I recently saw a video: Consultant: Law Firm Revenues & Profits Dropping, Layoffs Ahead. It is not an upbeat video for lawyers or law firms. If the consultant is right, now more than ever is the time to brainstorm ideas to make your clients “Raving Fans.”
Your customers (clients) are a revolt waiting to happen. They’re only satisfied because their expectations are so low and because no one else is doing any better. Your customer (client) slogan should be: No Worse than the Competition.
Our Service is No Worse Than Other Law Firms
Blanchard and Bowles suggest a simple three step approach;
- Decide what you want:
- Discover what the customer (client) wants; and,
- Deliver the vision, plus one.
Raving Fans is an inexpensive 132 page guide to addressing the concerns raised by corporate general counsel, and should be required reading for every lawyer in your firm.
If you want more specific ideas, go back and read a blog I posted a couple of years ago: The Way I Tried to Make Our Client “Raving Fans:” It Just Might Work for You.
