Milam Law Firm is a Georgia law firm quickly becoming the next source for personal injury law. How did this once small-town firm become a competitive digital power brand? Learn how 1GS faced their challenges, provide solutions, and the end results below.

We began working with Milam Law in February 2021. Philip Milam serves the community of Buford, Georgia, for well over 26 years! His personal injury expertise helped thousands of cases involving autos, pedestrians, and more.

But to even expand!

The Challenges Milam Was Facing:

For a long time, most of Philip Milam law’s clients came from referrals and word of mouth. But big competitors were coming into the area.  Many began leveraging massive ad budgets to spread across social media.

Meaning the pipeline of clients was coming to a dry, sputtering halt.

 Philip knew he had to transform his digital presence to meet his prospects online.

But years of experience didn’t prepare him for the ins and outs of digital marketing. That is where our team at 1GS Digital Agency came in with our Law Firm Marketing System.


Our Law Firm Growth System Solution & Results

Our Law Firm Growth System is customizable to fit any law firm client’s budget, goals, and unique personality. We focus on three main areas:

  1. Ideal Client Profile Analysis and Buyer Persona Creation
  2. Website Audit
  3. Social Media Audit

We took a deep dive to understand who Philip Milam’s ideal clients are. And where we could find them online. The more information we extracted, the better prepared we were to utilize spending!

Once we understood who his ideal client was, we needed to build a website that spoke to his audience.

Website Audit And Creation

Website Design

Milam Law Firm’s new look represents clean lines with contrasting colors of blue and yellow and gold. But aside from the color scheme was the idea of an easier-to-understand user interface.

Scrolling through, you’ll notice a simple layout separated by small mallets. And each body of the text is only large enough to get vital information out.

It was more about introducing Philip Milam and his values. Rather than being sold services, we sold the promise of law being practiced for the sake of integrity. Not for your money.

Website Tracking

With the user interface improved, we witnessed the growth of Milam Law online. From July 1st to September 30th, 2021, Milam Law firm saw:

    • 469 visits, 100% being new users.
    • A bounce Rate of approx 60%
