SSDI Leads Expected to Pay Higher Legal Fees in 2017
Attorney Fred Tabak of Tabak Law in Milwaukee, WI moved into Social Security disability law 30 years into his legal career. He experimented with TV commercials, placing ads on billboards, and worked with several other online lead-gen companies until he finally found the client prospecting solution he was looking for: “I’ve now eliminated all but LeadingResponse,” Tabak says. We initially met up with Tabak at a disability conference in Baltimore, then we signed him up for 200 Social Security disability (SSDI) leads per month. Tabak says, “LeadingResponse is coming through as promised. I now spend half my time calling new leads, and many are excellent.” Because there’s a COLA increase, raised SGA threshold and higher maximum monthly SSDI benefits for 2017, Social Security disability advocates and attorneys will enjoy a 1.8% increase in fees, too.
Targeted Online Marketing Attracts Higher Quality SSDI Leads
Tabak isn’t alone in his struggle to attract new SSDI leads — especially online. There’s a reason the Internet has been compared to the old West. With seemingly endless competitors, cheap solutions and pages of content promising virtually anything you can think of, getting your business to the top of relevant search results (even when searching by location or using specific keywords) can be quite difficult. Law firms seeking prospective clientele interested in filing for Social Security disability benefits can find the whole lead intake process time-consuming, costly and frustrating. When your specialty is law instead of lead generation, why not leave that step up to a company whose proven track record spans two decades?
LeadingResponse specializes in connecting attorneys with people who need help navigating the complicated path toward winning SSDI benefits. Since location matters when it comes to applying for benefits, we keep the number of clients who can purchase our SSDI leads in any given territory very limited, so the prospects you’ll get are always exclusive. Generally, we deal with only one or two partners per market in a county, allowing you to access highly motivated clientele who need professional legal help applying for benefits — many of whom prefer to meet with an attorney in person.
How We Get You Qualified SSDI Leads
With 20+ years in the business, LeadingResponse understands how to effectively market legal services in order to attract highly qualified SSDI leads – both online and through more traditional avenues. Since certain target demographics respond differently to various forms of media with regards to marketing, our team of analysts is constantly changing the way we attract and engage with SSDI leads in order to guarantee the best possible outcome for our clients. Our in-house team uses acquisition tools like search engine marketing, social media, display ads, affiliate partners, email, TV and much more. Plus, we create new and engaging content on a regular basis covering the current Social Security disability benefits climate and any laws that could be helpful to applicants. And with consistent conversion optimization and quality testing for each client, we make regular adjustments to ensure the leads we provide are more likely to convert into clients.
But gathering SSDI leads is only the first step. After all, you can only convert prospects if they apply and then qualify for benefits. That’s why we pre-screen all our SSDI leads with a brief online form in order to provide quality, highly motivated leads that are likely to become clients.
Why LeadingResponse Works So Well for SSD Benefit Attorneys
SSDI leads are a completely different type of clientele than say, personal injury or mass tort. First of all, they’re more likely to be rejected on first application and seek professional help during the appeal or re-application process. Since most eligible SSDI leads are a bit older, we use specific keywords to target them – so more than 65% of our delivered SSDI leads are over the age of 50. And if you’ve got a lean staff or need to scale up quickly to handle your newly increased lead intake volume? Our U.S.-based call center operates 24/7 and includes highly trained personnel who can reach your potential clients within minutes to provide them with information and answer their questions. With a 65% contact rate and average intake of 70%, we can turn your leads into clients without any long-term commitment from your firm.
Not interested in using the call center? No problem! Take advantage of our completely optional, yet free Lead Management System (LMS) software to enjoy customized reporting features, a dedicated account manager focused on helping your firm optimize conversions, and greater than 80% returned retainer rates, since the LMS automates all paperwork delivery, signing and filing taks to help streamline your client intake process. Best of all, our LMS software integrates with most popular case management software, such as Needles, MyCase, Prevail and Crocodile.
