There is Power in Keeping it Personal


According to Harvard Business Review, the most effective way to connect with clients is at an emotional level, tapping into their fundamental motivations and fulfilling their deep, often unspoken emotional needs.

Does your law firm create this type of experience for customers in order to bolster your client base? If not, here’s what you need to do.

Emotional Connection

In order to have an emotional connection, you must first create a personal connection. Despite the mostly detached and screen-driven world we live in today, people still crave it. Humans are fundamentally social animals; they possess a powerful need for communication, connection and a sense of belonging.

That being said, there is nothing more impersonal than having to send an email to get hold of a law firm or hearing a static “leave your message at the tone” when no one picks up. This especially rings true when clients, or even potential clients, are distressed. Anyone should be able to reach and communicate with real human voices in their time of need.

Empathy IS Genuine

This is where empathy comes in.  When clients call, there should be someone on the other end of the line ready to listen, understand, and show empathy.

Hiring and training the right staff to follow these types of procedures takes a lot of time. Between legal intake centers and your own staff being the voice of your law firm, it is important that clients are left with a genuine and personalized experience.

      “The Numbers are striking. We switched to Alert Communications in April 2014 and since then we have seen an increase in “cases opened” in the amount of 47%. The biggest help has been in getting competent and quick help with Spanish-speaking callers. All of their services are so much better than we had before. We are just simply very grateful for what Alert Communications does for us.”
