm

Lead generation is big business for bankruptcy attorneys. You have companies who will sell you SEO, PPC, advertising, and PPL (pay per lead), but who can train you and your team on best practice for converting more of these costly leads into more paying clients?

  • The 5 stages of lead conversion
  • 7 specific strategies to immediately double your lead conversion rate
  • How to fix your “no show” problem of appointments who don’t show up
  • Implementing simple systems to track your leads
  • How to handle pricing questions and why you should never discuss your fees over the phone
  • Improving client communication that leads to ethics complaints
