So ... you have a brand-spanking-new lawyer website to represent you, and you are ready for all the traffic and inquiries to come pouring in.

Now what? When do visitors start coming to your website? When do those precious leads and inquiries come in? Well, if you don't have a website promotion plan in place, it's going to be a long wait.

You have to think about the situation from a numerical standpoint. When you put a new website online, it's nearly the equivalent of putting another grain of sand on a beach. Sure it's there, but does it really matter? Will anyone notice its arrival? Clearly not.

This is why you have to be active with your web promotion efforts. You need your website to be more than a grain of sand on the beach ... you need it to be noticed. You need the site to bring in traffic and, ultimately, convert that traffic into viable leads that you can follow up on.

Here are some things you can do to promote your legal website so it doesn't become just another grain of sand on the beach:

Web Promotion Ideas for Lawyers

When your site is up and running, send out a press release through the online PR sites such as PRweb.com.
Start an article-publishing campaign to educate the public on your particular area of legal practice. Distribute your material through article sites like EzineArticles.com and link back to your website from each article.
Submit your new site to web directories for promotional purposes as well as long-term search engine visibility.
Be proactive about search engine optimization (or pay somebody to do it on your behalf). This way you will maximize the website traffic you get from Google, Yahoo, MSN, etc.
Start a lawyer blog to help keep your website fresh. Publish new information to the blog on a regular basis, and submit it to blog directories.
Most importantly, fill your website with plenty of quality content. After all, it doesn't matter if people find you online if they don't like what they find.
In general, just be active online when trying to promote your new web presence. The more active you are, the more visible you'll be to your key audience.

I hope you've enjoyed this short guide to website promotion and that it helps get your wheels turning. Remember, being active online is the first step to being visible online. So combine some of the techniques I've listed above with your own ideas. Create a well-rounded web presence, and the traffic will come.
