As a Suffolk County criminal defense lawyer, my extensive legal experience means I often have a unique take on justice in America and in New York, where I work. I love discussing the issues of the day, both with other attorneys and laypeople. My blog mainly serves to share information with the general public - reducing co [facebook]mplex legal jargon into digestible bites of useful information for everyday people and Wordpress has been choice of platform. But for professionals, Wordpress is more than just a blog-hosting site. Here are my 3 Wordpress tips for lawyers and other professionals.

Wordpress tips for lawyers and professionals

1. Always include a Call to Action 


Don't forget that amid all the information about yourself and your work, you include a distinct call to action. What is a call to action? It's what makes the user do what you want to them to do. Case in point, if you are a physician and you want to encourage visitors to make appointments, nothing does a better job than a great call to action button titled "Make Appointment" placed prominently on your Wordpress site.

2. Promote your email list 


Use plugins to create an email catching sign up form and promote it on your site. This is especially important for professionals, as your email list is a great way to drive traffic to your blog and create awareness of your service in the back of the minds of your subscribers. Email is the best form of marketing there is and integrating such a plugin is very simple with Wordpress.

3. Find the right theme 


The easiest way to get started with Wordpress is to choose a theme. These themes are essentially packs of skins and plugins that provide the basic look and feel of your website. In choosing a theme for your professional page, ensure that it captures a clean, professional aesthetic and that it's easy to use. If you're unfamiliar with HTML or other coding languages, many Wordpress themes include the Visual Composer plugin, a neat way to edit your pages without needing to rely on code.
