Business Awards Finalist for Solicitors Title!
All of the team at Solicitors Title are delighted that the firm is a finalist in this year’s Western Gazette Business Awards. Partner, Richard James, said “having only had our office in Yeovil for just over a year, this is great local recognition for what we originally set out to do in opening our second office.”
This year, Solicitors Title is a finalist in the Best Business Website category, a new award for 2014. The majority of law firm websites that we looked at simply talked about the firm and how expert they were in various areas, but they seemed to miss the point that the purpose of their website is to help existing and prospective clients understand how hiring a lawyer can help them, whether they have a personal issue or a business one.
We build long-term relationships with our clients and therefore needed the website to reflect how we not only add value to our clients’ interests but also to demonstrate how we manage to achieve this by being different from our competitors. Our charging structure reflects a modern approach and we generally take a longer-term view when talking to new clients about moving their business to us, as a number of Somerset clients have now done – we’re not just another service-provider; we act as a business partner and this seems to be working.
Although we knew a number of web companies (understandable given our specialisms in technology and media law), we needed a company that would build us a site that was much more than just a glossy brochure. The site had to work too; from effective search-engine optimisation to social media integration.
So we chose Purplebox Media over a number of other web development companies, as we had the confidence they would deliver for us. On 7 November last year, at our opening event shared with many clients, professional contacts and friends, Purplebox Media helped us launch the site live at our event held at the Yeovil Innovation Centre. “Not only did they meet the tight deadline” says Richard James, “but they also worked extremely hard to ensure that they delivered the effective online presence that we needed as part of our future strategy. Managing Director Richard Franklin and his team really went the extra mile for us and therefore we would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone needing a web company that takes time to understand their needs and is able to deliver options effectively, always in a way that you understand.”
We wish all of the finalists the best of luck for Thursday, at the awards ceremony to be held at Westlands Leisure Complex, where the winners will be announced!
