Maybe you’re managing social media profiles as, or on behalf of, a law firm. There’s a chance you’re reading this just because you’re following what we produce here at WTC (if so, thank you.) It may be that you’re just curious about the way social media profiles are run in the field of law.

In Kate’s last conversion roundup earlier this month, she covered a slew of helpful articles about landing pages. For the week of 3/19 to 3/26, I’m broadening our horizons to different subjects that might not immediately come to mind when it comes to conversion.

On today’s agenda, we ask: Is your copy helping you convert? Are you channeling the dark side in social media ads? Are you trying to boost conversion on a lousy budget?

Read on to discover what I think offers this week’s advice best...

There’s a good chance that if you logged online to do anything today, at some point you clicked an empty box. You thought of what you wanted to do, and you rattled off a few characters on your keyboard. With a click and a tap, you were presented with millions of possibilities -- but you probably just picked something from the first page.

Not everyone has the time and resources to invest in a great mobile website.

Last weekend I went to my favorite Mexican restaurant’s website to check their hours. They’re called Jalapeños, and they’re a standby whenever the mood strikes for chiles rellenos.

Granted, their website is a huge step up from those business owners who think that putting a sign on their front door is all they need to draw in customers. And as a fan of the business, it didn’t turn me away. I already know their food...

Welcome to another WTC Conversion Roundup! This week, I decided I’d buckle down on a more specific topic than “conversions” and chose to look out for new resources focusing on landing pages. I found five awesome articles published between 3/6 and 3/12 (and one published on 3/5. Please forgive me.)

You’re busy working when across the cubicle aisle you hear your coworker sneeze.


Great. They’re getting a cold. And since they can’t be bothered with covering their nose, millions of infectious droplets are flying into the air every time they sneeze. It’s only a matter of time before you catch it.

“If a man knows not to which port he sails, no wind is favorable.” ― Seneca
