Successful law firms know there’s more to running their business than just practicing law. They must also wear the hat of a marketer if they want to get more clients and increase their billable hours. Now, technology like ChatGPT is making that job easier than ever.
Law Firms, It’s Time to Meet ChatGPT
ChatGPT is an artificial intelligence (AI) platform that users can engage with to solicit responses to basic inquiries, translate texts and even draft content. While still a relatively new technology, ChatGPT is highly advanced and may be a boon to law firms everywhere.
It’s not foolproof and the responses it produces must be checked for accuracy, but the results ChatGPT delivers can serve as a very useful starting point for much of your law firm’s content needs. Here are some ways law firms can leverage AI to boost their marketing efforts and increase efficiency within their practice:
- Improve the content on your website – If your website is slim on content, ChatGPT can suggest relevant new pages to add. The result? Improved web content will drive more organic traffic to your site, and that means more clients.
- Generate blog topics – Providing resources and educating clients is one of the best ways to drum up new business for your law firm. You can do this by posting helpful content on your site’s blog. But how do you come up with topics? Just ask ChatGPT.
- Draft email content to potential clients – ChatGPT can help write email templates. For example, you can create a personalized follow-up email to clients who recently joined your mailing list.
- Write social media posts – Your prompt to ChatGPT could be something like, “Write a LinkedIn post about what to look for when hiring a lawyer.” Then, review, revise and share. Done.
- Follow up to client feedback and reviews – Whether you received a less-than-flattering review or 5 stars, respond to the review in seconds by using ChatGPT to craft your reply.
There are some rather large concerns with scant case law to answer for it – namely, who owns intellectual property created by Artificial Intelligence? – but using ChatGPT as a sounding board for what marketing material you should create is an excellent use for the tool today.
Saving time while improving efficiencies and marketing efforts is the name of the game for efficient law firms. AI technology like ChatGPT can make the day-to-day task of growing your business more manageable – and even a little fun as you sit back and be wowed by its capabilities.
