My Year-to-Date Revenue Went Up 41% Over the Previous Year
After joining GLM in March 2017, my mindset began to change as I allowed myself to consider some other ideas and be more open to change. I've worked harder this year than I have in several years, but I'm working smarter. I'm also having more fun in my practice! For those looking to implement some marketing changes at their firms, there is no time like the present. Map out a strategy and get after it. And, importantly, schedule some time away from the office to work "on the business" instead of "in the business."

One Campaign Brought in Two Clients and 19 Potential New Clients in the First Six Weeks
Don't be overwhelmed by all of the great marketing ideas being generated by GLM and its members each month. Rather, take one idea and work on it without being distracted by all of the other ideas. Focus on the proper implementation and use of the marketing piece before moving on to the next thing. Then pay attention to the performance of the piece as you're working on subsequent ideas so you can tweak as needed.

Frustrated That My Former Law Firm Wouldn't Implement GLM Marketing
When my wife, Shelly, and I started my solo practice in 2014 we decided to go all in with GLM-style marketing and practice management. We purchased Infusionsoft and used it to build our campaigns from day one. GLM has changed my entire work life and personal life. Shelly and I have financial security and are planning to purchase a vacation home in the next two years. Since 2014, my gross revenues have more than tripled and they were up 67% in 2016 vs. 2015. I am an entrepreneur lawyer running my own firm, controlling my own destiny, and we're flourishing.

There is No Reason Why You Can't Do It Too
I have been a member of Great Legal Marketing since October 2016. I’ve been in practice for 15 years and opened my own practice 13 years ago. Like everybody who’s started their own law office, it comes with great difficulty, but lots of personal rewards. In these 13 years I’ve had many ups and many downs. I started Great Legal Marketing with the hopes of smoothing out the downs and keeping with an upward trend. I have tried all sorts of marketing techniques throughout my 13 years. The ones I have been successful with, but didn’t keep consistent with, have been the tenements of Great Legal Marketing. I used to do my own newsletter 2 to 3 times a year, however I had to stop as I got busier because I didn’t have the time to do it myself. I had spent money on SEO and pay per click in the past, without much traction. I had also done direct marketing to those had been arrested but found in recent years that had been unsuccessful. Since starting Great Legal Marketing, I have written a book and 4 special reports. Marketing to your own clients really has been a way that I have been able to boost business in the last six months. In July we sent our first newsletter through the Newsletter Pro with great fanfare. But it’s not just enough to send out a newsletter, I have found it is important to generate feedback on that newsletter and on how I am doing. For every former client who has called me since we put out the newsletter, I have asked if they get the newsletter and or email blasts. The responses overwhelmingly yes and that they enjoy it. The most important thing I do with this kind of response is ask if they would rate me on Google and Avvo. The template provided by Great Legal Marketing has been wonderful. Not only do I reach out to my former clients with it, I reach out to my current clients after completing their case. As suggested, I have even send it to perspective clients that did not retain me if they liked my advice. It’s surprising that I get someone to give me five stars and they hadn’t even retained me, but it has happened. I have clients reach me at Google, Avvo, and Martindale Hubbell. Not all the time will I get reviews on each site, but if I get one five-star review it does wonders. While I did not get a ton of business from my website prior to getting these reviews, I am certainly getting a lot more calls inquiries and new clients because they see I am highly rated. Currently I have 34 five-star reviews on Google and 39 five-star reviews on Avvo. One goal is to reach 100 five-star reviews on Google by the end of 2018. My advice to anybody who has a website and a client base is to get your clients to sing your praises on Google and Avvo. There is no reason why you can’t do it too.

Do You Want To Learn What They Should Have Taught Lawyers In Law School?
It's very simple. Do you want to grow your law firm to the point where you can have more time for yourself? Do you want to enjoy the practice of law again and not feel like you're in the "rat race?" Do you want to learn what they should have taught lawyers in law school about the business and marketing of law practice? Is that you? That was me. But not anymore. One of the best decisions I’ve made in my practice was to become a part of Great Legal Marketing.

Great Ideas From a Real-Life Lawyer Who Practices What He Preaches
Great ideas from a real-life lawyer who practices what he preaches. If you're looking for "get rich quick" schemes, this isn't the place for you. However, if you want to learn how to provide value to your clients and your community, this is the place to be.

Great Legal Marketing Has Real Common Sense and Proven Ideas To Improve and Expand a Law Practice
Great Legal Marketing has real common sense and proven ideas to Improve and expand a law practice. About six months ago I bought one of their publications, a book called “Renegade Lawyer Marketing”. In October I attended their annual summit meeting in Arlington Virginia. I listened to presentations from attorneys from all over the nation who had implemented their strategies and had great results. I spoke to more than one of these attorneys and learned even more and became more convinced I could take my law firm to a new level. I also saw convincing presentations from some outstanding marketing vendor service providers. The Summit was a great experience for me and the best thing I have done for my law practice in a long time. I was convinced and impressed enough that I made arrangements to return to Virginia just last week to attend a Fast Implementation Boot Camp. I took with me two of my staff members. This was an opportunity to meet for a day-and-a-half with Ben Glass and his staff in a smaller group setting. This event was also super helpful. The cost of it was unbelievably modest. Yet Ben and his very knowledgeable, enthusiastic, and engaging staff were all there. Each of these quality and talented individuals presented. That was important because my staff and I got to know each of them a bit. It gave me confidence that they would be available to assist my staff In the implementation of our marketing plan. My employees and I left this event with specific hands-on instruction that if implemented correctly will significantly improve our law practice and bottom line. Attorney and law firm marketing expert Ben Glass (who is the real deal) takes the time to answer all questions really cares that each participant succeeds. Unless you are my competitor (Family Law in Southern California) I highly recommend Great Legal Marketing.

Just the Thing I Needed to Propel My Skills Forward
Ben, Charley, and the whole team are very dedicated to their clients' success. This shows through their sincere attention to your questions and immense passion for all things "legal marketing". I have a marketing background, but I am new to the legal industry arena and their Fast Action Boot Camp was just the thing I needed to propel my skills forward and apply my newly found knowledge to my firm. I'd highly recommend working with them, attending their seminars, and most of all, asking them questions! Their professionalism is outstanding; you will not be disappointed.
This week has been a real eye-opener for the good
This week has been a real eye-opener for the good. By noon yesterday, I had already had six new files and I can directly attribute four of them to the new way of marketing I implemented after the conference. A motorcycle wreck (broken bones) was directly from a book order from about two weeks ago and he finally got around to coming in. Pepsi truck hit a lady's car and she had delayed getting a lawyer. Her passenger gave her my book and told her to call me. The funny thing is I don't know the passenger, have no idea how he got my book and he is actually being represented by a TV lawyer ( I guess he doesn't like that lawyer). A car accident case referred by former client-and I am confident the client would not remember my name if not for the newsletter (and I confirmed with the new client that my former client still lived at the same place-so I know he is getting my newsletter). A car accident case who got to me via AVVO. That is my first one from that site. And I had never heard of AVVO until the conference. Just thought you might want an update from the front lines!! Thanks for the good ideas!

I consider the information taught to be extremely powerful and I don’t want you to know about it.
Please don’t attend Ben Glass’s Great Legal Marketing summit. Especially if you live in Missouri or Illinois. I consider the information taught to be extremely powerful and I don’t want you to know about it. I want it all to myself. Please heed my advice; my wife and kids rely on me to provide for them. Thanks in advance for your cooperation.
