Using craigslist for Marketing Your Law Firm’s Legal Services to Consumers – Free Online Marketing for Law Firms Tool #7

Hi Friends,

craigslist… sure you are thinking that this is where you post jobs, buy used furniture or read personals (at least according to my friends 🙂

But did you know you can also post and present the legal services you offer on CraigsList… for Free! (at least for now). Posting on craigslist works great for attorneys looking to reach the consumer audience – eg personal injury lawyers, wills and trusts attorneys, real estate law firms etc…

Here is what you do… Go to your city’s craigslist home page (see links below). Then find the services section and under there you will see a link to legal. Click on this legal link.

craigslist - services - legal

You will see a bunch of posts that look like those above. Most will be from other attorneys offerring their services.

Read through a few posts to get an idea of what looks good for your own post and then click on the post link in the top right to post to the section. Write a post, confirm your email and confirm your want your post to go live. It will take anywhere from 5-15 mintues, and then your legal services post wil be up for all to see.

Your post will looking something like this (without the graphic smudges, added by me). Present ther services you offer, your qualifications etc…

And a few notes… Newer posts will show up higher than older posts, so you will need to make a new post of your services periodically. But read the craigslist terms of use and do not spam the boards. There is only one legal services section, so the personal injury posts will show up right along side the immigration law posts.

Only post legal services in the legal services area in a locality you actually serve. Again read the craigslist terms of use for more details.

Below is the current list of craigslist USA localities, but if you do not see your city, and it is big enough to be considered a metro area, keep check back, as craigslist is continuously adding more local sites (and I have not included any of the non-USA localites below).
