Legal technology front-runner, Clio, has unveiled an avant-garde integration with Google Ads. Titled “Google’s Local Services Ads for Clio“, this fresh marketing solution is set to redefine how attorneys expand their practices. By marrying Clio’s expertise in legal technology with Google’s advertising prowess, lawyers now have an uncomplicated route to amplify their firm’s presence on Google Search, engage potential local clientele, and deftly manage their ad budgets, all from the comfort of the legal realm’s premier centralized tech hub.
Jack Newton, CEO and Founder of Clio, emphasizes the shift in legal demand from traditional to online avenues, with Google Search becoming the epicenter. “Legal demand is moving from the offline world to online, with most of that demand happening on Google Search. Our research indicates that more than half of clients find a lawyer by navigating online channels—meaning that a law firm’s reviews, website, and digital presence are increasingly critical to law firm growth. Working with Google to embed the management of Local Services Ads into Clio is a significant help to lawyers, allowing them to navigate a competitive advertising strategy that’s simple, affordable, and effective.”
The collaboration merges Google Ads’ proficiency in generating local leads with Clio Grow, Clio’s renowned client acquisition tool for attorneys. This empowers lawyers to expertly manage their ad expenses and effortlessly connect with leads springing from pertinent search prompts. Notable features include a pay-per-lead model, budget caps, enhanced Google Search visibility, automated lead-to-prospective client conversions in Clio Grow, a user-friendly dashboard for ad campaign management, and eligibility for the esteemed Google Screened Badge, assuring clients of their interaction with a certified Google-endorsed enterprise.
Google’s alignment with Clio aims to demystify the often convoluted journey attorneys face in client acquisition. Through mutual efforts, a tailored solution emerges, seamlessly integrated into legal client engagement systems. Lawyers, by harnessing the combined might of Clio’s platform and Google’s Local Services Ads, stand at the threshold of broadening their client circle, extending their influence, and magnifying their revenue streams.
This collaboration exemplifies the transformative power of integrating tech and advertising in niche sectors. By bridging the gap between legal services and potential clients, Clio and Google are setting a gold standard for industry-specific digital marketing strategies.
